A Designer's Life: Laura Louie - It Happened for You

Not too long ago, I was listening to a sermon by Joel Osteen that had a very profound effect on the way I perceive the things that happen to me in my day-to-day life. The topic of his sermon was "Things Don't Happen to You - They Happen for You." The message was basically that God has a purpose for everything that occurs in our lives. Things happen that we think are bad, and we wonder why they are happening "to us," when in reality, God has a plan and He's using those exact things "for us." The message tied in clearly to my own path to digital scrapbook designing.

Designer Do-Over by Elisha Barnett

About a year ago, a member inquired about a technique I used on a layout I'd posted in the Gallery in early 2009 – a scraplift that mimicked the look of rolled paper. I'd seen the layout on a traditional paper scrapbooking site and wanted to try my hand at creating it digitally. I described the technique I used as best I could, but asked if there was any chance of a designer creating some templates. At that time, I was on the Scrap Girls team as a layout artist, not a designer.

Life Muse by Ro: The Simple Joy of Play

Clutching the teaspoon by the handle, she stirred the dark, sweet stuff in the cup and smelled the chocolate steam rise. It was a dark evening, but only hours ago she had raced down the side of a small hill in an inner tube. She remembered the hill on the east side of Turner's field, and while it seemed large to her from her child's perspective, it was actually dwarfed by the enormity of the mountain range behind it.

Seaweed Wrap Jubilee

She convinced me that it would be a good idea to have a spa treatment. Perhaps it would relax me and take my mind off of my troubles. Since I have little experience with such matters, I handed the "menu" of treatments available to her, and she pointed to an item on the card.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

Creative Cards Chat
Tuesday, June 5th - 8:00PM EDT

Would you like to use your digital scrapbooking supplies to make greeting cards? Instead of going to the store every time you need a card, you can save money and have fun making cards with your digital stash! Join Theresa (tiza126) in the chat room Tuesday, June 5th, at 8pm ET for our monthly Creative Cards Chat. This month, we'll use ScrapSimple Card Templates: Dad to make quick and easy cards for Father's Day or any masculine birthday. Can't wait to see you there!

div

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, June 6th - 12 Noon EDT

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon EDT for the 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 June 6th, we'll do a multiple photo challenge! Create a layout on any theme, any topic, and any colors - using SEVEN or more photos!

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

June's Forum Game: Re-JUNE-venate!

We helped you jumpstart your January and now it's time to re-JUNE-venate your focus on scrapbooking! Join us on the Scrap Girls Forum for "Re-JUNE-venate!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from June 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require Forum participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59pm EDT on June 30th will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 Gift Certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page- into a drawing for one of three $3 Gift Certificates.

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

Contests

June Monthly Layout Contest: June is full of weddings and graduations – a time of pomp and circumstance. For June's contest, we want to see your wedding, graduation or other special occasion layouts. Post your layouts in the June Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight EDT on June 30th and you could one of the two people who will win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Please be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties.

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.
