Let’s Celebrate – Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is next week here in the States; and was last month in Canada. I don’t know about you, I never scrap my photos right after I take them. I usually sit on them for a while. With that in mind, I am stopping by today to show you some great digital scrapbooking supplies for scrapping your Thanksgivings. Be it next week, last month, or years ago! (If Thanksgiving isn’t something you would scrap, but you would like to scrap things you are thankful about, check out THIS POST.) I am going to just jump right into show you the great items. Of course if you are looking for something else besides what is here on the blog today, GingerScraps has a section dedicated to all things Thanksgiving!  All of the images below are linked.

This wonderful Page Kit was made as part of my Count Your Blessings Collection. This fun collection is perfect for all your Thanksgiving digital scrapbooking needs and so much more!

 

 

Thanksgiving is here, and it’s time to gather ’round the dinner table for a turkey feast! This WE GATHER TOGETHER Collection is full of rich colors and traditional Thanksgiving-themed elements and papers to scrap your family memories.

Let’s Celebrate Veterans Day!

Today is Veteran’s Day here in the states. What is Veteran’s Day?

In the USA it is observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans; that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.

Veterans deserved to be celebrated!! Not just celebrated, but scrapped! Here at GingerScraps there is a great amount of digital scrapbooking supplies to scrap the Military folks in your life. There is an entire section dedicated to all things military.  With that in mind, I am going to show you some great items from our store that will help you scrap those Veterans in your life! (images are linked to their counterpart in the store.)

 

 

 

Welcome Home Soldier is an amazing collection. This collection is great for photos of your Soldier coming home, 4th of July celebrations, or anything Military or U.S.A themed! This collection can also work for other things as well! Packed full of so many gorgeous papers, elements and more! This collection will not disappoint!

 

You don’t have to be in the military to know what they do for us. You don’t have to have family in the military to know they protect our way of life. Celebrate American heroes with this fantastic kit that includes all five branches of the US military (Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines and Air Force)! It’s also perfect for any kind of all-American fun, patriotic events and so much more! All branches contain both boy and girl characters. The color palette includes red, yellow, greens, blues, browns and white.

 

Few things are more important then the brave men and women that defend and protect our great nation. This collab is perfect to preserve all the memories of Our Troops.

 

Celebrate all your American Heroes with this super versatile, military-themed digital scrapbooking collection from Trixie Scraps Designs. Whether you have Army, Air Force, Marine or Navy photos to scrapbook, American Heroes has got it covered! There’s also plenty of red, white and blue, making this kit perfect for Memorial Day, Independence Day, and other patriotic pages, too.

 

People of the Armed Forces are simply the best, they serve their country with pride. They are brave, loyal, honorable and strong. They make us proud in every way, they are our heroes!

 

Most of these items shown to day lean towards the American side of the military. I think there is plenty though to scrap the other military members of the family (or yourself!) from other parts of the world. If you don’t find what you are looking for in today’s post, make sure to check out that section mentioned earlier in the post. There is more where this came from!

I would like to close today’s blog post with a “thank you!” Thank you to our active members of the military and our veterans! We know that our way of life is thanks to your sacrifice! I am sure that some of our fellow scrappers here at GingerScraps are veterans. I know a lot of us have family that is serving or has served as well. Thank you all for your sacrifices as well.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Let’s Celebrate – Being Sick!

Well, let’s not actually celebrate it. Being sick stinks! I had the flu this past week. Man-oh-man! I am 34 years old and never had the flu before. I am usually a trooper when sick. Do all the mom things! No extra sleep! Take some pills and keep moving! Not with the flu. I was out of commission for days!! That did get me to thinking though. Sometimes even those yucky and sick moments need to be scrapped. Our designers here at GingerScraps has just what you need to scrap them too!

Little ones always seem to have boo-boos and owies. I wanted a kit that had child friendly colors, reflecting how the children’s hospitals work hard to make it as pleasant as possible for the children who have to be there.

 

Doctor Visit is a collaboration between Tracey Monette and Alissa Jones. Together we’ve created for you a great kit to cover everything from boo boo’s that Dr. Mom kisses and makes better to visits to the doctor or even the emergency room & hospital!

 

Angels Among Us is in honor of all the men and women, doctors and nurses, who help us (and our loved ones) each and every day. They are never given nearly as much credit as they are due. They are truly .. “angels among us”.

 

We all experience sick days from time to time. This kit is for layouts that capture your loved ones during these stressful times. Whether it be a simple cold, chicken pox, a broken bone or an ongoing condition.

 

 

This medical-themed kit is filled with everything you could need for all sorts of health projects. From injuries and emergencies to sickness and surgeries, this kit has you covered. It’s also perfect for celebrating the doctors, nurses and veterinarians in your life. And even better, it includes animal-themed elements as well! The color palette includes white, rose red, mustard yellow, blue, green, orange and tan.

