1.  Insert a background using ghost-bg1.  Non-scrolling.

2.  Insert a frame with a width of 10 pixels, color of black and check the little box where it says place over background.

3.  Insert a positioned container and set all of the edges at 15 pixels.  (Set right, left, top and bottom which are on the right side of the master scrippy.

4.  Insert a background and use the shiny-orangebg.jpg.  Non-scrolling.

5.  Insert another frame of 10 pixels and make it black.  This time do NOT check place over the background.  Non-scrolling here also.

6.  Click on insert - positioned container.  Once again, set the right, left, top and bottom edges all to 30.  This does not go under the previous container.

7.  Insert a frame of 3 pixels, inset and use the default color.

8.  Now insert another background and use the one named ghost-bg3.jpg.

9.  Insert another positioned container.  Set right, left, top and bottom edges all to 40. This does not go under the previous container.

10.  Insert an inset frame of 3 pixels using the default color.

11.  Insert another background and use the ghost-bg2.jpg.  Non-scrolling.

12.  Now insert another positioned container.   Set the left and right edges at 50 pixels.  Set the top at 275 pixels and set the bottom at 50 pixels.

13.  Next insert a frame of 10 pixels, double and use the color 255-128-0 or #FF8000.  Do not click on place over the background.

14.  Next we will insert a background called white.jpg.  This is our foggy background.  We want it to scroll up and right.  Click on fast scroll and change the pixels per second to 30.  Down at the bottom right, change the transparency to 70.

15.  Insert a message area next.  This goes all the way over to the left margin!  The left and right margins should be set to 90.  The top margin should be 285 and the bottom margin should be 60.

16.  This next part is our scrolling ghosts.  Insert a positioned container and make sure that it is set all the way over at the left margin.  To do this easily, click first on background and then click on insert/container/positioned container.  It will automatically be put over at the left side.  As always, if you put it in the wrong place you can easily drag it over.  However, lately I have been finding that there are times when your container won't come out from under another one.  If this happens to you, just delete that one and go click on background first and then insert it.  Make it a specified size of 344 for horizontal, centered and 0 distance.  For vertical set it from the top at 10 pixels and make it a specified size of 250.

Example

17.  Under the previous container insert another positioned container.  For horizontal, set position and width, center, -86 distance and same as largest container.  For the vertical set the top at 20 and a specified size of 250.  If you remember, for kaleidoscopes, we normally use the exact height of the image but not this time.

18.  Next under that container insert a positioned scroll.  Set this horizontal, right, pixels per second 80, pixels per move at 1, and fast scroll.  For the bottom portion, the position is centered which is the default and 0 which is also the default.  Space between 344 (double the width) and starting position is -172 (equal to the width).  Set the transparency at 40.  Use the graphic dc-ghost-small.gif for both of these positioned scrolls.

19.  Insert another positioned scroll.  Set the horizontal, left, 80, 1, fast scroll, the vertical space between 344, starting position -172 and set the transparency to 40.

20.  Now click on that positioned container that you put in right under the message area.  Insert another positioned container.  This should be at the bottom now.  Set position and width; center 86, size 250.  For vertical set it from the top 20 pixels and size of 250.

21.  Insert a positioned scroll.  Set the horizontal; left, pixels per  second at 80, pixels per move at 1 and fast scroll.  Space between is 344 and starting position is 172.  Transparency is 40.

22.  Insert a second positioned scroll.  Horizontal, right, 80, 1 and fast scroll.  Space between is 344 and starting position is 172.  Transparency is 40.

23.  Check your stationery now by previewing it and make sure that your ghosts are scrolling as they should be.

24.  Insert a positioned image.  This should be all the way over at the left margin.  We will use the image ghosts-dc-small.gif.  Make this image 10 from the left and 10 from the top.

25.  Next insert another positioned image.  This time you will use the graphic ghosts-dc-small-right.gif.   Set this one from the right 10 pixels and from the top 10 pixels.

26.  We will insert our first sound.  Choose the sound called 7thGuest.mid and set it to continuous play.

27.  Next insert a loading message and set it to run for 1.5 seconds.  If you wish to use the bats that I put in mine then I used bat3, bat6 and bat4.  Browse to those three animations and insert them.  Set the background color to #FF8000.  Now enter and browse to find the graphic called halloweentitle.jpg.

28.  Insert a second sound.  This will cause Scrippy to pop open a warning message.  Ignore it and say ok.  Now browse to find the wav file named evillaf.wav.

29.  Insert a ticker and put in a message, if you want!  You may have your default set to say the same thing, like I do.

PS.  I had to add this here after I viewed the example stationery.  For best effects when you do your own script like this make your main images mirror images.  That way when it meets in the middle it will look a lot better.

That's it!  Now you should have a cute little Halloween stationery to send to all of your friends.  I hope that all of these instructions were plain and easy to follow, but if not please feel free to contact me.
