Would you believe our heater just died? The other day I smelled something burning in the back of the house, but I thought it was the boys playing with the bathroom heater. When you turn it on the first time in the winter it always smells. It hasn't been very cold the last days so I had the heater turned off and didn't realize there was a problem.
However, yesterday the night temperature was predicted to be in the mid-20's, which is cold for this part of Texas. I went to turn on the heat and nothing happened. Last night we made a run to Target and bought everyone an electric blanket (they were on sale, excellent) and we were good to go last night. We have a call in to have our heater checked out, but it is going to be a few days. Thank goodness it is warming up this week.
So I am sitting here freezing (well, it is 59F in the house, not really freezing) and decided to offer a freebie, a new cutout. I include a layered .psd file so you can adjust all colors and also a transparent background .png for those of you who don't have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. This CutOut is great to display photos on your blog or a card. It also makes a cute "sticker" for digital scrapbooking.
It is really easy to change the colors. If you want the change the background, simply click on the background color fill layer and adjust. Do the same for the Bottom CutOut and Top CutOut layers. Delete the background layer if you want a transparent background.
You can add a texture or digital paper to the background or any of the CutOut layers. For the background, drag the digital paper or texture just above the background layer and free transform it to fit. I used my free Christmas papers for the sample above. You can add texture/paper to any of the CutOut layers, simply group it with the layer and turn off the color fill layer. You can also add photos, just group them. You can use my free Group-It Action to make it easy.
