Fresh Baked for August 31, 2012

I told you I’d be back again! This is the last of the August Newsletters! Tomorrow, if you can believe it, is the start of September!

Don’t despair though! The spotlight on the Go Team Buffet doesn’t have to stop just because August is ending! No! Go forth and play some baseball, score a couple baskets in basketball, perfect your own personal end zone dance when you score a touchdown! Life is all about having fun with the ones that we love.

Once again, I chose a couple layouts done by our amazing Gingerscraps members!! It is so hard to choose, each week, which Go Team layouts that I’m going to share with y’all. They all are just amazingly done! If I could, I’d share them all! Instead, I suggest you check out the gallery yourself, and share some of that love around! Let them know you saw their layout in the newsletter/the forum/the blog! Let them know that you enjoyed it!

The end of the month doesn’t mean an end to the goodies!! The designers have cooked up some fun creations, just begging to be played with!

Remember, when you spend $10 in the store, you get an amazing grab bag. August’s was created by JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps! It’s Back to School time, and this grab bag is PERFECT for it!!

The pitch has been made, the ball has made it’s way over the plate. The bat has been swung, and the crowd waits for the dust to settle. Was it a homerun or was it a strike.

The world may never know!

I’m just kidding!! I just had to throw in one more sports related reference while I still can!! Enjoy your homeruns full of amazing products, and I’ll see you again tomorrow for Fresh Baked: New Buffet!!

This Week’s Sneak Peeks

Hello Digi Friends!

This summer has simply flown by, hasn’t it! It is hard to believe Labor Day Weekend is just days away and that school is back in session across our nation. Soon, the weather will turn crisper in many parts of the States. I love Fall, so I am looking forward to crisper temperatures, the changing colors of the leaves, and fun fall projects to do with my kids! I have started my school year, though the kids come after labor day, and I am feeling sorta sad as I say good bye to summer days and summer nights, toes in the sand, taking our time to do things, doing things on a whim. Back to reality! Back to work (at a school for me!) and into a new routine as my daughter starts kindergarten next week and the kids start classes at the Y (swim and gymnastics). Change is good, but change can be hard!

One thing that never changes is the sneak peeks! I know I can count on the awesome designers at Gingerscraps to give us lots of goodies to ogle every week, stuff to drool over until their release on Fridays! These little snippets have me wanting more more more!!!! Let’s see what’s coming!

From Wyld Web Designs….

I am loving the layout here! What a nice way to get alot of pictures on one page! Makes for a nice double page spread, too!

How ZooRific is this! Love the tiger stripe paper and the way the photos look like they are in notebooks! Clever!

The placement of the photos here in this pretty LO is so eyecatching! Love these colors and those cute little ballerinas!!

A new alpha from Blue  Heart Scraps that is coming our way… Love the color scheme here, the layout of the pictures, the elements and frames, and that cute alpha.

A new template from Neverland Scraps and kit from Pixelily…

I love the notebook paper here and these pretty, soft colors! Could that be pom pom ribbon in here, too!? Shazam!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that!!!

(I get crazy about rick rack, ribbons, trim, pom poms, eyelet lace, and stuff like that!)

From Sugar Kissed Designs…what a pretty layout! I really like this color palette here! So funky, modern, and cool (and another new template from Neverland Scraps)!

From Pixelily Designs ….check out this angled striped paper! Love these colors together! Citrus-y delicious, funky and fantastically fun!


All righty now! I am getting excited about shopping the Gingerscraps Store for all this scrumptiousness and these goodies that will no doubt make my scrapping fun!

So come on, pull up a mouse, grab a cup of ‘Joe, and let’s wait together in the Gingerscraps Forum until the awesomeness arrives!

Scrap On, Digi Friends, Scrap on, and enjoy the last moments of summer!

Fresh Baked: Welcome Kawouette Designs

Okay, I know it’s not Friday, nor is it the first of the month, but sometimes, there’s just something that can’t be contained. It can’t be held back. This is one of those times!!

We at Gingerscraps are proud to welcome a new designer!! Kawouette Designs!!


We asked her to introduce herself, and here’s what she had to say:

Hi! i’am Laëtitia aka Kawouette.
I’m 28 years old. I live in France with my husband and my 3 children (9,6 and 2)!
I scrap since 5 years and i’am designer since 4 years. I have stopping designs on January and i’am back with lots of delicious new goodies!
I love photography, travel,be with my kids,cinema and films in genera!But i don’t like cooking!! I prefer digiscrap!
I love creating kits, purple, owls and stitches in my kits is my favorite!

She’s a French designer, so while her English isn’t perfect, her designs are!! Don’t just take MY word for it! See for yourself!!

Before I show you, though, Kawouette Designs is having a Grand Opening Sale!!

Now, time to show off those kits I was talking about!!

The Gingerscraps CT had a lot of fun working with the kits, too!! Here are a few of the layouts they’ve created:

She is also holding a CT call!! If you love her designs, and you think you’d be a good fit, make sure you apply!!

I think that’s all for now. I’ll see you again Friday and then again on Saturday for SEPTEMBER!!

Challenge Spotlight – Mix It Up Challenge

Hi ladies and happy Tuesday! How has everyone’s weeks started off? I tell you, I am already swamped! School started for me yesterday, as I’m sure it did for a lot of your kids, as well! I’m excited to be back and I’m sure y’all are excited to get the kiddos back in school. 🙂

This is the last week in August so before I start my spotlight, I want to remind everyont to TALLY YOUR CHALLENGES and get them recorded in the August Challenge Points Tracking thread. You’ve got to have everything recorded By August 31 if you want those fabulous prizes! 🙂

This week I am spotlight a challenge that I struggled initially with, then it blossomed into one of my favorite layouts this month: the Mix It Up challenge hosted by Rebecca of Twin Mom Scraps! Rebecca has made a nifty little layout recipe for us this month; take a look:

Thanks for the challenge, Rebecca! Sounds so simple, but the scrappers in the forum have been creating some really cool pages from this recipe! Yes, I’ve been running through them and picking out the recipe just to see everyone’s takes on it! Here are some great layouts for you to gain a little inspiration from…

Stunning layouts, ladies! I just love Chris’ fun title work, Lisa’s beachy clusters and Diana’s snowflake scatter. Do we have some serious talent here at GS, or what? 😉 If you want to see your layout highlighted here next week, make sure you’re jumping in on all the challenges! 🙂

AGAIN, I will remind everyone who’s still conscious through my blathering that this is the LAST WEEK to get your challenges completed, tallied up and recorded in the August Challenge Points Tracking thread to be eligible for either one buffet piece, two buffet pieces or a $5 store gift certificate! I’m already trying to decide which kit I *need* to spend my certificate on… 😀

If you have any questions about this, or any of our monthly challenges, send them over to the Cookie Jar and someone awesome will back to you. 🙂 OK, enough reading–more scrapping! That’s it for me this week…and this month! See y’all in September! 🙂
