      thanks, Debbie. it was lots of fun (my first time actually participating in one of these!) 

  2. Don't forget to grab some new blinkies today! 


  3. Are you taking part in the challenge and want to chat? Join us here:
  4. Hi Everyone! Happy INSD! As you might have noticed we are pretty darn excited about our new site. We want you to fall in love with it to so our challenges today are based around our new site. Here is the first one. Tutorial Challenge - Valerie We've built a terrific new Tutorial Index to help you easily find all the best content on our site. And we keep adding new tutorials to it each week. We are especially proud of our "Getting Started" section because we re-did all these tutorials to help newbies. For this challenge we'd love to have you take a look at this tutorial about Reasons to Digital Scrapbook and create a layout showing us your favorite reason to go digi. Since we don't have any chat software this year feel free to chat away on this thread! You might have noticed I'm not Valerie, but we'll get you going and I'll go find someone to help!
  5. I'm not sure whats happened to Valerie - she should be here. But go ahead and start and I'll get it posted right now.
  6. Sorry ladies - The forum software we use discontinued their chat software this month. We haven't yet found a better option so we can't do chats today. If you have any good ways you know of to chat with people PM me. We'd thought about Facebook Live or Google Hangouts but didn't get a strong thumbs-up on that from the team.
  7. If you are having any trouble with your blinkies, another way to get them into your signature is to add it as html code instead. Just go to the signature box and hit the button in the left hand corner where it says "Source". That will make the code appear. For each blinkie you want to add use this structure <img alt="name of blinkie" src="url of blinkie"> So the Motivator Badge would look like this <img alt="motivator badge" src="http://scrapgirls.com/BLINKIES/Motivator_button.gif"> Make sure you get the quotation marks on both sides of the the url, and made sure everything is in between the <p>.....</p> As a bonus tip - I've found it's easiest to add them if you have two Forum windows open - one with this thread and one with your signature box so you can copy and paste easily.
  8. How are your blinkies looking? Upload our new ones and clean up your broken links today! We'll give you a $1 gift certificate for doing it!



  9. Hillary - thanks for the note on the Font size! I will be taking notes and will look into a few things to see if we can change them after the weekend.
  10. To celebrate our website and forum "facelift" we've created a bunch of fun new bling for you to add to the bottom of your signature. Below are the previews and urls for the new ones. If you need some help on how to add a blinkie, check out this quick tutorial. We also discontinued some of our older blinkies, and the ones we still are using all had to move to a new location on our server. If your sporting a bunch of broken links in your signature right now this is an awesome chance to clean those up too. You'll find the full list of old blinkies that are still active under the list of new blinkies.

  13. Are you ready to Party? International Scrapbook Day is Saturday May 6th and we will be celebrating all weekend long. This year we have an extra fun thing to celebrate - our new website!! Over the past few months we've updated both the look and backend infrastructure of our website, blog and forum. So we are taking the opportunity to introduce you to some of our favorite new features of the site. Here is how you can get in on all the action! Scavenger Hunt We have a fun scavenger hunt that will tour you around the coolest new features of our site, and will end with a special iNSD freebie download. Don't worry - it should take you less than 5 minutes to complete. Click here to get started Blinkie & Badge Bonanza We've created a whole bunch of new "bling" that matches our updated site that you can add to your Forum signature. We really want to see these blinkies and badges get used, so we've sweetened the pot! Email us before/after screenshots of your Forum signature featuring the new bling and we'll send you back a $1 gift certificate! Email us at hello@scrapgirls.com before May 9th to grab this deal. Challenge Schedule: We have a day of challenges planned the celebrate our new site. We will be giving a $5 gift certificate out for each challenge, and if you complete all 4 you will be entered into the drawing for a $25 gift certificate! Will be posting the challenge threads throughout the day so check the forum at the scheduled time. 9:00 a.m. ET - Tutorial Challenge We've built a terrific new Tutorial Index to help you easily find all the best content on our site. And we keep adding new tutorials to it each week. We are especially proud of our "Getting Started" section because we re-did all these tutorials to help newbies. For this challenge we'd love to have you take a look at this tutorial about Reasons to Digital Scrapbook and create a layout showing us your favorite reason to go digi. 12:00 a.m. ET - Siggy Challenge Our new Forum is more than just a pretty face. We also did a major software upgrade that makes using the Forum much easier. One thing we are really in love with is how much easier it is to upload images. With this challenge we are encouraging you to give it a try, by creating a new siggy (forum signature) and uploading it following these directions. We also would love to encourage you to update your blinkies today and get rid of your broken links. Here's how. 3:00 p.m. ET -Color Challenge If you'd grown tired of all the purple on the ScrapGirls site we have news for you. It's gone! We've got a fresh, modern new color palette across our entire site created by our designer Syndee Nuckles. We are so over the moon about this new look that we are focusing this challenge around using our new color palette. 6:00 p.m. ET - Tutorial Challenge We want to finish up the day celebrating why we are here. Without scrapbooking there would be no ScrapGirls! We have the perfect tutorial on our lovely new blog to inspire a layout for iNSD - Scrap What You Love! Go crazy on this challenge and make a page that expresses everything you love about scrapbooking! And of course it wouldn't be a ScrapGirl's party without a great free kit with purchase and huge sale!
  14. I put a bug in our designer's ears yesterday. Hopefully someone will take this on. We did used to have a few military kits before and we really do need to replace them.
  15. Welcome to Scrap Girls Angello! So great to have you here!
  16. Sorry the upgrade took so long! If you are a little lost by the new look feel free to ask questions or check out the Forum Tutorials

  17. We will be doing an update to the Forum software this week. The forum will be offline between 4/26 and 4/27 for about 24 hours. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  23. Just saw this thread and talk of a potential NW meet up. Count me in if it happens out here. I'll follow the thread and try to keep up on it.
  24. Could you go into the Gmail account and set up a rule? I haven't done it in a while, but I think you could set up a rule in Gmail that says that everything from sender X (in this case ScrapGirls) should automatically be forwarded to email address Y (your Thunderbird account).
