Life Muses by Ro and Other Writings
A Designer's Life: Valerie Randall

You never know what's going to feed your creativity or when that inspiration will hit. It might flicker across your screen while you are quite young and then build, quietly yet powerfully, over time. It could germinate during a simple everyday conversation and blossom forth fully realized in unexpected ways. Inspiration can feed your creativity in subtle, continuous waves or it can reach out and bash you upside your head and heart. No matter how it visits or how long it remains, it is always refreshing and brings forth a divine expression of your own unique gifts.

Life Muses by Ro: All The Help We Can Get

"Daddy, will we always be with you?" the smallest girl asked, her eyes bright with love for her father.

"I hope you will, dear, but I cannot say for sure. The answer to this question is up to you.

Life Muses by Ro: Speed Scrapbooking

I'm in a hurry. At least, it feels like I am in a hurry. All of the time.

I have too much to do and too little time to do it. At least, I feel like I have too much to do and too little time to do it.

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Plastic Ice Cream

Note from Ro: Valerie Randall (V, as we call her) is very witty. Not only that, she notices things that most people miss. I found this blog post on the Scrap Girls Digital Adventures Blog and thought, "It's just like V to notice something like this." Cool, V.

Life Muses by Ro: Where Did I Say I Am I Going Again?

I am fascinated by arrows. I have been known to beg designers to make new sets for me. Whenever I think of a good excuse to use one, I sneak an arrow onto my layouts.

Customer Muse: Last Goodbyes

Generally, when I write my feelings down, I have a layout mapped out in my head. The beginning - it has to catch your interest. The middle - giving just a bit of background if needed, the basis for the anecdote, with the occasional piece of humor thrown in for good measure. And, the end - hopefully uplifting and if a moral of the story can be encompassed then so much the better.

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 teabaglady, daisies803, and Scraptabulous!

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 Julie Moberly

"Hoo Loves Mia" by Julie Moberly

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I wanted the wood paper border from Sarah Batdorf's Hoo Loves Ya Collection Biggie to look like a frame. I added a bevel from the styles in Photoshop Elements 5.0, but it still appeared flat, so I used Erica Hite's ScrapSimple Tools -Styles: Emboss 5401.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Altering a Paper Template for a Photo Matte

Scallops are so fun and whimsical! This tutorial will help you create a scalloped edge on a photo by altering a paper template.

Way Cool Stuff Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Embellishments

Have you ever seen one of those photo collages where the photographer has used various items or cityscapes to "create" letters out of everyday objects? These "letter" photographs are then used to spell out peoples' last names or inspiring sentiments. When I sat down to write an article about embellishments, I was inspired to try and create the same type of collage title - except instead of using photographs of park benches, sewer covers or Roman arches, I am using my stash of embellishments!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Combining Digital Layout Templates

ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates... we've all used them at one time or another, especially if you ever needed to put together a layout quickly and easily or if you've gotten into a creative slump and needed an extra boost. Did you know that an easy way to breathe new life into these templates is by combining them from different collections to create a new layout? In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how you can easily combine them by using ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Round and Round and ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Stacked 3.
