LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Brandy Hackman

Starting with my first baby, in an effort to make a cute nursery and do it on a very small budget, I decided to make the bedding for his crib. I bought some very cheap fabric, spent some time in a baby store figuring out the patterns (since I was too poor to buy the patterns) and then went to work making the crib bumper, bed skirt, and quilt....

Life Muses by Ro: Mistakes Do Not Define You

After dashing off a few sentences in an email to my partner about an issue we were managing, I hit the Send button on my email client. Immediately, I was hit with a sick feeling. Something didn't feel right.

Life Muses by Ro: Leaving Something of Value Behind

Recently, I've been thinking a lot about my life and what I'd like to leave behind once I depart the world. I've actually thought so much about it that after a while, I started to have mild panic attacks at night, worrying that I wouldn't get myself organized before I go! (Sounds morbid, doesn't it? But I figure it's better to act now. You never know what's going to happen to you. Life is filled with so many surprises.)

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Song Book

Note from Ro: I found this fabulous idea in the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Adventures blog. It comes from Brandy Murry. I used to sing songs to my children constantly when they were little. This is inspiring me to do this someday for my grandchildren! (Of course, I'll have to sing the songs, too. I think I'll record myself singing them and put them on a CD.)

Life Muses by Ro: Turning Down The Volume

Ro shares one of her doodles. Check it out!

Customer Muse by Paula H.

These past two years or so have been a challenge for me... a challenge that I willingly accepted initially, but at times I have struggled since then.

We decided to leave our high-tech rat-race lifestyle in "the big city" in November 2006 and moved our family back to my husband's tiny hometown in rural Manitoba to take over his parents' farm. Returning to his farming roots seemed like a wonderful way to be together as a family, work together, live off the land, and have a slower pace of life....

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

"Hungry To Learn" by Amy Lemaniak
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To add a little touch of the books to my background paper, I took the book brush from Brush Set: School Time Doodle Biggie and stamped each book on its own new layer in the color I desired. Then I changed the Blending Mode of the layer to "Color Burn" to give each one a funky look, which was less distracting than when they were just stamped onto the paper.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a unique set of ABC cards, using ScrapSimple Alpha Templates: Photo Collage and your other digital scrapbooking supplies and photos.

Designer Do-Over: Caroline Kaiser

Here is a layout I made in the very beginning. I love this photo of my two boys, and I remember very well that I tried a lot of techniques with brushes on this layout. Learning by doing and pushing all the buttons and seeing what happens has always been my motto. But all in all, I am not fond of this page design. That's why I decided to redo it.

It's easy to create a title with the look of cookie cutter letters on your digital scrapbooking layouts by using ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Cookie Swap 6101 and following these simple steps.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Creating A Reflection

This tutorial is about creating a custom reflection for a digital scrapbooking embellishment. When doing a layout with a water scene, you can use these techniques to make your embellishments look more realistic.

University Updates

Oprah Winfrey said, "The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." In the recent "Who I Am – Right Now" class, the students took these words to heart and flooded the gallery with beautiful pages, celebrating their lives... big things, little things, serious and silly things. One month and 20 assignments later, each student had an album entirely about them....

MARCH EVENTS

March Message Board Game: Posting Contest!

It's that time again - Posting Contest time! This is where you are rewarded for your flying fingers and chattiness. The contest will run from March 1 when we post the thread to March 31 at 12:00 midnight (MST). We are doing things a little differently this time, so here are the rules:

1) To enter the Posting Challenge, reply in the game thread with your CURRENT post count. This is the number under your Avatar that shows when you post. Do not post the number found on your profile; it is a different number that is calculated differently.

2) During the month, chat your fingers off!

3) On March 31, BEFORE midnight (MST), go back to your original post in the game thread (the one with your starting post count) and take a screenshot of it. Send the screen shot to [email protected]. The screenshot is your contest entry! We will calculate your post count based on the numbers on the screenshot. (Directions for taking screenshots will be posted in the game thread.)

Prizes: The top poster gets a $20 Scrap Girls gift certificate. Everyone over 250 new posts will be entered in a random drawing for a $10 Scrap Girls gift certificate. Everyone over 100 new posts will be entered into a random drawing for a $5 Scrap Girls gift certificate.

div

Layout Contests:

March Monthly Layout Contest: Smile! The month of March includes Smile Day. Does seeing someone else's smile make you smile? For this month's contest, we want to see your layouts featuring a smile. Create your layout and post it in the March Layout Contest Gallery by Midnight MST on March 31st. Be sure to list your credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. If your layout is one of the two chosen, you will win a $10 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

Club Concepts Layout Contest: Post your new layout using the current club selection (either the Scrap Girls Club or the ScrapSimple Club) in our Scrap Girls Club Members Gallery or the ScrapSimple Club Members' Gallery. Be sure to list all of the Scrap Girls products you used. If your layout is chosen, it will be showcased as a Club Concepts layout winner, and you will win a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
