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!

 

 

 

There you go. Just a small look at what GingerScraps has to offer. I hope you found some inspiration from Be Pinspired | Thanksgiving Crafts! If you have gotten your digital scrapbooking & crafting on, link us up! We love to see what you are making with GingerScraps supplies! Happy crafting!

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

Let’s Celebrate | Autumn (fall)

GS_blog_LetsCelebrate_Header

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).

Whenever I am lacking in mojo or ideas, I go looking around the galleries. The GingerBread Girls is a great place to do that! What are GingerBread Girls, you ask? Today we are going to take a look at one of those talented ladies. Get some inspiration from the GingerBread Girls. Today’s inspiration comes from Bren (Brenian4ever).

Be Pinspired | Scrapping with Shapes

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

Good morning scrappers! Who else is glad that it is Saturday? Saturday can usually find me watching football, doing light cleaning, scrapping, and looking around on Pinterest. (I am a lot of fun guys! lol) Today finds me doing all that. I got to thinking about scrapping with shapes. I am usually a square/rectangle photo kind of scrapper. Paper layering too. I tend to shy away from different shapes. I am not sure why. That is just how I scrap. So, I got to looking around on pinterest and found some fun layouts with different shapes. I am here right now to show you those & hope you find some inspiration as I did. (all images linked to their pin).

Great use of circles! So many photos & a great way to get them all on your page. Very little (to no) elements used. Really brings one’s focus to the fun photos.

 

I really wish I had taken more preggers photos to scrap. This would, hands down, be one of the pages I scrapped. I love the ultra sound photo in the tummy.

 

love love love this idea!! Very little elements and great focus on the photos. I really like the string/stitching to pull it all together. Great idea & fun shaped layout.

 

No elements and little to no paper! This layout doesn’t need it. These photos are all the focus and great layout to do that!

 


 

These are just a few of the ideas I found on pinterest. I absolutely am going to take that bottom and and scraplift it. Did any of them stick out to you? Got another fun shaped layout to share? Let us share ideas and inspiration! Link us up!

Her layouts are scrapped in a way that the focus is on her great photos. Most all her layouts have journaling on them. Great composition, perfect element choices and placement, and just the right papers really make Trina’s layout standout and show off the memories. Here are just a few of those layouts.

LET’S CELEBRATE | Summer!

GS_blog_LetsCelebrate_Header

Happy Saturday everyone! Here in the South (US) it is heating up. We have seen near 90 degree (F) days already. Whew. I cannot imagine how hot it is going to be this summer. I find that during the summer, I take more photos & that we do more that finds its way on my layouts. Did you know there was a section in the shop just for all things summer? Ginger and the designers take the guess work out of it for you. I am going to make it even easier. Here are just a smidgen of what the ladies have for all things summer. Hold on to your cute summer hats (images are linked to the store)…


I am telling you, this is just a small look at what is Summer at GingerScraps. You don’t have to limit yourself to themed kits either. Get those summer photos out & let’s get scrapping. Here are some great examples, found in the gallery, that do just that! (as always, images are linked)

It is that time again scrappers. Time to take a bit of inspiration from one of our very own GingerBread Girls. GringerScraps has a very talented group of ladies scrapping for us. They take all those beautiful designs our designers give us and showcase them like a boss. Today we are going to take a look at one of those ladies. Emelyn. Otherwise known as emscraps.

Emelyn

You can see her gallery HERE & see what inspires you!

The first thing I noticed when I was looking around her gallery were her photos. Everyone looks like they are having so much fun. So much doing, sight seeing, & smiles. I picked a few of my favorite out to bring you today. If you are looking for inspiration, head on over to her gallery and see what talks to you. (images are linked)

Great, right?! My favorite is the one just above. The fun cut out and the photo. Everyone looks like they are having so much fun in Em’s layouts. She takes her great photos and scraps them beautifully! What are your favorite layouts brought to you by Em?
