Fresh Baked: September 19, 2014

Oh. My. Goodness! Today is going to be a CRAZY newsletter day! It’s Gingerscraps’ birthday, we have a new designer joining the team, and SO MANY goodies are being released!

Before we get to the goodies, you know that I have to show off a few layout using this month’s buffet and the newest monthly mix, Nostalgic Summer.

Fresh Baked: October 04, 2013

Hello, and good morning lovely Gingerscrappers! It’s time for that time of the week! Fresh baked goodies! The designers seem to have Halloween and spooking on the brain, and it shows in the kits. Some are spooky, some are cute. They’re all wonderful though!

GingerScraps has a  Facebook Group. This is an Open group anyone can join to share your GingerScraps Layouts, inspirational stories, scrapping funnies, questions, ISOs or anything else you’d like to share! This group gives you the chance to catch things you may have missed about GingerScraps happenings, such as sale announcements, new freebies, chats, new releases and more.

Remember this is a GingerScraps group, so please no other store product promotions.

Before I show off the amazing designs, it’s time to showcase a few great layouts, using the new Designer’s Choice buffet and All Treats, Not Tricks, the new monthly mix.

Created by chigirl. What captured my eye was the gorgeous blue in the glass! So gorgeous! The buffet colors play so beautifully with it!

Created by sladd79054. Mmm. Nice coffee! It’s always in season!

Created by Lisa. So stinking cute! The yarn ties on the side just work perfectly!

Remember, when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great grab bag! This month’s was created by Created by Jill Designs, Chere Kaye Designs, Kathy Winters Designs, Craft-tastrophic Designs, and Blue Heart Scraps.

Fresh Baked: New Buffet and iDSD!

Oh, hello November. Wow. October has come, she has gone. The festivals have all ended, and now we’re looking forward to, at least in the States, for Thanksgiving. Those not are starting their countdown to their winter holidays.

Or… you could be going iDSD!! DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY!! There are lots of things planned at Gingerscraps, and it’s going to be SO much fun!

The sale has been extended to the 9th, so that those affected by Sandy are able to get their power back. Our thoughts and prayers are with the NE of the United States at this time, hoping for a fast recovery to a normalcy.

The theme this month is “Attitude of Gratitude”. The colors are amazing, but honestly, I have to say the theme is my favorite. This past week has reminded me, personally, of how much we have to be grateful for. We have a roof over our head, a working computer, and pictures upon pictures to scrap. Right now, I’m set for everything. I can take anything, as long as I have the love of family and friends. Do you agree?

It’s the first of the month, so that means the Gingerbread Man is running through, sticking things in the Bake Sale! You never know what you’ll find in there!

The goodies that the designers have put together are just AMAZING, and I’m so excited to show them to you!

Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day!!

Hi there!  Hope you are planning to have an amazing day today!  There is so much going on in digi-land for this scrapping holiday – you can certainly make a whole day of it!  :)  Of course we do hope you’ll spend some of your time with us in the GS forum.

We have 2 speed scraps scheduled for this evening – one with Connie Prince at 4pm EST and one with Marie H at 9pm EST.  Hope to see you there!!!  Remember to use those share buttons below and invite your friends to the fun!  :)

Have a fabulous Digital Scrapbooking Day!

DSD Weekend is upon us!

Are you ready for the excitement of this weekend?  I am beyond excited!

Jacque here – let me start with a little update.  We had a crazy storm the other day that dumped over a foot of snow on us (yes! in October) and knocked out power for tons of people.  Talk about a rude awakening – in the 15 years at this house – the power has gone out for no more than a couple hours at a time.  3 days with no heat was not something we were prepared for!  Thankfully – all is back to normal and we are all thawed out!  :)

The other update I want to provide you with is about the Daily Download for November.  It IS coming!!!  Things have been crazy with the behind the scenes preparations for DSD weekend but Ginger is working very hard to get it all set for y’all.  As soon as its ready to go for you – we’ll get it posted – I promise!  :)  So – to tide you over – I’d like to invite you over to my blog to check out my very first attempt at a freebie mini-kit for a blog train.  There are 2 templates there as well.  :)


Okay – so now onto the fun of this weekend:

One of the greatest parts of DSD is the amount of Grab Bags you can get at an amazing price!  Trust me – the GingerScrap Ladies have put together some goodies you don’t want to miss out on!  Plus the WHOLE STORE IS ON SALE!!!!  Click on the picture to hop right over and get to shopping!  :)

The other part of DSD that I love (and hopefully you do too) is all the scrapping excitement!  We have put together some amazing reasons to scrap as much as you can this weekend:

This must be it – right?

NOPE!  Today is also the first Friday of the month so that means we get to Scrap n’ Chat with Cari too!

So… to recap – let’s get together with Ginger at 4pm EST to kick things all off, then we’ll chat with Cari at 9pm EST, and then we’ll chat with Jen at 10pm EST.   Plus all day long you can shop the great deals and go ahead and get started on the challenges.

ARE YOU READY?????  See you in the forum!  :)  Oh yeah – would you do me a favor?  Click on one of those share buttons by my name tag and tell your friends about the fun!  Thanks!  :)

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!”

Take a look at some of her Delicious Goodies!!






And guess who is sticking around GingerScraps…. Sugar Pie Scraps!! And not only is she a permanent GingerBread Lady, she is also going Exclusive! Whoot!



And Kat has decided to make GingerScraps her exclusive home too!! Wooohooo!
