Good Monday morning everyone! Can you believe how fast this year is going and how early Easter is this year? I started seeing signs around my town for Easter egg hunts for this weekend. That blew my mind that it is already here. So, with that in mind, I am here to show you some great Easter themed items from the shop.

Did you know that you can shop by “holiday” at GingerScraps?! I searched under the Easter option and here are some goodies I found.

Handwritten Fonts

Good morning scrappers. Team member La’Shawn here to talk about fonts. I think it comes with the scrappy territory…font addiction. I don’t think I’ve met a scrapper who didn’t have more fonts than they could ever use. That being said, if you are anything like me, you never stop to think about adding another font to your collection. I went searching around and found 6 handwritten fonts to share with you. Handwritten fonts are my favorite! One of these days I am going to actually get my handwriting done for my own pages. So, here you go.

handwritten fonts

My favorites are always the ones with the little additions to them. Little hearts and smiles. All these fonts are free. I will link them up below for you. I hope you like them. If you make a page with them, come back and link us up in the comments!

Here are the links:

GingerBread Girl Inspiration | CindyB

GS_blog_GingerBreadGirlsInspiration_Header

 

Happy Scrappy Saturday everyone!! I am stopping by this morning to help get those creative juices flowing for you. Nothing beats Saturday scrapping, right?! This morning I am bringing you a look into one of the GingerBread Girl’s gallery. GingerScraps has a talented group of ladies taking those lovely designs and turning them into beautiful digital scrapbooking layouts. Today we are going to showcase CindyB’s gallery.

Cindy

Let’s get started. I found so much inspiration looking through Cindy’s gallery. As a scrapper who cannot scrap a page with clusters, I first noticed her great clustering! Then my eyes were drawn to her beautiful use of paper. She doesn’t shy away from the patterns and knows just how to use them. Every page has a great photo and she really rocks the blended photo. Here are 5 examples that grabbed my attention.

Great inspiration, right? Make sure to look around the gallery yourself if you need a little bit of help getting that mojo going. Not only are there great creative team member’s layouts, your fellow scrappers are rocking the scrappy goodness too! Don’t forget to upload your layouts in the gallery as well.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Fresh Baked: March 20, 2015

This week, the designers are all about new starts. New starts for the month, new starts for the family, all of that good stuff! They’re gearing up, I think, for an amazing April, which starts so super soon! But don’t worry, they’re not forgetting the rest of March! Make sure you check out what they’ve got for you this week!

Before I show off the new creations, here are some wonderful layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “The Beauty of Spring”!


Created by MarcelaRelvas. I love the cluster work!


Created by msbrad. I love the framing of the picture meshed with a blending.
