Hand Lettering


Happy Mother’s Day!  We hope you have time this weekend to do take some photos, do some scrapbooking and record those wonderful family memories. The May sketch is up in our Sketchy Gallery ready to inspire you! I was lucky enough to spend some time scrapbooking on National Scrapbook Day and designed 2 layouts based on this sketch.  The first one features the Simple Stories “Heart” collection. I did a little brush lettering with the Tombow Fudenosuke soft tip brush pen to add “you have my” to the title. For the second layout, I rotated the sketch a quarter turn clockwise and used Fancy Pants Designs “Me-Ology” collection.  I’m trying to scrapbook more photos of myself this year, and the ME-ology line is perfect! I used the Tombow Monotwin to doodle on the layout and add some interest with black lines.  The Monotwin has 2 tips of different sizes…

Hello everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share a special Mother’s Day gift and card you can make using some beautiful BoBunny products. I used the gorgeous “Secret Garden” collection from BoBunny, which has beautiful purple tones with lots of floral images, like roses, lilacs and lavender. This collection is PERFECT for Mother’s Day! When I saw the beautiful piece of paper with the wreath, I knew I was going to hand letter a quote for my mother to express how much she means to me.  I first sketched the quote on a scrap piece of paper so I knew where the words would fit into the wreath circle.  Then I penciled in the words and followed with drawing them with the new Ranger Dylusions White Linen paint pen. I did the same faux calligraphy on the card with “Happy Mother’s Day.” After I created the faux calligraphy words,…

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…

Hello everyone!  Kelly Klapstein here to share my layout based on the November Sketchy challenge. Here is the November sketch: This Fall has been so beautiful in Alberta, and I snapped so many photos of the amazing golden colours of trees.  I just had to scrap them! The paper collection and leaf die cuts are from Momenta. I used my Sizzix Big Shot to die cut and emboss these pretty leaves. I used Tombow Dual Brush pens to hand letter the title “The Golden Hours” and write the journaling. I also used the Tombow pens to create a watercolour effect on the background, which is Canadian Scrapbooker Superstock.

I used some Stampin’ Up! stamps and Clearsnap ColorBox Frost White pigment ink to add a distressed effect to the outer edges of the paper. My…
