Fresh Baked: June 01, 2013

Happy June! I’m so absolutely thrilled to share with you the wonderfulness that is coming out of Gingerscraps this month. We have a new Bake Sale, including a new and fun way to get some really stunning kits at wonderful prices.

Before we get to that, I have to share this month’s buffet. It’s called “Just Like Dad” and it’s a theme that has been heavily requested!

We have NEW Buffet options!! You asked for it, and we listened! The GS Buffet will now included FULL size kits!! In addition to the mix and match packs, you can now also find full size kits in the buffet section. The price point has been adjusted accordingly. Everything in the Buffet will always be $4.00 and under. Every month the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month). That means Full kits for $2 and a ton of mix and match packs all for $1!! You will not want to miss this!

There are so few boy-based kits, when compared to the kits geared towards girls. So many people, including the CT, and even the designers, have asked for a theme for fathers or boys, and this is the result.

Remember, if you don’t want to hear the sound, just click the button next to the play button, and it will mute it for you.

The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

Good Morning! It’s May! Can you believe it? We’ve already finished a quarter of 2013! May is a great month! School is finishing, spring is (supposed to be) in full swing!

Speaking of spring, this month’s buffet is called Spring Fling. It’s full of fun bright colors that just say “I’m ready for a change of scenery”!

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

Fresh Baked: April 12, 2013

Good morning! This week is the week of the templates! Several of the designers have created templates. There’s even a Hybrid project thrown into the mix. There are some great spring-related kits as well. So much goodness this week!

Speaking of goodness, I picked out some, in my opinion, wonderful layouts this week. Again, two are of the Nature’s Delight buffet, and the third is using the April Monthly Mix, Fresh Air.


Created by mamaape, using the buffet. I love the use of the word arts, and the beautiful cluster work. It’s just such a beautiful layout.


Created by Scrapper, with Nature’s Delight. I love how the whole layout has an old-time feel to it, and matches so well to the pictures.


Created by chigirl, using Fresh Air. I love the use of the white space, and the graph paper strip to label where and when the pictures were taken. The pictures make me wish it was warmer!

And now, on to the amazingness that are the designers here at Gingerscraps!

It’s Spring! Are you excited for Easter? Did you observe Passover? No matter which holiday you observe, this month has been all about family. This week, Gingerscraps is adding to their family! Wendy Tunison Designs has joined our team! We’re so excited to have her.

This week, we also have some great templates from Angelclaud. Crisdam Designs has some wonderful extras that would be perfect for Project 365. She’s not the only one! Connie Prince’s April Project 2013 collection is available, as well. SO much fun stuff. There’s SO much more to share, too much to list in just this little paragraph, so make sure you read on!

The Lucky Me buffet, in my own personal opinion, would really work well for any sort of layout, including some Easter ones, so make sure you pick them up!


Layout created by jbdolfin. I love that someone used the Green Beer elements. It is so funny to me! I love this layout!


Creative layout by swastinadia. The clusters are amazing. I love the blending, and how the journaling is incorporated into the layout. Beautiful layout!


Created by mdusell. I just love the picture. The colors fit so beautifully with the pieces!

Oh Friday!! How you sneak up on us always. This week, Pretty in Green created some frames that work with every kit in the store, including the new Project 365 themed packs that Kathy Winters put together. There’s sixteen packs in that series, and she’s hinted at more. Connie Prince, Bekah E Designs, Twin Mom Scraps, and Blue Heart Scraps all have some adorable Easter-themed kits. Jimbo Jambo, our guest for March, has a great template series available. That’s not everything either!

So, Sunday was St. Patrick’s Day but that doesn’t mean the “lucky” feeling needs to end! Make sure you check out the Lucky Me buffet and pick up a few packs.


Funny layout by mom2triplets04. I’m glad I’m not the only one with an addiction to web-based games. Mine’s Candy Crush Saga.


Beautiful layout by zenjen. I love the journaling. So sweet and heartfelt.


Project 365 layout by Juliemomof4. A great show of how the different parts can play together. I love it!

Happy Friday Gingerscraps Fans! This week, the designers really created some amazing things! Angelclaud, Jimbo Jambo Designs, and ViolaMoni have amazing and fun templates to work with. Pixelily, Trixie Scraps, and Connie Prince have some great bundles that will fit any scrap page you might want to make. If you’re on the hunt for good CU, Bekah E Designs has wonderful grab bag for you!

Speaking of good things, I found some seriously ADORABLE layouts for y’all to admire! I’m definitely loving the theme of “Lucky Me” and I can tell that it’s a theme everyone else is loving.


I love this layout by beckyroy. She is definitely a McCutie. I love the clusters on the side. I wish I could do it that well!


I always adore layouts by trina513. This one is no exception. I love the use of white space. The minimal amount of elements just makes the pictures stand so out. I also love the font choice!

A many photos layout by MamaCake. I love how the pictures are arranged in a circular fashion. And I love the way the little clusters just draw your eyes more to the pictures.

Before I show you the goodies the designers have in store for you, I just wanted to let you know about a speed scrap happening Saturday!

