Happy Valentine’s Weekend From Gingerscraps!

Happy Friday! Sunday is Valentine’s Day and it’s a great time to spend some time with the ones you love. Also, to eat lots of chocolate. But mostly to get lots of pictures, so you can scrap with the amazing products the designers are releasing this week.

And eat more chocolate 😉

I’m so loving the layouts using the new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix, “A Cherry on Top”!! It’s so hard each week choosing just the ones I do! Make sure you share yours, and get a chance for a show-off in the newsletter!

Created by Bekfek. I just love the patterned paper! It really breaks up the white space beautifully!

February Feature Designer – Seatrout Scraps

It’s time for our February Feature Designer interview. This month, the lovely and awesome Rachel of Seatout Scraps has volunteered to answer our questions. Some serious, some crazy. Let’s see what Rachel has to say.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

I started paper scrapping many years ago and made the switch to digital in about 2010. I saw layouts in galleries online and thought … hey, I want a go at that !!

What made you decide to design?

I was on the Creative Team for quite a lot of designers and people kept asking me whose templates I used. When they found out I was making my own, they asked me if I would sell them and it started from there.

What do you use to create your designs (program, additional tools, etc.)?

Photoshop Creative Cloud and Adobe Illustrator

Describe your design workplace.

One corner of the sofa with a small dog jammed in next to me.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

The creative outlet … and being able to work for myself.

What is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?

My favorite kit is always the last one I worked on.

What do you do when you are feeling very sad or depressed?

I don’t really do sad or depressed. I am a glass half full kind of a gal.

Which is the best vacation you’ve ever had in your life?

We traveled on a roadtrip through the Rockies from Denver, up through Wyoming, stopping at Mount Rushmore and on through to Yellowstone. Then back through Idaho and Nevada to my stepdaughters in California. A 2 week trip that I will never forget.

Do you believe in ghosts?

No

Who is your celebrity crush?

Timothy Olyphant

What do you order when you go to Starbucks?

The nearest Starbucks is about 40 miles away .. I live in the middle of nowhere.

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

No cookies … not a sweet lover … give me cheese instead.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

Maybe 13 or 14.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Optimist

Would you change your name if you could? If so, what would you change it to?

No

What is your favorite pizza topping?

Hawaiian

What do you do to wake up in the morning?

I am always awake by 4.30am – 5am. Love mornings.

What is a small luxury that you treat yourself to?

A walk on the beach. I treat myself to that most days.

What did you want to be when you were small?

I seem to remember that I changed my mind every few days.

Which would you rather do: wash dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house?

None of the above. I have an amazing husband that is in charge of the house.

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

See above LOL.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Travel more.

What’s the most interesting thing you can see out of your office or kitchen window?

I look out onto our garden.

Share your favorite recipe with us.

Not a foodie at all. I rarely cook and left to my own devices, I eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner because it takes no thought !!

Thanks Rachel!!

Fresh Baked: February 05, 2016

First week of February gone! The Groundhog did not see his shadow. Spring is coming early. At least that’s the rumor. The designers might have taken it to heart, or they’re just really ready to get to work, because they have several goodies for you today! So many delicious things! There are templates, grab bags, collabs, including a very special collab!

I’m so loving the layouts using the new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix, “A Cherry on Top”!! It’s so hard each week choosing just the ones I do! Make sure you share yours, and get a chance for a show-off in the newsletter!

Created by Lmsandt. I just love the picture and the colors from it are a perfect match for the kit choice!

As a lover of all things scrapbook-clustery (that is totally a real term. lol), I love all her clustery goodness! Her layouts stand out in the gallery and I hope you found some inspiration to get those layouts coming along. Happy Scrapping!

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

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs, each unique but working so well with the other designers’ creations
