Increase your Blog Traffic Today - Create a Chalkboard Printable {and where you should promote it!}

Another surefire way to increase traffic to your blog is to Create a Freebie! Whether it be a graphic, digital stamp, or printable you will be amazed at the amount of traffic you will receive! Today I am going to show you how to easily create your own Chalkboard Printable!

As you may already know I have been making {and loving} free printables lately and now I want to teach you how to create your own Chalkboard Printables! It's a lot simpler than you might think!

But, before we get started I have a winner for a Custom Printable from the Subscribers to my Blog. 
The Winner is....................

"Creative Minded Momma"

Please Contact me so we can start working on your FREE Custom Printable!


Okay, so now let's get started! I will be using Picasa for my Photo Editing. You will need some sort of Photo Editing Software. Pic Monkey is also great choice.

First, you will need to download a Chalkboard Background. Save this to your Computer.

Next, you will need Chalkboard Effect Fonts. Da Font has a HUGE Library of FREE FONTS for personal use! Here are some of my Favorite Chalkboard Fonts. Links provided below.

And in case you were wondering the Chalkboard Font used for the Title? It is KR Frosted Cake


Once you have downloaded the Free Chalkboard Fonts that you like, open your Chalkboard Background in Picasa or your Photo Editing Software to create your own chalkboard printable!

If you want, you can edit the background by adjusting contrast, highlights, sharpness, clarity, etc. Once you have it how you like it, you will need to crop it. For my framed Chalkboard Printables I crop at 8x10 or 5x7. While Cropping determine if you want your Printable Landscape or Horizontal and adjust your cropping tool accordingly.

Pick your quote and play with the different Chalkboard Fonts until you get something that you love!
