What's old is new Again...



Two years ago I blogged about Wordle.net. This is a great website where you can make your own word art, and this style of word art is so popular now. I love making cards from Wordle. They are so original and you can personalize them so well. Here are some cards I made with wordle.


How do you get your wordle creation to be on a card??? Once the wordle is done, I print it to my "cute PDF Writer" (it's a free application - cutepdf.com), which prints it to PDF format. Once I have it in PDF format, I then convert it to jpg format through this free converter(http://convert.neevia.com/pdfconvert/) . Once I have it in .jpg, I can do whatever I want with it, resize, etc...It's really not complicated...

I've used wordle but never thought about using it this way. My niece did a one for her baby in the colors of his nursery. She then had it printed as poster at walmart. It's so cute.

Wordle is definitely fun, but is there a trick to getting your Happy Thanksgiving featured so well, or did you just re-shuffle until it worked out?
