Play with your digital stamps…

Hi there Oddies! Åsa here today showing some tips and tricks.

I love to do ‘head shots’ with my digital images.
And Im going to show you some tips on how I edit them before I print them. Just to get that perfect size for my dies.

I usually use Word when Im printing out my images and for this tutorial I’m using Sway Mae digital stamp from Some Odd Girl

  1

 Start by select and insert your digistamp.

2
Right click on the image and select ‘Edit size and position’.

3
Choose the last one, now you can move around the image as you like.

4
Im going to use a round die to cut out the image, so I choose to insert a cirle.

5
I have measured the size of my circle die, so I know how much space I need.
So I change the size on the inserted circle the same as my die.

6
Now I move the digi in to the circle, approximately where I want it,

and then size it up/down to make it fit nicely in the circle.

7
Then I choose to Crop the image…

8
…so that only the head fits in the circle.

9
Now I just delete the circle and hit the Print button.

Easy peasy – you got the image in the right size!

And here comes the finished card:

Good Luck and have fun playing with your digis!

  3. Wow that’s great!

    You’ve explained it so well that I think even a technical numpty like me could do it!

  4. Great info. But I get stuck when the circle comes out & I can’t crop it neither. The circle comes out blue. Can you help thx 🙂

  6. Thanks so much, this is a great tutorial!!

  7. Thanks for the tutorial. I will definitely be trying this. Love your card.

  8. I can’t get the circle to be transparent so that I can see the image through it. Is there a secret to this? I know how to do that in Publisher…but not in Word.

  9. This is such a great tutorial. I can’t wait to try this. I love your card! I am so fond of pinks and browns together. Thanks for sharing

  10. Hi girls! Glad you liked it! 🙂

    Noemi & Deanna: if your circle is all blue (or filled with any other colour) you need to change the settings of the filling under the command “Shape Fill” (the symbol looks like a bucket of paint). Change it to “No filling”. Now your circle is transparent.
    Now you can go up in the right corner and Crop your circle (see the tutorial), just write in your numbers of the size on your die (the inside messure).

    Good Look! And hope it works! 🙂 🙂

  11. Awesome tutorial! Thanks for sharing and I will definitely be using this!

  12. Thanks for the tutorial! Once I figured out no fill color, it all fell into place!

  13. Thanks Odd Girl,

    I will be looking forward to trying this out! I too like your card.

  14. This was great. Now I have a lot more things I can do with my digital images. And I can make sure all I want to fit in the shape is there instead of guessing. Thank you so much for the share.

  15. Thanks! I can’t wait to try this out!
