Challenge Spotlight – Signature Challenge

Good morning, all! Hope your week is off to a great start; can you believe it’s now June?! It’s crazy to think that we’re already in the middle of the year, summer starting up…Christmas will be here before you know it! ;-)

This week I am spotlighting a super quick, super easy challenge: the signature challenge hosted by Rebecca of Twin Mom Scraps! Usually we just have a theme to follow, but Rebecca has created a way cool template for us to work with this month instead! Sometimes I lack creativity with my forum siggy, so I love this! Take a look:

Awesome; thanks for the fun siggy temp, Rebecca! :) I think the signature challenge is the first one most people do because it’s quick and fun. (Personally, I haven’t changed my sig since January…maybe this is the month to fix that!) Here’s some of the siggys the forum gals have come up with; they’re so bright and summery!

These are so awesome! Since the siggy area is somewhat small, this template is a great way to get your creative juices flowing here but still stay within the space–pretty great, right? :)

This is a new month, so you should run over to the June Challenge Points tracking thread and snag yourself a new spot to keep track of all your completed challenges! You know we have some sweet rewards for you at the end of the month, so don’t slack (like I usually do)! ;)

Y’all have a wonderful rest of your week–don’t forget to stop by the bake sale while all those full-size products are still just $1! See you next Tuesday. :)

Challenge Spotlight – Desktop Challenge

Good morning! How is everyone’s April going? It’s mid-terms for me right now, so I am feeling the crunch and in need of some relaxing. What better way than to get some scrapping done and earn points towards a super sweet reward? ;) This week I am spotlighting a challenge with a freebie: the desktop challenge hosted by Rebecca of Twin Mom ScrapsRebecca has come up with quite a cute little desktop template for us to play with; take a look!

Love it! This fabulous freebie desktop template is all yours if you play along with us and create your own desktop with at least 50% GingerScraps products. With all our new spring kits coming out, you’re sure to find something you love to spruce up your desktop. Check out these submissions for inspiration!

I love when three people can take one template and each come up with something completely different! That’s definitely the mark of a good designer and talented scrappers–both of which we have in spades at GS! Make sure you click through and leave some love for each of these ladies’ desktops. :)

Remember that super sweet reward I mentioned earlier? Well, take a look at what you could get for playing along with our monthly challenges: one buffet item, two buffet items or a $5 store gift certificate–awesome! Just make sure you start keeping a running tally of your completed challenges in the April Challenge Tracking thread. If you have any questions about how this or any of our other monthly challenges work, stop by the Cookie Jar and ask away! :)

Okie doke ladies, that’s it for me this week. Start working on your challenges, have a great day and an awesome week! :)

Happy Day after Valentine’s. Anyone else gorge themselves way too much on chocolate? I know that I did. I think that’s the point of Valentine’s Day. Right? Oh well if it’s not. It’s how we celebrate it.

I am loving looking at the love-filled layouts with this month’s buffet, Listen to Your Heart. I picked from the Buffet Challenge gallery this week, and if you’re wanting an “easy” challenge to do, this is definitely one for you!


Created by our own Spotlight Challenge host, Ambelleina. I have to giggle at the pictures. I love layouts that talk about why they love their significant other!
