Mod Bungalow Collection Biggie
Mod Bungalow Collection Biggie

Save 30% off this Collection Biggie 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 Brandy Hackman. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"The Mod Bungalow Collection Biggie is very reflective of my overall design style. It feels like home to me. Literally! I tend to lean towards reds and browns and creams when decorating my home. However, since I have four little boys, they like to have blues and greens in their rooms and play room. So, this color palette closely mirrors the colors and style in my home. It feels very comfy to me."

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

The midnight candle, always! That way, I can finally work without interruptions.

2. Soda, coffee or other?

Skim MILK.

A Designer's Life: Elisha Barnett - Mourning Dove, Morning Companion

There's a large holly tree in our yard right outside my office window. My husband wants to cut it down. I can understand why, from his point of view. It's overgrown and hard to prune. It's messy because it drops berries and leaves all year long. It's in the path between our back door and the barbecue grill, and the pointy leaves are hard on bare feet.

Life Muse by Ro: If I Pound on the Door, Will You Open It?

Some people bravely march through the door.

Installing Patterns in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements

I often receive pleas for help with an action that does not want to work. Nine times out of ten, it's because the Pattern set was not installed. Patterns are often included in ScrapSimple Action sets and need to be installed prior to running the action. Thankfully, it's an easy process in both Photoshop (PS) and Photoshop Elements (PSE)!

Where Are You in Your Layouts?

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

East Coast High Noon Crop
Wednesday, April 18th - 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 18th, we'll do a 3 Photo Challenge. Create a layout using three photos - no more, no less.

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!

div

Hybrid Craft Chat
Wednesday, April 18th - 6:00PM MDT

Join Carla (CRS) in the chat room at 6pm MT for this month's Hybrid Craft Chat. She will show you how to create a unique craft project with your digital supplies and goodies from your craft room!

div

Heritage Crop & Chat
Thursday, April 19th - 6:00PM MDT

Do you have boxes of heritage photos just waiting to be restored and scrapped? Are there family stories just waiting for you to write down and preserve? Then this is the crop for you! Join Carla (CRS) at 6pm MT for the Heritage Crop and Chat! She will help you get motivated to scrap those heritage photos and record your family stories for future generations to enjoy. This month, she will show how to use Lori Cook's Brush Set: Clippings to give any paper a heritage feel!

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 month, 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 month. Have fun!

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

Contests

April Monthly 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 Monthly 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!
