  • I tried to add nannieberrie's template - Autumn Breeze - I get the message that it is not a valid SBM file. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem.

            • UPDATE on Winning policy with MAX

              Just to let you know..

              Max says once you win a version in ANY of the Challenges you will not be eligible to win for two months. sorry...They want to give as many folks as possible a chance to win..So if you won in another challenge..you won't be able to win in this challenge. BUt ..you sure will be able to sub your name with someone else if you desire. Give someone two chances to win instead of one. Good only if that person is already a participant in this challenge.

              Also..you can SUBSTITUTE the 2.0 version with your choice of Expansion
              Or, if you already have Scrapbook MAX! 2.0, you can win your choice of one Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 Expansion pack: either "Bundle of Joy" or "Back To School" by electronic download!

              Disclaimer: No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited or taxed. Prizes must be accepted as awarded (no cash value). Electronic download delivery only. The decision of the moderator is final.

              Please don't let this discourage anyone!!
              Very excited so many folks will have a chance to win..

              Max's Karin is working up Gallery Challenge Sections and it will be available to us soon..So we can start allowing Posts to Challenges posted in that gallery to count as participation!! O2B will be happy about that!!

              Great stuff going on!! Max is working hard to get the 2.0 glitches fixed..Designers are testing now..too excited!!

              HUGS!!

Its actually such a fun way to motivate us all to really get to know the program and I have learned so much just playing around!

                    When you go to Page, Save as Image, PNG, make sure you check the box that says Make background transparent (save as Embellishment)

                    • Black Cat Embie

                      OK guys, here's a black cat for Halloween!

                      Its going to look odd when you open it, you will just see a pair of eyes! Also, when you put it in SBM, you can give it a more spooky look by playing about with Shadows!

                            • Tips and Tricks - v1 & v2

                              I love the way you can take a not so good picture (or a very bad one) and make something unique. One of my favourite things to use- Effects>Avanced.
                              By using the different effects, you can create beatiful images.In the snapshot below you can see what I mean.

                              • Tips: Fun with Paper Scraps

                                You know when you have a photo you want to scrap that has some stuff in it that is less than attractive?

                                We all know you can crop it, or perhaps hide it with a frame. But what if doing that takes away the mood of the photo or its relevance to the theme?

                                Here's a fun solution.

                                Place your photo on the page as it is.
                                Open paperscraps (CTRL + 3)
                                Choose a piece of paper that goes with your scheme or theme, click OK
                                Now lay it on top of your photo and make it exactly the same size.
                                Double click your scrap
                                Pull the transparency slider to the right until you achieve a gauze look, I stopped at 50
                                Click on custom shape and select a frame you like, I used Photoshape 0012
                                Click on invert to turn it into a frame
                                If you want to tweak the colour, go to Advanced, Adjust colour and play with the sliders until you get the right hue
                                Click OK

                                This is a nice way to keep something in the photo that dates it. For example, you may have a photo from the sixties, showing a car of that era. So you want to keep the car in but still want the focus to be on the person in the photograph.

                                Enjoy! FS xx
