Fresh Baked: April 10, 2015

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


Created by CindyB. I love the angle of the picture, and the use of the mask on it!


Created by Colleen. I love how PERFECTLY the kit matches the pictures. Also, I love that she scraps older pictures!


Created by MamaCake. I love the layers and the cluster work is just wonderful!

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:
