InVue Software Video: Single Stroke ...

With the addition of the amazing update of InVue 2.0 we now have Single Stroke fonts. In this video, you will learn how to access and use them. If you haven't taken the time to watch the Create Text video, I recommend doing that. Single Stroke fonts give us so many options to our projects. With the ability to create text that we can use with our Pen tool, Embossing and Engraving tools and even the Piercing and Distressing tools, your ability for creativity is limitless. There are four Single Stroke fonts that came with the update, but if you are like me and need more, Pazzles has released new ones for the InVue software that can be found in the store, here. You can also use Single Stroke fonts to create single line text for rhinestone files for having fun on projects that you want a nice thin line of rhinestones instead of the chunky filled type. The sky is the limit and with the InVue software and all of the things that continue to be added, including the Single Stroke fonts, your creativity can go to a whole new level if you want. Single Stroke Fonts In this video you will learn about using Single Stroke fonts. Single stroke fonts are fonts designed to be drawn, embossed, etc. rather than printed the way traditional True Type Fonts are designed. With single stroke fonts you can get a hand written appearance. Each Single Stroke Font is specifically designed to be drawn by an electronic cutter.




InVue 2.0 Released!

Today's InVue release is HUGE!!! It's so huge that InVue turned the big 2.0! With three major new features and a host of smaller improvements, this is by far the biggest update to the InVue software ever. Best of all the first InVue update of 2016 is free to all existing InVue owners! Read on to find out what has changed in the latest and greatest release of InVue, because there is sure to be a new feature you're going to love. Single Stroke Fonts One of the cool new features in this version of InVue is the added support for single stroke fonts. Single stroke fonts are fonts designed to be drawn, embossed, etc. instead of being designed for printing the way that traditional True Type Fonts are. With single stroke fonts you get a very unique look which often appears much more like natural hand writing (albeit substantially neater than I'm capable of). In addition, single stroke fonts are typically much faster for your machine to draw than traditional true type fonts.

Frosty Fun Birthday Card

Hello Craft Room friends, Melinda here with you today. My task was to share something with a winter theme. So I decided to use two of the new files in the Craft Room to create this wintery fun birthday card. Often I create birthday cards that aren't necessarily specific to the season in which they happen, but this card is going to my niece who was born in the first week of January. Plus she lives in Michigan, so I thought a cute little snowman card would fit the bill.

Travel Pocket Page

Travel Pocket Pages

I have really been wanting to work on my Australia and New Zealand photos. It has been a daunting task to approach since I have over 2000 photos to go through. There are so many great photos that I have had a hard time just starting. I realized with the amount of photos that I have, pocket pages would be the perfect idea to use in conjunction with regular layouts. There are a number of systems out there to choose from, or you can just get basic pocket page protectors. One of the funniest memories I have of our trip was the discovery of the mailboxes out in the rural areas of Australia. At first we were confused, so we asked someone about them. Apparently, the kangaroos are able to 'break in' to the regular type mailboxes, so people get creative in ways to keep the kangaroos out.
