    I loved your shadow wave tutorial and I use that so much. However I have PSE (11) and don't have the option to put shadows on their own layers easily. I bought an action that does that, run it part way through, then add in the wave afterwards. The action is from a different store so I don't know if I can share the designer.

    The wave tutorial is not by me. I just remembered where it was and linked it here! Just so I'm not stealing credit :)

    Cheryl @gonewiththewind has a video demoing how to put shadows on their own layer in PSE on her Youtube channel:

    I don't know if you want to get specific, but I do know washi is always a struggle to shadow
    Peppermint has a great washi shadowing tutorial on her blog: http://onelittlebirddesigns.com/2012/01/digital-washi-tap/
    and Cheryl has a video for shadowing washi:

    Whoa. I just read that and realized my shadows must look terrible. Now I want to go back and fix the shadows on ALL my layouts that haven't been printed, which is a lot. All this time I've just been using pre-made shadow styles with only a little warping. I feel like a dolt! This tutorial is awesome. Can't wait to try all these things she teaches.

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I knew TLP would come through for me. :) I'm a new digi scrapper and have no idea what I'm doing when I try to shadow… :duh I just click on stuff. (seriously)

    Ok guys, I'm lazy and don't want to warp my own shadows. Is there an action that will do this for me? I'm specifically looking for one that will 'lift' the bottom two corners of paper layers. This one's nice but sometimes I'd like a more symmetrical lift, this one often turns out kind of crooked.

    Ooh, awesome! I've been lazily shadowing for years, knowing that I could do better. I didn't see this when you first posted it, so I'm glad it popped up again today. I will find some time soon to devote to improving my shadowing, with the help of this thread. Thank you!

    I started scrolling through The Learning Pad today to see which Why It Works Polly challenges I'd completed (far too few; I've added them to my monthly challenges document where I keep track of completing them and I'm going to work on a couple of them every month) and I have just kept scrolling and reading some of the other threads.

    So I came to this one and thought, this should be pinned to the top of the forum! :D

    @AnneofAlamo can you link re shadowing also the Non LilyPad written ones, but the ones by the designers from their own blogs or no? Just checking. Thanks!
