Old Fashioned Christmas

 Happy Friday morning!  I’m currently camped out in the recliner, legs covered by a warm, fuzzy blanket, wishing it would have snowed here (they’ve ‘talked’ about it the past week, but once again, it was all talk *sigh*).  I’m the only member of my family who wishes the snow would have found us, which seems strange to me (what kids DON’T love snow, right?!) — but it’s closing in on Christmas time, it’s 31 degrees outside.  Might as well made the cold weather worth it, right? 🙂
Fridays mean new releases at GingerScraps, and this week, I’m taking you back a little with my new release.  Old Fashioned Christmas, which originally released during a guest spot at another store last year, is finally making its way into my GingerScraps store.  Old Fashioned Christmas helps you brings back the nostalgic feeling of the holidays with a vintage feeling.

Also available is a gorgeous set of coordinating ombre-inspired papers:

Happy December!  I can’t believe the year is almost over – I promise it feels like 2017 just started and we’re already nearing the start of 2018!  December and Christmas festivities are already in full swing around my house — that means Christmas trees and gingerbread houses and lots of Fa La La.  I LOVE the holiday season.

Be Grateful $5 Grab Bag

Happy Friday!  It’s new release day at GingerScraps and I have a gorgeous new $5 Grab Bag collection that I can’t WAIT for you to see!  Inspired by gorgeous jewel tones, perfect for the autumn season, and the attitude of gratitude we all need to have this holiday season.

When I picked the colors for Be Grateful, I thought of my mom. Two years ago this week, she suffered a medical emergency that left me frozen in fear.  For two long weeks we waited, hoping beyond hope (and anxiously awaiting the results of test after test) that the doctors could do something to help her.  In the end, she withstood a difficult, stressful, and medically scary year and a half…but she survived, and that’s what matters most.  Last Friday, she celebrated her 70th birthday (though she might kill me to know I posted that year for all to see, lol)…and so my mind these past few weeks has been filled with the realization of just how blessed we are in this life, even when it’s not an easy one. I hope the love for my mother shines through in this special kit, and helps you document all that you are grateful for, too.


BeGrateful $5 Grab Bag
There are so many things in this life to be thankful for, and the Be Grateful $5 Grab Bag is the perfect digital scrapbooking kit to help you easily scrap about them all!
$5 Grab Bag includes:
full kit (7 plain/14 patterned papers and 66 elements)
8 journal cards

Chevron Love Templates & Freebie!

Happy Friday morning!  If we’re being honest, I’m actually typing this Thursday night. The boys are out of school on Friday in honor of Veteran’s Day…so I’m REALLY hoping to be sound asleep until much later in the day than I usually am on a Friday (making sure my oldest is up and dressed by 6:15am to head to the bus stop is wearing my old bones out fast, lol)

I’m sure it’s a beautiful morning for a fabulous new release, though…which is a good thing, because I have a wonderful new set of templates just waiting to help you get creative!

Chevron Love Template Pack
Includes 4 layered templates in PSD, TIF, individual PNG file formats, and PAGE file formats

Check out the gorgeous layouts by my oh so talented CT members (seriously, I am in awe each week with what those ladies do with the products I create!)

I also have a beautiful freebie for you today, but before I share it, I wanted to take a quick moment to get a little personal 🙂  Each month, I try my best to send out customer loyalty coupons to those who made a purchase from me during the previous month.  I know it may not always seem like much – but it’s done out of pure gratitude for those I am sending it to.  It is because of those customers that I’m able to do what I enjoy, have a creative outlet for my feelings and emotions, and make a little money each month. One of the ladies who received this month’s coupon seemed overly thankful, mentioning that she wasn’t sure she had ever received such a coupon from another designer before.  And that made me somewhat sad.  I won’t fault any of the designers she may have purchased from before — we all get busy and forgetful, and perhaps they just missed her.  But, it made me remember that perhaps I, as a designer, don’t say thank you enough for reading my blog, following my Facebook page/group, purchasing my products, etc.  I try to provide small freebies, as often as possible (and my CT ladies do a fabulous job keeping me stocked with those!) — but perhaps sometimes, I really just need to say the words…Thank You.  Whether you’ve purchased from me once, multiple times, or not at all.  Whether you download all of the freebies or just a few.  Whether you follow me as many places as possible or only check in here or there.  I appreciate you.  And, for all that you do to allow me the opportunity to take this designer journey, I thank you.
