Wow! Who knew there was so many great Thanksgiving goodies in the store. There are many more where those came from. I tried to stick strictly with Thanksgiving themes. That being said, there are hundreds more kits, alphas, elements, and templates in the store that you can use to scrap your Thanksgiving photos. Don’t let a theme or color scheme hold you back! The images above are linked to their store counterpart. Make sure you enjoy your Thanksgiving, take lots of photos, and make sure to scrap them! Thank you for joining us for Let’s Celebrate Thanksgiving! For all of your celebrating next week; Happy Thanksgiving!

Be Pinspired | Thanksgiving Crafts

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

It is getting that time of the year, here in the states. Let us not pretend that as a whole, we tend to skip over Thanksgiving. We are going to celebrate it for all that it is worth! Being thankful, getting together, taking photos, eating food, crafting, turkeys, history, and more!

Today we are going to take a look around pinterest and see what fun crafts we can find that we can put our digital scrapbooking twist on! We have such great designs and goodies at our fingertips. Sometimes all it takes to get a craft going is a little nudge in the right direction and some printed digital scrapbooking goodies. I did the looking around for you! (images liked to their pin).

 

You don't even have to get the glue out for this one! Take a look in all your latest kits. Most all of them come with buttons in them. Pull those buttons out, get to placing in photo shop (with some shadows!), save & print! Even your digital version would look great framed!

I am such a sucker for artwork done with sweet little hand & feet print. This is real simple! Find some of your favorite digital scrapbooking paper, print & glue. Think of what pretty feathers those papers will make!

Instead of pain, think little elements! Buttons & doodads that are usually always in your digital scrapbooking its. Pull those lovelies out & get to placing. I've seen this done digitally. It is stunning!

How easy would this be?!? A grid & your favorite elements. This would make a fun game to play on Thanksgiving!

This is so cute! I really like that they used all those pretty patterned papers. Just think of all of the digital ones you have tucked away in your stash! You could print & have your turkey looking snazzy for Thanksgiving!

You don’t even have to buy new kits to do this. Just use your favorite you have in your digital scrapbooking stash. That being said, GingerScraps has a great collection of all things digital scrapbooking! Just like I’ve mentioned in the past, there is a section dedicated just to Thanksgiving. You can find that HERE and here is a small glimpse into that catagory. Go take a look! Rather wait? I will be back later this month with our “Let’s Celebrate Thanksgiving” post. Where I take all the hard work out of looking for kits for you!

 

 

 

There you go. Just a small look at what GingerScraps has to offer. I hope you found some inspiration from Be Pinspired | Thanksgiving Crafts! If you have gotten your digital scrapbooking & crafting on, link us up! We love to see what you are making with GingerScraps supplies! Happy crafting!
