TpT School: How to print your fonts and save as a PDF

Do you have a font obsession as well as a clip art addiction? It's OK - you can tell me, I confess... Just can't get enough of the pretty fonts and the cute clipart!

Do you feel overwhelmed by all of those KG fonts you've got stored in your dedicated font folder? Wish you were able to easily and quickly find THE perfect font to go with your favorite script or handwritten font which will make your product cover POP?!

In this tutorial, I will guide you on how to print a sample of all of your fonts, but if you don't want to waste ink and would rather have a digital copy, I'll show you how to create a PDF of all of your fonts as well.


TpT School: How to brand your TpT store

I have seen lots of questions in Facebook groups and on the TpT seller forum regarding logos, shop banners, rotating quote banners, and product covers - so I thought I'd write a post to help you all out.

I know when I was a newbie, I didn't have a clue how to add branding or the sizes of anything - especially the circle logos! I definitely did NOT know how to create or install a rotating quote banner (basically a GIF) - so after learning the hard way, I thought I'd share my experience with you so you can learn the easy way! ;)

In this post you will find instructions on how to add branding to your TpT store, the dimensions of logos, banners and covers so they'll fit perfectly, how to add a rotating quote banner, as well as blank templates which you can edit and use.

If you're lucky - I might even throw in an example of a generic shop banner and a rotating quote banner that you can use to decorate your store, or just to use as practice whilst following the tutorial.


Stationery 'PORN' Must-haves #1

Not only am I addicted to clipart, but I have always had a soft spot for anything stationery!
When I was young, all I ever wanted was to have my very own OFFICE! Sad, I know! My mum wouldn't let me convert my bedroom, I don't know why! ;) I wanted a half glass door with my name in gold letters... OK, TMI!

I think my dreams have rubbed off onto our daughter as she already has a desk, laptop and is planning to spend her Christmas money on stationery so she can make her desk look like mine! Oops! :P

Thanks to TpT, and my wonderful partner - Now, I have my very own office space which I call: "My Product Creation Area"... Here it is:

So, now that I have everything I ever dreamed off as a child... Now, I need to kit it out with the cutest, bestest stationery! YAY!

Here is some stationery eye candy that I keep shoving in front of my partner... I wonder if the hints are working (I'll let you know!):
