Free Font Fun: School Style

My boys started back to school this past Wednesday (yes, we start earlier and earlier each year *sigh*), so it’s all homework and early bed times and blaring alarms bright and early in the morning around my house right now. Sounds like loads of fun, right?!  But…it also means new school supplies, and that makes me HAPPY! (I LOVE school supplies!)
(my boys on their first day) 🙂
So, for today’s Free Font Fun, we’re going School Style with some fun and funky school themed fonts!
From an old typewriter inspired font to a cute pencil dingbat, I’m sure you’ll find at least something you like!

Interested in downloading one (or more!) of the fonts?  Simply click that specific font preview image below!


And, for your Wizardry fans, you need your own “Back To School” font, too! 😉
(now, back to reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child)


I Still Believe, Challenge & New Newsletter Nuggets Coming!

August 1st. Already. We obviously skipped a few days (weeks?!) in July, because I have NO idea where all of the time went!  A new month means a new GingerScraps buffet, though, so we might as well jump right into the goodies, because I’ve got a lot to tell you about!
First, though, be sure to check back here later in the week (say, Thursday), as I have a fun new guest store opening then, and an exclusive collection you might want to check out!

This month’s GingerScraps Buffet is full of bright colors — and was the perfect kit for my own personal state, as I try to fight back against the dark funk I’ve been suffering from the past month or so, and remind myself that even after all that’s happened, I Still Believe in me!

My I Still Believe Bundle is for positive thinkers, and hopeful dreamers, everywhere.
Part of the August 2016 GingerScraps Buffet, you can easily mix and match with other buffet packs!

The Bundle includes a pack of 68 elements, a pack of 18 patterned papers, a pack of 24 basic papers
and a pack of 12 journal cards — or you can pick up any of the packs individually!



I’m also bringing the I Dare You Challenge back to the Blue Heart Scraps Facebook Fan Page
(Have you joined us there? If not, click the link above and join us today!)  It’s been rather quiet around there lately (summer funk, kids home, etc), but they head back to school Wednesday, and I’m working on new plans and ideas to try and keep the joint rocking! 🙂

Here’s a sneak peek of this month’s challenge freebie, and the rules:

A new month also means a new set of Blue Heart Scraps Newsletter Nuggets — a group of exclusive freebie downloads each month, just for subscribers of my newsletter!  Not a subscriber yet? Join us today!

Here’s a peek of what’s coming this month:

July Buffet Overload!

Happy July 1st!  I can’t believe the year is half over already.  I know they say time flies when you’re having fun, but I think the older I get, the faster it goes.  If there’s one good thing about a new month, it’s that it’s the start of another great GingerScraps Buffet, and that means lots of great new goodies to show you (and this month, I have double the goodness!)

First up is a kit inspired by (and requested by) a few of my fantastic Creative Team girls — something Disney inspired!  The individual packs are an excellent deal through the 5th of July, but the biggest savings come with the bundle.  Get the entire collection for just $5!


But, that’s not all!  I enjoyed the colors of this month’s buffet so much that I made a SECOND kit — I mean, just LOOK at these gorgeous colors!  And the kit’s just $2 through July 5th! (Individual Packs just $1 each)


Plus, there’s a beautiful coordinating add-on pack featured at this month’s Newsletter Nuggets.
What’s that you ask?  As a small Thank You for being a Blue Heart Scraps Newsletter Subscriber, every week I will send out a new freebie in my newsletter…by the end of the month, YOU will have a GREAT new mini kit that coordinates with one of my kits!  Here’s the preview of this month’s Newsletter Nugget:


Not a Blue Heart Scraps Newsletter Subscriber yet? No worries! This week’s newsletter has already hit mailboxes, but if you sign up today, you can catch up with the downloads next Friday!

And, last but not least, some fun Creative Team Inspiration for you to “Ooh” and “Aah” over! 😀


Shine On $5 Grab Bag!

Sometimes a product takes a while for me to plan and create in my head before I get started working in Photoshop. Other times? It all seems to just fall into place.  This week’s new $5 Grab Bag release, Shine On, is certainly the latter!  It started with a quote..
and the rest, as they say, is history.  Filled with bright colors, and lots of sparkly touches, Shine On is sure to put a smile on your face and add an extra touch of pizzazz to your layouts!

