    Hi everybody! I just added a new freebie pack to the website - Chevron Doodles Digital Papers in blue, pink & purple. I was originally going to use these in a Valentines Day set, but decided they may be fun to give away instead. :)


    You can find this on my freebies page.

    Personal & commercial (with credit required) use is OK, but the regular terms of use still apply. Please also feel free to share the link to my freebie page but do not claim this design as your own or set up a direct link to the graphics. 

    Happy designing!

    Hello everybody! Last year I wanted to write up some tutorials & design tips on how to use my graphics & digital paper packs but...that happened one time. Ugh. So here's to a new year and a fresh start! :)

    One of the questions I get frequently is how to add text and/or graphics to my frame & tag clipart sets so I'm going to show you how I made the following design:


    To start, I'm using Photoshop Elements as I've found that is a program most of my customers have access to. If you don't have it you can find it on the Adobe website. I'm also using the following:

    Yellow chevron circle from my Yellow/Blue/Green Circle Frame Clipart Set
    Blue flower from my Monkey Clipart Set

    You can start by opening a new file in Photoshop Elements in your desired size, but I started this design by just opening the yellow chevron circle directly in PSE.


    From there I added a new layer. You can do this by either clicking on the little box (circled in red, below) in the layers box or by choosing the command of "layers, new, layer" from the toolbar at the top of the screen.


    After adding my new layer I choose the text tool from the commands on the left hand side of the page (the little "T" icon) and then typed in the wording I wanted to use and then selected my fonts. After that I clicked on the text so a little box came up around it and I could resize it as needed. Make sure when you resize you "constrain proportions" so nothing gets stretched funny. Then click the little green checkmark when you have your wording all set. 

    After this I decided I would like to add a graphic so I went to the "file, place" commands from the top toolbar and chose my graphic.


    This automatically will add a new layer. 


    I then resized my flower graphic the same way I resized the text. From there I also moved the flower up to the top of the circle and then I moved my text down. You can move these layers by clicking on your graphic(s)/text and using your arrow keys or mouse to move these layers up/down into place.

    And here's the final outcome!


    I resaved this new file in PSD format so I could make changes at a later date. I also saved it in PNG format so I could upload it to my blog for this tutorial. 

    If you want to use these graphics for things like monthly onesie stickers or items you personalize, I would recommend first starting a new file in your desired size and then going to "file, place" to add your circle/frame graphic to the new document and then proceed with the rest of the steps for adding text & other graphics. 

    I hope this is helpful!

    How about a new tutorial this week? I'm going to show you how to create an easy logo in Photoshop Elements. I first want to note that when possible a logo should be created in a vector based program such as Illustrator, so you can scale it up & down without losing any quality. Not everybody has access to this, however, which is why I'm using Photoshop Elements for this tutorial (as a majority of my customers do use this).


    So lets get started! I created this design:

    using the following things:


    Before you get started you'll want to find a graphic that best represents your image/brand as well as a font. When choosing your graphic make sure it is OK for commercial use and for use in logos. I do allow all of my clipart sets to be used for logos but not everyone does. The same goes for fonts. While there are a lot of fonts out there not all can be used for commercial use.

    Once you have your graphic/font all set open Photoshop Elements. I didn't really know what size I wanted to make this so I thought I would just start a new file that was 1000 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall and I could adjust it from there. When you create this make sure you make your background transparent. That way you can place the graphic on top of pattered/colored backgrounds without getting a white box around it.


    Next I placed my graphic into the file. I went to the toolbar at the top and chose "file, place".



    You'll notice that the camera graphic takes up almost the whole document so I decided to scale this down in size. To do this click on the graphic and you'll see little boxes come up in the corners. Just click on these and drag to your desired size. When you do this make sure you have the "constrain proportions" box checked at the top so everything stays in proportion. After I resized the camera I dragged it to the middle of my document. (and p.s. I'm sorry that the text on the screenshots is hard to read...I should have zoomed in a little more when I did this).


    Next I added my text. I decided I wanted to just put my text under the graphic and I color matched the charcoal black color for "Erin Bradley" but for designs I put the font in all caps and did different colors (I'll do another tutorial at a later date on color matching!).


    From here I saved the file in PSD format. Even though I was pretty set on the design I wanted to keep an original file in case I want to make changes or make this larger or smaller in the future.

    There was still a bunch of blank space around the sides of the graphic, however, and I definitely don't want that when I use the file. So I used the crop tool to draw a square around the graphic. I don't like to leave a lot of extra space on these types of files because the blank space will save to the file and sometimes can throw proportions off a little bit. Once I got this cropped to a good place I clicked the green check mark and then saved this as a PNG file. Done!


    When you create your own file you can obviously move your graphics/text wherever you would like. Here's another example with the graphic to the left and text to the right.



    And your done! I'll do another post on how to use your logo and create more branding products so stay tuned! :)
