While one girl's picture appears here on the Newsletter, Scrap Girls is really a community of talented designers, techy gals, thoughtful contributors and fantastic customers. We are ALL so happy to have you as part of the Scrap Girls community and we are very grateful for your support.
Don't forget to check out the Retirement Sale section of the Boutique. Items in this section are always on sale for 30% off. The items you will find during any particular month will be discontinued permanently on the 5th of the following month. So if you see something you like, grab it while you can!
OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU
Suggest a Challenge, Win a Prize! Have a great idea for a Gallery layout challenge? Submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your challenge idea is chosen, you will win a prize! Friday will be Customer Challenge Day, so keep an eye out on the Message Board calendar. It will be fun to see what YOU come up with for us to do!
Scrap Girls sends a birthday gift to each of our Forum members!
Of course, it is a surprise what you will receive because birthday presents should alway be a surprise! Make sure your Forum email address is current and that you have the correct birthdate entered into your profile to participate.
If you are interested, please forward the following items to email@example.com.
The subject line must read: Product Designer Application.
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.
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:
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.
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!
Save 30% off this Paper Mini today only!
Each week, we will be spotlighting one designer and one of their favorite products. This product will be on sale for one day only at 30% off!
This week's designer spotlight is on Ang Campbell. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...
"I was excited to have the assignment to create a set of digital scrapbooking papers with a playground theme for last year's Staycation event. My kids play at the park several times a week and I knew having a little playground paper pack would come in very handy to scrap all the park play pictures I take! My favorite is the grassy paper because it's perfectly versatile for so many of my outdoor photos."
1. What is the first thing you do when you get up in the morning?
Since my alarm clock is on my phone and I have to pick up my phone to turn off my alarm, I inevitably open my email on my phone and take a quick peek at what arrived in my inbox while I was sleeping. I'm a little obsessed with checking my email.
2. Soda, coffee or other?
Can you believe I've never ever had a cup of coffee? I do love the smell of it though. I'm kind of a Diet 7-Up or Diet Pepsi girl, but I'm trying to eliminate carbonation and stick with water (which I also really love, especially when it's ice cold.)

New Member Chat
Tuesday, July 10th - 9:00PM EDT
Join Pat (PBarnes) for the New Member Chat at 9pm ET in the Live Chat room lobby.

All are welcome, new and long time members included. You do need to have Java installed on your computer to access the Live Chat.
High Noon Crop
Wednesday, July 11th - 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 11th, we'll do a Texture Challenge! Create a layout using textures - either a richly detailed photograph, a textured paper, embellishments, whatever! Add some texture!
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!
July's Forum Game: Spotlight on the Boutique
Each day of July (with the exception of Sundays), a member of the Welcoming Committee will post an image spotlighting a small circle of the layout you are to search for in the Scrap Girls Boutique. If the layout is not identified by the following morning, a second spotlight circle will be added to the layout; this will be repeated until the product is identified.
All you have to do to participate is search the boutique for the layout and post a link to the product page in the official game thread. Only one guess per member per day is allowed. You can find more specific details in the forum game thread.
Three $10 gift certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique will be awarded. The winners will be randomly chosen from all the members that correctly identify a product throughout the month.
For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
July Monthly Layout Contest: Hot! Hot! Hot! In the northern hemisphere, July is generally a month of very warm temperatures. For July's layout contest, we want you to scrap about what you do to stay cool – whether it'is in July or December. Post your layouts in the July Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight EDT on July 31st 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.
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!
