Font Friday: Quickpen

I've been meaning to write a Font Friday post about Quickpen by the talented Laura Condouris for a while now... It's one of my favorite script fonts ever! It is simply gorgeous... natural, but elegant without being too formal. Lots of lovely swashes and alternates. Great for wedding invitations, birth announcements, etc. Check it out...




I used Quickpen in a handful of my recent Minted holiday submissions and those were definitely favorites. Below is the aptly named "Oh, What Fun!"... geez, I'm so original!


So what are you waiting for, go get yourself some Quickpen at MyFonts.com!

Let It Snow! Minted Holiday Challenge 2014

So, I'm finally up for air after what seems like an eternity of working night and day on holiday photo cards! This is it, the BIGGEST Minted challenge of the year!!

I'm really, really proud of this work and I'm now humbly asking for your vote. Please take a few moments and rate my designs... but don't stop there because to make your votes count you will need to rate at least 25 more (to keep things fair).  The best way to get to my designs is to start HERE... and just keep voting! Or just click on this link... http://www.minted.com/challenge/155?sort=designer&page=200

Thank you sooo much!

Font Friday: Courtesy Script

You all know that I only feature fonts that I really love, right? Well, I haven't seen any new fonts in the past few weeks that I got super excited about UNTIL NOW... Seriously, my heart skipped a beat when I saw Courtesy Script by Suditpos!





I can't say enough about how lovely this font is! There are just SO many gorgeous swashes and alternates. Take a look for yourself, available at MyFonts.com... Oh and it's 30% off until April 20th!


Minted + West Elm = Art 2

UPDATE: Sunrise Sunset placed 2nd in the challenge!! And the three other pieces shown below were all chosen as editor picks! Wow, thank you to all that voted!

Well, I did it again... I entered another Minted art challenge! I had some ideas from the last art challenge that hadn't quite come together but I had time to work on them and I was able to submit them. And I really enjoyed making these pieces... I had fun playing with texture and hand-drawn patterns.





I'd appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to rate my work! Did I mention that the winners will be sold at West Elm stores across the country? Seriously, how cool would that be? Just click on any image to rate it...

Thanks!

Font Friday: Belluccia Bold

For a few years now Belluccia has been one of my go-to fonts when I need something elegant and romantic. In my opinion it's perfect for wedding invitations, birth announcements, and just about anything else you can think of.




That's why I'm so excited to share this week's Font Friday pick! Debi Sementelli, the calligrapher behind the gorgeous Belluccia, Cantoni, and Dom Loves Mary typefaces has released Belluccia BOLD! It's got all the loveliness of the original but with a little more weight.

So here's the really awesome part... Debi has offered Super Swoon readers an additional 10% off on top of the current 30% sale price on both regular and bold versions! Just head on over to MyFonts and use the coupon code "SUPER SWOON" before 3/15.
