I recently read a great idea to save some money. Plus, this will help those of us that don't like our albums to be too bulky, but we like the 3D look those great embellishments give us! You can use your scanner to scan a whole bunch of embellishments at the same time. Just to keep it neat, it might be a good idea to keep same size things together. Also, be sure not to scratch the surface of your scanner. This is a great idea so now you can "reuse" all your embellishments over and over! I've scanned a bunch of mine and now I have a folder full of files with embellishments waiting to be printed out, or I can use them in my digital scrapbooking. Hope this helps some people out!
