Photo Frame Templates

Want to know How to create a Product Template? at Zazzle? That link is to the official tutorial. It is actually quite simple once you read the instructions. That isn't always the case, is it? LOL. Personally, I didn't wander around enough to see what a template looks like and so I made a few photo frames that people could customize on their own but have that template label that makes the products look more user-friendly and inviting to potential customers that aren't as comfortable using the Zazzle system to create products and don't even want their own Zazzle store.

But here is a new version of a Photo Frame Magnet for new mothers to show of their new baby. It is a cute baby shower gift. I like the pastel color design.



Their system for makes it very easy for users to add their image to the tempates. With just a few clicks, here we go...

The origins of Evolution

"I think I need a shave today"

I have not tried Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program) yet. I was about to one day because I found a user on deviantART that had lovely artwork and freebies and tutorials, but the moment I went to their personal a virus attacked my computer. I'd have figured a site as big as deviantART would get rid of users that use their service to send new victims off the site. So, I'm looking for safe places to visit now.

The Thunder Spirit Poster

Earlier this spring I found some thunderheads building in central Nevada. If you haven't seen the movie called Dreamkeeper yet, it is a must see. The movie shares a handful of Native American legends, wrapping them around the lives of a family working out the hurdles life throws at us. One of my favorite stories within the movie was "Legend of She Crosses the Water and the Thunder Spirit." This fantasy photograph reminds me of the Thunder Spirit's realm.

Moroccan Tile Keds Shoe

Walk for Women's Empowerment!

I found a great Zazzle gallery thanks to A Lens a Day. Those Moroccan Tile shoes are my favorite to date among the shoes at Zazzle.

Rock of Ages Poster

Rock of Ages Poster by annaleeblysse
Original Colors

This design was digitally "repainted" from a vintage 1899 lithograph. The original image was from a theatrical poster for Uncle Tom's Cabin and was subtitled "Rock of Ages".

Vote Darth Vader '08 Poster Print

The Vote Darth Vader '08 Poster Print is another favorite around Zazzle. It seems to me that the Darth Vader for '08 is their most popular design right now. It has to be the "Together We Can Rule the Galaxy" theme. LOL.

Fluorescence Poster by digitalblasphemy

These glowing blue mushrooms are so cool! This poster was in Zazzle's advertisement about their 15% Off Posters sale. It is no suprise that I'm not the only person that counts this among my Zazzle favorites.

Print: Starry Pathway

Aquavel's Starry Pathway fractal art is one of my favorite designs at Zazzle.

There are also shoes available that are definitely on my wishlist.
