How to create your Ancestor Trading Cards using the Fuzzy Ink Stationery PowerPoint Template. #familyhistory #tradingcard #video #tutorial

Are you ready to jump into PowerPoint with me for another look at the Ancestor Trading Card template? Join me while I put together a trading card for one of my ancestors. I can’t wait to show you how easy it is to add and adjust images. And how quickly you can format the text to tell your Ancestor’s unique story.

Over four weeks, these videos will take you from setup to production. In the second episode, I demonstrate adding content to the template. See the below list for an overview of topics I will be chatting about.

In the videos, I demonstrate the tips and processes that are also in the Guide. Along with the template file, you’ll find the Guide in the zip folder. If you have bought the template, that is. It’s currently only available from Etsy. The videos will step you through how I use the template, and I’ll share some tips along the way. After all, sometimes it is easier to watch than to follow written instructions.
