Thumbs up after the move...

hope you get your mac after the move!!! and thanks for the picasa suggestion!! i have a silhouette sd (not the cameo), and i want to create digital cut files for my most frequently used stamps, but i am not sure that the online images will match the size of the stamps. will have to look into that... i was planning on just stamping/scanning them in. but there may be an easier way! i was toying with two "Recollections" brand stamp images and those did seem easy to trace and offset.. i guess it will just be a matter of verifying the size of the original stamp to the size of the digital image and making sure it's sized accordingly.

I am way more interested in doing something on the computer than in a paper binder - it just suits the way my mind works as well. I also have a Gazelle on my wishlist, and having the images already scanned in would make creating custom dies for my stamps a cinch!

For those PC users out there, try Picasa (Picasa). It's a free to download Google product. You can use it to put albums online (a good way to back up) as well. The problem is that it tries to organize every photo on your computer, but it doesn't actually MOVE or copy them or anything, it just labels them. It's easy to remove folders from it with a right click. I plan to put all my stamps in a subfolder of my current 'digital stamps' folder so I can search it all at once. It allows you to use keywords/tags and search for them. GREAT idea msdixie!
