Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer's Life: Angie Briggs

My goal for this summer was to get the boys to learn to ride their bikes. They have had them for about four years now and, for the most part, they sat in our garage with the training wheels on, serving as an obstacle course for us to walk around. They have had no desire to learn to ride. Between their scooters, baseball, basketball, etc., they always had something else they would rather do and bike riding was not at the top of the list.

Life Muses by Ro: Tender Mercies

Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. They get sick. They get hurt. They lose their jobs. Things are stolen from them. They may even experience a disaster of such magnitude that they lose every physical thing that they have accumulated. Even worse, they lose those they love due to illness, accident or the actions of others.

Life Muses by Ro: The Perfect Parking Spot

Process for Acquiring the Perfect Parking Spot

(Dedicated to the man I love, who has driven me crazy on this topic for more than 30 years.)

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Peanut Butter Cookies

Note from Ro: Warning - the following post by Sarah Batdorf I discovered on the Scrap Girls Digital Adventures Blog may make you drool. Better get a napkin before you read it.

Life Muses by Ro: Life is a Tangled Web

Life can feel like a tangled web of push and pull between our own actions, the actions of others, the forces of nature, our frail human bodies, and acts of God. What we choose affects ourselves and others. The choices of others affect them and those around them. Communities are affected by acts of God and nature. We get sick. We die. On the surface, it appears that we are so subject to the influence of others and influences outside of ourselves, that we have little control over our own lives.

Customer Muse: Position Available

For the past few weeks, I've visited the wonderful purple site every day searching for inspiration. With each visit, the layouts take my breath away - whether the subject is a baby smiling at you, a wedding, an engagement, a plant, an animal or just journaling, they've touched me in one way or another.

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!

Digital scrapbook layout by Joann Brown

"To Have A Child" by Joann Brown

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I knew that I wanted this particular quote to be spotlighted in my layout, so I decided to make my own word art. It was easy, because I knew from the beginning that I wanted to emphasize the words "forever" and "heart."

I started by putting each line on a separate layer. Because I wanted the word "heart" to really stand out, I applied Melissa Renfro's ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Metals 5001, which I absolutely love because of its versatility. It still needed a little more attention so I selected a brush from Shalae Tippetts' Dynamic Brush Set: Mixed Media - 4901, and created a new layer behind the word "heart." I used the Color Picker to pick out a blue from my background paper on my layout, and reduced the Opacity to about 50%. I wanted the brush effect to be very subtle. Lastly, I created a heart using Thao's Dynamic Brush Set: Drawing 5701 and my pen tablet. I quickly applied the ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Metals 5001 to the heart, hung it over the letter "t" and erased enough of the heart to make the effect realistic.

Tutorials and Articles
ScrapSimple Club Concepts

April's Scrap Girls ScrapSimple Club's featured designers are Erica Hite and Valerie Randall. Their 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!

Best of the Message Board

Question: I just upgraded to 64 bit Vista. I have had a Seagate 750 External Hard Drive (EHD) for auto backup for some time now. However, this EHD is not compatible with Vista! So, I went shopping, found a great deal for a Seagate 1.5 TB EHD and it says right on the box that it is Vista compatible. We bought it, brought it home, loaded it and guess what? It does not support 64 bit Vista. Great. The drive works fine, but the software for auto backup does not. I searched around the Internet and have discovered that although 64 bit is the way of the future (or now, if you're running a lot programs at once, like I do.) There are many software applications that do not work on the 64 bit machine. I checked the Western Digital (WD) website also, since my next thought was, "Fine, I'll just go get a WD EHD," but same story there. The software is not compatible with 64 bit machines. I am returning the new one, even though it's a great deal, on the thought that eventually the software will be compatible. In the meantime, I have gone back to the 750 Seagate, cleaned off the whole thing, and put all my stuff back onto it. It will work just fine. I just have to remember to do it manually and that will be a pain. I thought you'd all like to know in case you have a 64 bit machine.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: More Creative Stitching - Part 2

Last week, I wrote a tutorial for the newsletter on using type shapes to create unique stitching on your digital scrapbooking pages. Today, I want to show you a variation on that theme. You can also use type paths to create a variety of different looks. You can combine several paths together and even use paths from different sets. There are wavy paths, triangle paths, circle paths, star paths, swirly paths, bracket paths... You name it and you can probably find it in the Scrap Girls boutique.

Way Cool Stuff Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates

My dad used to tell me, "Kelly, there is more than one way to skin a cat!" We were not actually terrorizing the local felines. He was simply telling me that there are typically many ways to accomplish the same goal. This is so true in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. Today, I want to share with you two techniques that I often use to recolor ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Simulate a Letterpress Printed Portrait

Rather than using a digital scrapbooking photo as is, experiment with selections and styles to create something different.
