I love playing with fonts. If you are anything like me, you have grungy fonts, whimsical fonts, typewriter fonts, block fonts, doodled and scribble fonts as well as novelty fonts for every possible theme. How about adding a font of your own handwriting? Scrapbook pages contain our stories, our photos why not our handwriting as well? Handwritten loving, letters from families members have long been cherished treasures. Bring a touch personal, heartfelt writing to your pages with your own handwriting (and still have the luxury of spell check).
There are several font developers around digiland that can transform your handwriting into a font, including Darcy Baldwin at Sweet Shoppe Designs. Darcy is fabulous to work with and always available to answer questions and help someone through the process (which is really quite easy – write out all the characters and scan them in).
Here are just a few pages from the Sweet Shoppe Designs gallery showcasing some fun, poignant and eye-catching ways to use personal handwriting to enhance a layout.
