Christmas Wonderland Collection
Christmas Wonderland Collection

Save 30% off this Collection 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 Julie White. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"I love the Christmas Wonderland collection because it was designed with peace and love as the inspiration. It is a kit created from the heart of my faith to preserve family memories from joyous holiday seasons. I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season filled with love."

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

It actually depends on the collection. I start with whatever pieces are clearest in my mind.

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

I am a night owl living with three early morning people.

A Designer's Life: Katherine Weaver - For Bread Lovers Everywhere

I love to bake. So when I'm not on my computer, there's a good chance you'll find me in the kitchen. Of course, I love cakes and pies, but I'd have to say that baking savory and sweet breads are my favorite. After spending many years living in Europe, when I catch the aroma of freshly baked loaves of bread, hot from the oven (or bread machine), it's more than just a familiar smell. It conjures happy memories from my childhood and earlier adult days abroad.

2013 Calendar - Easy, Colorful, Customizable!

Can you believe it - 2013 is just around the corner! Are you ready? One way I like to get ready for the New Year is with a new calendar. This is one of my favorite projects to create. I have been making calendars for myself as well as gifts for my mother and mother-in-law each Christmas. I love the way Scrap Girls allows me to create such beautiful and unique personalized calendars. The possibilities are indeed endless. Let me show you how easy it really is to make these one-of-a-kind calendars.

Scrap Girls Celebrates Movember!

This year Scrap Girls is joining a world-wide fund raiser known as Movember. At the beginning of November, men around the globe start growing moustaches to bring awareness to men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. I know very few of us will ever develop these diseases, but we all have fathers, brothers, husbands, or friends who might. This is a great opportunity to show our support of them and have a little fun at the same time.

Art Journaling

What is Art Journaling? I asked the same question earlier this year when a friend was taking an Art Journaling Class. I had never heard of it and wondered what she meant. I searched online and found this definition of sorts:

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.
