Let’s Celebrate: Patriotism

With Independence Day in the States being this past week, and Canada day last Saturday, I thought we should take a look at the great items here at GingerScraps to get all those photos we took scrapped! There is an entire section dedicated to all this patriotic in the store. Pages and pages of goodies. I am going to showcase just a few of them. If none of these are what you are looking for, make sure to check that section out!

Made in the USA by Whimpychompers | Made in the USA is a great collection for those who love celebrating their patriotic side with family and friends.

Oh Canada…Eh! by Scraps N Pieces | Canada has a reputation for moose, maple syrup, and great manners. But more than that, Canada is a vast country full of beautiful sights and lots of snow. Oh Canada… Eh! celebrates the joys of Canada for residents and visitors alike. This kit’s rich color palette draws on the red and white of the flag, the greens of the trees, and a warm neutral to complement all of your photos. Featured elements include moose galore, maple leaves, hockey gear, ephemera, and a cairn. Oh Canada… Eh! also contains word strips for famous destinations, a square alpha for title work, and enough flowers, banners, and ribbons to decorate your pages for days. Celebrate Canada with Oh Canada… Eh!

Celebrate July Mini Kit by JoCee Designs | With the 1st of July being Canada Day and 4th of July being American Independence Day there is so much to celebrate in the first week of July.

 

Eh! by Ponytails Designs | Canadians are known for being either really polite, or being crazed hockey fans… both of which are often true! However, there is so much more to us than that. Coming from the second largest country in the world, Canadians have a rich and diverse culture all our own. And while we don’t show it as much as our American friends, we love our country too! Before the 2010 Winter Olympic games in Vancouver, our Prime Minister asked us not to be afraid to engage in an “uncharacteristic outburst of patriotism.” He went on to urge us to “not be afraid to wave those flags, we’ll apologize to the world for our immodesty later.” So grab yourself a Timmy’s double-double and have a look at my own little outburst of patriotism. Sorry, eh!

 

Let’s Celebrate – SUMMER!

Let’s Celebrate – Father’s Day!

In our family there are more guys than gals. I find myself snapping up nearly every masculine kit/collection that comes my way. Here are GingerScraps we have a section dedicated to not only all things manly, but to Father’s Day as well. With Father’s day just a few days away here in the states, I thought we could take a look at things to scrap those men and boys in our lives. All images below are linked to their counterpart in the store.

Whether your favorite guy is your dad, husband, brother or son, let them know they’re your favorite guy by scrapping all those manly memories with My Favorite Guy, the new digital scrapbook kit by JB Studio. My Favorite Guy has been created in a beautiful color palette of blue and orange, and is chock full of elements and word bits that will help you document all the fun memories of the guys in your life.

 

Dapper: From our GingerScraps designers.

 

About Dad is truly about so much more than Father’s Day. I’ve included lots of elements in many themes that men tend to enjoy; sports, gaming and tech, tools and wood-working, hunting & fishing, beer and bbq, menswear, and perhaps some of their less favorite things like household chores. There is a ton of word art which means I couldn’t show it all to you in the preview and a half-dozen journal cards too. I’ve included a number of wordarts featuring words like grandpa, papa, and neutrals like guy. This is a go-to extremely versatile kit for pages about the men in your lives.

 

Summer is here so get your grill on! License to Grill is the ultimate summer cookout collection, packed with everything you need to document a good old fashioned BBQ, family gatherings, tailgate parties, 4th of July cookouts, even the self-proclaimed “grill master” in your family … Overflowing with my own custom-drawn graphics, this collection includes burgers and hot dogs, steaks and skewers, condiments and grilling utensils, beer and soda bottles, grills, flames, plus many other grilling elements and patterns to make for tasty lasting memories.

 

Monthly Mix: Hey Handsome: A collaboration from our GingerScraps designers. Father’s Day. Summer. Brothers. Sons. Fathers. All the males in your life are meant to be celebrated! With this kit, now you can do it, perfectly! Show off those wonderful men in your life!

 

Man Of The House: A collaboration from our GingerScraps designers.

 

Perfect for layouts about a special man in your life, your own father, your other half, or grandfathers alike, this kit is a must-have to scrap the men in your life. Full of manly accessories and bold masculine colors.

 

 

 

King of the Grill – Digital Scrapbooking Kit by Ponytails Designs BBQ… with a pair of tongs, some flames, and a big chunk of meat a man establishes himself as a specialty gourmet chef. Each grill master has his own style and special marinade, and much time is spent discussing the ins and outs of the process with buddies. Standing over a grill, a man can feel like a “real” man providing meat for his family. (And behind every grill master there’s usually a woman doing the bulk of the work!)

 

My Dad Kit from Blue Heart Scraps, to coordinate with the June 2015 Buffet. Includes 15 textured papers (6 plain, 9 patterned) and 54 elements.

Let’s Celebrate | Snow!

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! I know there are plenty of you out there that are sick of it already. Coming to the end of January and you have seen enough of it. I however live in the southern parts of the states. We hardly see any. We are lucky to get a dusting once a year; and I LOVE snow! I thought it would be fun to showcase some great items from the store to get those snow-filled photos scrapped.

I also enjoyed looking at all things purple last week; and showing you some lovely photos to get those creative juices flowing as well. I thought I would show you some snow photos to do the same thing. These images are from Pexels. (All photos on Pexels are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means the pictures are completely free to be used for any legal purpose.)

 

 

 

As well as those gorgeous photos, here are some lovely layouts to help you with some snow-tastic inspiration as well!

 

 

 

As always I will leave you with some great products from the store. There is an entire section dedicated to all things winter. Here are just a few of my favorites.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Creative Style | Project 52/365

Happy 2017 everyone! I got a bit overwhelmed at the start of the year; and I failed to bring you your weekly inspiration. Even though we are two weeks into 2017, it isn’t too late to start on our photo projects. I am talking about Project 365 and Project 52. What are those? According to Google

Simply put, Project 365 is committing to taking one photo a day for a year. Whether you’re using a fancy DSLR, or simply using your phone, there is no wrong or right way to put together your own Project 365.

Basically a photo a day for project 365 and a photo a week for project 52. You can capture it however you want, post it however you want (or not at all)…or scrap it! I personally post them on Instagram with my personal hashtag, as well as scrap them.

To help you on your way (and to keep going) GingerScraps has a challenge area just for this, as well as a section in the store dedicated to the products you can use on your layouts. Today we are going to showcase a few of those items.
