CoffeeShop Christmas Patterns for Digital Paper!


Here are 37 original CoffeeShop Christmas patterns for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. These tiny samples do not do an adequate job of representing the actual patterns! They are much nicer full-sized. These can be used to make digital (or real) paper. Just load them into your program (for Elements loading instructions see here: http://www.alibony.com/pse/043008patterns-load.html , this is very easy compared to loading actions in PSE; to load them in Photoshop see here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/photoshopsupport/discuss/72157600482676014/?search=patterns+loading ).

To use your custom patterns, open up a new document, select your paint bucket tool, put it in pattern mode instead of foreground mode (top menu), select your pattern from the pull-down menu (make sure you have loaded your CoffeeShop Christmas Patterns!), and then click on your document. Instant custom digital paper! Great for blogs, greeting cards, storyboards, or anywhere you want to add some Christmas spirit.
Next week I will have a tutorial showing you how to make your own custom patterns and turn them into a gorgeous Christmas card.

Hi Rita!
Quick question/issue - when I click to download the patterns it takes me to mediafire & says that there are 0 items to display...What am I doing wrong?

Hello,
I am very new to Photoshop Elements. I loaded the actions and they work...but I can't seem to get your images to show on the button selections. I still show the apple that was originally there. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong. Thank you so much.

Hi Rita, did you have some 5x7 Christmas card templates created? I thought I saw a post for downloading in my reader, but can't locate them on your blog!
