I notice that a lot of pictures in the gallery use a round scalloped backing for the photos and embellies. Where do you get them from??? My LSS in Australia don't seem to have anything like these - do you cut them yourself (if so you have more patience that I do)!!!!!
Are you talking about background paper? Photo mattes? Journaling spots? Many different manufacturers produce those items, so it's hard to say. Could you link a lo as an example so we know exactly which ones you mean?
If you have a cricut, 2 of the cartridges make a scalloped circle and square: Mini Monograms and Graphically Speaking. I use this feature of these cartridges on almost every other layout. I also have some of the Ek Success punches that they mentioned above and love those as well. Also if you have a press-type die cutting machine, they have new dies out for those that are scalloped. They are called Nestabilites...just search here in the store for them.
