Step 2 – Add Text

On the very far left you have some icon options. The Tt option is for Text. Select that option and then find your favorite font. It might not be easy – there are so many to choose from!

NOTE: PicMonkey is free to use and download, however there is a membership for $4.99 per month that allows you access to some extra fonts and other things. Anything with a little crown beside it is included in the membership and you can’t use it without paying for the membership. Everything I used in this tutorial is free at the time I created it.

Look for the perfect images for your project, and then use them on PicMonkey by selecting the Butterfly icon and the clicking on Your Own at the very top.

Printables Hack for Moms

If you like printables, then you probably go through a lot of ink. I just found a great “hack” for you then. HP started something called Instant Ink which lets you subscribe to an ink service. Instead of running out of ink at the worst moment, or spending a small fortune on all the ink cartridges – now you can get in sent directly to you for a very small fee every month. It starts at $2.99 a month (that’s the plan I’m on). You can learn more on their website.
