Daily Download: January 2013–Day 01

Okay, first, let me freak out a little. I mean, seriously. It’s JANUARY. It’s TWENTY-THIRTEEN! Oh Wow.

Twenty-twelve is officially over!

December, you were really in for a treat! Several designers teamed up, and they all worked together to make a BEAUTIFUL kit!

The designers:

January’s Daily Download is just as awesome! I promise! Connie Prince, of Connie Prince Designs, is the designer this month, and considering the snow I see outside my window, and the snow that I hear has hit so many other places, PERFECT for January!

Make sure you come back every day!

Inside the Designer Studio: Ask the Designers

Hello friends! I’m here this morning to bring you part two of Inside the Designer Studio for this month. Earlier in the month we met the designers, May of Siamese Studios, Jennifer of Luv Ewe Designs and Amy of Unforgettable Moments.  I put to you, our fabulous community, to ask the designers anything you wanted to know and this is what you’ve come up with:

First, as I sip my breakfast tea, coffee or tea?

MayBoth! Normally one coffee to start the day, then hot or iced tea during the day, but sometimes I love to have iced coffee as well.

JenniferNeither…Dr. Pepper!

Amy: I really do like both, but I drink coffee every morning. I enjoy fruity/floral herbal teas and black tea with cream. I like going to coffee shops with friends also (hence my Coffee Shop With Friends kit LOL).

Jennifer and Amy, how long have you been with us at GingerScraps?

Jennifer: October of last year (2011)

Amy: I started as a designer at GS 1 year and 9 months ago. However I first started hanging around GS when I registered for Scraping Survivor2 in 2010. I played survivor and learned what a fun, friendly place GS is! I did get 4th place in the contest that year which I was excited about- I couldn’t beat that talented Rachel (Pretty In Green) LOL.

MayWhere are you originally from and how did you find yourself in Thailand? 

I am originally from Thailand as I was born here, but our family moved to Singapore, and Malta for several years, then moved back to Thailand since 30 something years ago (no, no, don’t ask how old I am, LOL).

Wouldn’t dream of it! ;)

Jennifer, since you mentioned never wanting to be called Jenny, now we’ve got to ask why. ;)

LOL! It just sounds kiddish to me. A very few call me that like my sister and brother and I don’t even know where it came from but they call me that.

Amy, what do you love most about OR? 

Oregon is a really fantastic place. I can drive two hours west and be at the ocean, Visiting the desert of Eastern Oregon is a day trip also! Mt. Hood is just a short drive away, and not to mention Portland which is a decent sized big city. My favorite is the big evergreen trees. I also love visiting the river beaches. There are so many recreational opportunities here. There is also no state tax, and a lot of out of state people love buying things here because of that. We do have higher property taxes for home owners to make up for that though. Oregon is beautiful, but it does rain a lot which doesn’t bother me at all though. 

That sounds like a dream!

With summer in full swing, what are your favorite warm weather activities?

May: Swimming!!! Our warm weather is normally VERY HOT, so swimming helps a lot.

Jennifer:  Swimming, but prefer swimming indoors than outdoors.

Amy: I really love taking camping trips with my family. We aren’t really “roughing” it kind of campers, but we love being outside, roasting things on the campfire, and playing in nature.

Fun!

Now let’s talk designing!  What do you enjoy most about designing scrap kits?

May: I love it most when the final result is just like what I’ve vision about the kit. Then I love when seeing layouts made from my kits. It’s amazing to see all different layouts from just one kit.

Jennifer: Just being creative. I can let off steam while creating.

Amy: OH! I love so many things about designing. I love designing scrap kits AND templates. Love it! I really love the creative process and watching my ideas go from idea to product. I really love seeing my designs on a scrappers layout!

What is one element you feel you must always include into a kit?

MayFoliage! I love to see some green in my kit.

Jennifer: Buttons and string.

Amy:  I would say fasteners. I know that is kind of generic huh? I’m having a hard time narrowing my answer down to just one element LOL.

 What is your most favorite kit you’ve designed and your best selling?

May: My most favorite kit is usually the latest kit(s) that I’ve designed. For now it would be Cotton Candy and Lemon Drops. My bestselling would have to be Bumble Rumble.

JenniferI think it was Miracles Happen. I just really like the color palette and felt it all fell together! My best selling would be In A Boys World.

