Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

Remember how I mentioned last week that spring was finally here? Well, Mother Nature had a surprise for us! We got 20 inches of snow on Wednesday. (Yes, you read that right, 20 inches of snow. In mid-April.) Fortunately, the temperatures are supposed to be in the mid 50s and higher for the foreseeable future so the snow won't last long.

This week's fun font is NeoRetroDraw. If you've been looking for a 3D font, this is a great choice. The download includes three styles, two of which are shown here: a 3D outline font, a regular fill font, and a shadowed regular font. Lots of possibilities with this one.
You can download the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

I feel pretty comfortable writing it (finally): Spring is here! Last Friday, I had to deal with 10 inches of fresh, wet, heavy snow. This week? It's gone, all gone! We even hit 70F this week and it was absolutely glorious.

Before I get to this week's font, a quick reminder that there's a Spring Cleaning Sale taking place this weekend at Scraps N Pieces. Almost everything in the store is 50% off. You can see more about it here.

This week's fun font is Skratch Punk. It's a great choice for those projects that need a bold, distressed font.
You can find the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

Remember when I wrote that it was starting to feel like spring? Apparently Mother Nature had one more snowstorm in mind for those of us in Minnesota. I'm trying to look at the positive side of it: it won't last long because we're expecting temps in the mid-50s by Sunday and throughout next week. And, given the droughts we've had the past couple of years, the extra snow will help ease drought conditions. Oh, and it's a good excuse to skip to the gym. I can shovel snow for my workout instead!

Enough about snow. Let's move on to this week's fun font, shall we?

This week's fun font is Sofadi One. It's a chunkier font with soft edges and features unusual curves to some letters (as shown below). The font includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers, punctuation and special characters.
Creative Team member Steph used the font in creating her signature for the April Siggy Challenge at Scraps N Pieces. Her signature was created using my New Beginning kit.
The font change be downloaded here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

April at Scraps N Pieces

Happy April!

Mother Nature is being a tease in some parts of the U.S. and Canada--giving us a couple days of warmer temps followed by cold and snow. Pretty soon she will decide to stick around for a while and we can kiss winter good bye.

The designers at Scraps N' Pieces have a bunch of great products for you this month. If the weather's bad, you'll be able to enjoy your time inside working with these goodies. If the weather's nice, grab your laptop or tablet and find a park bench, deck chair, or table and enjoy them that way.

This month's store collab kit is Head in the Clouds and is perfect for pictures of spring with your loved ones. This beautiful collection of elements, papers, alpha, templates, and quick pages will keep you coming back to use it over and over.
