4th of July & Canada Day


Good Monday morning! For those in the states, did you have have a good Independence Day? Canadians, did you have a good Canada Day?! I hope you did and I hope you took lots of photos. I am here today to help take the chore of looking for kits for said photos. We are going to take a look at some of the great digital scrapbooking supplies in the store to scrap those 4th of July and Canada Day photos!

Just like the holiday’s before, we have an entire section dedicated to patriotic digital scrapbooking supplies. If you already have the ones I am about to showcase in your stash or just want something else, make sure to check there. Here are just a few items to get your patriotic layouts scrapped. (all images linked).





Some great designs, right? We would love to see what you are scrapping with our patriotic designs. Make sure you upload your layouts to the gallery. There is a challenge that goes perfectly with these patriotic goodies. There are a lot more patriotic items in July’s Buffet. You can take those July Buffet layouts & take part in the Buffett challenge in the forum! There is also a color challenge this month that would work well with your patriotic layouts! So, get those holiday photos scrapped & links us up!


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).

I am telling you, there are so many more Disney inspired goods in the store. I had to trim down my list! This has me so excited. I say often that I need more princesses in my life. I am surrounded by little boys. I am going to have to find something to scrap with these lovely items!!
