Life Muses by To and Other Writings Image

A Designer's Life: Durin Eberhart - Painting with Sam (and Bob Ross)

All my life I've considered myself to be somewhat of an artist, and I've experimented with many artistic mediums, but I've never really considered myself a "painter." I've worked with watercolors a bit and have used acrylics to create textures and abstracts, but I shied away from oils for some reason. I've also always been unsatisfied with the landscapes and other realistic paintings that I've attempted. I felt I just wasn't cut out for painting.

Life Muse by Ro - The Best Time Management Trick I've Ever Learned

Attention, work-a-holics: I learned a time management trick this week that is helping me reclaim the life I thought was gone forever. It's so obvious, and yet I had missed it because I was still locked into the old "have to be at work and appear busy for eight hours (or more) a day" mentality.

Life Muse by Ro

Ro shares one of her cartoons! Check it out!

Scrap Girls Etc.: Embellishment Clusters

Who's with me in thinking I got the luck of the draw here? I get to write about almost everybody's favorite digital scrapbooking supply – embellishments! Embellishments are to a layout what accessories are to a woman. That's to say, they're not strictly necessary, but make the ensemble a whole lot more eye-pleasing, not to mention fun!

Life Muse by Ro

You don't have to take dangerous leaps off cliffs. All that is required is that you step off curbs from time to time.

Customer Muse by: Renee Cox - No Longer Cool

Officially, I am no longer cool. Wait a minute, I'm not sure that I've ever been cool, but I know that I've definitely passed the prime target to ever become cool.

div

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to [email protected]. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!

Back to Basics

Crop and Chat Schedule

At Scrap Girls, we have lots of fun crops and chats that are held weekly in our Chat Room. Sometimes, these chats and crops are special one-time events, while others are held on a weekly or monthly basis.

Tips From The Pros Image

Making a Bottle Caddy

Are you ever struck by a great idea when you least expect it? I sure was a couple months ago when walking down the aisles of my local grocery store. I noticed a little carton of frappuccino bottles and immediately thought of how cute it could be if I altered it with my digital scrapbooking supplies.

Cool Colors

The color wheel can be split into two categories, warm and cool colors. Cool colors are blues, greens, and purples. These colors can be very calm and relaxing to the eye.

Finding the Five Best Qualities

Do you have a great photo without a story to accompany it? Or maybe you have a series of photos that you want to use in a scrapbook page, but don't feel you have enough information or space on your layout to write meaningful journaling. Making a short list of your subject's best qualities and using that list instead of traditional journaling can be a quick and thoughtful way to tell a story.

Titles with Pizazz

Sometimes, while I am looking through my photos, I find one of those pictures. You know, the kind that just yells its title at you. These are my favorite photos to make into digital scrapbooking layouts. When a title is just yelling at me from the photo, it often doesn't match any pre-made word art already in my stash. That's when I turn to my selection of fonts to create an amazing title with pizazz. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a title with pizazz.

Games

July Message Board Game: Summer Scavenger Hunt!

Dust off those thinking caps and hunting boots! We're having a Summer Scavenger Hunt, and you're invited! Join us for the July Message Board Game, where each Monday through Saturday during the month of July, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post a clue in the official game thread. The clue will describe a product from the Scrap Girls Boutique. To participate, search the Boutique for the product and post a link to the product page in the official game thread.

But wait, there's more! In a new twist to the scavenger hunt game, on certain days you will be sent to the Scrap Girls Gallery to look for layouts using specific products or collections, and then post a link to your layout comment in the official game thread.

Three winners will be drawn from all the members who correctly identify a product or find Gallery layouts throughout the month. Each winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Good luck in your search!

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

Contests

For July's Monthly Layout Contest, show us your layouts featuring someone displaying independence! It could be a toddler learning independence or a young person out on their own for the first time. You could even scrap about a time you displayed some independence! Be sure to include some journaling to support your photos. Post your layouts in the July Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MT on July 31st. Be sure to list your credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. If your layout is one of the two chosen winners, you will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
