Friday Favourites

 Every Friday (more or less 😉) I bring you a graphic, a font and a cut file that I like.  Some will be free and some will be paid for, but all are items that I have downloaded or purchased myself.  

This week's graphic offering is a little bit different.  I came across this Photoshop Stamp Brush Bundle at Creative Fabrica and couldn't believe how much it contained 😲!  There are 136 stamp brush sets, totalling more than 5000 individual brushes!  For those without Photoshop, they also work with Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo.


 A stamp brush is basically a stamp.  Although it is called a brush, you don't paint or draw with it. Rather you stamp individual images on to your canvas wherever the brush passes.  So this could be great for creating textured backgrounds and patterned papers for journals, scrapbooking, cardmaking, sublimation... Basically any crafty project.  At $12 (or included as part of the All Access Subscription) it's an absolute bargain.

I created this gorgeous, textured background using some of the brush sets in this bundle - namely the splash, foil and cracks sets. You can download this background for free here.   I may film a tutorial for creating a digital background like this soon, so consider subscribing to my YouTube channel to keep updated.

This week's font is Rainbow from Creative Fabrica. It is a decorative typeface with 5 different styles - plain, stars, stripes, hearts and circles.  It's super cute and would be a good candidate for use with digital cutting machines.  

If you know your way around a graphics program like Affinity Designer, you could also isolate the outline of the letters to get a solid base for layered effects like I did with the last two examples.


With Easter fast approaching, these Easter Egg Lanterns from Design Bundles would be a cute addition to your Easter decorating.  Do you decorate for Easter?  I don't specifically decorate for Easter, but I do like to have a lot of floral decorations around go celebrate Spring.  

And again, if you know how to modify SVGs, you could squish the tabs and replace with Christmas imagery to get decorative ball lanterns for the festive season.

Until next time...
