Here's wishing each of you that 2018 holds all that your heart desires and may each day be blessed with loads of wonderful moments and miracles.
This year I plan to keep all my graphics as simple as possible since my creative juices are dwindling...LOL! Well, if my brains are running high in creations than maybe...you might see it creative...again, LOL!
My birthday graphics especially will be open to all who request them and will no longer be a special individual creation! I've always wanted my birthday tags to be one of significance but come to think of it, there are probably some members who'd want the same birthday tag but couldn't have it due to it's individuality, so yeah, I'm opening my birthday tags to all who would like to request one!
I'm not sure of wanting to keep my graphics on a long term period and should you request one, much, much later after the uploads; I'll have to see if the original is still available. If it is, then I'll gladly fill in your request...also, may I please request a vote and comment on the original tag before you put in your request, thanks.
I know that I'm truly blessed to have a special bond with each GG friend of mine! Thank you all for an amazing 2017 and have a blessed 2018!
Good afternoon, Shakela! You are welcome for my prayers on your safety. I am glad to see you got some sunshine yesterday. I can imagine it being a warm welcome. Lol

Hi Shakela,thanks for stopping by. I was voting and found the adorable tag you left on my page just after voting for it. I love it, the look on the girl's face is precious. Thank you so much, great way to start the day. I hope you have a super fun day today. We have like 15 inches of snow and it is still coming down but very small flakes. It is Beautiful, want to get more pictures of it today. Have a great day sweetie, Jane
Melanie asked me the same question just the other day LOL
Here was my reply to her:
(Hope it helps you too)
You asked about how I do some of my lettering.
Most of the time, unless I am using a pre-made alphabet; I use a program called Print Master Platinum 2011.
I think I got it at either Target or Walmart for about $40.
I really like it because not only does it have lots of clip art, the program allows you to import your own graphics also.
But the best thing is the lettering. The program allows you to put "fills" inside the font that you are using. You just upload a texture, background or any kind of graphic and the program places the picture inside the text. From there you can enlarge, shrink or position the fill any way you like.
You can also bevel the text which makes it look raised.
(That's how I do the lettering on my fruit tags).
You can also add drop shadows or different types of outlines to the text.
I didn't know that the program had all the lettering options when I bought the program, so it was a nice surprise :) I had fun playing with it and learning the various options. It also helped that it is fairly user friendly.
