Create a Valentine’s Day Printable

Valentine’s Day Printable

 

I am a hopeless romantic, and just love Valentine’s Day. Today, I am here to show you how to create a simple Valentine’s Day printable using word art and digital elements from The Digital Press. You can print and frame for a piece of artwork… or make a card to send to a loved one.

 

Valentine's Day Printable

Step 1. Gather a collection of Digital Supplies that includes any word art and elements you would like to use. For my printable, I used l’Amore by Little Lamm & Co., Be Mine by Mari Koegelenberg & Danielle Engebretson, and the TDP mini kit Cherished.

Step 2. Create a new 8×10 canvas in your photo-editing program (it should be 300dpi for print-resolution). Place your words on your layout until you have them arranged in the desired position.

Step 3. You can add color to some of the words, or clip digital papers to items you’ve chosen. You can even add drop shadows to a few of your words to add dimension.

Step 4. If desired, add a few digital elements to embellish your word art (you can see that mine uses hearts, arrows, etc.).

Step 5. Print it out onto paper and frame at 8×10 to show off your new lovely artwork.

Step 6. If you would also like to create a greeting card using your printable, simply re-size it to 5×7 and then print, seal with a kiss, and send to your loved one.

Cute, isn’t it? And so easy!

Hopefully this tutorial helps you think of ideas for repurposing your digital products and creating your own home printables and cards.

Moving Forward into Fall

Moving Forward Into Fall

 

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready to move forward into Fall. Fall is by far my favorite season. There is just something about fall that brings a peaceful feeling. I don’t know if it’s the change in weather or the beautiful warm colors, but I just can’t wait for that  first crisp breeze that lets you know summer is gone and fall is in the air.

As fall officially begins this month, I’d thought I’d share a few of the things I look forward to. Here are some of my Fall Favorites:

  • The Crisp, Fresh Air
  • The Beautiful, Warm Colors
  • Leaf Lookin’ (as we call it in the South)
  • Football Season
  • Sweaters & Tall Boots
  • Pumpkin Lattes (or anything pumpkin flavored)
  • Snuggling Up with a Warm Blanket and a Good Book
  • Halloween
  • Corn Mazes
  • Hot Apple Cider
  • Making Soups
  • Pumpkin Patches
  • Leaves Crunching Under Your Feet
  • Fall Festivals
  • Fall Spices – Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves

 

I used Little Lamm & Co.’s Crisp Collection to document some of my fall favorites.

Real Love

Real-Love

Real Love. What does that look like to you? It is actually a very deep question. Some people run from real love. Some people run towards real love. Some will even fight for real love. It will evoke emotion within you. As you are sitting there reading this post, what are you feeling about REAL love? It is a tough question. If you are in a great spot in your life, it will give you happy thoughts. If you are in a rough spot, I will be surprised if you have read this far. It can be very painful. Where are you?

I want you to think about real love. Where you are at right now. One of the places I am at is seeing 15 years of “work” paying off. I have fought for real love with my girls. My oldest never liked her younger sister (shocking, I know.). But she is finally at a place where she is maturing and appreciating the relationship she has with her. She is even starting to mentor her. As a SAHM, this has been my job. Raising a loving, caring family. There were days I wanted to quit. But I knew I couldn’t. So I kept fighting for real love. It got messy. It was beautiful. And it was worth it.

Real Love
