LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Ariadna Wiczling

I have two girls, ages 4½ (Bianka) and 2½ (Fabia). I am amazed at how much their feminine nature has showed up, even when they were very small. I can understand that the younger one watches the older one, but how did Bianka, at the age of 2, know that you could make jewelry from Christmas chains? I don't know! I don't wear jewelry very often. It's just their nature, I believe. It's that "girl thing."

Life Muses by Ro: Make Room for Blessings

I've heard it said that if your hands are clasped tight, they are not open to receive. Think about it, when you are grasping onto something you currently have because you can't let it go, can someone place something else in your hands? When I learned about this concept a few years ago, I asked myself if I was holding onto things. If I was, what were they?

Life Muses by Ro: You Are Stronger Than You Think

Find what matters to you as you answer these questions...

Scrap Girls, Etc: Brighten Someone's Day

Note from Heidi: I absolutely love the sweetness of this blog post by Shalae Tippetts. It often takes little more than an act of courage on our part to reach out and say a kind word or offer assistance to someone in need, and so often shyness, fears of the unknown, fear of rejection, peer pressures, and just plain busy-ness keep us from offering as much kindness as we could.

Life Muses by Ro: Ta-Dah!

Ro shares one of her cartoons. Check it out!

Customer Muse by Angela N.

Driving along the interstate with my husband, we see a sign for a bookstore... which makes me think of...

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

"Celebrate Family" by Julie Moberly
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To make the white frame from the ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Lifted Postage match the layout better, I placed the tan paper from the Murano Collection Biggie over the frame. Then I used a clipping mask (Ctrl+G for PC; Cmd+G for Mac) so the paper would take the shape of the postage frame. The frame still stands out and coordinates well with the layout.

Designer Do-Over: Ang Campbell

In re-doing this layout, I had two important goals: 1) Make it meaningful, and 2) Do it quickly.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: How to Fit Photos in a Frame Opening

Most of our ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates in the Scrap Girls Boutique are layered files. That means the spots designated to place photos will be on another layer, and you can simply use your clipping mask to attach the photo. You will find some, though, that are single PNG files with cut-out spots to add your photos. The question I get asked most often by members is "How do I get my photos in the correct spot?" Today, I'm going to show you one way to do this.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Embellishments

When I put together a layout, embellishments play a big part. I use them to direct the flow of the page, to help me create a focal point, and to help me tell the story.

OCTOBER EVENTS

October Message Board Game: Going on a Boutique Hunt!

Remember as a child when you played the game that started like this: "I am going on a ___ hunt and bringing..." then you listed an item with the first letter of your name or a specific letter? We are playing a similar game on the Message Board during the month of October. Each day, a new theme and starting letter will be posted in the Game thread. Members will search the Boutique for something that fits the theme and post a link to it in the Game thread. Only one product per letter per round will be counted, and products cannot be used more than once. Collections and their individual parts are one product, and time stamps will be used to determine which post came first in case of more than one post per letter. Entries are to follow the alphabet, starting with the letter posted with the theme each day. There's a limit of three posts per person each day, and there must be another player's post before posting again.

PRIZES: Members' names will be added to a drawing based on the number of qualified product links (up to three) which they post in the thread. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the month. Gift certificates will be awarded as follows: First prize, $15 Gift Certificate; second prize, $10 Gift Certificate, and third prize, $5 Gift Certificate.

Winners will be announced in the Newsletter on Saturday, November 6th.

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

Layout Contests:

October Monthly Layout Contest: October is National Family History Month in the United States but we can celebrate our family's history no matter what part of the world we live in. For this month's contest, we want you to do a layout telling a story from your family's history. Was there a black sheep in the family or someone who was a person of prominence? Did someone sacrifice a lot to keep their family together? Everybody has some story of note from their past. If you don't have photos of the particular members of your family that the story centers on, think about using a photo of a place where the story happened or just do a journaling page with embellishments that evoke a feeling from the time. Post your layouts in the October Gallery before Midnight MT on October 31st. 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!
