The Big Day

I have been working *feverishly* all week to get this stuff together and I'm so happy that Friday is finally here! I'm so excited to show you all these new releases, but first I have to brag on Denise Beatty for a sec. Check this out:

I just love it!!!! I could look at it all day, it's so stinkin' cute. There is NO ONE better at banners and blinkies than Denise. Seriously. Have you seen my lame-o attempts at blinkies? S-A-D. Denise rocked this banner and she deserved some serious thanks - so thank you Miss Denise!!!

Alrighty, on to the new releases. I'm so excited to tell you that Brianne (my sister) of Hafen Creations and I have finally teamed up to bring you:


Our kiddos are both starting school soon and we knew we'd have lots of back to school pics to scrap so we decided we should make the perfect kit for ourselves! I really love how it turned out, and it is *HUGE* people! Two alphas, tons of realistic elements and lots and lots of papers too. Here are a few pages that the SM CT whipped up for us:

And one by me too (also using a great set of templates by none other than the great Denise Beatty!)


Fun stuff, huh? I've also got a little matching freebie at the end of this post too so keep reading!

And now for my MOST exciting news - my newest venture!



I dabbled with creating fonts about a year ago and only made 4 or 5. Since then one of my fonts (Brianne's Hand) has seriously taken off and become quite popular in the commercial arena. It has been used in a published novel, on billboards, a website, other ad campaigns, and even on TV! How cool is that? I really enjoyed making those few fonts, but after my old computer died with the font making program on it I kind of forgot about it until recently with all this commotion with Brianne's Hand came up. I decided that it was time to make some fonts again! And now you can have your very own handwriting turned into a font too. I love that my digital pages can be journaled in my own handwriting like all of my paper scrapped pages were.

So there are two options up there. The first one (the cheaper version) is non-exclusive which means after I make your font I reserve the right to sell it in my shop and/or use it for advertising or whatever. The exclusive version is for those of you who want that font all to yourself - you retain all the rights to the font. It's a really easy process and pretty quick too! If you're up for a little searching in the SM forum you might just find a coupon for 15% off my NON-exclusive font service too!

A few of the awesome CT gals at SM let me use their handwriting to make some new fonts for today's debut too! Can you stand some more new stuff? LOL




Whew, that's a lot of fonts! I've had so much fun this week making these cute fonts. I hope you enjoy them too.

Now, for all you good people who've stuck with me to the end of this marathon post - a little freebie! Click on the preview or HERE to download.


Brianne's got one too so don't forget to swing by her blog and snag it. Be patient though, she doesn't get up as early as I do! Ha!

That banner is seriously awesome! I'll definitely have to use Denise's services one of these days when I have a few more kits to work with.

I may not wake up as early as you, but I did set my blog to post this morning at 8... guess it was trying to sleep in too It's up now, so go grab the freebie!

This is so great. I grabbed the freebie and I'm excited to use it one day. I also downloaded the stuff to make my handwriting into a font. It's a lot of pressure though. I have about 6 different handwriting styles dependent on the pen I'm using and my mood. I will give it a shot though. Looking at my journal, you'd think I had multiple personalities, or that different people are making the entries. So weird.
