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.

LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Sarah Batdorf

Note from Sarah: Here are some emails that I wrote to my family while Bill and I were expecting our first child. The two years trying to conceive were an emotional roller coaster. But everything happens in God's timing....

Life Muses by Ro: 20 Great Life Shortcuts

Experienced digital scrapbookers who use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements understand the value of keyboard shortcuts. We love them because they allow us to design and create faster. And so we practice them.

Life Muses by Ro: What do you think I should do?

"What should I do?" she asked.

"Tell me what your options are," her friend replied.

Scrap Girls, Etc.: Organizing Digital Photos - Part Six: Finding Your Photos

Once you've gone through and tagged all your photos, how do you go about finding the ones you want? I'll give you specifics for the Windows 7 Explorer. All software is pretty similar, so poke around and see what you can find. Plus, the more you explore in your software on your own, the more comfortable you'll get and the more you'll figure out!

Life Muses by Ro: Are You Printing Your Layouts?

Last fall, my childhood best friend came to visit me. As we discussed what has happened to us during the decades we had been apart, she asked to see some of my digital scrapbooking layouts. I was embarrassed to say that all of my albums were out of date. I was embarrassed to say that I haven't printed any of my digital scrapbooking layouts in a couple of years. I was embarrassed to say that while I have been taking vast numbers of photos and have created large numbers of pretty layouts, I didn't have anything to show her - unless she wanted to come into my office and look over my shoulder at my monitor.

Customer Muse by Jen

1. Why do kids always forget their snowpants at school when it's Friday - and it snows all weekend long?

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!

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Dynamic Brushes

When you use Dynamic Brushes, they change direction as they follow your cursor across the page, automatically scatter, and some will even change color! And if you have a tablet, they will respond to the pen pressure, as if you were using a real brush or a calligraphy pen.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Creating an Embossed Digital Scrapbooking Background

With March 2nd being Dr. Seuss's birthday, I wanted to make a zany page inspired by his wonderful books. One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books is Oh! The Places You'll Go that was given to me for graduation one year. Using a preschool graduation photo, I thought a sky background with a subtle hint of letters as a nod to reading would be fun. This tutorial is how I achieved that background paper look.

MARCH EVENTS

March 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 March. 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 which they post in the thread. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the month and winners will be announced in the April 2nd Newsletter. Gift certificates will be awarded as follows: First prize - $15 Gift Certificate; second prize - $10 Gift Certificate, and third prize - $5 Gift Certificate.

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

Layout Contests:
