Fonts and font bundles

I have become intrigued with different fonts and how they make the end result of a project vary from ‘that's nice’ to wow! 

When you see a font, and like that font chances are that although there are hundreds and thousands of free fonts the one you want is not free. They range in price from as little as a $1 on some sites for just a font or you can get bundles that have discounts. 

Some fonts are expensive but as I don’t know how to make a font myself I rely on other people who have made them. Now everyone likes to get paid for the work they do so there are times I bite the bullet and buy a font or a bundle, and when I come across a bundle like the Wedding bundle and I have 2 or more weddings coming up in the family I start to think where my time is best used, looking through hundreds of free fonts or getting a bundle and paying a few dollars. 

Recently I wanted a particular font as my great niece is getting married and wanted "that writing" on her invites. Having purchased the font for 5 computers I thought ah ha! I've got it now I wont need any more. ha-ha-ha bonk (that's laughing my head off) because I just got an email on the Wedding Bundle from Fontbundles.net and all I could think of was oh wow I know where I can use this, and this. This bundle has 26 bundles in it, yes 26 all sorts. There are cards, flourishes, swirls, frames, invites, and cutting files. Well I hope I have intrigued you with all this and you go here to check it out.

unicorn box

These open mouth unicorn boxes are from digi playground.

cards and paper sculpture

Butterfly card made with open path cuts so the wings stand up. the layer is made to go over the butterflies. Love the black butterfly tops on the orange.

This was designed by using word to write the words taking a snip of them and uploading as a pattern into design space, used the butterfly I liked in 3 sizes and then added the font. Used a print and cut to laser printer then foiled it. It worked well putting the foil through a laminator.

Paper sculpture from Dreaming Tree. I layred it into a shadow box from templatemaker.nl.
