LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Katherine Weaver

Some women "go gaga" over designer handbags. Others amass more shoes than can possibly fit in their closets. As for myself, I go "coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs" for cookbooks. Paperback, hardbound, new, or vintage... it doesn't matter, because I always have room for one more.

Life Muses by Ro: 25 Things That Are Good for the Soul

1. Smiling
2. Photographs of fluffy clouds

Life Muses by Ro: It's Not Over Until It's Over

I heard her voice coming from the labor room next to me. In the last stages of labor, she panicked and began to scream, "Let me out of here! Give me my clothes. I can't do this. I'm going home."

Scrap Girls, Etc.

In my wanderings around the Internet researching things as diverse as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 2011 home schedule to Jupiter's icy moon Europa, I have also come across some pretty neat things that have helped me speed up my scrapbooking. Shortcuts! And not just any shortcuts, mind you, these are some super-duper, top-secret, blow-your-socks-off type shortcuts.

Life Muses by Ro: He Is Soooo Guilty

I don't like it. In fact, I hate it. It wastes my time. It puts me at risk. It makes me roll my eyes up in my head. But he still keeps doing it, and because I love him so much, I haven't had the heart to tell him to stop it - until today.

Customer Muse by Eileen

That saying hung on a plaque in the rec room of my childhood home. We also had pictures of poker-playing dogs and other plaques with pithy sayings like "Ve get too soon oldt; und too late smart."

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!

"Resolutions for the New Year" by Heather Messmer

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I love playing with paper templates with my layouts. For this layout, I added a paper from ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Art of Love, but I wanted it to blend in with my background paper and not overwhelm it, so I lowered the Opacity to 40% to get the look I was after.

Art of Love Collection ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Art of Love ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: Life - Everyday
ScrapSimple Alpha Templates: Embroider Me - Classic AMC_Happy Font AMC_Quirky Font
ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Lifted Journal Strips   ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Basic Shadows 6501

Software used: Adobe Photoshop CS3

Name of challenge: Create a layout about your New Year's resolutions.

Journaling: To stop worrying about the things I can't control, to enjoy the many blessings God has given to me, and to live in the present moment.

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
ScrapSimple Club Concepts Tutorial: Tips for Recoloring Digital Scrapbooking Templates

One of the best products to use for making custom pieces is ScrapSimple Templates. In this tutorial, I am going to explain a couple of quick and easy ways to color these templates to help you make unique elements that suit your layouts every time.

Designer Do-Over: Marnie Adams

Back when I was taking my digital scrapbooking baby steps, I made many design choices I would never make now.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: How to Create Double-Sided and Ripped Digital Scrapbook Paper

There is a fun product in the Boutique that allows you to create papers that look like they have actually been crumpled, then ripped and rolled. Because they are ScrapSimple products, you can customize the color to match any digital scrapbooking layout you are working on. There is an easy way to get the torn edge to be a different color than the paper color, just like a real paper when you tear it.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Calendars

Chances are, if you have places to go, things to do, and people to remember, you use or have used a calendar. Or a planner. Or something else that helps you to systematically keep track of your days. Life is busier than ever - and we don't want to miss a thing!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Embellishing Digital Photo Masks

Instead of just using a photo mask as-is, why not embellish it and take your layouts to the next level? It's not as hard as it sounds.

What Customers Are Saying...

At Scrap Girls, we care about each one of our customers! Truly, we do! And here are some of the nice things our customers have said to us lately....
