Party in the USA Buffet & July Book Club

A new month always means a new Buffet Sale at GingerScraps (and internet issues yesterday means I didn’t get this posted).  This month’s bright blues and red and yellow just screamed patriotic to me!  So, I’m happy to introduce to you my portion of this month’s buffet, Party in the USA:

The kit above is on sale for just $2 through July 5th, or you can pick up the individual element pack and paper pack for just $1 each

I also have three gorgeous coordinating packs that you do NOT want to miss out on – AND, they’re just $1 each too through Sunday!  Check them out:

Plain & Ombre Papers, Journal Cards and Paint Smatters


Plus, if you’re an avid reader like me, you might enjoy joining me in the GingerScraps Hey Good Bookin’ Book Club!


This month’s book sounds harsh, but I’ve read lots of reviews (without trying to get into spoilers) and talked to someone who read the book, and they promise me it’s not as dark and sad as it sounds. In fact, Goodreads describes the book as:

“Compelling, witty, and refreshingly real, Suicide Notes is a darkly humorous novel from award-winning author Michael Thomas Ford that examines that fuzzy line between “normal” and the rest of us.”

Here is the synopsis of the book:

I’m not crazy. I don’t see what the big deal is about what happened. But apparently someone does think it’s a big deal because here I am. I bet it was my mother. She always overreacts.

Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year’s Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nutjobs. Clearly, this is all a huge mistake. Forget about the bandages on his wrists and the notes on his chart. Forget about his problems with his best friend, Allie, and her boyfriend, Burke. Jeff’s perfectly fine, perfectly normal, not like the other kids in the hospital with him. Now they’ve got problems. But a funny thing happens as his forty-five-day sentence drags on: the crazies start to seem less crazy.

Sound interesting?  Join us in the Book Club forum all month long for details and discussion!

Quiet Moments, Giveaway Winner & Chat!

It’s been a few weeks full of life lessons for me lately.  Learning where trust IS deserved, and where it ISN’T (which may be the hardest lesson ever!).  Learning who’s really important and who you can let go of.  Learning when it’s worth fighting to be around other, and when it’s time to go back home and enjoy your solitude.  And for me?  The last lesson has shown me that my solitude is so well deserved right now.  I think that’s where a lot of the inspiration for this week’s new release came from.

In this crazy, fast paced world we live in, it’s important to take a moment to ourselves from time to time. A moment to relax, reflect and remember what’s truly important. The Quiet Moments Kit by Blue Heart Scraps, with its beautifully textured papers and gorgeous elements, offers you the perfect opportunity to scrap those quieter moments in life.

Also available is a coordinating pack of templates:

And, thanks to my 50% off Summer Sale, the kit and templates, as well as most of my store, is currently 50% off!


Check out the gorgeous layouts created by my Creative Team girls, as well as some of the GingerScraps store CT:

Monday Freebie & 50% off Summer Sale!

Another weekend has come and gone, and boy did it happen fast around here!  I got several opportunities to spend quality time and make memories with my little family.  Saturday, I took the boys to watch the new movie, Inside Out (which was absolutely adorable, might I add – and the animated short at the beginning? Heartbreakingly precious!)  A nice dinner out, a yummy stop at Dunkin’ Donuts to make the boys happy, and a peaceful Father’s Day.  Not much to complain about around here!

In case you missed the blog post yesterday, I’m celebrating the start of Summer with a 50% off sale!


As we start out the new week, why not start it out on a happy, positive note and enjoy a little freebie!
