Special Event

Scrap Girls 8th Anniversary Party!

It's a Party!

This week we are pulling out all the stops to bring you a weeklong party because we have two fantastic reasons to celebrate.

First, it's our anniversary! Today - Saturday, October 20th - marks eight great years of Scrap Girls. To recognize this occasion, we are releasing a great new kit called Story Teller that features all things digital scrapbooking. This kit is a collaboration kit that a whole team of our designers created. And the best thing of all? A full 100% of the sales of this kit go to our favorite charity, Food for the Poor. Additionally, many of our designers have created small coordinating kits that go with Story Teller, and these will be offered at a special price all week long, too.

Our Scrap Girls Forum will be the place to be this week with special chats and games, including some old favorites brought back for this week only. And there will be prizes galore given out for all the chats and challenges!

Second, we are celebrating the Grand Opening of our new Boutique. We have a new look and a ton of great new features that make shopping at Scrap Girls more fun than ever. Every day this week, we will be celebrating these new features on our blog with a daily giveaway. That's right - you can win just for putting something on your Wish List, or leaving a product review. And at the end of the week, we will take all the entries and draw a winner for a Grand Prize - $50 to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Check the blog to see what the contest of the day will be.

I hope you join us in the fun all week long!

- Debbie

What Scrap Girls Means to Me

During this week of celebrating Scrap Girls' 8th Anniversary, we asked readers to post to our blog and tell us “What Scrap Girls Means to Me.” Here is a random sampling of their heart-warming comments. (Want to read more? Dash over to the blog to read the rest!)

 

"Scrap Girls is my refuge from the crazy of the day, my springboard to creating, my one-room schoolhouse (a really big room) to learn digital scrapping, my liberal arts college to challenge my skills and knowledge and view of the creative digital world, my corner scrapping boutique (open 24/7!) where the owners and staff care about the patrons, and the customer service always goes above and beyond!"

- B&K Mom

div

"Scrap Girls is my passion, a true women's Internet scrapbooking cafe (only I bring my own Java!). Scrap Girls provides an engaging arena of so many beautiful women inspiring others with their 'fantamazing' artistic photo-journaling and creations. Scrap Girls artists possess unique, God-given talents that thrill so many of us, especially on the 1st and 15th of the month, as we utilize their digital creations to make our own meaningful expressions!"

- Laura B.

div

"Scrap Girls means burning up my Visa and spending all my money because I can't resist the wonderful little goodies my eyes see! The designers are the best in the digital scrapping world! I have made very good friends with quality ladies. When I'm feeling down, this is my go-to for cheering up. Thanks to all my BFFs on Scrap Girls."

- Andrea-rose

div

"For years, I wanted to try scrapbooking, but I was always afraid to try. Then a few years ago, I accidentally ran across this interesting site called Scrap Girls. I signed up for the newsletter, began to 'lurk' on the Forum, read tutorials, and started my stash of freebies. Finally, when my 9th grandbaby was born, I decided to give it a try. I have truly enjoyed the experience. The inhabitants of this little purple place are friendly and very willing to go the extra mile to help!"

- Deb C.

div

"For me, Scrap Girls is my 'Cheers.' Everyone might not know my name, but they're always glad I came. Everyone is so friendly, helpful, encouraging, comforting. The designers are amazingly talented and creative. The customer service should be the gold standard for all companies to aspire to."

- Kelly

div

"Scrap Girls is a place that I can go to learn anything I am having a problem with. I adore the designers and the staff of Scrap Girls. I attended the 2009 Scrap Girls Convention in Salt Lake City, and it was so special to be able to actually meet the designers and other scrappers in person."

- Janet

div

"I am new to the Scrap Girls world, and I am absolutely enthralled! It has become my go-to place for inspiration and eye candy. I know that when I purchase something from this site, I am in for a treat!"

- Jeannie Horton

div

Scrap Girls, Etc. is a column pulling bits and pieces from all over Scrap Girls. Stay tuned as Scrap Girls' team members bring you tutorials, musings, recipes, interviews, design/software tips and tricks, layout walk-throughs, and who knows what else!

Member of the Month Image

Member of the Month: Hilary

Hilary
Scrap Girls' Member of the Month - October 2012
Member Name: englishrose

1. What program do you use to digitally scrapbook?

PSE 9.

2. Are you a Mac or a PC?

PC.

3. Tell us the make and model of digital camera that you use.

Panasonic Lumix FZ45 - more than a point-and-shoot but less than a DSLR!

4. Name one thing that every beginner digital scrapbooker should know.

Layouts are meant to be seen by other people. No matter how dissatisfied you are with a page, show it to a member of your family or a friend. You will be pleasantly surprised by their comments. They will be pleased that you have taken time to record an event or a memory that might otherwise have been lost. Then share your work in the Scrap Girls Gallery. There's always plenty of support from other scrapbookers and helpful suggestions if you ask for it.

5. If you could be transformed into a digital scrapbooking embellishment, what would you choose and why?

A tough one this is, but I think I would be a brush. They can add weight behind a photograph or give an elegant swirl inside a cluster. They are real jacks of all trades – a bit like me!

6. What time of day do you find that you do your best scrapbooking?

Night time mostly - or any time when the house is quiet.

7. What is your favorite snack?

Milk chocolate – preferably with nuts and raisins.

8. What is your least favorite household chore?

Dusting – where does it all come from?!

9. Finish this sentence. "I couldn't live without..."

My family – of course! But also having the opportunity to learn through books, adult education classes, talk radio, TV - anything that will give me a tingle of excitement when I find out something new.

10. What's your current favorite layout that you've done?
