Cutting Out Cut Outs

Hi Everyone! Hoping you are all doing well! Today, I'm going to show you how to use Cut Outs differently. Let's stretch that stash a little bit!

For my images, I'm using Liz's Totally Awesome Cut Outs. :) I am also using Pink Reptile Designs papers from Love You Beary Much.

Here is the cut out - it is placed over two patterned papers. One is only slightly patterned and the other is multiple hearts.  My Layers Palette shows the two papers and the Cut Out above them both. 


Here is what I see on my screen - one pattern and the Cut Out on top. 


Next, you will press Control and click on the Cut Out in the Layers Palette. This will make the ants go marching around the edges on the Cut Out. 


After you have the ants marching, you will choose the top pattern paper in the Layers Palette. Click delete. This will remove the paper from within the marching ants. It will look super weird, and not totally legible. That's normal. 
Here is mine: 


Now, what drastically changes it and how it appears is shadowing. I've added my usual shadows and presto - a pretty cool technique! 


If you don't like the busyness of the heart paper, you can totally switch it out to another that pleases your eye or works with your layout! Here is a pink polka dotted paper underneath. 


It's totally awesome, right?! I couldn't resist! lol! I'd love to see what you create and cut out on your layouts. Give it a try! 

Thanks for visiting!

So many fun memories made this week even though it was a pretty typical week. We did school, played outside a lot, went to our weekly school group, joined another homeschool group for gymnastics day, had a sleepover, and just had an overall fun week.

I took last week off from releasing anything new because I knew we were going to have a busy week...and I needed a break. We also took it easy on school work and enjoyed the holidays AND the nice weather. It's been unseasonably warm here and we are soaking it up.

You can see the left page above and the right page below. Now to enjoy Week 8 of 2018!

Week 5, January Calendar Review Page and Another China Page

Memory Pockets Monthly KEEN Feb 2018
This week started off kind of crazy: painting rooms and then a big trip to the audiologist. It ended pretty normal: school, library, co-op, speech, etc...

I'm still catching up on some work due to a whole day at doc appointments. Those days really put me behind. But I'm glad to say I did finish my double page spread for last week and managed to finish up my January Review page AND even put the finishing touches on a page that I had worked on a couple of weeks ago but could never find the time to finish it.

You'll see above the room re-do and below is just normal activities from the week.

And here's my finished Planner Review page. This is what I'm planning on doing with my new Planner Templates. It's more of a detailed look back on our month. I think it will be fun for the kids to look back and see what we were doing on different days.
