No crafts today, but I thought I would show you how I “make” my own fonts, it’s so easy, it’s untrue, but with your own font you can make so many projects so much more personal and special.
The site I use is - http://www.myscriptfont.com/
The instructions are simple to follow, first you need to download the template and print it off and then fill it in with your own handwriting, however you want to do it….
MyScriptFont.com template
Then you need to scan it, the site will tell you what setting to use etc. When it is scanned you go back to the site and upload it, give it a name and then click on “send file” and then in a minute or so your font is ready to install on your computer, it really is that simple, just follow all the instructions.
I’m addicted ……. have fun!

Thanks for that.

Thanks Helen. I remember you showing this once before but if I recall, it required payment, and I couldn't justify paying out to do it. It will be good to have a play around with this. Thanks.

Thank you for this but I don't think my handwriting would have the same effect as yours. Always think your writing looks great on your cards.
