LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Carrie Stephens

Looking back to when I was young girl, you could find me sitting quietly in a corner - coloring, cutting up paper, and happily painting for hours. My mother always laughs as she reminisces about finding little trails of paper cut-outs all over the house.

Life Muses by Ro: Out of the Shadows

Shadow is a black cat whose is approximately half as large as a Volkswagen Beetle. He began life as the tiniest kitten imaginable. Two neighborhood boys thought he was ours when they found him half-drowned one rainy evening and delivered him to us. I told them he was not ours and that they should find his true home. But the boys told me no one wanted to claim him. When I felt ten eyes (those of the two boys, my daughter, my son, and the poor cat) pleading for me to allow the little black thing to stay, I caved and Shadow became a permanent resident.

Life Muses by Ro: Blank-Blank

Ro shares one of her doodles! Check it out!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Confessions of a Digital Scrapbooking Artist

Every one of us occasionally suffers from scrappers' block. It's not easy to be creative and original all the time. It's probably not even possible. I found a string on the Scrap Girls Message Board the other day. One of our members had trouble finding "the groove" after a break. There were some great pieces of advice there: Participate in Scrap Girls challenges, take a lot of pictures, take a two-day break. But the most recommended thing to do was scraplifting!

Life Muses by Ro: Details of Life

As a digital scrapbooker, I am in the perfect position to appreciate the small wonders of this life because I have the ability to focus on small, usually unnoticed details. The curve of the banister as it mirrors the stairway. Makeup in a box. Scissors in a pencil box. Brightly colored polo shirt collars.

Customer Muse by Jennifer H.

There are few things in my life that have rocked me to my core. The diagnosis of aggressive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) at the age of 29 was one of them.

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 Michelle Torres

"Dreams" by Michelle Torres

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I wanted to paper-pierce my background using Ariadna Wiczling's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Crafty Plaster - Flowers as a template. I dragged the paper template onto my page and changed the Opacity to around 40% which would allow me to see my brushwork as I move along. I then went to my Brush Palette and chose Dynamic Brush Set: Paper Piercing 8201 - 1_Smooth. I kept the Opacity at 100% and changed the spacing to around 180%. Making sure I was working on a new layer in the Layers Palette, I slowly traced around the petals forming an outline. When I was satisfied with the piercing, I deleted the paper template layer.

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
Scrap Girls Club Concepts Mini Tutorial: Recipe Box Dividers

Like many of you, I have been collecting recipes from my mom, friends, and family for a while now. The problem is that I seldom put the recipes on cards, and I have no sorting system to my box. I decided to take a nod from my cookbook and make four section-divider cards for my recipes.

Themed Thoughts: Home Repair

My husband and I have been married for seven years, and in those seven years we have owned three homes. Our first two homes were built in the 1920s and needed a lot of repairs and updates. I am lucky enough to have a handy husband who enjoys fixing things around the house (most of the time). We have enjoyed the before-and-after photos of many of our repair and renovation projects. Thanks to Scrap Girls, those before-and-after photos can easily be preserved in high quality, outstanding digital scrapbooking pages.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Customizing Word Art

Many times when we look at word art, we may think that it's suitable for only one, or maybe two, types of layouts, or we don't think about how we can change the look of the word art to make it fit better with the digital scrapbooking layout on which we're working. Today, I'm going to show you how to do that. I'm going to use a word art brush, one from my Brush Set: Life Quotes 1, which I have always felt to be rather formal and thought-provoking, on three different layouts. I will also show you how to easily change the look to match the mood of your layout.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Easy Pages

What would your first reaction be if someone told you that you could create an entire album of 10 layouts in one evening? If it were me, I'd say "That's crazy!" Well, I'm here to tell you, it's not only possible, but it's easy!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Thank You Cards

With the world full of emails and cell phones, it can be easy to lose the etiquette and art of the thank you note. Thankfully, with just a few digital scrapbooking supplies, you can say thank you in a beautiful way. With a handmade, handwritten thank you note, the recipient will certainly feel special.

Each day, members of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the Bingo list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO.
