This one WAS a struggle. I found a really cool (what I thought was a) font called MOOD TYPE. It wasn’t till I started working with it that I found this little bit of info:
Note: This is an eps font for display font purposes only, at the moment. There are no PostScript or OpenType versions available.
What that means is it doesn’t act like a font. I opened the .eps file and had to convert it to a PDF for editing, then un-group it and re-group each letter to include all the parts (like the O, which consisted of the surrounding circle and the little X in the middle) then create the words using all the aligning tools and spacing tools.
I coloured them to match Sea Foam, and placed them on a 6×4 gridded background. I went with that size because over the last week or so I have seen more than one comment on various PL posts complaining that there are not enough cards in that size – I guess that goes for both printables as well as the for-purchase PL kits.
They only fit two to a page so it’s a 4 page PDF – here is a sample:
The last page has only the Saturday card on it, but includes all the day-words, like so:
Why, you ask? well I wanted to revisit something I’ve done before that I still think is both cute and useful. If you cut the words as strips, they can be added to blank areas of your photos, if you aren’t keen to waste a slot in your divided protector:
And just a little trick for you now. I was a little frustrated because my guillotine trimmer only goes up to 5 inches. I seem to need to cut 6 inches a LOT, and I hate having to drag out my larger trimmer to do that. So I cut a piece of matt board and stuck it to the top, away from the actual cutting area. Like so:
As you can see it doesn’t increase the size of the trimmer hardly at all and as it is stuck quite securely, I am not worried about it coming loose if I take it in my crop bag, for example. Cost me nothing and has totally increased the usefulness of my tool.
Have fun with them – hope you find them useful!
