For a long time I've been collecting fonts, downloading them to my computer, installing some of them but not all. I can't help myself, they are the same to me as pretty papers and inks. I occasionally add a computer generated sentiment to a project or card but now with the Cameo I can use my fonts to make cut files. So far I've cut some small images from card to use with my Journals, December Daily etc.
I've put an order in for some Vinyl and can't wait to try some small pieces. I'm thinking maybe some small monogrammed pieces for the new house.
A visit to MaritzaLisa's blog introduced me to a stunning vintage and eroded font from Iranian Designers Zahra and Amir that was featured here by Noor. I followed the trail and downloaded a copy to play with.
I opened the images in Studio and used the trace feature to pick out the letters I wanted to work with.
Copied each to another file and sized them before sending them to the Cameo to cut.
I printed my first three letters at just 2 inches high for the capital 'S' and 1inch for the rest which made it the perfect size for the front of my notebook.
Next, I used some 3" tall letters to make cards, I love the B. I added some twine and a few AnnaBelle's Sprinkles to complete the front of each.
I really like the idea of a set of notecards using my initial in this way. I used a Flourishes stamped sentiment and a Copic black slim pen to draw the dashed lines.
I've added a reminder to cut the word 'Inspire' to attach to a pin board for my new craft room, what do you think?
Thanks for dropping past today, please go visit with MaritzaLisa and follow the trail to this lovely font for yourself. You could hand cut most of these if you're not a Cameo owner :)
