A Designer's Life Image

A Designer's Life: Lore Shattuck - Can a Gothy Girl Scrap?

My friend, Bryn, and I worked at a gaming company that catered to goths, gamers, and geeks. When she discovered I was going to design for Scrap Girls, she said, "Lore? No way!"

div

12 Days of Christmas

Welcome to one of Scrap Girls' most cherished traditions - the 12 Days of Christmas newsletter celebration! We've been hosting this celebration since the beginning of Scrap Girls back in 2005. Back then, I was putting the newsletter together when I suddenly noticed that Christmas Eve was 12 days away.

Now, a 12-day event is something I love best about Christmas.

In some areas of the United States, people enjoy picking out a family in their neighborhood that they can secretly give little gifts to as a way of celebrating how grateful they are for the birth of Jesus Christ. Every evening after dark, some lucky person in the gift-giving family sneaks up to their target's front porch, deposits that day's gift, rings the doorbell, and takes off running with all their might. A successful 12-day campaign means that the receiving family never knows who has showered them with love.

Because I hadn't planned it out, the first Scrap Girls 12 Days of Christmas event was pretty simple - consisting of some extra freebies, a daily Christmas muse by me (this is when muses first appeared in the newsletter), and some neat layouts and samples. Angie Briggs quickly noticed that I needed a little help with this project - because, as I said, it was not pre-planned - and she started feeding me extra layouts for the newsletters. I'll always love her for that. She saved my bacon!

The second year (2006), without thinking through the ramifications of what it would mean for future celebrations, I decided to surprise our readers with a 12-part serial story. You know... like Charles Dickens used to write. (I'm a little nuts sometimes.) That first story - The Flight of Christmas - took me months to write and remains my favorite one to this day. (I have now written five serial stories for this annual event.)

The specially-designed set of 12 Days Embellishments first made their appearance in 2007. The games - including the Infamous Tree of Doom - made their debut in 2008.

So, as you can see, the 12 Days of Christmas event grew from me having a desire to share a little extra holiday spirit with you into an event that takes our team months to prepare for. We keep it going because it's just one small way we can let you know how grateful we are for you and your support of our company. When you refer your friends to us and share what we are doing, you help keep Scrap Girls going. Every time you shop with us, you help us maintain our Forum, our Gallery, our newsletters, our blog, and every other service we offer you. And, of course, you help us to be able to continue to provide you with the free daily downloads that you all enjoy so much!

We need you. We understand that completely. We want you to know that our team members and their families are sublimely grateful for you each and every time you choose Scrap Girls to be your source for the beautiful digital scrapbooking supplies you need to make your layouts and projects. Every time you make a purchase in our Boutique, you make a HUGE difference in many, many lives. You help keep this small business going!

This year's 12 Days of Christmas stories come from our readers who submitted them when we put out a call for amazing stories related to the holidays. Every day from now through Dec 24, you'll read a new story that will make you laugh heartily, think deeply, and maybe blink back a tear or two. We received lots of amazing stories and had a hard time picking just 12!

So here we go! This is the 2011 Scrap Girls 12 Days of Christmas event. I hope you have fun!

12 Days of Christmas Customer Stories

Day 1: The Day the Gingerbread Men Disappeared, by Jennifer Schildknecht

To put it quite honestly, I had an epiphany the Christmas that my older kids were 1, 2, and 3 years old. I owe it all to my cousin whose simple but wise observation changed my way of thinking - and then, my life.

Day 2: The Miracle of Christmas 1918, by Alison Haselgrove

When I was a child, Great-Uncle Arthur seemed a rather intimidating and distant figure with little in common with a young girl. He didn't often speak about himself or his past, but one story he told me touched my heart, and it has remained with me all these years later.

Day 3: 100 Jars of Love, by Laura Lewis

My mom loved to read and to serve others. She combined these two joys, and the result has touched the lives of over 100 families across the country. It started when she read the book Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright. She immediately decided to start her own Christmas Jar and faithfully deposited her change each day. Two jars were filled and, as per the Christmas Jar tradition, those jars were delivered anonymously to families in need. The next year she filled more jars and enlisted her family in starting their own jars.

Day 4: A Light in Ethiopia, by Laura Toews

It was Christmas 1960, and the boarding school my brother and I attended in Ethiopia was abuzz with joy! Words alone couldn't sufficiently express how excited we were. Only one more week and we would be going home to our families whom we hadn't seen since late August. Tim and I were among the lucky ones: Our father was in Addis Ababa for the mission council meetings. That meant we could visit with him all Saturday afternoon – and he had phoned to say he would take us Christmas shopping!

Day 5: A Long Wait for a Little Miracle, by Sonya Davis

Christmas is about the birth of our Savior, and it's oh-so-much fun to celebrate it with children! It just never occurred to me that the wait to celebrate Christmas with our babies would take so long.

Day 6: If All Else Fails, Decorate a Ladder, by Tasanee Campbell

One of our favorite family traditions goes back to our great-great-grandparents and the Christmas of 1910. We've been telling this story for five generations.

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!

Tips From The Pros Image

Create Holiday Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

Are you on a tight budget and in need of some easy-to-create printable holiday gifts or stocking stuffers? Look no further than the Boutique here at Scrap Girls!

Scrap Girls Club Craft: Dressing up a Pringles® Can

I love to give homemade treats during the holidays, so I am always on the lookout for fun and inexpensive ways to hand out my goodies. When surfing around on Pinterest recently, I came across a fun way to turn an empty Pringles® potato chip can into a gift-giving container. Best of all, you can do this with just a little bit of effort and only a few supplies.

Creating a Desk Calendar

ScrapSimple Calendar templates are useful and make a great (and easy) gift. You can create a cute calendar for a desk or mantel piece quickly and easily.

Focus on Journaling

Why do we scrapbook? I believe there are many reasons, and each of us has our own answer to that question. But I think one important aspect of scrapbooking that we all share is the desire to preserve our memories and to tell our life story through pictures and journaling.

Using ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Wrap It Up

Today I want to show you my favorite way to use the ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Wrap It Up since I know many of us will be creating digital scrapbook layouts featuring gift-giving holidays in the next few weeks. One of the great features of these digital scrapbooking paper templates is that they can be color-coordinated to fit any holiday or gift-giving event. My family celebrates Christmas in December so I'll use some of last year's Christmas photos to demonstrate how to use these fun digital scrapbooking paper templates.

Did you know we have a Weekly Round-Up newsletter?

This action-packed newsletter is sent out on Tuesday afternoons and summarizes what has happened in the past week. It's perfect for people who feel that they are too busy to read the daily editions! If you would like to receive our Round Up Newsletter, scroll to the bottom of this email and use the "Update Profile/Email Address" option to join the Round Up list and/or change your subscription options to our newsletters.

Of course, the Weekly Round Up Newsletter contains a fresh, new freebie, so even if you like to get the daily newsletters, you might want to join the Weekly Round-Up Newsletter, too. It's a great way to keep track of all of the fun things you are learning!
