Wow - your biggest mistake so far is the scolding. Unless you standing right there exactly when she does the potty thing in the house you can just forget about a reaction on your part because she won't have a clue why your are scolding her. Dogs live in the moment! 30 seconds ago doesn't mean anything. One thing to consider is that she is,after all, still a puppy! I'm thinking that there is something about the outside potty area that she just doesn't like. Have you considered making a change there? You have to convince her that going potty outside is a terrific thing - that will take positive talk (if you show frustration she will pick up on it and your job will become more difficult) and rewards.
I'm sure you will be getting many more responses in the meantime patience; it will happen eventually.
