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:

Created using Take My Picture

Created using Rainbow

Created using You Inspire Me

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!!

Enjoy your Wednesday!! See you in the forums!!

Weekly Wrap-up: Well hello there August!

‘Sup ya’ll!

I think that’s all I’ve got for you today friends- I’m sure I could go on, but it’s SO gorgeous out this morning I’m just itchin’ to soak up the beautiful weather. It’s been so horribly humid the past week that the fresh, dry air of this morning has me opening my windows and actually looking forward to going outside! I’m beginning to ramble folks, that’s my cue to let you all go check out the linkage here and the shop and the forum and and and and… Yup, lots to do and see here at GingerScraps! 😉

*New GingerBread Ladies!* Pixels by Jen, Unforgettable Moments, PsychoZoe

Hello scrappers,

I am so excited to introduce you to three new GingerBread Ladies today! And ALL three of them are exclusive GingerScraps Designers!! I hope you find them as inspiring as I do. They have each picked a few products to feature today- but be on the lookout for all their wonderful goodies every Friday in the Fresh Baked newsletter as well.

First up help me give a big welcome to Pixels by Jen (know in the GingerScraps forum as vcjordi)

*Blog *Facebook *Twitter

Pixels by Jen Bio:
I am so excited to be a Gingerbread Lady here at GingerScraps! I have been digi scrapping since 2008 and designing since 2009. I was originally a paper scrapbooker and still love hybrid. I am married and have two wonderful boys that keep me hopping and full of pictures. In addition to digi scrapping I enjoy crochet, cooking and gardening.

She’s Country Kit:

This kit is full of beautiful lace patterns and colors. Inspired from modern western wear, this kit is both elegant and classy. Perfect for heritage and special occasion layouts or just to scrap your softer side. It includes 10 papers and 26 elements. If you like this kit you may also like the She’s Country Paper Pack Add On and the She’s Country Alphabet.


She’s Country Paper Pack Add On

These 10 papers add a playful and relaxed feel to the She’s Country Kit. Included are 5 hand doodled bandana papers and 5 coordinating solids.


She’s Country Alphabet

The carved wood in this alphabet coordinate with the frames in the She’s Country Kit. They go beyond being feminine and would work great for outdoor and rustic layouts as well.


Some Inspiration:





And next up- the debut of Unforgettable Moments (know in the GingerScraps forum as ~Aim~)

*Unforgettable Moments*


Unforgettable Moments Bio: My name is Amy of Unforgettable Moments. You may have seen me around digi-land as Buggie, AmyP, or ~Aim~. I have been on the GingerScraps CT, and I am beyond excited to join the Ginger Bread Ladies design team! I love everything about digital scrapbooking. I love the artistic aspects, I love how much fun it is, and I especially love that scrapbooking allows me to preserve my memories. I have two incredible young boys and I want to remember every little precious moment of their childhood. I want to make all my moments in life and with my family unforgettable… the big milestones as well as the “mundane” everyday. I want my albums to contain a legacy of my own life and that of my husband’s for my children, grandchildren, and beyond. Scrapbooking and digital-scrapbook design allows me to do just that! I would be honored to be able to help you along your journey of preserving all your Unforgettable Moments too!

And last but surely not least- help me give a big welcome to Susie of Psychozoe Designs (know in the GingerScraps forum as Psychozoe)

*Blog *Twitter *Facebook

Psychozoe Designs Bio- I am a wife, a mom to 2 teen sons; and 4 fur-babies. I’m always doing something creative.. interior design, silk floral design, photoshop, scrapbooking, and now digital scrapbooking. For several years I was on myspace as my dog, Chiqi, and my cat, Zoe, lol! I have thousands of pics I’ve made of them and their pet friends… just a portion of them are on my facebook now. We deleted our myspace.. taking too much time and since I discovered digi scrapping, that’s my main focus besides my family. Chiqi (my Minpin) has her own space in the master closet, lots of clothes and costumes and accessories… and Zoe (my kitty) is now my Digi name! PsychoZoe because she is the type of cat that lets you pet her for a second, then attacks… etc etc… several scars later. Plus, she is my computer buddy. She has to be in the middle of everything I’m doing. It’s so nice to be here. Thank you, Ginger, for inviting me here!!!!

Starting off with 3 CU items…
