Hi, I am Mandy and I had so much fun working with this collab kit. I stayed in the purple color family with my layouts because my daughter loves purple. I am already planning a layout using more of the oranges. I love the versitility of this kit!

Pia here, with a wonderful kit, extra papers, patchwork papers and word art: Sew Sweet by Marie H Designs. It’s perfect if you got any sew related photo, also knitting or crocheteing. But the kit goes perfectly well with any photo as there are papers and elements that are not so sew related. Here below are the linked previews.

ST Penny (aka justpennys) :  I’m feel so fortunate to work with a variety of designers, and Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels’ recent release, Wisdom and Friendship, is just a small taste of what the wonderful designers have to offer here at GDS.

In Wisdom and Friendship by Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels, the owls are the cutest!  Check it out!



Here’s a couple of layouts that I created with Wisdom and Friendship by Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels.



Pia here with a new kit I have been working with. Wisdom and Friendship by Ginger Scraps N Pixels, a gorgeous kit with beautiful soft colours in pink, orange, brown and green. Wonderful papers and elements and if you buy the kit you get the clusters for free, and they are just terrific. There is also a great alpha included. Below are my layouts.
