Today's Special of the Day!

Dem Bones Collection Mini
Dem Bones Collection Mini

Save 30% off this Collection Mini today only!

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 Angela Blanchard. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"Dem Bones was created with a spooky, gothic feel and its dark colors with highlights of orange and teal work well to set off those Halloween photos. With its pile of skulls, glowing candles, and skeleton hands, it's perfect to showcase those adult Halloween parties as well!"

1. Do you blog? If so, where can we find you?

No, I haven't got the hang of social networking yet.

2. What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Homemade crust with tomato sauce, mozzarella, olives and fresh basil.

A Designer's Life: Jan Ransley - A Juggling Act

When I gave up my job as business manager for a telecommunications company a few years ago to support my husband in his business, I thought my days would be a little less manic, my working week a little shorter. Wrong! My days have become even more of a juggling act.

What Being a Scrap Girl Means to Me - Reflections of Some of Scrap Girls Designers and Staff

Since this week is Scrap Girls 8th Anniversary Celebration, we found ourselves super excited – and a little reflective - as the date drew near. The Scrap Girls team includes designers, layout artists, and support staff spread out across the world and sprinkled through most time zones. We each came to Scrap Girls at different times for different reasons, but being a part of Scrap Girls is what unifies us as a team.

My Favorite Things about Being a Scrap Girl - April Martel

On October 20, 2006, I purchased a magazine about digital scrapbooking at the local scrapbook store. I spent a few hours browsing through a long list of sites that offered freebies. When I got to the Scrap Girls Boutique, I found exactly what I was looking for - Ro's Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed for Photoshop. I must have signed up for the newsletter while I was shopping, because one showed up in my inbox announcing lots of fun chats and silly contests celebrating Scrap Girls 2nd Anniversary. It has been six years since I found Scrap Girls. I couldn't have imagined that first day how being a Scrap Girl would become such a big part of my life.

What Being a Scrap Girl Means to Me - Debbie Cleek

This is the first anniversary I get to spend with Scrap Girls, and I feel so fortunate to be a small part in eight fabulous years of Purple Power. In June, Ro handed me a rare gem, and it's taken me a few months to realize just how special Scrap Girls really is.

Introducing Two New Designers

Today, I am doubly-excited because I get to introduce you to two new designers.

A Unique Way to Use Embellishments

For the past five years, I have looked forward to the first day of every month; that's right, Scrap Girls Club day! Each month the club is anticipated with enthusiasm and excitement as we wait for the reveal. The designers at Scrap Girls out-do themselves as they put together an incredible bargain and goodie bag brimming with papers, embellishments, alphas, and even surprises! One of the best things about the Scrap Girls Clubs are that there are so many creative items included in the club, you can make endless numbers of layouts with one collection and its contents. The clubs are a great way to stretch your scrapping buck.

Scrap Girls, Etc. is a column pulling bits and pieces from all over Scrap Girls. Stay tuned as Scrap Girls' team members bring you tutorials, musings, recipes, interviews, design/software tips and tricks, layout walk-throughs, and who knows what else!
