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.

LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Thao Cosgrove

I am often asked, "Where do you get the inspiration for your digital scrapbooking kits?" The answer to that is varied and different for each kit. Whether it's a particular color scheme or special experience, most of my inspiration comes from my favorite things.

Life Muses by Ro: Room for Love

Close your eyes. Imagine there is a big ball in your chest. Feel it draw together from every pore and limb in your body until it is a solid, round thing. It may end up being the size of a baseball. It may be as big as a basketball. But feel it, sense it, and see it in your chest.

Life Muses by Ro: Opportunities for Growth

We live in a troubled world. We hear rumors of war rumble from various parts of the globe. We witness countries and individuals struggle with economic difficulties. We see people suffer as a result of natural and man-made disasters. We observe disruptions in family and personal relationships. We see people mistreating other people.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Chart Your Emotions

Note from Heidi: This is such a great project! I loved it when Becca Hauck first showed it to me. I love how it can help kids of all abilities and backgrounds identify their emotions. Often, one of the hardest parts about growing up is learning what all those different feelings are and what to do with them! Maybe I should make one for myself, too. I'm sure my husband would appreciate a heads-up on how I'm feeling some days.

Life Muses by Ro: Play the Game of Life

Note from Ro: I recently came upon a wonderful poem about courage in the face of challenges, which I'd like to share with you today. It has been written by that great author, Anonymous.

Customer Muse by JustPattyAnne

The summer between my junior and senior year of high school, I was able to do a summer student exchange program to Switzerland. I grew up in the oldest town in Oklahoma with small-town home and small-town values, but with "taking the world by storm" aspirations. My parents had to save and give up a lot for me to be able to do this. It was and still is one of the greatest experiences of my entire life. I had a wonderful host-family, and I still glow from all the adventures of life during those three months.

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!

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I wanted the border to look like dried-on mud. I applied ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Stamped - Neutrals 4902 - Biggie to the ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Mixed Media Edges 2, then reduced the depth of the style's bevel and emboss setting to give it a flatter appearance.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Shape Shifter

Unzipping a folder full of digital scrapbooking supplies is like opening presents at Christmas, unwrapping and drooling over each new treasure - complete with "oohs" and "aahs." In particular, I enjoy the beauty and texture of the patterned backgrounds, but sometimes the paper's design has such a visual impact, it can distract from the focal point of the layout. What's a digital scrapbooker to do?

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

If you're anything like me, any time an occasion arises that needs a card, I prefer to make my own as opposed to buying one. And, once again if you are like me and you are time poor, a ScrapSimple Card Template is the way to go.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Quick and Easy Frames with Frog Closures

Do you ever need to create a layout quickly? Tomorrow morning, my niece will be coming to our home. I have a darling photo of her and her cousin. I thought it would be fun to give her a layout including this picture, but I don't have much time to prepare it. I want the photo to be the focus of the page, so I have an idea and want to share it with you.

JUNE EVENTS

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. When a correct answer is given, the new puzzle will start the following day.

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

You don't have to include the candy's wrapper in your layout but you might mention it in your description. Create your layout and post it in the June Layout Contest Gallery by Midnight MT on June 30th. 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!
