2 Picasa Ready Backgrounds

Have you tried digital scrapbooking in Picasa yet?

 Even if you have design software, it is still fun to build a layout in Picasa, not to mention- very fast.
Currently, Picasa flattens .png files, so it is hard to have that "layered" look.  For this reason, we offer downloads that are "Picasa Ready".
It's easy.

1. Select the photo's that you want, and hold them in your dropbox
2. Picasa creates the collage
3. Crop the collage + save it
4. Create another with collage #1 on top of your Picasa Ready paper

Although Picasa won't read .png files, there are ways around that!

Adding Different Font Types... 

The "EASTER" font below is the "wish I were taller font" from non other than Kevin and Amanda.
Kevin and Amanda have so many scrapbook style font's available for free!

The green diamond border on the left is a wingding/webding font. {Webdings is a TrueType symbol for the web.}
You may not know it- but you already have webdings installed on your computer (if you don't- you need a new computer) Browse your fonts, and find "webdings"- you may even have 2 or 3 styles of them.

(Webdings is a symbol font designed in 1997 as a response to the need of Web designers for a fast and easy method of incorporating graphics in their pages. -microsoft)

Play around with your Wingdings/Webdings!
