A Designer I am Not....but I do know how to make templates....so....if that is what I chose to do, does it need to be a set of templates, or just one?

Debra
05-04-2012, 03:49 PM
Just one template is fine :)

This sounds like fun, though I'm just getting my feet wet when it comes to digital design. I want to try something like Word Art, but just to keep it a surprise until I submit it, I'll just say it isn't "word" art. How many "word" art items should be in my mini-kit? Is there a way to get the Designer Frame (or whatever it's called) for my preview? Are there instructions anywhere on the website on how to construct a mini-kit and its preview?

Selra

Precepts and Promises
05-05-2012, 03:52 PM
Cathy, that's a really nice template!

Selra, I do quite a few word art packs and usually try to include about 8-12 clusters. It kind of depends on how intricate each one is. So, I guess a "mini" could be 4-5?
You can make your own preview template quite easily--it's kind of like making a layout!

Dumb me! When I finally got around to checking my link last night, I discovered that you had to download each file separately! I just fixed this by putting the files into a zip file and uploading that to MediaFire. Here is the new link that will make your download much easier.

You can download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ffs38ol1uaofncq
