  1. Welcome - I am very excited to see Word Art World as part of Scrap Girls. I rarely use it, but I love it buying it and have boughts lots of Jen's from other sites. So now I have the challenge of working out what I've previously bought before buying some more in the opening sale.
  2. I'm getting back into scrapbooking this year after doing no layouts last year and very few the year before. So I'm starting with my photo a day layouts and hope this is the year that I finish all the weeks. Yes I know I'm starting late, but it has taken a while to get all my effects and styles installed on my new laptop, and it is so much faster I hope I'll be able to catch up. Caption 1. Playing Code Names at our New Year’s Eve party 2. My new and old laptops 3. Thank goodness for cloud backup after I lost all my 2017 photos 4. Very empty in The Forum this morning 5. My work purchas
  3. This is the sort of thing I was thinking about. I get the searching on keyword, but at the moment I am mostly using papers for my P365 layouts and like to see them in kits. In PSE as I have an album for each collection I don't need to think about what collections and the suitable keyword to use. If I rearrange the my folders into collections it would work in a similar way as I'd see the folder names on the left hand side.
  4. I've followed the instructions in the blog post and it is currently finding everything on my EHD. I'm now curious how you all save your items. Mine are saved in folders by type of item e.g. paper, wordart and not by collection. I have albums set up in PSE organiser for each collection, but I'm now wondering is this an option Picasa or is it better to move all my items so they are by collection? If I do this how will Picasa cope (PSE organiser does not like items moving)?
  5. I'm a non kindle fan. I had a sony ereader for several years and now have a Kobo, which is great (I also have a samsung tablet but read books on my kobo or my android phone). One of the features I love about my Kobo Aura is it is compatible with Pocket so I can save webpages on my computer and they are downloaded to my Kobo for offline reading. When deciding think about what you expect to read as that will narrow down your choices, for example if you want to read pdfs with graphics you probably want a tablet type as graphics are not always pretty on black and white eink library books avo
  6. I'm the same, this is my third year and I think the last two years I hadn't done my first two layouts by this point. It feels good doesn't it?
  7. I've been trialling Crashplan as I like the idea alot, but it will take about a year to do the initial backup so seemed a bit pointless. I also found the software slowed my laptop down a lot. I read somewhere that data doesn't really exist unless it is saved in two places, and I really like that it reminds me that backups are important (that and almost losing all my SG supplies a year ago due to EHD failure). My current back up is: * windows file history copies documents to EHD when it is plugged in * cobian backup runs weekly incremental backup to EHD of documents, downloads, emails
  8. I've thought of doing something similar, particulalry with brushes and wordart. The closest I got was starting something in OneNote, but that was so long ago I don't know if I can find the file anymore
  9. This is interesting as I've disliked it when I've tried in the past, but it is on my list to try again. I currently use PSE organiser for my photos and scrap supplies and it is annoying having to switch catalogues when I search for something, so I would like to have one in PSE and one in Picasa.
  10. I really like this layout with no border it really concentrates on the photographs
  11. Here are the others I've uploaded tonight which brings me up to date - I think that is the first time I've been able to say that since I started in 2013! http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/image/156157-project-life-2015-week-2/ http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/image/156158-project-life-2015-week-3/ http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/image/156161-project-life-2015-week-4/ http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/image/156162-project-life-2015-week-5/
