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 Elisha Barnett. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"When I first became a Product Designer at Scrap girls, I knew that I wanted to create a collection designed around reading. Reading is one of my favorite pastimes! I incorporated different forms of books - traditional print books as well as electronic readers and audio books. The colors are inspired by a photo I found of an Ivy League college reading room - traditional, then I added just a touch of whimsy."

1. What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Fresh tomatoes and basil.

2. What's the last book you read?

The Litigators by John Grisham. On my Nook Color.

A Designer's Life: My Super-Secret Popsicle Recipe - Armi Custodio

My kids love popsicles! And since we live in the tropics, we have them almost every day! But because I am concerned about the health of my chiIdren, I don't use Kool-Aid or any artificial flavors. So I'll let you in on my super-secret popsicle recipe. The main ingredients are.... wait for it.....

Using August's Scrap Girls Club

My favorite day of the month is the first. Why? Because it's Scrap Girls Club day! I always love the surprise of discovering who created the club, what the topic was, and what color scheme will greet me. This month features the talented Jan Ransley and her topic of Home Sweet Home.

Preparing the Clubs = A Labor of Love – Andrea Trump

A few weeks back, I got an email asking my opinion about something related to one of the Clubs that was scheduled for March 2013. Mind you, this was in July 2012. I couldn't believe that we were working that far in advance! But the more I've learned about what goes into creating the amazing Club selections we offer you each month, the more I'm realizing it's necessary to be thinking nine months ahead. In fact, one of the designers I talked to compared the amount of work it takes to create a Scrap Girls Club selection to going through labor.

Introducing digiDoer by Jacqui Smith

digiDoer came about as Scrap Girls Designer Jacqui Smith's solution to the growing boxes of childhood memorabilia that was filling her garage, especially when her son began school. She had photographed a few paintings from his kindergarten year to make wrapping paper, and that's when she began to think about what could be done with the ever-growing collection of treasured memories gathering around her home. So many of her friends had the same situation of boxes and bags (that seemed to breed and make more!) around the house, and everyone wanted to DO something with these memories, but no one really knew what or where to begin.

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 22nd, we'll do a Nature Challenge! Create a layout that shows nature in some way. It could be flowers, wildlife, camping - anything that highlights nature.

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!

August's Forum Game: BINGO

Join us for an exciting game of August BINGO on the Scrap Girls Forum!! Pick 25 words from the list provided and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Forum username" by Wednesday August 1st (Midnight EDT) in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Thursday, August 2nd. If you miss the first round deadline, you can still play! Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.

Each day (Monday through Saturday), a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.

Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!
