July is almost over, and it’s becoming a bit of a scorcher of a summer! Time to get some ice cold water, and plop ourselves in front of the computer, in the comfort of the air conditioning! Enjoy some great sales and delicious new goodies!

Remember when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great collab!

Happy Wednesday. How is the temperature where you live? Here? It’s HOT!! We’re supposed to be around 100 degrees the next three days. YUCK! I see myself staying in a lot. To take my mind off the heat, I thought I would share some of this week’s sneak peeks with you.

And, this one “technically” releases on Friday, but is already live on the site. A special treat this week from Mags Graphics.

Have a great rest of the week.

July Feature Designer – Little Rad Trio

Happy July my digi friends. This month we’re talking to the lovely Jennifer of Little Rad Trio.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

I wanted some themed kits that I couldn’t find around the digital land, so I started making my own.

What made you decide to design?

See above plus I love creative outlet it has.

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

I use CS6 and I have been trying really hard to learn Illustrator.

Describe your design workplace.

It varies. I have use my laptop the most, but occasionally use my computer at work which has 2 monitors.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

The creative process. I love being able to have free range to let my mind wander.

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

My favorite kit is Historic USA – Civil War. I love the color palette and all the themed elements.

What do you do when you are feeling very sad or depressed?

I love watching chick flicks. They always make me smile.

Which is the best vacation you’ve ever had in your life?

That’s a tough one. I love spending time with my family, so any vacation I have taken with my husband, kids and parents and siblings have always been my favorites.

Do you believe in ghosts?

Actually yes, I do. I even had an experience while in Hawaii. I was house sitting on the AFB for a friend. My mom and I were in the living room when a shadow appeared on a wall that was completely impossible to have a shadow. It was on a window. A figure of a person walked into the window, then stopped and appeared to look in. Then it simply disappeared. It was not scary or anything like that. But my mom and I tried everything to “break” the shadow by standing right in front of it and moving our arms. No luck. Very intriguing. I remember saying to my mom “Do you see what I see?”. She replied “yes”. Very weird!

Who is your celebrity crush?

Brett Eldredge. I have always liked his music, but when I saw him in concert, I was like “WOW! He’s HOT!!”

What do you order when you go to Starbucks?

I don’t go to Starbucks because I’m not a coffee fan. Yeah, call me weird!

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Peanut Butter. I love my mom’s peanut butter cookies, which is using my grandma’s recipe.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

No comment. LOL!

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I would say I’m pretty much in the middle. It definitely depends on the situation.

Would you change your name if you could? If so, what would you change it to?

Jennifer is an extremely common name and there are times I wish my name was different. But I would never change it, because my parents chose it for me.

What is your favorite pizza topping?

I love pepperoni, green pepper, onion and jalapeno with extra sauce and light cheese. Yep – I’m weird. Not only do I not like coffee, I’m not a cheese lover.

If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be?

Hug your children (or family members) when you can. Before you know it, they are all grown up.

What do you do to wake up in the morning?

Get out of bed very slowly! If I don’t start the day with a shower, it’s definitely going to be a slow moving day.

What is a small luxury that you treat yourself to?

I love cosmos made with Grey Goose and Cointreau. They are so yummy.

What did you want to be when you were small?

An elementary school teacher.

Which would you rather do: wash dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house?

NONE! I hate doing chores!!

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

Cleaning! No question about it.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Donate a large portion to the CJD Foundation to help bring awareness to Prion Diseases and hopefully one day find a cure or even treatment. I miss my sister-in-law so much and I really wish we could have known what she was going through when she was sick. We all would have treated her illness much differently and I would have spent as much time as I could have with her.

What’s the most interesting thing you can see out of your office or kitchen window?

Wildlife. I see deer, fox, coyote, etc. It’s always fun to see what I’ll see next.

Share your favorite recipe with us.

My grandma’s home made spaghetti. It’s not really a recipe but more of a throw in a bunch of spices into tomato sauce & hamburger until it tastes good. Each time I make it, it tastes slightly different, but always so good.

Thanks Jennifer! Make sure to check out her GS Store, her FB page, and her blog. Also, make sure you are checking the blog every day for the daily download to get pieces of the kit she created for us.

Which is your favorite Little Rad Trio kit? Let us know in the comments below!

Fresh Baked: July 01, 2016

Summer is here, for sure. The temps are rising, and July is already showing itself to be a scorcher. Oh, we’re discussing the designs right now! The designers have knocked the buffet out of the park. They’ve done an amazing job, and there are so many yummy goodies this week!

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)!

*NEW Buffet Bundles* Take a look at our all new Buffet Bundles! Each buffet for 2016 will have a sub category for our Buffet Bundles. One easy click to add bunches of Buffet goodies to your cart, and an amazing value too!

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

Designer Sneak Peeks – July 1, 2016

Oh my goodness. It’s July? Half way through 2016? Where is the time going? Just wanted to give you a little sneaky peek at the goodies coming out Friday (I think you will be pleased).

Make sure to head to the store on Friday to grab these and more. Remember – it’s buffet time.

From The Archives Vol. 3

I cannot believe we are already at Volume 3 of looking back in our Archives. Have you found anything you liked yet or added to your collection? I hope that you have.

The reason we are doing this is because our designers have great kits and collections from years ago! Some of us may be new to digital scrapbooking or new to GingerScraps. Some people don’t check the store every week. Basically, things can and do get lost in the weekly shuffle of the store.

With that in mind, we are going to go back and look at some great products. Our hope is that you find some great things you might have been looking for; or find something that you didn’t know you needed but totally do now that you see it! If you want more, you can always check out what was showcased in Volume 1 and Volume 2.

This month’s look back I am not going to do just five items. We are going to take a look at 10! All images are linked to the store. We will be looking back to 2012 and 2013. Enjoy!

I so enjoy LuvEwe designs. This is one of her oldest kits in the store. She always includes lots of word art. I like it!

 

This is the oldest Ponytail Designs kit in the store. Take a look at the jam packed kit!! I never let a good boy kit not join my collection…just like this one!

 

Not one of her oldest kits, for sure. Connie has been giving us great kits for a while now. This is one of the oldest in her GingerScraps’ store. Also in my scrap stash….just look at all those kitties!

 

What scraptastic lady doesn’t need this GignerBread Ladies collab?!

 

What great dad colors! I really like the guy and the crown. Great for any kind of photos, but especially the Dad ones!

 

I know we are in the middle of summer (in the states) and not really thinking back to school…just wait…it will be here in a blink! Here is one of the older Monthly Mixes. Love those owls!

 

What a pretty kit with the slightest bit of shabby feel to it. This is the oldest Inspired Designs kit in the store. Oldie but goody!

 

i am not going to lie…this is my all time favorite Trixie Scrap’s kit. The colors, the theme, the elements and the papers. I have used this kit over-and-over. I just thought others should see it as well!

 

Pretty in Green has been with us for a while! This is one of her older kits that has not retired. It is such a pretty kit as well. I just want to take that lion home with me!

 

Just like Pretty in Green, Colie’s Corner has been not only with GingerScraps for a long while, but designing for a long while. You might not find her releasing every week at the moment, you can find some fantastic and timeless kits in the Archives!


What did you think? Going to add any to your stash or wishlist? I know I added quite a few all of them to my wish list. 🙂 I think next time around we are going to take a step away from the digital scrapbooking kits and look at something else from the archive. Do you have any suggestions? What would you like showcased from the archives?

We would love to see what you scrapped with these or any of our products. Make sure you upload those layouts to the gallery! If you have used any of these great finds from the past, link us up here!
