One of my favorite things to do is write my fiance letters. It’s so old fashioned, and yes..it takes him 3-4 days to get them, but it’s so much fun!! I never run out of things to tell him, it’s not always interesting but I can atleast I can always fall back on what’s happening in Orange is the New Black or Gilmore Girls. Most of the time I tell him how much I love him and come up with obnoxious pet names like “Honey Bunches Of Oats”…Yeah…I’m that girl. (Not in front of his friends though)! Long story short, I’m always looking for new ways to make the letters different and interesting!! I’ve printed out quizzes, questionnaires, puzzles…but I decided next I’m going to try making my own stationary (bare with me). I AM NOT TECHNICALLY SAVVY. But I’ve seen some people do the picture faded in the background type of thing, which I like..but I feel weird writing over people’s faces…seems rude! So instead I downloaded some fonts (from fontspace.com) and used plain ol’ Microsoft Word & PIXLR (my favorite editor) to come up with some cool looks. So here is what I came up with:
The pictures suck..I realize that. Lighting at 2am is pretty HORRID. However, for the first one I made a photo collage on Pixlr.com, and then put it at the bottom of my word document, added a line on top from the “Shapes” menu, and then simply typed in one of my favorite quotes on top in a font that I downloaded from FontSpace.com (Font is called CaneLetter Script, if you’re interested).
For the Second one it was even easier…I downloaded another font from FontSpace.com ( It’s called I Love What You Do) and split up one of my favorite love quotes (one of the few that doesn’t make me wanna gag from the sweetness, thank you Emily Bronte) “Whatever Souls are made of His & Mine are the same”. I simply typed half on top, and half on the bottom in a fun color…BAM. It made my letters look a smidgen better than my usual scribbled hearts and stars that I usually gracefully add down the margins.
I’m really working on coming up with some new fun Love Letter inspired crafts!! I definitely need a cute way to store the many I have because they currently sit in a plastic tub, which is just oh so romantic! Hmm Hmm Hmm…time to go put on my thinking cap! Leave me some comments if you have any ideas!!
