Today's Special of the Day!

Value Pack: Ashley
Value Pack: Ashley

Save 30% off this Value Pack 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 Jo Corne. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"These products are very special to me as they are in honor of my late brother Ashley. He passed very suddenly nearly six and a half years ago and left a very big hole in our small family. I wanted to honor him, his sense of humor - his huge laugh that kept me in fits just listening to him, his love of my kids, his kindness towards me. I hope this Value Pack can bring the sense of peace and love to others that it brought to me when I scrapped my pages about my brother, Ashley."

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

I wish I could be an early morning designer as I am more awake in the morning. But alas, it is whenever I can grab some time and that is usually later in the day.

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

Beyonce, Rhianna, a few Australian singers and a beautiful Hebrew song that my daughter sang for school.

A Designer's Life: Syndee Nuckles - You've Come a Long Way, Baby!

I'm often asked how it was that I became a product designer at Scrap Girls, so I thought it might be fun to tell you how it all came about.

Three Ways to Color Paper Templates in Photoshop Elements

Our ScrapSimple line at Scrap Girls is one of the first products I was drawn to, and I think it's safe to say that it's the type of product I design most often! I love the limitless possibilities that ScrapSimple templates offer, and it's amazing how easy they are to use once you get the hang of it!

Help is Always an Email Away – Angie Briggs

One of the first Scrap Girls team members I had the pleasure of meeting was Angie Briggs. In fact, Angie is the first "Scrap Girl" nearly everyone meets because Angie is the friendly voice behind the Scrap Girls customer service line. She is also the one typing away the replies you get when you send an email to [email protected].

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. 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!
