I realised that I could use any of my cut file pngs to make my own Project Life cards and embellishments for personal use only. It is so easy if you have access to a laser photocopier.
1. First of all, in Photoshop separate your die cut pngs and crop them out individually if you want the item on its own card, if you want a set of embellishments, just leave them all together.
2. Open a new canvas and size it to the card you want, this one is a 3x4 and then place the png where you want it on the card, save it as a png or jpeg and print it out now if you want, but I made several and then added them to a word document before printing several on one sheet.
Here are the ones I printed off using my normal printer at home and then I took them to get laser printed - make sure if you are using them for Project Life you get them laser printed on card or, as I did on presentation paper.
4. Once you have the laser copies, switch on the Minc.
Mine came with an English plug on and heated up very quickly. I used heat setting 3, added the foil over the top of the laser printing and placed it in the carrier sheet that comes with the machine. I ran it through and that's it! Fantastic results that I am really pleased with! The possibilities are endless.
I tried words, backgrounds resized to 6x4 for a PL card, digital frames that I couloured black before printing, a digital project life card that I coloured black before printing, the ampersand and the arrows, all looking awesome! As I said the possibilities are endless!
You could type up your own text, laser copy the whole page and then foil it! Draw your own design colour it black and get it laser copied. the worst part is I ran out of foil! TFLx
