So what I did first was do the hunt...I went to Graphic Stock and found a really nice graphic I thought would go well with my style. Below is the process with which I went through to create it. It looks like a lot of work, but really it goes fairly fast. I use PaintShopPro and Photoshop to do most of me editing, but with this particular image, I used PSP. I removed the background and some of the shadow and put a white circle on the top. Then step 3, I put the image into the Cameo software, (by the way, it only accepted a jpeg image, so dont try to use a png!), traced out the image. Once I was happy with the results of the line drawing, I grouped the pieces then copied and pasted them and put as many shapes as I could on the page.
Save the file..always save before you cut or print..I have made enough mistakes over the years that its something I automatically do. Although the Cameo software does a nice job of autosave. Then step 4 as you see is the final results after cutting. I am going to eventually put another little label on the bottom half of the tags that say THANK YOU. I found the exact shape on Graphic Stock and digitally cut out each label and saved them with different names... I am really liking Graphic Stock. There are far more designs I can use for more than just eye candy! Anyway, I hope you like the tags... When I get the second label made and adhere it to the tag I will show it to you then.
More fun stuff coming soon!
Thanks for stopping by..Chris :-)
