2013 Mutual Theme Chalkboard Posters in Six Sizes

As promised, I’ve got posters for you! I used my 2013 Mutual Theme logos to create a chalkboard-style poster in 18×24, 16×20 and 11×14-inch sizes for you to use for youth conferences, New Beginnings, Young Women in Excellence, firesides and to hang in your classrooms. Plus, I’ve included 4×6, 5×7 and 8×10-inch sizes so you can have them printed as handouts or gifts for your youth, leaders, parents or to use as binder covers. All in all, this poster set includes 18×24, 16×20, 11×14, 8×10, 5×7 and 4×6-inch high-quality jpeg files ready to upload to your favorite photo printer. (I usually go with Costco.com for printing my posters, but there are several fantastic printers out there.) (NOTE: My watermark is not on the download posters.)

2013 Mutual Theme 8×10-inch Posters: Stand Ye in Holy Places

The day I read the announcement of the 2013 Mutual Theme, I was excited to get designing! And although I am not ready to reveal my 2013 logos, I did whip together some 8×10-inch posters for you. Inspired by the Keep Calm and Carry On posters from World War II England, my Stand Ye in Holy Places posters in bright red, blue and yellow work perfectly for binder covers, handouts, visual aids and more.

Arise and Shine Forth 16×20-inch Posters: Blank and in YW Value Colors

Another wonderful reader asked if I could make her some 16-by-20-inch posters in the YW Value colors.  She is going to add her own text to them and use them throughout the year.  What a great idea!  I want to share these posters with you, too!  I’ve created eight high-quality 16-by-20-inch posters in each of the following colors:  gray (Faith), blue (Divine Nature), red (Individual Worth), green (Knowledge), orange (Choice and Accountability), yellow (Good Works), purple (Integrity) and gold (Virtue).  Each poster has the chandelier and black bottom border as well as a unique damask background.  Besides using these for YW Personal Progress/Values, they would be perfect for creating large posters for adding Girls Camp photos, featuring your YW Recognition Award-earning girls for Young Women in Excellence, making signs for women’s conference workshops or announcing Relief Society activities and other Church-related events.  Use them for birthday parties, bridal showers or baby showers, too!

To customize these posters, you will need a photo-editing program like Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro or Gimp or other similar software.  Simply open the .jpeg file you want to use and add text, photos and graphics as you desire.  Be sure to save your changes as a high-quality .jpeg file for best printing results.  I love uploading my 16-by-20-inch posters to Costco.com for printing! Be sure to use their high-resolution upload option, not their fast upload.

Because of the large file size of each posters, I’ve zipped them into two separate downloads.

To get the full eight-poster set, you will need to download BOTH files. 

Also, these are huge files and they may take some time to download, depending on your internet connection speed.

Download Part 1 here.

Download Part 2 here.

These files are for non-commercial, personal and Church use only!

Arise and Shine Forth Posters: Pink, Green and Yellow

My next download for you is another reader request.  She asked for the posters to be done with the pink, green and yellow backgrounds that I used for the calendars so she can put them on eight-by-ten-inch canvases as gifts for her girls.  What a great idea!  Not only did I redo the eight-by-ten-inch posters with the new backgrounds, I also did the 8-by-10.5-inch, 11-by-17-inch and 16-by-20-inch posters, too!  In each download, you’ll get high-quality .jpegs of the 8-by-10, 8-by-10.5, 11-by-17 and 16-by-20 -inch files as well as a .pdf of the 8-by-10.5-inch file which is perfect for binder covers!

**NOTE:  Even though the previews don’t mention the .pdf file, it IS included in the download.

Remember, all my files are for non-commercial, personal or Church use only.

Quick and Easy Holiday Idea: Christmas Word Art For Cards, Decorating or Gift Giving

With December approaching rapidly, it’s time to think about gift giving and Christmas cards.  We snapped our family Christmas card photo last week and now I’m busily turning it into custom-designed cards to send to friends and family.  This year I wanted to use the hot trend of subway art in my design and built a couple of different pieces of word art for our cards.  Today I’m sharing with you one piece of my subway-style Christmas word art!

The scripture I used always reminds me of Handel’s Messiah and while I was making the word art, I couldn’t help but sing that beautiful piece of music in my mind.  Whether you use my word art on your holiday greetings, print, frame and give to a friend or use for a scrapbook page or wall decoration, I hope it brings the true meaning of Christmas to your mind.

The Christmas word-art files I have for you today are:

One white word-art .png (As with all .pngs, it is just the word art, no black background.  I had to put the black background there so you could see it on this web page 🙂 .)  
 One black word-art .png  
 One 8-by-10-inch .jpeg with white word art and green background  
 One 8-by-10-inch .jpeg with black word art and green background  
 One 8-by-10-inch .jpeg with white word art and red background  
 One 8-by-10-inch .jpeg with black word art and red background  
 One 8-by-10-inch .jpeg with black word art and white background  

They are all saved as high-quality files, ready for uploading and printing as photos or using in your own projects!  For an inexpensive yet impressive gift or holiday decoration, simply upload one of the .jpeg files to your favorite photo processor and have it printed as an eight-by-ten-inch photo.  Then, frame it and display or give!  Easy!

Remember, my files are for non-commercial, personal or church use only!

And please, don’t share these files with others.  Send them here to my blog to get their own.  Thanks!

I’d love to see what you do with this word art, so leave a little note in the comments 🙂

Arise and Shine Forth: Posters

I want to express my thanks to Melanie at Sugardoodle.net for posting my 2012 Arise and Shine Forth word art and welcome all of you who found my blog from there as well as all of you who found me through Facebook.  Thanks for showing such kind interest in my work!

Here is the next in my series of Arise and Shine Forth designs:  Posters.  I’ve created them in four sizes:

8-by-10 inches:  For printing as binder cover sheets or to put in an 8-by-10-inch frame.

8-by-10.5 inches:  Also for binder covers and for printing on home printers, but not uploading as a photo.

11-by-17 inches:  Large enough for a table display.

16-by-20 inches:  The perfect size for putting on a floor easel.

They are all saved as high-quality .jpeg files and  ready-to-print.  Upload the 8-by-10, 11-by-17 and 16-by-20-inch posters to Costco.com or another photo processor for inexpensive yet professional-looking posters.  When uploading to Costco, make sure you don’t use their fast upload option–you will have a really poor-quality result–go with the full-resolution option instead.  You’ll love the quality of a photo print.  I do!

If you like these posters, but want them in a different color, I’ve also got them in pink, green and yellow–check out this post to download them.

I have also saved the 8-by-10.5-inch poster as a .pdf file–perfect for printing on your home computer.  For best results, I always recommend using photo paper and your printer’s highest-quality setting when printing at home.

You can download the original blue poster files here.

You will need to unzip them before you can use them.

As always, please don’t share these files with your friends. 

Send them to this blog to download their own.

These designs are for non-commercial, personal or Church only.

Thanks again for all of your kind support!  Enjoy!

P.S.  More great designs are coming!
