It is beautifully done with the elements here and there, the brushes on the background paper and the recipe written over the jars with rhubarb blended in the background. Congrats […]

Quick Tip #4 – Scaling Text

by SnickerdoodleDesigns 19 May 2012

A great way to emphasize a particular word in your journaling is to change its font style, color, or size.  In the past, I used to type part of a sentence on one layer, then type the word I wanted to emphasize on another layer (adjusting the font style, size, and color). I would then […]

While we love being stationed in beautiful Germany, one of the major downsides is how far we are from family.  Our parents, my sister, our big boys. This is especially difficult when it comes to big events.  Events we really, really want to be at, like Soren’s graduation two weeks ago.  It is not cheap […]

Quick Tip #3 – Previewing Font Styles

by SnickerdoodleDesigns 16 May 2012

I love creating Word Art!  Part of that love is deciding on the “perfect” font that I “need” to use for a particular word or phrase.  There have been times when I have spent more time previewing and sampling font styles, than I have spent in the creation of the word art itself.  That is, […]

It seems jet lag coming back from the states is much worse than going to the states.  Cole & I especially are struggling with getting our eyes open in the mornings, then keeping them open when late afternoon hits.  I would complain, but, well, I not only got to see my oldest son graduate college, […]

Genius!

I, my friends, have a small problem. I am a terrible speller. Blame it on spell check, if you will. Especially on my computer, every time I misspell a word those little red warning dots point it out for me. In every program. Except Photo Shop. I would painstakingly read and re-read all my journaling, thinking I […]
