GingerBread Girl Inspiration | DigitalMcScrapper

Today we are going to get some inspiration from one of the talented GingerBread Girls. Today we are going to check out DigitalMcScrapper (aka Stephanie)’s gallery. She has the cutest kids and I enjoy seeing her layouts. I think you guys will too. Here are some of my favorite from her gallery:

 

 

 

 


 

WOW! Right?! All those lovely layouts are linked to her gallery. Make sure you run over and give her some love. While you are there, you can look around to see what grabs your attention. I know you will find some inspiration. One of my favorite things about Stephanie’s layouts (besides those darling little ones) is that she really knows how to fill a page. I am such a one to two photo scrappers. I really enjoy and get inspiration from seeing someone scrap lots of photos and fills a page.

Stephanie not only knows how to take advantage of space on her layout, she has wonderful clusters. She does not shy away from the fun and patterned papers; and has great title work.

I hope you find some great inspiration for your next layout. I really have no doubt that you will. Take a look at Stephanie’s gallery. Bookmark it! You will always find inspiration from it and the other GingerBread girls.

Let’s Celebrate Spring!

GS_blog_LetsCelebrate_Header

Spring! Spring sprung a few weeks ago here in the states. It is just now getting to feel like spring now where I live. Even if Spring has sprung or Fall is here and you just want to look back at those Spring photos and get them scrapped, I have some great products for you!

I don’t know if you have noticed, but it is like the store and gallery comes alive once Spring comes around. Such beautiful colors, themes and flowers fill the store! Of course there is a section dedicated to all things Spring in the store. You can find that HERE. Today though, I am going to pick a few out of the store that are my favorite and showcase them. All images are linked!

GingerBread Girl Inspiration: Colleen

Colleen

Good afternoon scrappers! Today we are going to be getting some digital scrapbooking inspiration from one of the GingerBread girls. One of the lead GingerBread girls to be exact! Today we are going to be taking a look at Colleen’s gallery.

 

Colleen’s gallery is packed full of real-life moments scrapped. Each layout is filled with great photos and fun themes! Colleen can really fill a page. She knows how to take a kit and use it to make her photos shine. Everything she seems to scrap really compliments each other. She also has some fantastic two-page layouts! Here are just a few examples of Colleen’s layouts. All images are linked. I hope you get some inspiration from these & if you have the time, leave her some love.

 

 

 

 

Great, right!

Creative Style | Green

GS_blog_CreativeStyle_Header

Hello scrappers. Today we are going to take a look at a creative style. Well, let me honest. It isn’t really a style so much as getting some inspiration from color.

There are many things that can make a layout stand out in the gallery. What grabs one person’s attention might not grab another’s. I could write multiple blog posts about what grabs mine. That being said, seeing a layout that has predominantly one color always grabs my attention.  Since we are edging up on St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to get some inspiration from the color green.

We are going to take a look at some pretty green images, some great digital scrapbooking layouts done up in green, and round it up with the latest green filled goodies from the store. If those do not do it for you, make sure you check out the Let’s Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day post from last week.

Now, here are some lovely images to get those creative juices flowing. Did you know there was a place you could get pretty nice stock photos for free? These images are from Pexels. (All photos on Pexels are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means the pictures are completely free to be used for any legal purpose.) I use them on my personal blog. I thought I would share with you guys while we get some inspiration for scrapping with green.

Fantastic right? I find inspiration for layouts in all kinds of places. Looking at beautiful photos are one of them. Want a bit more inspiration? Here are some layouts that are predominantly green. You know, to help get those ideas flowing! (all images are linked to their counterpart in the store. Go leave some loving!)

Are these not some lovely layouts! I know part of that is the great designers we have here at GingerScraps. These layouts are beautifully scrapped though. I hope you found at least some inspiration from today’s post. I will leave you with some great designs to get those green filled layouts scrapped. As usual, all images are linked to their counterpart. We actually have an entire location in the store just for GREEN items.

Be Pinspired | Winter Crafts

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

Hello scrappers! Welcome back from the maintenance downtime. I don’t know about you but I felt a little lost! I check GingerScraps at least once a day. However, during my down time I was looking around Pinterest. Because…duh! 🙂 With the past snow the east side of the states got last weekend, I thought some winter craft ideas would be a good idea! It isn’t just for scrapping. Get out that glue and paper and get ready to be inspired….or Pinspired! 🙂 (Images are linked)

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

From paper stain-glass crafts to the simplest of finger painting. Are these not some of the cutest winter crafts? If you are looking strictly  looking for some digital scrapbooking ideas, look no further than the gallery and store. If you are looking for some winter supplies, make sure you look back to our celebrating winter post!

Creative Style: White Space

GS_blog_CreativeStyle_Header

Good morning Scrappers! For those who celebrated Thanksgiving, have you recovered? Are you all ready for what comes next?!You know what…It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Next month for the inspiration side of the blog, we are going to be doing all things Christmas! Fonts, apps, supplies and more. I cannot wait!

