It's here! The Paradise collection has arrived! I absolutely love the bright, bold colors of this kit, especially that pink! I had already started playing with the digital version before the paper collection hit my front doorsteps.
Today I wanted to share on how to extend your digital kits by making an overlay with a printed paper.
First open up your papers. Here I created a new document and stretched the paper to fit 12x12. Some people had concerns about the quality of the newly created 12x12 papers but I've had them printed with no quality distortion.
Next with your Magic Wand selection tool set to Quick Select, click on the white background.
Then go to Select>Similar.
Marching ants will appear. Hit delete.
You're left with this background overlay with a transparent background. Save as a .png file.
That's it, easy peasy. I usually do this with most of the papers when the kit arrives.
I used the paper for the top but on the bottom page you can see a page with the overlay.
Hope that helps you get more bang for your buck!
