Good morning SCT fans! Nicole here again today with another installment of our Designed series. Today, I will share with you how you can easily create your own Minc-able items for your scrapbook pages!

I created this free printable using an older SCT digital cut file that I created a few years back for the blog. I simply opened the .png version of the file into a Word document and printed each image in my laser printer. They key is that you need to use a laser printer – or photocopy the printed image on a photocopier and you are ready to go!

Here are the images I used:

I trimmed out some patterned paper and ran that through my laser printer, printing each of the images in black ink onto the patterned paper using the print and cut function in my Silhouette software. I was also able to cut out an offset of the title BOO so that I could Minc that up too!

I ran each of my printed items through my handy Minc machine and voila! Perfect shiny, and custom made elements for my scrapbook page! The shimmer behind my title adds just the right amount of sparkle and how cute is that foiled Jack-o-Lantern face!

The minc-abilities are almost endless! I love that I can take a simple image and add a little pizzazz on my own using my Minc machine !
