Hmm. I never really know WHERE I'm going to take you during a speed scrap, and tonight is no different. :D I'm preparing for DS's birthday and busy with digiscrap stuff, too.

I think we're going to work with white space tonight. 1-3 photos I think.

That sucks. Always drives me crazy how you lose evewrything if you don't save, but then when you do save you lose the ability to step backward...needless to say I usually go with the not saving.

Knock on wood but I've never had a problem however, we are taking a trip to California tomorrow and I bought a new external hard drive to back the one I have up in case.......I freak out about the airport security devices and how they might erase all my stuff. :bump:

If you are working in PhotoShop, you can change your history options -- I think I have mine set at 20 steps and automatically create a new snap shot when saving, so that even when I save, I can go back that far

everytime my PS crashes, I have to reset that, but it has been a life saver

tbcarter2002

Gee, I believe they must be catching. I was having problems, too, but they seem to have straightened out for now.

Hmmmm.....flowers???? with this picture???? okay, if you say so LOL!

geniaBeana
10-21-2009, 05:33 PM
Which reminds me I need to back my laptop up to our server.


Step 4:

find some ribbons or stitches or strings (or all 3) and use them on your LO however they want to be placed ;) Mine talk to me :D

If flower's don't work substitution is alright. stars, round elements. I'm easy. I want it to be a layout you love. If something isn't going to work for you I'm ok with little changes.

geniaBeana
10-21-2009, 05:36 PM
BTW, I've started your participation prize, but with all the mishaps I probably won't finish it before we are done tonight :D Sometime tomorrow check your PMs.

I'm scrapping along with ya'll and haven't picked photos yet...

5. hang a tag off something

donakat
10-21-2009, 05:44 PM
Boy, it really pays to show up on time--I'm actually keeping up. Of course, I've had no dinner, and DH will come home to cold pizza, I guess.

with your history windows open, you will see the words of each step

if you have the "save the snapshot" selected, each time you save, at the very top of the history menu you will see a little thumbnail of what the page looks like when you save it

say you make 15 steps, hate it, you can scroll up and select any one of the "saved snapshots" and go back there

donakat
10-21-2009, 05:49 PM
Thanks, Liz, that's very clear. Better than just seeing the steps named.

phardy1945
10-21-2009, 05:51 PM
I am sure now I am too old to learn all these new things. I have never looked at my history, don't even know where it is. Boy, oh, boy, what a ditz I am.

geniaBeana
10-21-2009, 05:52 PM
6. add up to 5 more elements. keeping these close to the photos. cluster them, layer them around, etc.

donakat
10-21-2009, 05:53 PM
Well, Pat, if you just learn one step each time you really need to do something, you'll soon know a lot of tricks!

angel85qcca
10-21-2009, 05:53 PM
Are we supposed to have done something with the papers or are you going to tell us what to do with them?

You have an hour to make it work (anyone else watch project runway?) and upload to the speed scrap gallery and post here with a link back.
