Store Closing Sale at GingerScraps

Hey Everyone!! I wanted to give y’all one last chance to pick up if there was anything you wanted to pick up from my store at GingerScraps.

Retiring products are 60% off!!


I have a lot to be thankful for. Being a part of GingerScraps is one of them. I've had a place to work, fine tune what I really love to do, and meet some wonderful people.

Part of that change is moving away from GingerScraps to somewhere new. And during that move the kits and most of the Buffet pieces I've made are not coming with. So I'm retiring them at fantastic savings just for you all!!

The sale ends when my store closes on April 30th.

Thank you to everyone that came out to GingerScraps to support me. I will be back soon with a new store announcement and iNSD information.

New Release - New Hybrid Challenge

Hello everyone!!

New release time!! I’m back with some template and cutting files that will hopefully help you get your Project Life/Pocket Scrapbooking products under control. And I’ve also made on for cardmakers. 




Here are few examples of Ready For Life in use:

Krista-WW1 Krista-WW2 Krista-WW3
the project above was made by Krista

And for Valentine’s Day decorating fun I made these:



Please note: These votive cups are intended for use with battery operated LED type candle replacements. Paper, especially papers coated for use with printers are highly flammable and should not be used near open flame. Please!





And these make great treat containers for gift giving and tablescapes.


And lastly, it’s a new month so there’s a new hybrid challenge in the GingerScraps Forum.


You can get this card template for free just for coming over and checking us out.

Till next time, thank you for reading this far and happy hybriding!!

Hello All!
I have so much to tell you about, I have a new kit releasing and a new hybrid challenge, complete with freebie card template, available over in the GingerScraps forum. More on that in a bit though.

(My apologies for a messy post, I usually use Live Writer, but it's not playing nice with Blogspot today, so I'm cobbling this together the old fashioned way!)

First the kit, to say this kit has been a labor of love is an understatement. I’ve been working on this kit so long, too long probably, but I had to get it just right. And I think I may have done it!

It was originally requested in the threads at GingerScraps. Did you know we have a Suggestion Box area, where you can post ideas for kits? We have a pretty good track record of filling requests, so many great ideas and designers to fill those wishes.

We’ve often tinkered with the idea of brewing our own beer, but haven’t put much effort forth, with Hubs working full time and going to school, there just hasn’t been the time, but the draw is still there.

And now Beer Fests and tasting have sprung up in our little northern town and the interest in checking out other’s brews is an easy “compromise” to brewing our own.

Personally, I love an Apricot Wheat beer brewed by our local brewhouse. Hubs drinks a much much darker brew, his latest fave is Cold Press Coffee Ale, again by a local brewhouse. Would you like a peek at all the goodies in this kit? There are quite a few.

The kit includes 101 elements (including the few recolors):

The “coasters” include both a new and “slightly” used version.

Journal cards (also with bleed versions) for pocket scrapbooking and journaling.  Also, a 4x6 rate card, lightly textured for easy home printing.

Fifty beer variety word strips, all fifty words in both colors.
And not one, but two alphas!


Whoo! I wish I could tell you how much I love this kit! I’m actually pretty excited to use it. I may just have to get him started brewing that beer after all!

And the CT layouts, oh my goodness, the GingerBread Girls did an amazing job with my little ol’ kit.

Save 25% off through Dec 18th.

And last but not least, the freebie!
Available till the end of the month, a super quick starter for those Holiday cards you forgot to make. ;)

Just come on over to the forum and pick it up. We’d love to see what you made with it, to get points for fantastic collab kits designed especially for Challenge Participants. More info in the forum.

That’s all I have for this week. I should have a new hybrid release coming next week. So excited! (Boy, I’m pretty excitable aren’t I?)

June Buffet and Daily Download

Hello Everyone!! I hope the weather where you are is as beautiful as it is here!!! I may have to give up on having a yard this year and just accept the dandelion farm it seems to have become. Winking smile


So….. an update on what’s happening with me is a tad overdue but no time like the present. The GS Buffet is up and I have to say I absolutely love what I’ve made for this month!!

Did you see the little elephant…. he’s so cute!!
Slightly roughed up, slightly worn. Circus themed and more. Includes exclusive hand drawn elements (by me!!) 23 unique elements (not including recolors).
Includes: badge, burlap banner, circus tent, buttons, elephant, feather, flowers, ring of flame frame, 2 pocket scrapbook size journal cards (with bleed also), string of lights (with and without glow), popcorn cup, popcorn, ticket and top hat (also cut out for placing in photos). Like this:


And of course there are some papers.


Here’s a closer look at the papers. Fourteen total, including 6 slightly worn through solids.


And the alpha, I love the alpha, I love how it turned out.

This alpha is capitals only, numbers 0 – 9 and limited punctuation. And the stripes to “hold” the letters in place, just like old fashioned sign boards.

All this is only $1 per pack till June 5th!!!

Now before I forget, Simple Girl Scraps and I are in the Designer Spotlight at GingerScraps this month. So what’s that mean for you? Two things….

#1 30% off my store all month long, no coupon required.


#2 Daily Download Freebie Kit on the GingerScraps blog. Sure it started on the first, but good news, the downloads stay up for 5 days, so there’s still time to get all the piece you may have missed already.
Here’s a sneak peak of the free kit by Simple Girl Scrap and myself.

And I’m hosting this month’s Designer Spotlight Challenge, so please come by and say hi!

Ok, I think that’s everything for me. I might sneak out on the deck and let the sun warm my toes… till the mosquitos find me anyway!

Thank you for stopping by!! See you again soon!!
