Fresh Baked: December 01, 2013

HAPPY DECEMBER!! We’re at the last few newsletters for 2013! The year is nearly over! That doesn’t mean the fun is going to end! Whether you’re doing December Daily, a layout a day, or what, you’ll find this month full of kits perfect for whatever you’re doing!

This month, there’s no official theme to the buffet. There’s a unifying color palette, and the kits play together beautifully. Enjoy the December 2013 {Designer’s Choice} buffet series this month!

We have NEW Buffet options!! You asked for it, and we listened! The GS Buffet will now included FULL size kits!! In addition to the mix and match packs, you can now also find full size kits in the buffet section. The price point has been adjusted accordingly. Everything in the Buffet will always be $4.00 and under. Every month the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month). That means Full kits for $2 and a ton of mix and match packs all for $1!! You will not want to miss this!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

Weekly Wrap-up: It’s a new month!

I do so love it when the new month starts on a Friday- it’s like super bonus with the buffet and new releases and new challenges and and and..!

Since our newsletter just delivered you the royal treatment, I want to quick go over some things coming up. The end of the month can be so drab and quiet with all the finishing of challenges and some of us still  recovering from iNSD, plus Summer is in full affect most places and I sure hope that means everyone is outside  making memories!

First up, GingerScraps Book Club!

Our read for the month of June is The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks!  I personally have never read a Nicholas Sparks book, but I hear they are fantastic so I can’t wait to start this one as my first! JoyLynn is also looking for some input, she wants to know what you want to see every month in the book club, she’s open to any suggestions!

Next, make sure to check out the Bake Sale happening RIGHT NOW!

You only have until June 5th to grab as much as your can for just $1 and let me tell you, there are some real surprises in this months bake sale! Do NOT miss this!

Did you know there is a brand-spanking-new challenge this month hosted by Jenn of Joyful Heart Designs? It’s a brush challenge! For the first month, she chose a wicked cool bird brush set. Brushes can be used for anything!  I know Jenn can’t wait to see what you all come up with, and neither can I!

Guess what? Z Pink Boudoir Designs is having a CT call! Join the Zeee-speration!

Guess what else?! JenC Designs is having one too! JenC is looking for Guest CTs for the summer months – but there’s a twist! More than one way to enter and more than one way to grab some of her super cute goodies!

Good luck to BOTH designers on their calls!

Now, to wrap-up the wrap-up (HA!), with the sunny days and the weather heating up, who’s ready for their summer do’s? Renee (MnMommy2) got everyone talking about hair (cuts, styles, color)! Which of course, got me thinking-  I need a hair cut myself! Except, I’m one of those that loves the cut for a few days then immediately misses my long hair so any drastic cuts are out of my future- but what about all of you? Who is getting a new do for summer, and more importantly will you scrap the before and after? 😉



Fresh Baked: May 01, 2012

It’s May 1st. Really. I promise. I’m telling you the truth. Can you believe it? What happened to April? We’re one-fifth of the way through twenty-twelve already. What sort of insanity is that?

There’s a lot of information and goodies to share with you today! I’m excited about everything. SO much is going to be happening! The Gingerbread Ladies outdid themselves, I’m telling you!

The first bit of news? Do you know what next weekend? It’s NSD!! National Scrapbooking Day is something we digital scrapbookers look forward to for so long. Or is that just me? Well, Gingerscraps has some amazing things planned for it!


The designers are hosting everything, and they’re pulling out all the stops!


70% off sale on Thursday and 50% Friday through Sunday. Some restrictions apply.


Every other hour, a speed scrap or chat will be going on. That means everyone will have a chance to join in on something!


Persnickety Prints has the best printing services around, and they’re getting into the swing of things for NSD, too, with amazing sales. I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll take advantage of this deal!!


The bake sale is going on now! Go! You have until the 5th of May to take advantage of some amazing $1 deals!! You never know what you’ll find on sale.

Also, just a quick note: the Bake Sale and May Buffet items are not going to be included in the 70% and 50% off sales for NSD.


Time for a new buffet. April Showers bring May Flowers, usually, but instead, at Gingerscraps, May isn’t about the flowers. No, we’re all about the babies. This buffet is perfect for all those baby-related layouts. There are also items related to adoption, so it’s perfect for all of those layouts, as well. May is also synonymous with Mother’s Day. Flowers, cards, and love. These kit pieces speak of all of that. Even the pet mommas need some extra loving this time of year. Why not share that with someone you love?