Bye February! You never stay around long enough for us to even adjust to the fact that it’s a new month, and then you’re gone. Can you believe that we’re at March already? Sixteen days until green beer, gold coins, and when everyone becomes Irish. At least that’s how it feels. As the mom of a St. Patrick’s Day child, it’s a fun holiday for us to celebrate.

The colors surrounding March seems to always be rainbows, and this month’s buffet is no exception. It’s such a fun and happy buffet, as well. You’ll be saying “Lucky Me” when you scrap with it!

The designers really showed their playful sides with this buffet!

We went with a video, to help save on loading times. Let us know what you think! To disable the sound on this video just click the speaker symbol on the player.

The CT had a lot of fun finding pictures that fit the theme, and I think that they did a great job, as well!

I just love how wonderful all of their layouts turned out! To disable the sound on this video just click the speaker symbol on the player.

Since it’s a new month, it’s time for a BAKE SALE! I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE the bake sale! You never know what you’re going to find in there, but it’s always something that you just can’t live without!

Remember, that when you spend $10 in the store, you get an amazing grab bag created by one of our amazing designers. This month, Terra, of Sugar Kissed Designs created a wonderful one for y’all!

I love the non-traditional love colors! I don’t know about you, but I crave chocolate every time I saw the preview. Excuse me while I run out and grab some chocolate real quick.

Okay, I’m back! Did you miss me? Okay, sorry, I’ll stop now.

So many great and amazing designs! I’m having troubles deciding what I’m going to get first! I’m sure you’re having the same problem!

It’s always a sad moment when a designer decides that it’s time for her to retire. Char, of Wyld Web Designs has made that decision. Before she leaves, she wanted to have one last hoorah, so take advantage of this great sale while you still can!

Char, we’ll miss you, and we wish you all of the best in your future endeavors!

Connie Prince wanted to make sure that I let y’all know about her sale!!

With that, I bid you adieu. Enjoy your weekend!

Fresh Baked: New Designer

Good morning! I hope that your Monday won’t be too hectic. If it is, maybe this will bring a smile to your face!

We have a new designer joining the team! Bekah, of Bekah E Designs!

We asked, as always, for Bekah to tell us a little about herself, and this what she had to share:

I have been married to my teenage sweetheart for 19 years. We live in the Great Northwest with our 3 beautiful children.
I originally discovered digital scrapbooking through a Christian mom’s forum that I was a member of. Some of the mom’s in the forum would share these beautiful decorative pages with photos on them. (I later found out they called them, “layouts”). ;) I thought these “layouts” were so amazing and started doing some research on the internet which led me to purchase my very first digital scrapbooking software.

I had found a new creative outlet and I was totally hooked! And so, in order to feed my new found obsession, I joined a few digital scrapbooking forums and immediately joined in on as many of the forum challenges as I could. I later started designing my own digital word art and offering freebies on my blog and at the end of 2008 was asked to join the design team of a new digital scrapbooking store that would soon be opening.

I am a self taught Photoshop junkie and have dabbled a bit in Illustrator as well. When I am not designing I enjoy, hand crafting my own paper and fabric flowers, crocheting, and spending quality time with my family.

I’m excited to see some of her other projects, and not just her scrap designs!!

Here are just a few of the items that she has in her store for you:


http://store.gingerscraps.net/Bits-of-Yesterday.html


http://store.gingerscraps.net/Winter-s-Song.html


http://store.gingerscraps.net/Just-Because.html

Such a variety in just those! There are many more available in the store, so make sure you check them out!

Fresh Baked: New Designer

Good morning! I hope that your Monday wasn’t too hectic. If it was, maybe this will bring a smile to your face!

Two  big things are happening at Gingerscraps. One is that we have a new designer joining the team! Theresa, of Simple Girl Scraps!

We asked, as always, for Theresa to tell us a little about herself, and this what she had to share:

Hi Everyone! My name is Theresa, aka Simple Girl Scraps. I’m a 28 year old Canadian and a creative enthusiast! I love all things creative and crafty! I started scrapbooking when I was in middle school and started digiscrapping nearly 5 years ago when I moved to Japan and had limited access to scrapbooking supplies! I started designing 2 and a half years ago with some encouragement from a friend and I love it!
Other things I love: vintage cameras, owls, cooking, thrifting, quilting, running, and weight lifting!

Oh wow. She’s lived in Japan. That’s so cool! I can’t wait to hear more about it!

Here are just a few of the items that she has in her store for you:


http://store.gingerscraps.net/Have-No-Fear.html


http://store.gingerscraps.net/My-Everyday-Life.html


http://store.gingerscraps.net/My-Story.html

Okay, I think I might all of them. Anything with a computer and a smartphone speaks to me, what can I say?

Well, I guess that’s it.
What? What do you mean I forgot something.

OH! That second thing I promised.

With each new year, it means a fresh start. In the digi world, that means a retirement.
No, wait, calm down. No designers are retiring, as far as I know.
It’s okay, that was my first reaction too.

No, Gingerscraps is having a HUGE retirement sale. For the products in the sale section, this is your last chance to get those kits and templates!

Okay, that’s it! Thank you for reading and just being a part of GS! We adore our members!

See you again on Friday!
