A bit of Digital Fun!

I am home but having a bit of trouble getting back into the swing of things - long drives take a lot out of me and I was feeling a bit under the weather today. I thought I'd show you something I've been experimenting with. I have been turning some of my Cricut designs into elements I can use in my digital scrapping.

You may remember this medallion from the chipboard album posts. I made it from a shape on the Home Accents cartridge - here is a LINK to the original post.

I used my Creative Memories StoryBook Plus software (which is a fantastic digital scrapping program) and turned a photo of the cut into an element that I can use in my digital layouts, cards and hybrid projects. I can resize the design, change the color(s), fill it with various digital papers, layer it with other shapes - the possibilities are endless!

In this image you can see three of the shapes grouped, resized and filled with various gradients and colors, rotated and shadowed.

Here is one more example. Below is a photo of a part of the bubbly background made from Mini Monograms (here is a LINK to the original post for this design).

Below you can see some background paper I created using this design.

I plan to use these for lots of projects - if you have questions on the specifics of how to do this or about the software just send me a note. The creative possibilities when you combine these two programs are truly amazing!
