GingerBread Ladies Sneak Peeks – 01/06/17

Happy Wednesday. Are you ready for some sneak peeks? Let’s see what the designers have coming out this week.

I love the colors of these. I can’t wait to go shopping.

It’s a Fresh New Year @ Gingerscraps

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?

We seem to start every New Year’s newsletter that way. It’s a great tradition. This year, changes might happen, but some things will stay the same. We’ll add new designers, but we won’t lose that “it’s like family” feeling you’ll always find in the forums and gallery. Thank you, all of you, for a wonderful year at Gingerscraps, and here’s to a new one filled with so much more!

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 several new designers joining the team, and our December Guest is staying through January!

Please welcome Jennifer, of Word Art World!!

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

Hello! My name is Jen Arbon and I design under the name Word Art World. I began creating word art designs over six years ago and fell in love with designing digital scrapbooking products and printable wall art. I am married to a wonderful, supportive husband and together we have three beautiful children. Currently, I am studying Web Design and want to teach Web Design at our local high school, against my two teenagers’ wishes. Years ago, I set a goal to "create" something new every day, and that is why I love designing because it gives me the opportunity to do just that.

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

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

Hmm a bio? What can I tell you about myself? My name is Kristina Messier, I design under the name of Kristmess Designs, I have been selling at Gotta Pixel since the store opened a million years ago – okay so more like 10!! I am a very shy and quiet person, I was born and raised in England, travelled the world working on Cruiseships for 4 years where I met my husband, a French Canadian, and I now live in Montreal QC Canada, with him and our 3 sons. As you know I’ve been working as a designer for the past 10 years or so before that I worked at Sears PhotoStudio taking photos of the little kiddies! I have a degree in Photography but don’t really use it now since I found my passion is with Photoshop!!
