Let’s start this new year off right!  What better way start then with a $1 Bake Sale!  This Bake Sale will last for 5 days!!

 We also have our new grab bag which you can have for free!  Free you ask?  That’s right!  You get this grab bag for free when you spend $10 in the store.  Marie H Designs worked very hard and let me tell you how CUTE it is!

As always we have our Buffet kits too!  This month’s buffet is called “Colors of my Life” and our designers did a great job.  These will also be $1 for 5 days!

This buffet is all about a pop of color. Make you Layout stand out in the crowd! Also perfect for all your 365/52 Layouts. Choose where you want the pop of color to highlight your weekly memories. Set against a lovely array of smokey tones- there are a variety of bright and dramatic colors, creating a truly eye catching and memorable layout. Colors of My Life is a buffet you will not want to miss!


Here is what our creative team did for us!

Let’s keep it going with our Guest Designer!



Ive known Ryan for a while and she is such a great person!  I can’t wait for you all to get to know her better!  Here is what she had to say about herself!

 Hello everyone! My name is Ryan, I’m 26 years old, I have a 5 year old ‘big boy’ (according to him) named Gavin, and a boyfriend, whom I might as well be married to, since we’ve ben together for 6 years now, this last December.. 

I am currently in school, getting my AA in liberal studies, to become an elementary school teacher, as well as an AA in social sciences.. I als work part time at a local grocery store in the deli dept, and let me just say, I make a pretty grubbin’ sandwich! lol
I love spending time with my family, going to family events and also taking pictures! Over the summer I bought myself an early birthday present, and well probably christmas too for the next few years! a nikon D5100, that I am absolutely obsessed with! It’s a rarity to see me without a camera with me now, I just love being able to capture memories of my neices and nephews whenever I can..
As for Roseytoes Designs, I actually started scrapping in 2007 after my son was born because I didn’t really have the time to sit down and devote time to paper scrapping anymore.. In 2010 I was encouraged to give designing a try and I got hooked, and bad! lol the first mini kit I ever did looked horrible, lol, since I didn’t really know what I was doing, and took me literally all night to complete! looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way, I love creating scrapbook kits And now, templaes as well and I’m trying new things to be able to branch out and not be so limited on my designs.

 Here are just a few of her goodies!  Her store has TONS more so make sure you look!

Now I know I mentioned new challenges so let me tell you about a new challenge.  Each month you will be given a challenge to use the previous month’s daily download.  Now that you know that you will need the daily download for a challenge, you can buy December’s Daily Download  – Just Keep Smiling by Connie Prince right now.  You’ll need it!


Beautiful huh?  Now is the time to start collecting January’s Daily Download!  This month was brought to you by LauraMarie! The image is linked with the download for Day One, then make sure to head to the blog each and every day to pick up every peice of this lovely kit!

We are so pleased to have the lovely Sherry Ferguson joining us this month!!


Here is a little bit about Sherry in her own words:

“My  name is Sherry and I’m very excited to be joining GingerScraps this  month! I’ve loved taking pictures and keeping various scrapbooks  throughout my life. Right after my first daughter was born, I bought my  first digital camera and started doing some “scrapbooking” in various  computer software programs. Then, in 2006, a friend introduced me to  Photoshop and the world of digital scrapbooking.  I was almost  immediately drawn to the design aspect of things and opened my first  store shortly thereafter.  It  never ceases to amaze me that there is always something new to learn.   I live in Texas  with my husband of eleven years and our two beautiful daughters who are  ten and eight. My girls are very much opposites and there is never a  dull moment with the two of them. When I am not in front of the  computer you will find me baking treats for my food allergic daughter,  watching old episodes of Little House  on the Prairie with my girls, or experimenting with different iPhone  apps as I seem to have developed an addiction to them. I love my life,  my family, and this fun filled hobby!”

She has her shop full of goodness! here are a few of her kits, but be sure to go check out her full shop! She even has a few items in the Bake Sale!! Yahooo!

Here is a little more about Gina… in her own words,

“Hi, I’m Gina and a mother of two children, Marisa who is 7 and Tristan who is 2. I named him after Brad Pitt’s character in Legends of the Fall. I have been married for 14 years this coming October. I lived in Sarasota, FL since 2001. I started out my digi/scrapping hobby now career with paper scrapping back in 2003. I worked part time at a scrapbook store and was on the design team. I have always loved computers and before I switched my major in college to Fashion Buying and Design I majoring in Advertising with Graphic Arts. That was before it was on computers though. So when I found out about digital scrap-booking in 2007, I naturally switched over. I ended up over the years being on 11 CT’s and at the end of last summer I decided I wanted to design. I am pretty much self taught with PS and now just starting to learn Illustrator. But last November when I debuted as a guest designer, it was just templates. Only recently did I start designing kits. I am still learning and love it when I find out a new tip or trick or way of doing something in PS. I use CS 5 for both PS and Illustrator. I also use Art Rage and Repper. I can draw but not very well, so that is a goal of mine to try to draw more myself. Besides digi, I love to make jewelry and have a store at Etsy and I love reading. just got a Kindle earlier this year and am so very happy with it. I was lucky enough to go to a digi convention this past March in Vegas and will go again this coming March. Since I also work a full time 40 hour a week job, I cherish spending time with my two kiddos and only spend time on my digi after they go to bed, which means very late nights for me and hardly any sleep. I am have been so fortunate to have made some truly remarkable and lasting friendships with some of the girls I have met online through this wonderful hobby!”

Jen Yurko!!!!

Here is a little more about Jen:

I’m a 38yo stay at home mom, married to the most awesome man on the planet 😉 We are an army family… DH has been career all the way. Which really doesn’t bother me, having grown up a Navy brat. Between the two of us, we have 7 children… ages 19, 17, 16, 13, 12, 11 & 8… plus a cat and a dog. I’ve been digi-scrapping for about 3 1/2 years now, designing for a little over 2 of those years. I love the creative process and have recently switched gears in my designing to include more doodlage and less purchased CU. There are CU designers out there that are just too good to pass up though 😉 Aside from digital scrapbooking & designing, I love making blinkies & banners, I dabble in web design, and I am hooked on Mario games for our Wii. I’ve also gotten myself a Kindle and have been reading a lot lately! I’m so excited to be here at GingerScraps and hope you enjoy my designs as much as I did creating them!
