Font of the Week

Give me Some Sugar  is a nice curly font, perfect for a Valentine, if sweet is what you are going for. Hard to and cut, and those thin curves, unless they were really thickened up, miht be a struggle on a cutting machine with anything less than a sharp blade.

Happy Scrapping 2015!

 Fascinate  is a bit art deco, especially the Inline version.  Great for a title, I think, and I really like the numbers.  I have a font group JUST for fonts that have great numbers - even if I never use the letters for anything, the numbers are so lovely I keep it around just for them!

Simple Recipes:Mood Board (February 2015)
As before the mood board features trends, fashionable colours, starting point ideas, quotes and techniques. Don't forget to check out the clickable images on the board to see the techniques in practice. There's a link to a very cool video to make a textured painted background. The worksheet also contains sketches for a layout, card, art journal and planner divider page.
Take as much or as little from the worksheet as you like. Don't forget to share what your inspiration was when you upload your finished project/s. 
BlogBits is Back!

Welcome to the first BlogBits of 2015!  As you may have read, I have been having horrible internet issues, which put BlogBits in jeopardy, as I was unable to spend the kind of time online that is needed to compile the list.  Enter MiniOwner (Sue) who stepped in to save the day!  This edition is her selection, with maybe one or two additions from me.  Do give her a shout out in the forum - I really appreciate her help on this.  An itd might be really nice for you all to see choices from another picker for a change!  So her we go...



Layouts: We start this month with a beautiful page by butterbee made for Violaceous’ weekly challenge and, for the same challenge, a layout by elainevking caught my eye. Do you struggle with patterned papers as backgrounds?Jayni has blogged a super example of how to use them effectively and Jimjams shares a good idea for using positive and negative punch shapes. MiniOwner’s sketch challenge for February is up and running and lynncooper shares a super bold Christmas page. If you have New Year photos waiting for scrapping ScribbleMonster's page is a good one to scraplift - love the sprinkle of stars.

soojay Cards: You’ll get the bug with these stunning cards by soojay. Check out a really pretty card with butterflies by here be dragonssusibee's lovely assortment of cards, andEfemera's stunning card using scenic stamping. If it's bright and bold colours you like then you'll love this rainbow card byFifi-T. With Valentine's Day just around the corner how about this card by Mystik Nat? Have you started your Christmas cards yet? No, don’t throw up your hands in horror – this one by kittykatz3 is soooo cute!

truffle Other projectsRumtruffle has posted a clear pictorial tutorial on how to make 'something for the boys' and, while you're there, you might also like a peek at some of Rumtruffle's gorgeous art journalling. Purplybunny’s Filofax pages may take a while to load but they are well worth the wait. Our own Blue Brads are running a winter photo scavenger hunt which they invite everyone to join in with - you will certainly get inspiration from lindschick's photos. A little late for this year, so maybe for bookmarking, these sweet little pocket calendars by soojay, and, finally a nice variety of tags from an exchange that Virginia took part in.


 Downloads: Mary Anne has  Project Life journaling+calendar cards for download here .
