Shelley Sue =)

Hey hon ~ I'm so sorry that I haven't gotten back to you yet on your comments.  Things have just been crazy around our house and I got a little sidetracked.

With the scriptures I do on scrapbook max, I use the Captions button (it looks like a little "a" right beside a big "A") and I type in what word I want in it.

Then I try on a font and scroll through them until I find the one I like and want to use.  SBM comes with a lot of fonts but a lot of the ones I use I've downloaded.  I'll add some links at the bottom of the places I frequent quite often.

I play around with different sizes until I get the effect I like.  It's a lot of work but it's also a lot of fun once you've done it a few times.  After I am done, I print it out big (usually 2 different scriptures per page) about 5inches height wise, and then I print what the font was and the number of how big the font is.  I'm really paranoid about losing them on the computer and not being able to make them again, so this little system works for me.

When I publish them, I go through a way too long process (but that's my ocd hehe), you can just publish them at "highest" and trim them in whatever word document you have.  I publish, plop them in SBM again and resize so that there's no big white spaces in between. hehe

** I also definately enjoy doing special requests and am thinking of making it a bi-monthly thing, I've been getting lots of requests for custom ones, so stay tuned and leave a comment of what you'd like and I'll make it up at some point.

Hope all this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions, pop your email into the comment, I won't publish it but I can email you for more support.  (((hugs)))

Crayon Wreath For Aizen's Teacher

I just finished making the crayon wreath for Aizen's teacher for Christmas. I got the idea from this youtube video and thought I'd try it out. It's SOOOOO cute. He is in a community classroom which is specifically for autistic children, so I found this really sweet autism awareness apple and knew I had to use it.

Gotta give some credits...
little bear digi stamp is by bugaboo stamps
teacher sentiment is by tlc creations

It was a lot of fun to make. I had to redo it b/c Aizen got into it and tore all the crayons off. I was not pleased but I can giggle about it now. Now I just need to put it in a HIGH-ER place where he can't see it.

This sentiment is so true about Ms. Hay.  She has so much enthusiasm working with these boys.  She is always cheerful and is well trained to do very creative things with them to get them learning.

Made a cute chalkboard and Melody thought it needed a piece of chalk!! lol, thus the little white piece of chalk at the bottom hehe

Love bugaboo stamps and this is such a cute little bear that is perfect for this wreath.
