There’s quite a few creative opportunities happening this weekend – check ’em out!
Starting today at 1pm (but truly a go at your own pace event) is my friend Melissa’s Tropical Paradise Virtual Open House. She’ll have creative instruction, games and prizes! Join her VIP Group for all the details.
Tomorrow at 10am I’ll be teaching how to use Forever Historian’s Album Planner feature. I love using this, especially for my vacation books! All the info is in my VIP Group under Events.
All weekend Creative Memories is hosting a Virtual Crop. They typically provide a variety of sketches and ask to see your layouts, using CM products (paper or digi). The event is run on Facebook in their Virtual Crop Group. If you’re looking for CM Supplies, I’d be honored is you selected me as your Advisor while shopping.
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)!!

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:
- 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!
