If you use Craft Artist Professional and have the My Craft Studio CD "Nesting Shapes" you can add these Shapes to your Punches collection in CAP. Just put a shape on your canvas and drag it into the Punches section.
I have the Flawless Florals and Sentiment Toppers CD and found it very useful to be able to cut matching shapes from different papers.

Thank you Joyce, I'll have to see what I've got too. 
For those of us with electronic cutters, I also think we can import shapes that we have in our cutting files, so I'm going to have a play with that too. Smiley

Having a look through my MCS discs and I'm looking at the Paper Library and realising there are lots there that can be used in CA.
Especially the Paper Words options.

These days I look at ALL my digital images  (cd,s) to see what I can do with them in CAP.  That,s why I think it's such an exciting programme. It allows you to take what you,ve already got to another level.

 I have used Text letters cut out of Materials individually but hadn't thought of the Paper Words CDs Lynn. I must hunt mine out. Another thing to go on the To Do List. Smiley

MCS files are stored in a folder called my artwork in my documents. There are a couple of ways to get MCS files into CA this is one of them, go to the photo tab in the left side panel of Craft Artist/choose add and when the box pops up find my documents folder and scroll through the folders to find my artwork/ choose which file you want to open/ double click it and it will open in the left panel under photos, you can then drag it onto the page.