AmyI really like the kit I made for the June FWP grab bag. I had my hubby in mind when I made that one. :) Honey Love is my best selling kit, and Something Sweet is my best selling template pack.

From a personal opinion of someone who owns this kit, it’s absolutely awesome! I think it’s my favorite of yours! It’s FREE with a $10 purchase in the GingerScraps store (for the month of June, so you’ve got 7 days left!)!

Those are some GREAT kits!

Just for fun let’s end with what your favorite foods are!

MayAll sorts of pasta, but my favorite would be Cabonara. I make yummy Cabonara too! ;)

JenniferOh my too many to name! I love mexican, anything cheesy (the cheesier the better), oh and home made potato soup. I can make myself sick from eating too much of that LOL.

AmyMy favorite “meal” is probably taco salad. We have this a lot in our home. We try to think of new and fun ways to make it lol. My kids love it because we let them crunch up tortilla chips on the top. My favorite bad-for-you food is ice cream.

Now I’m hungry, and I JUST ate breakfast (especially since I, too, am a giant pasta fan!).

A HUGE thank you to the designers for taking time out of their family and designing time to answer these questions! There were so many more I wish I could keep sharing but we don’t want to be here all day, we’ve got scrappin’ to do. ;)  I always have fun finding out these little tidbits about people.

Until next month!

Have a scrap happy weekend!

 

 

 

 

Fresh Baked for June 15, 2012

It’s almost summer! Summer officially starts June 20th in this hemisphere. That’s less than a week from now! I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for all those summer activities to start. Do you have any big plans? This week, the designers have definitely had summer on their minds. Spending time with family, playing in the dirt, getting fit, all of that good stuff!

Before I give you the amazing kits that the designers have cooked up, we have some sales we want to share with you.


http://store.gingerscraps.net/Unforgettable-Moments/

Roseytoes is also having a sale! 50% off most items, collab kits are $5, bundles are $8!

Don’t go just yet! There’s still some amazing kits to come!

Remember, when you spend $10 at the store, you receive an amazing grab bag. This month’s grab bag is by Unforgettable Moments. It’s perfect for the males in your life! June is the month of Father’s Day (at least in the States), so this would completely suit a hybrid project or layout for the special man in your life!

Team Spotlight: It’s a BIG one!

We’re making up lost time in a BIG way!  Today we’re going to talk to not one, not two, but THREE of our incredible designers!

Alright ladies, please introduce yourselves!

 

My name is Jen – I’ve been designing under the name Jen C Designs for 2 years – and loving it! My husband and I will be  celebrating our sixth anniversary this summer and we have two kids: Luke, age 4, and Charlotte, age 2. I started digiscrap    designing when I was creating blogs for friends – I stumbled into DST one day and never looked back again!

I’m JoyLynn, living in Huntsville, Alabama with my amazing husband (seriously, he puts up with me and rarely complains, lol) and the two cutest boys ever (I have pics!).  Tyler’s 6, smart, funny, and just finished Kindergarten.  Hayden is a 4 year old fireball full of awesomeoness (who makes me giggle a bit too much when he calls you a “goose” and completely leaves the ‘silly’ off the front of it) :) I’ve been designing just over a year and a half, having started on a push from a designer friend (*waves at Ryan*), but enjoying the fun of learning more and more as I go along.

Hey I’m Rachel of Pretty in Green Designs, I’m a 27 year old stay at home mom to 2 little kidos Anastasia and Gage, I started designing by just playing around making freebies, but after I won the 2nd season of Ginger Scraps Survivor I was making full sized kits, and the lovely Ginger offered me a spot on the design team! So I’ve been designing now for alittle over 2 years now, and I just love designing even if it is a lot of work, I just itch to get these cute ideas out of my head! My Husband of 7 years works a strange shift, which gives me quite a bit of time to play around , lol.

 

Jen is our Guest Designer this month, JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps has provided our Daily Download for May (it’s super cute! don’t skip a single day!) and Rachel of Pretty in Green Designs designed our great Free-with-purchase grab bag!

We opened up the floor to have YOU ask these ladies whatever it is you wanted- here are there answers!

Jen, I’ve been a fan of yours since I started scrapping, even before I discovered GS! How long have you been designing and scrapping in general?

Thank you so much! I’ve been designing and scrapping since April 2010. Though I paper scrapped since I was little  I’ve always been in to creative outlets – but with two small kids, keeping my crafts and hobbies tucked into my computer!

