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!!

Fresh Baked for August 10, 2012

Oh, wow! Friday already? I’ve been so focused on the Olympics that I almost forgot what day it was.

The commitment this athletes have is amazing. Their focus and drive is inspiring.

I do wonder, though, if they are logging their memories like we do. The Go Team buffet is perfect for it.

Whether you’re into baseball or basketball, football or soccer, even wrestling and swimming, there is a mini in the buffet that would so be perfect.

This just reminds me of RenFest and doing the archery. It takes arm strength, focus, and determination. Love it!

Soccer, or football as it’s known everywhere but the US, is another sport where you need drive and focus. And really great legs and a very strong cardiovascular system.

Baseball is called America’s Sport, but it’s a worldwide one, I think. No two games are ever the same.

Fresh Baked for July 06, 2012

I’m completely ready for a vacation. The Midwest is going through a heat wave. It’s hot, and it’s draining.

But, I’ve gotta look at it from the bright side: it just means I have more of an excuse to sit in front of the computer.

Instead of climbing into a hot, sticky car, I can sit and scrapbook, enjoying the A/C.

Oh, and really admire the new kits that the amazing designers have come up with. Templates, foodies, and more, oh my!

While you look for that, remember that when you spend $10 in the store, you get an amazing grab bag. This month’s was created by Ryan, of Roseytoes, and it’s JAM-PACKED full of stuff.

Okay, I’ve got my water, so I can stay hydrated while I scrapbook. If I disappear for awhile, you’ll understand why.

Why not join in the fun that’s happening at Gingerscraps! Then you can get your scrap on, and maybe earn some freebies too!

We’ll see you there!!

Behind The Scrapbook

Oh my gosh!! Has anyone else had a crazy busy week?? Kiddos are out of school, Canada day and Independence Day tomorrow. I know there’s lots of festivities going on.  I was supposed to go to the cabin with my BFF but I just couldn’t get it together in time… real life sometimes gets in the way of my fun life. Although I’m sitting here in the quite… first time I sat down all day and I have to say I’m feeling good. Sure my week was long but I have a great sense of a accomplishment and I can sit here with my feet up sipping my nighty night tea and feel guilt free about sleeping in tomorrow morning!

It’s also been pretty busy around Ginger Scraps this week. I know I’m missing my ladies and looking forward to a new month filled with fun challenges! I’ve been taking pictures like crazy so I’m set!

I have been a little absent but I did check out Rachel’s new store… Hmmm yup that’s right I’m so excited to welcome Pretty in Green to Ginger Scraps. I’ve been a fan of her freebies and LO’s for some time and she is such a welcome addition to the team:) I am so excited about her new puppy love series… I have sooo many puppy photos that still need to be scrapped!

She also has other breeds of dogs as well… which is good because I have a whole pack!!

Rachel also has some good news on the home front. Her dear daughter Ana is really getting used to her new glasses she has even caught her even fixing them on her face rather than taking them off  she just looks so grown up in them, way too cute! Way to go Ana!!

In other goings on… I happened to talk to Mandy and she is recovering from her Ryliegh hangover! She had her niece Rye spend the week at her house… now keep in mind that her kids are 16 (we’ll get to that later!) and 11…

I’m going to copy and paste a post of hers from our private DT thread…. haha shhh…


Seriously I have no idea how you guys get anything done with little ones running around. I had my niece Rye for the past week and a bit and I am soooo pooped!!

She fun and pretty easy to look after but needs constant supervision! One day when she was running to the potty I was trying to just finish up gathering dishes… like 10 seconds goes by and I’m hot on her heels. I go to the bathroom and she’s not there…I find her in the kitchen … she had dumped a water bottle full of water into my big container of rice! So I made some rice that night for dinner…

She’s also doesn’t not like to be messy so if she gets a spot of mess on her clothes she needs to change…. it got to the point she showed me how to turn on my washing machine!! She’s brilliant! It’s a front load washer so she loads it with all her clothes I just need to do the soap!

Anyways life should be getting back to normal so I can catch up with my scrapping…

While I sit here a have a beer….... <—- that’s my favorite part ha!


And here’s a picture of the sweetie.. BTW totally getting the potty thing… Yay Rye!

Mandy also had another milestone this week. Her daughter Kelsey turned 16!!! And got her licence!! And a car!!!! That a whole lot for a mom to take in all in one week!!

Here’s Kelsey in her car…

Well I’m off to go dig around for some more juicy gossip…. cya next Saturday!!

Forum down :)

Just letting you all know that the GingerScraps forum and Gallery will be down for a bit. We are doing a few upgrades 🙂
