Fun, Free Text for Frog Buddies!

Froggie Fun with

Bonnie’s new Frog Buddies set is so adorable! I’ll show you how I created some free text you can use for fun projects!

There are several good design editing software programs out there. I happen to use Embrilliance but you can probably do much the same, as far as creating text, in other programs as well.

Start by opening Frog Buddies 2 in your editing software.

Click on the Create Letters icon. I chose Block text and selected Text on a Circle. Type in the top half of the text – A Frog is Just a Prince. It arches above the design.

For the bottom text, Waiting for a Kiss!, do the same as was done with the upper text but also check the Place on Bottom box. That arches the text underneath the design. Center text boxes and position them equal distances from the design.

The text is a bit small, so I selected each of the top and bottom text blocks and changed the font to Comedy. Both Block and Comedy texts come with the Embrilliance program.

Now the text is too large for the 200x360 (8x14) hoop. Embrilliance recommends not changing text and design sizes more than 20 percent. I reduced this text to 85 percent and it fits within the 200x300 (8x12) hoop.

The lettering in the lower arch text is pretty tight, so I can open up the letter spacing with a slider.

The finished product looks pretty good. Make sure you save the file with a new name to preserve the original design. Be sure to save both the stitching and working files. By saving the working file, you can go back and make adjustments without starting over.

You can download the free text file for 8x12 hoops here. Frog design is not included. Have fun!

    Sheryl—The text is a separate free file that Debbie created. You can get it by clicking on the link for it in the last sentence in the post above and adding it to your cart like a purchase (but it’s free).
