Let’s Celebrate… Winter

Good morning scrappers!! Here on this side of the world we are in the full swing of winter. That being said, it really hasn’t been very winter-y here in the south. Not a stitch of snow in sight. That doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy some wonderful winter digital scrapbooking! Today we are going to take a look in the store at some great products to get those winter wonderland photos scrapped. Like past seasons the store has it’s own section for it.  Here are just a few items to get those winter layouts scrapped. (All images linked to the store)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Scrapping!!

Creative Style: White Space

GS_blog_CreativeStyle_Header

Good morning Scrappers! For those who celebrated Thanksgiving, have you recovered? Are you all ready for what comes next?!You know what…It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Next month for the inspiration side of the blog, we are going to be doing all things Christmas! Fonts, apps, supplies and more. I cannot wait!

Today though, we are going to be looking at the creative style of things. Scrapping white space layouts. I will go ahead and tell you that this is not my forte. I am all about messy, clustery, and filling up my pages. I appreciate what white space layouts are though & love to see them in the galleries. I am in awe of beautifully done white space layouts.

So, what is white space?

White space on scrapbook pages is not always white. It can be any color –it can even be patterned paper. The term white space refers to an area devoid of photos, embellishments, journaling, and title.

White space provides a resting point for the eye and breathing room for the viewer taking in your photos and journaling. White space has a shape that can be active or passive – Get it Scrapped 

 

Here are some beautiful examples of white space scrapping:

 

 

 

 

 


 

All these great layouts are linked to their counterpart in the gallery. Make sure you run over & leave them some love. As you can see, white space layouts are not layouts that are lacking!! They all have used their elements and paper to draw your eye to the photo. After all, this is about passing down memories. You can have patterned papers, fun paints, layered papers, and cute elements all on your page!

White space layouts stand out in the galleries against the big photos, layers and layers of papers, and lots of elements. Not to say one is better than the other! We are all different and we all scrap different. This is jut one of those ways. If you think that white space layouts is something you want to try, you know that GingerScraps has the supplies you need. Of course you can make a whitespace layout with any digital scrapbooking kit. Here are a few examples though of items in the store geared a little more to it.

Wow! Who knew there was so many great Thanksgiving goodies in the store. There are many more where those came from. I tried to stick strictly with Thanksgiving themes. That being said, there are hundreds more kits, alphas, elements, and templates in the store that you can use to scrap your Thanksgiving photos. Don’t let a theme or color scheme hold you back! The images above are linked to their store counterpart. Make sure you enjoy your Thanksgiving, take lots of photos, and make sure to scrap them!

Be Pinspired | Thanksgiving Crafts

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

It is getting that time of the year, here in the states. Let us not pretend that as a whole, we tend to skip over Thanksgiving. We are going to celebrate it for all that it is worth! Being thankful, getting together, taking photos, eating food, crafting, turkeys, history, and more!

Today we are going to take a look around pinterest and see what fun crafts we can find that we can put our digital scrapbooking twist on! We have such great designs and goodies at our fingertips. Sometimes all it takes to get a craft going is a little nudge in the right direction and some printed digital scrapbooking goodies. I did the looking around for you! (images liked to their pin).

 

You don't even have to get the glue out for this one! Take a look in all your latest kits. Most all of them come with buttons in them. Pull those buttons out, get to placing in photo shop (with some shadows!), save & print! Even your digital version would look great framed!

I am such a sucker for artwork done with sweet little hand & feet print. This is real simple! Find some of your favorite digital scrapbooking paper, print & glue. Think of what pretty feathers those papers will make!

Instead of pain, think little elements! Buttons & doodads that are usually always in your digital scrapbooking its. Pull those lovelies out & get to placing. I've seen this done digitally. It is stunning!

This is so cute! I really like that they used all those pretty patterned papers. Just think of all of the digital ones you have tucked away in your stash! You could print & have your turkey looking snazzy for Thanksgiving!

GingerBread Girl Inspiration: Atusia

It is that time again scrappers! The time we take just a moment out of our day to get some inspiration from one of our lovely CT members. Otherwise known as a GingerBread Girl. Today, we are going to take a look at the talented Atusia. Or Beata. 🙂

Ever lacking in some digital scrapbooking mojo, look no further! Beata really knows how to use a kit! Her layouts are beautifully clusters and have that whimsical look to them. I couldn’t scrap like that if I tried..she does it masterfully!
