Let’s Celebrate: St. Patrick’s Day

Hello scrappers! Next Friday is St. Patrick’s Day. So today we are going to take a look at some of the fun things in the store that will have us scrapping all things St. Patrick’s Day! I am sure most of us know what that holiday is. However for those who do not:

St Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated in countries with people of Irish decent.

Here at GingerScraps we have a section dedicated to this holiday. If what we showcase below is not what you are looking for, you probably can find it in that section.  We are going to showcase a number of digital scrapbooking supplies for your St. Patrick’s Day projects. We will follow it up with some fun layouts as well. All images are linked of course. 🙂

Let’s Celebrate | Snow!

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! I know there are plenty of you out there that are sick of it already. Coming to the end of January and you have seen enough of it. I however live in the southern parts of the states. We hardly see any. We are lucky to get a dusting once a year; and I LOVE snow! I thought it would be fun to showcase some great items from the store to get those snow-filled photos scrapped.

I also enjoyed looking at all things purple last week; and showing you some lovely photos to get those creative juices flowing as well. I thought I would show you some snow photos to do the same thing. 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.)

 

 

 

As well as those gorgeous photos, here are some lovely layouts to help you with some snow-tastic inspiration as well!

 

 

 

As always I will leave you with some great products from the store. There is an entire section dedicated to all things winter. Here are just a few of my favorites.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Creative Style | Purple

GS_blog_CreativeStyle_Header

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. There really is no reason that I picked this color, except that I like it. Let us get some inspiration from the color purple.

We are going to take a look at some pretty purple images, some great digital scrapbooking layouts done up in purple, and round it up with the latest purple filled goodies from the store. If those do not do it for you, make sure you check out January’s Buffet. A lot of those have purple all through them!

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 purple.

 

 

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 purple. You know, to help get those ideas flowing! (all images are linked to their counterpart in the store. 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 purple filled layouts scrapped. As usual, all images are linked to their counterpart. We actually have an entire location in the store just for purple items.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Creative Style | Project 52/365

Happy 2017 everyone! I got a bit overwhelmed at the start of the year; and I failed to bring you your weekly inspiration. Even though we are two weeks into 2017, it isn’t too late to start on our photo projects. I am talking about Project 365 and Project 52. What are those? According to Google

Simply put, Project 365 is committing to taking one photo a day for a year. Whether you’re using a fancy DSLR, or simply using your phone, there is no wrong or right way to put together your own Project 365.

Basically a photo a day for project 365 and a photo a week for project 52. You can capture it however you want, post it however you want (or not at all)…or scrap it! I personally post them on Instagram with my personal hashtag, as well as scrap them.

To help you on your way (and to keep going) GingerScraps has a challenge area just for this, as well as a section in the store dedicated to the products you can use on your layouts. Today we are going to showcase a few of those items.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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).

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Celebrate – Halloween 2016

Good morning all! It is that time of year again. For those who celebrate, Halloween will be here before we know it. I bounce back-and-forth between Halloween and Christmas being my favorite holiday. Looking at my stash, you would think it was Halloween. I just have to have all of them! I keep telling myself, “You have plenty of Halloween goodies, La’Shawn!” Then…I buy more. I am excited to share with you all today the fun Halloween goodies we have here at GingerScraps. I should have posted this on Saturday. The weekend got away from me. So, we get to brighten our Monday with fun Halloween digital scrapbooking supplies.

In case you didn’t know, or that you are new here at GingerScraps. You can find anything you look for by searching in the store. You can also find a lot of holiday goodies in the HOLIDAY section. Of course there is one just for all things spooky and HALLOWEEN! I am going to try not to overload your visual senses too much…I did warn you though it was one of my favorites. (all images linked)

GingerBread Girl Inspiration | jencrook

Happy Scrappy Saturday everyone!! I am stopping by this morning to help get those creative juices flowing for you. Nothing beats Saturday scrapping, right?! This morning I am bringing you a look into one of the GingerBread Girl’s gallery. GingerScraps has a talented group of ladies taking those lovely designs and turning them into beautiful digital scrapbooking layouts. Today we are going to showcase Jen’s Gallery. 

Let’s get started. I found so much inspiration looking through Jens gallery. As a scrapper who cannot scrap a page with clusters, I first noticed her great clustering! Then my eyes were drawn to her beautiful use of paper. She doesn’t shy away from the patterns and knows just how to use them. Every page has a great photo and she really rocks the blended photo. Here are 5 examples that grabbed my attention.

 

 

 

 

Great inspiration, right? Make sure to look around the gallery yourself if you need a little bit of help getting that mojo going. Not only are there great creative team member’s layouts, your fellow scrappers are rocking the scrappy goodness too! Don’t forget to upload your layouts in the gallery as well.

Have a great weekend everyone!
