How I Celebrate Digital Scrapbooking Day!

Good morning everyone and Happy international Digital Scrapbooking Day weekend! As a digital scrapbooking designer - which is what I'm doing "full time" right now, I've been super busy getting new products ready - I must say, my new kit is one of my favorites so far! and preparing for the live chat and scrap events I'll be hosting at my store GingerScraps.net! Live events are my favorite - because I get to interact with my fans and customers.
Yesterday, I posted some "live" behind-the-scenes photos on my Facebook Fan Page - Simple Girl Scraps, and I thought it'd be fun to give you my "advice" for having a great DSD!  

Be Prepared:
I've got a "office' set up in the basement (that way when I blast my playlists - no one has to listen to me sing!) Ooops! That's a sneak peek of the FREE KIT I'll be giving away to those who complete my Triple Threat Scrap Event this weekend! So this is what my desk currently looks like - scrapbook paper inspirational quotes from Mambi with washi tape. I'm a little obsessed with washi tape, but more on that later! and I can totally see how dirty my screen is! Better clean that!
My Must Haves: 
*Water - mine is in my awesome Tupperware Eco Water Bottle!
*Caffeine - I've been working constantly for weeks prepping for DSD! I need all the help I can get!
*Music - Lately I've been using Songza online to stream some fun playlists. Get Pumped: Pop Anthems is my current favorite!
*Snacks - I usually go for a light popcorn (no butter on my keyboard!) or M&Ms!

 Don't Forget About Real Life:
During the Live Chat last night - it was 11pm-midnight my time - a true Night Owls Chat, I was snacking on popcorn, then all of a sudden realized I had finished the whole darn bowl! This is because I had completely forgotten to eat a REAL dinner and was starving! DSD activities are really fun, and you're going to want to scrap and chat and shop and do EVERYTHING...but don't forget about the real life stuff this weekend - spend time with the family, get up and stretch, go for a walk, MAKE DINNER!

Try Something New:
I was SO pleased to hear that several of the girls who joined my live event in the GingerScraps Chatroom had never done a Speed Scraps or Slow Scrap before! We had so much fun together! So whether you're entering a contest, or trying a designer challenge or joining a chat or speed scrap - have fun with it! DSD is to celebrate our hobby and craft! Check out the GingerScraps forum if you need some ideas! Join me TONIGHT for another chat and slow scrap!

12 Printable Scriptures for Women

Happy Sunday everyone! I made the move back east last month - and it's been a crazy month. I'm still looking for a full time job here (which is tough in a small community with an even tougher economy of course) but the extra family time with my sister and parents is worth it. In the meantime, I'm enjoying my direct sales businesses (Did You Know? I'm a Tupperware Lady and a Younique Gal? - and I love it!) and I'm especially excited to have the extra creative time. I officially opened my Simple Girl Scraps shop today at GingerScraps. Head on over to check it out! 
Basically, I feel very blessed to be doing what I'm doing right now. As women, especially as we have more on our plates with family, activities, trying to stay fit, eat healthy, run businesses etc... we get busy and often forget who we are and what it means to be an amazing woman! We've got it going on ladies!! 
I chose some of my favorite Scriptures - especially ones that apply to us busy women and a font I love called Stardust from Creative Market and a few watercolor brushes and made these twelve printables to share. I thought they'd be great if you print your own calendars for planers. They're all 8.5x11 and will print on a standard printer. I chose lighter backgrounds so they won't kill your printer ink! They're in individual JPG format for easy printing.  

Ladies & Gents...IF you choose to post these on your Facebook or Instagram etc, I'd really appreciate the shout out for credit!
Feel free to stalk me! I'd love to know who you are!

I shared the download with one of my Creative Team - Brandi, and she chose her favorite to print and frame today! Instant art! Isn't it super cute! Add a link in the comments with your projects! I'd love to see them!

I love autumn - it's a season I tend to spend a lot of time outdoors in. I love the leaves, or taking the pug for a walk - and it's great for photos! The inspiration for this kit came from the improv photoshoot I did for my sister and her boyfriend on Canadian Thanksgiving! Aren't they adorable? I hope you enjoy my November Buffet Kit: Fall in Love by Simple Girl Scraps. It's available for 50% off from November 1st-5th!
