LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Angela Blanchard

When I was just out of college and moving into my first apartment, funds were tight. It's a time that can include some of the most exciting, scary, and happy moments in a young person's life. I know it was all of these for me. However, it brought out in me some good traits like thriftiness, decorating on a budget, and portraiture.

Life Muses by Ro: Justice versus Mercy

Bailiff: All rise! Recommendations and arguments for penalties regarding the matter between the Johnson family and the Livingston family will now be heard by her honor, Judge Mary Whether. Court is now in session.

Judge Whether: (Addressing the general audience) Are the attorneys in this matter ready to begin?

Life Muses by Ro: Clarity Arrives

Clarity arrives each morning...

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: We Are Spoiled

Did you know that we as digital scrapbookers are spoiled? Spoiled rotten, we are! It became very clear to me recently as I was continuing to work on a project in our home. We took down some paneling in our main room, and it was now time to paint. I picked out a main color and an accent color, both in the gray family, which I was hoping would look somewhat contemporary/country, whatever that is....

Life Muses by Ro: Post-Script

P.S. Today is Friday.

Customer Muse by Mary G.

Today while driving home from getting my hair cut, I came across a butterfly floating across the roadway. I knew the instant that I saw her, we were going to collide. I thought maybe, just maybe, she'd make it past my car, but upon checking my mirrors I didn't see her fluttering away behind me. I was horrified. I know it's just a butterfly to some people, but to me, it means so much more. Every spring I look forward to seeing the butterflies in my garden. They represent new 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 Joann Brown

"Green: Not Just for Broccoli" by Joann Brown
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

Paper templates are a great way to add new dimension to an existing paper. In this case, I used ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Washed and Worn. I placed the green paper in the layer above the paper template, used a clipping mask to "attach" the paper to the template, and then changed the Blending Mode to "Linear" to reach the effect I was trying to achieve.

ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Washed and Worn Old Photo Frames Embellishment Biggie Pot of Gold Collection Mini
Bamboozled Collection Biggie   Batik Collection Biggie

Commercial license versions of ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Washed and Worn are also available.

Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS4

Name of challenge: St. Patrick's Day

Other Ingredients:

  • Font - badonk-a-donk

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
Scrap Girls Club Concepts Mini Tutorial: Dressing Up Feathers

Here's a fun way to dress up the feathers in Assemble Your Own Zoom Pages: The Bee's Knees.

Themed Thoughts: Play Dates and Sleepovers

We all have our favorite collections and digital scrapbooking products for our kids' birthdays and special events, but sometimes it can be more difficult to find just the right items to complement the more "everyday" moments. I wanted to share some of my favorite digital scrapbooking supplies to use to scrap your photos of play dates and sleepovers.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Using Acrylic Overlays

Adding an acrylic overlay is a great way to add some depth and interest to your layouts. It is especially fun to have embellishments and photos "come out" of the acrylic overlay holes. It's a little tricky at first to do this, but once you get the hang of it, you will find yourself adding all kinds of pieces in and out of the overlay holes.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Alpha Templates

I must confess, when I saw this product review was assigned to me, I panicked a little. I thought to myself, "I don't use ScrapSimple Alpha Templates, so how can I give a useful review?" But after a little more thinking, I realized that's just how it's supposed to work: The reviewer is given a product, tries it out, and then gives a report. So that's what I set out to do!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Making Quick-and-Easy Modern Art Prints

In this tutorial, you will learn how to make an extremely quick, simple, and inexpensive modern art print using Scrap Girls background paper. This project will literally take only minutes and can cost pennies. It is perfect for those of us on tight budgets and with little time.

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!
