Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer’s Life: Syndee Nuckles

A few months back, I was given a red, spiral–bound journal. My family had decided to write some of the things they love most about me. Since they are the ones that know me best, they can maybe explain me a bit better than I can. Oprah had suggested this on her show one day when my hubby Bren had been surfing the channels. I would have to say that this is the best gift my family could have ever given me. I am well and truly blessed!

Life Muses by Ro: Life ROI

Yesterday, I told you about ROI – Return on Investment. (Article: Into a Tunnel of Light) While I was speaking in terms of a business making sure that there is a benefit to whatever they are doing in that article, it got me thinking about a larger question:

What is the ROI for my own life?

Life Muses by Ro: Life Lessons from a Truck

I smelled it first. It smelled like something in my truck was burning. I looked around, didn’t see anything, so I kept going. The engine warning light was on, but it had been on for nearly a year, so I wasn’t concerned.

The smell got worse. I lifted my nose higher in the air, hoping that it could locate the source of the odor. While I sniffed, I kept going.

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Homemade Lacing Cards

Note from Ro: Cherise, I have to tell you that this is a cool idea. Julianne would have loved these when she was a little girl. Too bad I didn’t think of it in time!

Life Muses by Ro: Filling the Tank

Sometimes, the well is dry, the glass is empty, the tank needs gas, and the pantry is bare. There are occasions when you need to go grocery shopping, eat supper, fill up the squirt bottle, and pour juice into the cup. There are days when we feel blank because we have used ourselves up, expended our energy, ran until our shoes fall off, or emptied the shampoo bottle.

Customer Muse: JoAnn Wells

When I look back over 2008, I am reminded of the Queen’s words many years ago when she described her year as, “annus horribilis.” 2008 started with one of those situations that goes from bad to worse in my workplace. It did not end in my favor, so I had to reflect long and hard about my future. Fortunately, I arrived at the conclusion that bad things sometimes happen, but then we simply have to move on. My personal life was not that great either and my prayers to God were filled with pleas for my family life and my work situation to find a more stable ground.

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:

When finalizing this layout, it appeared that the alphas looked too flat against the brushwork. I applied a small outer glow from the Layer Styles in Photoshop Elements, then added Sarah Batdorf’s “Large – Color Match” option from her ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Basic Shadows 6501.

Tutorials and Articles
Scrap Girls Club Concepts

April’s Scrap Girls Club’s featured designer is Syndee Nuckles. Her club is full of beautiful products that can help you document your photos and get creative in amazing ways. Our entire Scrap Girls staff has put their heads together and come up with some ideas to help you get the most out of your fun, new digital scrapbooking toys!

Here’s some ideas that are super simple for Mother’s Day. They will work well for any special woman – mom, grandma, aunt, teachers...

Best of the Message Board

Question: Is there any reason to upgrade to PSE 7 from PSE 5? I do run Vista 64 bit. Thanks for your input.

Answer 1: I really can’t advise you about upgrading to PSE 7 because this is the first PSE program I’ve had and I just can’t compare it with the other two versions. I just want to tell you that it runs perfectly with Vista 64 bit. I should add that it’s almost always been my software philosophy to go with the latest version. More often than not, I’ve been happy with that choice. Even if a new program has a bug, there’s usually a patch available pretty quickly.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Mix ScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Altered Photos 8201 to Obtain New Photo Tinting Effects

ScrapSimple Tools - Actions: Altered Photos PS 8201 contains six different actions. Two of the actions create an additional layer, which gives your photos a new look. That’s eight different photo effects. The action duplicates the original file, so you’ll never alter the original. All actions leave your image unflattened, which allows you to customize the final effect to your liking.

Way Cool Stuff Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Alpha Templates

Using these templates allows us to change the color, look and feel of the alpha to suit our layout. The beauty of ScrapSimple Alpha Templates is that you can change their appearance with the use of styles, layer effects or Blending Modes.

Digital Scrapbook Tutorial: Using Torn Paper Frames and Fancy Folds

Here is a tutorial showing how I combine two ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates in one layout. I’ll show you how to combine the ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Torn Paper Frames - Ovals with the ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Fancy Folds 5.

University Updates

The class “Mastering Brushes in Photoshop Elements” covers everything imaginable about brushes, from basic stamping and erasing to complicated masking. Creating your own brushes using letters, handwriting and memorabilia is also taught. Brushes are a wonderful way to preserve these items because brushes can be used in so many different ways. I have enjoyed teaching the Mastering Brushes in Photoshop Elements classes because I love seeing how students take the lessons and apply them in new and unique ways, creating stunning works of art.