The Gingerscraps designers really out-did themselves this month with some great mini kits, and they all coordinate so perfectly. There’s something perfect there for everyone!


The Gingerscraps CT had a blast playing with the kits. The layouts are just spectacular.

Remember, when you spend $10 at the store, you get an amazing grab bag. May’s was created by the talented Pretty in Green.


Some big news concerning our April Guest, Find Your Bliss Designs. She’s staying! It’s been wonderful seeing her designs in the store, and I’m happy that she has decided to make Gingerscraps a more permanent home!

Now, it’s time to introduce May’s Guest Designer. You might have seen some of her collab designs in the store with other designers. We’re so excited to announce that our guest designer is

Jen C. Designs


We asked Jen for a little bio, and this is what she told us:

Hi all! My name is Jen. I live in Belfast in the UK. I’ve been married for almost 6 years and we have two beautiful children – Luke and Charlotte. When not digi designing, I work as a web marketer and graphic designer for two local companies. Oh – and of course, playing with my kids! I stumbled into digi scrapping 2 years ago when I was on maternity leave and designing blogs for friends. I started on my first creative team shortly after and designing soon after that! I absolutely love it! I’m inspired by everything from interior decorating magazines to song lyrics, a photo of my kids to suggestions from my fans and creative team. If you ever have a suggestion for a kit or template idea, just let me know!

I can’t wait to get to know her better! And to see her designs, of course!

Here are a few that are in her store right now:

Well, I guess that’s it. Oh, I’m just kidding, there’s some more. The Daily Download! April’s was created by Sugar Kissed Designs, and it’s now available in the store!


May’s Daily Download was created by Blue Heart Scraps. It’s just adorable, and perfect for the upcoming summer. Day 01 is available for download now on the blog! Remember to pick up each piece every day!


I told you there was quite a bit, but I think the read was worth it. Thanks for reading and helping to make Gingerscraps what it is.

Weekly Wrap Up

What does a busted phone and a sad Snickerdoodle have in common? Not much, actually. Just a little jealousy on my part that my husband got a new phone. He got an HTC Inspire. BIG upgrade from a basic texting dumphone (Samsung Impression). I had to resist adding the Gingerscraps app to it.

What? You didn’t know that Gingerscraps has an Android app? Well, they do!! They have one for the iPhone (or other such devices) and for Windows 7 phones!

Sweet, right? Reminds me that I need to get onto someone about updating this ad! Windows 7 is available!

Other news? What? Really? You still want to hear me?

Oh geeze! I’m turning into Shannon! *hides*

On the Facebook page, Jacque wonders what everyone did on Monday. Personally, I was in bed. Sinuses. Blech! Anyone else abhor them?

On the forum, Jen, of Jen Yurko Designs, asked which app to use: Forum Runner or Tapatalk for her Droid. As a future owner of an Android (I’m getting the same one as my husband Open-mouthed smile). Looks like BOTH are getting good reviews. For Windows users: I suggest Board Express.

Speaking of Android apps, I posted, looking for the BEST apps for Android. I’m an app girl. I like to make everything all me and personal. I can do that with apps!!

Now, it’s March. Yeah, it’s March already. Where did February go?

How did you do with the challenges? Yeah, I didn’t do too well. Goal for March for me personally is to do at least four of them!!

One I’m definitely trying is the Technique Challenge. Selective coloring, basically, is what you’re learning. Plus, there’s an ADORABLE kitty in the thread!! I swear I heard it purr at me!

Another one I’m going to attempt to do is the FONT CHALLENGE!!

Considering a certain popular show on ABC, this font is PERFECT for that. Anything related to reading or something! Hey, you could use the new BUFFET on it!! The Reading Room!

I can’t wait to see what you do!!


March’s book is The Hunger Games!! Join us for discussions starting March 07, and an unscheduled at the moment chat at the end of the month!

Before I forget!!

You still have a day or so!! Go check it out!!

Well, I think that’s about it!! If you have anything you think should be brought forth for a weekly round-up on Gingerscraps, give me a holler on Gingerscraps (I’m Sarah on there)! I’ll see what I can do!!
