Today’s tip addresses the creator present in us all. It serves the needs of the most creative of artists, or the “want-to-bes”, like me. I continue to be blown away by the software Broderbund produces for printing your own greeting cards, calendars, CD labels, T-shirt transfers, mailing labels, scrapbook pages and posters. This one was purchased within the last month at Office Max, and is the third such program from this company that I have owned. Each one has offered more features than the last.
This extremely user-friendly version of Broderbund has added a simple to use photo editor, which includes the ability to change colors and make corrections. You can then add text (with 500 choices for fonts (!)and/or art from their extensive collection of easily searchable images. The more you use it, the more uses you find for it. I have saved hundreds of dollars on the cost of greeting cards while producing much more personal greetings and can always find the image needed for needlework.
