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.



Focus On – Paints & Glitter

Who doesn’t need more glitter in their life? Nothing beats digital glitter either. There is no mess!! Yay! I am surrounded by little boys in my life. One son, three nephews, two best friends with boys of their own. Nothing but little boys. I joke around all the time that I need more Princesses and glitter in my life. I get that with my digital scrapbooking!

GingerScraps has a huge variety of all things paint and glitter. You can find them sprinkled throughout kits and collections. You can also find them separately. There is no one section in the store for these goodies. You can search for “paint” and “glitter“. I found the best selection were in the doodles and actions section of the store.

That being said, I did the searching for you. Guys, this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg for what is in store for paint and glitter. These are the ones that stuck out to me though. All of them below are linked up for you.

Out of This World is a collab brought to you by Blue Heart Scraps and Luv Ewe Designs! This collection is full of colorful papers and elements for scrapping about the people you love to the moon and back!


These beautiful artsy stamps were made as part of my Snap Happy Collection. This collection is perfect for scrapping any type of photos and memories and has a super watercolour artsy feel to it!

Add a little sparkle to your pages by using some glitter in Photoshop with this set of 4 Glitter Photoshop Styles


Seamless PS Styles that coordinate with any of ‘Mommin’ Ain’t Easy’ packs.

So pretty right? I use paint splatter and glitter on nearly every page I scrap. I like bright colors and patterns. I like putting them behind my photos. I feel it draws one’s eyes to the photo and grounds the layout. I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at all things paint and glittery today!

From The Archives | Vol. 9

Happy Saturday everyone! It has been since November since we took a trip back into the archives here at GingerScraps. I thought it a perfect time to take a look at some of the oldies…but goodies! Today we are going to look at digital scrapbooking kits in the store from around 2015. All images are linked. Enjoy!


Panda-Monium is an oriental style collection including some super cute Pandas and lots of Chinese-inspired goodies as well as non-themed elements. In beautiful pinks and greens, this collection is just in time to welcome spring, and is perfect to scrap your pictures at the China Pavilion in Epcot, a vacation to Asia, a visit to your local botanical gardens, a night out at your favorite Chinese restaurant, a visit to Chinatown, a recent adoption, and so much more!




Whether your desk is completely organized, is total chaos or falls somewhere in between, this is a unique kit to scrap office, work, desk and homework type photos. It is a great everyday kit as well, to add to your stash!



Sushi Time is a great themed kit, based on the love of Sushi! This kit is perfect for scrapping anything you want about sushi! However this kit would work well with other types of food or even non food related layouts! This kit is very unique and one you will surely love scrapping with!


This kit is very near and dear to my heart – because it’s the story of my life!


This kit is perfect to scrapbook of your vehicle-themed fun! It includes cars, trucks, a motorcycle, a moped / scooter, a go kart, a 4-wheeler, tons of themed elements, road signs and so much more! It’s also perfect for lots of other masculine layouts and projects. The very manly color palette includes black, gray, tan, brown, blues, greens, yellow and red.



I hope you enjoyed a look back at some fun items in the store. I am not exaggerating when I say this is only a tiny glimpse of what is in the store. Today we were only looking at kits as well. There are pages and pages of all kinds of goodies! Jump in and take a look yourself if these do not tickle your fancy. Happy Scrapping!

Creative Style | The Color Green


Hello scrappers. Today we are going to take a look at a creative style. Well, let me honest. It isn’t really a style so much as getting some inspiration from color.

There are many things that can make a layout stand out in the gallery. What grabs one person’s attention might not grab another’s. I could write multiple blog posts about what grabs mine. That being said, seeing a layout that has predominantly one color always grabs my attention.  Since we are edging up on St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to get some inspiration from the color green.

We are going to take a look at some pretty green images, some great digital scrapbooking layouts done up in green, and round it up with the latest green filled goodies from the store.

Now, here are some lovely images to get those creative juices flowing. Did you know there was a place you could get pretty nice stock photos for free? 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.) I use them on my personal blog. I thought I would share with you guys while we get some inspiration for scrapping with green.

Fantastic right? I find inspiration for layouts in all kinds of places. Looking at beautiful photos are one of them. Want a bit more inspiration? Here are some layouts that are predominantly green. You know, to help get those ideas flowing! (all images are linked to their counterpart in the gallery. Go leave some loving!)

Are these not some lovely layouts! I know part of that is the great designers we have here at GingerScraps. These layouts are beautifully scrapped though. I hope you found at least some inspiration from today’s post. I will leave you with some great designs to get those green filled layouts scrapped. As usual, all images are linked to their counterpart. We actually have an entire location in the store just for GREEN items.












