Hi everyone, Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  One of the reasons I love calligraphy and hand lettering is because it comes in very handy during special occasions and entertaining. For Thanksgiving, I made these pumpkin place cards, which are quite simple and fast. In fact, I made them a couple of hours before my guests arrived for dinner! They are perfect for any Fall theme event aside from Thanksgiving, like Halloween, a Country theme dinner, or even a rustic wedding. If you’re not confident about your writing on these place cards, then just stamp the names or print the names on the computer and glue them on. Here is a video tutorial to help you make these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2p9Iw-_gUk I hope you are able to enjoy this creative art form as much as I do. Breathe. Write. Relax.

I used the larger .6mm nib for my card. For the lettering, you can either fill in the strokes with the black pen or leave…

Pens, pens, pens, and more pens! WOW! The Sakura booth is bursting with everything to make your world colourful! Branching out from pens, Sakura has expanded their beautiful line of Koi Watercolor palettes, suitable for travel, called the “Pocket Field Sketch Box,” which comes in different sizes. And then there’s the walls of pens. The Pigma Microns have been a standard for many artists, and look at all the colours! The Koi Watercolor Brush pens are wonderful for illustrating, colouring, with or without water, and brush lettering. The Cray-Pas is the original high quality oil pastels that probably many of us used in elementary school. The range of colours is impressive! For non-porous surfaces like chalkboard, vinyl, metal, wood, vellum, glass etc… the Permopaque Pigment Markers are awesome and have a dual point: bullet and chisel. Another line of permanent pens that work on various materials is the Pen-Touch. They…
