Fresh Baked: June 20, 2014

Good morning! How has your week been going? Can you believe that tomorrow is the first day of SUMMER? It’s crazy how fast 2014 is just flying by! Don’t let it fly by though, without picking up some of the new releases! Some designers are prepping for the 4th, if you live in the States, so that’s perfect! If you’re into rock climbing, there’s an AMAZING kit out there now for you! So many goodies! Make sure you check them out!

Before I show you the new goodies (and the new designer), I’ve chosen a few layouts to show off, using June 2014 {Designer’s Choice} buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix, “That’s My Guy”.


Created by CindyB. I love the small cluster in the corner with the cluster and the bigger cluster leading to the picture!


Created by MamaCake. There are so many pictures, but it doesn’t look cluttered! I love that! The slip-in of the little summer/beach-related elements just make the layout pop!


Created by Deanna. I love the wave joining into the cluster!

Before I start with the beautiful kits and products that the designers have created for you, I just have to share this awesome news with you, a new Welcome Wagon kit has been released! If you do not know about our Welcome Wagon area, you should go check it out right away! Once you register in the forum, you will have access to the Welcome Wagon area. The designers create wonderful goodies and give them to you for FREE! The Welcome Wagon has been up and running, for over a year, so our designers are changing their goodies! New goodies, Free goodies!

Today, you’re being given a new lovely gift by Girl Boy Girl Designs!

Fresh Baked: June 01, 2014

WOWZERS! Good morning and welcome to June! Where did May go? Are you excited for the first day of summer? Or going swimming? Maybe heading to the beach!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! This month, the colors are so soft, so they fit with the beach, spring, summer, boys and girls. They all mix and match so well together, as well! SO MANY different themes! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

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

The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

Fresh Baked: May 30, 2014

Good morning! How has your week been going? Are you excited for a new month to begin? It’ll be starting in a few days! This week’s releases are SO wonderful that they’ll make the wait a little easier. This week, we also have a new designer joining us! I’m SO EXCITED!

Before I show you the new goodies (and the new designer), I’ve chosen a few layouts to show off, using May 2014 {Designer’s Choice} buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix, “True Colors”.


Created by emscraps. I love the circle frames! The paper layers are wonderful as well.


Created by justpennys. I love the framing of the picture and the arrows pointing to the coal! Too cute!


Created by emscraps. The clusters are so wonderful! The wavy pieces draw your eyes to the picture.

So, I did hint that we had a new designer joining the team, didn’t I?

Jenn of Girl Boy Girl Designs is joining the team here at Gingerscraps!

As we do, we ask our newest designer to tell us a little about herself and this is what she had to share:

My name is Jen Balding – designer behind Girl Boy Girl designs. I am married to my high school sweet heart (20 years next month!) and I have 3 children, girl – boy – girl … which is where my design name came from (so creative!) I have been designing longer than I can remember (literally…they say the memory is the first thing to go *LOL) and I have a special passion/obsession for hybrid crafting. I am so happy to be joining the Ginger Scraps team, and can’t wait to get to know everyone better!

Make sure you check out her store and see what she has in there for you!

Fresh Baked: May 23, 2014

Good morning! How has your week been going? According to Sonic, yesterday was National Last Day of School or something like that. Monday is the official start of summer in the States with Memorial Day and the designers are ready for summer! How about you?

Before I show you the new goodies, I’ve chosen a few layouts to show off, using May 2014 {Designer’s Choice} buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix, “True Colors”.


Created by scrapjrlgcp. The first thing that drew me was the beautiful smile. The blend/mask is wonderful. I love how the cluster mixes so well with the flower in her hair.


Created by Joyousgirl80. I love the older-style pictures. Plays wonderfully with the colors of the kit.


Created by StephanieH. I love the stitching around the paper layers.

May Feature Designers: LittleRadTrio and B2N2 Scraps

feature-designer-500x107

I hope everyone is enjoying May. We’re in the midst of NASCAR Race Weeks here in Charlotte and getting ready for my son’s high school graduation. I thought I would drop in for a post and highlight our feature designers for May. Jennifer of Little Rad Trio and Becky of B2N2 Scraps have teamed up to be in our spotlight this month.

Let’s see what Jennifer has to say.

What is your design process?

I generally start with elements. If it’s a theme kit, I start creating the “themed” elements first. There are also times where I start with the generic kits items (i.e. ribbons, strings, etc) and it grows from there. Papers generally come next and alpha is almost always last.

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

I use CS6. I have illustrator, but I have never used it yet. I keep thinking “one of these days” I’ll go through the class tutorials I purchased, but “that day” hasn’t come yet. I also have a scanner and my DSLR camera too.

Describe your design workplace.

My workplace was originally my home computer with 2 monitors. But then we suffered severe water damage last June and I had to pack it all up. At that point, I reverted to working primarily from my laptop which is still the case. When I did finally get my home computer hooked back up, I got a virus on it and I haven’t “fixed” it yet. There are times I also design from my work computer that has 2 monitors too. But I would say about 75% of all my designing comes from my Windows 7 laptop while either sitting on my couch with a TV tray or standing at our breakfast bar. LOL!

