Cricut Cartridge and Digi Edges:
Summer Soirees

I was browsing the Circut website when I came across THEE cutest edge trimmed bags and papers. I couldn't believe they had a cartridge for this. I love them! I'm going to have the best goodies to give away. I do the cut edge for my designs digitally in Photoshop Elements. Take this freebie for example:
Here I used the PSE shape tool, put together a bunch of circles in an uneven row to get the scalloped look. I merged those circles together and cut half of them off to make the top straight edge. Then I used the shape tool again to make the tiny hearts/dots. I used a lot of copy/paste/merge layers until I had one strand of tiny heart/dot trim. I selected it and cut away the shapes in the original merged circles layer. Voila, punched trims. The satin look comes from putting a fill layer on top and using a hideous pink satin effect in PSE. I simplify that layer, remove the color, and ghost it over my creation... Voila once more: satin, punched trim.
