A Designer's Life: Melissa Renfro - Pressing on to Find Creativity

I was trying to be a prepared mom, you know, having activities for my kids to do in the in-between times. I have five boys. We were travelling a lot and moving to a new city, so we would be three days here, four days there, and then do it all over again.

Becoming Debbie... "President"

Over the past week, I've looked at that new title behind my name many times and thought "Whoa!" It's all happened so fast. And at the same time, it's been a long and winding path that led me to Scrap Girls. Sometimes it felt like a journey where I didn't know quite where I was going. Yet somehow I ended up exactly where I was meant to be.

What's Happening on the Scrap Girls Blog?

The Scrap Girls Blog is full of all sorts of neat tutorials and information that you can't find anywhere else. You can sign up to follow the blog via a RSS reader or to get email notifications when new posts are released. Look at the top right-hand column of the blog for more information.

Creating 8.5x11 Layouts with 12x12 Paper

A while back, Scrap Girls introduced a new line of products for making digital scrapbook layouts in 8.5x11-inch format. This was really exciting to me because when I first started digital scrapbooking, I had software that almost exclusively worked in notebook-sized format. As a result, I have notebook after notebook of 8.5x11-inch layouts from my early digital scrapbooking days.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, June 20th - 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 20th, we'll do a Flower Challenge. You can use photos of flowers that are in bloom, use a floral paper, or embellish your page with lots of beautiful flowers. It is up to you!

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!

Join Conda (SodScrap) in the chat room lobby at 8pm ET for this month's ScrapSimple Club Chat. We will talk about this month's new club, including some fun ideas how to use it. If you create a layout from ScrapSimple Club products, you have the chance to be featured in our daily newsletter and win a great Scrap Girls prize!

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!
