LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Theresa Kavouras

I just celebrated my 44th birthday. Yep, I have been on this earth for 44 years. I have lived it all - high school, college, career, marriage, and family. It has been 11 years since I walked down the aisle. And although I would never give back a second of any of it, I sometimes wonder, in the back of my mind, what my role is now? What can I give back to the world? Where do I fit in?

Life Muses by Ro: Follow Me

Blindfold intact, Nancy walked along the curb. Traveling four blocks without stepping off of the edge made her feel strong and secure in her ability to navigate without help. "It's uncanny," she smiled. "I can balance on this thin edge of cement when others can't. I'm so talented."

Life Muses by Ro: Sidewalk Entertainment

Bird 1: Friends... People... Birds... lend me your ears...

Bird 2: Here we go round the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Scrapping A Room

Note from Heidi: I love this advice from Doris Castle! I love having birds visit my backyard, and one of their favorite places to perch while waiting their turn at the feeder was a large, gracefully swooping branch that hung just above our fence line. It had several smaller branches hanging off it and just enough leaves to provide cover for the birds, but not too many so I couldn't see them. Just yesterday, I went outside and to my complete horror, my neighbor had completely cut off this beautiful branch from the tree! It brought tears to my eyes - yes, over a tree branch! But I was immediately grateful for all the photos I have with that branch in the background. I may never again be able to see my tiny flocks resting there in my backyard, but in my photos, that branch will always be there!

Life Muses by Ro: Small Town

You know you live in a small town when...

Customer Muse by Tami Harr

The beginning of April, my 20-year-old son, James, arrived home after nearly a year in Iraq. He is a Specialist with the Army Corps of Engineers in the U.S. Army Reserves. He is my youngest child and my only son. We have always been very close, to the point that he admits proudly that he is a "mama's boy."

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:

The Start to Finish eBooklet - PS: The Beauty of Blending Modes: Using them with ScrapSimple Products isn't just for ScrapSimple products. In this layout, I used four different papers from two different collections to make one background paper. I played with the Blending Modes and Opacity of the three top paper layers until I found just the perfect combination for the look I was trying to achieve. I played with the Blending Modes on the word art element to soften the look. Blending Modes work on anything you have in your stash of supplies! Play and experiment - you just might like the surprises that await you!

Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Lightroom 2

Name of challenge: Create a layout that is inspired by nature.

Journaling: We got a new travel trailer in April 2009. This is our very first trip in the new trailer. We went to Mormon Lake and it was still very cold but we had a great time just being a family out in the wilderness!

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
Scrap Girls Club Concepts Mini Tutorial: Slim CD Case Photo Grouping

I have so many different-sized photo frames lying around that are photo deprived. I don't have the time to figure out what size photo they each need and what photos I would even place in them. But I want my favorite photos adorning our walls, so I came up with a much easier solution. This works so well for me because all of the photos are the same size which makes them easy to print and easy to arrange on the wall. Easy is one of my very favorite words!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: The Possibilities of the Easy Page Pro Album: 4x6

I have always loved the 4x6-inch size for digital scrapbooking, but lately I have fallen in love with the Easy Page Pro Albums: 4x6. Why? Because I seem to be short on time, and these albums have all the work done for me! Although they seem limited in their uses, they really aren't. They have so many possibilities. In fact, I have been creating nonstop with them lately. Let me share some ideas of creative ways you can use these albums.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: ScrapSimple Layer Your Own Brushes

When I first started scrapbooking, I remember being completely intimidated by brushes. I loved the look, but I just couldn't figure out how to use them. Within a short time, I learned how to use brushes, and now they're one of my favorite scrapping tools. I especially love Scrap Girls' Layer Your Own Brushes because they give you an amazing amount of creative possibilities.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Adding Interest to a Layout with Dynamic Brushes

One of my favorite parts of digital scrapbooking is that I can add special artistic effects to my layouts. One of the looks I like to play with is a painted effect that interacts with elements on my page. Using a Dynamic Brush, it will look like I've painted on my layout.

What Customers Are Saying...

One of the challenges that our members look forward to each month is our Sketch Challenge. This challenge is introduced on the first Thursday of month and is led by our wonderful designer, Marnie Adams. Here are some things our members recently had to say about the Sketch Challenge.

Wednesday, July 7th - 10:00AM MT

Join April (April Showers)each Wednesday at 10am MT for the East Coast High Noon Crop. All coasts and time zones are welcome! These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes, simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week. On July 7th, we'll do a color challenge! Create a layout on any theme, any topic, using the color TURQUOISE! Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing 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.

Layout Contests:

June Monthly Layout Contest: June is National Candy Month and who doesn't like candy!? For this month's layout contest, use the wrapper of your favorite candy for inspiration. Does your favorite candy have a great color combination, cool fonts or a fun striped pattern? Use whatever inspires you about it to create your layout. 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!

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!
