Font of the Week

 Nickainley  is a bit scripty and nicely connected, so it could work well cut out, especially if you fatten it up or BOLD it.  Not sure about the little loop on the lower case R and how that might work but give it a go and let us know.  Might be a touch od the juvenile side for weddings, for example, but could work well of a sentiment.

Simple Recipes: Mood Board (April 2015)
Leo says:
The mood board colours this month are a mix of pastels with a bright zingy orange so have a go at mixing different pastels with one brighter shade. There are lots of interactive links on this months' board so remember to try out the clickable images.  
Find out more in the Simple Recipes forum! 

GORAL  is a full font family.  Be warned, when you download the RAR file, when unpacked it will include MANY versions of this font (thin, light, wide and heavy in regular, serif and wide styles). There are also a number of files you can simply delete (svg, woff and eot files) but I think I counted 50 files opening in total.  I like it a lot, personally, and think it's worth it, but see what you think...
BlogBits (March)

Jake_s_mum Layouts: Welcome to April's Blog Bits which we kick off with a page by Jake'smum, super bold colours which are right up my street. Next up CoventryAnn's page caught my eye as she has used stains on Kraft with fab results. Soojay has been using up scraps to make a delicious page - I love the bunting and the big white heart. A nice idea here by Jimjams to use punched shapes to make a page border and a nicely uncluttered multi-photo page, to boot. Some (sort of) Project Life inspiration here from Sian and, last but not least for LOs, MiniOwner's monthly sketch challenge .





Cards: I absolutely fell in love with these cards byefemera. A bit late for Easter, I know, but this dizzy bunny of MystikNat's will make a cute new baby card, too.Susibee is brilliant at keeping up with my blog challenge to Beat the Christmas Rush; will you join in too? How about some really pretty stamping and masking, by here be dragons? And, to finish the card section with a bang, a stunning exploding box shared by Laura Godfrey. Did you see what I did there? Laura has been in touch to let us know that the card is actually a design by Scrapdolly for The Great Scheme of Things blog and you can see that here !



whoopidoings Other projects: If you are looking for a new technique visit whoopidooings' blog and see how she made this gorgeous tag with Windsor Newton Ink and a sprinkling of sea salt. My Envelope Punchboard is my number 1 favourite piece of kit at the moment so I can't resist showing you a giftbox used by Misteejay to demonstrate its versatility. MaryAnne has a printable pdf of filler cards for us using a super unusual font and Alexa has done a great job on some templates for photobooks. If you like to hoard empty boxes take a look at elainevking's gorgeously decorated iphone box - only one of a few fab projects on her blog post. And, finally, bet you'll be as envious as I am ofefemera's visit to a Kate Crane workshop - Effie's makes are just stunning.
