Protect your files with Carbonite Online Backup.

Ro personally uses Carbonite to back up her computer. While it won't backup external hard drives, it is a fabulous solution for keeping all of your important documents on your C:/ drive safe and your backups completely up-to-date at all times. Using it has made her stop worrying about losing important business and financial files, because the backup happens without Ro having to do a single thing.

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

I love to read the lists with random things about people's lives which are posted here and there on the web, and I thought it would be fun to share one with you. Details sometimes reveal so much about someone's personality, and you get to know them better.

Life Muses by Ro: Concentration Is The Thing

"Concentration is the thing," she said. "If you don't implement it into your life, it will be very problematic."

"Problematic," he repeated.

Life Muses by Ro: Let Loose

Ro shares a list of questions to ask yourself.

Scrap Girls, Etc.: Using Layer Masks to Create the Illusion of Layered Items

Note from Heidi: When I first saw this Photoshop tutorial, it was an amazing "light bulb" moment for me! It was one of the things that finally convinced me to take the Photoshop plunge. I have since used this trick in almost every layout I've done, and I totally appreciate Melissa for sharing it with me. Since it's been a few years since this was first shown in our newsletter, I wanted to run it again and make sure everybody sees what a great trick it is!

Life Muses by Ro: If You Can't See It, Is It Gone?

My office had spiraled out of control. I have this inexplicable need to see everything I'm working on so that I won't forget about my projects. But over time, I get so many projects going at once that I can't see what I'm doing.

Customer Muse by Heather

There are days when I realize how unfortunate my children were to receive me for a mother. Thankfully, there are also days when I see that their fortune was not so bad after all...

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 Janine Buckles

"Friendship & Flowers" by Janine Buckles
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

When a picture is super large and takes up the majority of my layout, I choose my embellishments carefully. It would be very easy to do overdo it! In this layout, because there is so much white in the photo, I chose to use a patterned paper to add a punch of color. I used ScrapSimple Embellishment Template: Tucked Photos Biggie which added a soft edge to my picture. Next, I added a simple border at the top and bottom to frame my layout and then carefully placed simple floral embellishments in the bottom corner. I used a fairly big "tag" on which to place my text in keeping with the boldness of the photo. All in all, I think the fun, bright colors go really well with our silly self-portrait!

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
ScrapSimple Club Concepts Mini Tutorial: Making a Heritage Digital Scrapbooking Layout with ScrapSimple Products

This tutorial will teach you how to combine several ScrapSimple products to create an heirloom scrapbook layout. Each of the ScrapSimple products in this tutorial was designed to work together to give an old-world, time-worn feel to your digital products.

Designer Do-Over: Ariadna Wiczling

When I start doing a page, I usually start with a composition, a journaling, and colors. That's what I've done here. Notice that photos on this page look scattered, but they are in order. I love order in my layouts. Do you see this invisible line (here in red) visually linking all of photos and the journaling? Even the text is aligned to the left to emphasize it.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Recoloring a Flower

This tutorial will not only help you match the color of a flower embellishment to your layout, but will maximize the usage of your supplies by giving you more options.

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

For Christmas, I bought my husband a machine that will transfer videos from VHS tapes to DVDs. It didn't take long for me to figure out how to incorporate digital scrapbooking into the endeavor. That's right - custom DVD labels and envelopes!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Getting Creative with Digital Paint!

As a child, I remember it was great to have a new, crisp white piece of paper to paint anything I could dream of! As a mom, I love to see my kids having this same attitude - the only drawback is the mess! Messy hands, messy table, and even with washable paint, somehow the clothes just never were the same afterwards.

What Customers Are Saying...

Recently a thread on the Message Board resurfaced: Things I Want To Scrap... Someday. I had bookmarked it when it first appeared. It's full of such great ideas, I wanted to pass some of the older and newer ideas along.

APRIL EVENTS

April Message Board Game: Progressive Word Scramble!

The object of the game is to correctly guess the name of a product in the Scrap Girls Boutique by solving clues and unscrambling letters we give you. Each day, you will be given a letter found in the product name as well as a clue. You won't know how many letters are in the product name until it is complete. We will keep giving clues until a correct guess is made.

The designer's name or the word "Collection" are not included as part of the puzzle. Letters from any other words in product names (such as "Biggie," "Brush" or "Transparency") may be given as part of the puzzle.

Be the first to answer it correctly and win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the Boutique! You are only allowed ONE guess per daily clue, and you are only allowed ONE win per month. When you make your guess, you MUST provide a link to the boutique item you are referencing. We will play the game daily during the entire month of April. When a correct answer is given, the new puzzle will start the following day.

For complete details and examples of game play, visit the "Games" folder on the Scrap Girls message board.
