A Designer's Life: Ang Campbell - Year of the Race

About a year ago, I wrote an article for the Scrap Girls newsletter sharing my personal goal to slim down and get in shape. I'm happy to report a year later that I have taken some big strides in shedding some unhealthy weight and improving my overall fitness. While I still have quite a journey ahead of me before I reach my long-term goals on the scale, I'm pleased with the progress I've made so far and I'm excited to continue dropping the "plus" from my size by making healthier choices than I used to make.

Life Muse by Ro: How to Make a Tuna Fish Sandwich in 50 Easy Steps

Locate bread that isn't old, moldy, or falling apart.

Making Brushes Handier and Even More Useful

When you install brushes, Photoshop creates a preview thumbnail in the Brush Palette to help you select a brush. You can select "Stroke Thumbnail" for brushes used as strokes; I use regular "Large Thumbnail" for most shape and texture brushes. Unfortunately, Photoshop shows all brush preview thumbnails squeezed to fit in a square shape. This is fine for brushes whose vertical and horizontal dimensions are nearly equal. It is a significant distortion for brushes that are long or tall.

The 3 B's of Bokeh

Today we will be learning about how to use the Dynamic Brush Set: Bokeh 8501 effectively in your digital scrapbooking layouts. There are three steps I like to call the "3 B's" - Brush, Blur, and Blend.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

New Member Chat
Tuesday, June 12th - 8:00PM EDT

Join Theresa (tiza126) for the New Member Chat on June 12th at 8pm ET in the Live Chat room lobby. This is a great place to ask questions about getting around the Scrap Girls site or about digital scrapbooking in general - and a great place to make some new friends. All are welcome, new and long time members included. You do need to have Java installed on your computer to access the Live Chat.

div

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, June 13th - 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 13th, 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!

div

Speed Scrap Crop
Thursday, June 14th - 8:00PM EDT

It's time for some Speed! Join Carla (CRS) at 8pm EDT for the Speed Scrap Crop! She will give you six tasks, spread out over an hour. You'll then have one hour to get a layout finished and posted in the Gallery!

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. 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!
