GraphicStock - Unlimited Downloads Unlimited Possibilities {Giveaway}

Some of my favorite kinds of projects are DIY. I am constantly saving graphics and icons that I find because I want to use them for something around my house. So that is one of the reasons I am SO excited to share GraphicStock with you today.

GraphicStock has over 250,000 graphics, icons, vectors, the possibilities for creativity is endless. Creating graphics and pictures for my blog is something that I do every single day. With almost every post I share I am making some sort of picture to use. And they don't have to be fancy to be effective. {Like the one below!}

Designing with graphic stock

Have you ever wanted to make a picture like the one above? Or maybe a birthday invitation? Decorations? Ready for me to show you just how easy it is?

You are going to start with finding the graphics you would like to use. Maybe a background and a couple of graphics?  Right now GraphicStock is giving you a {free} 7 day trial so that you can download images and create some of your own projects. Let's go see what we can find!


I use PicMonkey to do any editing or designing that I need to do. There is a free version that I used for a long time but now I pay for the Royal version because it is soo worth it. And PicMonkey is easy to use!


These are the items I'm working with below, all of which I grabbed from GraphicStock-

Graphic how-to

So start with uploading your background by clicking on edit and select your background image.

I stretched it to fit my square and then changed it to white then "faded" it until I could see through it enough to fit my liking.

Next, while still in the little butterfly section, I go up and select "your own" to upload my little swirly design. Place it where ever you want it.

Now it is time to add text. So click on the Tt and pick your font.

And then look at that... You just made your own picture. Make sure you resize it to fit your needs and then you are all set to share!
