Little Extra - template....

I entered the Greetings agogo Design Team call but as they have announced the new DT members, I guess that I did not get in... Huge congratulations to the really talented new members :) I did however have some really fantastic crafty news last week - not sure if I can share yet but watch this space!!

Kathy gave us a template for the little extra this week...and it was certainly a challenge!! I came up with this which I am not overly impressed with but it matches the template nicely :)...



I used freebie papers from Papercraft Essentials Mag, notecards that I 'borrowed' from Mum, Creative Impressions Ribbon and Photo Hanger, Papermania Eyelets and Photo Turn, Bazzill Brads, Prima Flowers and Printed the text in a circle using Beyond Wonderland font and Word....

How To Print Text in a Circle


(clicking the piccies makes them bigger :))

Open Word and click the insert Word Art symbol


Click on the option that looks like and arch - on my Word it is the third on at the top and type the text you require


Click okay and the text will appear in the document. Click the Word Art shape symbol on the Word Art toolbar and choose the circle shape.


Text will appear squashed up - you can resize the shape by clicking format >> word art and then changing the size of the circle. By making the height and width identical, you will obtain a circle :)

HTH someone :)
