GingerScraps Welcomes Gotta Pixel

Hello and welcome to GingerScraps!

 

First and foremost I want to express my gratitude to Stacy (the owner of Gotta Pixel). Gotta Pixel has been a stand out site in our community for the last 11 years and I am so very sorry to see it go. Once Stacy made the difficult decision to close up shop she contacted me and we have been working together to make this transition as smooth for everyone as possible. 

 

I would like to give you a quick bit of info about GingerScraps 

 

My name is Ginger (thus the very clever name of GingerScraps, lol). I started GingerScraps as a blog to post about the digi scrap world and share my scrapbook pages. It slowly grew into the place it is now, a full service digi community, shop, gallery and forum. The mission of GingerScraps is to be a supportive and encouraging community dedicated to our shared love of the scrapbooking art. Here are a few highlights of our site you will want to check out. 

  • WELCOME WAGON: Once you register in the forum your will have access to the Welcome Wagon. The Welcome Wagon is a spot where designers post free goodies for the forum members. For a limited time I will have a special Welcome goodie for newcomers from Gotta Pixel!
  • THE GINGERSCRAPS NEWSLETTER: Sign up for our newsletter! The perfect place to find out about all the sales, events, and new products!
  • CHALLENGES: Each month our designers host a variety of scrapbooking challenges. They are a great way to get to know the designers, community and inspire your creativity! If you complete enough challenges for the month you will earn free goodies!
  • GINGERSCRAPS BLOG: Lots going on daily over at the GS blog! We have tutorials, feature articles and a Daily Download where you can collect a full kit from our monthly featured designer.
  • OUR SHOP: Full of delicious scrapbooking products! We have new releases weekly (every Friday) Look in the "Fresh Baked" section for the newest releases.
  • MONTHLY BAKE SALE: Each month (from the 15-20th) we have a $1.00 Bake Sale, offering a variety of items all for only $1.00! Mark it on your calendar as you will not want to miss these amazing deals!
  • BUFFET: Shop in The Buffet! "The GingerScraps Buffet is an All You Can Eat .... or rather Scrap, lol, Buffet. Each month the amazing GingerBread Ladies will be given a color palette, and they will create delicious goodies for you. Then you can mix and match, 'till your hearts content! Think of it like a way to totally customize a Mega Collab, "eat" as little or as much as you would like, after all ... you can indulge all day long and it never counts towards your calories for the day 

In closing I would like to pass on a personal message from Stacy (the owner of Gotta Pixel) to you,

"Gotta Pixel started as a hobby, and turned into a passion. This was… is my baby. For 11 years, everything that I was and am revolved around this business. I have met so many incredible people along the way.  They have become a part of my life. I've celebrated births, weddings, life milestones, and recently mourned the loss of Michelle (Loofah) who was one of our original members.

A lot has changed.  The industry has changed.  I have changed. The introvert who was once content working from home turned into someone who is now helping to run a 20 year old dog supply company, heavily involved in her startup community and mentoring other businesses. 

Because of these changes and some costly technology issues that required us to remove our forum and gallery, I have regretfully made the decision to close down Gotta Pixel.

I wanted to make sure that our members had a home to go to.  I have worked with Ginger in the past and have always respected the business she has built as well as the community that supported it.  I trust that she will take care of the legacy that has been created over the last 11 years.  Since many of the designers who are at Gotta Pixel area were already located at Ginger Scraps, I knew that it would be a perfect new home.

If you have questions specifically about Gotta Pixel, please visit http://www.gottapixel.net/help/ and we will be happy to answer them.  Otherwise Ginger and her team can help you get to know Ginger Scraps and all the wonderful things it has to offer."
