Hello Friend {Geek Lab}

Blog Image_Geek LabHi friends,

Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing two fun cards using the printables from the February BEE You kit. I love that we have these fabulous printables to help complete our kits. They always go so well with the papers and colors of the kit. Most of all, I love how you can adapt them to work for your project.

The two cards I’m sharing showcase one of the printables and how I used Photoshop to make it work for my card. Here are the two cards that I made:

I also created a process video that will walk you through how I pulled the image from the printables, into Photoshop, and added the text. I printed it off to use as a die cut type element on one card and then printed it onto another printable element for a card base.

To see all the details and steps, I encourage you to watch the video below.

I hope this video has helped you come up with some new ways and ideas for using printables on your cards and projects. The possibilities truly are endless!

Stay tuned because it’s almost time for the reveal of our March kit and boy is it a beauty!!!

Have a great day friends!

Good day to all! I have heard from quite a few of my friends recently asking me what’s the best way to add text into my photos or edit them, so I thought I would share some tips! Basically, I am almost a computer/IT idiot that’s why Photoshop is too difficult for me (though I know everything can be done through it). I, however, edit almost all my photos through PicMonkey because it’s FREE!

Here’s how: Click on the link and it will direct you to the page as shown below.

Then, open a file and upload it. Then you may crop it to Instagram square sizes (though we finally no longer need to) or any dimension you want. I like to play around with the exposure to add brightness to the photo, sharpen it a little and even adjust the temperature of the photo (warm or colder).

Then to add text to your photo, simply click on add text. The best part is that even your own collection of fonts may be found under the “Yours” section. Do note that those with a crown sign beside it requires extra charges.

After playing around with the text, here’s how it looks like:

Then click save. I like to save the photo quality as sean but if you are concern about the photo sizes, then there are 3 options to choose from.

Then finally, have it printed out and here’s my layout with the hello lovely collection!:D
