So chalenge #3 in December will be all about Alpha!

You are going to make your own and it is very easy to do using SBM

If you dont have any "Fat" fonts it is very easy and free to download some, juat go to google and type in free fat, wide or big fonts and you will find some great ones. These will be the best to use in this circumstance.

If you are unsure how to add them to your fonts folder in windows here is how you do it.

Open c drive
open up windows folder
open up fonts folder
then drag and drop the unzipped font you downloaded into the fonts folder and you have a new font ready to use in SBM.


Now for this excercise I want the alpha to be the star of the page, you can insert it in some embies and it can be a signature, like the one I did, or you can make a whole page and have the alpha in there it is up to you, heck be adventurous, do both!

So to make your alpha what you need to do is

select the Add caption to page tool
Choose the font you want
Go down to fill then style, using the drop down tool select image/pattern
Go to select image and a box will appear and I want you to go to browse
Then your computer will come up and you need to select the kit you have chosen to use and find the background papers (so find the folders where your kits are)*
So choose a background paper you like and click on it, press ok and it will insert the background in your letter.
If you want you can go to advanced and make an outline around the font too.


* If the kit you are using is in your sbm gallery, you will find them in
My documents - scrapbook max 2 - gallery - images - backgrounds

The easiest way to make all your letters is to do the first one then copy and paste and change the letter and keep doing that till you have them all.

Have a bit of fun with them make some bigger, smaller and overlap them.....I don't want to see any all neatly in a row lol spaced evenly.....I will make you do it again otherwise

So now it is time to go have some fun!!
