One of the questions I get asked most often is, “When I go to the Scrap Girls Boutique to sign into my account, why doesn’t it recognize me automatically? I get your newsletters every day, so shouldn’t it recognize me?”
Good question – and here’s why: Scrap Girls actually has three different locations that you need to sign up/register at to use all the parts of our site.
First, there’s the newsletter. If you are reading this, you have already figured out that part. This sign-up location simply requires an email address, and no further information is needed.
Second, we have a Boutique, which is our place to go shopping for all those amazing Scrap Girls digital scrapbooking products. Until you make your first purchase with Scrap Girls, you will not be signed up for a Boutique account. During the checkout process, you’ll put in all your account information.
To do this, simply add the items you want to purchase to your “shopping bag.” Once you are ready to checkout, click on the words “Shopping Bag” in the upper left area of your screen.
Then, you will be redirected to a page where you can review your order. If everything looks right, then click on “Proceed to check out.”
Once you are brought to the next page, choose “Check out and create a customer account now!”
From there, the Boutique will walk you through creating your account and finalizing your order.
Please keep in mind, if something stops or delays the completion of your order process, then your account will not be set up. You must complete the order process once for the account information to be saved to our system. You will need to go through the above steps again, including filling in all your information and completing your order.
Finally, the third place to register is the Scrap Girls Forum/Gallery. This lets you take part in all the community aspects of Scrap Girls, and this is where the fun really starts to happen! This is a separate sign-up from either the Newsletter or the Boutique, because we use a third-party solution for our Message Board. The company we contract with manages the Message Board and Gallery, and since it is their primary business, they take care of the huge database that is required.
To register, go to the home page of Scrap Girls (www.scrapgirls.com) and click on “Forum” in the top banner. At the next screen, look to the upper right corner and you’ll see the link to register.
Once you have clicked on that link, the site will walk you through all the steps necessary to register for the Forum/Gallery. That’s it!
Three places to register, three ways to participate and benefit from all we have going here at Scrap Girls. If at any time during your sign-up processes, you run into any issues, please email me at email@example.com, and I’ll be happy to help you out!
And if you’re new to Scrap Girls, then let me be the first to say, “Welcome!”
