Using PSE for digital scrapbooking, I used to be able to make cute titles out of my various papers but lost the directions. How can I use a font to type a title and then stamp or cut it out of a separate piece of paper to capture that color and pattern and then place into my page (In other words, creating a patterned paper title)? I seem to remember maybe using a blank page, doing some copying and pasting and having marching ants showing me it was cut out and I could paste it into my digital scrapbook page.
If I understand you correctly, you need to create a clipping mask:
That's actually easier than the way I used to do it. Thanks!
Actually I spoke too soon. I can't seem to get the title into my other document. I have noticed that I can't seem to copy from one page and put onto another page. When I select it I don't have the option to copy or paste from one to another.
That worked where I can drag and drop from photo bin. Is there a way if I create a cluster of objects (layers) on one page to copy those and paste them into another document? I have been wanting to do that too.
You should be able to drag and drop the title file into another document from the Photo Bin.
Alternatively, you need to merge the visible text layers, e.g. using the Shift+Ctrl+E shortcut. You can then copy and paste the merged text layer into your other document.
There are various other commands that will do the same thing, but hopefully this takes care of your needs.

There are probably several methods to do that, but here is one that is fairly easy.
Below is a screenshot composite showing two untitled documents. The first (Untitled 1)has a red background layer with 3 shape layers, a text layer and another blank layer. The second (Untitled 2) has a plain green background layer.
I hope this helps.
