Photoshop Elements 3 Tutorial
Cookie Cutter - Digital Scrapbooking

There's a great new tool in Elements 3 called the 'Cookie Cutter Tool' and although it has many uses, it is especially helpful to digital scrapbookers. You need to play around with this tool, there's so many neat things you can do with it.

First, create a new project. 200 x 200 is a good size, any color background. Now create a new layer with a contrasting color or pattern and select the cookie cutter tool, picking the shape you want to cut out of the top layer. Draw out the shape and select the check mark (commit transform) icon at the top of the menu or just hit the 'return/enter' key to finalize it. If you don't like the way it looks, select the 'cancel transform' icon at the top of the menu or just hit the 'esc' key.

You should have a shape cut out on another layer now that looks similar to the first example below. You can keep repeating this process as many times as you want or just clone it remembering to select the cutout layer first.

       

 

You can also use the cookie cutter tool to cut a shape out of a photograph. Try it. Below are some other variations using the cookie cutter tool:

       

       

Sorry about the cupcakes but when I think of cookies...  I'm sure you can think of much more creative uses than the quick examples shown here.
