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 sample 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 sample brush set with 3 brushes.
  5. A sample paper template set (like our ScrapSimple Paper Templates) with 2 papers.
  6. A sample embellishment template set (like our ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates) with 3 embellishments.

    Examples of all of these products can be found in our Boutique.

Also, please 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?
  5. What software do you use?
  6. Include any other information that you think would be helpful as we make our decision.

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

DEADLINE: Friday, July 13, 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time)

Notifications of results will be sent to all applicants by Friday, July 20.

What is Scrap Girls looking for in a new designer?

  1. Talent
  2. Desire to work with Scrap Girls and be a committed, active member of our team
  3. Work ethic
  4. Software and designing skills

If a talented person comes along whose skills are not quite what they might be, but we feel they would be a super-committed, dynamic member of our team if given a little help, we may choose to put them through an apprentice program.

We look forward to seeing your application!

Tips From The Pros

How to Mix and Match Items from More Than One Digital Scrapbooking Collection

Tutorial created using Adobe Photoshop CS5 with Windows Vista

Mix and match. Sounds like a fun idea, doesn't it? You can have that kind of fun with your digital scrapbooking supplies! There's nothing wrong with making a layout with the supplies from just one collection, and there are plenty of reasons to do so. But sometimes you may need or want to use items from multiple collections to get the look you want.

I have a picture of my sons that I want to use on my digital scrapbook layout. I want to choose paper colors to coordinate with some of the colors in the picture. The main paper will be a neutral paper from Firefighter Collection Biggie - the middle paper in the screenshot below. I can use an orange paper from the same collection, but that collection does not include a blue paper. That's where the mix-and-match idea comes in! I looked through my supplies and decided that the blue paper from Mini Golf Collection Mini is what I want. You can see the orange and blue papers below.

Digital Scrapbook Layout Tutorial: Select background papers from multiple collections.

You can mix and match your embellishments, as well. Pay close attention to the colors, however. For instance, using red items from several different collections might give you several variations of red. Some could be more pinkish, some more maroon, some more fire-engine red, etc. Of course, using red flowers from one collection and a green vine from a different collection avoids the color clash issue.

In the digital layout that I'm making, I'm going to use two sets of alphas. I know that one of them will be the duct tape set from Handy Dandy Collection Biggie. Now I have to decide another set to use with it. When you use two different alphas, think about how they contrast with each other. When I looked at the alpha from Sandbox Fun Collection Biggie next to the duct tape set, I didn't think they worked well together.

Digital Scrapbook Layout Tutorial: Alphas from these collections do not work well together.

Both sets are a bit chunky. And the colors together don't give me the "pop" that I want. Let me see how the black alpha from Firefighter Collection Biggie looks.

Digital Scrapbook Layout Tutorial: Look for alphas that coordinate together.

That's better! I like the skinny alpha mixed with the chunky one. The black is a nice contrast to the grey. I'll go with this combination.

I hope you find it fun to mix and match items from more than one collection when you are making digital scrapbook layouts. The combinations you can come up with are practically endless!

Crops and Chats

Creative Cards Chat

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, July 4th - 12 Noon EDT

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon EDT for the 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 July 4th, we'll do a Stars and Stripes Challenge. Use some stripes and at least one star 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

June's Forum Game: Re-JUNE-venate!

We helped you jumpstart your January and now it's time to re-JUNE-venate your focus on scrapbooking! Join us on the Scrap Girls Forum for "Re-JUNE-venate!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from June 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require Forum participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59pm EDT on June 30th will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 Gift Certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page- into a drawing for one of three $3 Gift Certificates.

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

Contests

June Monthly Layout Contest: June is full of weddings and graduations – a time of pomp and circumstance. For June's contest, we want to see your wedding, graduation or other special occasion layouts. Post your layouts in the June Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight EDT on June 30th and you could one of the two people who will win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Please be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties.
