Another Great Site for Word Clouds

I recently posted a reminder about the Wordle site for making word clouds that you can use for various cards and projects.  I started looking around for other sites and I found one that you should definitely visit and use to try making some word art. 

This site is called "Tagxedo" and it has lots of interesting options.  For the image at the top of this post I used the description of the Cricut Imagine machine from the website as the text.  (Just click on any image to make it larger).

You can change the font and the orientation of the words and make another cloud.  Just keep spinning the various options until you find one you really like.

There are many color themes to choose from and you can even do your own thing and choose all custom colors for your cloud.

Another nice feature is the ability to fit the words to a shape.  Here is a simple heart (in another interesting font and color palette).

The shapes give an interesting twist and there are lots of stock shapes to try.  This elephant is filled with words relating to Mother's Day that were used for the site example.

You can even upload your own shapes to be totally creative.  I tried it with a Cricut shape from the Lovely Floral cartridge using my blog url as the text source.  The possibilities are truly endless.

The Tagxedo site is HERE.  There are also three blogs connected to the site.  I am fascinated by the portraits that appear in the gallery on the main site and in the Celebrity Tagxedo blog.  Here are the links to the blogs.

I started out intending to make a word cloud for Father's Day.  I still haven't done that - I was having too much fun just trying some of the many options.

I hope you are having a great weekend - it rained here and since it was Graduation Day at the high school the ceremony had to be held inside.  It also turned very cold - from nearly 100 degrees a few days ago to the mid 50s today - will the weather ever be "normal" this year?

  5. I remember bookmarking Wordle when you posted about it and now I'll bookmark this one. I'm thinking a Father's Day card would be a great time to try them out! TFS
