Font Friday: Selfie

Wow, it's been three months since my last post! I've been missing this place something awful and I need to on a regular posting schedule... Something I hope to accomplish with my new weekly planner from Minted! The thing with Font Fridays is that I really only want to post about fonts that I really, really like. So If I don't come across anything that is a really great deal or that makes me say "Ohhhhh!" then I don't post about it. And I like to think that helps keep the content of this blog fresher... at least that's my hope!

Well, today I have a font for you that is both a good deal and "Ohhhhh!" worthy! Please meet Selfie, a lovely script font from Lián Types...






Selfie is available at MyFonts.com and it's 25% off until Nov. 7th!

Have a happy and safe Halloween, everyone!


 

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!

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.




Font Friday: Brandon Printed


Yay, I'm finally back with a new Font Friday for you! And I'm so glad that my first pick in months is so awesome... It's called Brandon Printed by HVD Fonts. There have been a few of these layered typefaces out lately (Frontage, Le Havre Layers, etc) and I love those too but this one really speaks to me because of it's vintage, distressed style... take a look!





It has 8 fonts total... regular (1 and 2) versions, two shadowed, one standard shadow, one inline, one double, and one extras. Plus plenty of alternates for each. I was all set to buy this at the regular price but then I realized it was on sale at MyFonts.com - all 8 fonts for $29! Score!!

Be sure to check out some of my previous Font Friday picks in my Font Friday gallery.

Minted - Welcome Little One! Birth Announcement Challenge

Wow, it has been WAY too long since I have posted here... it was a crazy holiday season and I'm finally getting back into the swing of things! My schedule is a little more manageable now and I'd like to get back into posting more regularly... because I actually missed it!

So to kick things off I wanted to share with you some birth announcements that I designed for Minted's latest birth announcement challenge. I love birth announcements but "cute" really isn't my style... so this is my take on modern announcements that are still fun and maybe even a little whimsical. If you like what you see please consider taking a moment to rate these designs.

Just click on an image to get to it's design rating page...  Thanks!
