Actually the negative effect and the clapperboard do not require any papers or elements. The layered effect , you can use anything really, as the interior of the number or other vector you choose. I had some trouble with the layered effect. Not quite sure what I was doing wrong but I needed to adjust the number to the outline. I watched the tutorial a number of times and could not figure out what I was missing. I’ll try again when my brain clears. 🙂 By the way, if you haven’t already found hungry jpeg or pixel scrappers, they both offer freebees on a regular basis. Good luck!
