In Topic: E-Reader Recommendations Please

I have a Nook HD+, and love it!  Great screen resolution and reading font choices plus color (I use sepia most of the time.)  I read library books on it all the time, using OverDrive application.

 

The only problem is that it's also a tablet, and I can let myself get distracted with so much else.  :D

I know my local-ish scrapbook store offers classes and that people who try them and go to the classes adore them! I have personally not allowed myself to try them, b/c that would be another expensive addiction. :giggle_bear:

 

I'm right there with you, Cheri.  Same for other art & scrapping supplies.

In Topic: Just Purchased The Damask Templates- How To Change Color?

03 January 2015 - 02:52 PM

I am wondering why you were charged for the software.  Microsoft Digital Image Pro was the successor to "Picture it!" and I'm pretty sure they're both long since discontinued.  Did you buy it "used" or as a transfer? 

 

If you don't have a digital image manipulation program, you can get some nice effects in Powerpoint, since you may have MSOffice,  I opened Powerpoint, chose a "blank slide template."  Dragged my damask paper in, and then used picture format to tone it gold, then add a gradient overlay.  Good luck, and welcome to Scrap Girls!
