Finished MTC print and cut project!

Whew, I can't believe that it has been almost a week since I've posted!  I have been putting in so many days and hours at work, I am EXHAUSTED!  Literally - I have worked every day since last Sunday, the 14th.  I have yet to get a day off since then, so crafting hasn't been happening much lately.

I was able to crank this out last night, though, and I think it turned out OK for being thrown together in literally 5 minutes!  I used a printable set from Treasure Box Designs, and how cute is she?!?!  I also got a stamp set from Scrappy Moms, and I LOVE how perfectly this picture went with the sentiment!  So, I printed her on the MTC mat at 5.5"x4.5".  Once I saw it, I knew it was too big for a card, so I had to get my brain working to figure out what I could do.  I ran to Wal Mart and got a $1.00 cheap picture frame, and used only the easel back of it to make this.  I covered the easel with a 5.5"x7.5" mat from American Crafts Merrymint pack from last year, then I used a 6.5"x8.5" piece of green, cut the square out of the middle, used an SU! lights wheel stamp, the Scrappy Mmoms stamp for the sentiment, and that was it!

I don't have a picture of it, but I also cut out extra layers of just the bear and made her dimensional.  Maybe I will try to get a picture of that later to illustrate, but basically I printed out the entire image, then adjusted the settings in MTC so it would only print and cut out the bear parts.  I then used pop dots to layer her face, arms, and feet!  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE MTC?!?!  Lol!

Ok, definitely going to try to get a picture of the dimensional aspects up, maybe with some screen shots of what I did in Make the Cut to achieve this??  Anyone think they may like to see that??  Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Oh my gosh is that cute!! I JUST got MTC this weekend, and already love it. I can't wait until I can use the print and cut feature. My printer hasn't had ink for about a year but I think it is time to splurg on it LOL! Great job!

  2. HI!

    I would LOVE to see the screen shots of how you did the print and cut. I am so happy to hear that MTC has this option now in the 3.0 beta version.

    Inky Smiles!
    PS... thanks for answering my question in the MTC forum!