Today though, we are going to be looking at the creative style of things. Scrapping white space layouts. I will go ahead and tell you that this is not my forte. I am all about messy, clustery, and filling up my pages. I appreciate what white space layouts are though & love to see them in the galleries. I am in awe of beautifully done white space layouts.

So, what is white space?

White space on scrapbook pages is not always white. It can be any color –it can even be patterned paper. The term white space refers to an area devoid of photos, embellishments, journaling, and title.

White space provides a resting point for the eye and breathing room for the viewer taking in your photos and journaling. White space has a shape that can be active or passive – Get it Scrapped 

 

Here are some beautiful examples of white space scrapping:

 

 

 

 

 


 

All these great layouts are linked to their counterpart in the gallery. Make sure you run over & leave them some love. As you can see, white space layouts are not layouts that are lacking!! They all have used their elements and paper to draw your eye to the photo. After all, this is about passing down memories. You can have patterned papers, fun paints, layered papers, and cute elements all on your page!

White space layouts stand out in the galleries against the big photos, layers and layers of papers, and lots of elements. Not to say one is better than the other! We are all different and we all scrap different. This is jut one of those ways. If you think that white space layouts is something you want to try, you know that GingerScraps has the supplies you need. Of course you can make a whitespace layout with any digital scrapbooking kit. Here are a few examples though of items in the store geared a little more to it.

Be Pinspired | Thanksgiving Crafts

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

It is getting that time of the year, here in the states. Let us not pretend that as a whole, we tend to skip over Thanksgiving. We are going to celebrate it for all that it is worth! Being thankful, getting together, taking photos, eating food, crafting, turkeys, history, and more!

Today we are going to take a look around pinterest and see what fun crafts we can find that we can put our digital scrapbooking twist on! We have such great designs and goodies at our fingertips. Sometimes all it takes to get a craft going is a little nudge in the right direction and some printed digital scrapbooking goodies. I did the looking around for you! (images liked to their pin).

 

You don't even have to get the glue out for this one! Take a look in all your latest kits. Most all of them come with buttons in them. Pull those buttons out, get to placing in photo shop (with some shadows!), save & print! Even your digital version would look great framed!

I am such a sucker for artwork done with sweet little hand & feet print. This is real simple! Find some of your favorite digital scrapbooking paper, print & glue. Think of what pretty feathers those papers will make!

Instead of pain, think little elements! Buttons & doodads that are usually always in your digital scrapbooking its. Pull those lovelies out & get to placing. I've seen this done digitally. It is stunning!

How easy would this be?!? A grid & your favorite elements. This would make a fun game to play on Thanksgiving!

This is so cute! I really like that they used all those pretty patterned papers. Just think of all of the digital ones you have tucked away in your stash! You could print & have your turkey looking snazzy for Thanksgiving!

You don’t even have to buy new kits to do this. Just use your favorite you have in your digital scrapbooking stash. That being said, GingerScraps has a great collection of all things digital scrapbooking! Just like I’ve mentioned in the past, there is a section dedicated just to Thanksgiving. You can find that HERE and here is a small glimpse into that catagory. Go take a look! Rather wait? I will be back later this month with our “Let’s Celebrate Thanksgiving” post. Where I take all the hard work out of looking for kits for you!

GingerBread Girls Inspiration| Dana aka: Scrappingirl

GS_blog_GingerBreadGirlsInspiration_Header

Can you guys believe that we are in November already?! I say it every year; but, this year has just flown by! Where did 2015 get to? While I am trying to wrap my mind around that, let us get some inspiration from one of GingerScraps’ creative team members. If you didn’t know, they have the fun name of being a “GingerBread Girl”. Today we are going to get some inspiration from Dana aka: scrapingirl


 

 

The first thing I notice with Dana’s lovely scrapbook pages is she really knows how to use the papers that come in a kit (be it solid or pattern) and use them! Sometimes you run across just one or two papers layered and that is it. Which is fine! Scrap what is you. Dana really uses papers to compliment her pages & photos.

I like that she scraps the everyday, like band aids and cuddles. She is never lacking in super cute photos and her clustering is spot on! Not to mention her titles (which I struggle with!) are great! I really like the “Piles of Handsome” title. Some great inspiration to be had here! Don’t just take my word for it. All these images are linked to their counterpart in the gallery. You can also check out her full gallery HERE! I hope you got some ideas and  inspiration from Dana aka: scrapingirl!

Good morning GingerScrap’s scrappers! If you remember, last month we celebrated the end of Summer. I don’t know about you, but here in the southern part of the States, it is starting to look a lot like Autumn! It is my favorite time of the year. From cooler weather, changing colors, holidays, and pumpkins. All these things make this season the best! We should of course scrap it, right? Never fear. GingerScraps has so much to offer when it comes to scrapping seasons. Autumn is no exception. There is even a whole category dedicated to it. Today, we are going to take a look at just a few of those items. Get ready for all things Autumn! (items linked to the store).
