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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the Archives Vol. 8

We are almost to the end of 2016; and already on the 8th edition of from the Archives. This year has flown by!

From the Archives is one of my favorite posts to write here at GingerScraps. I have been an enabler of digital scrapbooking with my friends from the start of it for me. I enjoy helping people find new digital scrapbooking supplies.

What archives? Well, we are going to show you some digital scrapbooking supplies that are in the store that are at least a year old. Usually older than that.  Some of us may be new to digital scrapbooking or new to GingerScraps. Some people don’t check the store every week. Basically, things can and do get lost in the weekly shuffle of the store. With that in mind, we are going to go back and look at some great products. Our hope is that you find some great things you might have been looking for; or find something that you didn’t know you needed but totally do now that you see it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


You  might have noticed all these oldies but goodies have similarity about them. The color! This From the Archives, I chose to go back to November 2015’s Buffet. Taking a look at what hitting the store a year ago.  Don’t forget about November 2016’s Buffet! These two compliment each other well.

Scrapping with Pumpkins

Are you in full scrapping mode today?! Today is the official day of DSD. I have been scrapping like mad. Do you know what October also brings with it? All things pumpkins! That is what we are going to talk about today. Scrapping with Pumpkins.

I was looking around on Pinterest and found some really cool ideas on inputting pumpkins in your digital scrapbooking layouts. Here are just a few of them that I love. (Images are linked to source.)

Scrapping with Pumpkins

You will be hard pressed to find any digital scrapbooking kit without at least one button in it. Take a look through your stash. FInd all those orange, yellowish, brown, and green buttons. How cool would this be on a digital scrapbooking layout?

 

I am absolutely going to do this on one of my digital scrapbooking layouts for my sister's book. This is such a cute idea. You can find a lot of pumpkin templates out there (see below) to accomplish this. You can also cut your photos whatever shape you want and just place them on your pumpkin paper with the right shadow work to look like they are cut out.

Another great example of a pumpkin shaped scrapping. Just cut out your papers/ photos the size you want and arrange them to look like a pumpkin!

From the Archives Vol. 4 – Alphas

I cannot believe we are already at Volume 4 of looking back in our Archives. Have you found anything you liked yet or added to your collection? I hope that you have.

The reason we are doing this is because our designers have great kits and collections from years ago! Some of us may be new to digital scrapbooking or new to GingerScraps. Some people don’t check the store every week. Basically, things can and do get lost in the weekly shuffle of the store.

With that in mind, we are going to go back and look at some great products. Our hope is that you find some great things you might have been looking for; or find something that you didn’t know you needed but totally do now that you see it!

Like I mentioned in last month’s archive post, we are going to pull away from just looking at kits this month. There is so much more to be had in the store!! Today we are going to look back at some of the great Alphas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Guys, this is just a tiny look at what GingerScraps has to offer in the Alpha category. There are hundreds more where those came from!

We would love to see what you scrapped with these or any of our products. Make sure you upload those layouts to the gallery! If you have used any of these great finds from the past, link us up here!

Lyrical Scrap – P!nk – Just Like Fire

I have not seen “Alice Through the Looking Glass” yet. I have heard this song though and I love it! I had a layout pop in my mind when I heard this song. I thought, it would be a great song to showcase on this month’s lyrical scrap.

Lyrical scrapping. What is that?! We get inspiration for layouts and more in just about everything in life. One of the main things I get inspiration from is music. I can promise you that our designers do as well! We are going to take a song and see what kind of inspiration we can come up with from it.

Take a look at this month’s lyrical inspiration. The video is below and here are the lyrics themselves.

What kind of digital scrapbooking inspiration can be had from this song? Oh…so much! You could go Disney, Alice in Wonderland, being an individual, owning who you are, being a little mad, being the boss, fire, and so so so much more.

Close your eyes, listen to the song again. What do you see scrapping? I cannot wait to get my layout scrapped. In the mean time, here are some great items that were inspired (to me) by this song.

