Christmas Wonderland Collection
Christmas Wonderland Collection

Save 30% off this Collection today only!

Each week on Tuesdays, we will be spotlighting one designer and one of their favorite products. This product will be on sale for one day only at 30% off!

This week's designer spotlight is on Julie White. In a brief interview with Julie, she shared these comments with us...

"While it's only the middle of November, the holidays are just around the corner. This time of year always seems to fly by so fast. I created the Christmas Wonderland Collection to slow down and savor the beauty of the holiday season. This collection is about the true beauty of faith, hope and love that is inherent in the Christmas season, and I hope it helps you capture your own holiday joy."

2. What are your favorite pizza toppings?

I love any kind of veggies on my pizza, especially mushroom.

Life Muses by To and Other Writings Image

A Designer's Life: Sheri Johnson - Prioritizing Life

I sometimes find myself getting completely overwhelmed with everything life throws at me. Once that happens, the balance is off, and my health starts to fail because I haven't taken the time to cook proper meals or to exercise. Then I can't take care of the people I love because I don't feel good, much less happy. In trying to please everyone, I fall short in pleasing anyone because I'm not able to devote the time and attention that any given job or project needs.

Life Muse by Ro

Ro shares one of her cartoons! Check it out!

Life Muse by Ro: Did You Know You Could Do This?

If you've been around for awhile, you know that I have a little homemaking blog named How Mom Did It. The purpose of this blog is to share what my mother and grandmother taught me about homemaking, cooking, sewing, gardening, being thrifty and such. I took a little hiatus from this blog during 2011, but have recently started working on it again because it's fun to have a change of topic sometimes.

Scrap Girls Etc.: Sharing and Storing Layouts and Photos with Picasa

I don't know about you but I love Google! Every time I turn around, they have something new for me to play with, and it's usually always free! Gotta love that! Google has a great photo organization program called Picasa - you may have heard of it and maybe even use it. It's a great place to upload photos and layouts to share and have as back-up copies in case of computer failure. You can download and find out more information about it here:

Life Muse by Ro: Video Tutorial - Make a Printable Place Card, Part 1

Here's a surprise for you... Ro has created a two-part digital scrapbooking video tutorial series about how to use digital scrapbooking supplies to make a beautiful, printable place card - perfect for Thanksgiving dinner.

Customer Muse by: Angela Payne - Color

Color - our world is so full of color everywhere we look. There are so many shades of one color that you may get lost in your search for one particular color or another. It's amazing to me to look out at a beautiful fall day and see all the colors of the leaves and how they change even throughout the season of fall. As I sat at my table looking at a very bright green Tupperware® cup with a matching lid and straw, I was overcome with my appreciation of color.

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

What are Easy Page Card Albums?

Christmas cards are such a fun way to share your family's year with friends and family. ScrapSimple Card Templates are an amazingly easy way to create your very own unique photo cards in a snap! I'm going to use the Easy Page Album: 4x6 Holiday Time.

Tips From The Pros Image

Getting the Most Out of Your Money

Let's face it, the economy is still in the process of recovering and all of us have different scrapping budgets. The great news is that even if you are working with a smaller budget and/or just starting out with this fun hobby, digital scrapbooking allows for the perfect outlet to express your creativity and document your memories, while getting the most out of your money.

Coloring Grayscale Journaling Papers

Journaling in your digital scrapbook layouts is easy because you can type in exactly what you want and then edit it later. Having a large selection of journaling papers at your fingertips can give you the perfect opportunity to preserve a few words, or they can act as a design element all by themselves. This tutorial will show you a quick trick to recolor ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Lifted Journal Paper Super Biggie and a new idea for how to use them on a layout.

One Technique I Used on this Layout

We digital scrapbookers don't need ruled paper to achieve straight journaling lines, but it's fun to play with school supplies! Any time I use ruled paper, it brings back memories of a brand new notebook just waiting to be filled with notes, homework, or diary entries.

Framed Perpetual Calendar Project

If you're looking for a fun gift for friends or family for the upcoming holidays, you can't go wrong with using your digital scrapbooking products to create a fun, personalized, printable calendar project! There are many options for printing and binding your calendars. I'd like to show you the fun way I used ScrapSimple Calendar Templates: 8.5x11 Perpetual to create gifts for some special friends and families for the coming year.
