Fresh Baked: May 01, 2015

If you don’t have a cup of coffee or a glass of water, I suggest you grab yourself one before you start this newsletter. It’s a long one but it’s so chocked full of amazing goodies that it will be so worth it!

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!

Shh! Don’t tell anyone that I’m telling you this!!

Coming soon to a Gingerscraps near you …

INSD is coming and you need to have your selfie ready, clicking finger primed and stretched, and the desire to have a lot of fun!

But, before all that arrives, the designers still have some other great things to share with you. You’re going to love the new templates from several designers, and some beautiful kits of different themes! So many lovely products coming out this week!

Before I show you the goodies, I have to share some layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “Dream Big


Created by scrappinbella. Always so jealous of the Florida shots. Makes me miss living there! I love how the shot of the rocket is broken up with the multiple frames! And the cluster work is just outstanding!


Created by hclappy. I love how the lighting in the pictures matches the kit perfectly!


Created by JillW. I really love the yellow background with all of the white space. I also love the picture done in black and white. So perfect.

Happy Tax Day (for our US friends). Guess it’s a good thing that it’s also Bake Sale time so you can get some new goodies while not spending much. So let’s see what our fabulous designers are offering up this month.

And don’t forget, if you spend $10, you get this awesome collab {let it rain} for free. This would be perfect for me this week as it’s rained off and on every day.

Come back and leave a comment with some of the goodies you picked up. Remember these are only on sale until April 20.

April is here. That means changes in the weather from one extreme to the other. Rain in one area. Snow in another. Basically, Mother Nature is saying stay home, cuddle up inside, and scrapbook. The designers are here to help you with that! They have released some wonderful kits this week, as well as some gorgeous templates! You’ll find something, for sure, that you just can’t do without!

Before I show you the goodies, I have to share some layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “Dream Big


Created by CindyB. I love the angle of the picture, and the use of the mask on it!


Created by Colleen. I love how PERFECTLY the kit matches the pictures. Also, I love that she scraps older pictures!


Created by MamaCake. I love the layers and the cluster work is just wonderful!
