Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer’s Life: Cherise Oleson

I recently read an article that suggested that the key to happiness is two–fold: 1) show compassion to others and 2) celebrate creativity. The author suggested that if we are feeling down, frustrated or just not happy about life, these are the things that we can focus on to lift us out of the doldrums. We should seek out someone who is in need and find a way to serve him. We should also try to find some specific way that we can be creative.

Life Muses by Ro: Very Funny

I heard Ryan Seacrest say, “And now, Randy will give his second wildcard pick...”

Rushing into the room, I gasped, “You aren’t watching American Idol without me, are you?”

Life Muses by Ro: The Mighty Clouds

Hogging the sky, the clouds moved across the valley, thick and grey and ready to pounce. The sun tried to shine upon the valley, but the clouds refused to show it the least bit of courtesy. The stars attempted to twinkle and shine, but even the brightest star of all couldn’t penetrate the thick quilt of clouds.

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Someone She Met Online

Note from Ro: I was so surprised by this post on the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Adventures blog by Thao Cosgrove. What an interesting story!

Life Muses by Ro: The Sound of Quiet

At the end of a long, hard day, I collapsed on the floor by my bed and began to pray. I felt as if I was going to burst into a million pieces. My head was spinning and my mind was reeling. My soul was tired.

Customer Muse: Be Present

I consider myself lucky to be able to remember my dreams. Sometimes, it’s a faint recollection and, sometimes, detailed moments are right in my face. For the most part, I have good dreams. Sometimes, if I don’t have a good dream, I need to fall back asleep so that it doesn’t leave a foul feeling in my heart that affects my day. That luxury has dwindled, however, now that I have kids.

 

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 Soozlou, mtorres_usa, and teabaglady!

Important to Know: Retirement Sale

We've just opened a Retirement Sale section of the Boutique. Items in this section are always on sale for 30% off. The items you will find during any particular month will be discontinued permanently on the 5th of the following month. So if you see something you like, grab it while you can!

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I wanted the border of Melanie Johnson’s paper from her Childhood Memories Collection Biggie to be repeated at the bottom. I duplicated the paper layer, rotated it 90° clockwise and applied a layer mask to isolate the colored circles and make both papers overlap under the bottom right photo.

Question: Can we wrap text around a circle in Paint Shop Pro (PSP)? I saw a layout in the boutique with this technique, but I can’t find it now.

Answer 1: We sure can! Which version of PSP are you using?

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Adding Texture to ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Brush Strokes

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Brush Strokes are a great way to create interesting focal point photos for your digital scrapbooking layouts. They are even more fun and versatile when you add texture. Doing so is quick and easy.

Way Cool Stuff Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Layer Your Own Brushes

Do you like value for your money? I do! Layer Your Own Brushes are a great value for your money. They are extremely versatile and easy to use. What I like most about them is how easy it is to use them to create your own embellishments. You are not limited to using all of the parts. I often use individual parts of these adaptable brushes.

Digital Scrapbook Tutorial: Creating a Mother's Day Card With ScrapSimple Card Templates

New Classes Available!

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, April 1rst - 12:00Noon ET

NSBR Chat - Early Edition
Thursday, April 2nd - 4:00PM ET

What is NSBR? It's a non-scrapbooking related chat! We talk about everything, including some scrapbooking and usually chocolate. It's a great chance to meet new friends, catch up on what everyone is up to, and just relax! If you have a problem, we'll lend an ear or a shoulder to cry on. Have some great news to share? We'd love to celebrate with you. So Michelle (Shelbi) and Shari (Shari PV Mom), at 4pm ET, in the chat room Lobby! Hope to see you there!

div

What's New Chat
Friday, April 3rd - 11:00AM ET

Join Michelle (Shelbi) and Becca at 11am ET to chat about all the cool new things in the boutique. What are you getting? What did you kaboodle? And most importantly show us the layouts or other projects you made with your new goodies! There’s a thread every Thursday and now there’s a chat too!

div

Quote Challenge & Chat
Sunday, April 5th - 4:00PM ET

Come join Pat (PBarnes) for the Quote Challenge Crop at 4pm ET! Including a quote on your layout can be a touching and meaningful addition, especially if you use the quote to create your own word art.

Here's how it will work. On Sunday, I'll post a thread on the Chat section of the board giving you the quote that you can use to make your own word art. It's not hard, and I will have a layout with a word art example in the gallery. Then we'll meet in the chat room to have fun, chat, and create our word art layouts!

Card Chat
Monday, April 6th - 8:00PM ET

Join Michelle (Shelbi) and Ngaire for our new monthly chat. Do you use your digital supplies to make cards? Do you want to?

This month, we'll be working on Easter cards. See you there!

div

NSBR Chat

div

Keeping Current Crop
Tuesday, April 7th - 4:00PM ET

Join AngRoCamp for the Keeping Current Crop at 4pm ET. Don't let those photos pile up and become frustrating or overwhelming.

So grab the last photos that are still hanging out on your camera's memory card and get to work so you can say with confidence "I'm current!"
