Ever wish that you could be a Product Designer for Scrap Girls?

Well, now's your chance to apply!

If you are interested, please forward the following items to [email protected].

The subject line must read: Product Designer Application.

  1. 3 color palettes that you might use as a basis for designing collections.

  2. A collection mini, consisting of 6 background papers, 1 "sheet" of embellishments, and 1 "sheet" of word art.

    A "sheet" consists of a grouping of items that will fit on an 8.5x11 document. Take care to make sure that the collection mini's color set is well balanced and that it has an idea that ties it together. It should contain enough embellishments and word art to be useful to someone who wishes to make several layouts from it. Also, take care that the embellishments are not a grouping of a small number of items that have just been re-colored. This is your opportunity to show your versatility and skill-level.

  3. At least one sample layout using the collection mini.

  4. A brush set with 3 brushes.

  5. A paper template set (like our ScrapSimple Paper Templates) with 2 papers.

  6. An embellishment template set (like our ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates) with 3 embellishments.

Also, answer the following questions in the body of your application email.

  1. Approximately, how much would you like to earn each month?
  2. Approximately, how many hours do you have to dedicate to design work each week?
  3. What are your goals as it pertains to design work?
  4. Why are you interested in working with Scrap Girls?

Other instructions: Save your files as 600px wide, 72 dpi. Place them in one zipped folder and forward with your application email.

Life Muse by Ro

Rozanne Paxman
Rozanne Paxman

The dancer spun around the room, her soft pink tutu wafting about her like a billowy cloud. She saw her partner reach out his arms towards her. She ran toward him and jumped, throwing her arms out wide. He spun her around, and she noticed the Baroque gold decorations on the wall begin to blur.

Suddenly, the dancer heard a gruff voice yell, "Come to dinner!"

The dancer closed her ears and continued to float in her partner's arms.

"Come to dinner – now!" the voice insisted.

The dancer closed her eyes and willed herself not to hear the voice.

"Did you hear me?" the voice said, now right next to her ear. "I told you to come to dinner. The food's getting cold."

The dancer let out a long, annoyed sigh as her partner placed her on the floor. Couldn't the owner of the voice see how much she was enjoying herself? Didn't the owner of the voice understand how important her dancing was to her? Didn't the owner of the voice see that the dancer would rather spin around a room in her soft pink tutu than eat?

The dancer, depressed and discouraged by the state of affairs, followed the gruff voice to the dinner table. As she sat down, she said, "What are we having for dinner?"

Even though the long table was surrounded by diners, no one answered her question.

Trying again, she said, "Could someone pass me the potatoes?"

Again, no one replied. "Why am I here?" she thought. "I could be dancing."

Suddenly, the dancer noticed a bright light shining in her eyes. The light grew brighter and brighter, and she held her arms over her face in an effort to block it.  When that didn't work, she gathered her tutu and tried to pull it over her head. Unfortunately, the tutu ripped and she found herself choking on it. But then she realized that she wasn't choking on her tutu at all. She was smothering herself with a white flannel pillow case.

And then... she sat up... ummm... I sat up and said to nobody at all, "I wish I was a dancer wearing a pink tutu."

Years ago, I heard a woman on a television show teach that when you have a memorable dream, it is useful to try to figure out what it means by assuming that you play all of the parts. So in this dream, I was the dancer, the partner, the gruff voice, and the diners who were ignoring me.

Once I looked at it this way, I realized that my dream did have meaning.

  1. I feel free when I am creating, working, and learning. I get in the "zone" and begin to enjoy myself so that I lose track of time. Having to take care of basic things – like eating – becomes annoying. I feel supported and happy when I am creating.

  2. When my internal critic starts yelling at me, suggesting that I am wasting my time, I begin to feel anxious. I feel judged and dismissed even though there are parts of me that believe I am adding beauty and value to the world when I do what I do best.

