Romance is in the Air

You'll just love our Romance theme this month! Not only will we be looking at the loveliness of love but we'll also focus on using some romantic elements - lace and fibers - in our creations during February!

We are happy to welcome The Artistic Stamper as our Challenge Sponsor for February!

Here's a sneak peak at what you can expect:

~ an exclusive interview with Jennie, the owner of The Artistic Stamper
~ Jennie will also be visiting the blog to show off some of her beautiful art. To get a glimpse of her fabulous style, please visit her blog - The Artistic Stamper blog
~ a mid-month Valentine's blog hop with artists from our own Design Team with a fun giveaway thrown in
~ 4 new challenges: Chestnut Theme, Spicy Supply, Color, and Random Redhead Challenges
~ postings of our Redhead Review and interview guides
~ a fabulous tutorial from our own Erika Taylor; and
~ the ever-popular Reasons to Stamp feature

Don't forget to join in on our weekly Wednesday challenges! You'll adore the amount of time you have to participate in each one - just over 3 weeks per challenge!

As we mentioned last month, we now pick 5 Ginger Gems, creations we feel really exemplified that challenge's objective, for each challenge as well as our randomly drawn winner! We're having a lot of fun with our Ginger Gems so far! January was a great month and we can't wait to see all the Gems for February! Check our sidebar for the latest picks!

Our Yahoo Group had fun with the first set of exclusive projects in January! Here's a glimpse of what we were up to last month.

We started with a tilted mats challenge. You can see some of the fine entries below.

We also had an inspiration project to create calendars. Here's a few of the projects that were submitted.

And last, but not least, we had a challenge based on last month's Redhead Review of the Scrapbooker's Creativity Kit. The idea was to take two colors - lilac and medium red - and to pair them with one of the following prompts - hot, shine, precious or hurry - and make any kind of creation you wanted.

I think long-time Gingersnap Yahoo Group member Judy of Judy's Crazy for Cards Spot did an amazing job on this one and her card is shown below!

  1. I'm already loving February's Romance theme - I couldn't wait, I posted my first card a day early! :-)

    I can tell this is already going to be another FABULOUS month to be a Ginger Snapper ...

    And how cool is the upcoming postcard swap? I will be over to Yahoo first chance I get for more details...
