Extracting Pocket Cards from Digital Papers

Hello Winter digital scrapbook layout by designer Rachael Sheedy featuring the Hello Winter collection by Echo Park Paper available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply

Hello! Rachael here today, with a layout featuring Echo Park’s beautiful Hello Winter kit. While working with this kit, I decided I wanted to use some of the pocket cards featured in one of the background papers. This is a super easy process that makes your background paper stash even more usable and versatile.

3A_Hello Winter

To extract the “winter sweater” card, I started by selecting the rectangle marquee tool.

RS_Hello-Winter-2

Once this tool is active, change the “style” setting from Normal to Fixed Size. Since pocket cards are generally 3×4 (inches) or 4×6, it’s usually pretty easy to determine which size you need to select. Note the size of the card you want to select, and then enter your dimensions into the width and height fields.

RS_Hello-Winter-3

Once the size values have been entered, all you have to do is double-check that the paper layer is the active layer in your layers palette, and then click down with your cursor in the upper left-hand corner of the card you wish to select. Photoshop will automatically determine the selection area based on the values you entered.

RS_Hello-Winter-4

Some cards may be slightly larger or smaller than the 3×4 or 4×6 dimensions, so feel free to deselect the selection and tweak the values as you prefer. Once you are happy with the selection size, just click Ctrl+J (Windows) or Cmd+J (Mac) to copy your selection to a new layer. Repeat the process for any other cards you’d like to extract, adjusting the values as needed.

RS_Hello-Winter-5

RS_Hello-Winter-6

Once you are finished extracting cards, you can turn off the background paper layer or delete it altogether. I continued to use the marquee tool on a new, blank layer, filling the selection with the foreground color and clipping a background paper to the new layer. I did this a few times to create several 3×4 cards, and used this as the primary design element in this layout.

I hope this layout inspires you to try extracting your own pocket cards from digital papers!

2016 Perpetual Planner

Hi there! My name is Tya Smith and this is my very first blog post as a new member of the Snap Click Supply Design team and I am so happy to be here! I am excited to share with you today this really fun and easy to put together perpetual planner. I don’t know about you but as soon as the New Year comes around, my thoughts turn to setting organization goals for the upcoming year. One of the areas that I really want to focus on this year is having a plan for my memory keeping and this planner was an easy solution to get me on the right track to stay organized.

I started with the Life Planner templates from Lori Whitlock. They were just what I needed to get my ideas down for planning out my pages. I loved how there is a spot to sketch out my layout and also lines next to each date for a little journaling about what happened that day.

The templates come as a PDF file so I opened up Week 1 and got to work.

I used the adorable Typeset Collection by Basic Grey for the papers and elements on my pages. There are so many darling shapes and elements that were perfect for my planner.

I started with a letter sized document and then began dragging and dropping papers and elements into the document to make my page. Here is Week 1:

I also designed a cover to go on the front page of my planner. I am going to use a 3 ring binder and page protectors to put the pages in. These will be easy to pull in and out and edit when I need to by using this method.

Hopefully by utilizing this method I will be able to keep on track and plan my pocket scrapbook layouts for the 2016 year. Hopefully I have inspired you to create this fun and easy planner for your own use. With a few simple files and a cute binder- you too can have a cute planner of your own. Thank you so much for stopping by!
