Let’s Celebrate | St. Patrick’s Day

GS_blog_LetsCelebrate_Header

Good Monday morning scrappers! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. With that comes scrapping fun holiday photos. Let us take a look at what GingerScraps has in store to get those holiday layouts scrapped. You can break down the store by holidays. *Shop by: HOLIDAY. I chose the St. Patrick’s Day section and look at these goodies I found!

So, make sure you are wearing green, don’t get pinched, and take some fun photos. These are just a handful of selections you can choose from to scrap those holiday pages. I saw a few St. Patrick’s Day goodies in the Bake Sale too! Happy Scrapping!!

March Bake Sale

Happy Bake Sale Day everyone. Today begins the March Bake Sale in the GingerScraps store. Many of our designers have placed a few full kits on sale for $1.00 each. Yes, a FULL kit for $1.00. How awesome is that? It’s one of my favorite times of the month. Let’s see what they are offering this month.

Oh my goodness – a lot of lovely goodies to choose from. This sale is good through the 20th, so don’t miss out. And remember, if you spend $10 (and look how much you can get for that), you will get the March Free with Purchase Collaboration – Rare Diamonds.

Have a great week. Off to shop. :)

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

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!

GingerBread Girls Inspiration

GS_blog_GingerBreadGirlsInspiration_Header

Good Monday morning scrappers!! Let us not dwell on the fact that it is Moday….sigh. Let us get scrap happy!! This Monday morning we are going to highlight a GingerBread girl. For those who are not familiar with the titles around GingerScraps, a GingerBread Girl is a creative team member. Those ladies who work hard to bring all those kits you love to action. Today, we are going to pull a bit of inspiration from

Jennifer

Check out her full gallery HERE.

I was stalking the galleries and Jennifer’s jumped out to me. Such great use of patterned papers, banners, and lovely photos. Don’t take my word for it though.

Tubing2012 BoysCaution LetItGoWeb LoveYouWeb MomentIntheCornWeb

 

I told you that her gallery has some amazing inspiration! These are just a drop in the water. Go check out her GALLERY and look around. If you find yourself scraplifting and finding something that speaks to you in inspiration, let us know! Come back and link up your layout. We would love to see it. Happy Scrapping!

March Featured Designer – SandyPie Creations

GS_blog_FeatureDesigner_Header

Welcome to March and meteorological Spring (I’m a weather geek). I keep hoping that saying it’s Spring will convince the weather that it really is. So far, I don’t think it’s working.

SandyPie Creations is our featured designer for March. She answered some of our standard questions in a previous post (last June- see it here) so we came up with some different (and fun) questions for her.

What is your favorite “go-to” color palette?

Anything with a teal-y/aqua blue in it!

What is your favorite treat to have close while designing?

Honey roasted cashews or white chocolate covered pretzels (Flips)

Do you have job outside of designing?

No, I love this so much!

What is the current ringtone on your phone?

Can’t Hold Us Back by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton (the Ray Dalton part is the actual ring tone).

If you were deserted on an island (with all water/food provided), what three things would you want to have with you?

My iPad, a solar charger and a good blanket. (I hope there’s wifi.)

If you could spend the day with anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why?

Ooooh, that’s a tough one…

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Somewhere tropical, preferably without needing a passport.

What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?

(Shake Shake Shake) Your Bootie by KC & The Sunshine Band
She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5
My Love by Celine Dion

What would you sing at Karaoke night?

I think I’m pretty terrible at singing so I would definitely not get up.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Contents under pressure.

What is one thing you will never do again?

I usually would answer this one “get divorced” and give my husband a warning glare. ;)

What’s your favorite movie?

The Princess Bride

Do you love or hate roller coasters?

I used to love them till I had a couple kids, now my body just doesn’t like them, especially anything upside down.

Do you believe there is intelligent life in outer space?

Yes.

What was the last thing you ate?

I shared a huge bucket of popcorn with my boys at the movies last night.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Brown or gray. I really love those colors.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Lack of manners or consideration for others.

Pirates or Ninjas?

Ninjas

Country or City?

Country, as long as there is a great internet connection

Morning or Night?

I’m a mid morning early afternoon kind of girl.

Indoors or Outdoors?

I’m definitely an indoor kid!

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Vanilla

Cats or Dogs?

I have both, but I’ve become more of a cat person. I appreciate their independence but probably more so because I’ve lost three dogs in the past 10 years, two pretty traumatically. (Sudden onset of problems and death followed by expensive vet bills for two. The third was old age, that one hurts the worst.) So I’m apprehensive to go through that again with dogs.

Those were some great answers! Thanks for playing along.

Sandy has her store at 40% off for the month of March and she’s behind the colorful Daily Download Kit. Make sure to check out her store, her Facebook page and her blog.

I asked on the GingerScraps Facebook pages what your favorite SandyPie Creations kit was and to share a layout with that kit.
