Font of the Week

Acryle  is a very pretty script font, quite curvy and bouncy.   Nice it has upper and lower case! It is labelled For Personal Use only, so fine for your layouts and mini-books or for card sentiments, not OK, for example, for wedding invitations or cards you will sell.

BlogBits (August 2014)

Here is the round-up of inspiring blog posts from July 2014!

P1170190%232Layouts: Starting with sketches and challenges, Be sure to pop to the Summer Scrapbooking Challenge forum. PLENTY of time to finish as you have until the end of September! And Mini-owner has her August sketch up and ready to inspire here . If you missed it, you can still find the challenges from the ATDML Cyber crop here and although hard to pick one to highlight, I really like the Hyde Park Corner layout here . And did you see SJ Crafts Start to Finish challenge? Start here .

I enjoy reading Sian's posts  bout her layouts as much as I like looking at them. And Tracie (for Sarah's Cards, now Hey Little Magpie !) has a nice post, revisiting old favourites, with a few layouts, all so cute. And love kazzy1's layout  (left). I always like quilt-inspired layouts and this  one by Kirsteen is sweet as can be.


Cards: Nice variation  on the box cards at Wear craft. Like.  Back to the ATDML Cyber crop for Twisted Cards  - so cute, and instructions are in the PDF for you. Love the trees stamp Dan99 used on his card here . Pretty card  by soojay for Scrapology (see more cards  with the stamp line on the main blog).

What a simple sketch  for week 31 of the 52 card challenge, but oh my how it can  look so different.  See the simple one right, but pop to MystikNat's post here  to see her holiday version. And I guess I just can't avoid more Christmas related posts so will mention the Beat the Christmas Rush linky  at MiniOwners, if you are already deep into your Christmas card making...





Other projects: Fab lampshade  from efemera. While there, check out her wreaths ! (left) I was intrigued by the suggestion from misteejay of using loom bracelets  to hold mini-books closed.  I think this  is the thread she refers to in the post.







Tutorials, notable posts and Downloads: Having played with Thermomorph and had a blast, I was interested to see another "real world" application for it.  See how JimJams repaired her Big Bite  with a teaspoon of pellets.

Louise has some new printables  - start at the top and browse back till you see one you've seen before! How fab are Alexa's typewriter cards? Grab them here .

Icon Works

Icon Works  is a font full of plain outline icons.  It SAYS there is an SVG version but I can't get it to open - I'll be interested if you can.  The little images are fine for printing and will cut with machines that let you cut fonts.  Nothing earth shaking but cute, simple and usable.
