Hi everyone! Today I’m going to show you how to create a hand lettered vinyl decal using the Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine. I received this absolutely beautiful machine from my friends at Cricut around the holidays and have only played with it a little bit so far, but I’m already hooked. *This post contains affiliate links, which provide no additional cost to you.

As a social media manager, it’s literally my job to know how to grow a following on Instagram (along with other social platforms). However, growing a following around a brand is completely different than growing a following around yourself/your art, right? Turns out, they’re actually not so different.
Hi friends! Today is the last day that my Bounce Lettering Basics online lettering class with Brit+Co is available for pre-order, so I wanted to take you behind-the-scenes and let you know what it was like to film the class. Hopefully this can help those of you who are thinking of teaching classes – on or off camera – someday!
A couple weeks ago I announced on my Instagram and Facebook accounts that I was filming a bounce lettering class with Brit+Co using Tombow brush pens, and today I’m excited to announce that the class is officially available for pre-order! I’m going to tell you a bit about the class here, and in a future post I’ll give you a peek at what all went into developing it. (Update: read that post here!) I’ve been an avid reader of Brit+Co for a few years now and it was a total dream-come-true, pinch me kind of experience.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, you guys! I don’t know about you, but I’m already getting in the holiday spirit drinking my peppermint mochas and scrambling to figure out what I’m going to do for this year’s Christmas cards.
I’ve teamed up with some of my calligrafriends from around the Internet to bring you 11 holiday-themed hand lettering projects. Each of us has created an awesome free hand lettering worksheet, hand lettering tutorial, or hand-lettered printable to share with you!
You can find my tutorial below and at the end of this post you’ll find links to all 11 tutorials created by these talented ladies!
Hi friends! I know things have been a bit quiet around here lately, but that’s only because I’ve been busy at work on some really exciting and fun projects! I’ll be able to talk to you about one of them more in a few weeks, and the other in a few months – so hang tight! Today I have a free downloadable handlettered trick or treat print for you guys! If you’re last minute like me and haven’t even bought a pumpkin yet (oops!), this print will be great to download, print out and pop in a frame. Ta-da! Instant Halloween decor.
I’m often asked some form of the question “Is there a trick to this lettering thing you do?” Well, yes, there is. And that trick, friends, is practice.
It sounds so simple, but you wouldn’t believe the look of horror that washes over someone’s face when I tell them I typically practice lettering 1-3 hours per day. I can see the wheels turning in their head, and I know what they’re thinking: “Must be nice, but I don’t have time for that.”
Guess what? Neither do I.
Hello friends! I’m back with part 2 of my series covering how to capture your lettering on video. If you missed the first post, you’ll want to check it out here to get filled in on the tools you need (the post covers tripods and lighting – both are essentials for capturing your lettering on video!). Today’s topics are filming and editing your videos.
Hi friends! I’m interrupting my video series to share a free downloadable handlettered coloring page with you! Last night when I went to start in on my daily lettering, I just wasn’t feeling super inspired. I didn’t know where to begin and I was feeling pretty tired, so I thought I’d try something a little different from what I normally do and take a stab at creating a handlettered coloring page.
Hi friends! Today I’m starting a series where I will be sharing some of my tips on how to capture your lettering on video. The first part of this series will cover getting the right tools (spoiler alert: you need a tripod), and lighting. This post contains affiliate links, which provide no additional cost to you.
