Select the cookie cutter tool and then you will see the various options on the top options bar such as the design (which can be any of the vector CSH designs) as well as feathering and also crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the vector design). If the crop tool is not set to ON then the design is just placed in the original location (feathered or not) with the document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter removed. While applying the cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the proportions of the graphic as well as rotate and scale and shear.
