The April 2012 New Stamps Flipbook!

I still can't believe I've accomplished this!
- this is just a photo of the cover, don't click it to make it work, because it's not very smart..... ;-)

I have admired flipbooks I've seen online and wished I could make them.  I've found sites that can make and host them for you, but they're out of my league, I'm afraid.  Somehow I found this software, which is an Adobe Dreamweaver extension, at a fraction of the cost.  The trouble was to figure out how to use it!!! It's html and two xml files plus Flash. I know nothing about Flash and what the heck is xml???  I felt like Pooh Bear at first (a bear of very little brain...) The instructions are written for someone who knows what they're doing....
I would have loved to put the flipbook here on my blog, but it requires a handful of files that have to "talk" to each other in order to make it work.  And that's before you even start adding the photos. So here is the front cover.
Just click on this link to see it online!

Thanks for looking!


  1. So very cool. The best I've seen anywhere. Love how I can see the 'real' size of the stamp. Love how I can see it 'in use'. It loaded quickly and worked magnificently. Way to go girl!

  2. fabulous. Love it. Works so nicely and love all the images and cards within.

  3. Great job, Suzanne! Life long learning is what it is all about!

  4. It is completely fabulous! Just love it...

  5. You can import these amazing stamps into flip page software to create a turning page flipbook. It would be cool!

  6. Love it!Great sound effects, too!
