A few new things at Gingerscraps

Photocowgirl has some new templates called Layers of Happiness!  I just love how unique these are.  These are the multi-photo ones


Beauty isn't always polished and perfect; sometimes it is worn and weathered and involves things that stand the test of time. This new kit by Unforgettable Moments will highlight your memories with a touch of rustic charm! The men in your life will appreciate this kit also since the content of this kit is more on the masculine side. With 30 elements, 17 papers, and two full alphas this kit is PACKED with rustic goodness! Regularly priced at $5.00, but through this weekend you can get Rustic Charm for $4.00.

Rustic Charm The Full Kit



For your convenience Paper, The Elements, and the Alpha are also all sold separately (and are each on sale for $1.50 until Sunday). There is also a Rustic Charm quick page set available as well! The beautifully scrapped quick page set is now on sale for $2.00.

Charity Collab at 9th and bloom

 "A dream you dream alone is only a dream.
A dream you dream together is reality."
~John Lennon

The reality of 37 Designers coming together for one precious little girl is what you see here before you. We share the dream with 1 Mother and 1 little girl, we hope you will too. The dream is to be able to afford a very costly surgery to help a little girl with Cerebral Palsy walk. A gift that so many of us posses and so many of us take for granted. Vicky's Mother, Tzvetelina, will not stop believing that things for Vicky can and will improve. We won't stop believing either.
It is our hope that you see the sun shining in on this cheery kit the way we see the sun shining on the face of sweet Vicky and you will extend a hand to help. In turn you get this gorgeous mega collab bundle that will give you lots of opportunities to cherish your own precious memories.
100% of proceeds from this kit will go directly to Vicky's Mother, Tzvetelina.

Nikki has a new set of templates out this week. They are Sweet Starts Volume 17 and they are square cuts. I love the little cut out holes and how the background paper can peek through the tiny squares.
