Challenge Spotlight October 7th 2014

Happy Tuesday! Have you seen all the new challenges posted for this month? Have you started your tracking thread for October yet? Check out this month’s challenge reward:

Getting the reward is simple. Just scrap 10 challenge layouts by the end of the month and keep track of them. Then you will receive this awesome kit! The kits change every month so make sure you participate in the challenges to grab the free kits!

This week’s spotlight is on a challenge I like to call bonus challenges since you get a great freebie to use for it. Melissa of Lissykay Designs hosted the Mini Kit Challenge and made a great free mini to use for it.

So all you have to do for this challenge is use this awesome mini in a layout and post it to the thread. Check out some of the LOs that have been posted by our members so far!

Fresh Baked: October 03, 2014

Good morning! The weather turned a little chilly, and we’re watching the leaves turn color. It’s a wonderful time of year, and the designers are definitely channeling it. They’re in the autumn and Halloween spirit. Templates to make scrapping those pictures even easier, and kits to make those pictures just pop off the page!

Before I show you the new goodies, I have to show you some amazing layouts using the new Buffet and the Monthly Mix, “As the Leaves Turn”.

Created by CindyB. I love the long panorama picture, and the utilization of whitespace. The leaves scatter just make it perfect!

Created by chigirl. I love the layers. The pictures also crack me up!

Created by Deanna. I love the single picture with the framing, and the wonderful use of the elements.

Happy Halloween! No, wait, too early for that! Good morning and welcome to October! New buffet, monthly mix, and daily download goodies! The designers are gearing up for Halloween, but there’s no reason to be frightened! It just means plenty of kits to choose from!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! 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!

September Spotlight Designer


Happy Fall everyone. It’s been a busy month here at GingerScraps with our 6th Birthday Celebration. Hopefully you got all the goodies from the Facebook Hop and took advantage of the great sales. The weather is finally cooling off in my corner of the states (North Carolina) and I’m looking forward to some gorgeous leaf colors soon.

This month, our feature designers are Clever Monkey Graphics and Wimpychompers. I got a chance to ask Tracey of Clever Monkey Graphics some of our get-to-know-you questions.

What is your design process?

Choose theme, choose colors which often involves lots of play, looks for inspiration, start designing.

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

Most of my work is done in Photoshop 4.0. Occasionally I open my Illustrator. I also have a Wacom Cintiq monitor that I can play on for direct to monitor doodling.

Describe your design workplace.

Usually it’s my big comfy brown leather chair with my feet up and a laptop where it belongs – on my lap. TV is often on with a cheesey movie playing that doesn’t matter if I look at it or not.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

Color, pattern

What is the last book you read?

Dinosaur Lake Book 2

Tea or coffee?

Both but I switched to decaf a year ago.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I’ve pretty much given that all up as I hate making the messes and my tastes have changed about what I want decorating my wall or house. Also having my daughter a little older now we’re not doing kid krafts.

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

I really shouldn’t feed it! But I do love Canadian chocolate and also crystallized ginger. Dark chocolate covered almonds give me a great sneaky caffeine boost since I stopped drinking caffeine.

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed (that is currently in store) and why is it your favorite?

I really don’t know – I always go back to thinking I love the Under the Boardwalk pair of kits. I really enjoyed using my Tropical Aloha and At the Zoo kits recently too. Can’t really say why I love some more than others. I just click with some more than others.




What is your favorite thing about

I find it to be a great and friendly community of people.

What is the most used App on your phone?

I’m old school – I still don’t have a smart phone.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Bad sci fi!

How long have you been designing?

Eight years.

Salty or sweet?

One followed by the other!

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

I’d like to go back a few years to have some great sit down conversations with my Nana who has since passed on.

Thanks Tracey!! Make sure you check out her Facebook page, her Blog, and her store at GingerScraps.

Keep an eye out for some new questions and check the Gingerscraps Facebook page for ways that you can be involved.

But for now, tell us in the comments, what is your favorite Clever Monkey Graphics or Wimpychomper kit?


Fresh Baked: September 26, 2014

Whoo! Did you have a blast with the birthday party? We hope you got plenty of goodies, but not too much. The designers have created some wonderful kits, and there’s definitely a little something for everyone!

Before we get to the goodies, you know that I have to show off a few layout using this month’s buffet and the newest monthly mix, Nostalgic Summer.

Created by CindyB. I love the use of the hashtag for the title. I love the little flowers in the corners.

Created by becky_a. I love the layers, and the clusters are beautiful.

Created by Elizabeth. I love the tiled title!