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

Color is a huge inspiration to me. When the color palette speaks to me I can whip together a kit I just love in a matter of a couple of days. But when the color palette is a struggle, then inspiration speaks slowly.

What is the last book you read?

The last 2 books I read were What Kills Me and I Am Forever by Wynne Channing. It happened upon them in Amazon. The first books “What Kills Me” was a free book and it was such a fun easy read that I was hooked and had to buy the I Am Forever to finish up the series. I’m currently reading Divergent – but it’s been a slow process for me.

Tea or coffee?

Neither! Sorry, I just don’t get the coffee addiction that people like my husband have.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

Not in a long time. I have cross stitched and embroidered, but since I discovered digital scrapbooking they have definitely taken a seat on the back burner.

How do you feed your sweet tooth?

Oh, that’s a tough one. It varies so much. I would have to say donuts or pastries like brownies or such. Of course I love milk chocolate, but I’m not a huge candy fan.

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed and why is it your favorite?

I would have to say it’s probably my “In the Kitchen” collection. I love how all the themed elements turned out and I simply adore the color palette. I love black and red together and added the goldish brown was just the perfect touch.

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

Ginger! I just love her to pieces! She is so warm, caring, friendly and just plain awesome! Her creativity with the survivor games amazes me and I love that she is so organized. It’s makes my designing process that much easier! Thanks for all you do Ginger!!

What is the most used App on your phone?

Farm Heros Saga. Yep, I’m addicted to that silly little game!

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Of course! Don’t we all! My guilty pleasure is a good refreshing cosmo! I love my cosmopolitans, but only if they are made with cointreau.

How long have you been designing?

I hit my official one year anniversary at the end of April this year. I have been having a blast and love the creative aspect of it.

Salty or sweet?

Both! I love trail mix that has peanuts, raisins and M&Ms in them!

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

I would go back to the mid 70s so I could get to know my materal grandmother. She passed away when I was young and would love to have known her from my adult perspective. She was my mother’s best friend and my mom is my best friend. So I would love to have been able to hang out with them both (as a grown woman, rather than a young child).

Any special message to our members?

Yep – Happy Scrappin!!!

Make sure to check out the Little Rad Trio Facebook page and her blog. Also check out her kits in the Store.

And now, let’s chat with Becky.

What is your design process?

I start with one of two ways: one being with a color palette that grabs me or two, I start with a theme and then find a color palette that matches the theme. I always create my papers first and then move to my elements. The alpha always comes last.

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

I use Photoshop Elements 11.

Describe your design workplace.

My workplace is wherever my computer is. Sometimes I design at the kitchen table, other times I design on the couch while watching TV.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

I am inspired by my kids a lot of times. I find inspiration in the color palettes of some of their clothing or in an activity that they are doing. I also am motivated by striking color palettes that make me envision something in my head. I try not to force a color palette on myself because then I know I my kit won’t be as inspired. I am also inspired by ideas from customers. I like creating kits that have unique themes.

What is the last book you read?

I just finished a memoir called Until I Say Goodbye by Susan Spencer-Wendel. I read a lot and cohost the GingerScraps’ book club. I also have a book blog with my sister called “My Sister’s Bookkeeper.”

Tea or coffee?

Neither but I will drink tea on occasion

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I used to be an avid stamper and cardmaker but since I discovered digital scrapbooking and the lack of mess, I don’t do much paper crafting anymore. I also crochet scarves on occasion. I like to make Christmas ornaments and other holiday crafts.

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

I love chocolate! Anything chocolate is good (well not anything-I don’t like most fruit flavors with chocolate except for strawberries and chocolate) but it is especially good with caramel, peanut butter or mint!

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed and why is it your favorite?

This is tough! I love so many of my kits! I think right now my favorite kit is Everyday Love. I love the color combination and I love the surprise of newsprint in it. I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest for this kit and I love how the word art turned out in the kit.

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

I really love the sense of community.

What is the most used App on your phone?

I don’t have a smart phone. I know I’m behind the times but data packages are so expensive! I just got texting about 6 months ago! My most used app on my ipad is probably Facebook or email.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

I’m a hopeless romantic so I love cheesy young romantic movies like The Prince & Me. There is a young adult dystopian fiction series-the first one is called The Selection- and it is like the show The Bachelor but set in a dystopian world. I could not get enough of that guilty pleasure book!

How long have you been designing?

I think it’ll be 4 years this summer. Wow, I didn’t realize it had been that long!

Salty or sweet?

Sweet

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

I would love to go back to Victorian English but only if I was well off! I love the clothes (although I don’t doubt that I would be tired of them quite quickly) and I would love to go to balls and parties and be courted.

Any special message to our members?

I’d like to thank you all for supported me with my designing. If you have kit requests, please feel free to contact me!

Keep up with Becky on her Facebook page and her blog. And don’t forget to check her out in the store.
