1 Scrap Girls Movember Collection
1 Scrap Girls Movember Collection

This year Scrap Girls is joining a world-wide fund raiser known as Movember. At the beginning of November, men around the globe start growing moustaches to bring awareness to men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. I know very few of us will ever develop these diseases, but we all have fathers, brothers, husbands, or friends who might. This is a great opportunity to show our support of them and have a little fun at the same time.

To help celebrate this great cause, Scrap Girls has created this little Movember kit. 100% of the proceeds from this kit will be donated to the Movember.

Value Pack: Family Matters
Value Pack: Family Matters

Family matters in this digital scrapbooking collection. Textured and taped papers in beautiful warm unisex colors, tape and wire embellishments, and family focused word art compliment any layout. Suitable for celebrating your family everyday, but works great with fall and thanksgiving inspired layouts as well.

You Have a Story to Tell...

...and we want to hear it! Scrapbookers are all about telling their stories – family stories, personal stories, children's and grandchildren's stories. Why, even the word "history" has a story in it! And my-oh-my, we love history around here.

Make some history of your own this year by putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, to be more precise, and tell us a Christmas story from your own experience.

Last year, we were blown away by the incredible stories that were submitted to our 12 Days of Christmas Story Contest. This year, we know you've got more stories just waiting to be told. We want to hear your stories of Christmas past, of Christmas memories, marvels, magic, or miracles. Was there a time when you saw something wonderful happen at Christmas or during the holiday season? Can you recall a first Christmas or holiday memory with your loved one, your child, or maybe the last Christmas with your great-grandmother? Maybe it's a story handed down through the generations in your family. We love to share good stories around here, and we don't mind having to grab a tissue, so write with all your heart to speak to our hearts.

We will select 12 stories - with one story revealed in our newsletter from December 13-24, every day, including Sundays. Just to keep things interesting, we're not going to tell anyone if they have been selected ahead of time. You'll just have to hop out of bed every morning, rush to your computer, and open up your Scrap Girls Newsletter with all the wonder of a child on Christmas morning and look to see if your story was published that day!

Here are the Submission Guidelines, so start those creative juices flowing!

  1. The deadline for submissions is Midnight (ET), Friday, December 7. Email your story to [email protected] with a subject line of My 12 Days Story. With your email, please include the following attachments:

    • Your story: Story length - maximum of 700 words. Your story must be true (to the best of your knowledge), and it must tell a story/event centered around a holiday theme, not just a collection of thoughts about why you love this time of year. One entry per person. Send your story in MS Word or something similar. At the top of your story, include your name, Forum username (if you have one), your mailing address, and your email address. At the bottom of your story, write a few sentences about yourself – where you live, what you do, your family, your job, your hobbies, etc.

    • Scrap Girls publication release (download it here)

    • One image/layout (optional): You may submit one image or layout that is related to your story - but only one, so make it good! Images should be no more than 300 pixels long on either width or height. If you submit a layout, we need two sizes: a 300-pixel image (72 dpi) and a 600-pixel image (72 dpi). Please show off our beautiful Scrap Girls products in your layout and include a supply list of products used (along with links to those products in the Boutique). Even if the product is retired, please include it in the list (without a link). By the way, submitting a photo or layout will not drastically improve the likelihood of a story being published, but it's a nice accompaniment to give our readers.

  2. A few miscellaneous details:

    • We reserve the right to edit the story as needed for clarity, grammar, punctuation, length, etc., though we will make every effort not to change the meaning of what you write. However, the better you write, the less we have to edit, and the happier you will make our editor.

    • If you submitted a story last year that was not chosen, you may resubmit it this year!

  3. Hmmm, what have we forgotten? Ah, yes, the prizes! What is a contest without prizes?!

    • Everyone who submits a story will get a JIF 6 kit that coordinates with our "12 Days of Christmas Stories" this year! That's right – you get a prize just for entering! And this JIF 6 will only be given to our story tellers, not available in the Boutique. You want it? Then write a story and send it in!

    • The 12 winners will get what everyone needs at this time of year – a little extra cash! If your story is published in our newsletter, you'll receive a $25 Visa gift card.

We look forward to hearing your story as we launch our annual 12 Days of Christmas celebration!

Tips From The Pros

The Scrap Girls Club allows you to get all of the newest looks while saving money! It is perfect for anyone who wants beautiful, coordinated digital scrapbooking supplies that are easy to use. You get all the products shown above a $40.59 value, for $9.99 or less! Plus, each month we will help you find new ways to use your club contents to the fullest with this article full of ideas, tips, and projects to get your creativity going!

Members-Only club content! Now Scrap Girls Club members receive three exclusive, members-only Club products every month! These new products include a JIFFY Easy Page Album - five layered PSD files of your favorite Club layouts designed by the professionals at Scrap Girls just for this Club, one Designer's Gift item - a product chosen by the Club's designer, and a Color Palette which you can use to coordinate your photos and ScrapSimple products with this month's Club to make it an even bigger value!

Personalizing JIFFY Easy Pages

Article written using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Windows Vista

I love the first day of the month because that's when the new Scrap Girls Club is released! It's like waking up to a birthday present in my email once a month (without the aging, of course!). I often have a little contest with myself in the days leading up to the first day of the month to see if I can guess who the designer will be. I try to stay up late the night before just to get a peek of it in the Boutique before I go to bed. I have been subscribed to the Scrap Girls Club for years, and I get just as excited now as I did when I first signed up!

I think one of the products of the club that makes it such a great deal is the JIFFY Easy Page Album that is included for Members Only. Each month, this album consists of five custom-designed layouts by our very own designers, using the products from that month's club. The great thing about these layouts is that they come as PSD files and PNG files, so they will work for you, no matter what program you use. I scrap in Photoshop Elements 10, so I love having the PSD file included. Having the PSD file means that I can personalize the layout to suit my photos. I can add or subtract photos, embellishments, and journaling by moving the layered elements around my page.

This month's kit from Shalae Tippetts is gorgeous! It is full of amazing textures like burlap, denim, and velvet. I immediately fell in love with the clustering on this page by Angie Briggs. It is so well done, and I knew it would take me quite a while to duplicate anything like it.

Layout Sample from the Scrap Girls Club exclusive JIFFY Easy Page Album.

I needed a spot for two photos, however, and this layout only has one. In order to make the layout fit my own personal needs, all I had to do was duplicate the frame and photo mask and move the cluster over to make more room. Then I added my own word art and a few embellishments, and voila, a beautiful layout that uses Angie's awesome cluster, but fits my own needs, too. Plus, it doesn't take nearly as long for me to put together a layout when the designers have done most of the work for me!

Have you had a chance to use this month's club selection yet? Upload your layouts in the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Club Members Gallery so we can all "oooh and aaah" over them today.

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.
