Alphabet tips.....

Do you have lots of leftover know the ones where you are missing the one letter you need....

here are a few tips for using them up

* heat emboss the different font letters you want for your title to all one color

* combine different letters. overlapping and skewing to use a school photo mat

* use random letters, numbers and symbols of colors that match your page on a border for school pages.

* use your dictionary, on line dictionary or a word builder site to come up with a word using the left over letters you do have!

*place your letters all over your background cardstock, them use mist, dabbers, ink or paint! You can peel the letters off after or leave them on for added texture! (if you want to peel them off after, before you stick them to your page, stick them to your clothes a couple of times to remove some of the adhesive therefore reducing the chance of ripping your paper when you are peeling the letters off)

Hope you find these tips helpful!

Have a wonderful day!

New Member Friday

With the gallery down, I thought I wasn't going to be able to do a member feature. However, with the design team search going on we have quite a few new members on the message board. I took a look at some of their blogs and thought I would show you a few of their recent creations taken from their blogs.

First is Tenny (santoso10ny). Look at this great double page layout. I love how she added the flourishes and bling to the pumpkins.

Ellen (howdee) has shared some recent creations with us but here's another one that I really like. Love the colors and the big scallop border under the photo. It's perfect with the pattern paper.

Jodi (luvalotmum) created this darling layout for the My Little Shoebox design team call. Can you believe she didn't get picked for the team with this layout?

Be sure to stop by the message board and say hi to these ladies and all our other new members.

Design Team Call Extended

Just a reminder that the Spring 2011 Design Team Call Submissions are due soon. I had originally said April 15th, but since I have a crazy weekend and probably won't be able to look at them until after the weekend anyway, I am extending the deadline a couple days to Sunday April 17th. This is a great opportunity to get on a fabulous design team and have the chance to work with one of two awesome kits each month. Just as an idea of the first kits you may get to work with for May, here are the May sneak peeks. You can find all the details on submitting on the message board.

May 2011 Sugar Sneak

May 2011 Spice Sneak

Message Board News!!!--Please Read

Hey all Scrapdango members,

I know that there is some confusion as to whether the message board is still up and running. I just want to assure you all that it is. Many of you probably had the message board bookmarked as, and that link does not work anymore, but you can still find the message board at The main homepage and store are also still up. You can find it all at, so make sure that you make that your bookmark. The gallery is down since it was on, so I will have to figure that out and hopefully get that back up soon, but more importantly, we can still chat with all the Dango gals on the message board. I do apologize for the previous Member Monday posts where all the fabulous layouts we featured have disappeared.
