The Secret Life of Embellishments
Tuesdays, March 22 & 29
7:00PM MT

Did you know that embellishments have secret super powers? They are capable of so much more than just looking pretty. In this digital scrapbooking class, we will learn how they can tie a color scheme together, establish the flow of a layout, and create a focal point. We will use embellishments to create the illusion of depth and texture. Don't underestimate the power of embellishments. This class includes two one-hour sessions in a private chat room and access to a private class forum and gallery.

Important: This Intermediate Level class is for Adobe Photoshop Elements users. Students are required to understand the basic skills taught in the Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed: Photoshop Elements and MORE Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed: Photoshop Elements program prior to starting the course. This information will not be reviewed as part of the course!

LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Life: Marnie Adams

Finding one of life's little gems is always a lovely surprise - like scoring an extra treat in a Cracker Jack box. We happened across one of those hidden treasures on a recent trip to Alcatraz Island.

Life Muses by Ro: I Never Learned

Ro shares a layout and some words of wisdom.

Life Muses by Ro: Exotic Island

Ro shares one of her cartoons. Check it out!

Scrap Girls, Etc.: Finding Spring

Note from Heidi: I just got back from a two-week road trip to west Texas where the temperature averaged in the mid-80s! Now I'm back in Utah where it's drizzly and cold and I have to wear socks again. I am SO ready for spring to be here! I've really realized this year that I am NOT a winter person and would cheerfully give up my long winter nights and snow-filled winter days for someplace nice and temperate - like Maui. Hey, they get snow there, too, once in a while! I can drive up the volcano and visit when I'm feeling the need to throw snowballs!

Life Muses by Ro: Key Lime Pie

Note from Ro: Because I've had a busier week than usual, I thought I'd help myself along by sharing a recipe that I recently posted in my HowMomDidIt.com blog. I hope you don't mind!

Customer Muse by Debbie Flint Daniel

I never would have thought that going to the bus stop could be so sweet. Each morning, we all put on our snow pants and hats, coats and boots, mittens and scarves and anything else that might help keep the elements at bay and head off in the dark to the bus stop. It's only 50 yards from our house, but that walk is precious to me. You all frolic in the snow or slide on the ice or traipse through the mud when it's not so cold. We meet the neighbor kids there and sometimes chat a bit. You ask me to watch some new trick you've invented. You snuggle up close to me when the wind is icy.

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 Cheri Thieleke

"Baby Joy" by Cheri Thieleke

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I adore all the beautiful brushes in the boutique, but sometimes they look a little flat just stamped in color on a layout. So marry them up with a style or use them as a clipping mask for a paper! On this page I clipped the brown paper from Natural Affection Paper Mini – Solid to the main title brushwork. Behind the photo, I used ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Painting Textures on a mask from Brush Set: Urban Grunge Photo Masks.

TUTORIALS and ARTICLES
ScrapSimple Club Concepts Tutorial: Creating a Digital Hand-Stitched Sampler Scrapbook Layout

One of my favorite techniques in digital scrapbooking is to use items in an unexpected way. I like to "paint" on my digital scrapbook pages with unusual brushes. So I decided to use the lace in Brush Set: So Tatty to paint myself an old-fashioned, hand-stitched sampler - digital style.

Best of the Message Board

See how our message board members are helping each other with questions about deactivating software, the Pen Tool, and more!

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Make a Memory Card Game with Digital Scrapbooking Products

My two-year-old is currently obsessed with pirates. Actually, pirates and dinosaurs. He likes to call himself a "pirate dinosaur" sometimes. I wanted to make him something fun with this theme, and the idea of a memory card game fit the bill. There are quite a few digital scrapbooking supplies in the Scrap Girls Boutique featuring pirates. I downloaded the very cute Pirates and Mermaids Collection Biggie by Amanda McGee.

Way Cool Stuff - Digital Scrapbooking Product Review: Assemble Your Own Zoom Pages: 12x12

I recently took my youngest son's picture as he turned five months old. For some reason, about eight years ago when I took a picture of my twins at that age, I sat them in some pots - maybe because I was amused that they could fit. Well, I decided to amuse myself again with Nathan and the same pots.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Creating Indian-Inspired Patterns in Digital Scrapbooking

You've seen them all over bookstores and stationery shops - the beautiful Indian-inspired prints that cover blank journals, note pads, and greeting cards. Now you can create that same exotic look with Dynamic Brushes: Sketched Borders. Sets 2-7 can be used together to design an endless array of gorgeous Eastern prints for your digital scrapbooking layouts, paper crafts, and altered art projects.

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.
