I can't wait to brainstorm how to use my alphas! I have loads and seem to forget about them! This is going to be a blast!

I'm really looking forward to figuring out all kinds of ways to use alpha's. Hope lots of people will join us! :)

I am so excited about this. I love alphas but never use them other than a first letter of a title or something! LOL I am in an alpha rut!!!

I really want to come to this one. I am hoping, hoping, hoping I don't forget it! Usually I am on SG during the day, and then I come back on around 10 or 11 and realize I missed a crop I wanted to go to and get so mad!
I am trying to send myself memory vibes right now. I hope it works!

This really sounds like fun. I have been using my alphas a little more since I decided to make up the word elements with them in PS, get them evenly spaced and in the positions I want them, then flatten them and move them over to my page as a group instead of having the letters all in idividual layers. Then I can size them to how I want them. It sure is easier to work with groups of words instead of individual letters all the time. I found this works great if you need to recolor the alphas too.

Maybe I will find an even better solution here at the chat-I love to collect alphas and just don't use them as much as I should because I am pretty much a lazy scrapper I guess.

Hi Dee. To use Outlook are you talking about the calendar or the email? Do you manually set it up or is there an easier way to link to it from the SG calendar? Hope this makes sense. Thanks

We don't have a way to export calendar items to outlook or other calendars from the SG site.

What I do is view the SG calendar in week view and copy>paste each event into my Outlook Calendar. I then double click on it and set the reminder for that morning. When the reminder comes up in the morning I snooze it till 1 hour before the event.

I don't think Outlook Express has a Calendar option, I use regular Outlook for my email. You can also set these type of reminders in AIM, AOL, Yahoo and Gmail. These calendars send an email to you to remind.

Let me know if you still have questions.

I guess I should really play around a lot more in Outlook than I do. I didn't know I could use it for timers.
