Save 30% off these Collection Biggie kits 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 Pebbles Jones. In a brief interview with Pebbles, she shared these comments with us...

"I wanted my Project 52 this year to focus more on jounaling my life. I needed a universal collection that was a great base to build on that and would save me time. My Life's Journal Collection Biggie allows me to bring in a variety of colors and themed items, while still maintaining a coordinated feel to the book. The black, white, and kraft colors in this collection do just that."

1. What is the first thing you do when you get up in the morning?

After I get myself and the kids ready for the day and them off to school, it is coffee time! Followed by emails and designing.

2. What programs do you use?

Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator.

A Designer's Life: Cindy Rohrbough - Some of My Best Memories

Some of my favorite childhood memories are camping with my family in California. As far back as I can remember, every spring and summer, we would pack up our camper and off we would go. When I was about six years old, we went to Sequoia National Forest for Easter. My mom made us feather headdresses out of paper, and we went on an adventure to track deer. We also had the most wonderful Easter egg hunt in a magical forest with the most humongous, glorious trees. For lunch one day, my parents surprised us with a picnic on the side of a hill that was covered with orange poppies. As if that wasn't enough adventure for one trip, one morning we woke up and saw bear tracks all over our campsite, and all of our food had been rummaged through. Scary!

Life Scrapbooks - Keeping a Workout Journal

As Scrap Girls' Newsletter Woman, I've read all the recent articles about the Life Scrapbook project. It gave me an idea to incorporate something that's very important to me into a Life Scrapbook project of my own.

What Are Blending Modes?

What are Blending Modes? What do they do?

These are questions I run into frequently. Today I'm going to try and answer those questions for you. There is a lot of information out there about Blending Modes, and a lot of it I find to be confusing and way too much information for what I want to know. I'm going to keep this on the simple and hopefully easy-to-understand side! I think you will find that you will use the same Blending Modes over and over, while you won't bother with some at all.

Games

March's Message Board Game: Simple Steps to Super Scrapping

This month's Scrap Girls Forum game, Simple Steps to Super Scrapping, is designed to help you get more scrapbook pages done with a series of simple steps that add up to a finished page at the end of each week.

Throughout March, Monday through Saturday, a team member will post a daily layout step in the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping game thread; the first week has 9 steps, and the remaining three weeks have 6 steps each. These steps will be posted in large purple font so they will be easy to spot.

Members who complete the steps required in the game thread and post all 4 layouts in the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $15.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

Each completed layout posted in the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

You have until 11:59pm MDT on March 31, 2012 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Simple Steps to Super Scrapping Gallery.

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