Whimsie Doodles Sneak Peek!

Melyssa at Whimsie Doodles is releasing some new digistamps tomorrow and I am excited to be showing you a Sneak Peek of one of her new images today! If you come back tomorrow I will show you more of the new releases and also another project I have made for this release. As always, they are all adorable and you won't want to miss getting them!

Today's project is super easy and shows off one of the wonderful advantages that digistamps have over traditional rubber stamps. Because digistamps are electronic image files, and are printed out using your home printer, they can also be printed out on anything that can run through your printer.

For my project today I am using T-shirt Transfer paper to print on and then I am ironing it onto my project!

Here is a cute little Trick-or-Treat bag that I made using a cheap Michael's canvas bag and a digistamp from the Bits and Bites set being released tomorrow at Whimsie Doodles.

With each digistamp you purchase from Melyssa, you receive a jpg and png file. The neat thing about the png files is that no matter how you resize them, they maintain their print quality. As you can see from a closeup below, I enlarged this image from its original size of 1.9" x 2.6" to nearly four times its size at 4.09" x 5.63" and you can see how it has maintained a very clear quality without pixelating.

To add to the project I added my own text box in Microsoft Word to include the "Happy Halloween" sentiment on the bag. And I also added my own ribbon bow and button that I placed over the Skull's drawn bow for extra dimension and interest.

This adorable image called the Skull will be available tomorrow at Whimsie Doodles in the Bits & Bites Halloween digistamp set. Don't be afraid!! Be sure to get yours right away!!
