Create a Background using Samantha Walker's Par-Tay Thyme Font!

Good morning and happy Saturday!  Today I would like to share with you any easy way to create a background using Samantha's Par-Tay Thyme Font.

First you will want to choose the text style.  Click on the icon at the top right.  It is a capital A.  I chose Samantha's SW Par-Tay Thyme font.

Over on the far left side of your screen choose the Text icon ( a capital A also with a line on the side of it). This will allow you to start typing on your page.

Start typing in the words that you would like to have as your background.

Next, I copied and pasted my first line and filled up the page.  Do this by right clicking and selecting copy, right clicking again and selecting paste.  Just like what you would do in a word document.

Next you will want all of your lines of words to touch like this.  You will notice that the S's, P's and G's in Spring are touching.  

Now, I want to group them all together so they become one.  First right click and then select Group.  Now, you can't separate the image without ungrouping it.

Next, you will want to make sure your Cameo cuts out your background as a whole and not the individual letters.  To do this highlight the the background and click on the Weld icon located at the bottom left of your screen.  Look how your words connected and you have one complete background.

I want mine bigger, so I am going to highlight it.  Then using the small squares in the corners, I drug them out until I had the size I wanted.  

Finally, cut out your background!

Carefully peel it off your mat and adhere to your paper. 

Thanks for stopping in and I hope I have inspired you to try something a little different using Samantha's Par-Tay Thyme Font!  Until next time!
