Quick and Easy Recipe Brag Book

Adobe Photoshop Recipe Cards Templates
Adobe Photoshop Recipe Cards - Video Tutorial

A while back a good friend of ours presented us with a simple and effective recipe book. Inside of a simple 4x6 mini-photo album were typed recipe cards of her favorite recipes. I immediately knew this was a must-create digital template and concept. These easy-to-use pre-formatted templates contain all the applicable layers for you to replace with your content to create unique recipe cards.

In the associated video tutorial I guide you through the assembly of a recipe card using the templates. Along the way, I provide efficiency concepts and tips on how to quickly edit text layers, fill layers with color, effectively use solid color and gradient adjustment layers, and use a few other tricks to quickly create these cooking delights. Additionally, the video tutorial discusses printing and simple binding methods for the creation of a low-cost 'cookbook' from these 4x6 cards--perfect for gifts to family and friends.

Our Price: $2.50

Text Paths (aka Type on a Curve) FREEBIE

Adobe Photoshop Text Path Objects
Adobe Photoshop Text Path Objects - Video Tutorial
The 'Type on a Curve' article in Creating Keepsakes, October 2009, reminded me of one of the many to-do projects on the to-create list.
In Adobe Photoshop you can create just about any shape you want, turn it into what's called a path or vector representation of the created shape, and then using the type tool, create text that will sit on and follow the outside of the shape OR you can also create text that will wrap itself to the inside of the shape. (see rotating image above)
While these editable text layers can only be created in the Photoshop CS versions, once they are created and saved properly, these Photoshop documents with the text path layers can still be opened and edited in Adobe Photoshop Elements. HOORAY!

Click on the following links for Download1, Download2, Download3, and Download4 to access the FREE 40+ Text Path documents containing vector shapes and associated text layers for outside and inside text areas. Associated zipped downloads include:
- (41) 12x12 300dpi, individual layered Adobe Photoshop Document (PSD) files
- (41) Resizeable vector shapes for clipping mask use
- (80+) Text path layers for creating text outside and text inside the vector shapes (Not all shapes have both)
- Text Path documents work in both Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Photoshop CS versions

For instructions and details on how to work with the Text Path documents, please use the PLAY arrow button above to launch a video tutorial.
