Today's Special of the Day!

La Di Da Collection Biggie
La Di Da Collection Biggie

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

"Well "La Di Da," Miss Lilly!"

The inspiration for this collection came from a photo of my niece Lilly last summer. Two times a year my sister has the twins photos taken by Two Chics Photography. I am always inspired by the outfits she chooses for the kids and the feel of the photos from Shauna, their photographer. Plus, my sister is really good at picking super cute stuff. That little ruffled romper was so stinkin' adorable that I "almost" made a totally ruffled paper for the collection, but you know... it was good idea in theory (smile). You can see the photo in the layout for the collection in the Boutique.

PS. The next photo shoot is in July, I'm excited and can't wait to see what kind of inspiration comes from it.

1. Do you blog? If so, where can we find you?

Yes, I just recently started a blog called "Scrapbooks from the Heart." You can find it here.

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

I used to be the night owl, but over the past few years I've become a early morning person. I find my head is clearer after some good sleep.

A Designer's Life: Angie Briggs - Motivation

When I started this weight loss journey a year ago, I never knew where it would lead me. I honestly thought it would be the same thing that happened many times in the past: It would only last a day or two.

How to Use "ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Drop Shadows 11701 Super Biggie"

When I have a spare moment to scrapbook, the last thing I want to do is fiddle with drop shadows. Thank goodness our designers have taken the guesswork out for us! Today, let's focus on ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Drop Shadows 11701 Super Biggie and see all it has to offer.

The 150 Steps to Producing a Great Newsletter – Becca Hauck

During the week I was with Rozanne, at some point she handed me a corporate-looking flowchart with about 50 boxes on it. All over the flowchart there were arrows pointing down, across, splitting, and coming back together to show how the boxes related to each other. I was pretty sure she had just handed me the instructions on how to build the next space shuttle! It turns out it was the flowchart showing how the daily Scrap Girls Newsletter gets produced.

Altering Embellishments

Let me just say, I love digital scrapbooking! One reason I'm in love is the endless amount of supplies which are only limited by my own creativity. Also, with amazing editing programs, altering embellishments and papers are a snap, which is something I can't say for traditional scrapbooking, where altering an embellishment would mean cutting, inking, painting, coloring, or gluing something onto it. Rather irreversible and certainly not reusable!

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, July 18th - 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 July 18th, we will be doing a ScrapSimple challenge! Create a layout using at least one ScrapSimple product. If you haven't used them before, we'll have some great ideas for you in the chat.

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

Heritage Crop
Thursday, July 19th - 8PM EDT

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 April (April Showers) and Carla (CRS) at 8pm EDT for the Heritage Crop and Chat! We'll help you get motivated to scrap those heritage photos and record your family stories for future generations to enjoy.

Games

July's Forum Game: Spotlight on the Boutique

Each day of July (with the exception of Sundays), a member of the Welcoming Committee will post an image spotlighting a small circle of the layout you are to search for in the Scrap Girls Boutique. If the layout is not identified by the following morning, a second spotlight circle will be added to the layout; this will be repeated until the product is identified.

All you have to do to participate is search the boutique for the layout and post a link to the product page in the official game thread. Only one guess per member per day is allowed. You can find more specific details in the forum game thread.

Three $10 gift certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique will be awarded. The winners will be randomly chosen from all the members that correctly identify a product throughout the month.

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

Contests

July Monthly Layout Contest: Hot! Hot! Hot! In the northern hemisphere, July is generally a month of very warm temperatures. For July's layout contest, we want you to scrap about what you do to stay cool – whether it'is in July or December. Post your layouts in the July Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight EDT on July 31st 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.
