Font Fun – Back to School

Hey everyone!! Kiana here from Love it Scrap it and I’m here for some fun with fonts.

Most digital scrappers I know are always on the lookout for some great fonts to use on their layouts. I’m no different, in fact I’m sort of a font hoarder. I want all the pretty fonts!!! Lol.

Since the back to school season is happening here in Michigan and for many of you has already happened, I figured some cool back to school themed fonts would be a great thing to showcase. I found lots of fun fonts too!!!

First up this cute dotty font is super fun and brings me back to my school days when we had all those handwriting papers in Kindergarten and First grades. This would make some cute journaling especially if you have little ones that are practicing their writing. You can grab it from 1001 Free Fonts HERE.

Next I found this cute little cursive font. I really love the simplicity and it is super neat and clean. This one would be super cute for your journaling and would be easy to read. You can grab it from 1001 Free Fonts HERE.

Next up I found this super cool dingbat font. I love dingbat fonts but admittedly I don’t use them often enough. I can totally see these numbers becoming stamps on a layout to make the grade your child/grandchild is in or going in to. You can grab it from 1001 Free Fonts HERE.

And lastly is this basic handwriting font. With clean lines and and bold strokes this one could work well for a journal or a title on a page and is super easy to read. When I look at it, I see a small child being proud of their handwriting. You can grab it from 1001 Free Fonts HERE.

That Digits font and KG Miss Kindergarten were really cute so I had to try them out. I already had in mind that I wanted to use those dingbat number circles to act as a stamp on my page and I knew the Miss Kindergarten would be easy to read for journal. Once I started my layout and got the photos and papers in place I had the idea to make the dingbat into a chalkboard effect. So I placed it on the black chalkboard-ish paper and added a cool effect. I then used the Miss Kindergarten for the word tag journal and to add the ‘th grade’ to the “chalkboard” paper too. I think it turned out great .. what do you think?

Fonts add such cool touches to your layouts. I could have easily used any type of general font but adding the themed fonts really gave my page that extra umph! I hope you try out some of the fonts I’ve shared or find your own for your next layout.

Thanks for stopping by.

Font Challenge

It’s the last week for the Blog Challenges this month. Be sure to catch up on the challenges and post your layouts in our Blog Challenge Gallery so you can up your chances to win April’s Monthly XOXO Collab. I can promise you this collab is fun and a little “nutty”.

Now onto our weekly Blog Challenge by Barbara J.

Let’s have a font challenge!
Using a font that fits your layout can add so much to your journaling.
There are also many fun fonts to use in titles. For this challenge I’ve
chosen a font that I use a lot called A Little Pot. You can find it at
here at Dafont. It’s had 206,340 downloads, and over 200 on
the day I wrote this. (last week) So someone else out there is using it
too!
Some times it’s fun to alter fonts and for the title on my layout I put
a space between each letter on the word WHERE and then used a stroke
outline. Sometimes with this font you also have to alter the space
between lines if they overlap. Give this font a try on your next layout
and see if you like it as much as I do!

I’ve used a kit by one of our new designers:
