Digi-Stamping Paper Piecing Tutorial

Good Morning! Welcome to my first slide show tutorial. I don't own a video camera... well, that's not completely true but let's just say this was the easiest for me.

I wanted to share how to paper piece using digi-stamps. The key to this is to print all your pieces one right after another. That way you're sure to have the same size. At the very least save the document.

I start off with importing my chosen image into a word document (I use Open Office) and size it there. Then start printing. For this one, I printed my base on Vanilla card stock and then chose the paper for the pumpkin, legs/arms and then finally the stem and then printed.

I can't slow down the slideshow, but you can pause it. Hover your mouse over the images and the pause button will pop up.

Here is my finished card. I had to laugh and there are couple who know me really well to know why I am laughing at my great big bow on the side. I won't go into detail, but it is funny.

I hope you enjoyed my slide show. I am rather excited that I figured out how to do this in blogger. Whoo-hoo!!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day. Have a super weekend!

Hi Mel
This is a great tut! I always just copy it off on a 4 x 6 sheet of pattern paper. I never thought to do it this way. Thanks so much!