JoyLynn, who is your biggest celebrity crush? ;) 

It changes…often.  Right now? Chris Hemsworth (yummy, yummy Thor — he could [insert racy hammer innuendo! ;) ] )!

Rachel,  if you had $1,000 to spend ON YOURSELF right now, what would you buy? (Groceries/bills/childrens’ things NOT allowed!)

That’s a hard one, I’m always last on the list, but I did just get my kitchen redone, so lets see….. I guess I’d get some new outfits, I’m a jeans and tee shirt kind of gal, and lately I’ve been feeling like I need a little bit more style lol, so yeah that would be a fun $1000 to spend!

Now for all three of you, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Jen: Great question! Well I’ve already lived there to be honest. I would love to live in Vancouver BC again – I grew up in BC, moved to Ontario when I was 4 and then met my husband when we were going to grad school in Vancouver. It’s a beautiful city – but alas we moved – and until we win the lottery we won’t be heading back. Right now I love living in Belfast – we are so close to so much – and just a short hop on an airplane to all of Europe.

JoyLynn: Right where I am…but maybe in just a little bigger house.  My mommy is close…I can’t leave her  :)

Rachel: Oh, I wouldn’t move from here, I LOVE my home, the hubby and I have had this discussion before you know the “if we won the lottery” talk, I would just stay right here and fix up the house more and buy the land behind us, LOL.

What is your favorite kit of your own?

Jen:  That is so hard to choose – I think though that based on it’s popularity and that it’s about my little girl AND my team created such gorgeous work, I would have to choose Divalicious!

JoyLynn: Beep Boop! The bright colors, the adorable robots.  It just screams my boys!

Rachel: Oh do I have to pick! Well right now its the soon to be released kits that are in the “Free with $10 Purchase” grab bag, I really like the diversity I put in to those kits.

This kit will be released in June for purchase, but right now you can get it for FREE if you spend $10 in the store!

 Okay, now, what is your favorite kit that YOU didn’t design?

Jen: I love everything on Connie’s – one of my recent faves of her’s is For You.

JoyLynn: That answer changes pretty regularly, too. But, since the boys are just about finished with TBall for this year…I really need to pick up Batter Batter Swing and make some adorable layouts of them! :D

Rachel: That’s another hard one, geesh! Designing doesn’t give me a whole lot of time for scrapping, although I should make time! I’d have to say my favorite kit Right Now that I didn’t make would have to be Sublime by Sugar Kissed Designs, I just love the colors and the style… of course that super cute puppy of hers gets me every time!

Okay, one last question for each of you!

Jen, What theme/color palette have you never worked with but would love to?

Black, white and red is something I want to work with – I’ve had an idea in my head for a year – but never got around to it! 

Well, hopefully we’ll see something soon then! ;)

JoyLynn, what is one thing you hate to do, when it comes to actual designing?

Always questioning and second guessing myself.  I do it for myself, first and foremost, so I have to like what the finished product is.  But, I’m also designing for others to enjoy and want to create lasting memories with, so I always wonder if anyone else will agree with adding this paper or that element.  It’s scary to put your personal side out there and then have to wait and see if others approve of it.

I think it’s safe to say, we all approve of your totally AWESOME designs!

And finally, Rachel, where DID you come up with your designer name?

Well, when I created my user name for GingerScraps, it was just a silly play on Pretty In Pink, yeah the 80’s Movie…. lol so as I started playing around with designing everyone knew me as pretty in green so I just kept it, and I think it’s has turned out to be an awesome name! I get to call my beautiful CT team Pretty Girls, and it can also stand for digi scrapping being green friendly so, I’m stickin with it!

It’s a perfect fit! Digi scrapping IS totally green friendly, and your kits are certainly pretty!

Alright, that’s it for today friends! I’d like to thank each one of these ladies for taking the time to answer these questions (and more! there were too many to post!), share a little bit more about themselves, personally, silly and about their designing. Make sure to check out these ladies personal favorites, all of which are in the store right now!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Let’s Get Crafty: Halloween Crafts

Hi GingerScrapers! I know..I know..I have missed a few Crafty Thursdays…I’m sorry! I have been so busy. I am the team Mom for the Freshmen Football team…our games are on Thursdays. But, not only is it the games, we feed the team and caoches before each game. It’s a big meal and I’m in charge of it!  I have to be at the school at 7am to collect all the food from the players. Make sure the food all gets warmed up by the lunch ladies, then serve the food at 2…game time at 5. So, what I’m saying here is…I’m a busy girl during Football sason :) This week my kids don’t have school. We still have a football game though, but I dont have to collect the food until noon:) So, I figured I would do a little Let’s Get Crafty post for you!

