Fresh Baked: December 01, 2016

Good morning Gingerscrappers! The time for counting down until the new year is upon us! But do not despair! The designers have cooked up some gorgeous kits for the buffet, all sorts of styles! It’s going to be a great month! We’ll send 2016 off with style!

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

*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

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 new guest designer!


Please welcome Rhonda, of Eyeinspire!

We asked Rhonda to give us a quick note about herself, and this is what she had to share:

I’m Rhonda Tonkinoon I live in Castle Rock Colorado with my amazing husband of 9 years and our little fur baby Pia. When I am not designing you will find me reading (mostly Jennifer L. Armentrout) experimenting in the kitchen, or watching the latest Hallmark holiday movie.

Here are just a few things she has in her store:

This month’s Monthly Mix is called “Santa’s Helper”! It is a gorgeous kit created by Just So Scrappy, Lindsay Jane, and Ponytails Designs. Don’t be afraid to be you!

It’s time for a new daily download, and this one is awesome.

But before I show you this month’s, here’s the full preview of last month’s:


And here’s this month’s:


Oh, I think this one will be great for December!

Remember, the download is kept up for 5 days, and then it is taken down. If you miss pieces, the kit will be available for purchase on the first day of the following month.

Remember, if you complete 10 challenges, just ten, you get a free kit as well!!


I know I’m going to make sure I do my 10 challenges for THIS, that’s for sure

November Feature Designer – Laurie’s Scraps and Designs

Welcome to November. This month our feature designer is one of our newer designers, Laurie’s Scraps and Designs. I asked her some questions so that you can get to know her a bit better.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

My sister told me about it so I downloaded some freebies and loved it!

What made you decide to design?

I have always been creative. So Designing was just another creative outlet for me.

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

PS CS4, Illustrator CS5.

Describe your design workplace.

Desk in the playroom so I can be with my kids too.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

I love the color palettes. I love to see how it comes to life with a color palette!

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

It is a tie between Fall Harvest and Fright Night. I love the watercolor elements.

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

Design, and eat chocolate

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

I used to live overseas as a child in Malaysia. So we would travel a bunch while we lived over there. So traveling on that side of the world was amazing!

Which is your most cherished childhood memory?

Playing Hide and go seek in the dark with my family.

Do you believe in ghosts?

No, not really.

Who is your celebrity crush?

I don’t really have one, but if I had to choose, it would be Thor.

What do you order when you go to Starbucks?

I rarely go there because it is far from my house, but I usually get a smoothie of some sort.

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Chocolate with Chocolate Chips.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

14? I think?

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Optimist for sure!

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

No. My Mom used to tease my Dad after I became an adult, that I was named after his old girlfriend. Good thing my Mom was an independent woman, because I know she must have liked the name too, or I would be named something else.

What is your favorite pizza topping?


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

Be nice to everyone, and don’t gossip behind people’s back. It just makes you look bad!

What do you do to wake up in the morning?

Check my emails and Facebook.

What is a small luxury that you treat yourself to?

Ice Cream. I lost about 50 pounds a couple years ago, and I try to not eat it, but I have to sometimes.

What did you want to be when you were small?

Teacher, Lawyer, or a Doctor.

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

VACUUM! I love it, It is immediate satisfaction. I should go vacuum now!

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

Cleaning for sure! When I get designing, I sometimes never have the desire to stop and go clean!

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Buy a new house! And pay Bills!

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

The neighbors…. like the whole street! It is good when I am looking for my kids to come home from school.

Share your favorite recipe with us.

ohhhh, I have so many. But since it is getting cold outside. I will share my favorite soup recipe. You can leave out the cream and sour cream to make it more healthy. ENJOY!


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


In a large saucepan, saute the chicken, onion and garlic powder in
oil until chicken is no longer pink. Add the beans, broth, chilies
and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for
30 minutes.
Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream and whipping cream. Yield: 7

Thanks so much Laurie. Make sure to check out her GS store, her FB page, her FB group, and her blog. Also, be sure you are collecting each of the Daily Downloads from our blog to get this fun kit she is giving to us this month.
