Bundle Up for the Great White North

Welcome to another month and another new theme on Gingersnap Creations! For December, in honor (or should I write honour) of our Canadian neighbors ("neighbours" up there), we are celebrating the Great White North*!

As it is the Winter season, we'll be playing with bleach and bleaching techniques to make some snow-white fun!

We've also got some great guests coming up! This month, Samantha Read and Terry Horrall will be joining us for the first time as Visiting Artists! Maria "Rinda" Ontiveros is returning as a Visiting Artist for December! All of these talented papercrafters will be joining the The Gingers with creating marvelous inspiration samples for our December challenges!

Once again, we have a packed month ahead of us with lots of great posts to keep us all busy through the holiday season:

~ our 4 regular challenges: Chestnut Theme, Spicy Supply, Random Redhead and Color

~ 4 great wrap-ups with more amazing Ginger Gem art and 4 new Home Page Artists

~ another wonderful column from our Contributing Artist, Jennie of The Artistic Stamper

~ a whole batch of new tutorials from Gingers Jo Capper-Sandon, Sharon Briss, Debby Boltman and Petra Berendsen

~ another great post from Contributing Artist, Lucy Edmondson

~ Alison Manning will put her own twist on one of our prior tutorials with a brand-new Technique Workshop

~ another fun Creative Connection will challenge you to craft it forward

and finally,

~ the Once in a Blue Moon Challenge returns with a surprise challenge from The Gingers
