Welcome to Hybrid Saturday with The Cherry On Top.
It's going to get really hot around here. International Scrapbooking Day is right around the corner and I've been working really hard with my designers so that we can bring you awesome digital and hybrid goodies and freebies.
The fun starts Friday with Flash Freebies. I'll be posting the best sales of the year on all of my scrappy sites as well as links to freebies and gorgeous inspiration that will have you downloading and itching to get scrappy.
Check out the new, free hybrid for today, the tutorial of various sorts, new goods in the shop and more. Keep reading and scroll for the link for this freebie.
I need labels for my recycled jars where I put my loose tea. I've been wanting to work with this colour palette and thought it was fairly versatile. When you download, you'll get the blank labels for you to customise as well as the printed labels. I can certainly use these as well. My tea and herbs are in the same cabinet and it is a crazy amalgamation of recycled pots and scents.
Pull up your jpg labels in your software of choice. I'm using PSE14. Click on the green T (hehehe...) and place the cursor where you want your font.
Choose your desired font. I'm a bit blind, so I went with bold and big. Hehehe...My herb labels are a bit more fancy shmancy. Goes a bit with my farm style kitchen.
Use the tool area to get the right size. The first font I chose gave a huge space between words so I changed it. Consider that if you want all of your fonts exactly the same size, that all of your wording will have to fit in the space provided. If ya keep it a bit smaller, it may work out better in the end and you won't have to distort your text either.
I want my text to be the exact same colour as my matting so I'm using the colour picker tool which is the eye dropper in your tool bar area. Click on the dropper, then click on whatever colour you want.
High light over your text then click over your pink colour box to change the colour of the text.
Yip! Perfect! Now click ok and you have perfectly matching font.
Now, I want my pearls to match perfectly, too. I've selected a pearl. Go to the layers column and click on the second icon from the left and choose, hue saturation. You can see it in my image, above.
Click on the colourize box. Since your box was already the right colour, it should automatically change the colour to a close match. If your colour box is not the right colour, use the eye dropper/colour picker tool to get the right colour.
Move the bars in your adjustment field to get just the colour you desire.
Use any kind elements you like to adorn your labels. A tea cup, swirls, pearls...Customise your labels to fit your requirements.
I put the four pearls in each corner for a touch of sophistication and simplicity.
Print out whichever printables you prefer or both and then get out the scissors. Don't forget, moving the paper instead of the scissors will give you a much better result.
If you don't want to do the fussy cutting, you can always cut closely to the label and shape it up as a rectangle, like I did, above.
I used two tiny glue dots at either end of the label to adhere it on to my recycled Nutella jar now tea jar. Hehehe...You can either rip off the label or put another one over the top of it with new glue dots.
