Some things - like V-neck sweaters, wood flooring, Hershey's Kisses, and ice water with lemon - are such classics that they never go out of style. Sometimes, things are so good that they shouldn't be missed. Our All Star designs are that way, too! Each one of these top-selling products is too good to be missed. This month's All Stars are on sale for 30% off until the 5th of each month! So head to the All-Stars section of the Boutique today and pick up a steal-of-a-deal on a digital scrapbooking classic while you can!

And don't forget to check out the Retirement Sale section of the Boutique. Items in this section are always on sale for 30% off. The items you will find during any particular month will be discontinued permanently on the 5th of the following month. So if you see something you like, grab it while you can!

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

Last week, our eleven-year-old son, Chad, advanced from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. In our Scout troop, we have a tradition of having a slide presentation showing the boy who is advancing.

Life Muses by Ro: A Letter to an Angel

Note from Ro: I just had to show you this post from my blog – Life Muses by Ro. In case you don't know yet, my daughter just presented me with the most beautiful baby granddaughter in the entire world! (And I'm not prejudiced one little bit.)

Life Muses by Ro: How to Become Twitter-pated

Are you on Twitter yet? If you're not sure what Twitter is, I'll update you: Twitter is just another method of connecting with people through short little messages called Tweets. You can only use 140 characters when you make a Twitter post so, by default, it makes you think carefully about what you want to say when you post.

Scrap Girls, Etc.: Organizing Digital Photos - Part Five: Sorting Tagging

Welcome back! Last week I gave you some ideas for the kinds of photos you'll want to think about deleting and gave you a challenge to delete at least ten from your hard drive.

Life Muses by Ro: The Bestest Reasons to Become a Digital Scrapbooker

Have you ever considered why we enjoy digital scrapbooking so much? Is there value in creating digital scrapbook layouts?

Customer Muse by Carole Ivener

Being on the top shelf in life is probably seen by some as a pinnacle, except in my case, it's not quite as pinnacle-y as I would like it to be. I suppose if you want to understand a little about me, you might need to understand why my outlook on the top shelf isn't as bright as you might expect!

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.

Digital scrapbook layout by Ashleigh Bronner

"Sweethearts" by Ashleigh Bronner
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

A quick way to create a multi-colored border is to use the Brush Tool. First, I selected a Square Brush. Then I opened the Brush Tool Palette and clicked on Brush Tip Shape. Next, I changed the Spacing until the individual squares of the brush tip began to separate. Here, the Spacing is set to 112%. Then, I brushed a straight line onto my layout and used the Paint Bucket Tool to fill each individual square with color. Since I wanted a border around the entire layout, I duplicated the layer three times and then merged them all together.

FEBRUARY EVENTS

February 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 February 1st when we post the thread to February 28th at 12:00 Midnight (MST). We are doing things a little differently this time and there are two ways to participate - the Message Board and the Gallery, so here are the rules:

1) To enter the Message Board 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. During the month, chat your fingers off! On February 28th, 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.)

2) To enter the Gallery Posting Challenge, take a screenshot of your Gallery comment number and send it to [email protected] BEFORE February 1st, Midnight (MST). To get to your Gallery Stats, click the arrow beside your Profile photo and go down to Gallery. Your total comments number is under Stats on the left-hand side - this is what we need a screenshot of to know where you are starting. Then BEFORE Midnight (MST) on February 28th, take another screenshot of your Gallery Stats and send it to [email protected], this will give us your ending number and enter you in the contest!

PRIZES: You may enter both contests. Members with Message Board posts over 50 will be put in a drawing for a $5 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate. Members with Message Board posts over 200 will be put in a drawing for both the $5 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate and a $10 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate. Members with Message Board posts over 400 will be put in a drawing for a $15 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate, as well as the $5 and $10 Gift Certificates. Members with Gallery comments over 25 will be put in a drawing for $10 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate.

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

Layout Contests:

February Monthly Layout Contest: In the spirit of Mardi Gras, let’s scrap about parties!!

So put your party hats on and post your layouts in the February Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MT on February 28th. 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!
