Shh! Don’t tell anyone that I’m telling you this!!

Coming soon to a Gingerscraps near you …

INSD is coming and you need to have your selfie ready, clicking finger primed and stretched, and the desire to have a lot of fun!

But, before all that arrives, the designers still have some other great things to share with you. You’re going to love the new templates from several designers, and some beautiful kits of different themes! So many lovely products coming out this week!

Before I show you the goodies, I have to share some layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “Dream Big


Created by scrappinbella. Always so jealous of the Florida shots. Makes me miss living there! I love how the shot of the rocket is broken up with the multiple frames! And the cluster work is just outstanding!


Created by hclappy. I love how the lighting in the pictures matches the kit perfectly!


Created by JillW. I really love the yellow background with all of the white space. I also love the picture done in black and white. So perfect.

P52: Using Evernote

First off, I apologize for the long period of time between blog posts. I’m honestly so behind and it’s not even funny. Things have gotten so hectic around here, courtesy of just life, 😆 I’m sure everyone knows what I’m talking about.

Since I am so behind (I just finished Week 08, so I have 8 weeks worth of layouts to make up! To do that, I’m using Evernote!

That’s the screenshot of my desktop with the app. I just love it! I can create a whole page dedicated to just each week’s highlights. So much fun!

Pinspiration | The Movies

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

Happy Scrappy Saturday everyone!! Do you ever need a bit of inspiration to get those creative scrappy juices flowing? Let me tell you, I sure do! A lot of the times looking around the gallery helps. So does Pinterest. I was looking for a bit of inspiration and searched for “scrapbooking ideas“.

Scrolling down I found this really cool traditional layout with movie ticket stubs! How cool is that? I got to thinking how that could be taken and turned into a digital scrapbooking layout. Here is the pin that got those ideas flowing.

I looked around a bit more and found some more ticket stub layouts:

How would you turn these into digital layouts? Easy! You can get everything you need to scrap any of these examples. Digital pockets, digital washi, or even go hybrid! Scrap everything you need and leave a place for an tangible pocket. Stick it in your layout book and add the ticket stubs. You can also scan those ticket stubs in and use them digitally. You know, cameras are so good now days that you can just snap a photo of the ticket stub if you do not have access to a scanner. Here are some products I found around the store to get those movie and ticket stub layouts going.
Magical Hollywood by Magical Scraps Galore!

 

Movie Night by Wimpychompers

 

Let’s Get Reel by Blue Heart Scraps

 

Now Showing by LuvEwe Designs

 

Plastic Pockets by Magical Scraps Galore!

His and Hers Frames by Kathryn Estry

 

Those are just a few of the items to get those layouts started. You can also scrap by the theme of the movie! Don’t forget concert tickets either. I cannot wait to scrap my movie tickets. I am going to save them up this summer and scrap the movies of our 2015 summer.

We would love to see your movie and ticket stub layouts! Make sure to load them up to the GingerScrap’s gallery and then come back here and link us up!

April is here. That means changes in the weather from one extreme to the other. Rain in one area. Snow in another. Basically, Mother Nature is saying stay home, cuddle up inside, and scrapbook. The designers are here to help you with that! They have released some wonderful kits this week, as well as some gorgeous templates! You’ll find something, for sure, that you just can’t do without!

Before I show you the goodies, I have to share some layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “Dream Big

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

Creative Style | Pocket Scrapbooking

GS_blog_CreativeStyle_Header

 

Hello scrappers! Are you having a good weekend? It is super busy over at my house. No time for scrapping for me. Sigh. That isn’t what we are here to talk about though. I am here to talk about scrapbooking styles. You know: fantasy, pocket, traditional, and everything in between. Some people scrap only one style. Some people (like myself) can scrap one style one day and another a next. I like to mix things up.

One thing I’ve really not scrapped is those great pocket pages. I love to cluster a bit too much. Those pages are lovely though! So neat, clean, and brought together. The perfect touch of ellies and patterned paper. Some of these layouts have photos and such tucked in actual pockets. Those are great! Others are just wonderfully blocked layouts. These layouts jump out of the galleries! So, that is what I did. I stalked the gallery and am here to show of some of those great pocket scrapbook pages that are filling the GingerScraps gallery.

03_17_14-Green by FarrahJobling might not be what you think of when you think, “pocket scrapbooking”. Except….she has that ADORABLE photo and journal card tucked in actual little pockets. Like I mentioned earlier. The use of patterned paper and that little hat element really grabbed my attention. Perfect kit and photo match!

Every Morning by Mandy King

Mojo by hclappy is what I think of when I think pocket scrapbooking. Those different size blocks but all put together beautifully. Great journaling blocks and just the touch of right elements. Of course…DONUTS! How can that not grab your attention?! Yum!

sisters_pocket_page_fb

sisters by weaselwatchr is a magnificent example of use of paper. Some people shy away from patterned paper. There is not one solid paper on here! It is done so beautifully.

Rainy Day by MommyScrapper proves that those pocket layouts don’t have to be straight lines! I LOVE the angle of this layout. Takes the everyday pocket layout and tilts it just a bit.

 

There you go. Just a little peek at some of the pocket pages that are filling up GingerScraps layout. They are super popular right now. Take a look around the galleries, grab some inspiration, and get to scrapping!

P52: Building Your Stash: St. Patrick’s Day

With certain holidays, you need a good assortment of things! You never know what’s going to happen, or how it can play into your day.

For my family, St. Patrick’s Day is a big one. My son’s birthday is on that day, so we always buy him a new shirt for it, and a lot of the decorations and themes involve it. It’s our little tradition, and thus far, he loves it! He gets so excited to see how we’ll incorporate it each year.

Here are just a few wonderful St. Patrick’s Day kits picked from the GS store:
