2 Questions:

1. Grammar:

Every night, Lady Lovely Locks  sat in the veranda of the castle and sang a lullaby. Her magical rainbow-colored hair glowed brightly that it could even be seen from every corner of the kingdom.

The story was written in past tense but I ´m wondering whether it is correct to use past tense for this section ( every night), I mean, should I write " Would sit, and ´would glow" or just stick with the past tense form.

2. Skill

I noticed all the printables are so beautifully decorated with the clip art, border, background, boxes, I tried to make mine like that with my "Microsoft word" but they ´ve never been that beautiful. Any tip, site, or software that you guys can recommend so I can beautify my printables?

Help me,
Sirhajwan

Every night, Lady Lovely Locks sat on the veranda of the castle and sang a lullaby. Her magical rainbow-colored hair glowed so brightly that it could be seen from every corner of the kingdom.
 
Using the past tense is OK here, but we sit on a veranda. The word ´balcony ´ would suit a castle better than veranda.
I would leave out ´even´ 
or to use ´even´:
Her magical rainbow-colored hair glowed so brightly that it could even be seen from the distant corners of the kingdom.
 
Have you tried the ´TEMPLATES´ link at the top of the home page? You may find what you need to make worksheets. If we use a template, we usually mention the owner of the template in the worksheet description. Templates are free to download. (no points used)
