Font of the Week

Shumi is big and bold and interesting, LOTS of samples on the display page here & great for a title.  Should cut well and might even be easy the hand cut without a machine.

 Another fairly plain one, Palitoon  is a little more handwritten with some interesting descenders, esp the g and the Q/q. I also really like the shape of the numbers.  Also font Squirrel so free for commercial use!

BlogBits (May)

craaftzboutique_600_x_584_Layouts: An adorable vintage layout from craftzboutique starts our June Blog Bits. Elainevking very successfully took herself out of her comfort zone with a multi-photo page in response to a challenge here on UKS and some zesty pages from jimjams show how to incorporate bold and bright into your scrapping. If you are wondering about dabbling with digi take a stroll trough scrapdolly's blog - she does digi with style and if you like a sketch challenge (or just a sketch) to get your mojo working check out these two blogs, littlechubblies every Sunday and MiniOwneron the first of each month. Interesting layout and post by Sian here. And our final layout, a page to make you smile by sutty


Cards: I'm seeing 'super heroes' everywhere at the moment
and this card by Mystic Nat really caught my eye. Always on the lookout for 'dark' ideas for my Goth niece I was pleased to find these Gorjuss cards bykatylamb which fit the bill perfectly. You will definitely say 'wow' when you see this amazing exploding cupcake box by elainevking andbutterbee has made two delicious cards for one-year-old twins.
Other projects: I love this little sewing kit by littlechubblies which would double up as a card for a sewing friend. There are some stunning ATCs on soojay's blog and MaryAnne has me intrigued with the art of bookfolding. Have you got crafting tools gathering dust? CoventryAnninspires us to dig out an unloved Bind-it-all with her home-bound scrapbook. In a recent swap I was the lucky recipient of one of these fabulous matchbooks by susibee. A filmstrip cutting file from Dan99 - so useful.Misteejay takes us into the world of grown up colouring and, to finish with a flourish just look at ScribbleMonster's planner! Mary Anne has some planner pages to download as well.  And here you can see another planner example from CannyCrafter.
