From the Archives – 2017

Well scrappers, this is the last creative blog post of 2017. It is also the last Saturday of 2017. Which means yesterday’s Fresh Baked goodies were the last goodies for 2017. I know I say it every year. I am going to say it again. Where did 2017 get to? I feel like it was just January and we were gearing up for the new year.

Instead we are rounding up 2017; and today we are going to take a look back in the archives. Usually I go back as far as I can in the store to showcase the oldies but goodies of the digital scrapbooking supplies here at GingerScraps. Today’s From the Archives post will be a little different. We are going to take a look back at 2017.

In 2017 we saw other stores close. It is always so sad to see that happen. However, we did gain some amazing designers, staff, and faces around the forum and galleries. We also gained some new friends because of that. There is no doubt about it though. We saw some great designs from our designers here at GignerScraps this year. We had 52 Fresh Baked releases. I would love to show you at least one from each week. I don’t want to overwhelm your sense though. Instead, I am going to show you some of my favorites from 2017. I realize that not all tastes are the same. That my favorite isn’t going to be yours. I do hope you enjoy this look back at 2017 though. Brought to you by our talented designers here at GingerScraps.

Over the moon is an enchanting collection inspired by the moon, the stars and eternal love. In dramatic hues of navy, pink, aqua and gold, this versatile collection includes beautiful elements such as full moons, glittering stars, crescent moons, hearts, gorgeous flowers and lovey word bits, among many others fabulous goodies, and is perfect to scrap the love of your life, your baby’s photo album, cozy bedtime moments, a summer night’s walk by the moonlight, a trip to the planetarium, your favorite theme park after dark, anniversary pages, or simply a magical evening.

I could do an entire month long (or longer) series on my favorites from 2017. This was just digital scrapbooking kits; and it doesn’t even showcase every wonderful designer we have here at GingerScraps. We have over 40! You should know by now, I try not to overload your visual senses (and bank account!) with too many goodies. When we take a look back at 2018 next year though, we will take more than one week to do it.

So, what was some of your favorites from this year? A new to you designers, or a favorite kit/collection? Or your favorite layout or memory? What do you want to see from our designers here in 2018? What would you like to see here on the blog?  Inquiring minds want to know. Make sure to comment with your favorites and ideas.

and with that…I’ll be back here on the GingerScraps blog next year. 🙂

Happy New Year!!!
