Gallery Stand Outs – August 27, 2015

WOW!!!  So, August is done…how did that happen so fast???  I really, really, really dislike time zooming by!!!  Thank goodness I take a lot of pictures so I can remember what we did.  Thankfully my phone marks it with the date – that’s the hardest part…remembering WHEN it happened!

So…last week JoyLynn released a new template pack called Come Together.  I am a LOVER of templates – and I love the versatility of these in particular, so that’s what I wanted to focus on this week…versatility of a template!

Welcome to Hilo


So clever with the “photo spot” as journaling and the “white space” THE picture!  Absolutely beautiful!!!!!

Sci-fi Diner


And just because there is “only one” photo spot doesn’t mean you can’t add more!!!  Such a cool layout…

Me and you


This layout is simply….simple and perfect!  (this is also using the kit Me+You=Love – it’s a spectacular kit!!!)

Broken Bones


Another example of simplicity (using a collab kit called Owie Collaboration with Luv Ewe Designs).



I love this one….I love all the green!!!  Another great use of a “one photo spot” template, by using 2 photos!!!

Here is the template kit:

Come Together Vol. 1


Pick it UP – it’s on sale at GingerScraps!!!  And help your layouts…Come Together!!!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!




Come Together Vol. 1

I’m kind of in love with this week’s release! :)

Give your creative juices a jump start, and let the layout “Come Together” with this great new template set. Includes two 12×12 templates, saved as layered PSD & TIF files as well as individual PNG files.

Come Together Vol. 1 available at both my GingerScraps Store and my Plain Digital Wrapper Guest Store

Check out the gorgeous layouts!


Congrats to this week’s Sneak Peek winner, Chili Olson Kim.  I’ll email you later today to let you know how you can grab your free template pack! :)

Final GSO for July 2015!!!!!

Happy End of July, Everyone!  We are just that much closer to school starting, back on track, and the kids “happy” to see their friends…just about as HAPPY  as we are that they are out of the house!  If only we can survive the HEAT!!!!!

Anywho….DON’T FORGET!  These are the LAST 2 DAYS of Blue Heart Scraps product retirement sale!!!!   Don’t miss out!!!



Now….let’s get to some MUCH DESERVED Gallery Shout OUTS!!!!!

You have to know that a lot of what you may see is from the GingerScraps Survivor game (going on now)….and Week One was hysterical!  LOVED seeing all the ladies as pirates!!!  The best part – JoyLynn came out with Get Kraken just in time….

Shiver Me Timbers


Happy Birthday David!

Be A Pirate






Pirate Mischief


Ok…I think you get the idea – but they are so much fun…and some of us were really pushed out of our comfort zone by having to scrap about ourselves!

I wanted to show off some of the layouts from That’s What Friends Aren’t For…because we don’t always think about scrapping about the “unhappy” times, but maybe we should – to heal.

Best Friends?






See…not all of the layouts were sad – and don’t forget, you can use kits for so many other reasons besides what their name describes.

For your review:

Get Kraken


That's What Friends Aren't For


Keep posting wonderful layouts – and SURVIVE!!!!!

Until August, my friends!!!!

That’s What Friends Aren’t For!

I’ve had quite an emotional summer.  What felt like the best friendship I had been a part of in a long, long time came to a horribly fast, horribly sad ending.  It’s been difficult, and sad, and heartbreaking, and stressful.  But, unfortunately, that’s how things go sometimes.

Friendships are beautiful, wonderful, glorious things…when they work out. And, when they don’t? We’re left with heartache and disappointment and a reminder of all the things friends wouldn’t leave you feeling. Why scrap these broken, forgotten friendships? Because it’s part of our history, and working through those feelings can help us to heal and to grow. Besides, our memories of those good times don’t change, the people do.

That’s What Friends Aren’t For is perfect for scrapping about those friendships that leave us hurt and brokenhearted…but versatile enough to scrap many other wonderful pages, as well. Kit includes 20 beautifully textured papers and 58 elements

Check out some of the gorgeous layouts created with this beautiful new kit (both using the theme and not):
