Today's Special of the Day!

Time Traveler Collection Biggie
Time Traveler Collection Biggie

Save 30% off this Collection Biggie 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 Kerry Veale. In a brief interview, she shared these comments with us...

"I designed the Time Traveler Collection Biggie with a color palette that would work equally well for color, black and white, and sepia photos. It is a classic collection and lends itself well to layouts about trips as well as layouts featuring the men in our lives. And, paired with my coordinating Intaglio Collection Biggie, it gives you enough papers and design elements to complete an entire scrapbook, whether a heritage album or one with current photos."

1. What programs do you use?

Photoshop CS2 and Illustrator CS2 while listening to Pandora.

2. What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Artichoke hearts, garlic, olives, red peppers, onions, cheese.

A Designer's Life: Sarah Batdorf - Paint Lids

Some of the most intriguing things to capture my attention this year are paint lids. I think I first saw them in magazines to show current or up-and-coming color trends.

Holiday Cards

Oh, no! The annual Christmas photo card dilemma is upon me again!

How to Make an Interactive Digital Bulletin Board for Your Desktop

Does your refrigerator front look like mine? Magnetic photo frames, coupons, magnets from the museum, calendars and reminders, more magnets (from the last three vacations), kids' artwork, more magnets, doctor's appointment reminder cards, and even more paper pieces. Every so often, I just have to clean it all off, reduce the number of magnets and papers to the bare essentials, and get a clean look (for a little while, at least).

Three Favorite Products: Embellishments, Brushes, Styles

If you were asked to select three of your favorite products from different categories of the Boutique, would you be able to narrow your choices to just three? Most likely, you have dozens of favorites so your answer would be "no." After a few weeks of going back and forth with my three selections, I decided to concentrate more on the unique reasons why I would be sharing my three special products with you.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

7th Annual Cookie Recipe Card Exchange

It's time for our 7th Annual Cookie Recipe Card Exchange - and you're invited! We have a special, free recipe card template to help you get started. We love cookies, and we love getting new cookie recipes to try, so this year, all participants will receive a sweet little Scrap Girls Boutique gift just for joining in.

Here's how to join in the fun:

  • Design a 4x6-inch recipe card (at 300 dpi) using mostly Scrap Girls products. Use one of your favorite holiday cookie, candy, or sweet treat recipes - something "tried and true" is preferred.

  • All skill levels are encouraged to participate! If this is your very first time to try your hand at digital scrapbooking or if you're a pro, please join in the fun!

  • When you design your card, avoid putting any text within 1/4 inch of the edges. Anything close to the edges can get cut off when the card is printed.

  • Place your name or Scrap Girls Forum username somewhere on the recipe card (small text is fine).

  • Save your design as a JPG file, with a file name that includes your name or Scrap Girls Forum user name (for example, my file might be called aprilshowers_gingercrinkles.jpg.) We want to know who made what!

  • Attach your card to an email and send it to [email protected]. Please include your first and last name in the email. A confirmation will be emailed to each person who sends a recipe card so they know their card was received. Please allow 48 hours for confirmation.

  • Cards MUST be received by Midnight (ET) on Tuesday, December 11.

  • Unfortunately, if you don't send in a recipe card, you will not be able to get a copy of all the cards. No exceptions. Your recipe card is your ticket to all the fun!

  • We ask that you not post your recipe card in your Gallery, Facebook, or anywhere else until the swap is over. This way, we can all be surprised by the cards we get! You can post your own card in the Gallery or anywhere else any time after December 13.

  • Please don't sell or give away any of the finished cards on blogs, emails, etc. You may print some or all the recipe cards as a gift for someone you know personally, but wide-scale distribution or sale is not allowed, as per our commercial use terms, which can be read in full here.

  • You can submit more than one card, if you wish - the more the merrier!

  • On or before December 13, each participant will receive the links (via email - the same way that links come when you buy Scrap Girls products) to download the recipe card files.

- April Martell (April Showers)

Games

December's Forum Game: BINGO!

Join us for an exciting game of December BINGO on the Scrap Girls Forum!! Pick 25 words from the list provided and send them in an email to [email protected] with a subject line that says "BINGO CARD - your Scrap Girls Forum username" by Sunday, December 2nd (Midnight EDT) in order to play in the first round. The first round will begin on Monday, December 3rd. If you miss the first round deadline, you can still play! Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.

Each day (Monday through Saturday), a member of the Welcoming Committee will call five random words from the BINGO list. Match just 15 of those words to win a BINGO. You must be first to call "BINGO!" in the game thread to win that round. After a winner is called, the boards will be cleared and a new round will begin the following day.

Each winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! We like to see lots of winners, so please remember that each person can only win one round during the month. Have fun!

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