Fresh Baked: February 10, 2016

It’s Friday. Sometimes, it feels like the day will never come. Sometimes, it flies by and you’re wondering where the time went! Hopefully, the week went somewhere in between! The designers aren’t letting the speeding time keep them from designing! This week, they have some amazing new products coming!

Who’s ready for Scrapping Survivor?! I know I sure am!!

GingerBread Ladies Sneak Peeks – 2/10/17

My goodness do we have a bunch of sneak peeks (and a few full views) for you this week. I’m just going to jump right in.

Aren’t they all lovely? Make sure to head over to the store on Friday and grab these awesome beauties.

February Feature Designer – Little Rad Trio

Welcome to February. Our Feature Designer this month is Jennifer of Little Rad Trio. She was gracious enough to answer my questions and even provide a little something for you.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

By accident! I bought Element 7.0 at Costco back in 2007 just for the ability to edit photos. It came with a Learn Digital Scrapbooking CD. I only watched the videos to help learn Photoshop and ended up falling in love!

What made you decide to design?

There were certain themed kits that I wanted and couldn’t find. So I started playing around and took some classes on designing.

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

I used Photoshop 6.0 and Illustrator 6.0. I’m fairly new at Illustrator so I still have lots to learn from that. Occasionally I’ll use a tablet for drawing too.

Describe your design workplace.

I don’t have a typical work space. I do most of my designing anywhere. Have laptop, Will Travel. I also do some occasional designing on my IRL work computer from time to time. Having dual monitors makes a world of difference.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

My favorite thing about designing is seeing people creating beautiful layouts with my products. It is so rewarding when I create something that someone just loves and then creates stunning layouts.

What is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?

Historic USA – Civil War kit is still my favorite. I love how the elements turned out and the color scheme is one of my favorites. Plus I’m a sucker for the Civil War history.

What was your first job?

In between my 10th & 11th grade in High School, I spent the summer working at my dad’s insurance business as a file clerk. All I did was file and pull files for the underwriters. Now, I run the place with a staff of almost 50 people and 3 locations.

How many languages do you speak? What are they?

I only speak English. I’ve taken some Spanish classes, but unfortunately I haven’t even come close to mastering.

What’s your favorite holiday?

4th of July! I love the warm summer days, spending time with the family at the beach or on the lake. And I love fireworks and celebrating our Nation’s Birthday!

What is your favorite family holiday tradition?

Christmas Eve! We gather at my parents, eat dinner, then we have to sing Christmas Carols before we can open presents. We then start with the kids. Once they are all done, we spend the rest of the evening with the adults opening gifts. Then, we may watch home movies or old time Christmas Movies like It’s a Wonderful Life or White Christmas

What three things do you think of most each day?

My children, my husband and my parents. They are all whole world!

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

WARNING! Needs plenty of sleep, so let her sleep in!!

Do you collect anything?

I used to collect Precious Moments figures. But once I had children, that stopped. However, now that they are older, I might have to start back at it.

If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?

There’s so many, I don’t know if I could pick one. Speed was be awesome! Being invisible would come in handy from time to time. Strength would also be a plus. The ability to freeze time would be a benefit too, especially when I have a deadline and I’m running out of time.

Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

Water! I’ve been addicted to it. I can’t seem to have enough of it! Of course, Water is a necessity, so next I would say the internet. I’m constantly online for a variety of things from designing, shopping, checking the weather or getting directions, etc/etc.

If you were a fruit or vegetable, which one would you be?

Any kind of fruit! Because everyone loves fruit over vegetables!!

What would you prefer as a second home: Mountain cabin, beach house, or big city condo?

Mountain Cabin with a lake. The views would be stunning and so peaceful and quiet. But I would have to have internet!! When I was in high school, my mom painted a picture of a mountain cabin by a lake and this has been my dream place ever since and by far my absolute favorite painting!!

What would you do on your dream date?

There are so many things I could do, that it couldn’t be limited to one. I love the romance with candles and soft music, but I also love doing things like zip lining or ATVing.

Thanks Jennifer!! Make sure to check out her GS Store, her Facebook page, and her blog. Also make sure you are grabbing the Daily Download every day from the GS blog to get all the pieces of this awesome kit.

And, just for reading all the way to the bottom, make sure to take advantage of this great coupon she is offering:

GingerBread Ladies Sneak Peeks – 2/3/16

Good Thursday morning. I thought I would start your Thursday morning off with some sneak peeks for tomorrow’s releases.

Make sure to check out the blog later to see layouts from our store CT made with these awesome kits. And tomorrow, head over to the store to fill your cart!

Fresh Baked: February 01, 2017

It’s that time of year where everything is decked out in pinks and reds. Well, except for the buffet. The designers are gearing up for spring and mixing it with winter. The perfect color palette for anything you could want to scrap!

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

Don’t forget to check out the Buffet Bundles, one easy click to add bundles of Buffet goodies to your cart, and an amazing value too!

tag

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

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs, each unique but working so well with the other designers’ creations

The CT did such a great job showing how well all of the kits blend. They all did wonderful work!

This is just a few of the layouts. Keep an eye out in future newsletters to see more. Maybe even one of yours, if you make sure you put it into the Buffet section of the gallery!

This month, we have a guest designer for February and a new designer joining the team!

Please welcome Martine of Christaly Scrap!

We asked Martine for a quick bio and this is what she had to share:

My name is Martine aka Christaly. Why Christaly? A simple combination of the first name of my childrens. I live in Canada, specifically in Quebec. So I speak French but I manage to communicate in English. I’ve been creating Templates and Brushes for a few years now. I currently sell at E-Scape & Scrap and at Scrappy Bee. I am very happy to be Guest for GingerScraps.

Here are a few items that are available in her store:

Also welcome Aimee of Aimee Harrison!

new06

We asked Aimee to tell us a little about herself and this is what she had to share:

Hi! I’m Aimee Harrison and I’ve been designing digital scrapbook supplies since 2009. I live in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan with my 3 cats Dandelion, Shakey and Snuggles. I really enjoy researching genealogy, scrapbooking, photography, road trips, antiquing, music, documentaries, history, archaeology and nature. And many times these interests are exhibited through in my creations.
I absolutely love creating scrapbook kits for you all. My style is lush, vibrant and rich – perfect for those who crave a more traditional approach to scrapbooking but love the realism. I like to give things an artsy feel by incorporating bits like paint, splatters and glitter to my designs. And I love to see the variety of layouts created with my Collections and encourage folks to message me if they have questions, requests or just want to share a creation.
I anticipate getting to know you all through hosting a Speed Scrap chat each month as there is nothing I love more than spending time getting to know people in the digiscrap community and giving them little goodies along the way. I hope you join me soon.
Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I’m going to love it here.
