freebie friday 2013 calendar

It is another freebie friday and what better time of year than to give you a desktop calendar. Each month measures 3 1/2 " square.  Print out on letter size paper and if you have a corner rounder punch use that to finish off the look. Find yourself a little easel or put it in a dollar store lucite frame and maybe you can be more organized this coming year, if that is a new year's resolution of yours.

Sympathy for a friend

It snowed for Christmas here in the deep south ☃ and so I thought I would show you all an almost all white card I made while looking at a white christmas just like the ones I use to know up north.

The technique is called Double Texture Embossing by Dawn Olchefske

I like this layout with the swiss dot embossing folder and the oval frame with a pretty stamped image inside. This technique of not embossing all of the paper in order to leave room at the bottom for a stamped sentiment is great and so versatile.

Did you know that in Eastern cultures white is associated with mourning? Pin It

Freebie Friday Font

The holiday season is in full gear and I hope this finds everybody getting their cheer on!

I have been reading a book about fonts called "Just My Type" by Simon Garfield and have been looking through the fonts in my computer and decided to do a post on fonts for friday's freebie. 

And to continue the celebratory theme (since we made it through the mayan end of the world prediction) AND we have so much to be thankful for I have included a link to a New Year Font.  

I have been making "font map/directories" for my ding bat fonts and have included this one for you, here is what it looks like
