Tips For Navigating The New Store

16 April 2015 - 10:18 AM

Our new and improved ScrapGirls Design Shop is open for business!  There have been some great new updates that we wanted to share with you, so let’s take a stroll through the aisles together…


This is the home page of the new shop.  To log in, click on the “My Account” tab and you will see a drop down menu with your options.  You can still use your previous boutique log in information, no need to re-register.



Once you have logged into your account you have several options:




Now that we logged in, let’s shop! 

The sorting options have all been combined into one drop down menu.





You now have a “View All” option on the per page drop down menu- no more flipping through pages.





An awesome new feature is the “Already purchased” warning on the product pages.





Want to add something to your wish list?  It’s super easy, just click the heart button. Your Wish List can be found under the “My Account” drop down menu once you are logged in.




If you are looking for something specific, you have 2 options: the regular search feature or the Advanced Search option.





On each Product Page, you have several options:




So you have found what you were shopping for and now it’s time to check out.  To view what is in your cart, click the shopping cart icon.  While viewing the items in your cart, you may notice an “Edit Options” button.  This is where you can change the License Type of your item if you are a Scrap 4 Hire customer.




Let’s check out!  Once you click on the “Check Out” button you will see that you need to choose a payment method, and add any coupon codes you may be using.




After successfully checking out you will get an email with your download keys.  One big difference from the previous system is that you will receive a receipt from each designer that you have ordered from.





Your account will reflect this, as well.



The download keys will bring you to the product download page where you can download the files you purchased from that designer.



Another great feature I found was that I did not have to wait 10 seconds between each download-woot!

So that’s our new store in a nutshell.  If you have any other questions, feel free to post them on the message boards and we will be happy to answer them for you.

Monday Random Challenge 4-13-2015

Today's Random Challenge comes from the wonderful world of Pinterest.  I love Pinterest, I find so many awesome quotes and motivational sayings (among many, many other things!) while cruising through the posts.

Today I would like you to use this quote on your layout: 
Today is full of possible. I found this quote on there the other day and love the optimistic feeling it gave me! 

Once you finish your layout, post it to the Monday Random Challenge Gallery.

Monday Random Challenge 3-30-2015

We hope you have enjoyed our Either/Or challenges this month.  It’s been interesting to see everyone’s choices each week.  Today we are wrapping up these challenges talking about Collections.  Some scrappers prefer to use just one collection on their layout- after all, our designers are genius at making beautiful collections full of coordinating papers, embellishments and word art.  The hard work has been done for us and we get to play with all the fun pieces to make a cohesive layout.  Others like the variety of picking and choosing from several different collections mixing and matching for a more eclectic look.


So, which do you prefer to use on your layouts?  Choose to use either one single collection or a minimum of 3 different collections on your layout. Once your layout is finished, upload your page to the Monday Layout Challenge Gallery.

This week for our Either/Or challenge let’s talk about templates and scraplifts.  We all need a bit of outside inspiration from time to time, and where better to find some than in our boutique and gallery.  With templates you get the bare bones to start a layout, it’s mostly about helping you with the general placement of photos, papers and embellishments.  Scraplifting refers to using another layout to inspire you.  It could be anything you like about the layout from photo placement to color combinations.  Often how a fellow scrapper uses the embellishments will inspire me, especially if it’s a unique cluster.


So, which do you prefer?  We will be using our fabulous designers Cheri Thielke, Laurel Lakey or Amanda Fraijo-Tobin for inspiration.  Make your layout using either a template from their boutique or scraplift a layout from their gallery (or boutique)- be sure you give credit if you do a scraplift. Once your layout is finished, upload your page to the Monday Layout Challenge Gallery.

Monday Random Challenge 3-16-2015

Today for our Either/Or challenge we are talking about using white space.  White space refers to the technique of concentrating your photos and embellishments in one general area of your layout, leaving the rest of your page unmarked.  It gives a clean aesthetic appeal to your layout that guide the eyes right to your focal point and lets it focus there.  Other scrappers like a nice full layout that draws the eye all over the page from corner to corner with lots of photos and embellishments.


So, which do you prefer?  Make a layout with either lots of white space and all of your photos and embellishments concentrated in one corner of your page or a more  embellished layout with photos, embellishments, word art etc. in three out of the four corners on your page. Once your layout is finished, upload your page to the Monday Layout Challenge Gallery.
