  1. I am so happy, had to share the news. Got this message a few minutes ago: "Your art piece, I'm Rare, matched all contest rules and guidelines and has moved forward to judging." So Awesome!! Incidentally, this is the same piece that made it into New Hampshire's Institute of Disabilities 2024 calendar!

  3. This week I attended the Photoshop Creativity Virtual Summit -  I missed this community! Watching all those videos were great, lots of fantastic instructors! I have so many ideas of LOs to create - I think we need a new category for art /non photo LOs. What do you think?

  4. Who else was impacted by those storms last night? Wow - what a rough one!I had to high-tail it to my bathroom a few times. I hope there's minimal or no damage for you, and know that all is ok here!

      Glad you are ok Amy and Betty.  My sister in IN was in the basement sheltering but when the tornado got to her it went up north so missed her.  She sent a photo of the radar, it was close.   Scary...

      Lots of wind and heavy rain here-but all safe!

      We had winds and they were tracking possible tornadoes here in KY. We had a tree fall across the street into our yard around midnight. It took out the power lines but missed our house. The power company got here around 2 am, cleared the road, and got the power back on at 8 am. But now we have the top half of a tree in our front yard!

  5. I found out this morning that my favorite virtual travel platform is shutting down on April 11th. So bummed that it's not a joke ... :monstercry:

      I just signed up for it today! Perfect timing, right? :D What a shame.

      So funny @DixieLee! And very compassionate of you ... "Heygo" allowed ppl to travel the world without leaving their homes - you could watch and interact with the tour guide as they were giving the tour. And you could take pictures!! It was/is tip supported so you tipped the guides according to your ability. 

      I was learning so much and seeing all the great places I read about. Teachers were even taking their whole class on tours to compliment the lesson!

      It is really sad - many GREAT guides now out of work (there are over 500 guides worldwide). I am grieving for the loss of something that made me EXTREMELY happy ... Maybe I can make a LO about this? 

    4. MariJ

      A layout is always a good idea and thanks for explaining "Heygo".  I had no idea it was that involved, I thought it was only photos.  Now it is even cooler than I thought and now I am even sadder for you.   What a wonderful way to "travel" and as close to real life as possible.   I'm so sorry for you losing this important vehicle to other places.  My Dad was housebound and I can only imagine if he lived in this day and age how good it would have been for him and how he would have enjoyed it.    So sorry, Amy. 

  6. Who else likes fonts?! I have over 3.5K bogging down my system! Someday I will go through and delete the majority of what I don't use ... However - until that day ... 

    Here is a link to (with Angie's permission) a site that has hundreds of (very cute) free fonts: https://fontsforpeas.com/

      I have thousands of fonts, but since I got a new computer, I'm only installing them as I need them. So far it hasn't slowed things down. I do have a font manager, but don't really use it. 

    3. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      After all this chat about fonts I decided to see how many I have....over 1,500. It is sorta mind boggling to think I could ever really need that many!!!

      Hello, My name is Andrea and I'm a fontaholic! too many thousands of fonts. I need to trim back again...

  7. I'll be moving in Feb - yay, but what a PIA! Been busy packing, saving my computer 'til the last minute. I'm in a bit of a panic bc the main internet providers do not service that very rural area! Any suggestions on what I can do?

      Sounds wonderful Amy! Peaceful and serene. I'm sorry I don't have any suggestions other than whats been mentioned above except is there a quaint coffee shop nearby you could frequent?

      Good luck with the Internet. I have no recommendations for rural areas, but I am sure you will work it out. Happy packing - and unpacking. 

  8. Got my Photo Book in today! See the simple LO here. Overall, pleased with size, colors, quality & price. The cracks/creases though ... on 4 pages, are minor but do detract from the overall LO. Shutterfly is correcting that though.

    1. April Showers

      April Showers

      Shutterfly is great about fixing problems with the pages. I had one page that ended up with a white stripe across the top and they sent me a new book. 

    2. Amy D

      Yes - customer service was easy  - no back-n-forth! I was able to resolve it via CHAT!

      So glad you were happy with Shutterfly@

  9. I just placed an order for the layouts I made for 2022 Project CC - so excited to see how it looks!Estimated delivery is Jan 16. Hopefully it'll look great & I'll post pix of it!

      @alsoarty, I went with a 10x10, softcover from Shutterfly - hardcover was an "investment" - I want to see their quality before I really commit!

      I just got a notice from Costco that they have partnered with Shutterfly so if you have a membership look for that. Also, Shutterfly allows you to stack coupons and they typically have a least a few coupons. In other words you can use a percent off and add a free shipping if available. I hope it turns out for you Amy. I have used Shutterfly for the kids books often. I typically printed 8x8 and did do hard cover. This year I used Mixbook 10x10..

    4. Amy D

      Amy D

      Awesome! Love stacking coupons!!!

  10. Anyone else feel like there should be a new blinkie for those who scrap 24/7?! That's what I feel like I've been doing this month. I'm sooooo glad my kids are grown & the bathroom is right next to my room! Lol 😆

      I used the worlds from Rock around the clock, it’s hard to read on the blinking. Instead of rock I used scrap.

      @alsoarty Thanks! It's now part of my signature.
      @Amy D Great idea!

  11. I just bought a drawing tablet & pen from Amazon's Black Friday sale! 6x4 inches, it comes with 8 replacement nibs! Do you have/use one for digital scrapbooking?

      This brand is HUION - only 6x4 ... it had a lot of good reviews, "very easy for kids to learn ..." So I should be good! 😆

  12. Did you know that SG has a channel on YouTube?! Wow, so many cool tuts - now I can learn even more! https://www.youtube.com/user/ScrapGirls

      I will check that out! Thanks for the link.

  13. I found my original SG account & just finished looking through 15 pages of LOs I made from 2007-2009! I forgot about many of them - what a great stroll down memory lane :)

  14. I've been trying out some "artsy" LOs - I love the grungy, mixed media style. I haven't found a lot of those styles here at SG, but I just bought Marlene's Artsy Journal goodies & am so excited!

      Thanks! I'm learning so much & have added sooooo many sites to my bucket list! 

  17. If any SGs want to see more digi inspiration, visit Instagram. There is a #scrapgirls, #digitalscrapbooking, and most designers have a # too! BTW - I'm listen2yrmom if you want to "follow" me & know that I will "follow you back"!

  18. I have an EHD just for my goodies - there I organize them by collection title. I have them filtered alphabetically for the MvsM challenge. Sometimes I filter (arrange) them by date added - I'd get a very different LO then! If I organized them by designer, I'm afraid I'd forget where the collections are - but I'd sure know the designers!

    1. Mikelle

      Mikelle

      That's a great idea - I never thought to filter differently.  I break my collections apart into papers, embellishments, etc, but then I organize by designer, then collection, if that makes sense.  I'll have to try the different filters, especially by date - that would be interesting!

  19. Thanks for Cookery - love the kitchen theme & it'll get me in gear to make recipe cards of my kids favorite recipes!

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Agree, it is a great collection.
