Ok, I'm about as un-computer-savvy as they come, but I follow directions well! We just got back from a trip to St. John and I've always loved Leah's Nova Scotia page with the pictures in the title. Problem is, I don't like to "piece together" the letters around the pictures like she did. I wanted this look for a title page for my vacation album and was really excited about the new letter punches this week. Then I started playing and realized I NEEDED capital and "fatter" letters. Long story short, I did a google search to see if I could change a stamp (png file) into a punch (svg file)... and we can! I used the Letters stamp set in MDS and copied a file of each letter I needed to my desktop. Then I followed the awesome directions on this blog: http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/2008/10/27/convert-a-png-to-a...
At the end, instead of importing anything into the program she talks about, I just made a new folder in my MDS punches section and dragged the new svg files into that folder. The result is this:-) and the really cool thing is this will work with any solid stamp! A whole new world just opened up to me:-)!!!
This is awesome!!!!
I tried doing this.....got a few letters copied over, but they have little padlocks on the icon and I can't get them to show up in MDS.
