ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Ornamentali

Save 30% off this ScrapSimple Paper Template set today only!

Each week, 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 Cindy Rohrbough. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"I am just crazy about curls and swirls and the feminine touch they can bring to any page. I also love the intricate, delicate beauty of ornamental designs as well as the fun artsy feel of the hand drawn look. So I decided to make this easy to use ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Ornamentali set that combines all of these elements and allows you to customize them to work with all of your photos and layouts."

1. What is currently playing on your iPod/radio?

Stuck in the 70's - Cat Stevens, Carly Simon, Van Morrison. I love all Motown, Disco and Rock.

2. When designing a collection what do you start with first? Papers, embellishments, word art?

Papers.

Ever wish that you could be a Product Designer for Scrap Girls?

Well, now's your chance to apply!

If you are interested, please forward the following items to [email protected].

The subject line must read: Product Designer Application.

  1. 3 color palettes that you might use as a basis for designing collections.

  2. A sample collection mini, consisting of 6 background papers, 1 "sheet" of embellishments, and 1 "sheet" of word art.

    A "sheet" consists of a grouping of items that will fit on an 8.5x11 document. Take care to make sure that the collection mini's color set is well balanced and that it has an idea that ties it together. It should contain enough embellishments and word art to be useful to someone who wishes to make several layouts from it. Also, take care that the embellishments are not a grouping of a small number of items that have just been re-colored. This is your opportunity to show your versatility and skill level.

  3. At least one sample layout using the collection mini.

  4. A sample brush set with 3 brushes.

  5. A sample paper template set (like our ScrapSimple Paper Templates) with 2 papers.

  6. A sample embellishment template set (like our ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates) with 3 embellishments.

    Examples of all of these products can be found in our Boutique.

Also, please answer the following questions in the body of your application email:

  1. Approximately how much would you like to earn each month?
  2. Approximately how many hours do you have to dedicate to design work each week?
  3. What are your goals as it pertains to design work?
  4. Why are you interested in working with Scrap Girls?
  5. What software do you use?
  6. Include any other information that you think would be helpful as we make our decision.

Other instructions: Save your files as 600px wide, 72 dpi. Place them in one zipped folder and forward with your application email.

DEADLINE: Friday, July 13, 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time)

Notifications of results will be sent to all applicants by Friday, July 20.

What is Scrap Girls looking for in a new designer?

  1. Talent
  2. Desire to work with Scrap Girls and be a committed, active member of our team
  3. Work ethic
  4. Software and designing skills

If a talented person comes along whose skills are not quite what they might be, but we feel they would be a super-committed, dynamic member of our team if given a little help, we may choose to put them through an apprentice program.

We look forward to seeing your application!

A Designer's Life: Paula Wright - Switch Points

The last few years have brought many challenges for our family and many of our friends. Things that we had been able to take for granted for years have changed and are no longer an option. Many of the families that I know have been discouraged and confused about what the future will hold for them.

The Battle Line has Been Drawn

I am convinced that there are two kinds of people: One that loves tomatoes and one that despises them.

How To Alter Digital Photo Frames

Have you ever experienced finding just the right frame embellishment only to discover that your photograph is the wrong size? Most likely you make the adjustment to the picture, and in the process, crop away a section that you would otherwise choose to keep. Why not alter the frame to fit the photo? This month's Scrap Girls Club by Brandy Murry contains a great selection of frames to demonstrate how to make slight alterations to fit your needs.

Using ScrapSimple Paper Templates to Create Unique Background Paper

Our ScrapSimple line offer many products that allow the digital scrapbooking artist to create unique digital elements. ScrapSimple Paper Templates are designed to help scrapbookers and digital artists create digital scrapbooking paper in the color and style they want. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use ScrapSimple Paper Templates to create unique digital paper customized to your taste and needs.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, June 27th - 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 27th, we'll do a Journaling Challenge. Create a layout with more than five sentences of meaningful journaling.

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

Creative Cards Chat
Tuesday, July 3rd - 8:00PM EDT

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 month and Join April (April Showers) for the once-a-month Card Chat on the first Tuesday of each month at 8pm ET. Can't wait to see you there!

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!
