LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Valerie Randall

Sometimes, I wonder why my career path led me to be the Creative Director of a digital scrapbooking company. Generally, scrapbooking is done to record a family's history, to preserve memories for generations to come; to create a sense of living history so that those distant relations will come to know us more realistically. We are able to flesh out those photos with our thoughts, dreams and desires, our struggles and plights, our accomplishments and successes.

Life Muses by Ro: It's OK To Ask For Help

A few weeks ago, as I was sitting in my family room watching television, I heard my cell phone ringing in my office. My instincts took over and I barreled down the hall in a mad rush to answer it. The dog gate was between me and the phone. I leaped over the gate like a sprinter on the way to the finish line. Unfortunately, the bottom of my shoe caught on the gate and I flew across the tiled floor like a jet taking off on its way to a foreign land.

Life Muses by Ro: What Things?

What things can you do when you break your hand?

  • Watch "Dancing With the Stars"
  • Talk on the telephone

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Thanks

The air is crisp, which is good because we need more than a shot of espresso to motivate us this morning. We arrived in New York City late last night and, today, we are heading into Manhattan with my brother-in-law. We are still on west coast time but, today, we are experiencing the Big Apple lifestyle first hand: taking the subway into Manhattan and then walking to Google where my brother-in-law works.

Life Muses by Ro: New Situations by Sara Peterson

Note: While Ro is recuperating from her broken hand, the Scrap Girls team has pulled together some of their muses for your enjoyment!

Customer Muse by Crystal Wallace

I have four boys under the age of six. Don't ask me how it happened or if I believe in birth control or if this was all in an attempt to have a little girl. I will not answer those questions, but I will say that my life is creative.

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 Amy Lemaniak

"Five Months" by Amy Lemaniak

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

This is a scraplift of no_idea's "Paper Route" layout (removed for publication.) To color the ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Spackling, I used my Eye Dropper tool to select a color from the green strip of paper. I hit Ctrl+U to adjust the Hue/Saturation/Lightness but made sure to check the "Colorize" box to get it to turn to the shade of green I had previously selected.

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Spackling ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Bits of Mesh Brush Set: Collage Stamped
Patternologie Collection Biggie   Dynamic Brush Set: Basic Stitching 4901 Biggie
