Special Event

Digital Scrapbooking Day 2012

It's Digital Scrapbooking Day!

It's our day to celebrate everything that is great about digital scrapbooking, and we have a lot going on today!

Special Chat and Crop Schedule:
We have a full line-up of events going on in our Chat Room today with a little something for everyone. Be sure to check our schedule in this newsletter.

Pick a Favorite Layout Contest:
Do you love looking through the layouts in the Scrap Girls Gallery? Today we are having a contest that really shows off the best of digital scrapbooking. We want you to find your favorite layout in the Gallery and post a link to it on our blog. It can be your own, your friend's, or a total stranger's. On November 4th, we will pick a random winner to receive a $10 gift certificate. But, in addition, we will also award a $10 gift certificate to the creator of the winning layout and feature their layout on our Facebook page. This contest is a great way to spread your love of digital scrapbooking.

For details on the contest and info on how to post your favorite layout, visit the Scrap Girls Blog.

More Flip-Pal News:
On October 31, we wrapped up our contest to win a free Flip-Pal mobile scanner. To enter the contest, you had to leave a comment on our blog saying what you would do with a Flip-Pal mobile scanner. We had so many creative ideas submitted that it was nearly impossible to pick a favorite. Some of the ideas I loved included scanning:

  • Antique player piano rolls
  • Family Bibles with written scripts
  • The menus, excursion ticket stubs, and even the carpeting from a recent cruise
  • Antique collector plates
  • The nameplate on a newborn's hospital crib
  • Crocheted and tatted doilies
  • Antique jewelry for insurance purposes
  • Family recipe cards, stains and all
  • Artwork to scale down and hang in a dollhouse
  • Textured surfaces like stucco walls and car upholstery

And because it's Digital Scrapbooking Day, I have to mention this one...

  • All my glue-and-paper scrapbook layouts from the 1990s!

So, with all these great ideas, I bet you are dying to know who won. Congratulations go out to Jennifer (Jenna) Hamilton! Jenna had about 15 great ideas of what she would use the Flip-Pal for, but the one that won her the contest was this: "I would also use it on little baby feet or hands to include with a friend or client's baby photos." Jenna's Flip-Pal and happy red Carry Case are on their way to her, and over the next year, we will feature Jenna and her Flip-Pal adventures in our newsletter.

If you didn't win our contest, but you really want a Flip-Pal now, I have some great news for you, too! Starting today Scrap Girls is an official etailer for Flip-Pal. That means that you can buy a Flip-Pal right from our Boutique, under our new "Cool Stuff" category, and it will be sent to you by Flip-Pal. Not only is this super convenient for you, but it also means that your Flip-Pal purchase will help support the Scrap Girls newsletter and keep all the great tutorials and freebies coming your way. If you have been thinking of getting a Flip-Pal or adding one to your Christmas wish list, there has never been a better time to do it.

I hope you have a wonderful Digital Scrapbooking Day and that you have the time to create something amazing today!

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 4th in the U.S.!
Eastern Time zone is affected as the clocks "fall back" one hour.
Our chat times below reflect that change. We look forward to seeing you in the upcoming chats!

 

Creative Cards Chat
Tuesday, November 6th - 8:00 p.m. ET

Do you use your Digi-supplies to make cards? Do you want to? Instead of going to the store every time you need a card you can save money and have fun making cards with your digi stash! Make a note of any cards you might need for the upcoming month and Join April (April Showers) for the once a month Card Chat on the first Tuesday of each month at 8 PM Eastern Time. Can't wait to see you there!

div

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, November 7th - 12 Noon ET

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon ET 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 November 7th, we'll have a Color Challenge! Create a layout using the rich warm tones of autumn.

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

November's Forum Game: Products Picks Game

This November, we are playing the Products Picks game where we encourage you to stroll through the aisles of the boutique and do a little window shopping.

Each Monday through Saturday in November, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post the name of one or two product designers in this Product Picks game thread. You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then head over to the Product Picks game thread and share the product name, boutique link, and a brief explanation of why you chose that product.

At the end of the month, members who haves posted links to 41 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 Gift Certificates. Members who have posted links to 16-40 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 Gift Certificates. And members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates.

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