Font of the Week

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.

Simple Recipes (September 2014)
For September, Leo says:
The colours this month have been inspired by the 'going back to school/work' after the summer vibe. We've got a cloudy September sky grey, a soft hint of minty green and a vibrant school/office pencil yellow, (you know, those yellow pencils with the pink erasers).
Following the school/work theme the added ingredients for this month include using office/exercise book style papers and we're looking at current trends including the ever popular hint of metallic and the new trend of the return of the rub ons! The technique this month is home made paper pieced embellishments. I've included a cut file to use too for those of you allergic to fussy cutting! 
Find the PDF in the SR forum here
BlogBits from August

Fair warning - my in-laws are coming for October and there will be NO BLOGBITS that week.


Layouts: Laura Godfrey says it's an old layout  but I think it looks very up-to-the-minute. Love how the photo looks in the star. what an adorable doggie photo on this layout  from elainevking! Such a sweet photo and lovely layout  from Susibee - and congrats on the new grandbaby!

Love this one from Jimjams - a layout  using post cards cause the photos didn't please her.   And speaking of Post cards, Sian's post  ties in nicely. Lots  to see at sponsor Hey Little Magpie!'s blog. and not one but TWO double page layouts  from CoventryAnn. Lov the bigger banner on this layout  from sutty. And this school photo layout  is fab (seen left)

Sketch challenge from littlechublies here and by today you should see Sue's September challenge as well - here is the link to the August  one in case you missed it..


Cards: Pretty card  using Clarity stencils from tinaborder. Such a cute step-card  variation from MiniOwner, including a video link for the how-to. (seen right) Love this card , using die cuts folded for a 3D effect - for the Scrapology challenge by kazzy1.

Interesting card from Jimjams  using Tagxedo - not sure how it was accomplished - is it a dingbat?  Do tell...




Other Projects: Disney Countdown  calendar by lemonblossom - but so easy to tailor it to the countdown of your choice! Interesting post for the Pimp My Filofax challenge by Sponsor Sarah Hurley (seen left)  Sort of a Smash book, very cute! I blogged a way to make your own stamping plate  with stuff you may have around already.

 Efemera has some sweet Snowmen here .  Adorable. Cute treat boxes using the WRMK envelope punch board from Miniowner.  Nifty.





Downloads, tutorials and notable posts: Scrapdolly has both a link to freebies from Sponsor Dawn Inskip and a freebie of her own here . Louise has a new set to download here  - so cute (seen right) I added a huge collection of little tags and things in pastels here  and some PL cards as rintables or as SVGs here .

Scrappy apps  round up from littlechubblies - shame they aren't linked, but they should be easy enough to find. Sympathy for poor Dan99 - in plaster for a long time and no crafting.  But check out his templates  for download here - you know how much I adore the Wonky houses.  Grab them for Halloween projects...

Sugar Shock

Sugar Shock  is thin and playful, good for handwritten-look journaling and great for a kids page.
