Christmas layered paper templates

Christmas layered paper templates is a set of overlays featuring traditional Christmas motifs to help you create your own, customized digital papers. As you can see, we included very classic Christmas designs such as Christmas trees, beautiful poinsettias, holly berries, mistletoe patterns, a very candy-cane-like diagonal line pattern and a Christmas ornament pattern. All you have to do is to edit these PSD layered files in Photoshop and then you can customize each of the layers changing colors, adding texture, or clipping a glitter texture. The great thing about these overlays is that next year you can use them again, just choose a different color palette and you will get a completely new design.

Six Christmas patterns included in this overlay set!

Super easy to use templates

Once you open the layered template in Photoshop you will now be able to see all the layers. Each color shown in preview is a different layer you can customize!

Position your cursor on the layer you want to edit and double click to open the layer style dialog. The changes you’ll be able to make are basically color and texture.

If you want to change the color of a layer, check “Color Overlay” and then pick the color you wish to apply.

To add a texture, check “Pattern Overlay”, then select the pattern you want to apply and set the blending mode to “Soft Light” just as shown in the picture below.

Another easy way to customize the overlays would be to apply a glitter style. Just select the layer you want to change and click once on the style you want to apply. Here I applied some glitter to the star.

Once you are happy with the results, you can go ahead and rasterize and merge all the layers to flatten the artwork.

As you can see, paper templates are a great investment since you can get a lot of different designs from the same overlay set, I hope you will find these designs useful!

Handmade card technique

Here is a clever handmade card technique! I really love this card made by Lynda and the super easy technique she used to quickly add detail to this girl’s lovely dress.

She first printed the digital stamp onto white card stock paper and painted the hair, face and body with Copic markers. She also printed a second image of this girl onto a patterned scrapbook paper from the set French garden, then she simply fussy cut the dress from the pattern paper and layered it onto the original image, that way you will save a lot of time since you are using a pre-made pattern instead of painting the dress yourself.

4th of July free printable cupcake toppers.

Hi there sugar pies! Just wanted to let you know that I created this 4th of July free printable cupcake toppers set for Mygrafico Party Impressions Blog some time ago, but I didn’t have the freebie posted on this blog. I just updated it so I wanted to share it with you before Independence Day is gone!

This free sample features a 2 x 2 inch cupcake in red, blue and white. These cupcake toppers can be cut out with a 2 inch scallop punch and used as cupcake wrappers, envelope seals and even as cute little round gift tags.

How to use our free printable cupcake toppers

Print the provided JPEG or the PDF file on photo paper or good quality cardstock and cut the images out using a 2 inch scallop border punch. Then you can just mount them on lollipop sticks. I wanted to add some more detail, so I created a rosette in matching tissue paper, secured it to the lollipop stick with a glue dot and then I simply glued the cupcake topper on top.

I hope you like this freebie!

Thank you and happy 4th of July!!
