Hello all! Tracy here with another installment of gallery standouts. Let's get right to it!

First up is this fantastic layout by Lizzy - check out the journaling on the text path all the way around the photos!

Next is this terrific layout by froggie. LOVE the shadow work - take a look at those leaves!

And last but not least, I love this multi photo layout by scrappycath and how well they're integrated into the overall design.

So How do you use those torn edges?

Here's a simple way to use the tears. The screenshots are from PSE 9. I am not "tearing" the dark orange paper...it's my background (and I needed you to be able to see the tear)

Step 1. Place the tear on a 12x12 file. Make sure it goes all the way to the top & bottom (they are slightly longer than 12 inches, so this shouldn't be difficult.)

Step 2. Use the magic wand to select the empty space on the right side of the tear.

Step 3:  To make sure the paper goes all the way to the tear, we need to make the selection a tiny bit bigger.  Under Select>Modify>Expand...

...and choose 2 pixels

Step 4: We need to make a new layer UNDER the tear. Make sure the bottom layer is selected, then click on the "new layer" icon in the layers palette (see the tiny dialog box in the very bottom right corner...click there)

Step 5: Now fill the selection on the new layer...doesn't matter the color, we are making a mask to attach our paper to. Under Edit>Fill Selection

Now it will look like this:

Step 6: Drag the paper you want to "tear" onto the stack OVER the mask, UNDER the tear.

Step 7: "Clip" the paper to the mask. Make sure the paper layer is selected, then hit Ctrl-G (or Command-G on the mac)

Step 8: Merge the 3 layers: tear, paper, & mask.

Step 9: Add a shadow (you can move your paper around to exactly where you want it now)

That's it.  See?  Not hard at all.

Doesn't that make you want ALL of the torn edges?

There are so many fun papers and splash embellies that you just want to smile while you create your layout! Here's a look at the kit which you can get HERE:

Isn't that fun?!? My little boy and I tagged along with my husband on a recent business trip and I found this to be the perfect kit to scrap the photos of swimming in the hotel pool. Here's my layout using Make A Splash, Splash of Summer Alpha and Scrap Like Tracy Templates:
