Challenge Spotlight – Template Challenge #1

O.M.G. It’s JUNE already?! That’s just crazy. The year is nearly half-over! BUT what isn’t half-over is the awesomeness going on in the forums! (Ok, that was a reach, but it’s certainly true!) Everyone loves freebies, right? (I know my favorite price is FREE!) So, let’s start off this month’s challenge spotlights with one that includes a fabulous freebie, the month’s first template challenge hosted by Connie Prince!

Connie has definitely always been one of my favorite designers and I absolutely adore her templates. Let’s take a look at what she’s created for us to work with this month!

CUUUUUUTE! I’ve got this one downloaded and I can’t wait to use it! I love scallops and paper stacks and this template certainly fits the bill! Need some inspiration before you start this challenge? You know I’ve got some for you: let’s see what the lovely ladies of the forums have created with this template so far!

Stunning work as always from our talented ladies! I love when I see a template changed in subtle ways that makes it unique to every scrapper’s LO. A round of applause for the highlighted LOs!

So let’s recap: new month, new challenges, new chance at a discount coupon/store gift certificate and a fantastic freebie! What are you waiting for?! Get yourself to scrapping and upload your work to the gallery so we can leave you some love!

As always, if you have any questions on this or any other challenges, be sure to head over to the Cookie Jar and ask away. We have a wealth of knowledge on GingerScraps and we would love to assist in any way possible!

Until next time, my lovely readers! <3

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
