Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

Did you have a good week? Do anything fun? any exciting news to share? I'm still in disbelief that August is almost over. The Minnesota State Fair started yesterday, which means the unofficial end of summer (Labor Day) is only 12 days away.

A quick note about Fun Font Friday: This feature is going to go on hiatus for a bit. I've got a ton of stuff on my plate right now. I love sharing fun fonts with you each week but am finding it harder and harder to find fonts I like as well. That, coupled with some new, more pressing demands on my time means something's gotta give. I hope to bring the feature back in the future, perhaps on an occasional basis rather than a weekly one.

For this final Friday in August, I'm sharing three of my all-time favorite Darcy Baldwin fonts with you. Me & My Shadow comes in three styles, only one of which is shown below. I frequently use it or Fan Girl for journaling on my pages or projects.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

How was your week? Did you do anything fun? Was it back to school time for your family? School doesn't typically start until after Labor Day around here, but I've seen a TON of fun first day of school photos from my friends on Facebook. Hard to believe it's that time of year already! Where did summer go?

Today's fun fonts are a set of three script fonts from Darcy Baldwin. They're all a little bit different and feature some some fun characters (like hearts) in addition to regular characters.

Have a great week and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

Did you have a good week? Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? My week was full of fun activities, including a Camp Cheesecake party and dinner with a good friend. Tonight, I'm off to the Guthrie to see one of my favorite musicals, The Music Man. I'm really looking forward to it as I haven't been to the Guthrie in quite a while.

A quick note that tomorrow is the third Saturday of the month which means Super Saturday Sales. Because it's back to school time, I've put all my School Days products on sale for $1 each. The products are perfect for back to school pics of you, your kiddos or your loved ones. The deal is only good on Saturday, so be sure you stop by and take advantage of it while it's offered!
This month's fun fonts are all creations from Darcy Baldwin. Last week I featured three handwritten fonts that were good choices for journaling. This week, I've chosen two outlined fonts that are good for page titles or word art. Vintage Find, shown below, includes two styles. The original is shown; the download also includes a distressed style.

Fun Font Friday

TGIF!

Did you have a good week or do anything exciting? My week's been pretty boring and I'm 100% OK with that. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity with something going on almost every day or night; it was nice to have nothing on my schedule this week.

A quick reminder before we get to this week's fun fonts that today is the last day to pick up any of the Country Boy or Country Girl pieces for only $1 each. They'll be sold at regular price beginning tomorrow.

It's a new month, which means a new theme for Fun Font Friday. This month, I'll be featuring the fonts of Darcy Baldwin. She has hundreds of fonts available on her personal site. They're personal use only but you can purchase commercial use licenses. This week I'm featuring three fonts that would be great for journaling on your pages: DJB Sissy, DJB All the Cool Chicks and DJB Miss Molly Brown.
