Fresh Baked for June 29, 2012

Do you realize that this is the last week of June. June only has two more days left, if you count today. I cannot believe that it’s already almost July! That means even more hot temps. It’s already hit the triple digits. The heat is making me just want to sit in front of the computer and scrapbook.

Well, I think that’s what I’m going to do! The designers have some gorgeous designs coming out, something for everyone, no matter your subject! You’ll find something you’ll enjoy!

You still have a couple more days to get a chance at some coupons and discounts, if you participate in the challenges! You should join us!

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!

Sneak Peeks!

Good Morning!

Before I start, let’s take a small moment and think of, say a little prayer for, those people and families in Colorado right now who are fighting the wild fires- the actual emergency crews and the people being displaced, losing their homes, businesses and so on. They are all certainly in my thoughts. 

I’ll admit, it’s been a wee bit crazy for me this morning including disassembling the vacuum because it sucked up part of my phone case, yes I’m serious. So what do I have for you today? A few little sneak peeks that’ll have to hold you over until Sunday when you get to see the AMAZING new July Buffet our designers have whipped up for you. For real, I’m ecstatic!

So without further rambling from me let’s see what I’ve got!

Here is a new one from Pixels by Jen. I am super serious about that number paper! And that lined paper! PAPER PAPER PAPER! Maybe that’ll be my new addiction?


Here’s one from Twin Mom Scraps. I am such a sucker for stars and though it’s tucked in behind those cute flowers, I am lovin’ that little firework rocket! Looks to me like this new kit will be perfect for our impending American holiday!

I am oogling all these pretty papers from Unforgettable Moment’s new release! I love the neutral, earthy tones of Unforgettable Moments’ kits and this is no exception. Love the color pallet.

Check out this super cute kit by Connie Prince! I love that little barn! And the chicken! And the ribbon!

Those are some seriously awesome peeks at what’s to come I think. Not as many as we might be used to but I PROMISE you there is more coming. You just wait and see!

I don’t want to leave you just yet! I’ve got a couple other things I want to share with you. TONIGHT is our Book Club Chat and I hear there is a participation prize! Even if you haven’t read our June Read (The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks), you can still join us for a “spoilers chat” as one lovely forum member put it (love it!).

Chat is hosted by our lovely JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps. All information listed right ^ ^ up there. 😉  Hope to see you there!  If you just can’t wait for the chat tonight, then do jump into the June book discussion thread in the forum too!

I also hope to see you Friday night at the Night Owls Scrap & Chat!

Every Friday night Terra of Sugar Kissed Designs rustles up some kind of delicious goodie for us and this week she does not disappoint!  She’s got a super cute mini for everyone who joins the chat! Here is a bonus peek at that mini (which you can find in full in the Night Owls forum thread):

Okay okay, NOW I think I’m done. 😉 It’s going to be a hot one today here at home- and I’ve been hearing from quite a few members of our community that it’s been a scorcher for them as well throughout the week. In my opinion, perfect day to stay in the AC in scrap scrap scrap! 🙂 Which is exactly what I intend to do!

Challenge Spotlight – Brush Challenge

Happy Tuesday yet again, my lovely ladies! Hope everyone reading this is well (and everyone not reading this, as well…of course!) and having a great start to your week! It’s scorching hot here in Texas and I’m already ready for the weekend! All I want to do is stay in the A/C and scrap! For my last blog of the month, I’ll be spotlighting a new challenge to the forums: Jenn of Joyful Heart Designs’ NEW brush challenge! Now for the gorgeous brushes she’s picked for this month:

I haven’t used brushes in ages, but this new challenge will certainly get me doing that again. Now, if you think the brushes alone are pretty, you’ve got to see what the forum gals have been baking up! Need some inspiration? Here we go!

Seriously brilliant work, gals! So glad this was used for a hybrid card; my mind is cooking with plans for future projects using these brushes! Take a minute and click through to the gallery and leave these gorgeous scraps some love! So…how about you? Ready to start scrapping? 😀

This is the LAST WEEK to get your June challenges in and tallied up in the June Challenge Points Tracking thread; make sure you’re keeping track so you can win a discount coupon/gift certificate to the store when the month is done! As if the free brushes and major (digi) street cred isn’t enough, you get a discount/gift! (See why GingerScraps is the friendliest place in digiland? ;)) Don’t forget, if you have any questions about this or any of the other challenges, head over the to Cookie Jar and ask away!  We’ve got scads of helpful ladies just waiting to help if you need it.

That’s it for this week–and this month! (WOW, June is gone! So crazy!) I’ll see y’all back here next week to start off July’s challenge spotlights. Have a great week…now get to scrapping! 🙂
