A Tip

DON'T stick your finger in your eye, it burns. BWAHAHAHA, well that's what I always say when asked for a tip. Gratuity is earned.

But the tip I wanted to share has actually got to do with scrapping. Have you ever wanted to just cut out a bit of an element so that the bottom layer sticks out and you have the teeniest gap between the two? Well here's an easy way to overcome that problem. Especially for those that have to use a mouse and don't have as fine control as with a pen and tablet.

Place your element in the top layer, the item that you want to show through in the middle layer and a copy of your top layer in the 3rd and bottom layer. Whatever you "over" crop won't show as your bottom layer will be intact. Hope you found this tip helpfull.

Today I have 2 more flowers to match my orchids from a few posts ago. There are no drop shadows on the actual elements and the paper is not included. Here's the preview

Have a great day.
