Today's Special of the Day!

Story Telling Collection Mini
Story Telling Collection Mini

Save 30% off this Collection Mini 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 Shalae Tippetts. In a brief interview with Shalae, she shared these comments with us...

"One of the things I've loved doing lately is starting to put together my family's life scrapbook. I've loved telling our everyday stories to those of great significance. I tried putting together the Story Telling Collection Mini to help record some of those incidents in a way that can be both used for either masculine or feminine layouts. Is there a story you'd like to tell?"

1. Are you an early morning designer or do you burn the midnight candle?

I am an early morning person. I get up at 4:45 in the morning, and try to get as much design time is as possible before my kids get up and I need to get them off to school. For some reason, I cannot keep my eyes open much past 9pm (probably because of getting up early), so I rarely tend to burn the midnight oil, unless I'm in the middle of a project I am really excited about and just cannot stop.

2. Soda, coffee or other?

Water. I can't get enough of the stuff. I've never been much of a pop drinker and just don't like it much. So it's either water or juice for me.

Life Muses by To and Other Writings Image

A Designer's Life: Brandy Murry - Into Focus

Over Christmas, Jeroen and I were at a friend's house for a holiday dinner. He had some reading glasses lying around, and I grabbed them and put them on for fun. To my amazement, everything suddenly became more focused and clear. I didn't even realize I may need glasses. I asked him what strength they were, and he told me they were 2.5... 2.5?!

Life Muse by Ro: Get Your Mind-Reading Device Today!

Attention, shoppers! Today I interrupt our usual Muse Channel to inform you about the greatest discovery that has ever been discovered. It is such a big discovery that the discoverer will likely be listed on page one of The Big Book of Big Discoverers Who Discovered Big Discoveries.

Life Muse by Ro

Ro shares one of her cartoons! Check it out!

Scrap Girls Etc.: Create a Card Based on an Existing Layout

Do you ever wish you could stretch your layout further? After spending time and energy on your digital scrapbooking layout and creating something you are especially proud of, you deserve to show it off! It's great to share these types of layouts in online galleries and email them to friends, but what if you could do even more?

Life Muse by Ro: The Pig on the Refrigerator

"OINK! OINK!" the door of the refrigerator reprimanded. "Do not open the door, fatso."

Customer Muse by: Lynn Merves - The Grass is Truly Greener, But on Our Side of the Fence

We are currently in a dilemma over moving from the "burbs" of Philadelphia to southern California. My husband's company is located in Carlsbad, California, and he travels there for a week approximately once a month. For the past several years, we have known the time would come when we would need to make a decision one way or the other about moving.

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 Layer Your Own Brushes?

Do you like your digital scrapbooking layouts to have that one-of-a-kind flair? Do you love to give the designs your own personal look?

Tips From The Pros Image

Creating and Printing Folded Greeting Cards

Using your digital scrapbooking supplies to create greeting cards is a smart way to utilize your digital stash. You can create greeting cards with just the right message inside, and even after you factor in the price of paper and ink, you can save money! While I often print the outside of a card and leave the inside blank to write my own message, I really like the polished look of a card that is printed on the inside, too.

Using the Brush Set: Glow & ScrapSimple Styles: Glow Stick

Want to make your digital scrapbooking pages glow? This tutorial will show you just how easy it can be!

Tips for Readable Journaling

Did you make any scrapbooking resolutions for the New Year? One of my goals for 2012 is to create more layouts with journaling. I tend to focus on the creative aspect of digital scrapbooking, but even those of us who focus on memory-keeping can find integrating journaling into the design process difficult. I used to feel that if I wanted to have legible journaling on my pages, I had to sacrifice "pretty" layout design. Over time, I've discovered a few tips that can help ensure your journaling harmonizes with your overall layout design without sacrificing readability.

In this crazy-technology-based world we live in, there are not many people we know who have not seen, touched, played with, or own a piece of iTech technology. Now, you can use ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: iTech to create your very own embellishments that look like your cell phone, MP3 player, tablet, and earbuds.
