Finding Your Way Around the Scrap Girls Blog

Recently, the Scrap Girls Blog has received a makeover. We've moved categories around and made the blog easier to navigate. I know that many of you, myself included, love following blogs, but just can't find the time to do it. This can be much easier to do if you know your way around. Let me show you around...

First, to get to the Scrap Girls Blog, you can either go to the main Scrap Girls site, www.scrapgirls.com and click on Blog (found to the right on the menu bar).

Scrap Girls Blog Tour: Blog link on home page.
larger view

Or you can go directly to it using this link: http://www.scrapgirls.com/blog/

Of course, there are some of you who are saying... "I'm too busy to read blogs every day." I find that it's nice to be able to quickly read the blog at your own convenience. To do this, you can subscribe to the Scrap Girls Blog by RSS feed (see arrow 1) or by email (2).

Scrap Girls Blog Tour: How to subscribe to the Scrap Girls blog.
larger view

Subscribing by RSS feed via Google, Yahoo, etc., gives you the most options and is easily readable on any device that has Internet access... iPod, iPad, tablets, etc., which you can use anywhere with Wi-Fi... even in bed before you go to sleep. (Ro has admitted to some before-bed blog reading on many occasions!)

Scrap Girls Blog Tour: Blog updates via RSS Readers.

The top category on the left is Contests (3). Scrap Girls runs occasional contests (about one per month), and this is where the posts will show. Don't miss out on these contests, because the prizes are amazing!

The Latest News category (4) is updated regularly with the digital scrapbooking sales in the Scrap Girls Boutique and the new monthly Scrap Girls and ScrapSimple Clubs.

Latest Posts (5) shows all of the latest posts, including sales, Scrap Girls and ScrapSimple clubs, crafts, digital scrapbooking tutorials, and more. Click More Posts from this Category (6) to dig deeper for more tutorials, more ideas, etc.

The Digital Scrapbooking Tutorials and Printable Cards and Crafts (7) categories show a variety of digital scrapbooking techniques and printable card/craft tutorials that are fun and easy for everybody to use. Being an avid scrapbooker myself, I have learned a lot of new things from these tutorials written by the Scrap Girls designers themselves.

Scrap Girls Blog Tour: Different sections of the blog archives and help.

The Other Tutorials (8) category shows different tutorials using Scrap Girls products for other uses such as how to use ScrapSimple Timeline Cover Templates and photo editing.

The Help Center (9) is the category to look in if you have any questions about Scrap Girls, the clubs, coupons, etc.

The Archives (10) category shown on the right gives you access to every post made on the Scrap Girls Blog divided into months. This is a great resource if you know there is a post you read about a certain topic but it's not on the blog homepage.

The Newsletter Archive (10) has individual posts for each month that include a link to each Scrap Girls daily newsletter and Weekly Roundup newsletter in the past. These are also divided into months so they are easy to find.

And finally, you can view the Recent Comments (11), Recent Posts (11) and Calendar at a quick glance, located at the bottom of the blog.

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 10am MT for the East Coast High Noon Crop. All coasts and time zones are welcome! These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes, simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week.

On May 30th, we'll do a geometric challenge! Create a layout using at least one triangle somewhere on your page!

Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing you! Hope to see you in the chat room!

Games

May's Forum Game: Boutique Alphabet Game!

The Boutique Alphabet Game is back! Do you remember playing the game "I am going on a _____ hunt and bringing..." where each player listed items starting with a specific letter? We are playing a similar game on the Scrap Girls Forum during the month of May. Each day except Sundays, a team member will post a new theme and starting letter in the game thread. Members then will search the Scrap Girls Boutique for a product that fits the theme and post it in the game thread. Entries are to follow the alphabet starting with the letter posted with the theme each day. Only one product per letter per round will be counted and products may not be used more than once. Collections and their individual parts count as one product. Time stamps will be used to determine credit in the case of duplicate letter or product posts. There is a limit of three game posts per person each day and another player must post before posting again. Member names will be added to a drawing based on the number of qualified product links posted in the thread.

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the month and winners will be announced in the June 9th Newsletter. Gift certificates will be awarded as follows: $15 SG Gift Certificate for first place, $10 SG Gift Certificate for second place and a $5 SG Gift Certificate for third place.

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

Contests

May Monthly Layout Contest: May is a big month in the northern hemisphere for flowers. For this month's layout contest, we're going to give a little twist on the usual flower photos. We want you to try your hand at extreme close-ups. Be creative in point of view and angle. Even most point-and-shoot cameras have a close-up mode. Do the best you can with the equipment you have and scrap a layout with a photo or two – or three. Your submission will be judged on its merit as a layout, not necessarily the photography. Post your layouts in the May Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MDT on May 31st. Be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. Two layouts will be selected to 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!
