True Scrap

Welcome fellow True Scrap Students!  I am looking forward to visiting with you and answering questions. No one asks anything anymore so I digress and neglect my poor blog here.

I have a friend who loves using the stamping feature in Storybook creator. What is your favorite feature? I showed an old post to this friend as I was acquainting her with my (very neglected) blog. I think it is the one process that I developed that I use the most when utilizing elements that I have gotten from the web. I am linking back to it and would be glad to have input on the way you might deal with this same need. I am open for questions and ideas.

 Old post about masks.

Camera as appendage

I get teased all the time about having my camera with me at all times. I also get grief because I talk so much. So I have started telling people that a photo is worth a thousand words and we all know how much I like to talk. So this is my way of getting a thousand words in edgewise. I know I have been MIA for a bit, but this was fun to post twice in a row. Thanks for inspiring me Izzy!


Paperclipping Digi Show read my mail.

I know I have been gone and this blog went stale. Today I listened to Paperclipping Digi Show from 3/5/2011 and they read a comment I left. It was exciting to hear my screen name being discussed. That was a blast. Go check it out.

Have fun,

Long Time Lotsa Changes

I have neglected my blog greatly. Honestly, I wasn't as impressed initially with the upgrade to Storybook Creator 3 as I had hoped. So I curled up in a fetal position and sucked my thumb for a few months and then I offered to help a friend with the header for a blog. (Wouldn't ya know I saved it in the wrong size) Sorry, BIG. Must resize to upload again. See the blog and maybe watch for the header to go up  here: As I double checked just know it was up yay. Not a complete loss.

So Tutorial for that coming by this weekend.

Watch for another unrelated post later today.

I may be interested in this again.

Amy asked:
Hi! I have an unrealated question for you! I am a consultant and have been working on some pages in an album using the Discover Baby predesigned pages. In my album, pages 1-4 appear, but the rest of the pages are all white/blank. When I try to "add a page", it gives me an error message of "bad data"? I have gone in and looked at my content and it appears there, showing all pages, and the content box is open. Any idea why this is happening to me and how I can fix it?
Just in case you get ahead of me and not read to the end before you save your work : ) I suggest you do that first.
The first thought that comes to mind is that you may need to download or reinstall your kit and unlock it again. I think an interruption could have caused an incomplete installation. My suggestion would be to save pages as before you do this so that you have the pages you are working on should they be affected. I haven't ever had to uninstall a kit. I may look into that a bit further.  Anyone with better answers, I will be glad to pass on the info.

Computer Down

Karen asked a question:
I have a 2yo computer and recently upgraded to SBC 3 and MM3. My computer has since stopped printing to my photoprinter, and when I tried to fix it, it completely crashed. I use Vista and wonder if it is SBC3 and MM3 that are causing my problems. Should I move these to a newer computer? Has anyone else had this problem?

Dear Karen,

I know that MM3 and SBC3 use a lot of memory and could be taxing your computer.Vista is also a memory hog. Loading a lot of content to SBC is rough on the computer as well. I am not sure if they could be the cause of complete crash. There have been some insidious viruses transmitted lately through other means and a few people I know have been unwittingly affected by these.

If you tried reinstalling your printer and remembered to choose that printer when dialog box appears( I have been guilty of this myself). Then I am unable to be of much help personally. Unless of course you just need some faceless blogger to give you permission to buy yourself a new computer (I don't subsidize this kind of purchase myself, of course.)

MM3 has updates that could be necessary for restoring function to your beloved friend. In the technical realm I am less than an expert and Creative Memories does have nice talented people on the other end of the phone lines. I suggest you call them, Update Virus Protection and look into removing spyware and temp files.

Anyone with more help for Karen, I will be glad to pass on any info. I have been experiencing trouble of my own with the upgrades and fear that is what has created this lack of interest in working with it for y'all's benefit. Sorry, maybe my gumption is coming back. I did do a gorgeous macro pic and applied a mask to it the other day. I think I will add it here for my own amusement. :)
