Well I have paintshop pro so no help there. But I know with PSP the easiest way to make it your own is to use a font and then lay the paper over it, then have it take the shape of the letters.
Here this might help

I made one in photopaint last week (check out the wordart challenge thread to see). It turned out really pretty but I don't know how to save it so that other's can use it. I guess they can right click on it... save the pic as...and use the magic wand tool to cut out the background. Does that make any sense?


Edited to add....turtlebug, I see that you did already check out that alpha that I made. Glad you liked it!

Yep, just remember to check the TOU if you plan to use someone else's papers. MOST designers do not allow you to use their products to create another product (quick pages, alphas, templates, word art, etc) if you plan to give them away or sell them. Of course, it's fine to do if you're just using it yourself for one of your pages... but you would need to make your own papers and/or any other supplies you decide to use if you'd like to give it as a freebie or sell it.

oh, boy, a lot of it is trial and error. I haven't really saved anything significant lately lol

Maybe I'll have some Alpha's to show by the end of this week we'll see! It really depends on how much time my kids will allow me to be on the computer! lol 4 little ones pull and tugging on your leg can kinda distract ya lol
