Fun Font Friday


How was your week? Hope it was a good one. I finally finished up some holiday decorating around my house, including the tree. I love the look of Christmas trees but after putting lights on it (1,440 of them), I now know why people buy pre-lit trees. I also did some holiday baking (melting moments cookies and Swedish thin bread) and attended the American Swedish Institute's Julmarknad last weekend. It was a really fun time and I was glad the weather was pleasant (30F).

If you missed out on the Bits N Pieces deal, I've put all of the Happy Holidays products on sale for 30% off through the end of the month.

The kit includes the paper and element packs for a total of 24 papers and 50 unique elements.
The bundle includes all three products (paper, element and card packs) meaning you get 24 papers, 50 unique elements and 10 cards.
Don't forget to pick up the free template I'm offering in the forums at Scraps N' Pieces. It will only be available through the end of the day Monday so act fast!
One last thing before I get to this week's fun font. I'm taking suggestions for fonts that are your favorites or that you'd like to see highlighted next year for Fun Font Friday. Got ideas? Leave a comment below or drop me a line via email (shelbellescraps {at} gmail {dot} com).

This week's fun font is Diner Skinny. It's an Art Deco, single case alpha. It's hard to tell from the preview below but the lowercase letters in the font include alternate looks to letters like A, K, M, W and Y (they're more rounded while the uppercase letters are more angled). It also includes numbers and common punctuation and comes in fourth widths (skinny, regular, fatt and obese); the example below is done in the regular width.
You can download the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday


Did you have a good week? Do anything fun? If you were able to get it, did you watch Peter Pan Live last night? I've never seen Peter Pan the musical before so it was all new to me. It was certainly an amusing way to spend the evening.

Before we get to this week's fun font, two quick notes. First, I'm currently hosting the template challenge in the forums at Scraps N' Pieces. The template is a teaser from a set I'm currently working on. Stop by the forum to pick up the template and take part int he challenge. (Image is linked to the forum.)
Second, you only have three more days to pick up my Happy Holidays Bits N Pieces products at just $1 each. The deal is only good through Sunday, December 7 so be sure to take advantage of this great deal.

This week's fun font is FingerPaint. This font is casual handwritten brush font. It's a great choice for those pages and projects that call for a font that looks like it was written by a child or one that is artistic. The font includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers, punctuation and European characters.
You can download the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

New release: Happy Holidays

Can you believe it's December 1st already? Where does the time go?

If you're at all like me, you're busy getting ready for the holidays--decorating, shopping and baking. Whatever it brings, I hope the holiday season is a wonderful one for you and your loved ones.

I fell in love with this month's Bits N Pieces (BNP) palette. With shades of blue, green, white and a pop of pink, it's a fun, festive palette for a holiday kit.

I created three BNP products this month. There's a paper pack that includes 24 papers (16 patterned, eight solid). Patterns include snowflakes, ornaments, sweater pattern, trees, dots, damask, plaid, herringbone and more.
The element pack includes 50 unique elements. There's a nice mix of themed elements (mitten banner, bell, candy, candy cane, evergreen, gifts, hat, lights, mittens, ornaments, scarf, snowflakes, snowmen, stockings, and trees) and general elements (arrow, bows, button, flowers, frames, leaves, ribbon, ricrac, sequin spill, star, stitching, string, tags and twine).
Some of you have told me you are doing pocket pages while others have told me that you need journal cards for recording memories or filling space on a page. No matter what your need, the card pack fits the bill. The pack includes 10 cards (eight 3x4, two 4x6).
Want all three?  You can get them for just $1 each today through Sunday, December 7. No coupon or special code needed. Head on over to my store now to take advantage of this great deal.

Fun Font Black Friday


Did you have a great Thanksgiving yesterday? If it wasn't Thanksgiving where you are yesterday, did you have a good Thursday? We had 21 people at the house for our Thanksgiving celebration. It was a fun time. Lots of food, football, family and fun conversation.

The day after Thanksgiving has become known as Black Friday in the United States. To celebrate, everything in the store at Scraps N' Pieces is 50% off today only.
Because it's Friday, that means it's also time for another edition of Fun Font Friday

This week's fun font is BlackJack. It's a retro script font that includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers, punctuation and European characters. It highly readable so it makes a great choice for your pages and projects.
You can download the font here.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!
