Flowers in Your Hair

I have always considered myself a bit girly. On certain days, however, you would never know that. Working from home, it is too easy to just throw my hair in a ponytail, keep comfy clothes on, and not bother with make-up. (I'm sure some of you stay-at-home moms can understand and relate.)

But lately, I have wanted to express a little more of my feminine side, even if it's just a little bit, without dressing to the nines, which wouldn't be practical. Going all out doesn't fit into my lifestyle. But in the past few months, I have started taking more care of me, which sounds logical, though sometimes not so practical.

I do think it's important, so I started with better diet and regular exercise with the Scrap Girls Shred Group. Then I moved on to painting my nails, wearing perfume, and now adding flowers to my hair. I found I've really enjoyed this little bit of the "old me" starting to emerge from my past.

So take a little time for yourself! You will feel better and those around you can also benefit from the little sparkle in your eye and the smile on your face.

Tips From The Pros Image

What Are ScrapSimple Card Templates?

Note: Tutorial created using using Photoshop Elements 7.0 with Windows Vista

That time of the year is quickly approaching - the holiday season! If you're like me, this time of the year can get crazy. It's filled with last-minute gift buying, trying to find the perfect touch to finish off those gifts, and evenings spent writing cards to friends and family you haven't talked to for awhile, filling them in on what's happened through the year.

One way to help with these last-minute finishing touches is to create unique, personal items for your friends and family by using ScrapSimple Card Templates.

But perhaps you’re thinking, What is a card template?

A ScrapSimple Card Template is really just a scaled-down version of a ScrapSimple Digital Layout Template. The layout of the card is already created for you. You simple add your own paper, embellishments, and even photos to make a personalized item. Look for more detailed instructions on how to work with ScrapSimple Card Templates in our free ebook Scrap Girls ScrapSimple Instructions Handbook.

In the Scrap Girls Boutique, we have several different card and craft templates, and you can find these here. While any of these can be customized to make holiday cards, here are some that were designed specifically for the holidays.

ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Holiday Gift Card Holders

What I love about digital scrapbooking is the flexibility of digital products – in other words, there are so many different ways a product can be used, and card templates are no exception. Many of us keep up with friends and family through such social media venues such as Facebook or a personal blog. Why not make a virtual card using a card template and post it online? It’s easy to convert a card template to a virtual card design. Let me show you how!

Let’s start with this template from ScrapSimple Card Templates: Christmas Cards.

What Are ScrapSimple Card Templates? Tutorial Screen Shot 5

The right side of the card is perfect for creating our virtual greeting, but the left side (the blank back of a printed card) isn’t needed. To adjust this, simply take your Crop Tool, select the right side, and crop it to keep the part of the template you want and subsequently deleting the left side which you don’t need.

What Are ScrapSimple Card Templates? Tutorial Screen Shot 6

Finish it off by clipping papers to the designs, adding your own personal touches, and you'll have your own little card that you can virtually share with all your loved ones.

The next time you are looking for that special finishing touch or last-minute card, don't forget to check out the ScrapSimple Card templates in the Scrap Girls Boutique.

You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then head over to the Product Picks game thread and share the product name, Boutique link, and a brief explanation of why you chose that product.

At the end of the month, members who haves posted links to 42 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 Gift Certificates. Members who have posted links to 16-41 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 Gift Certificates. And members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates.

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