Share your favorite recipe with us.
Cinnamon Roll Bites. Open a 12-oz can of biscuits; cut each into fourths. Toss to coat pieces in a mixture of 1/4 C brown sugar + 1T cinnamon. Spread in baking dish. Pour on 3T melted butter. Bake 20-25 min. Once done cover with cream cheese frosting and enjoy! My oldest is allergic to red dye as well as some preservatives so we make our own version of cinnamon buns/bites.

Share The Luck of the Irish With Gingerscraps!

Dia dhaoibh! According to Google, that’s “Hello” in Gaelic! Best I can do is “Hello” in an Irish accent, a bad one! St. Patrick’s Day! Everyone becomes Irish for a day! Enjoy a pint, pinch someone not wearing green (where does that come from anyway?), and enjoy some new gorgeous kits from the designers! They’re gearing up for spring, but don’t worry, there are some great “green” kits in there as well! Slán go fóill!

Before I show you the new goodies, here are a few layouts I picked out of the gallery using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix,called “A Bit of Luck”!

Welcome to March scrappers! I really cannot believe that we are already into the 3rd month of the year. I guess I should just get used to all these years flying by. Since we are into March, let’s talk about scrapping for St. Patrick’s Day!

I am doing all the hard work for you. (Well, I like shopping around; so it isn’t hard work for me!) Here are some great items from the GingerScrap’s store to get your St. Patrick’s Day photos & fun scrapped. This is just a glimpse as to what is in the store. If these are not what you are looking for, check out the section dedicated to this holiday.

Before I get started with showing you some great St. Patrick’s Day goodies, I thought I would remind you of this month’s Mix. It is perfect for this holiday!

Monthly Mix: A Bit Of Luck: A collaboration from our GingerScraps designers.

Everyone has a bit of luck with this kit! From top hats for the leprechaun in your life, to the colors of Scouts and grass, and the hints of spring.

This collab includes:

  • 1 Full Alphas
  • 30 Papers
  • 55 Elements
  • 2 Bonus Templates- PAGE, PNG, PSD, and TIF File Formats

 

Now, Here is those St. Patrick Day goodies I was talking about. All images are link to their counterpart in the store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Great, right? Like I said, these are just a glimpse as to what GingerScraps has in store to scrap your St. Patrick’s Day memories and fun. It is still early as well. There is a little less than 2 weeks until the holiday. Make sure you keep a look out on the Fresh Baked goodies to see what else might show up.

It’s March and I still want to type February! I finally got the hang of 2016 though! That’s an improvement! Time needs to just stand still for a second to let us catch our breaths! The designers aren’t letting the speed of the flying days keep them from getting some amazing kits and templates done! They’re even teaming up to create some seriously beautiful kits! You’re going to love them! I promise!

Before I show you the new goodies, here are a few layouts I picked out of the gallery using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix,called “A Bit of Luck”!
