Microsoft Clip Art by Allison Fillo and How to use with your Pazzles

For all you Pazzles Clip Art junkies I found a great new tutorial about Microsoft Clip Art (WMF) on this wonderful blog! . And here is the PDF file of her informative tutorial. Now I will add a little bit extra of how to get that image in WMF/Windows Meta file into your Pazzles software. Once I have the WMF file just the way I want it, I copy the file and paste it into my Adobe Illustrator CS2. Then resave as an AI version 8 file. Then I open my Pazzles software and IMPORT an AI file. It comes in perfectly.

Another way to use that WMF file you created with Allison's tutorial is to just print the Clip Art and then acquire/scan it into your Pazzles software to vectorize or trace. Here is a picture of a couple of clip arts I did this morning.

If you like them just click the following link:WPC file to download into your Pazzles software. Let me know if this does not work for you and I will send the file to you.
Happy Stamping and Cutting!

Thanks for the shout-out. I use Illustrator chiefly myself (esp. for my job) so this was a nice intro for my readers who are likely to have Word but not Illustrator. Cheers!
