LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Cherise Oleson

If I had to describe my cooking philosophy, this would be it: 1) Homemade, 2) Economical, and 3) Nutritious. I love to cook homemade goods and I typically make something from scratch at least every other day. Sometimes, I bake more than one thing in a day, too. It just depends on my schedule and my family's needs. I have my own grain grinder and store whole wheat, oats, and dried corn in big white food-grade buckets. Then, I grind my flours fresh on demand. This helps with both the nutritious and the economical side of things.

Life Muses by Ro: The Jackrabbit Principle

In the 1950s, Yale graduates were asked how many of them had written goals. Only three percent stated that they had specific, written goals. A follow-up study discovered that the three percent had not only achieved their goals, their net worth was as much as the rest of their graduating class combined.

Life Muses by Ro: Go Get It

Ro shares one of her doodles... check it out!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes

As many of you may know, I am always on the look-out for healthy recipes to replace the unhealthy versions that we used to eat. Whole foods, clean eating, as little unprocessed food as possible — that's what I believe in.

Life Muses by Ro: THE Gypsy

It was called The Gypsy (emphasis on THE). When I first saw this grand hairstyle, I fell in love. I reasoned that since beautiful women wore The Gypsy, I might become a beautiful girl if I had The Gypsy, too.

Customer Muse by Renee M.

Last month I decided I didn't have enough to do in my already busy life. According to someone I met recently, I wasn't doing anything that fed my soul. Everything I do is for family and work. So I signed up for an African Dance class. I went to the studio where people were stretching and had on kente cloth skirts. They looked like they knew what they were doing. I had on yoga pants....

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 Jo Corne

"Babo" by Jo Corne
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

Using ScrapSimple Tools - Lightroom Presets: Classic Sepia 10301 and ScrapSimple Tools - Lightroom Presets: Vintage Postcard 10301 Mini, I followed the instructions on how to add these to Lightroom's presets. With a few clicks of my mouse, I was having fun deciding which preset to use. On the photo of Aaron and his Babo, I first gave the photo the Vintage Postcard preset. Then I used the original photo and gave it the Classic Sepia preset. I placed both versions of the photo into Photoshop, one on top of the other with the sepia photo on top. Then I gave this sepia photo a layer mask and erased Babo's shirt to bring up the color of the shirt underneath to match the other photo as well as the tone of my layout. Finally, I merged these two layers into one.

ScrapSimple Tools - Lightroom Presets: Classic Sepia 10301 ScrapSimple Tools - Lightroom Presets: Vintage Postcard 10301 Mini Watercolor Whimsy Collection Biggie
Grande Dame Collection Biggie Nuptials Collection Biggie ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Butterfly Shadows 6301 Mini
ScrapSimple Tools - Scripts: File Save 1 11101 ScrapSimple Tools - Scripts: Supply Tracker 11101 ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Punch Out 5401
  ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Embed 1801  

Commercial license versions of ScrapSimple Tools - Lightroom Presets: Classic Sepia 10301, ScrapSimple Tools - Lightroom Presets: Vintage Postcard 10301 Mini, ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Butterfly Shadows 6301 Mini, ScrapSimple Tools - Scripts: File Save 1 11101, ScrapSimple Tools - Scripts: Supply Tracker 11101, ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Punch Out 5401 and ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Embed 1801 are also available.

Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS4

Name of challenge: Free Scrap

Other Ingredients:

  • Font - Garamond

Journaling: Gran, granny, grandma, nanna and ouma are all names you could have called your grandmother. In Yiddish we say bobba and when we tried to teach Jessie to say 'bobba' she turned it around and said 'babo'. This stuck and when Aaron was born, we taught him to say 'babo' too. People always think we are saying 'bubble' but we just smile to ourselves and keep it as our little secret!

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Brushes

Before I discovered digital scrapbooking, I was an occasional – and admittedly, mediocre – paper scrapper. I just couldn't commit the time and money to all the latest gadgets and tools, much less the pretty papers and embellishments. I was especially impressed by stamps. I loved the look that stamps brought to a page or card, but I was wholly unimpressed by how expensive they were!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Using AYO Zoom Kits to Create Baby Announcements

Assemble Your Own Zoom Pages: 4x6 Watercolor Baby Boy (or Baby Girl), is the perfect size for creating your own baby birth announcement or baby shower invitation. Everything you need is included in one digital scrapbooking kit.

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!
