When I started scrapbooking, I became enamored with the fonts I saw in published layouts. Why? I teach. The font that assaults me on a daily basis is Times New Roman, so I was delighted by all the cute fonts out there. I dumped a lot of money on cute fonts on CD (not available for online purchase individually then), and played around.
I soon became paralyzed by font choice. There are So. Many. Cute. Fonts. Seriously! And honestly, many are cute, but they cost.
Not all of them cost: I'm grateful to Diana for leading me to this site with cute, free fonts. And I am glad to Jessica Sprague and Cathy Zielske for sending me to Pharmacy and Bleeding Cowboys. Club CK has free font Fridays. And I like the cute fonts at Two Peas, which truly are dirt cheap.
I have to admit, though, that browsing through fonts is not as fun as browsing through patterned paper for me. Just how different is one serif from another, huh? And a sans serif from another sans? Not too much, frankly. (Don't throw anything at me, font junkies.)
When I scrap digi, I do play around with fonts, because then it's about design more than readability, IMO. When I journal via the computer, though, I tend to use the same fonts again and again. My favorite sans font is unfortunately not loaded on the Mac I use, but I'm trying to get it from our old computer, if that's legit: Gill Sans. Love it.
And the Serif font I use again and again? Sheepishly, I admit, Times New Roman.
Which fonts do you love? Any freebies we should know about that are awesome? Do share!
