What's in Store in June?

We are going Shopping in June with a focus on using packaging materials in our art! Join us in our tribute to retail therapy!

Along with our new theme, we are welcoming a brand-new sponsor to Gingersnap Creations - Altered Pages! They have some fabulous prizes in store for you this month! Joining in on our challenge fun this month, the Altered Pages Design Team will be showing you their take on our June challenges on Thursdays throughout the month!

We have the pleasure of once again sharing the art of Kim Dellow with you! She is our fabulous June Muse! We'll be spending more time with Kim over this month, but if you want a peak at her art, you need to visit her blog, Crafty Makes.
