Smuggler’s Notch Trail – Refreshed & On Sale

Smuggler’s Notch Trail – Refreshed & On Sale

My husband and I visit Vermont frequently; we have family there AND it is a beautiful state with many wonderful places to visit. When I think of Vermont my mind immediately sees the amazing blaze of colors that cover the mountains in autumn, the lodge fireplace and the horse-drawn sleighs at Stowe in winter, and food…homemade applesauce and pancakes dripping with butter and maple syrup, and rich white cheddar from Cabot.

One of the BEST places to trek (my opinion only LOL) is a narrow path through thousand-foot cliffs, once a smuggling route for Vermont rum runners into Canada, and now a park used for biking, hiking, picnicking and rock climbing. Smugglers Notch road is closed by snow in winter and is not kept open for vehicles, so only those with skis or snowshoes can get through. The Smugglers Notch ski resort is on the north side of the notch; to get there in winter you must drive all the way around the mountain.

Smuggler’s Notch Trail has been “refreshed” and is available in all of my stores.  I’ve also returned it to the original intro pricing through April 14th.

The Smugglers Notch Trail Bundle by ADB Designs includes 7 packs:

  • Page Kit
  • Add-On Mini
  • Image Papers
  • Vintage Solids
  • Stacked Papers
  • CU Victorian Butterflies
  • And an EXCLUSIVE BONUS pack of Filigree Maple Leaves

Smuggler’s Notch Trail Featured Layout

I chose Germany, 1983 by Lana as the featured layout.  I love how she used the frames to show a variety of photos but the way she masked out the top layer of paper really made this page unique.  In fact, I loved it so much, I made a quick page out of it.  You can download it below and put your own creative touches on it.

Antiques Emporium – Digital Scrapbook Bundle

Antiques Emporium released a few years ago in my stores but I’ve just refreshed the previews and added it to my store at Gingerscraps.  I’m sure we all have our “favorites”.  Favorite clothes, favorite shoes, favorite foods… Over the next few months I’m going to be adding some of my favorite products to my Gingerscraps store but if you are loyal to one of my other stores, you won’t miss out.  I’m turning back the prices for a short time in each store in case you missed these the first time around.

Antiques Emporium is one of my favorites.  Even as a child, I loved being surrounded by vintage trinkets, heirloom china, and most anything you find in a cluttered display case.  I had no idea at the time that I would cherish to memories and use them many years later to design scrapbook elements and papers.

There are plenty of treasures inside the page kit.  131 Elements including a cash register, typewriter, compass, peacock feather, sextant, pharmacy bottles, spoons, a tea set, a washtub, and much more.  If you enjoy making clusters for your pages, you’ll love the selection of elements in Antiques Emporium.


The Antiques Emporium Bundle includes 10 packs:  Full Size Page Kit, Mini Kit, Clusters, Blendables, Alpha Pack, Pocket Journal Cards, Quick Pages, Stacked Papers, Pattern Papers, and Newsprint Solids.

Antiques Emporium Featured Layout

Do you ever fall in love with a kit but you don’t have the perfect photo?  Or maybe you do but you choose to skip the scrapbook page and create something that simply feeds your creativity?  The featured layout today is that kind of page.  I love the journaling and very creative use of the elements.  This page is definitely worthy of a frame.

Each week I feature a favorite layout.  These are usually layouts by my awesome Creative Team but I would be delighted to feature YOUR layouts too.  If you have a special layout you want to share simply email me or post it to my facebook page.  I am always thrilled to see how you turn papers and elements into forever memories.

Bygone Baby Featured Layouts

I usually feature one layout by a creative team member but this week there are two.  Dana used the banner alphas to start an alphabet book.  I think it is so precious!  This would make a beautiful keepsake but imagine adding a few photos of fruit or animals and turning this into a learning book.

Rochelle’s Sepia layout is the featured page for the Hygge Collection.  I chose this page because it focuses on the photo but the added border, paper pieces, and cluster are a beautiful addition.  This layout is simple, yet elegant.
