Today's Special of the Day!

Super 7 Spread By Kim Meeder
Super 7 Spread By Kim Meeder

Save 30% off this Super 7 Spread 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 Kim Meeder. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it! So, it should come as no surprise that I love to design collections using the rich, warm colors of the fall season. Another favorite of mine happens to be the Super 7 Spread kits found in the Scrap Girls Boutique. These small kits are jam packed with goodies. In addition to the digital scrapbooking papers and embellishments included, each kit contains the two, layered PSD files needed to complete the featured double-page layout displayed on the product page. My Super 7 Spread by Kim Meeder is filled with falling leaves, thanksgiving sentiments and a pop of color making it perfect for most any subject. Nolan, my grandson, is the cutie patootie featured in the double-spread layout. By the way, he's another of my favorites in life!"

1. When designing a collection what do you start with first? Papers, embellishments, word art?

My inspiration for a collection usually starts with a mood, theme or embellishments. However, when I start the actual design process, I always start with the papers. I love designing papers.

2. Are you an early morning designer or do you burn the midnight candle?

I'm an early morning designer. Everything is fresh to me in the morning. A lot of my ideas and inspiration come while I am in the shower. What's up with that? I've heard quite a few people say the same thing. I guess it's the one place where I am alone and can think without being interrupted (if I'm lucky).

A Designer's Life: Jo Corne - Year Two

Having just entered my second year of designing for Scrap Girls, I have been giving some thought as to how I could streamline my workflow, how I could be more organized, creative, and therefore, more productive. And that would enable me to create more products on a regular basis for you, our wonderful customers!

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!

Halloween

Halloween is such a fun time of year for all ages! When I take pictures, I always try to capture not only the colorful costumes, but the home/outdoor decor and special treats, too. It’s all part of what makes Halloween memorable.

Introducing Marlene Peacock

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Marlene Peacock - our new designer with the colorful name.

3 Favorite Products: Collections, Templates and Styles, Oh my!

There are some products in the Scrap Girls Boutique that I use in most of my layouts: Collections, ScrapSimple Templates and Styles. If I needed to create a layout without any of them, it would definitely be a challenge. In this article, I'll show you a few of my favorites and explain why I chose to use them on my digital scrapbook page.

Creative Cards Chat

Can't wait to see you there!

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 November 7th, we'll have a Color Challenge! Create a layout using the rich warm tones of autumn.

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!

All are welcome, new and long time members included. You do need to have Java installed on your computer to access the Live Chat.

Games

November's Forum Game: Products Picks Game

This November, we are playing the Products Picks game where we encourage you to stroll through the aisles of the boutique and do a little window shopping.

Each Monday through Saturday in November, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post the name of one or two product designers in this Product Picks game thread. You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then head over to the Product Picks game thread and share the product name, boutique link, and a brief explanation of why you chose that product.

At the end of the month, members who haves posted links to 41 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 Gift Certificates. Members who have posted links to 16-40 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 Gift Certificates. And members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates.

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