LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Brandy Murry

My day starts out with a fresh cup of coffee and sitting in the dining room window. I recently purchased a cute little table so I have a place to set my coffee and flip through my many decorating and scrapbooking magazines. I plan my design day as I gaze at the gardens below and enjoy my plants while the cool breezes of autumn come through the open window.

Life Muses by Ro: Breakfast Is a Symptom of Life

Breakfast is a symptom of life. If we don't take time for it, we say to ourselves that we are in too big of a hurry to care for our bodies. We are telling our systems that we can't stop and refuel them. We are stating, fairly firmly, that the demands and pressures we feel from external sources are more important than we are.

Life Muses by Ro: Cheap or Economical?

Some people might say I'm cheap. I prefer to say that I'm economical.

Scrap Girls, Etc: Saying Goodbye

Note from Heidi: A very dear friend of mine recently lost her father. A few days later, one of my stepmom's best friends was killed in a tragic accident. Needless to say, love and loss has been on my mind lately. This post from Erica Hite resonated with me strongly because of that.

Life Muses by Ro: Peace is a Gift

Peace is a gift from God. It settles on a soul like a gentle dove that has found safety in the green leaves of a strong tree.

Customer Muse by Angie Durr

So it has come. It is here. Today is officially my last day of summer. I really cannot deny it anymore. Don't get me wrong, as a teacher, I love the first days of school. The sparkling white shoes, the anticipation of new friends, the joy of seeing old friends once again, the thrill of learning and experiencing something new every day for the next nine months. However, for some reason, saying goodbye to summer is harder this year than I expected.

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 Julie Moberly

"I Wish" by Julie Moberly
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

The quality of the original photos was poor due to a lack of light in the early morning. I decided to blend the photos with the blue paper from ABC Fun Collection Biggie to change their appearance. I sandwiched the paper in-between two copies of the photos. Then I set the Blending Mode of the top photo to "Color Burn." Next, I set the Blending Mode of the blue paper to "Hard Light" and lowered the Opacity to 78%.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Creative Ways to Use Foil

Foil is fun! My kids love to get a sheet of foil and crinkle it up and then undo it to see all the cool wrinkles they made. Then they like to carve pictures into it and cut out fun shapes. Digital foil can be just as fun, and there are so many ways to use it! You can color it, emboss it, make sprinkles with it, fill shapes and titles with it, and even create a gorgeous, gold-leafed look.

SEPTEMBER EVENTS

September Message Board Game: Simplify September!

It's time to kick off a new season and the upcoming holidays with fun and focus on scrapbooking! And a few prizes thrown in never hurt, right? Join us on the message board this month for "Simplify September!" This Message Board game and challenge is meant to help you get those photos out of your camera and get started on your holiday cards, 2011 Calendars and focus on taking time to scrapbook regularly, despite the little speedbumps of life. When the month is over, you'll have completed several projects and have been challenged along the way.

A member of the Welcoming Committee will post a task every day from September 1st - 30th in the game thread. Don't let the idea of daily tasks intimidate you. When we say "mini," we mean it. Our goal isn't simply to keep you busy, but to direct your focus through baby-step tasks that will lead you to completed projects. Some tasks will require Message Board participation, email responses or Gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you. (If nothing is specified, then it is an "on your honor" task, and we'll trust that you did as required - tasks will often build upon one another, and we'll see in later tasks that you completed earlier ones.)

PRIZES: Those who complete all tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59pm MT on September 30th will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete just the layouts will be entered in a separate drawing to win one of three $5 Gift Certificates. (Those who complete all tasks will have their name entered in both drawings!)

Winners will be announced in the Newsletter on Saturday, October 9th.

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

div

Layout Contests:

September Monthly Layout Contest: You may not think about it often, but you do make a positive impact on those around you. For the September contest, we want you to scrap a layout about something you have done that made a positive impact on someone else. It might be in your role as a parent, a friend, a teacher, or a team member in sports or at work. Post your layouts in the September Gallery before Midnight MT on September 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!