This amazing Grab Bag is available for $5.00 for a limited time only and contains:

14 basic papers (plain and glitter polka dot paper in all kit colors)
18 Patterned Papers
12 journal cards
69 elements, and
7 full sized glitter sheets and glitter style set



Check out just a few of the fantastic layouts using Shine On:


Turn Back Time $5 Grab Bag

Happy Friday!  It’s release day at GingerScraps, and I have fallen head over heels in love with this week’s release.  A little vintage, a little modern, a whole lot of gorgeousness (check out that purple!).  It’s obvious that time flies by far too fast, and sometimes we’d love to slow it down – even if for a moment – to savor the memories a little bit longer.  With my new $5 Grab Bag, Turn Back Time, you can scrap all of those wonderful memories!

iNSD Celebration & Goodies Galore!

Happy Friday, and welcome to the start of iNSD celebrations at GingerScraps!  Here’s a quick run down of all I have going on this next week:


And, then I’ll just skip right to the new goodies this week…because there are LOTS! 😀

This week I have 4, that’s right, FOUR $5 Grab Bags releasing!
Due to the insane number of things to show you this week, I’m going to skip previewing individual bundle packs.  But! Full previews can be found in the store for all grab bags, and images are linked! 🙂
First up, a theme after my own book-loving heart:


Second is a collab with Rachel of Seatrout Scraps that’s sure to put a smile on your face and some happiness in your layouts!


There’s a collab grab bag with Jennifer of Luv Ewe Designs that’s perfect for the little boys – or little girls – in your life


And, I have a perfectly timed Mother’s Day collab with Kiana of Love It Scrap It


Still not enough goodies at great prices for you?!  I’ve got a phenomenal 5-for-$5 Build Your Own Grab Bag Option in the store.  Any 5 kit and or packs from My GingerScraps Store (bundles, collabs and grab bags excluded) for just $5!  Can’t beat a deal like that!!!


My Creative Team completely knocked these bundles out of the park, completing nearly 60 layouts for me this past week or two.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to share them all with you (though, I could, because they’re all just that awesome!!!) — but you have to see at least SOME of the gorgeous work they’ve all created! 😀


Now, before you run to the GingerScraps store to buy ALL. THE. PRETTY. THINGS., be sure to check out the Blue Heart Scraps Facebook Page for a fun freebie as part of the GingerScraps 2016 iNSD Facebook Hop!  Here’s what you can download from me, before traveling down the rest of the list:


And, don’t forget, I’ll be in the GingerScraps chatroom Saturday morning at 10am CST for a fun speed scrap & chat (don’t worry, I’ll give you time to complete your layout!).  Would LOVE to see you there! 🙂

Buffet, Challenge, Sale & Freebies Galore!

Welcome to May!  I have so much goodness coming to you this month, I can barely contain the excitement!

I’m in the Designer Spotlight this month at GingerScraps, and that means lots of goodies for you!  Not only am I bringing you a FABULOUS free download kit (available in small downloads each day on the GingerScraps Blog), but if you “Like” the GingerScraps Facebook Page, you’ll find 2 exclusive freebies there this month from yours truly (the first freebie should be uploaded early this month, the second one mid-month).  Here’s a sneak peek of the Daily Download kit for this month:

Want even MORE freebies?!  I’ve got you covered!  Join me in the Blue Heart Scraps Facebook Fan Group for 4 exclusive freebies, one each Monday, all month long (coordinating with this month’s Daily Download kit)!

Plus, what’s a Designer Spotlight without a SALE?!  Save 40% (even MORE during iNSD celebrations!) off my GingerScraps Store ALL MONTH LONG!

Now, the first of the month always means a new GingerScraps Buffet — an all you can eat (or, well, scrap!) smorgasbord of gorgeous new scrapping goodies!  For this month’s buffet, I stepped out of my normal designing comfort box and created something vintage/heritage inspired (or about as close as I can).  My fantastic team of talented scrappers sure seemed to enjoy the break from my designing norm — hopefully YOU do, as well!

Timeless is available as a full kit (for $2 through May 5th) or as individual element or paper packs (each just $1 through May 5th)


Check out some of GORGEOUS layouts created with the new Timeless collection:
