{Freebie Friday} Fotor: Free Online Photo Editor

Daydream-In-Color-Fotor-Lan-Su-Gardens

Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I’m excited to introduce Fotor, a free online photo editor. I played around with it and I just love all the options! The above collage was put together on Fotor. They have a variety of preset collage templates to choose from, but you can customize it from there! Want no white border? A different border? Filters? You can change it all!

The photos above for for Lan Su Gardens in Portland, OR. They are one of the venues we are looking at for the wedding. I just uploaded the pictures from my computer (you can also grab them from the web, your Facebook, webcam, Picasa, etc.) and dragged them into the template. I applied a warm filter to give it an instagram or vintage postcard look. Everything is super user friendly. You can then add text (all fonts installed on your computer are options). I used the font Lighthouse (for personal use) above.

There are also plenty of clip art options you can insert and you can even make personalized greeting cards!

What are you going to edit or create with Fotor?

{Freebie Friday} Mini Happy Birthday Garland

Daydream-In-Color-Angela-Hardison-One-Year-Happy-Birthday-Garland

It was the birthday of two of my coworkers last week and previous, so I’ve got birthdays on the brain! You may remember my garland bombing post. I still love doing this, but I was looking for some fresh ideas when I came across this adorable garland by Angela Hardison for her even more adorable baby girl’s 1st birthday (Photo above by Angela Hardison).

I wanted a mini cube friendly version of my own to surprise my coworker on her birthday. Be sure to check out the DIY Floral Monograms, which I paired with this garland on her wall.

{Freebie Friday} DIY Floral Monograms

Daydream-In-Color-Freebie-Friday-Floral-Monogram-Happy-Birthday-Lisa

I’ve been obsessed with flowers for the past few months now. I wanted to make something else fun for my coworker’s birthday garland bombing. Then it struck me, what better way to spell out her name than in flowers! Plus, luckily it’s flower week here! Stay tuned for the happy birthday garland freebie.

Daydream-In-Color-Freebie-Friday-How-To

Daydream-In-Color-Freebie-Friday-Floral-Monogram-How-To

Supplies:

  • Printer
  • Template
  • Copy paper
  • Tape
  • Foam board (I got mine at the dollar store) – You can probably get about 7-8 letters per board
  • A mix of small and big fabric flowers (I got mine at the dollar store) - I used 1-2 bunches for each letter, if you want to fill the whole letter with flowers plan on 2-3 bunches per letter. You can also use tissue paper flowers (DIY to come).
  • Exacto knife / Scissors / Pruning scissors (depending on how hard your fabric flowers are to cut)
  • Self healing mat or extra board to protect work surface
  • Hot glue gun or any strong glue
  • If hanging: Hang Tab template, Cardstock, Hole punch, String

Directions:

  1. Click on letter template to open. Decide what you want to spell out and print out those letters onto copy paper.
  2. Tape template onto foam board. Trim white parts of template if you’re trying to fit as many as possible on the foam board.
  3. Place self healing mat or an extra foam board on work surface to protect. Use the exacto knife or scissors (depending on thickness of board) to cut out letters.
  4. If using fabric flowers, cut them from their stems. Some fabric flowers and leaves can just be popped off their stems. I chose to pop off the leaves and hot glue gun them to each flower because I liked the green in the mix. It’s up to you if you want to use the leaves.
  5. Arrange flowers on your cut out letter.
  6. Once you’re happy with the look, hot glue gun the flowers down. Allow time for the glue to dry.
  7. If hanging, click on hang tab template to open. Print on cardstock. Cut along solid lines. Punch holes out at “X.” Glue as many as needed to top back  or sides of monograms. Allow glue to dry. Loop string through the punched holes and knot to hang or if hanging against a wall, just stuck the pin through the hang tab.

{Early Freebie Friday} Patterned Hearts

I know I know. Freebie Friday on a Tuesday? Well, I’m always at a loss when it comes to Valentine’s Day. It’s right after Christmas and right between both A & my birthdays. It’s so hard to think of so many gift ideas! Do you have this problem? I always end up opting for little sweet homemade gestures. A wakes up before me because he takes much longer to get ready (somehow he’s the girl when it comes to primping). Last year I surprised him with a card and banner posted on his bathroom mirror. I’m thinking of incorporating these patterned hearts this year. Maybe a trail with little reasons why he’s awesome on the back of each heart. I thought you might need a little boost with ideas too so I’m sharing early.

These would be cute strewn across a table any day of the year. Cute for even those un-valentine’s day peeps out there. When I was single, I used to hang out with my girlfriends on Valentine’s Day. It was always just as fun! Bring out those rom-coms!
