I have had people ask me what can be done with Artisan 5 (and now Artisan 6!), other than digital scrapbooking. They often feel that they want a program that is very versatile, and can justify the cost. I have used it multiple ways.
My granddaughter had a school project where they had to write a letter as if it was someone on the front, based on their reading of “The Thin Red Line”. I had her write her letter, then we put it on an 8 ½ x 11 sheet, put a parchment paper as background, redid the letter in the Black Jack font, shaded the edges, added some “dirt” spots, put it in a page protector and sent it to school with a note that it had just been found in an old trunk. The teacher got a kick out of the originality and Micayla had some fun with a school assignment. Unfortunately, I no longer have a sample of that.
I made labels for the bottles of Bourbon Vanilla that I made and gave as Christmas gifts one year.
I made the lined paper for guests to sign for my husband’s memory book at his Celebration of Life. I printed on heavier cardstock so it would be more substantial. It sounds like a simple thing, but one can’t find lined paper on heavier stock as it is all like school notebook paper.
I made package labels for Christmas.
I make all my fliers for my crops, and the name tags that coordinate with it.
Recently, during this current Covid19 crisis, I made signs for all the delivery people. I put them on the front porch bench and put a bottle of water on each one, so I could offer some support for all the hard work they are doing.
In my opinion, Artisan has really added depth and helped my ability to create projects that are original and decorative.
