2015 Layout from Creative Kuts

2015 New Year Layout
Creative Kuts - designer
Creative Kuts Page on Facebook

  1. Paper from PixelScrapper Digitel Scrapbook
  2. 2015 title, rockets and starbursts from cut file by Creative Kuts
  3. Frames I created in Make the Cut software, saved/exported as png file and than retweaked the files in
  4. Champagne glasses  from SilhouetteAmerica Online (good luck in getting to the cut file store - the download tab is either corrupted or disabled - thankfully I have the link in my history so was able to get into the store.) *already have a membership subscription so don't feel I should have to purchase a new one under the membership purchasing tab!
  5. Snowflakes a jpeg,png and svg file from
With the background paper, I took white and used the gradient tool in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 and created the white areas on the page.  Also using I created the squares for the backshadow for placement of photos.

I took the cut file pieces of 2015, rockets and starbursts, putting them together and exported as png files which I downloaded into and retweaked the individual files so they're workable in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12.  Long method of doing the creations, but it works for me.  Videos are confusing when it comes to using some of the option/commands in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12.

Once again, when I get home I will re-do this in a standard page for scrapbook pages; or just insert photos and print out.

Thank you for stopping by, and happy crafting.

Ho Ho Ho Digital Scrapbook page Layout

Ho Ho Ho Digital Scrapbook page
Page 1

Using Adobe Photoshop Elements and the scrapbook kit from Creative Kuts I created a digital layout of Santa coming down the chimney!.  The Trees in the background from Miss Kate Cuttables (for the svg files) and for the Silhouette Studio file from SilhouetteAmerica Online.  Frames I used a cut file from the Make the Cut Library, and retweaked it for my purpose layout, adding insert for the photos.  The snowflakes are brushes from Adobe Photoshop Elements software that I scattered onto the paper background.

Once I get home, and settled back into a routine, I will create the standard, traditional scrap page for my grandchildren's scrapbook.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today.  Have a great crafting weekend.

Family Fun - Picnic and Hike at McKelligon Canyon Park

Russell Cave - using MyMemories Suite Scrapbooking software

Good morning, here in El Paso, Texas where I have been visiting for a couples months, and have 30 days to lift-off for Huntsville, Alabama  final destination - Scottsboro, Alabama.  I've used the time to create digital scrapbook layouts and this time I used the new version of MyMemories Suite Ver. 6 for this layout.  (Only drawback I found is that I could not export the template from MyMemories Suite to Photo Shop Elements 13! :-(.


I have not personally visited this Park, but we do drive by the sign indicating where to turn for Park.  I have a feeling, that for 2 old ladies, it would require too much walking!.  

I will have to admit that placing photos into the photo templates far easier to do than in Photoshop Elements - lot less steps and clicks to add the photo.  I am hoping to use this software for other scenic photos I have in my stash because of the ease of use.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and now to get ready for the day as we're going off to McClellan Park for a winter picnic and walk the two dogs.  Happy crafting to all.
