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 Syndee Nuckles. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"I have often been inspired by nature, just taking a short walk in a heavily wooded area bass been known to spark many ideas! Noteworthy holds a special place in my heart because it marries my love of nature and all things vintage. This collection also features some dried flowers from my darling daughter Kailey's journal."

1. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Butter Pecan

Pink, Adele, Seal

A Designer's Life: Durin Eberhart - 30 Questions

It's always fun to read those "get to know you" survey questions on Facebook, and I'm always surprised how much you can learn about a person in this way. Here is a questionnaire I created for fun and to give a quick glimpse into my life.

Question from Ro: What Do You Do to Cheer Yourself Up When You Need It?

My brain knows that I have lots of blessings. My intellect knows that I should always feel thankful and happy. But the fact is, I sometimes struggle with myself. Sometimes I feel super stressed, overly tired, miserably sick, and up-to-my-neck-in-it overwhelmed. And sometimes - when I facing some particularly difficult challenges - I find myself having pity parties.

You Need to See This: Are Your Memories Degrading?

One of the projects I have undertaken since starting my Life Scrapbook in December was to save all of my VHS home movies and audio tapes to my computer. I knew that their quality was degrading over time and that if I didn't do something with them soon, I could lose them forever. That would have been a shame because some of my treasures included two VHS tapes of home movies from when my kids were little (all we have), interviews I did in high school with each of my living grandparents, tapes of some musicals I was in, and my senior vocal recital.

Blending Modes and Photo Masks

For this tutorial, I am going to show you what's underneath my layout. Really! Let's do something wild and different and "undress" my layout. I want to show you the very beginnings of the layout and show you a technique to make your layout shine.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

Creative Cards Chat
Tuesday, April 3rd - 6:00PM MDT

Do you use your digital supplies to make cards? Do you want to? Instead of going to the store every time you need a card, you can save money and have fun making cards with your digi-stash! Make a note of any cards you might need for the upcoming March and join April (April Showers) and Theresa (tiza126) for the once-a-March Card Chat on the first Tuesday of each March at 6pm MT. Can't wait to see you there!

div

East Coast High Noon Crop
Wednesday, April 4th - 10:00AM MDT

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 10am MT for the East Coast High Noon Crop. All coasts and time zones are welcome! These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes, simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week.

On April 4th, we'll do a Photo Manipulation Challenge! Create a layout using a photo you have manipulated in some way - change it to black and white or sepia, remove a distraction, cut out the subject. Anything goes!

Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing you! Hope to see you in the chat room!

Games

April's Forum Game: BINGO!

Join us for an exciting game of Springtime BINGO on the Message Board Forum in April! Pick 25 words from the list provided in the forum game thread and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Message Board username" by Tuesday, April 3rd at Midnight MDT in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Wednesday, April 4th. If you miss the first round deadline, you can still play! Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the March, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.

Each day, a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.

Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the March. Have fun!

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

Contests

April Marchly Layout Contest: Life is full of surprises! Here in the United States, we have April Fools' Day on April 1st. Have you ever been surprised by someone playing an April Fools' joke on you? Or, you can scrap about another surprise that has happened in your life. You don't have to have photos. It could be a journaling page. Post your layouts in the April Marchly Layout Gallery before Midnight MDT on April 30th. Be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. Two layouts will be selected to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

Club Concepts Layout Contest: Post your new layout using the current club selection (either the Scrap Girls Club or the ScrapSimple Club) in our Scrap Girls Club Members Gallery or the ScrapSimple Club Members' Gallery. Be sure to list all of the Scrap Girls products you used. If your layout is chosen, it will be showcased as a Club Concepts layout winner, and you will win a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
