Script Fonts from FontBundles

Do you guys love fonts as much as I do? I love collecting them and using them for prints, design work, and Cricut projects. I want to introduce you today to FontBundles, where you can find loads of fonts (including free ones) as individual ones, or of course in bundles. You can grow your collection in leaps and bounds! They also have tons of design products like templates, graphics like backgrounds, textures and illustrations. And, there are free designs and free fonts available every week!







I've been playing with the Cool Font Bundle and I wanted to show you the fonts that come in it for just $12 (a $90 value.) 





How to use your own fonts in Cricut Design Space

Any fonts that you download can also be used in your Cricut projects. Find the font in your download folder, click the folder to open and click on the TTF file of the font. A window will pop up that shows examples of the font, and there's an "Install" button at the top. Just click that, and it will be installed.

My favorite tip for working with script fonts in Design Space, is that you need to weld the letters together!
     1. Type the word (or words)
     2. Switch to the font you want (in the edit panel - select "System Fonts" which accesses            all the fonts that have been installed on your computer. Then find the one you want 
         to use
     3. Right click on the text and click "ungroup"
     4. Now each letter can be selected and moved individually. Overlap them slightly where            they might naturally join if someone were handwriting the word. Then select all the letters again, right click, and select weld. 

**Cricut Tip** If you forget the name of the font you used and you've already broken apart and welded a letter, you can still find it! Click on the layer, in the right hand section, then the layer panel opens and there's a small "i". Click that, and the font name will show up for you.


Now that you know how to use your own fonts in Cricut Design Space, let me show you what I made!  I used the Angella font for the word Paris and the Eiffle Tower is available in Cricut Design Space as well. I cut everything out in heat transfer vinyl and applied it to the bag with my regular iron. Click here for a tutorial on heat transfer vinyl



I also made a free spring printable using the Melisca font and today's free designs.





Go get your free watercolor flower designs too!
