A Designer's Life: Andrea Trump - New Beginnings

I did a little something at the end of 2012 that wasn't in our budget... I joined a gym. Well, the joining of the gym wasn't it. It was hiring a personal trainer and signing a contract for six months' worth of sessions that wasn't in our budget. As I was doing it, I knew we really couldn't afford it.

Mix & Match Digital Layout Templates to Make Them New

Do you love digital layout templates as much as I do? I have lots of templates, and I use them all the time. If you use your templates as they are, then your layouts can start to look the same or at least very similar to each other.

Using One Large Photo

I create digital scrapbooking layouts with one large photo for two main reasons. When I only have one photo of a person or event, such as heritage photos, I don't have any other options. Other times I have a wonderful photo that I want set apart from the rest on its own page. For this tutorial, I chose a favorite photo from my daughter's wedding.

Getting into the Spirit of the Games

Every four years, right before the Olympics begin, I start to get mildly excited. Usually I am reminded that this is "the" year by some funny TV ad making a lot of hay about the "official pizza" of the Olympic Games. While we might see some occasional off-year coverage of soccer or swimming, most of us don't keep track of who qualified for any of the strange Olympic sports like canoeing. In the interval between games, it's easy to forget that athletes have trained their entire lives to compete, and host cities have spent millions to be sure that they are an excellent host.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, August 1st - 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 August 1st, we'll do a "Push Yourself" challenge! Create a layout that really pushes your personal style - either something you've never done before, or a layout that is very much your style - just INTENSELY your style!

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, August 7th - 9:00 PM 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 9pm ET. This month, we'll focus on how to use ScrapSimple Layout Templates to create unique greeting cards.

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!
