Brain Freeze & Don’t Bug Me!

A new month means new releases and a LOT of wonderfully fun things to talk about!
First up, Christina of Wimpychompers and I teamed up to bring you the August Daily Download at GingerScraps.  Make sure you follow along with the GingerScraps blog each day to download all 31 zip files full of awesomeness!  Here’s a quick sneak peek to give you an idea of what’s coming from this month’s Daily Download:

Super cute, eh?  And, it’s jam packed with yummy goodness you do NOT want to miss out on! :)
We’re also hosting the August Designer Spotlight Challenge.  It’s a great way to earn points for an awesome free kit. Score! :)  All you have to do is create a layout using products from Wimpychompers or I (or combine products from both of us for even more layout awesomeness) and post in the August Designer Spotlight Challenge thread.  To help those who might be new to my products (or would just like to pick up another great kit to use), I’ve got my GingerScraps store on sale for the first few weeks of August:

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.

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):

Count The Ways

Six plus hours in the swimming pool yesterday left me incredibly red (I used sunscreen, but I guess I didn’t re-apply it frequently enough?) and incredibly exhausted.  Despite a several hour nap yesterday evening, I still didn’t crawl out of bed until almost 11 this morning!  Thank heavens for lazy summer days and a husband (and kids!) who lets me sleep in!

Despite my exhaustion today, I know I made some wonderful memories with my boys yesterday.  And in a world as fast paced and crazy as ours is, those moments we spend slowing down and just enjoying those around us and remembering what makes us love them so are so very important!

How much do you love the people pictured in your scrapbook pages? Let us Count The Ways, and name them one by one. Count The Ways is a beautiful new kit by Blue Heart Scraps, perfect for showing our thankfulness for those who make our heart complete. Kit includes:

20 beautifully textured papers (7 plain, 13 patterned), 1 full alpha (uppercase, lowercase, numbers and some punctuation) and 85 elements for your scrapping pleasure!

Also available are coordinating clusters and paint smatters:


Or, grab the bundle and save!  The Count The Ways Bundle is on sale for just $4.50!

Sneak Peek & Chance To Win!

Happy, Happy Hump Day!  The summer is flying by at an impossibly fast rate.  it’s hard for me to believe my boys will be back in school in less than a month — and the fact that they will be 4th and 2nd graders is even MORE unbelievable!  This whole growing thing, it happens too fast! So, it’s important to remember the precious moments we have with people while they’re around…because they won’t always be.  And, I think this week’s new release does a fantastic job of letting you remember exactly why you love someone! :)
