Fun Font Friday


Did you have a good week? Mine's been OK. It seems summer has finally arrived--thank goodness! I love summer because there is so much to do: hanging out at a lake, farmer's markets, concerts in the park, cookouts, baseball games and more.

This week I'm featuring three retro script fonts, Rickles, Sacramento and Noodle Script. Please be sure to read and follow the designer's terms of use included in the download.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday and Happy Birthday to Me!

TGIF and happy birthday to me!

Yes, today's my birthday. What am I doing to celebrate? I'm headed to the Twins game tonight. The weather forecast looks beautiful (about 72F), the Twins are playing really good baseball these days and I get spend the evening with some of best friends, so it should be fun.

Also in celebration of my birthday, everything in my store is 40% off--including bundles. If you've had one of my products on your wishlist, now is a great time to pick it up. The sale runs through 11:59pm MT tomorrow.
This month, I've been featuring one of my favorite styles of fonts, retro. I've already featured some retro script and block letter fonts. Today I'm featuring three of my all-time favorite retro fonts (some of which have previously been featured on Fun Font Friday): Wisdom Script, Fontdinerdotcom and Lobster. Be sure to follow each designer's terms of use included in the download.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

Fun Font Friday and more


Did you have a good week? Do anything fun? Have any big plans for the weekend?

My week was OK. Spent a good deal of time outside last weekend cleaning out things in the garage, doing some yardwork, and visiting with my neighbors. The weather this week's been gorgeous and I've loved having the windows open to get some fresh air in the house.

Before we get to this week's fun font, I've got a couple of announcements for you.

First, if you missed picking up any portion of the On the Road Again Bits N Pieces, they're now available as either a kit or bundle. The kit includes the papers and elements; the bundle includes the papers, elements and cards. Both products are 40% off through the end of May.
Second, next week I'm the featured designer at the Scraps N Pieces store. It's also my birthday week and I'm celebrating in style. Everything in my store (including bundles) will be 40% off. I'll be doing an AMA (ask me anything) chat on the SNP store FB chat on Monday, May 11 at 3pm CT and I'm hosting the Featured Designer challenge in the SNP forum. You'll also want to keep your eyes on my Facebook page and blog as I'll have some special surprises for you throughout the week. Hope to see you at one or more of the events!
Let's turn to fun fonts, shall we?

This month's focus is on retro style fonts. Today I'm featuring three different fonts: Mouse Memoirs, KTF Roadstar and Maiden Orange. All three fonts are shown at 48 pt against a 12x12 background; KTF Roadster is a unicase alpha featuring only uppercase letters and punctuation. If you download them, please be sure to follow each designer's terms of use.

Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!

On The Road Again

Happy May Day! How is your iNSD weekend so far? Picked up any great deals? I'm hoping I'll get to do some shopping this weekend. I've had my eye on a few things and always like to add a few things to my design stash too.

This month's Bits N' Pieces palette was travel-themed. I usually know pretty quickly after looking at a palette what I want to do with it. That wasn't the case this time around. I thought about it, and thought about it, and thought about it some more. Then, one day I was listening to a friend's Spotify playlist and Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" played.

Instant inspiration!

In the spirit of that classic song, I designed a set of three products that you can use to capture your memories of a short drive or a long road trip.

First up, the paper pack. It includes 24 papers (18 patterned, six solid). Patterned papers include road signs, arrows, U.S. map, cameras, vehicles, tire tracks, floral, plaid, stripe, grid, chevron, dots and geometric designs.
The element pack includes 50 unique elements. Themed elements include road signs (caution, detour, railroad crossing, speed limit, interstate, stop), travel icons (food, gas, camping, restroom, phone), traffic barrel, tire tracks, car-shaped paperclip, luggage tag and word art (are we there yet, places to go, road trip, going places, on the road again and go, see, do). General element includes bows, ribbons, string, staples, push pin, stitches, flowers, leaves, buttons, frames, ricrac and tags.
For those who want a little extra space for journaling or are doing pocket pages, I also created a set of 3x4 cards. The card pack includes 10 3x4 cards in .jpg format. Included in the download is cards with bleed (3.25x4.25) for professional printing and a high resolution .pdf file for at-home printing.
Through Thursday, May 7, you can pick up any of these products for just $1 each. No coupon code needed.

Here's a look at the products in action. 
Head on over to the store now to take advantage of this great deal!
