kiwiscraps swap pins

August 12, 2006


6 more sleeps til kiwiscraps!! 🙂

i’ve heard that over 300 people will be there – its going to be huge!! & even tho there are a lot of things on my to do list – i decided to make swap pins. now i’ve never made swap pins before – but they need a pin – right? so hopefully these will be OK! it seems like lots of the NZ gals are making them – are the aussies too?? hope so! 🙂

soon after i started scrapping, i purchased an epson printer (1290) & have been printing my photos at home. the results were great & things were good … until a gecko fried the printer when i was in the middle of a photography article for for keeps – now that was a major drama!! fortunately a friend loaned me a printer & helped me out of a tight spot. but it motivated me to find a back-up printer so i wouldn’t get stuck again (a 2000P for less than $300 on ebay!! gotta love a bargain!). & yes several more geckos have been fried since! they’re expensive little critters! i’m still happy with the results from my machine’s – but i’ve heard some great reviews of the R1800 (or its baby brother the R800) & the R2400. the colour these machines produce is really punchy … i would love to get one of those babies sometime soon!

anyway, i sent away my 1st order of photos for professional printing last week & can’t wait to see how they look! i use PSE3 – which doesn’t have some calibrating tools that PS has – so i’m really *hoping* my colours will be OK.

thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  3. Your pins are so cute Charleigh… I think I “heard” some of the Kiwiscraps girls at BB are making pins… but it might have been the Kiwi chicks too… sorry, no help I know!
    Who’s doing your processing for you? Let us know how it goes… always on the lookout for good processors ( or the not so good ones to avoid!LOL) Have a great time at Kiwiscraps…you must be getting close to leaving so you can make the long trek south… We want full reports with photos when you return!
