Since Labor Day is over, it's time to break out the fall decor.  Right?  Right?

(I may have been accused of putting fall stuff out too early, which is nonsense.  Must have all the fall things!)

Anyway, I got this darling file as a freebie some time back, and finally decided to print it out and frame it.

It's not free anymore, but you can purchase a copy here.  I'll show you how I use these files to make my own printable decor.

First, download your file and save it somewhere you'll remember it.

Then, open up Picmonkey.  I am a premium member but you don't need it for this tutorial. Choose "Design", then "Blank Canvas".

Next, choose your canvas size.  I'm eventually going to print this as an 8x10, so I choose 8.5x11.

Set your canvas, or background, color.  Most often I choose white, as I will with this design.  Hit "Apply" and you're good to go.

Next, you're going to import that design you downloaded.  Click on Overlays, which is the butterfly design on the left hand column.  Then click "Add your own".

You'll then navigate to your file and click open (not pictured).

This should bring up your design somewhere on your blank canvas.

At this point, you can play with your design, changing the size and placement, and sometimes even the color.  

Once you have it the way you want it, either "save" it, or "export" it.  This is kind of confusing.  If you save it, that means you want to come back and work on it later.  It's saving a copy to the Picmonkey hub.  If you export it, then you are saving it to your computer.  Let's choose that option so we can print it.

Name your file, choose your resolution (I almost always choose "Pierce), and export it.  This will let you choose a location on your computer to save it, and then you are done!

I love using Picmonkey to make printables, invitations, and more.  It's so easy and so many features are free.  And no, this is not sponsored in any way.  I just love Picmonkey!