If none of these are what you are looking for when it comes to scrapping green, make sure you check out the section dedicated to it. There are hundreds…literally hundreds of pages of choices. Have fun!


Focus On : Paper Packs

Hello Scrappers! Team member La’Shawn here with another edition of Focus On. That is where we take one thing, that isn’t a kit and focus on it. Our store has amazing designers that work so hard to bring us great digital scrapbooking supplies every week. Sometimes things get lost in the ever changing store. Some people don’t check the new releases every week. Some people are just starting and might not have seen some things from the past. That is where I come in. I am here to go back in the archives and bring you some great stuff.

This isn’t a from the archives post. We do have those! If you are looking for something that was in our store over a year ago, check HERE. This is where we just look at one thing. Today we are going to take a look at some great paper packs. Our designers are some of the best paper designers around! I am going to bombard you with some great examples and tell you how to find more.

There is an entire section dedicated to paper packs in the store. You can find that HERE. Paper packs are a great edition to any digital scrapbooking layout and stash. Sometimes you cannot find that one paper you need. Or it might be made to be an add-on to a collection. You can also mix and match!











This was only page 4 into the paper pack section. There are pages and pages of amazing paper packs in the store.  Show us what you have done with an add on or paper pack from the store!



Let’s Celebrate – Hanukkah!

Hanukkah! Last week we checked out all things Christmas. Merry Christmas Eve btw. However, this time of the year is also Hanukkah! Our store has some wonderful items to scrap those Hanukkah memories. Just last week, this post is image heavy. I am going to let the wonderful digital scrapbooking products do the talking. All images linked to the store.








Let’s Celebrate – Christmas!

CHRISTMAS!! It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!! For those of us who celebrate, we are in the full swing of the holiday! Is your tree up? Are your stocking hung with care? How about that shopping? Is it done; and what about…scrapping those memories?!  For me…yes, yes, done, and working on it. 🙂 I am also stopping by to absolutely overwhelm your senses with all things Christmas and digital scrapbooking. By the time I am done, you will either not want to see anything Christmas related; or be ready to scrap-scrap-scrap!

Since this will be a image heavy post, I am going to make the chatter short and sweet. All images are linked; and don’t forget we have a section just for Christmas in the store. You know…in case one of these 100 (joking) I am about to show you doesn’t strike your fancy.






















Whew. That isn’t even a quarter of the wonderful Christmas goodies in the store. Just some of the most resent. If what I showed you is not what you are looking for, make sure to check out the store. Merry Christmas everyone!

Focus On : Masks

Welcome to December! Of course it has been December for nearly two weeks. I missed last week’s blog post; and was unable to say welcome. 🙂 We are going to stray away from all things December today. No holiday talk! Today we are going to focus on one aspect of digital scrapbooking. More like focus on one of the great items you can use to scrap your digital scrapbooking pages.

Today we are going to Focus On….Masks. While looking around the gallery, I find that not many people use them. When they are used though, they really make a layout pop! So, what are masks?

In hands-on artistic works, a mask is a protective shield that keeps an area from being affected by an appplied medium.

For digital creations, that “shield” can end up being the very shape to which a medium is applied. What’s more that medium can be your photo. – via debbiehodge.com


I am no good at tutorials. That is why you always find me bring you great creative ideas and motivation. You should check out our Tutorial Tuesday posts for great how-to’s!….not written by me. lol. There are some great tuts in there on how to “clip”; which is what you do when using a mask.

Today though, we are going to take a look at what the store has to offer on masks! I love shopping. I even love digital window shopping. 🙂 I get to have the fun of looking around the store and bringing you some great GingerScraps digital scrapbooking supplies. Here are a few of those (all images linked to the store).










Be Pinspired – Christmas Advent Calendar

For those who celebrate, Christmas is right around the corner. I know that for here in the states, we have already been Christmastized since November 1st. That doesn’t mean (for me at least) that we cannot enjoy counting down until Christmas!

That is what we are going to talk about today. Christmas Advent Calendar. What is that?

An Advent calendar is a special calendar used to count or celebrate the days in anticipation of Christmas.

I am going to show you some great examples from Pinterest on making your own Advent calendar. Then I will follow up with some great Christmas goodies from the store. Digital scrapbooking doesn’t have to stay digital, you know! Print those items out and get to gluing!






Here are a few Christmas items from the store. Images are linked!
