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.

  • Week One 
  1.  monthly HOUSE challenge  
  2. Blog Bits (monthly - Week One) will appear on the Home Page (Click here to see the archive )
PLEASE NOTE!  Team PL will always run a month behind - so the entry for JANUARY photos will appear in February.   

I've added a link to the ARCHIVE for each Home Page item - that way, if you want to go back and look at the past posts for any section you can easily do so!

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...

Russo sans

I am always looking for a big and bold font that is a little different.  I like Russo Sans  for the odd curves that give it a more playful feel - well, to me anyway. Otherwise it is big and bold but sadly no lower case.
