Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer’s Life: Brandy Murry

Growing up in a small town in Georgia, we learned to live from the heart. We were a family of females with Momma being the center of our universe. She is the sun, moon and stars to us girls. Sandwiched in the middle of two sisters was a great place to grow up. Though we didn’t have much, there was always yummy southern food and loads of lively chatter and, above all, we loved each other....

Life Muses by Ro: Corner the Notebook Market

“Corner the notebook market,” the wise man said, “and you will never lack for ideas.”

“Why is this so, oh man of deep thoughts?” the pupil humbly said. “Is it not true that notebooks, by themselves, are known for their blank attribute?”

Life Muses by Ro: Room for Love

Close your eyes. Imagine that there is a big ball in your chest. Feel it draw together from every pore and limb in your body until it is a solid, round thing. It may end up being the size of a baseball. It may be as big as a basketball. But feel it, sense it, and see it in your chest.

Now that you have it, you have two options....

Life Muses by Ro: African Safari

To someone who lives in a middle class neighborhood, plunked in the middle of Utah suburbia, our own Gillian Hurst lives a very exotic life. You have to read this post she made recently in the Scrap Girls Blog. Okay... well... I’ll never do anything like this. But because of my association with Scrap Girls around the world, I can get in on the action vicariously. And so can you!

Life Muses by Ro: It's a Camel

Place this image in your mind: A camel in a pink tutu dances across your brain singing, “I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair...”

Customer Muse: Music in the House

I don’t remember exactly when the music stopped. I know it was during the period that our new house construction was way over budget, with no end in sight. One day there was music. The next day there wasn’t.

 

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Note from Ro: Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to [email protected]. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!

Ro is now spotlighting various Scrap Girls members, showing layouts, and running contests in her blog. If you end up being spotlighted in it, you'll get a little gift from her. Subscribe to her blog so you don't miss what is going on!

Ro has recently spotlighted Pireps, CharleneJ and Soozlou.

“Look Up To You” layout by Janine Buckles

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To blend the large picture of my husband and Evan into my background, I selected the thumbnail image of it in the Layers Palette and set the Blend Mode to "Soft Light." It’s amazing how something so simple can create such an “Oh, aren’t you clever!” look! Give it a try!

Tutorials and Articles
Themed Thoughts: Graduation

We’ve noticed various requests popping up here and there on the message boards, people looking for themed items in collections. Even though our fabulous designers are great at taking requests, they can only do so much! So, to tide you over until they can get to everybody's requests, we’ve come up with an article to help you use those great Scrap Girls products you already have (or should have!) in your stash for these types of themes.

Designer Do-Over: Kara Swanson

When I first started scrapbooking digitally, one of my first purchases was Thao Cosgrove's Friendship Collection. I loved the richly patterned paper and exquisite embellishments, and I could see that this collection was very versatile. My first layout with it was called “Love” and included an Easter photo of my family.

I still love this collection, but I've learned so much about digital scrapbooking and the principles of design over the past year. I want to update this layout to reflect my current style, yet retain what I really loved about using Thao's collection – namely the contrast between the bright and muted colors.

Tutorial: Using Blend Modes With Type to Create Visual Dimension

A great way to add dimension on your digital scrapbooking layouts is to use Blend Modes on your type layer. Follow along as Product Designer Amanda McGee shows you how easy it is!

Way Cool Stuff Product Review: Assemble Your Own: 4x6 Zoom Pages

This is a really busy time of year for a lot of people... Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day get-togethers, end of school and Graduations... how great would a handmade gift be for a loved one, favorite teacher, or friend? It’s a great time for capturing memories, but maybe not the best time for scrapping them. Sometimes, we just need something beautiful that’s ready-made to get a project done quickly, or even just to give us a creative nudge.

Well, as I have come to realize, the Assemble Your Own product line is a quick and simple tool to get your projects done quickly, and the 4x6 products in particular make it easy to do at home or through your favorite printing service, inexpensively.

Tutorial: Selective Color Removal

I love to make a contrast between color and black and white areas in my photos. It’s useful to focus attention on an area of the picture you want to emphasize or, perhaps, to remove colors that you don’t feel complement your chosen materials, such as digital scrapbooking paper or embellishments. Product Designer Gillian Hurst will walk you through this simple technique!

- MORE Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed! for Adobe Photoshop Elements versions 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 & 6.0

It's time for you to stop playing catch-up in Photoshop and start having a blast doing the more advanced tricks that you see other people and professional digital scrapbookers doing.

  • Take the world's easiest shortcuts to creating your own backgrounds, embellishments, and alphas.
  • Make sure that you don't make the biggest mistakes that digital scrapbookers make when they create layouts.
  • Learn fantastic tricks for using Scrap Girls ScrapSimple products.
  • Dip your digital scrapbooking self into some of those "other" cool tools that are sitting there waiting in your software for you to use such as paths, masks, the drawing pen, and more.
  • See how easy it is to install and manage new Custom Shapes and Styles in Photoshop so that you can make things that are creative and unique.
  • Learn advanced tricks for using tools that you already know and love.
  • Watch me make some beautiful papers and get a chance to peek inside of my layers. (Oh dear... That is the last frontier and I might be out of my mind to let you do it... NOBODY likes people to see inside of their layers. It is like having visitors peek inside of your dresser drawers. Very private stuff.)
  • See a new way for coloring doodles. (I'm betting that it will surprise you what tool I've used to do that with, too...)
  • Get "IN" on creating your own brush sets. (You do NOT have to have those impossibly long brush sets frustrating you anymore. In fact, when you learn this trick, you will wonder why you haven't been using it all along.)
  • Find out why Custom Shapes are so important to you. (Bet you didn't know...)
  • Learn how to cut out a title from a background or a photo.
  • And even more...

Note: These are NOT beginning tutorials. If you get this training and you have never used Photoshop before or if you aren't pretty sure of yourself in the software, you are going to be lost. You simply have to understand layers, where things are located, and all of the basic, important skills that Ro teaches in her Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed series before you try to use it.

Protect your files with Carbonite Online Backup

Ro personally uses Carbonite to back up her computer. While it won't backup external hard-drives, it is a fabulous solution for keeping all of your important documents on your C:/ drive safe and your backups completely up-to-date at all times. Using it has made her stop worrying about losing important business and financial files, because the backup happens without Ro having to do a single thing.

Acronis True Image 10.0

Buy True Image 11.0 from Acronis Today!

Hard drives do fail. Don't think they won't and that you will escape from it happening to you forever. Just get a plan for managing what will happen someday and save yourself a lot of pain, sweat, agony and tears.

You need several methods of backing up in case one of them fail. Acronis True Image 11.0 is Ro's personal choice for creating a complete back up (software, operating system, settings... you name it) of her hard drives. It is easy to use (no excess geek speak) which is why she is recommending it to you.
