1.  Open up Scrippy and click on new.

2.  Insert a background.  Use the graphic brown4.jpg.  This is not supposed to scroll.  But at the bottom where it says transparency 0, change this to a 1.

3.  Insert a positioned container.

4.  Insert under the previous container, another one.

5.  Under the second positioned container, insert a positioned scroll as shown.  The graphic to be used is design4.gif.  Settings are as follows:  under layout choose vertical, scroll direction is up.  Pixels per second is 50 and per move is 1.  Check Fast Scroll.  Position is centered.  Space between is 500 and starting position is 250.

6.  Insert another positioned scroll.  Everything is the same as in #5 except that the scroll direction should be set to down instead of up.

7.  Click on the 'first' positioned container and insert another one.  

8.  Next insert two more positioned scrolls under the newest positioned container.  The graphic to be used will always be design4.gif.  Settings are as follows.  For the first positioned scroll:  Vertical - down - 50 pixels - 1 pixel and fast scroll checked.  Position centered.  Space between is 500 and starting position is MINUS 250.  The second scroll is exactly the same except the scroll position is UP.

9. Click on the first positioned container again and insert another positioned container.  The settings are as follows:

10.  Insert two positioned scrolls under this last container.  Settings for the first one is as follows:  horizontal - left - pixels per second 50 - pixels per move 1 - fast scroll - position=center, space between is 500 and starting position is 250.  Settings for the second scroll are the exact same except this one scrolls from the right.

11.  Click again on the first positioned container and insert another one.  The settings are as follows:

12.  Under this last container, insert two more positioned scrolls.  The settings are as follows for the first one:  Horizontal, Scroll Direction=Right, 50 pixels per second and 1 pixel per move, fast scroll.  Position is centered.  Space between is 500 and starting position is MINUS 250.  For the second positioned scroll everything remains the same but make this one scroll from the LEFT.





13.    Now click again on the very first positioned container and insert three more positioned containers.  Under each one of these insert a frame.  Each positioned container is centered.  The first one needs a size of 540 for both horizontal and vertical, the second 520 and the third 500.  Make frame #1 a double, size 10 and check place over background.  The color is 152-152-88.  For frame #2 make it solid, 1 pixel wide and use the same color as before.  For frame #3, set it to be 6 pixels wide, style of double and check place over background.  Use the same color for all three frames.

14.  Next we will insert the message area.  The margins are as follows:  Top 640, left and right are 100 each and the bottom is set at 20.

15.  Insert a sound.  You can use the one provided or one of your choosing.

16.  Insert a loading message.  Type in text you want or insert a graphic.

17.  The last thing to do is to insert a ticker.

 

CONGRATULATIONS!  YOU'RE DONE!

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and that your stationery looks great!  After you have done this one, why not find two images and make your own!  Make each image a gif with a transparent background and mirror it for left and right.  Have fun with it!
