Scrap Girls Etc.

A Designer's Life: Brandy Murry - Growing Up at Scrap Girls

I know some of you know this, but a lot of people don't. Did you know the beautiful twins you see in all of my layouts are not mine? Well, they are "mine," but I am not their mother - I'm their Aunt B!

Not Just for Christmas

I recently looked through my massive collection of Scrap Girls supplies and noticed that I have a great deal of Christmas collections. I really don't take a lot of pictures during Christmastime because I'm usually elbow-deep in food preparations or knee-deep in wrapping paper. (I really need to make a better effort to capture our family Christmas traditions on "film" – but that's a different article.) I spent some time ogling over the beautiful collections and thought, "Why in the world do I think I have to use these incredible supplies only for Christmas pictures?" It instantly dawned on me that I don't have to do any such thing!

Customer Survey

I come from a long line of curious people. Everyone in my family likes to ask questions and learn new things. I've especially noticed this in myself when I'm in a social situation. I'll often find myself at a gathering talking with someone I've just met, and I'll be asking them all about their family, their hobbies, or where they grew up. I'm always more comfortable asking the questions and listening to people talk about themselves than I am talking about myself. I like to ask questions as a way to get to know someone, and all my life, this is how I've made friends.

Scraplifting

What is "scraplifting" and why am I writing an article about it? It sounds illegal!

A Designer's Life: Charlene Crowder - Me and My Hair

I don't know what it is with me and my hair. I wish I could tell you that I'm a keeping-current kind of gal. You know - someone who has their hair trimmed monthly and gets a new, fresh style every couple of years. Instead, I've had the same style (if we want to call it that) for most of my adult life.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

New Member Chat
Tuesday, September 11th - 8:00PM EDT

Join Theresa (tiza126) for the New Member Chat at 8pm ET in the Live Chat room lobby. This is a great place to ask questions about getting around the Scrap Girls site or about digital scrapbooking in general - and a great place to make some new friends. All are welcome, new and long time members included. You do need to have Java installed on your computer to access the Live Chat.

div

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, September 12th - 12 Noon EDT

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon ET 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 September 12th, we'll do a Quote Challenge! Create a layout using a meaningful, inspiring or funny quote. It can be in place of journaling, or use a beloved quote as a starting point for your 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!

Games

September's Forum Game: Simplify September

This month's Scrap Girls Forum game, Simplify September, is designed to help you get more scrapbooking done with a series of simple steps that add up to a finished project at the end of each week.

Throughout September, Monday through Saturday, a team member will post a daily layout step in the Simplify September game thread; the first week has seven steps, and the remaining three weeks have six steps each. These steps will be posted in large purple font so they will be easy to spot.

Members who complete the steps required in the game thread and post all four layouts in the Simplify September Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $15.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

Each completed layout posted in the Simplify September Gallery, up to four per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of four $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

You have until 11:59 p.m. ET on September 30, 2012, to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Simplify September Gallery.

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