Possible to create a printable cut template?

Postby Wyzkastly » Fri Jul 20, 2018 1:02 pm

Hi! I'm not sure what the best term to use for what I'm searching for, so I'm hoping someone can help me out.

What im looking to do, is have a sort of 'template' that I can reuse and update/change the design, that way each page is uniform, and only one cut file is needed.

For example, I'll have 4 squares and 2 circles that I'll be always cutting, but my printed file will have each shape a different pattern, and the week after, a whole new set of colours/patterns. These patterns will often come from digital paper.

So my question is, is it possible to create that "shapes template" and fill it in differently each week? What about with text?

Thank you!

Is that a typo, or is there really something called "digital paper"? If so, what is it?

Ooohh, there is such a thing!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_paper

Cool!