  3. If I stop doing what I enjoy the most because it is hard to resist my inner critic, her voice just gets louder. She says that she was right all the time and laughs at me for resisting her wisdom. The more I listen to my inner critic, the harder it becomes to resist her. Eventually, I want to escape by hiding out.

I have a feeling that I am not alone in my struggle to overcome my inner critic. I suspect that many of you also find yourself engaging far too often in a war to silence your inner critic, and often, the effort feels like the greatest challenge of your life.

One solution? Stand up to it to your inner critic. Stare it in the face – literally. Go to a mirror, look into your eyes, and say things like, "It's time for you to knock it off. It's time for you to go away and quit bugging me. I'm not going to listen to you anymore so you might as well give up."

And then get out your iPod and dance around the room - with your arms spread wide!

Photography Friday

Rule of Thirds

Have you ever heard of the design principle called the Rule of Thirds? It's a principle which states that most designs can be made more interesting by visually dividing the page into thirds - vertically and horizontally - and placing your most important elements within the points where those dividing lines intersect. Of course, this principle can be used on your digital scrapbooking layouts, but did you know that using the principle of the Rule of Thirds can help you take better photos of your friends and family? It's true! Let me show you how.

In the example below, you'll see the first image is a typical, centered photograph with the subject in the middle of the image.

Photography Tutorial: Subject appears in center of photo.

If we apply the Rule of Thirds principle, you'll see that there is nothing of interest in photo that falls on any of the dynamic points.

Photography Tutorial: Subject falls outside Rule of Thirds points.

Now, in order to fix something like this, I could have moved my camera just slightly so that the subject's eyes were in one of the focal points and then taken the photo. Some cameras even come equipped with these Rule of Thirds gridlines that show up when you look through the viewfinder at your subject. If you're not sure whether your camera has this technique, check your manual.

However, on this day, I had to snap this photo fast and didn't have time to move my camera to frame it better. So instead, I used the Crop Tool in my photo editing software to "fix" the photo. Let me show you how!

First, I selected the Crop Tool (or you can use the keyboard shortcut C).

Photography Tutorial: Use the Crop tool.
larger view

Then, I clicked and dragged the mouse from the bottom right corner to the top left corner. While holding down the Shift key so that the proportions of the crop stay the same, I clicked and dragged the top right corner down towards the middle of the photo. That allowed me to move the subject's eyes into one of the four focal points that I've previously mentioned. Then I pushed the Enter key, and the photo was cropped to a more dynamic look.

Photography Tutorial: Crop the photo following Rule of Thirds principle.

You can see that this photo is more engaging and has a more pleasing overall look. And you'll notice that I only used one point of interest on the Rule of Thirds, but you could use more than one if your photo has more than one point of interest.

Photography Tutorial: Example of a photo that follows the Rule of Thirds.

And there you have it! Now I've got one of my favorite types of photos - a photo of my child – and it's ready to scrap!

Tips From The Pros

Fastest Way to Make a Digital Collage

Note: Tutorial created using Photoshop CS3 with Windows XP

Ever wondered how to use those big sheets of PNG files that come in Scrap Girls alphabets, word art, and embellishment files? You know the ones, right?

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Example of Word Art sheet.

They look like this.

Because they are full sheets, they are easy to flatten and print when you make craft projects, paper layouts, gift albums, etc. You can also use them to create quick and easy digital scrapbooking layouts. Drag-and-drop them into your layout to get an instant collage.

Here’s how...

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Example of an Alpha sheet.

Searching through Bella Marie Collection Biggie, I found SBA_BellaMarie_WA_Sheet2.png and SBA_BellaMarie_Alpha_Sheet.png.

Drag-and-drop the PNG files into your digital scrapbooking layout, and arrange them part of the way off the page. SBA_BellaMarie_WA_Sheet2 even comes with a handy photo strip frame and stitched journal lines. You can duplicate the PNG sheet and use it twice on one layout. When you turn SBA_BellaMarie_Alpha_Sheet on its side, it gives the layout a bit of an industrial edge. Add your photos, write your journaling, and you will have a layout done in 10 minutes.
