Not too long ago, Kim from Cheap Chic Home did a post on clock face Cd's click here. I have to admit I got a little giddy when I saw her post. I am slightly obsessed with vintage clock faces, and I buy old clocks and sell a lot of them at my space at Aubergine Emporium. I sell them as "prop value only" as so many of them plum don't work anymore or I don't want to warranty that they will work. Nonetheless, there is something about the old faces that I find charming and reminiscent of times gone by. Everything today is digital! I guess other people find them to be equally as charming as I do since I sell every one I bring in.
So you are probably asking why am I copying Kim's idea, and rather blatantly I might add, is because I got everything I needed from her post, but I had a slight problem with the images, and if anyone else had this problem, I thought I would share how I remedied it. I downloaded the images from Kim's post, and on my screen they looked fine. When I went to print them, the sides were cut off and I no longer had my circle. I simply went into my Word Pad on the computer, or whatever word processing system your computer comes with, and I opened a new file and labeled it. I then went to the top and clicked on the picture icon. It directed me to insert "picture from file." I searched my pictures and found the image and imported that. Once it was in my document, I right clicked on the image and a box appeared around the image. I put my cursor on the little boxes around the image and adjusted the image in and out until it was the perfect size. How did I know it was the perfect size? I simply held the cd up to the screen and voila. Perfecto! I did this with each image, saved each file, and now I can set up my printing press and do a ton of these. I love them scattered about. Kim has used them in a couple of her vignettes since her post. Thanks, Kim.
Although I was sure my image was the "perfect size" I outlined my Cd's with black permanent marker in case I missed a tad attaching them to the cd. I used re-positional spray glue. Easy as pie. I am sure Kim had a link to the original blogger that was kind enough to share the images, but I will include the link here as well click here.
