Online Class - Totally Touchable Textures
Totally Touchable Textures
Wednesdays, June 9 & 16
7:00PM MT

Rough, smooth, soft, hard, bumpy, lumpy, textures are all around us. They can add depth and interest they add to scrapbook layouts. And with digital scrapbooking, you can use them without worrying if items are acid free, what kind of adhesive to use, or whether they are too bulky to fit into page protectors.

Join Anna Mansfield for this two session digital scrapbooking class that looks at the plethora of textures available to us as digital scrapbookers. It is packed with tricks to make digital embellishments look realistic. You will learn six different techniques, creating completely customized textures using ScrapSimple products and the default tools included in Photoshop Elements.

IMPORTANT: This is an Intermediate-level class Adobe Photoshop Elements users only. Students are required to understand the basic skills taught in the Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed: Photoshop Elements and MORE Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed: Photoshop Elements program prior to starting the course. This information will not be reviewed as part of the course!

New Classes Available!

Online Class - The Art and Importance of Journaling
The Art and Importance of Journaling
Tuesdays, June 15 & 22
7:00PM MT

If you are looking for a course on grammar, spelling, and punctuation, this is not the class for you. But, if you want to be motivated and inspired to add more journaling to your layouts, then this digital scrapbooking class is the place! Journaling can be overwhelming and intimidating. Learn some simple tricks to make it easier. Discover ways to help it become part of your layout design rather than an afterthought. Look at real examples, and see how easy and fun journaling can be.

Join Anna Mansfield for this two session class which teaches you methods and tools for journaling. Sample layouts clearly illustrate each concept, making it easy for you to follow along with the class and to see how to incorporate journaling into your own scrapbooking layouts.

IMPORTANT: This class is open to all students interested in improving their journaling skills. Students are required to understand the basic skills taught in the Scrapbook Secrets Revealed and MORE Scrapbook Secrets Revealed program prior to starting the course. This information will not be reviewed as part of the course.

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: Melanie Johnson

If you were to drop by my house on any given Friday around 7:00 p.m., you would probably find a large group of people finishing up a meal of pizza and salad or a slightly smaller group setting up Settlers of Catan, one of our favorite board games. As active members of our church, my husband and I host a Life Group in our home on two Fridays of the month and an open game night on the third Friday for anyone who wants to come and hang out.

Life Muses by Ro: We'll Get There When We Get There

"I want to go home," he said, impatient to leave the twentieth historical site he had been forced to see over a three-day time period. "The sooner we get in the RV, the sooner we'll get home."

Life Muses by Ro: Just Do the Best You Can

A list of to-do's from Ro.

Scrap Girls, Etc.: The Digital Scrapbooker's Survival Kit

Note from Heidi: This article by Ro really speaks to my heart. I so firmly believe that each of us has an ability to create layouts, capture moments with our cameras, write meaningful journaling – all of those things that make wonderful legacies in our scrapbooks. I would never wish for those gifts and abilities to be stifled for fear of embarrassment or insecure feelings about talent. We are each worthy of having a story worth telling, and we are each immensely capable of telling that story in whatever way we choose. Read on!

Life Muses by Ro: Would Voltaire Approve?

Upon being told that a professor had an answer for everything, Voltaire (the famous French philosopher), exclaimed, "Heavens! Is he so ignorant as all that?"

Customer Muse by Gail Spiro

I know it's really just a toy that my boys have outgrown, like so many others. But how can I explain my sorrow at taking apart this plastic Playmobil pirate ship?

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!

June Message Board Game: Quotable Quotes

The object of the game is to correctly guess the layout (created by either a product designer or layout artist) that contains a quote or journaling. Each day, you will be given a word found in the clue. We will keep giving words to the clues until a correct guess is made.

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 link it to the correct layout in the Boutique. We will play the game daily during the entire month of June.
