iTop Cut File and Tips

Still trying to figure out how to place my photos here, aarrgh! Well, here is another cut file to share. It is really just a shape from Accent Essentials that has the measurements of the iTop template for the three sizes of brads they offer. In the picture you will see my Cricut Cuts (in blue) and the iTop cuts (in pink) that came with my kit. The AE cut has more cogs, but it works great! So, if you have been looking for an excuse to buy the Accent Essential Cartridge, now you have one!

Some other tips when using the iTop:

1) Spritz your cut paper before assembly with the iTop. You will get a much more professional looking brad or button with little to no pleats on the side. If you have seen the video that came with your iTop, you know what I mean.

2) You can get an embossed look for your brads if you use white core card stock. Simply emboss the cardstock and sand, then use the iTop. Your raised image will flatten out, but since you sanded you will still see the pattern. Below I have included a brad I made with my Provo Craft Swiss Dot folder. Love Swiss Dot!


  1. to move your pictures, hilight the text, then click and drag. Just keep moving them till you have them where you want. Between paragraphs is easiest. I think the blank choice is where you want it to be next to words instead of center, right, or left. Good luck.

  2. Thank you so much for this Freebie. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Hands Scrapbook Freebies Search List, under the Elements post on Aug. 04, 2009. Thanks again.
