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: Amanda McGee

Is there such a thing as a recipe for happiness? I certainly would like to think so! And I'm sure there are many different and unique kinds - one size does not fit all.

Life Muses by Ro: Details. Details. Details.

"I turned on the furnace, dear."

Groggily, I waved my hand at him. "That's nice."

Life Muses by Ro: A Very Happy Ending

Over the years, I have often written muses that celebrate the small details of life. There is such wonder in a peach blossom, a drink of ice water with lemon, and the feel of a leather journal in your hand.

Scrap Girls, Etc.: Favorite Pancakes

Note from Heidi: Pancakes are a big hit at my house. My husband loves to make them. His favorite thing is to practice making shapes for Nelly for when she's old enough to eat them. So far he's mastered the blob shape. Maybe we'll whip up this recipe from Katherine Weaver and try mastering the elusive splat shape! Enjoy!

Life Muses by Ro: Good Enough

Ro shares one of her doodles! Check it out!

Customer Muse by Dee Van

We walked around her living room looking at pictures of her husband.

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

"Mother's Day" by Janine Buckles
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

The background paper I used was from the Spring Inspiration Collection. It has subtle flowers and words blended into a wonderful array of soft colors. To create my title, I picked a soft shade of purple and then placed a swirl and horizontal bar from Brush Set: Swirlicious Biggie on a layer above my background paper. With the brush layer highlighted, I scrolled through the Blending Modes until I found one that gave me a similar look. In this case, I chose one called "Exclusion." Then I added my text in the same purple shade, but in order to allow it to stand out, I left its Blending Mode set to "Normal." Now I have a perfectly coordinated title!

See how our message board members are helping each other with questions about Adobe Photoshop Elements, RAM, scratch disks, and more!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Simple Perspective

Sometimes I have a photo that has some great full-body shots that would be fun to extract and play with in a layout. One fun way to do this is to create a scene by using digital scrapbooking supplies and place the objects within that scene. In order to make it look a little more realistic, you have transform your supplies to have a bit more perspective and depth. Let me show you a really simple way to do this.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Papers

Papers are so fun to work with. When I buy a collection, I take time to look at the papers and see how they fit together. It is common to use papers as backgrounds, but the truth is they can be used in many different ways. For example, you can use them to add texture to your photos and embellishment templates.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Different Themes with One Collection

Purchasing a collection from Scrap Girls means that you'll have beautiful papers and elements in your stash that you can reach for time and time again. That's one of the very best things about digital scrapbooking - the fact that we can change things up and use them again and again makes it economical and eco-friendly.

Send an email with the EXACT item name (within the product) and the link where the product is found to [email protected]. Use the subject line: Geocaching Scrap Girls Style in your email entry, and be sure to include your message board name and real name. Entries must be received by Midnight MT on May 31st.
