I'm pretty sure they are all filters. Patty can tell you for certain, though. The coloring over the pics can be done with a photo filter. That's in Image>Adjustment>Photo Filter. You can pick the color that you want to put over it.
Oh and the torn edges is really easy. I found a tutorial for that online somewhere. I'll see if I can track it down.
Yeah it looks like she cut the pics in strips, put it back on top of the pic, added a stroke around it and then used a blue or underwater photofilter (sometimes you can adjust hue and saturation too)
For the background with a texture or background... select your subject with the lasso tool, selection>inverse and then apply to pattern or texture to the background. That is how I do it to blur the background...
For the cut up pics I bet you can just do a rounded retangle with a stroke around it and whatever color you want it to be...then just crop off one part and move to a canvas, edit undo and then do another part, etc
Have no clue about the edges...
to add texture go to filter>texture>texturizer and play with the settings
Okay how I did the textured picture. I found a background I like then I put the picture over it and set the blending mode to Pin Light (I think). It might have been overlay or soft light. I play around with it. I will try to find a link for you on torn edges if nobody else posts it before I find it.
Oh for the text I wrote it in white colored font and then changed the blending mode to overlay. It's a pretty cool effect.
Okay here I am. I am totally flattered that you asked. Okay I will tell you how I did mine.
I make all my papers which is why I haven't done a scrapbook sig in a while. It is time consuming (but not really that hard).
The one polkadotted paper was done with the half tone pattern filter (you can use lines or dots)
The other paper I did just by using making two circles each on their own layer. I may have used a large brush, can't remember. Then the circle with the little dotted section was easy. Make a new layer, use the circle marquee and go to edit>>stroke. This will make a hollow circle. Then just erase a little to make it look dotted. I just lined them up randomly to make a pattern.
ETA: Kim is right I did the photos with photo filters. Cut up your picture and then you can add a photo filter to change the color on it. I did two in blue and one in like the brown color I think. You can change the saturation and set it really high so it is really dark and you can change the photo filter colors just by clicking them and picking a new color.
This paper took me some time but it wasn't hard. To make the circles just use the circle marquee tool and make a new layer and then go to edit>>stroke and this will make a hollow circle. I made two circles lined them up and just used a round brush to put a dot in the middle. I made each of these their own layer. Then you can just go do a color overlay to change the colors on it. I used the grid to line them up and when I got a pattern of circles I liked I merged them and just copied and pasted them. Then I drew lines across the whole thing and merged the lines so it was one layer and put a gradient overlay over the whole thing.
ETA- Oh and I didn't do anything with her photo. That must have been done by her photographer. I just realized that maybe that was what you were asking. *blushing*
This one I used a rounded rectangle shape. You can play round with the radius to make it shaped the way you want it. Then I cut it up into sections. Then you can place your photo over the top of the shape, then go to Layer>>create clipping mask. And then merge down. I cut out little sections using the rectangular marquee to add the spaces in between.
I hope I explained everything okay. Maybe if I ever get time I will write out a lesson on some of my scrapbook stuff. If I confused you just ask I will try to be more clear. I know I kind of rushed through this.
There are several methods on doing torn edges. Go look over in Digi school on the digital scrapbooking board. The easiest way is to go around it with the smudge tool. Just zig zag back and forth. Then you can add a drop shadow. I normally don't do a drop shadow though because I like a shadow to be around the whole thing so what I do is duplicate my paper (with the torn edges) and fill it with black or dark brown, move it behind the layer, and do a gausean blur and adjust the opacity. Then to make it more real looking I will dodge and burn the edges.
