Note from Debbie: Since becoming President of Scrap Girls, it's been fascinating to learn about all the pieces that come together to make the website you love. What has impressed me the most is the fantastic group of women behind the scenes who make it all happen. Their skills and talents are immeasurable and as unique as they are. Meeting them has been so enjoyable for me that I want to spend the next few weeks letting you get to know them better, too.

If I Can Dream It, She Can Draw It – Syndee Nuckles

So far, one of the great parts of running Scrap Girls has been thinking up all the creative sales we like to run. The best part about this task has been seeing my wacky ideas turned into marketing graphics. It's especially fun because it means that I have gotten to know the one-and-only Syndee Nuckles – the creative hand behind all the ads you see on our site.

One thing that really highlights Syndee's style is her versatility. There is almost nothing she can't draw and no style she can't work in. This versatility comes from her years spent in the scrapbooking and design world. She has done everything from teaching stamping classes to managing a scrapbooking store to having her own design website. Her skills also come from a variety of sources, but mainly she is self-taught. Her favorite compliment is when someone calls her work "eclectic."

When designing a new ad, she usually starts with the theme first, then picks the colors and finally adds the text. She takes her inspiration from a variety of sources and is always on the lookout for images and colors that are eye-catching and bold. Her favorite part of doing this job for Scrap Girls is seeing her handiwork in the Newsletter and thinking to herself, "I did that!" She says that feeling never gets old.

When not helping Scrap Girls or designing kits for her own great collection, she is the head of a very creative clan. Both of her daughters have their own blogs (one is about fashion design and one reviews classic movies). Additionally, her younger daughter, Kailey, is an aspiring digital designer, and every so often, she will sneak an embellishment into one of Syndee's kits. Then there are her two younger sons, who both create movies in iMovie, as well as paint and draw in Illustrator. And completing the picture is her husband who has a background in the computer tech industry, though he is now disabled with Multiple Sclerosis.

If you love our sale ads, be sure to let Syndee know and send her a note on the Scrap Girls Forum – or purchase one of her great kits! And if you ever have a cool idea for a sale, send me an email at [email protected]. If we use it, you will get to see how much fun it is to have your idea turned into a stunning ad, too!

- Debbie

P.S. I loved how much intrigue and suspense the "Something's Coming" ad has generated – so much so that I've decided to keep you on the edge of your seat for just a few more days! But trust me, IT'S COMING!

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, August 29th - 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 August 29th, we'll do a Photo Manipulation Challenge. Create a layout using a photo you have manipulated in some way - change it to black and white or sepia, remove a distraction, cut out the subject - anything goes!

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

August's Forum Game: BINGO

Join us for an exciting game of August BINGO on the Scrap Girls Forum!! Pick 25 words from the list provided and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Forum username" by Wednesday August 1st (Midnight EDT) in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Thursday, August 2nd. If you miss the first round deadline, you can still play! Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.

Each day (Monday through Saturday), a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.

Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!

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