A Designer's Life: Cindy Rohrbough - My Happy Hubby

When I first met my husband, Eric, I thought, "No one could be this happy all the time!" It seemed he never had a bad day, and he almost always had a big smile on his face. After months of witnessing this, I remember telling him that it's okay to get frustrated sometimes... just go ahead and let it out. I honestly thought he was repressing his emotions! But he just looked at me with a blank stare, not knowing what I was talking about.

8.5x11 Scrap Girls Products

Confession: I'm not much of an 8.5x11-inch scrapbooker. I prefer the classic 12x12-inch size. Why? Because that's the way I started digitally scrapbooking, and to put it simply, I'm not good at changing a method that has been working great for me!

And the Survey Says...

I want to personally thank everyone who took the time to participate in our customer survey over the past few weeks. We got an overwhelming response and feel like we really have some wonderful information to help us chart a great future for Scrap Girls.

Layer Masks - A Quick Way to Trim Papers

When I got my first look at the contents of this month's Scrap Girls Club, I was excited to write a tutorial using it. I love the colors, the variety of patterned papers, the beautiful flowers and the romantic word art. I chose to create a digital scrapbook page about my parents who were married for 50 years and adored each other.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, September 26th - 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 26th, we'll be doing a Brush Challenge. Try to use at least two brushes in your layout.

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

Speed Scrap Crop
Wednesday, September 26th - 8:00PM EDT

It's time for some Speed! Join Carla (CRS) at 8pm ET for the Speed Scrap Crop! We'll give you six tasks, spread out over an hour. You'll then have an hour to get it finished and posted in the Gallery!

div

Creative Cards Chat
Tuesday, October 2nd - 8:00PM 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) and Theresa (tiza126) for the once-a-month Card Chat on the first Tuesday of each month at 8pm ET. Can't wait to see you there!

div

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, October 3rd - 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 October 3rd, we'll do a white space challenge! Create a layout using white space. This "negative" or blank space guides the eye to the important areas of your page. Remember, it certainly doesn't have to be the color white!

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.

Contests

September Monthly Layout Contest: September is Classical Music Month! For the September Layout Contest, we'd love to see your layouts featuring music! You could scrap a favorite song, a concert, or even some musical instruments! Post your layouts in the September Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight ET on September 30th 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!
