LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Paula Wright

Isn't it interesting how life can go along with nothing much changing, and then at other times, it's jam-packed with a variety of experiences? As a Scrap Girls product designer, I often view life through the lens of a camera or think of new products that are inspired by an experience. This summer has provided lots of experiences!

Life Muses by Ro: Measuring Life

How do you measure your life?

Life Muses by Ro: Make Your Layouts "Real"

My computer is mad at me; I have rediscovered the magical process of writing first drafts with pen and paper. And I have remembered that writing this way includes some natural benefits.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Whoa, Nelly!

Note from Heidi: My husband, Dan Steenblik, wrote this amazing blog post on August 14, 2009 - two days after our daughter was born, exactly one year ago today on August 12, 2009. I'm not sure what today will hold for the three of us. Dad has promised Nelly an adventure in the mountains. Momma has promised splashings in the fountain at the local park, followed by ice cream. Maybe we'll do something entirely unexpected. After all, it seems like August 12 is the day for the unexpected in our little family....

Life Muses by Ro: Out of the Amazon

Ro shares one of her doodles. Check it out!

Customer Muse by Alice Jaggard

Every day, my husband and I go different directions for several hours. The time apart is encapsulated in the following dialog, my everyday muse.

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!

"So Sweet" by Charlene Crowder

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I needed to change the colors a bit on the candies from Sugar Baby Collection. I did this with the Hue/Saturation Tool. But in the process, they seemed to lose some of their shine. To make up for this, I used one of the options from ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Candy Cane 6301 to give them a glossy look.

Sugar Baby Collection Brush Set: Swirlicious Biggie Dynamic Brush Set: Unusual Stitching
Celebration Station Embellishment Biggie From the Desk Of Collection Biggie Holiday In Lights Collection Biggie

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Adding a Unique Shadow to an Orchid Embellishment

One of the embellishments in Orchid Collection Mini is an illustration of a potted orchid plant. Instead of the typical flat drop-shadow, you can add a more unique shadow for a greater three-dimensional look.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Dynamic Brushes

Dynamic brushes have opened up a world of possibilities in digital scrapping. They are so versatile, and there are countless ways to use them. Dynamic brushes are different than regular brushes in that they can be used in any direction, as well as respond to pen pressure when using a tablet.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: How to Use ScrapSimple Paper Templates

I like using a nice, solid paper mixed with a ScrapSimple Paper Template to create my own textures for backgrounds. In this tutorial, I am adding ScrapSimple Paper Template: Mosaic Retreat Biggie to one of the Momma Dear Paper Mini solid papers and adding a color shift to customize my background paper. Let me show you how!

What Customers Are Saying...

This question came up recently on the Scrap Girls Message Board:

Is there any way to save a "template" or some kind of file where I can keep the saturation, hue, and light/dark information for a color I want to use over and over on different overlay layers?

AUGUST EVENTS

August Message Board Game: Posting Contest!

It's that time again - Posting Contest time! This is where you are rewarded for your flying fingers and chattiness. The contest will run from August 1 when we post the thread to August 31 at 12:00 Midnight (MST). We are doing things a little differently this time, so here are the rules:

1) To enter the Posting Challenge, reply in the game thread with your CURRENT post count. This is the number under your Avatar that shows when you post. Do not post the number found on your profile; it is a different number that is calculated differently.

2) During the month, chat your fingers off!

3) On August 31, BEFORE Midnight (MST), go back to your original post in the game thread (the one with your starting post count) and take a screenshot of it. Send the screenshot to [email protected]. The screenshot is your contest entry! We will calculate your post count based on the numbers on the screenshot. (Directions for taking screenshots will be posted in the game thread.)

Prizes: The top poster gets a $20 Scrap Girls gift certificate. Everyone over 250 new posts will be entered in a random drawing for a $10 Scrap Girls gift certificate. Everyone over 100 new posts will be entered into a random drawing for a $5 Scrap Girls gift certificate.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls message board.
