Flat ‘n Fabulous

Couldn’t wait to show off these pretty and simple cards using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz and the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart.

More on these two cards coming soon, including how I matched Close to My Heart’s Heavenly Blue perfectly with the delicious shimmer of LSG’s products.


Flat cards don’t have to be boring! Adding shimmer and shine really perks things up. Use embossing powders, Glitz glitter gel and dots of Liquid Glass with Prisma Glitter. Ooooh! Shiny!

Nine Fabulous Free Grunge Fonts

Friday, December 2, 2011

Free fonts are like potato chips, you can’t stop at just one. How about nine grungy, messy, destroyed fonts? If you can’t get enough of the distressed look, these are for you!

font 3rd man

3rd Man available at Bold and masculine, try it on an outdoorsy camping page.

font 100th time

For the 100th Time available at Kevin & Amanda. Ransom note with a bit of whimsy. In bright multi-colors this would be adorable on a kid’s birthday party layout.


font jamaisteve

Jamaistevie available at Youthful and fun, perfect for a teen page.


font laundromat

Laundromat 1967 available at fontshark. Artsy, individual. Like a one-of-a-kind friend.


font pookie

Pookie available at If you love the “fortune cookie” strips for journaling on layouts, this font is readable even when small, but adds a touch of style with the slightly eroded look.


font projectY

Project Y available at Font River. This font screams teen boy and extreme sports. Think snowboarding, shooting hoops and skateboarding.


font webster

Webster available at Another journaling favorite, easy enough to read, but still plenty of character.
