Welcome to our Mad March Memories Blog Hop! Thanks for stopping by! I have some fun stuff to share with you so let's get right to it shall we?
(if you've found this out by chance and would like to participate in the Blog Hop just click HERE to take you to the beginning!)
First I have a little tip to share for those PSE users AND a FREEBIE! Who doesn't like those right?
So have you discovered the Custom Shape Tool yet? Although I discovered digital scrapbooking two years ago, I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to the many tools of PSE! I was amazed to see all the fun custom shapes you can add to your pages!
Below I created a layout using some of the shapes provided in PSE. I found these fun check marks and adorable frog using this tool! Here's how you do it:
Go to the rectangle shape on the side panel of PSE. Right click and find the heart - or custom shape tool. Choose this.
Now go to the top of your panel and click on the "SHAPE" box (see arrow in photo):
I also circled the frog and check mark shapes so you can see where I found them!
When using the shapes, I'd advise creating a new layer so you can move them and re-colour as you'd like. I hope I've inspired some of you to have fun with this tool! I know I have!
And as a 'thank you' for stopping by I have created a layered template FREEBIE out of my layout if you would like to play. :) This template could obviously apply to the children in your life, but I think it would also be cute to do a doggie or cat layout too! :) And don't forget there are adorable pet shapes in the custom shape tool as well! Have fun!
