A bit of a Cutting Cafe Tutorial

I've had several questions regarding how to use The Cutting Cafe downloadable stamps. I have to admit I'm still learning but here's some of what I've done so far.

I used Print Shop. We have Adobe Photoshop Elements and I'm sure that would be better but until I get time to learn how to use it, it's too time consuming for me. If you have Word, that will work as well.

Here is a printout of Trust in the Lord (just one page of this huge set!) I re-use my sample papers so you may see a star image on this sample. Ignore that. Just click on the pictures to enlarge.

For my purposes, I just wanted three of the sentiments. - I thank God for you everyday, I prayed for you today, and You and your family are in my Prayers.

I highlighted the images I wanted, then simply copied and pasted them into Print Shop. From there, I could make them larger, smaller, change the color, make multiple images, etc.

Here is my finished copy ready to cut out for my projects! I am so not techy....I mean really NOT techy but this was so easy.
I will have a card using the birthday set tomorrow showing how I changed the font color. FUN!!
Thanks for stopping by and don't be afraid to experiment...that's the beauty of The Cutting Cafe!!

Blessings and Happy Downloading!!
Pin It!
