Crafters use a variety of embellishments in their craft projects. Because stickers are so easy to use and so versatile, they are especially popular among crafters. Usually crafters are limited to the stickers available in their local stores, via mail order or the web. If a crafter likes the clown from one sticker and the baseball player from another sticker, the only option is to grab the scissors and cut & paste. But that is not the case any more. While surfing the web a few days ago, I discovered a software program that I just fell in love with. I spent the entire weekend designing my very own stickers using The Logo Creator software.
The Logo Creator was developed by Marc Sylvester. This software comes in 9 editions (versions) and more are on the way. Each edition is theme based and is a stand alone program. However, additional editions can be added as plug-ins to expand the image collection of the main program. I used the Cartoon Edition and the Company Mascot Edition to create my stickers. Each edition of the program comes with 26 professionally designed sample projects to give your creativity a jump start. From these samples, you can then begin adding more design elements, removing design elements and manipulating each element in many ways. On the other hand, you can also start with a blank page.
One of the stickers I created this weekend was an announcement of the birth of my new niece. I first started with a blank page. Then I chose the image from the program that I wanted to build my design around. I chose the funny frog. At least that is what I decided to call him. Then I started to manipulate the funny frog in several ways.
