Making your own cut outs or die cuts.

If you are like me, you are always looking for shortcuts to make your scrapbooking easier and more fun.

One of the things I have been using are digital images. If you do a search you can find all kinds of vintage images available at very low cost. Once I purchase them, I can then print and use them as many times as I need to. I can use them as cut outs or print them on transparencies and use them as 3D embellishments.

Here are a few examples.

You can then add glossy accents to them, glitter, or doodle on them. You can mat them on cardstock and cut them out as stamps. OR you can mat them on chipboard and make thicker die cuts out of them. Pop them up with pop adhesives. The sky is the limit and they are always available at the press of your mouse and the availability of your printer.