Halloween is in like 10 days. I went online to find some cheap and easy Halloween projects to do with my kids and I am going to share them with you!

This first one is a great way to use up all those baby food jars you have laying around..

It’s super easy and fun to make with the kiddos. Go to Skip to my Lou for a tutorial.

How about a spooky tree…

You can get instructions and templates for this one here

How about a cute fabric banner…

You can learn how to make this on Running With Needles

How about making a “Hybrid Banner” Instead of fabric, use your digital scrapbooking supplies! There are so many cute Halloween kits at GingerScraps you could use! How about I give you a free template to make yourself a banner :)

I used the kit Gobblin Delights which is a GingerScraps collab that you will be able to get at our Halloween party next weekend! I use Statements by Jodis part for my banner:) Make sure you come to our Halloween Party at GingerScraps to get this kit and lots of fun games and prizes!

You can download your Free Template here!

I hope you make some time to get Crafty today! See you at the Halloween Party

They have each picked a few products to feature today- but be on the lookout for all their wonderful goodies every Friday in the Fresh Baked newsletter as well.

Pixels by Jen Bio:
I am so excited to be a Gingerbread Lady here at GingerScraps! I have been digi scrapping since 2008 and designing since 2009. I was originally a paper scrapbooker and still love hybrid. I am married and have two wonderful boys that keep me hopping and full of pictures. In addition to digi scrapping I enjoy crochet, cooking and gardening.

She’s Country Kit:

This kit is full of beautiful lace patterns and colors. Inspired from modern western wear, this kit is both elegant and classy. Perfect for heritage and special occasion layouts or just to scrap your softer side. It includes 10 papers and 26 elements. If you like this kit you may also like the She’s Country Paper Pack Add On and the She’s Country Alphabet.

She’s Country Paper Pack Add On

These 10 papers add a playful and relaxed feel to the She’s Country Kit. Included are 5 hand doodled bandana papers and 5 coordinating solids.

She’s Country Alphabet

The carved wood in this alphabet coordinate with the frames in the She’s Country Kit. They go beyond being feminine and would work great for outdoor and rustic layouts as well.

*Unforgettable Moments*

Unforgettable Moments Bio: My name is Amy of Unforgettable Moments. You may have seen me around digi-land as Buggie, AmyP, or ~Aim~. I have been on the GingerScraps CT, and I am beyond excited to join the Ginger Bread Ladies design team! I love everything about digital scrapbooking. I love the artistic aspects, I love how much fun it is, and I especially love that scrapbooking allows me to preserve my memories. I have two incredible young boys and I want to remember every little precious moment of their childhood. I want to make all my moments in life and with my family unforgettable… the big milestones as well as the “mundane” everyday. I want my albums to contain a legacy of my own life and that of my husband’s for my children, grandchildren, and beyond. Scrapbooking and digital-scrapbook design allows me to do just that! I would be honored to be able to help you along your journey of preserving all your Unforgettable Moments too!

And last but surely not least- help me give a big welcome to Susie of Psychozoe Designs (know in the GingerScraps forum as Psychozoe)

*Blog *Twitter *Facebook

Psychozoe Designs Bio- I am a wife, a mom to 2 teen sons; and 4 fur-babies. I’m always doing something creative.. interior design, silk floral design, photoshop, scrapbooking, and now digital scrapbooking. For several years I was on myspace as my dog, Chiqi, and my cat, Zoe, lol! I have thousands of pics I’ve made of them and their pet friends… just a portion of them are on my facebook now. We deleted our myspace.. taking too much time and since I discovered digi scrapping, that’s my main focus besides my family. Chiqi (my Minpin) has her own space in the master closet, lots of clothes and costumes and accessories… and Zoe (my kitty) is now my Digi name! PsychoZoe because she is the type of cat that lets you pet her for a second, then attacks… etc etc… several scars later. Plus, she is my computer buddy. She has to be in the middle of everything I’m doing. It’s so nice to be here. Thank you, Ginger, for inviting me here!!!!
