Sneak Peeks September 30th

I know today is normally a challenge spotlight day but since it is the last day of the month and I am absolutely in love with the colors of tomorrows Buffet, I am going to give you a sneak peek! Next month is Halloween and these colors are perfect for it but our designers also thought up some awesome kits in all sorts of themes! I love how the CT mixes and matches all the kits perfectly!

Tomorrow all the awesome products will be released! I get sooooo excited for the beginning of the month! I love the buffet! Have a wonderful last day of September and enjoy the first week October!

September Spotlight Designer

feature-designer-500x107

Happy Fall everyone. It’s been a busy month here at GingerScraps with our 6th Birthday Celebration. Hopefully you got all the goodies from the Facebook Hop and took advantage of the great sales. The weather is finally cooling off in my corner of the states (North Carolina) and I’m looking forward to some gorgeous leaf colors soon.

This month, our feature designers are Clever Monkey Graphics and Wimpychompers. I got a chance to ask Tracey of Clever Monkey Graphics some of our get-to-know-you questions.

What is your design process?

Choose theme, choose colors which often involves lots of play, looks for inspiration, start designing.

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

Most of my work is done in Photoshop 4.0. Occasionally I open my Illustrator. I also have a Wacom Cintiq monitor that I can play on for direct to monitor doodling.

Describe your design workplace.

Usually it’s my big comfy brown leather chair with my feet up and a laptop where it belongs – on my lap. TV is often on with a cheesey movie playing that doesn’t matter if I look at it or not.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

Color, pattern

What is the last book you read?

Dinosaur Lake Book 2

Tea or coffee?

Both but I switched to decaf a year ago.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I’ve pretty much given that all up as I hate making the messes and my tastes have changed about what I want decorating my wall or house. Also having my daughter a little older now we’re not doing kid krafts.

How do you feed your sweet tooth (photo if you got it)?

I really shouldn’t feed it! But I do love Canadian chocolate and also crystallized ginger. Dark chocolate covered almonds give me a great sneaky caffeine boost since I stopped drinking caffeine.

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed (that is currently in store) and why is it your favorite?

I really don’t know – I always go back to thinking I love the Under the Boardwalk pair of kits. I really enjoyed using my Tropical Aloha and At the Zoo kits recently too. Can’t really say why I love some more than others. I just click with some more than others.

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

I find it to be a great and friendly community of people.

What is the most used App on your phone?

I’m old school – I still don’t have a smart phone.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Bad sci fi!

How long have you been designing?

Eight years.

Salty or sweet?

One followed by the other!

If you could travel to any TIME in the past, present or future where would you go and why?

I’d like to go back a few years to have some great sit down conversations with my Nana who has since passed on.

Thanks Tracey!! Make sure you check out her Facebook page, her Blog, and her store at GingerScraps.

Keep an eye out for some new questions and check the Gingerscraps Facebook page for ways that you can be involved.

But for now, tell us in the comments, what is your favorite Clever Monkey Graphics or Wimpychomper kit?

Fresh Baked: September 26, 2014

Whoo! Did you have a blast with the birthday party? We hope you got plenty of goodies, but not too much. The designers have created some wonderful kits, and there’s definitely a little something for everyone!

Before we get to the goodies, you know that I have to show off a few layout using this month’s buffet and the newest monthly mix, Nostalgic Summer.


Created by CindyB. I love the use of the hashtag for the title. I love the little flowers in the corners.


Created by becky_a. I love the layers, and the clusters are beautiful.
