6 Pretty Font Pairings for Your Next Silhouette Project

Earlier this year, in March, I had the honor of writing a guest post for Melissa Viscount on her website (one of my all-time-favorites!) The Silhouette School Blog.

How do I resize my mockup for Etsy?

There are a few quick steps you’ll need to take to prepare your listing image for it’s eventual home – in this case, your Etsy shop. Once you get a lovely mockup purchased and downloaded and all set up (it’s like decorating a dollhouse – so fun!), then you need to think about saving the image to the correct size for where you’re going to use it. If it’s going on Instagram, it’s a square, and on Pinterest, probably a tall skinny image, but for Etsy there are some basic dimensions to keep in mind.

How to make a textured printable in Photoshop

I have always loved the look of weathered signs, aged furniture, and roughed up edges. Whenever I craft with paper, I always have sandpaper on hand so I can add texture around the edges and corners of my final piece. The design world of late has been all about flat design with solid colors and no texture, and that’s great for web display but I miss the tactile look that textures provide!

So I’d like to share my method for adding texture to a printable (or really any design) in Photoshop.
