LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Angela Blanchard

I have had the most wonderful opportunity to explore the country of Nicaragua. I have been able to travel into the jungle where coffee is grown, watch the beans being hand-sorted and sun dried. I’ve experienced walking up to the mouth of an active volcano to see the lava and watching the steam and gasses rise from its depths. I’ve ridden a boat out to islands in Lake Nicaragua; the only lake where fresh water sharks are said to roam. It even seems normal to me to spend Christmas day out in the jungle running around catching butterflies. However, none of these things seem to be as “special” as what goes on right on the street where I live.

Life Muses by Ro: Instant Stupidity Relief

Wouldn’t it be something if we could take a “reverse the stupid” pill every night? This miraculous pill would quietly work on our subconscious mind’s magnificent computer, discovering all of the mistakes we made during the day. When it discovers errors, the chemicals in the pill would spur our minds to search through our mental files and find proper solutions for that day’s mistakes. It would implant correct responses, should the events that provoked the stupidity occur again.

Life Muses by Ro: Lean Into The Lavender

At night, when my mind is running as fast as my computer’s fan, I often spray lavender over my pillows. As soon as I smell the lovely purple scent waft under my nose, I feel a calm descend upon me like a soft, white comforter.

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Candle Jar Lids

Note from Ro: Even though I’ve worked with the Scrap Girls designers for five years, I am still astonished at their creativity. Brandy, I wouldn’t have thought of this in a trillion years. (A million sounds so small now...)

Life Muses by Ro: No Objections Here

- She appears in my office. -

Her: Do you want anything?

Me: No... thanks anyway. I appreciate you thinking of me. Did you need anything?

Customer Muse: Life Goes On

With great personal disappointment, I was forced into taking a disability retirement in December 2007 from teaching, a profession I loved. Walking the halls had become too much for my legs to endure anymore. Several years earlier, I had been diagnosed with PPS, Post Polio Syndrome. Okay, I thought at the time, I don’t feel any differently. I can continue to work full-time. I can continue teaching as I had done for the last 15 years. My life isn’t going to change. Oh, was I wrong!

div

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!

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To create a fun title for the layout, I chose the Stencil Std font for the word "American" and clipped a copy of the red, white and blue papers from my layout to the text. I then arranged them to resemble the American flag.

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
ScrapSimple Club Concepts

June's Scrap Girls ScrapSimple Club's featured designers are Syndee Nuckles and Paula Wright. Their club is full of fun 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!

Designer Do-Over: Caroline Kaiser

I created this layout when I first started digital scrapbooking and was overwhelmed by the possibilities. The original is a bit too busy due to the patterned papers, the alpha above the picture and the embellishments that I added randomly at the bottom of the page. I decided to redo this layout using the Photoshop skills I have developed over the years. I want the colors to coordinate better with the picture of my sweet daughter, Lily, and the photo to be the focal point.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Getting More From Your Collections With ScrapSimple Paper Templates

I have so many favorite digital scrapbooking collections that I have purchased over the years and last year I realized that the same old favorite background papers kept popping up time and time again! That's when I discovered the beauty of ScrapSimple Paper Templates! They give me the freedom to express my creativity in so many new ways. I'm going to show you my favorite (and simplest) way of using them.

Way Cool Stuff Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Easy Pages

What are your first thoughts when you hear the words, “Easy Page?” Is it too easy? How about cheating? Or, maybe, no challenge? Well, I cringe to admit that those were some of my first thoughts... emphasis on the word “were!” A little investigating has changed my mind set. By the end of this article, I hope to change any misconceptions you may have and make an Easy Page true believer out of you, too!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Organize Spices With Custom Labels

A couple of years ago, I was given a rotating spice carousel. The labels that came with it got ruined some time ago when I was spraying the ants in the cabinet. (That’s another story.)

Scrap Girls Convention Countdown

Can you believe it's less than 100 days until the 2009 Scrap Girls Convention? If you have signed up and, like many others, are counting down the days, look at this fun, little game I found on the message board. It's the ABC's of the Scrap Girls Convention. What a fun idea!
