A Designer's Life: Cherise Oleson - Doors and Windows

They say that when one door closes, another opens. But I recently heard someone amend that to say that when one door closes, sometimes we stare longingly at that closed door and we don't even notice the window that has opened right next to it.

Welcome to the New Boutique: Tours Begin Here!

Step right up! The tour of the new Scrap Girls Boutique begins right here, right now!

Using Photo Styles on Embellishments

The Scrap Girls Boutique has a huge number of styles that be used in a variety of ways on your layouts. One style might be intended to change the texture of a paper, or another might be used to add some metallic characteristics to a frame. A number of styles are what I call "photographic" styles: a style that changes the characteristic of your photo. Some of these styles add age to your photo, some add softness, and others add alternate light patterns, clarity, bokeh, or even texture.

Using Action Sets

A few years ago, one of my friends signed up for an expensive online photography class that used Adobe Photoshop. She had not used the program before and had no idea how to follow the course instructions, so she called me and asked for help.

Web Wizardry - Wendee Pease

I wanted to make sure that our new Boutique was launched before introducing you to Wendee, the Scrap Girls Webmaster, so that you would be able to see her skills first-hand. She is the one who designed and coded the sleek new look of our Boutique. "Functionality" was the word Wendee kept coming back to during our many discussions about the new look, and now we are all benefiting from her foresight.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, September 19th - 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 19th, we'll do a No Photo Challenge! Create a layout without any photos. Everything else is fine! Are there some things you'd like to document but you don't have photos? Try using scanned memorabilia or extensive journaling to make a memorable layout without photos.

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!

Heritage Crop
Thursday, September 20th - 9:00PM 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) at 9pm ET for the Heritage Crop and Chat! This month we'll cover ways to use products like ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Absolutely Blended to create unique backgrounds for your heritage pages. Come to the chat and get motivated to scrap those heritage photos and record your family stories for future generations to enjoy.

ScrapSimple Club Chat

Join Shannon(tinkerbell11) in the chat room to discuss this month's ScrapSimple Club. Bring some fresh ideas to share about how to use the club. Make sure to post a layout so you are eligilble to win a prize.

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.
