GS_blog_LetsCelebrate_Header
Happy Monday everyone! Did this Monday bring your school age kiddos going back to school? Are you going back to school? Are you a teacher who is getting ready for back to school? Well, it is that time of the year! My son starts back on Wednesday. I am having a bit of a hard time wrapping my mind around the summer being over and him being in the 2nd grade. sigh. That being said, you know as us scrappy mom’s we are going to have some adorable 1st day of school photos to scrap! Not to mention the school supply/clothes shopping, meeting the teachers, and more.

I am here today to make the back-to-school digital scrapbooking shopping a little easier for you!

Did you know that GingerScraps has a category just for those back to school digital scrabooking supplies? Well it does! It is one of the largest theme categories the store has. I went though that category for you and just picked out a few digital scrapbooking supplies to show you. It is exactly that…just a few of all the great items you can get in the store. All the images are linked to their store counterpart. Let’s get started!

*Lost At Sea* Week Three

Good morning scrappers! It is that time of week where we take a look at the past week’s Survivor layouts. We just finished week 3!

So what was Week 3’s challenge?

While you wait to see if your message in a bottle finds its way to a willing savior, you have continued to put on your pirate disguise each day. You are blending in quite well, and actually learning some very interesting things about these pirates.

One buccaneer told you that the pirate captain has a treasure hidden on his ship, it is said to be a huge booty of doubloons and rare gems! He wants to get a crew together to steal the treasure. This sounds like risky business to you, the last thing you need is to get wrapped up in some crime with a band of pirates! You wish the buccaneer luck and move along.

As you walk away you begin to think about your own life, and your treasures. If you were to make a treasure chest, what prized possessions would you stowaway?

Week 3 – {Booty} *The Challenge*
This layout is all about your own “booty”. If you were to put your most prized possessions in a treasure chest, what would they be?


Here are just a few of the amazing layouts you guys scrapped! (images are linked to the gallery)

What did I tell you? Great layouts right? All so different but all stand outs in their own way. Week 4’s challenge isn’t posted yet. make sure you keep an eye on out on the forum for it to be posted. When you get those layouts scrapped, upload them to week 4’s gallery. We will be back later in the week to shout out to some of the stand outs! Have fun!

Creative Style | Disney Inspired

Hello scrappers! Today we are going to talk about a creative style. Well, not so much a creative style as a creative theme. Disney was such a huge part of my childhood. I was really limited on what I could watch. Disney fell into one of the things I could. To this day I can start quoting and singing (usually at the top of my lungs) Aladdin, The little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and the Lion King. Those were the movies from my childhood. I am in my 30s and still love them and love most all the newer movies too.

That being said, I got into digital scrapbooking for other reasons. I have found out in the past 6-7 years though that a lot of you guys got into it (and still are into) scrapping because of Disney. There are a lot of copyrite issues when it comes to Disney. So, I am here to show you just a little (and it is actually quite a lot!) of the Disney inspired products that is in the GingerScraps store. There are so many more items that I am not going to show you. You can find these, and the rest, by searching for them. Get ready to be blown away! (all images linked to the store).

If you don’t have a cup of coffee or a glass of water, I suggest you grab yourself one before you start this newsletter. It’s a long one but it’s so chocked full of amazing goodies that it will be so worth it!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

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

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

Created by JillW. I really love the yellow background with all of the white space. I also love the picture done in black and white. So perfect.
