Font of the Week

Alpaca  has two versions - one is a nice bold plain font, and the other is one with the open areas filled in.  Use either one.  OR, like in the sample,  you can layer them for a different effect.

Team Project Life (July downloads)

Sorry for the late arrival but here are Sarah's Team PL downloads for July.  You can find them, as ever, in the Digital and Hybrid forum as well as in the Project Life forum, in the pinned thread:





Termica  is one of those mixed-up fonts that have a quirky charm. Sadly, it's upper case only but if you are willing to work at it a little you couls always keep the initial letters one size and shrink the rest, for a mock upper/lower case look.  Not for journaling, really, but cute for a title or single word. 
Simple Recipes (July 2014)
Leo says:
The July Simple Recipe colours this month are a fun mix of sweet inspired colours and the technique idea gives them an on trend twist. 
Pop in to the Simple Recipes forum  to download the July 2014 Simple Recipes Worksheet.
As usual it's in PDF format so will work on your mobile devices too.  
BlogBits (July 2014)

Here is the wrap up of inspiring blog posts:



Layouts: I still love seeing layouts  in the 8.5 x 11 format and kazy1 does them wonderfully.  See more  at Sarah's cards.  Laura Godfrey has a layout  of her mum and a photo of her DD.  Why is it it sometimes takes a photo to show the similarities across generations?  So interesting!

I always like seeing the different versions of the Conterfeit Kits UKS members share.  Here  is one from elainevking and one  from Jimjams.   Sketch challenge  for July from mini-owner. And Niki from Being Scrappy has a new sketch video  that I think you will really like.

Love Jimjams photo a month layout  - great idea to get at least a bit of life documented! Great photo on this layout  from sutty.  See it left - doesn't it make you smile? Susibee has used some of the new SU PL cards on her layout here . I like the square edges! Pretty layout  from scrappy Pat.  Love the colours.  And a nice holiday layout  at SJ Crafts.  And from the Quirky Kits blog hop, layout from Sian.  So cute.  




Cards: I usually like the Less Is More card posts and this  one by scrapmate UK is simple and sweet. At the opposite end of the spectrum is badgerleader's box card (see it right).  Love it. You can see a big selection of box cards at Scrapology .

Fab card idea  from Jimjams - so simple but so adaptable!Susibee has been prolific this month so here she is again with a triple-stamping tutorial ! And love the cameo/silhouettes on this  card from MystikNat.  Perfect for a wedding.




Other Projects: Cute mini-album  from susibee. And I love this colourful riot of a mini (left) from jane 3865! a mixed media piece  from here_be_dragons. Love Dan99's Soviet Circus tag .   People must be thinnking about teacher gifts, and this easy one  from sutty could be done quick - and it would be useful so perhaps appreciated more than cute-but-useless gifts?  Given the heated discussions of past years I shouldn't go there.... :) Do you make and trade ATCs? If so, my display hangers  may appeal.



Downloads, , Tutorials and Notable Posts: There is a discussion in the forum about dies so I was interested to see this  unique style of die on littlechubblies blog.  Nifty. OK, so this is a JULY post so should wait a month, but I am adding it anyway - misteejay and her post  on coloured pencils on Kraft. SarahK reminds me of the acetate and tissue paper technique .  I still love it, and you might too! And while there, check out the stairstep card too. Interesting post  from CannyCrafter - crafter or stash organizer?  So useful I couldn't wait till next month - efemera's tutorial  for making a frame from A4 card.  You'll need to look right to see what I mean....

Couple of quick downloads from Louise  (summer 6x4 cards) and me  (2 words and nky splotches)
