Layered Quick Pages

TDD_TDF11_TEAM_LayeredQPsPreview

There is a little extra gift included in this month’s Digi Files in honor of our 1 year birthday celebration. The team members all worked their digital magic to come up with these unique and creative LAYERED quick pages. These quick pages are easy to customize and change around for a variety of uses, and like everything else in this month’s amazing digi files collection, they are only available through the end of tomorrow, so hurry and pick them up before they are gone!

Most quick pages are sold as flattened images that can’t be changed around at all, so these are very unique. I (Katie) thought it would be fun to show you a little more about how the layered quick pages works.

I love the quick page that Amy Wolff made for the files.

I was excited to use this same layered quick page for a layout about the day my daughter was born. I opened up the file in my Photoshop Elements program.

I went through my stack of layers on the right side and turned off the snowflakes, winter brads, and winter title. All you have to do is click on the little “eye” icon to do this. Then I had a more basic page design to work with.

I wanted to keep the original kraft paper, tag, brackets and frames that were all part of Amy’s original page made using Gina Cabrera’s Snow Day kit from this month’s files.

I also looked through some of the other kits included in the files and found a wonderful word art title in Danielle’s Altered 365 kit and the perfect pink paper in Paislee Press’ Once kit.

I added the word art as a new top layer (by dragging it right onto the page from it’s file). I also placed the pink paper above the current background paper and then used the CTRL + G (ctrl+alt+g in CS) function to merge the 2 layers together. Suddenly, I had an entirely new quick page to add my own photos and journaling to!

Katie remember

Don’t you just love how easy that was? I know it made me pretty happy. 🙂
