Free Font Friday!!!

As you may know, I leave today for a weekend crop. I'm all packed since yesterday (see video) so I could drive straight to the hotel from work. I'm so excited but before I left I decided to give you a little treat. Here are three fabulous fonts that I sure will enhance your journaling. They're really cute script, handwritten fonts. Follow the link to download via Google Docs. If you do use them in your projects, please share with us. I'd love to see.

Packing for a Crop

t's finally here! I've been waiting for this weekend for a while now. It's the Winter Wonderland Weekend Crop hosted by the super friendly, Stephanie and Norma of Scrap-A-Doodle Doo.

As I was packing for my crop, it occured to me that I should whip out my new camcorder and make a video, so here it is. I show you how I like to pack my projects to maximize time while scrapbooking at these events.

Please bear with me, I'm totally new at making videos. Hopefully, I'll get the hang of it soon.

No, I did not forget Basic Grey, how could I? They're everyone's favorite, but they have been so hush hush about their new releases! This just in and so I just had to extend the sneek peeks one more day. But I'll be posting a fun new project very soon!

All I can say is WOW! Right away I can tell Green, Kioshi and Max & Whiskers will be my favorites!

Cosmo Criquet Sneek Peak

To wrap-up our week of sneek peaks, I chose Cosmo Criquet. Their new line is characteristically fun, funky and whimsical.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to get my hands on all the new goodies that will be hitting our LSS soon. I guess that's why my stash keeps getting bigger and bigger so I just tell my hubby the truth; PP makes me happy!

Little Yellow Bicycle Latest Releases

I'm a huge fan of Little Yellow Bicycle and was excited to see their newest releases. They really thought about everyone this time. As a mom of a girl AND a boy, I'm loving Freshprint Clothesline. These papers are sweet and fresh, perfect for the spring. Love the soft green, blue and yellow hues that I'll be sure to stock up on.

Also notably is their Lucky Me line. I'm actually seeing the blue and green color combinations in clothing at the mall already! Is anyone else thinking about St. Patrick's Day? In the embellishment department, they have a quite innovative product, vinyl repositionable stickers, just like the ones we use on walls!

So much to play with, so little time!

Freshprint Clothesline - fresh soft colors

Generation Z - packed with bold patterns and high energy colors and embellishments

Lucky Me - Delightful color combination with a touch of foil

Sweet Love - All things sweet and lovely, lace, glitter and foil!
