Who Makes Their Own Stuff

Summer_NHNovember 25, 2003

Does anyone here do their own printables? As in taking a template in your graphic program and doing a layout and printing it. Like cards, boxes, etc.

I use Paint Shop Pro and make my own templates and do layouts on them and I'm wondering who here does the same, or at least does their own layouts on others blank templates.

I enjoy doing things like that with my Picture It program.

Hi Summer, I make my own templates for all of the candy bar wrappers I do. Also, I made my own clock face templates. I've only used PrintShop for this. Just started using PSP 7 for editing pictures for another project.

P.S. I see you have a new "My Page".

Well I try! Am currently fooling with clip art and thread painting combined- sort of like the 'string art' with nails and string of the 60's on paper. Making, very slowly, my Christmas cards.

It seems like I am always trying to figure out my own way of doing something. I couldn't find a money envelope I liked last Christmas so I made one myself.

My DD is making a coupon book for her best friend for Christmas. She is making one coupon for each month for a free lunch out at their favorite restaurants. We made up our own template and it is really turning out to be a cute project. Each monthly coupon has the logo or something like it for each restaurant. She doesn't have a lot of money for an expensive present but her friend always goes all out. The gift is turning out to be a really nice gift but she doesn't have to come up with a lot of money all at once. Maybe someone else could use this idea.

I use the blank templates a lot using Picture It also. I have the Platinum Version. It is such an easy program to use.

I used to use Corel Print House Magic, but for awhile now, I use PSP7. I could never do backgrounds fills in Corel, but can in PSP. I love it. It's like magic. And there is a free program called "20/20", in which you can create perfect seamless backgrounds. That's the only thing I find PSP can't do.

Anyone else do their own computer crafts?

I just finished one after trying to get one for the Nestle Water Bottle...Needed a "Not Quite"
2-inch label to fit around the bottle for my son's first communion. I am very pleased with it,
especially since its a Word template and they are so hard to find.

Now I'm going to tackle the Hershey Wrappers (100g-3.5 oz), Regular 45 g(1.55) & the one for the Nuggets-for Word :)

Hope they turn out as well

I make my own greeting cards using Microsoft Home Publishing, nothing like personalizing cards...