Let’s Celebrate – Patriotism

With tomorrow being Independence Day here in the states and this past Friday being Canada Day, I thought a look at all things patriotic would be a great way to get our day started today. With that being said, let us celebrate all things patriotism.

Patriotism is an emotional attachment to a nation which an individual recognizes as their homeland. This attachment, also known as national feeling or national pride, can be viewed in terms of different features relating to one’s own nation, including ethnic, cultural, political or historical aspects.

Here at GingerScraps, we have a section dedicated to all things Patriotic. That way if I don’t show you something that strikes your fancy, you can always take a look over there. I am here to do finding for you today though. All images are linked to the store…lets get started!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did I overload you with all things patriotic? I hope so! Happy Independence Day to you all in the states; and Happy Canada Day (belatedly) to our friends in the north.

Creative Stlye – Waves

Happy Scrappy Saturday folks! Team member La’Shawn here to talk about a creative style. I thought it would be fun to talk about waves. “How is that a style?”, you ask? Well, it isn’t really a style per se. It is just another way to add a fun flair to your water, beach, swimming and summer layouts. What am I talking about when I say “waves”? Let me show you a few examples of layouts using waves.

Lost at Sea Week 2 by gethane


As you can see, there are a variety of ways you can utilize waves in your layouts. You can use background papers with waves, you can cut out paper in waves shapes, and you can use wave items already in a kit. Those images are linked to their counterpart in the gallery.

Here is some items from our store to help get your wave layouts started.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now…lets go catch some waves…or scrap ’em. 🙂

From The Archives Vol. 3

I cannot believe we are already at Volume 3 of looking back in our Archives. Have you found anything you liked yet or added to your collection? I hope that you have.

The reason we are doing this is because our designers have great kits and collections from years ago! Some of us may be new to digital scrapbooking or new to GingerScraps. Some people don’t check the store every week. Basically, things can and do get lost in the weekly shuffle of the store.

With that in mind, we are going to go back and look at some great products. Our hope is that you find some great things you might have been looking for; or find something that you didn’t know you needed but totally do now that you see it! If you want more, you can always check out what was showcased in Volume 1 and Volume 2.

This month’s look back I am not going to do just five items. We are going to take a look at 10! All images are linked to the store. We will be looking back to 2012 and 2013. Enjoy!

I so enjoy LuvEwe designs. This is one of her oldest kits in the store. She always includes lots of word art. I like it!

 

This is the oldest Ponytail Designs kit in the store. Take a look at the jam packed kit!! I never let a good boy kit not join my collection…just like this one!

 

Not one of her oldest kits, for sure. Connie has been giving us great kits for a while now. This is one of the oldest in her GingerScraps’ store. Also in my scrap stash….just look at all those kitties!

 

What scraptastic lady doesn’t need this GignerBread Ladies collab?!

 

What great dad colors! I really like the guy and the crown. Great for any kind of photos, but especially the Dad ones!

 

I know we are in the middle of summer (in the states) and not really thinking back to school…just wait…it will be here in a blink! Here is one of the older Monthly Mixes. Love those owls!

 

What a pretty kit with the slightest bit of shabby feel to it. This is the oldest Inspired Designs kit in the store. Oldie but goody!

 

i am not going to lie…this is my all time favorite Trixie Scrap’s kit. The colors, the theme, the elements and the papers. I have used this kit over-and-over. I just thought others should see it as well!

 

Pretty in Green has been with us for a while! This is one of her older kits that has not retired. It is such a pretty kit as well. I just want to take that lion home with me!

 

Just like Pretty in Green, Colie’s Corner has been not only with GingerScraps for a long while, but designing for a long while. You might not find her releasing every week at the moment, you can find some fantastic and timeless kits in the Archives!


What did you think? Going to add any to your stash or wishlist? I know I added quite a few all of them to my wish list. 🙂 I think next time around we are going to take a step away from the digital scrapbooking kits and look at something else from the archive. Do you have any suggestions? What would you like showcased from the archives?

We would love to see what you scrapped with these or any of our products. Make sure you upload those layouts to the gallery! If you have used any of these great finds from the past, link us up here!
