LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Caroline Kaiser

As a child and teenager, until I got married and had my own family, I shared my parents' Christmas traditions. We met at my parents' house, had dinner together and unwrapped the presents.

Life Muses by Ro: The Rabbit And The Bear

"Walk that way," said the bear to the rabbit as he pointed down the hill. "There is a patch of lettuce at the end of the road and I'm sure that you will have an enjoyable time eating to your heart's content."

Life Muses by Ro: How Do I Look?

"How do I look?"

These are the most dreaded words in the English language for any self-respecting husband because it is difficult to reply honestly without getting into trouble.

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Super-Ness

Lately my son has been using the word "super-ness." I have heard it used to describe his daddy, Jesus and Superman.

Life Muses by Ro: The News

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

Customer Muse by Nicole Elliott

I spent the first 19 years of my life living in the same house in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Every Christmas, we did the exact same wonderful traditions. On Christmas Eve, we would go to the candlelight service at church. Then, it was off to Grandma's house where we ate, sang Christmas carols, read the Christmas story and unwrapped a few presents. When we got back home, I remember the excitement I always felt trying to fall asleep...

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!

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
Scrap Girls Club Comments

Read what our great customers have to say about the November Scrap Girls Club from Melissa Renfro and the November ScrapSimple Club, featuring Amanda McGee and Brandie Valenzuela!

Designer Do-Over: Marnie Adams

During one holiday season, many moons ago, we were able to take a photograph of my youngest daughter in the aftermath of a marathon day of celebrating. I really adore that photo because it captures what she was during that period of her life: a whirlwind of activity until she literally collapsed. Unfortunately, the layout I made fell short of encompassing the spirit of the season or achieving any design merit at all.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Making the ScrapSimple Craft: Christmas Pop Top Cans

Today, I'm going to show you how to make some Christmas pop top cans using the ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Christmas Pop Top. (This tutorial will demonstrate how to assemble the cans themselves, but not the digital layout templates. You will want to prepare the templates, print them out and crop them before you begin this tutorial.)

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Assemble Your Own - Embellishments

These days, it seems as though you can customize just about anything! With Assemble Your Own products, you can even customize digital scrapbooking embellishments. Let me show you how.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: So Very Stylish

What are styles and how do they work? To help you understand the magic of styles, we are going to create a layout where every element of the layout uses a style. You'll see how easy and fun styles are and how they give you more freedom to choose the colors you want, both in your photo and on your layout. (If you have not tried using digital scrapbooking styles yet, make sure to read the instructions included with your purchase and follow the steps to install the styles.)

University Updates

Over the last few months, I have taught several different classes including "Kaleidoscopes" and "Stunning 3D Text." Both classes are always fun to teach.
