Flip Pal Portable Scanners – Free Give-Away!

The Flip Pal folks make the handy, portable scanner that's the size of a typical tablet and can go anywhere with you. It's able to scan all kinds of 3-D objects and has a great stitch function for scanning large items and then "stitching" them together into a seamless large image. It's a great little number to have if you want to start integrating more variety into your digital scrapbooking layouts and craft projects. Plus, it's unbelievably convenient!

Flip Pal is giving away one of their units (including a carrying case) to one of our lucky customers! From now until the end of October, we will be running a contest to help us pick a winner. Do you have a creative, practical, or interesting idea for a project that you would love to use a Flip Pal scanner for? Then go over to the Scrap Girls Blog and tell us about it! Leave us a comment describing your idea, and on October 31st, we will pick the best entry as the winner!

If you are chosen as our winner, we want to keep up with you and find out how you are using your Flip Pal. We will be featuring you in our Newsletter once a season over the next year. Get your creative juices flowing and let us know what you would do with a Flip Pal.

Here are some ideas I came up with to get you inspired:

  • Go on a "foodie" vacation and use it to scan the menus from all your favorite restaurants

  • Take it to the thrift store and scan some cool fabric patterns to use for printable crafts

  • Take it to the cemetery and scan your family's headstones

Additionally, to keep you inspired with your Flip Pal, we have designated our own April Martell to be our official Flip Pal Featurette. Many of you know April (April Showers) from our Forum Gallery where she shows off her wonderful heritage photos in stunning layouts. April will be doing occasional tutorials in our Newsletter showing how she uses her Flip Pal to create her layouts.

I hope you are as excited about Flip-Pal as I am! Don't forget to enter on our blog by tomorrow night!

Scrap Girls Etc.

A Designer's Life: Jen Reed - Yes, I really did that!

Last week, we had our back room's windows replaced. Of course, this meant everything needed to be cleared away from the windows in order for the installers to reach them. This is easier said than done.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

While driving across town, I came up with this fun plan for my latest layout: Include something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Sound familiar? Hey, if it's good for brides, it must be good for a digital scrapbooking layout, right?

Introducing Ginny Whitcomb

Ginny is a talented artist in every media imaginable, but she especially excels at painting. Oils, paints, and canvas used to be her tools of choice, but after she had filled every blank wall in her house and cleaned more paintbrushes than she could count, she discovered digital painting and never looked back.

Preserving Memories

Why do you scrapbook? There are so many answers to this question, but let me share with you some of the reasons why I scrapbook.

On October 31st, we'll do an All About Home Challenge! Create a layout showing us something about your home - past or present. A favorite room, your comfy reading nook, the special times with family around the dinner table, the exterior, a home improvement project, your first apartment - show future generations your living arrangements!

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!
