I want to say Thanks again for this great idea. As I was working on an ATC for today's layout I realized that two of them would easily fit at the bottom of an 8 1/2" x 11" photo paper when I print my 8" x 8" layouts on my computer.

Your idea will do something productive with that lost waste space on the paper and give me two little ATCs to add to my genealogy family sheets and my index card name file.

On a sheet of 8.5 x 11 you can fit 9 atc's at 2.5" x 3.5". (I believe the setting is A4). As far as printing a 4x6 card, most people fit 2 ATC's onto the one space and print. I tend to use Target or Shutterfly because the prints are so inexpensive and they do all the formatting for me

Default ATC

I am addicted, I have been doing them for 2 years and love them. I often make them and laminate them and then give them as gift cards, often with the person themselves on the card. Here is one I did sometime ago.

I'm pretty new to digiscrapping, so some basic things elude me. But I was instantly attracted to the ATC's. I thought I could make one of each of my grandkids!!! So, anyway, I downloaded the template, but how, exactly do I use that? I have the card assembled and it's the way I want it, but the corners aren't rounded like everyone else's, it's just a rectangular card the size of the ATC, but no round corners. thank you

Hi Karne,
It will depend on what program you use for scrapping but with PS CS2 and PS Elements 3.0 you can use the magic wand tool.

Starting from the very beginning: Open the template then add the background paper layer that you want for the ATC. With the template layer selected as the active layer, click on the template with the magic wand tool to select it. You may need to make adjustments so that it completely selects the whole template but it should work because the template is solid gray. So now click on your background paper layer to make it the active layer. If you were to press your Delete key now you would delete the selected background from the layer, leaving only those corners so instead you need to change the selection to anything outside of the selected outline by clicking Select > Inverse from the menu bar (or Shift+Ctrl +I) then press the Delete key and the corners will disappear.

Hope this was helpful. There may be a tutorial or a link to a tutorial in the Tutorials section of the forum too for other programs besides Photoshop.

I'm using Photoshop CS2, so your directions worked perfectly. thank you. Now, if I could show my naivety even more... Do you build your card directly on that template? Or do you move it to a new page, or what? I kind of did both.

Once I get the hang of posting pics and uploading to the albums/gallery, i don't know which, i'll share what i've done. so much to learn....

If you choose to 'build' it on the original template you run the risk of having the template accidently getting saved as part of your new ATC. The safest thing to do would be to do a Save As ASAP
