If you guys are anything like me, you're always on the lookout for cute frames to make your teaching products more attractive and appealing. However, I had made the mistake of buying several products that I thought were frames but found out they were borders after the purchase. This latest addition of Tricks of the Trade #2 is going to show you how to change some of your borders to frames.
If you don't know the difference, a frame typically has a white background in the middle that makes it easier to add text and pictures on. A border has a transparent middle so that your text and pictures can still be seen. Sometimes I want just a border, but most often I like to use frames.
Here's an example of a border I bought and wanted to use but it didn't work right for this file. You'll see the red arrow is pointing to a cute border but my text and pictures don't look right on the blue dotted background.
If you click on this tutorial, I'll show you how I changed the border and made it into a frame.
Once I got done with the tutorial, my cover page now looks like this. Now my text is easier to read and it looks more appealing. And best of all, I don't feel like I wasted my money buying a border when I really wanted a frame!
Kinder-Craze has a great tutorial on how to add a favicon on your blog. I did mine yesterday. I believe I have it working (even though I can't see it myself). Can anybody see if I have a brown puzzle piece on an aqua background as my favicon? If you want to add a favicon to your blog, check out the tutorial by click on her button.
I'm kinda enjoying myself making these tutorials. I have a few in mind that I want to make during the next few weeks. Does anybody have any requests of things you might like to see? I hope you're all enjoying your summer and not sweltering too much in this heat!
