LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Thao Cosgrove

I learned to draw at the age of three by imitating my mother's drawings.

Life Muses by Ro: Be Still. Right Now.

Be still. Right now.

Close your eyes and imagine that you are sitting on a hill far from the city, the moon shining across the tops of the trees. You hear silver-dollar shaped leaves of Quaking Aspens trembling in the breeze. You smell musty earth mixed with pine needles. You feel the cool earth beneath you.

Life Muses by Ro: Turn On The Light

Ro shares one of her doodle drawings - check it out!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Hotel Soap for Home Guests

Note from Ro: I almost gasped when I saw this post by Thao Cosgrove on the Scrap Girls blog. It is such a good idea and so simple to execute. Over the years, I've collected lots of hotel toiletries and it occurs to me that it would be fun to make customized labels and such as gifts. Thanks, Thao!

Life Muses by Ro: See Ya At The Top

I have often read that studies show that the majority of successful people exercise. Every time the information surfaced, I tossed it my mind's trunk, vowing to examine that fact at a later date. Maybe I left this information in my trunk full of random facts because I hadn't considered the question in a serious way.

Customer Muse by Cindy Graves

I have wanted to write this muse for a year. Today is the day. As I sit here at the second Scrap Girls convention, I have been reflecting on the last convention and the impact both it and Scrap Girls has had on me.

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.

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!

Digital scrapbook layout by Elisha Barnett

"You're So Cute!" by Elisha Barnett
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I loved this unfinished puzzle look in katiemo's "Puzzled" layout. She created it for a message board challenge to use a tutorial from Scrap Girls University. To find the tutorial, I went to the University, clicked on the topic "ScrapSimple Embellishment Digital Templates" and scrolled down to find the tutorial called "Achieving the Unfinished Puzzle Look" by Brandie Valenzuela. Using the tutorial, I was able to lift Katie's layout, using my own photo puzzle.

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Spackling ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Puzzled ScrapSimple Word Art Templates: Lifted Stencils
ScrapSimple Tools - Shapes: Buttons 1501 ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Chipboard 6401 Just Be You Collection Biggie

Software used: Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0

Name of challenge: Scraplift a Scrap Girls member.

Other Ingredients:

  • Font - BaaBookHmk

Journaling: Dominik loves to get in the bin with all of his toys.

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
ScrapSimple Club Concepts Mini Tutorial: Create a Cabinet of Memories

October's Scrap Girls ScrapSimple Club's featured designers are Erica Hite and Brandy Hackman. Their club is full of fun products that can help you document your photos and get creative in amazing ways.

Designer Do-Over: Jan Hicks

A few years ago, when I was still paper scrapping, I came across a poem that I fell in love with. In my opinion, it embodied the relationship between a parent and child perfectly. I decided to create an album based on this poem.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Creating Segmented Photos

Have you ever seen something on a layout and wondered how it was created? Me, too! One of the things I love about Scrap Girls is all of the cool things there are to learn. Today, I'm going to show you how to make your photos look like they were printed on separate pieces of cardboard that are connected with wire rings.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Alphas

The school season had just started as I pondered what cool thing I could share with you about alphas. My oldest started kindergarten, so the ABC's are a hot topic in our house while he learns to read and write. I often hear the question, "Mom, how do you write a G?" or "What does a little E look like?" I got an idea. Why not make some flash cards to help him remember what each letter looks like? I also have a daughter in preschool and these flash cards will also help her as she learns her ABC's.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Clipped Boards

Have you ever wanted to clip items onto a digital scrapbooking clipboard? When you have completed this tutorial, you will have one similar to this. For this tutorial, I will be using the joy clip from the Assemble Your Own: Clipboards.

University Updates

Over the last few months, I taught three different classes. We re-ran the "Out of Bounds" and "Kaleidoscope" classes and introduced our new class "Stunning 3D Text."
