ScrapSimple Product/Club

Recommended Posts

One of the issues alot of designers run into is when designing ScrapSimple clubs (and/or ScrapSimple product) is figuring out what kind of product customers want.

So I thought I would throw it out on the message board to see what kind of request we come up with.  Is there any type of SS (ScrapSimple) product that you just can't get enough of, and you have to buy each one that comes out?  Is there a SS theme that you wish we would cover in the club (keep in mind we have to keep this pretty generic or something that alot of people could use) Is there anything that you wish we had more of (maybe a certain type of SS papers ...texture, floral, etc)

Let those suggestions/thoughts flow ladies  🙂   Thanks!!

I like using brushes and styles.

I love styles of course, use them all the time.  But I also find myself looking for more overlays - patterns, grungy, floral, doesn't matter, I'd like lots more overlays!  They're so versatile, especially when you start using styles on them or clipping different papers to them, or using blending modes.

Overlays. Textured brushes. layered textures/overlays, so we have more capability to blend the overlay/masks. (I hope that makes sense?)

I mostly use layout templates and embellishment templates with photo slots.   I’m a “clipper” and don’t enjoy recoloring!
But, since I’m mostly a soft blending scrapper, I also LOVE background blenders,  photos masks or almost anything that blends!

My first thought is more templates! LO templates as well as layered cluster embellishment templates so we can color and add texture to bits and pieces instead of the whole cluster.

So another question.  For a December SS club, would you want something that can be used for holiday/winter time?  Or would you rather have something that you could use for documenting your 2020 layouts?

Also ScrapSimple club theme's, what type of things would you want?

I know we've done food/cooking a few times.  What about something based around photography?  If so what type of things would you want to see in it?

I guess I'm trying to say i'm doing the Dec SS club and I have a hard time deciding what I want to do.  Also I need more ideas for SS club theme's

What I like most about ScrapSimple is being able to use my own colors. I like your SS Clubs because you make that possible. One example: the damask patterned papers in Capturing Moments are fabulous! I can color them vivid or soft or anything I want. 
Themes aren't as important to me as versatility,  but I know themes are important to others. Any theme is fine with me if it allows versatile coloring, is what I'm saying. So, for example, we had cooking-themed SS Club a few years back from a designer who isn't here anymore. The embellishments included a tin-foil paper, wooden spoon, a cutting board, and recipe cards. Basically those didn't give us much choice in color! So... if you are thinking of a holiday theme, try to design papers and embellishments that can be colored different ways. Not a peppermint cane, please! :D 
Photography as a theme is fine with me, by the way.

Thank you so much for that input....that really does help me a TON!! 

The more I think about it, I will probably stay away from Holiday theme.  There's so much of that released that time of the year, I feel like it might be nice to get something else

Angie, I like the idea of the SSClub being for Project Life type pages.... both for this year for those who do it at the end of the year and then for 2020 ready for the new year.

This is the first time I have been on here for a while. I am trying to get back into my digital scrapping. The tumbler making has put me over the edge. I could work 24/7 and not keep up with all the orders I have been getting. I am retired. I never realized it would become a full-time job. LOL

I want actions for PSE. I love some of the football pictures you do but the action only works on PS. Adobe just came out with a watercolor action and it really doesn't play fair with PSE. I also love styles. I think you do a great job with keeping up with the demands of digital scrappers. I am loving doing mixed media right now too.

I love the idea of you getting ready for 2020.

I agree, not themed just for the Holiday season, versatility is whatI love. And this. Oh this month’s SS club is fantastic btw Angie. The layered grunge/overlays is just what we want.

I'm sad I didn't get my tumbler orders in soon enough.  LOL

Great idea Karen-I love the idea of actions and Angie's sports pictures are amazing!!  

Layout templates!!  With lots of layers!   Grungy paper templates (can't wait to play with this month's club!!)

Everyone is comining up  with great ideas.

More grungy blenders like your club would be good.

Templates for multi photo pages  and that can be used for ProjectLife too with overlays for photos to look framed and vintage.

Actions and brushes are always awesome.

I'm actually thinking putting out a "value pack" of sorts for the Project Life people.  This would include templates, word art, from frames and some basic papers/embellishments that can be used.  I'm thinking it will be more of a Photobook type of item, but can easily be use for Project Life.   That way I can put as much in it as I would like and not have to be in the constraints of what the club has to have in it

This may not be "club-worthy" but I would like some photo/embellishment templates for social media.  Something that I could put 3+ photos in to post on FB instead of just uploading them individually.  Like mini-collages?  Simple with a paper background frame?  Am I making any sense?

I use dynamic-type brushes (as opposed to the ones you stamp - I just use the .pngs for those), styles, and all kinds of blenders the most when it comes to Scrap Simple things.

I think the photo-book options would be awesome!
