Please open your Scrippy program and then choose File/new or click on the white paper to start a new scrippy stationery.

1.  First insert a frame of 10 pixels, double style, place over the background checked, and if you are using my images, change the color to #0B3146 and set this as a custom color for later use.

2.  Insert a positioned container.  The horizontal settings are centered, 0, specified size of 300.  Vertical settings are top, 20 and specified size of 300.  This is the actual size of your kaleidoscope area.

3.  Under this container insert a top border scroll and choose one of your background tiles OR mine which is called ksbg3.jpg.  Scroll this left.  Pixels per second are 45 and pixels per move are 300.  Smooth scroll.  Overlap with next object and place over background should both be checked.  Transparency 0, space between is 300 and starting position is 0.

4.  Insert another top border scroll and if using my images use ksbg5.jpg.  Scroll this left.  Pixels per second are 45 and pixels per move is 300.  Smooth scroll is checked.  Place over background and overlap with next object are both checked.  Transparency 0, space between is 300 and starting position is 300.  These two backgrounds will change from one to the other and back again repeatedly.

5.  Click on Insert/Container/Positioned Container and insert it.  This goes under the first one and you don't have to click on it first.  It should automatically go beneath it.  Both horizontal and vertical settings are centered and zero, no changes should be necessary.  Same as largest image should be checked for both so this is something you need to change.

6.  Insert a top border scroll and choose your circle or use mine called circle.gif.  This is set to scroll left, 5 pixels per second and 62 pixels per move.  Smooth scroll.  Overlap with next object and place over background should be checked.  Transparency is 0.  Space between is 62.  Starting position is 0.

7.  Insert a second top border scroll and choose square.gif.  Scroll is left, 5 pixels per second and 62 pixels per move.  Overlap with next object and place over background are checked.  Transparency 0.  Space between is 62 and starting position is 62.  As 62 is the width of the images in question that is why this number is used.

8.  Click on the second positioned container and insert another one.  Horizontal is left, 0 and size of 150.  Vertical is top, 0 and size of 150.

9.  Insert a background and use the graphic inside-left-top.gif.  Scroll this up+left, smooth scroll.  Pixels per second is 50 and pixels per move is 1.  Auto size image to window:  Set this to tile.  Under Advanced options check layer with other objects.  Everything under that is zero.

10.  Insert a second background and use the graphic outside-left-top.gif.  Scroll this down+right and everything else is the same as on #9.

11.  Click on the second positioned container once more and insert another positioned container.  Horizontal is left, 0 and size of 150.  Vertical is bottom, 0 and size of 150.

12.  Insert a background and use the graphic inside-left-bottom.gif.  Scroll this one down+left and all other settings are as in #9.

13.  Insert a second background and use the graphic outside-left-bottom.  Scroll this one up+right.  Everything else is set as in #9.

14.  Click on the second positioned container and again insert another one.  The horizontal settings are right, 0 and size of 150.  Vertical is top, 0 and size of 150.

15.  Under this container we will insert two more backgrounds.  In the first one use the graphic called inside-right-top and scroll this up+right.  Make sure the rest of the settings are the same as in #9.  For the second background use the graphic called outside-right-top and scroll this down+left.  Set everything else as in #9.

16.  We need to insert one more positioned container under the first one.  Set this right, 0 and size of 150 for horizontal.  Set this bottom, 0 and 150 for the vertical.

17.  Insert two more backgrounds.  For the first one, use inside-right-bottom.  Scroll this one down+right and all other settings as in #9.

18.  The second background uses the graphic called outside-right-bottom and it is scrolled up+left.  All other settings as in #9.

19.  Preview your stationery and make sure that the kaleidoscope works as it should and that the two backgrounds and the two small images change as they should.  Here is an image of what you should have at this point.

Where We Are

20.  Insert a frame and make sure that this is all the way over to the left margin of your master scrippy.  Groove and 4 pixels, same color as before.

21.  Now insert a background and make sure that this is all the way over to the left margin also.  Use the graphic ksbg2.jpg.  This is the main background that is outside of your kaleidoscope.

22.  Insert sound, a ticker and a loading message!

23.  Lastly, insert a positioned container all the way over to the left margin.  Set left and right margins to 80 each.  Set the top at 350 and the bottom at 50.  Insert a frame, 4 pixels and inset and use the same dark color as before.  Now insert a background.  Here I used ksbg3.jpg.

24.  Insert a message area and make sure that it is placed to the left and not under the previous container.  The right and left margins should be set at 90.  The top margin is 365 and the bottom margin is 60.  This ensures that your message, although it will show up inside of the box we made, will be an expanding message.

25.  Next insert your sound and use the file faq.mid.  Set it to continuous play.

CONGRATULATIONS!  YOU'RE DONE!
