  4. I just stumbled across your blog, and I love it! Thank you so much for the free tutorials, making the shapes work in Photoshop was awesome! I have an idea for another tutorial, could you share where you get the awesome graphics that you use on your chalkboards and then how you actually get them to overlay? Do you do all this in Photoshop before uploading to your blog? THANK YOU!

    1. That is a great idea. I'll put it on my to do list for tutorials! Thanks.

      Yes, I do use photoshop to put all of my graphics together. Most of the overlays are my own, but sometimes I'll use something from a free graphic scrap booking download.

      Hope that helps!

  7. If you're using photoshop it should be fairly easy, just create a new layer using the text tool. If you don't have photoshop, don't worry, I'm actually going to be putting up a tutorial that might help you with several ways to do it... So be on the lookout the next few days or so!

    1. I don't have Photoshop Elements, but if it allows you to work with layers, then definitely! :)

  9. I'm having a problem loading the png files as custom shapes. It only seems to want csh files. Is there a way to load them as custom shapes?

  10. What program are you using? Maybe try saving the shapes as the file type you need?

  11. Love your tutorials. I am a newbie looking for a user friendly photo editing software that allows you to edit into shapes as in this blog post. Do you already have to have Photoshop to use the shape element?
