Layout a Day for a week next week

Hello!  MiniLOAD starts next week and the theme is Scrap the Rainbow!   You can see a sneak preview in my Scrapbooking Challenge Group.

The purpoase of Mini Layout a Day is to create at least one layout per day for just one week.  It could inspire you to keep going!  The theme and prompts are to help give you ideas or a jumping off point for your layout.  However it’s mostly about getting those layouts done, even if it’s off prompt.  You can pocket-scrapbook, digi-scrapbook or use paper – it’s totally up to you!

This year’s miniLOAD starts on July 13th (in just 5 days)!!

Font Lovers Unite!

Fonts are so fun and a great way to enhance our scrapbooking layouts.  I’m often asked about fonts and where to find them.   Here’s some of my go-to places.

  • What the Font!  Have you ever wondered what a specific font is?  This is a great tool that helps to identify fonts from an image that you upload.
  • Best Fonts!  There are tons a great places to find fonts.  Once you know the name of what you’re looking for, just search for that and see what comes up.  Here are the websites that I trust and use:
    • DaFont
    • The Hungry jpg – lots of freebies here and often with both personal and commercial use licenses.
    • Font Bundles – another site with lots of freebies!
    • Kimberly Geswein makes fonts and has great resourses on her website.  You can also download all her free fonts in a single download from here.
  • I also have made my handwriting into a font using Your Fonts.
  • I recently learned about iFontMaker for making your own fonts.  It’s only available for Apple or Windows systems.

As I learn about more, I’ll continue to add to this post.  Comment with your favorites!

Saving Layouts Directly from Artisan to Forever

It’s the middle of another Layout a Day month and I’ve had an epiphany!  When I save my layouts to upload to the gallery, why not also save them (at full resolution) to my Forever Account?   And so I have now been taking the extra 1-2 minutes to permanently save my layouts as I finish them every day.  After LOAD, I’ll make this part of my routine when I finish an album.  It’s the best way to ensure that the layouts are Forever saved to my account.  Additionally, they then become accessible from my mobile device through the app.  Win Win!

Here’s how you can save your layouts from Artisan directly to your Forever Account.

  • From the project, click File.

  • Share to Forever.

  • Choose the page(s) to be uploaded.

  • Select the album (or make a new one)

  • Login to your account.

 

Are you running out of storage?  Or are you wishing you had Artisan?  Both are on sale this month!  Login or Create your free account (and get 2GB storage and a $10 coupon) and then see all the Deals for this month.
