Fresh Baked: October 11, 2013

Hello, and good morning lovely Gingerscrappers! It’s time for that time of the week! Fresh baked goodies! This week, the designers are really into templates. There are so many wonderful templates being offered this week

GingerScraps has a  Facebook Group. This is an Open group anyone can join to share your GingerScraps Layouts, inspirational stories, scrapping funnies, questions, ISOs or anything else you’d like to share! This group gives you the chance to catch things you may have missed about GingerScraps happenings, such as sale announcements, new freebies, chats, new releases and more.

Remember this is a GingerScraps group, so please no other store product promotions.

Before I show off the amazing designs, it’s time to showcase a few great layouts, using the new Designer’s Choice buffet and All Treats, Not Tricks, the new monthly mix.

Created by melissavt. I love the paper layers and the use of the splatters, but the picture is what made me look! Awesome costume!

Created by cfalbro. I love the way the title alpha isn’t completely straight. The puppy is too cute as well.

Created by dodgeladee. The colors of the buffet just work so well with the picture. The small clusters really draw the attention to the picture and the journaling.

Remember, when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great grab bag! This month’s was created by Created by Jill Designs, Chere Kaye Designs, Kathy Winters Designs, Craft-tastrophic Designs, and Blue Heart Scraps.

Weekly Wrap-Up: Sales, CT Calls, Book Club OH MY!

Good morning!

I’ve got lots of little tidbits to share with you!

First, today is the LAST day to get Pixelily’s shop at 50% OFF! In honor of her grand opening here at GingerScraps her entire shop is on sale!

She’s definitely become a fast favorite of mine, and I’ve certainly taken advantage of her Grand Opening Sale! ;) If there is anything you’ve had your eye on, today is the last day to grab it at half off!!


In case you missed last week’s wrap-up, there are two CT calls happening right now, one for Z Pink Boudoir Designs and one for JenC Designs!

I’m happy to see that we’ve had a few new members join our forum! It’s always exciting “seeing” new faces, meeting new friends! I love watching our community grow and grow. :)  One of the things I love most about the DigiScrapVerse is just how..vast it is! People from ALL over the world come together to share themselves through digital scrapbooking. Truly awesomeness.

Let’s see, what other little exciting tidbits do I have to share with you?

How about another sale? And with Father’s Day just a week away this is doubly awesome!

Connie Prince’s Dear Dad kit is on sale for over 50% OFF right now! I have had my eye on this kit for quite some time, and took this opportunity to snag ALL the coordinating packs to it as well!

In addition, there are some great wordart pieces by Kathy Winters Designs available in our store as well!

Before I wrap up the wrap-up ;) I’ve got to stick in just a couple more quick little bits!

One, don’t forget about GingerScraps Book Club! This month we’re reading Nicholas Sparks’ The Lucky One. I’ve, personally, never read a Nicholas Sparks novel, but am quite looking forward to it! Also, make sure you go vote for next month’s book in the Pick Our Book Poll! There are some terrific books on the poll for July, don’t forget to vote for the one YOU want to read! :)  And now that I got totally excited about our book club, I forgot the other thing I wanted to say!  …and with a little prodding of my crazy mind I totally remembered!  The second little bit I wanted to leave you with was our Ask the Designer upcoming post! We need YOU, our gorgeous community to come up with questions to ask the designers! Have a burning question you’re just dying to know? Check out the forum thread where you can pose it to all three of June’s featured designers or just one specifically. :)

Okay, now it’s time for me to refill my empty coffee cup and get some good scrap time in today!  The heat is forcing me inside- to which I don’t mind one bit ;) Time to get scrappy with it! Bwahaha! :)

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, wherever you are spending it!

Wow!  Seems like this month is just flying by!  I got lots of scrapping done this weekend – even played with PSE all day yesterday and finished up my first layout in it!  I used a template from Kathy Winters – she’s hosting the template challenge in the forum.  All I can say is wow!!!  I loved being able to ‘clip’ things.  I never figured that out in Gimp – but it is an awesome capability!!!  Anyhow… enough about my weekend!  I hope you had a great one too!  :)

Here’s a reminder that Scrappy Cocoa has a call going on right now in case you haven’t seen it around!  :)

And don’t forget we are having a template chat & scrap on Thursday 4/21 at 9pm EST – hope to see you there!  Now here’s today’s piece:

Have a great day!!!

Fresh Baked! 3/11

Hi…no that doesn’t sound right. Happy, that is over-used.  Gosh, I can’t figure out how to start this newsletter anymore.  Maybe I’ll just jump right in and tell you what my plans are this weekend.  There is a reason for it so you’ll just have to suffer through my long boring plans…hehe.  Actually we have exciting plans.  We are going to be painting the boys’ bedroom.  My oldest wanted the room to be red.  Yeah, his favorite color.  My middle son wanted green.  They all finally agreed on blue.  That is all well and good but do you know how many different shades of blue there are?  Too many.  Finally we agreed, something called Summer Splash.

You are probably wondering where all of this is going.  Well, painting is going on because we are feeling the spring cleaning itch.  The designers here at GingerScraps are feeing the same way.  They have decided to clean out their stores to make room for some great new items  What does that mean for you?  It means a great sale! Oh that’s right SALE!  We are talking at least 50% OFF!  Tons will be more then that!!

Speaking of spring cleaning, Creations by Julie has decided it is time to make her team bigger!!  Now is your chance to join!  Hurry while you can!


Now it is time to show you our new releases!  Make sure you are sitting.  There are just TONS of new products for you!!!  Remember if you spend $10 in the store, you get this incredible grab bag by Wyld Web Designs.

First up will be our guest – the one and only Connie Prince!!

She created Glorious with anticipation that spring will be here again (soon I hope) and that when it arrives it will be glorious! Connie hopes that it helps you capture a bit of the spring hope as well.




Short on time or inspiration? These templates can help!