 

Everyone at some point in time, has those not feeling great days, and this Under The Weather Kit is a super choice to scrap pages of a few of those moments. Whether it is an “oopsy” accident that can be cured with lots of hugs and kisses (and maybe an ice pack or band-aid), or something more serious that requires a trip to the emergency room or a hospital stay, this kit will have you covered.

 

NOTE: Check your stash because this was part of the February 2017 Daily Download

 

It is great for your sick little ones, whether it be a scrape on the knee or a lengthy stay at the hospital. It’s full of fun unique elements for just such occasions.

 

Been sick? Been hurt? Helped heal someone? Then this is the collection for you! DOCTOR ON CALL is for all of your medical photos – and if you’re like me, you totally have photos for this!

Well, that is about all my post flu self can handle. I am going to snuggle back up in bed. Happy Scrapping!

Let’s Celebrate – Halloween!

Good morning all! It is that time of year again. For those who celebrate, Halloween will be here before we know it. I bounce back-and-forth between Halloween and Christmas being my favorite holiday. Looking at my stash, you would think it was Halloween. I just have to have all of them! I keep telling myself, “You have plenty of Halloween goodies, La’Shawn!” Then…I buy more. I am excited to share with you all today the fun Halloween goodies we have here at GingerScraps. I should have posted this on Saturday. The weekend got away from me. So, we get to brighten our Monday with fun Halloween digital scrapbooking supplies.

Happy Halloween! Boo to you … and you, and you! Let’s celebrate Halloween with this “not-so-scary” collection, inspired by one of the special parties held at Magic Kingdom.

Halloween is all about tradition: dressing up, making jack-o-lanterns, and trick-or-treating. One of the most iconic images associated with Halloween is a black cat and Hallow Kitty pays tribute to this fantastic feline. This kit pairs the traditional black and orange color palette with olive, cream, and brown for a subdued seasonal feel. Warm, autumnal flowers and leaves pair nicely with thematic elements like cauldrons, pumpkins, a toad, a crescent moon, a broom, and the eponymous black cats themselves. Hallow Kitty plays nice with other favorite fall photos, making it more versatile than a lot of other Halloween kits. So give yourself a treat today and scrap a page with Hallow Kitty – no tricks needed!

Good morning GingerScrap’s scrappers! I don’t know about you, but here in the southern part of the States, it is starting to look a lot like Autumn! It is my favorite time of the year. From cooler weather, changing colors, holidays, and pumpkins. All these things make this season the best! We should of course scrap it, right? Never fear.

Fall Fun – Kit by Connie Prince.

 

 

Nothing shouts autumn more than the myriad of colorful leaves that coat the ground each fall. I love the crack and crackle of them as I walk along in the parks and my yard.

Let’s Celebrate Grandparents!

Tomorrow is Grandparent’s Day here in the state. Let’s be honest though…they deserve celebrating more than just the one day! I can personally say that a lot of who I am today is thanks to the amazing grandmother I had in my life. She is one of my most favorite things to scrap. Which got me to thinking. With that holiday just around the corner, we should showcase some of the great items we have in the store here at GingerScraps to do just that…celebrate our grandparents.

There isn’t a specific section dedicated to just this in the store. However, there is a section for family inspired digital scrapbooking items. That is where I found most of these items. You can view that section HERE if you like. All the images below are linked to their counterpart in the store.

Here are some items that are specifically for grandparents:

 

 

 

Here are a few more items that are not totally for grandparents. However they all are wonderful for scrapping the Grands in our lives (and more!):

 

 

 

 

 

A lot of these items above are geared toward women and Grandmothers. Don’t get me wrong. I am surrounded by males in my life; and they get scrapped surrounded by the typical female colors often! That being said, here are a few items geared towards the men and Grandpa’s!

 

 

 

 

Let’s Celebrate Spring!

Fall is just around the corner where I live. Of course it will likely stay hot and humid until October or November. Such is the life of the Southern parts of the States. That being said, it is heading into Spring for you guys in the Southern Hemisphere. With that in mind we are going to take a look at a lot of the pretty and Spring-tastic things we have in the store to scrap those layouts.

If you are not familiar with our Let’s Celebrate posts, here is a little information about them. Get ready to be blown away with a lot of great items from the store. These posts are usually image heavy. (I have a hard time narrowing down the items to a reasonable amount for a blog post! They are all just too great). Also all images are linked to their counterpart in the store. GingerScraps has so many great designers; and a lot of them have been here for years. Therefore we have so many great items spanning pages and pages. If you don’t see something you like in today’s post, you can always check out the store for more. In fact there is a section just for Spring related items.
