Cutout Template

I put together something a bit different for you today.  I'm calling it a Cutout Template, however it's an optical illusion, nothing is really cut out.  I did not spend much time on the preview except I wanted it to display a high contrast and something far more subtle.  The file is in .psd and really to go, or .png for our friend, C from Paris, and if you use a program other than Photoshop, just line both .png files up and you'll be good to go.  I also thought I'd point out that I used a staple on one example, and a button on the other to anchor the ends.  You could however use for example, a square layered with a snowflake and silver brad as embellishments in the corner or a square, felt star and button.  I'm sure you get the idea and now continue around as many sides of your page as you wish.  Download the Cutout Border Template.  And have fun.

  7. I downloaded this because it sounds interesting, but can't figure out how to use it in My Memories software. I "lined up the 2 png files" but I must be a bit dense. I just have 2 grey lines of triangles, one light and one dark.

  8. I haven't used that software, so after lining up the 2 files included in the download... you will need to layer any paper of your choice above the first darker layer, now conform it to the template file, in phtotshop it is group with previous (crtl g), use the command for your program. Repeat the process for the lighter layer of the template. Play with the opacity of the paper that you are using to achieve the look you desire. I hope that it helps. Ashley
