Fonts are a VERY IMPORTANT part of any project - and in my opinion, using the right ones can take your project from drab to fab! I've been called the "Font Queen" by many friends and family... anytime I do something new they are always asking...
"Where did you get that font?"
Some people collect figurines or stamps... I obsessively collect fonts. I have hundreds of them and know each one by name and am always on the lookout for something new and unique. There a great selection of free font sources that any new or old font addict should know about!
The first is SCRAPVILLAGE. They have a huge, very diverse collection of free fonts that download very easily. Spend a little bit of time on their website and you'll end up with a nice collection of unique fonts of your own! I think you should be able to find most of the ones shown above on their site.
My second "GO-TO" font spot is Fonts For Peas... an awesome website where font creator and blogger, Amanda, takes handwriting samples and turns them into free fonts for font addicts like us! She has a huge selection, sure to fit the needs of any digital project you have going on. If you are looking for fancy, cursive, trendy, perfect print or whimsical - she's got it. And, if you happen to have cool or unique handwriting, you can submit a sample (instructions HERE) and she might choose yours for her next release!
Pea Fonts add a more personalized touch for journaling entries on scrapbook pages and definitely can give any project or blog design a fun creative edge. Amanda also has another font collection HERE that any crafter, blogger or scrapper would love! A couple of my other favorites you might want to browse are Sugar Frog Fonts & Two Peas Free Fonts.
NEED HELP INSTALLING NEW FONTS?
Everyone's computer is different... but here's how I do it on mine, I'm a PC:
"Click" on the font you want and a download box will pop up. Click "Save" (I usually choose to save it directly to my desktop. That way, it doesn't get lost in the abyss of my C: drive). Then, to "install" it, open the file (unzip it first if you need to) then at the top of the sample page is an "install" button. Click that and you are done!
I hope you'll visit my ETSY SHOP and see what fun things can be created using fonts!
I USE SCRAPBOOK MAX TO DESIGN ALL OF MY PRINTABLES.
