LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Shalae Tippetts

You know what? Life is hard. Sometimes, it really is just hard, and it can be difficult to get through a day. Today was one of those days. It was a hard day in which I have shed so many tears that my face and eyes are raw.

Life Muses by Ro: Backyard Swimming Pool

Note from Ro: I found this muse that I wrote in 2008. It has made me desperately want to find a spot to put up my pool in our new backyard, which has a slope to it, so it will be tricky. But if you read this muse, you'll see why I MUST find a solution....

Life Muses by Ro: Multitasking is code for...

Multitasking is code for: "I can spin a plate on my head while doing laundry and balancing my checkbook."

Scrap Girls, Etc: Precise Trimming with Photoshop Shortcuts

Note from Heidi: Here's another super simple, yet indispensible trick that will help you in so many ways! When Sarah Batdorf first released this tutorial, digital scrapbooking hadn't yet gotten into all the neat papers and backgrounds that we have available now. The fringed denim paper in Sarah's Sandy Shores was one of the first papers I saw that wasn't quite 12x12. I wondered at the time what I would do with papers that didn't fit across my entire background. Now the look is so popular, and I have seen so many wonderful examples of what to do with them. I'm glad to have exciting new types of "not quite" papers to choose from!

Life Muses by Ro: America's Greatest Talent

Ro shares one of her doodles! Check it out!

Customer Muse by Jolene West

It was December 1984. I was a temporary, part-time employee working as a ramp agent for one of the major airlines in Salt Lake City, Utah. Back then, temporary, part-time work didn't include benefits of any kind.

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 Jennifer Wight

"High School Best Friends" by Jennifer Wight
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I did not add my solid brown border to my layout until the end. It was kind of a finishing touch for me. Once my layout was complete to my satisfaction, I merged my layers together. Then I placed a new layer under my layout. I used the Paint Bucket Tool to color this new layer brown. Next, I resized my layout slightly until the background layer showed to my liking. When resizing things, it is important to note that you should resize from the corner points and never from the four sides. This keeps your photos and embellishments from becoming distorted.

Software used: Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0

Name of challenge: Use stars in your layout, either as a focal point or in a subtle way.

Journaling: In high school, these girls were my best friends. After high school, we went our separate ways to college and later married and had children. We kept in touch through emails, blogs, Facebook, as well as an occasional get-together. During the summer of 2008, the three of us reunited. We weren't sure when we would be seeing each other again. That fall, my family planned on moving out of the country, Aleena and her family would be moving back to California, and Heather and her husband were headed east for more schooling. I am thankful for the Internet and the ease it allows me to stay in touch with my high school friends.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: How to Use ScrapSimple Alpha Templates

Sometimes when I'm creating a layout, I want to have a title treatment that matches well with a specific kit I'm using. In such a case, I have found that ScrapSimple Alpha Templates work great for creating a unique title. In this tutorial, I am using ScrapSimple Alpha Templates: Stitched Denim to make an original title for my layout.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Alphas

Creating journaling and titles is a dream with digital scrapbooking. When I paper scrapbooked, I always ran out of letters and it was totally annoying! But with the Alphas from the Scrap Girls Boutique, I can use the same letter over and over and never run out!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Drop Shadows - Going Beyond The 120

In this tutorial, we're going to look at drop shadows and specifically at the angle or the direction that the drop shadows falls on a layout. Most drop shadows that we work with are set at the 120-degree angle. In this tutorial, we will look at that and then go beyond the 120-degree angle.
