Greetings, everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely spring so far

This month's topic is text. I have a couple of videos in the works to post this month and if you see anything in the gallery that catches your eye as far as ext work, please link me up so I can see if I can walk you through it!

You can find this month's layout sample and PDF here. There's also a PDF that contains a bunch of examples of layouts that feature text work. Some are REALLY basic and some are a bit more involved but all are completely doable - promise!

January's class thread can be found HERE.
February's class thread can be found HERE.
The March class thread can be found HERE.
The April class thread can be found HERE.

Your link brought me to the April class. I found it here:

May Digi 101

The second PDF link does not seem to be correct either. It gives me a page not found message. Rosalie

Along the text lines.... I remember reading about a website that helps you create text art. If I recall correctly, you can type a list of words and it will random arrange them into a word art shape. I had a really strangle name, like woodle.... Does anyone know what I am talking about?

FYI Erica - the 2nd PDF with the samples isn't downloading for me. It says the page doesn't exist.

Thank you for the heads-up on the bad links! I fixed the class link in my original post. Not sure why that PDF isn't working so until I can get it fixed, you can download it here.

And yes - wordle is a great way to add some cool text to your layout!

Thank you, Erica! I finally found the link to the second PDF and what a treat it is!! SUPER!!! There's still no link to the May discussion thread so I've just bookmarked it instead. Thank you once again! I'm just going to drool over the examples again and then decide what to do.

Is the first link only supposed to be 1 page? That's all I get when I click on the "here"? Just an introduction page, no instructions. I have the 2nd link of examples.

I'm a little late to this class -- I tried downloading the second pdf with the examples through the link here and it says it exceeded it's download limit. Is there another place that I can find it?

Here's a link for some cool free fonts and 3 dingbats, if anyone is interested. I just got this e-mail & they're only free for a limited time. Thought I'd share the joy...
