Chantalle McDaniel has a wonderful hybrid layout using some of the products from the sale kits above and other JBS supplies.  She show us step by step how she created her own cut file from the paper in our Boardwalk kit.  What a great idea Chantalle!

The speech bubble print on this Boardwalk paper inspired me to create a continuous pattern on my page. I have created a cut file from the shapes on the paper, using Photoshop and Silhouette Studio.

• Start by opening the file in Photoshop
• Using the magic wand tool, select areas that you wish to use (works best on solid fills)
• Copy the selection and past in a new document
• If the fill is white, give it a different fill colour so it will stand out in Studio
• Save your file (jpeg or png etc)

Now open Silhouette Studio

• Open the file you just created in Photoshop
• Select the area you would like to trace using the trace menu and choose ‘cut edge’
• Save your cut file and you are ready to go!

I have used a selection of papers from The Boardwalk Collection to matt the cut area.
