    Default What to do with papers

    When you download a kit or freebie, where do you put the papers to give you the most flexibility? If I put them into backgrounds, I can only select them for backgrounds, not for embellishing. If I put them into paper scraps, I can't crop them. If I put them into embellishments, I find it possible, but more of a hassle to use them for backgrounds. What does everyone else do?

    Hi Christine,

    You are getting seriously addicted now!! LOL I don't put anything new into SBM except shapes. The rest I save to My Documents - My Pictures - Scrapbooking. Under Scrapbooking I save things under the Designer's name. You can also save by colors, papers, embies, etc. whatever works for you best! Then you drag things from these files into your project as you need them. I always have both SBM open and my Scrapbooking file. When I see a paper or embie I like, I just drag it onto the project and I usually import it as a picture so that I can manipulate it anyway I want.

    Hope this helps. I'm sure others will give you lots of ideas, too!

    Okay, so if they go into scraps, you can only resize, right, not crop?
