Once the files were in Photoshop, I arranged them on a 12x12 layout just as Mary did. I clipped some Easter papers to some of the shapes, and applied a glitter style to the egg, the background lace, and the trim at the top of the photo frame.
Since the frame did not have shapes to clip the photos to, I created them using the rectangle tool in Photoshop. They were sized slightly larger than the openings in the frame, placed underneath the frame, and the photos were clipped to them.
Next I added some drop shadows and two elements not in the SVGCuts file but from the digital collection I used.
And there you have it, a layout that took me under an hour, and that includes the time spent converting the files and deciding what photos and paper to use.
As much as I love making things with paper, when it comes to getting layouts done, I really like going digital. And when the layout is already done for you (thank you Mary!), it's super fast!
Making your cut files do double duty as clipping masks makes buying templates unnecessary and stretches your crafting dollar!
So, what do you think? Have you already done this with your digital scrapbooking? Would you like to learn more about it? I'd love to hear, so please leave a comment!
Have a Crafty Day and a Happy Easter!
