That's the beauty - You don't have to learn anything!

It will install to your embellishment folder in the gallery so when you're working in SBM, simply click on "custom shape" in the picture properties box and browse to these, find your letter and click it!!

Julie's right - these are perfect for those of us who don't know how to make our own shapes and elements, etc. You just choose the paper, then click on custom shape and use these shapes and you have a great torn-paper alphabet!

Just a tip, too:

In the preview in the store, there is a black background behind each one (I don;t like the gray drop shadow so much and always end up placing a vblack one behind things)

Here's an easy eay to do that with any element.

1. Right click and copy and then right click and paste the element (essentially, duplicate it.)

2. Now go to your advanced features into the brightness / contrast option and move both of the sliders all the way to the left - This wiull turn whatever you are working with totally black. (FYI - you can slide them all the way to the right to make something totally white - for, say, a photo border)

And there you have it! a black "shadow" - Simply place it behind your original, nudge it a bit and voila!:cool:

Do you mean you would like an alphabet shape set that does not have torn look to it?

What about this font for a set of alpha shapes?

Here's a sample "A" for you to try out.

(Just save it and use it as a shape mask)
