I did it!

What did I do that has me so excited? I made an animated quote box banner for my TpT store, and if I might say, "It didn't turn out half bad for a first attempt!"

I have been interested in all the beautiful animated Quote Box banners that I have been seeing on TpT. More and more keep appearing. I knew a little bit about making animated images and was aware of a few websites that helped you make them for free but I wasn't quite sure of how much work was involved or what kinds of programs that I would need. So, I Googled how to make TpT animated banners. Most of the tutorials were for Photoshop or Adobe programs, neither of which I own. Finally, I found a tutorial by Sarah Griffin of Daughters and Kindergarten for making one in Power Point, my go-to program for creating my TpT products.

Easy, peasy to follow, Sarah's tutorial lead to a completed animated banner in less than an hour which is happily displayed here and in my TpT Store. If you've been considering an animated Quote Box banner, give Sarah's tutorial a try. It was a fun way to spend a dreary Saturday!


  1. Thank you, Angela for signposting Sarah's tutorial. I think I'll be having a go as I too have noticed many more animated banners appearing and they do look SO professional and a cut above. I also LOVE your new re-vamped blog header - it really suits your blog name - great design. Here's wishing you a lovely weekend :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. I will be on the lookout for your animated quote box banner! I hope the tutorial works as well, as if not better, for you. Sarah made a complicated process reality easy! Thank you for the kind words regarding my new blog design. Blogs Fit for a Queen did a fantastic job, IMO, and were so nice to work with. BTW, I know you will appreciate one little personal touch I asked the designers to include in the design... did you notice the desktop image on the laptop on the desk? Those are my two fur babies, Daisy and Lulu.

      Have a great week,

    2. Oh what a neat idea - they're lovely :)

  2. I did it too!! Might need to adjust size of banner - mine has come out a little small but it is up there - an animated quote box!! Thank you so much for posting about this - it has been SO useful :) Have a great week, Angela.
