GREAT FONT LIST

I found this article at www.huffingtonpost.com and thought it might be useful for most people. Now that the CRICUT EXPLORE and SILHOUETTE CAMEO both can import fonts into their software programs. If you do not have either of these machines I have a shipping list at the bottom of this page where you can purchase these machines! I thought this would be useful information for those of us that like out fonts to match out projects PERFECTLY.....I know that "some" of us exist....not saying I am one of those people. **SIGH***. I love this article since not only did they do a great job finding the links, but they also give great details on how to save the files. You can find the original article at:
The (free!) typefaces below may not have a place in many graphic designers' playbooks -- see this list for some of those -- but that doesn't erase their novelty factor for us.
To install a new font on any Mac with OS X 10.3 or above, simply double-click the file once it's finished downloading and click "install." You may also place the file into the folder "Users/[Your Name]/Library/Fonts."
Windows computer users will have to extract the font files beforehand by double-clicking the .zip file to expand it. With version 8, 7 or Vista installed, you'll then be able to simply right click and select "install." More details on downloading and installing your brand new fonts are available here.
In the meantime, here are those famous (and free!) fonts you'll want to start using immediately:

CIRCLE SPINNER CARD

Hey Everyone!! Ken Here with Ken's Kreations. Well I had so much fun creating my first spinner card....I wanted to create another Spinner card. This one was EXCLUSIVELY requested by one of my favorite Cricut groups online. 


I made a Circle Spinner Card EXCLUSIVELY for this group and here it is:


So How does this card work and how do you get the file?? Well watch this short little video:

Now Here is some photo directions and tips for this card.

I started with the file in DESIGN SPACE and cut the image on my CRICUT EXPLORE. i cut out the base in a floral pattern and the circles in a green and blue solid distress pattern.
I started with the base of my card and worked up from this point.
I took some SCOTCH BLUE PAINTERS TAPE and ripped it into strips. This will hold your circles in place while we put the pop dots on the back of the card. 
I replaced the center of the blue circle with the green circle and left the item on the CRICUT EXPLORE mat and then using the SCOTCH BLUE PAINTERS TAPE I taped small stops of tape along the edges as seen in the picture above. This way I knew I kept my spacing, which is VERY IMPORTANT in these spinner cards since we are using a penny and need to make sure it has enough room around the entire circle to go around.
I was than able to flip this over and using CIRCLE POP DOTS in various sizes on the back of the card. Do Not forget to put the pop-dot in between your penny. 
I was than able to affix this onto the bas of the card and remove the SCOTCH BLUE PAINTERS TAPE to reveal the space where the penny goes. 
I finished the card by using LIFE IS A BEACH CARTRIDGE to make the beach sigh using the write and cut feature on the CRICUT EXPLORE. If you want more information on how to make the Spinner Cards you can Watch My DIY YouTube Video Here:
