Thursday's Tip: Stringbean Family Tree

What are you creating with your new full colored Stringbean bundle? We think its the perfect set to create your own fun family tree! See below to find out what other products we used to make this work of art!

Create a family tree for your family using the new Layered Stringbean Bundle. Start by finding stringbeans that represent your fun, fabulous family! Next build your tree from the Gooble Gratitude Cut It Project. This tree is tall and perfectly spaced for loading up with lots of family members! I used frames from the Good Company Cut It Simple Shapes, however you could always go without. I added a kite for fun from the In Like a Lion Cut It Set as well. My background paper came from the Cloud Nine Paper Pack, if you don't have this one yet, its a great paper pack full of some nice analogous color schemes that seem to go with just about anything! Have fun, be creative and get creating!

Thursday's Tip: Message Photo for Dad

Buying gifts for dad can be hard, but what dad wouldn't melt over a fun message photo framed up or as a card. This gift is fast, easy (as long as the kiddos cooperate), darling and will forever be cherished!

LD Petticoat Black
Love Flourish Cut It Set (or any other set with a heart)


Begin by cutting out your letters and heart. Cutting fonts out is super easy if you have Make-The-Cut.
Just click on the texts and fonts tab to the right. Select the font you want to use. I used LD Petticoat Black, and then select the Add Text Group button beneath and a box will pop up for you to add the letters you would like. I did one letter at a time since I was making them fairly large.

Then size the letter by selecting the corner and dragging.

Once the letters are cut, the most difficult part of this was actually taking my super uncooperative kids pictures, try to have fun, and make the best of it. No matter what it will turn out cute!

Create the format you want to place the photos on. You can decide sizing and then format rectangles or squares to fit. If you create each rectangle on a separate layer, you can easily align and space the rectangles by selecting each one and selecting the appropriate align button at the top.

When the format is created, go ahead and place each photo above the square you would like, and then right click on the photo layer and select "create clipping mask". The photo will insert inside the created format. I then sized my photo down from here so that it fit how I wanted it to.
Get all the photos placed, and your message card or framed art is done!
