Font Friday: Pupcat

I have a couple different alphas based on this font, and I've been trying to find it for-e-ver. Then, surprise, just surfing one day - there it was. :)

Thankful Cards | Hybrid

Saying "thank you" never goes out of style, and with the Thanksgiving holiday here on Thursday, there is lots of thankfulness in the air.

Earlier this month, I participated in the ScrapMatters blog train with a printable card, and this week, I finished this one:

Font Friday: Sparkly

I've had this font in my stash for quite a while, and haven't used it... until now. With Christmas coming, it seemed to have just the right amount of fun and... well... Sparkle!

I did a quick project for my church using this font, making a layered heading. I simplified some of the sparkles to enlarge and embellish the title as well as the rest of a small flyer.

Font Friday: Birthday Edition & Free Word Art

In honor of my birthday on Sunday, I had to share this font!

This is just one of the AWESOME fonts available for free at!
They have tons and tons and tons of great handwriting fonts and larger "scrapbook" fonts.

Just for fun, I made a few birthday-themed word art pieces using Rebekah's Birthday and Pea Jack and Jane! Enjoy!

Font Friday: Sketchy

I guess it was about 6 months ago that I started seeing sketched fonts pop up in scrapbook kits... and I went a little NUTS. Here's a few I can no longer live without!

This was one of the first sketched fonts I went nuts over, when I noticed it used on several elements 
in the ScrapMatters Queen of Scrap kit. I was beyond excited, when I found it!
The obsession continues... this one was featured on The Daily Digi and started popping up 
ALL OVER the scrapbook galleries. I told my friend Sarah, "we're going to be able to date 
our layouts as having been created in 2010 because they use this font!" 
(Make sure you read the font info that comes in this download 
so you know how to properly finish your words!)
This is the latest in my sketched font collection. I have a bunch I haven't even used yet, 
but I just KNOW I'll find a good use for it... eventually!

Digital Scrapbook Day is coming!!!

Digital Scrapbook Day (DSD) last November is probably the point where I can say I became truly hooked on digi scrapping! Not to mention that it's one weekend of the year to stock up on supplies, because almost everyone is having a big, BIG sale!!

It's a great idea to do some pre-shopping and make your wish lists so you can shop quickly when the sale starts! Ready to do some pre-shopping? Here's some info on a couple of sales!

ScrapMatters is having a sale, with a bonus free kit with $20 purchase:

Here's a better look at the free kit, Many Thanks. Starting Saturday morning (8:00 am Pacific) there will be a HUGE blog train with freebie add-on's to this kit! (Really! HUGE - 49 stops planned so far!!!!)
