Free Printable Place Cards in Calligraphy font: Gratitude


Today I have one word for you. Gratitude.

It’s how I start and end my day.

Since Thanksgiving is only 2 days away, I wanted to share some “Gratitude” with you in thanks for your encouragement, support and kindness.

I’ll be using these as place cards on my Thanksgiving table.

They’re made using my Dom Loves Mary font.

Just right click to download and print as many as you need.  Then cut on the trim marks.

There’s space to put a name underneath.

Don’t worry about your hand writing:)

I’m attaching mine to toothpicks with a glue gun and sticking in a pear that will go on the plate.

Especially on Thanksgiving, I hope you have good food to eat and good company to keep.

I hope you let your worries rest for a time and just enjoy being.

And I hope your heart is filled with thanks for the big and small things that surround you.

In addition to my husband Michael and my sister Ann who lives near me, my sister Diane will be here from Michigan!

My son Alex is home from school and though we’ll miss my son Nick, he assures me he’ll be gathering with friends in D.C.

And me? I’ll be spending the day smiling in gratitude:)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Free Printable Chalkboard Sign: Just Married


Today’s Free Printable Chalkboard sign is….drum roll please:) “Just Married” created with my newest calligraphy font, Dom Loves Mary.

Dom Loves Mary cursive font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font, Free Printables, Chalkboard Wedding Signs

If you want to enlarge this sign to fit on the back of a car or truck (or wherever) FedEx Kinko’s can enlarge it to the desired size.

They can also laminate it and/or back it with foam core to stabilize it.

Or if you’re feeling crafty, have an enlarged print made and cut out the letters to make a stencil.

Be sure to leave some pieces of paper connected to each other in totally enclosed areas so it doesn’t create a space where you don’t want it to be. For instance, in the big loop of the “M”.

Purchase an aerosol can of Marking Chalk (normally used for sports fields) from Ace Hardware or Dick’s Sporting Goods.  Or colored Spray Chalk at a place online like Toolup.com.

Use the sign as a stencil to temporarily place the saying on the concrete or grass at a location where guests can see it!

I haven’t tried this yet but have seen it done online. I’ll try to find and post tomorrow.

Send me a pic to post if you do!

If you have a saying you’d like to see on a Chalkboard sign, leave a comment !

I’m in the sign making mode so you might just get your wish:)

Hope it’s a Marvelous Monday!

Personalized Lettering for Baby Nursery


Today I want to share a sweet personalized lettering project I did for a client’s baby nursery.

I know I promised you more chalkboard saying giveaways, and they’ll be coming.

But I have lots of projects I’ve been working on and wanted to fit that in so you can see what else I do besides create and promote my fonts:)

Hand Lettering, calligraphy, Bible Quote for Baby Nursery, Bible Quote in Calligraphy, Baby Nursery Artwork, Personalized CalligraphySo here is a the piece I created for sweet Audrey Leigh.

It’s 11.5″ x 15.5″ and is lettered on 140 lb. Arches paper in pen and gouache paint in two colors of pink.  She even gave me a cute little pink baby sock to match the color:)

You KNOW I haven’t had one of those around my house in a loooong time!

Hand Lettering, calligraphy, Bible Quote for Baby Nursery, Bible Quote in Calligraphy,The client also had me create these small pieces to accompany it.  They will go in 4″ x 4″ frames.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

The Dom Loves Mary font is now  available for purchase at: Correspondence Ink Type foundry .

Making the Hot New Fonts  list is a huge deal for a new font. And I’m grateful to everyone who got Dom Loves Mary to # 10.

But what’s even bigger is making the next list: “The Rising Stars”.

Only the top 5 on the Hot New Fonts list make it to that next step. I was thrilled when my first font, Belluccia, was on it.

So I am doing all I can to spread the word about her sister, Dom Loves Mary to  get her on it as well.  (You know how it is with siblings.  They always want what the other one has:)

So I know it’s the start of holiday madness ( note to self: DO NOT release a new font just before the holidays!)

But if you care to help me here’s how you can do it:

FREE Printable Chalkboard Wedding Signs with Dom Loves Mary Calligraphy font


Today’s Free Printable Chalkboard Wedding Signs were inspired by a combination of my last post featuring a Chalkboard sign by Ciera Design.  And the giveaway contest I had on Brenda’s Wedding Blog.

The winner was chosen Nov. 12. She will receive artwork created with my Dom Loves Mary font including : 15 Table numbers, A Bride and Groom ( or Mr. and Mrs. sign), a set of 15 Table Number signs and 4 additional signs of the winner’s choice. (Ex: Sweets, Photo Booth, Thank you, Just Married, etc…)

Brenda asked the participants what they would want on their additional signs.  There were so many great responses, I decided to create the top 4 choices as FREE PRINTABLES  that you can download and print on 11″ x 8.5″ card stock.

Do me one favor,…if you like them, please  (with chocolate sprinkles on top) PIN them or share on TWITTERr or FACEBOOK:)

I put my Lettering Art Studio copyright mark to protect my work on the internet.  But you can easily cut out the black sign and adhere it to another piece of white or colored card stock when you are using it for your wedding.

I am having so much fun creating these, I’m going to post more tomorrow!

Enjoy!

Ciera Designs creates Chalkboard Sign


Today I want to introduce you to Ciera Holzenthal of  CieraDesign.com.

I came across her blog/design studio by chance and just loved everything I saw and read!

She is not only a great blogger but a very talented graphic designer.

Her services include: logo identity, invitations, editorial, business cards, brochures, WordPress, posters and more!

She recently created this lovely graphic using my Dom Loves Mary font family and has graciously allowed me to share it.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

She used a combination of the three Dom Loves Mary Script fonts for the wording.

(You get all three in the Pro package.)

The capital N is from the Stylistic version, while most of the lower case letters are from the Contextual version.

To encapsulate the saying, she chose two simple flourishes. The top one comes from my Flourishes One set, while the bottom is from the Flourishes Two set.

I’m guessing she was able to find the chalkboard background online like this free one.

You can refer to my previous post here and here on how to add flourishes to your design and create a great saying of your own!

How to: Dom Loves Mary font ADD ONS and Flourishes tutorial


I’ve created another tutorial:)

In this “How to” I cover the use of some of the Dom Loves Mary font ADD ON’s  and ORNAMENTAL FLOURISHES to spice up your design.

Before I get to it, I wanted to send a shout out of thanks to Lettering Time blog for featuring my new cursive font, Dom Loves Mary.

It’s always lovely to see a posting about my work.  But to see it on a blog from Spain was really cool!  Muchas Gracias!

Today’s tutorial will feature an invitation design by Nessa Sander of Cardgirl Invitations.

In this fun invitation, she incorporated some of the words from my Dom Loves Mary ADD ON package ( “and”, “RSVP”).

She also added an ornamental flourish from the Dom Loves Mary Stylistic version of the font and used the same version for the words “dress to kill”.

I specifically created the ADD ON’s (66  commonly used words for invitations and stationery products) for use with, not only my calligraphy fonts, but with fonts you already own.

So I was excited to see that Nessa had done just that in this invitation.

Now on with the show and tell.

(I tried to share more details for beginners so feel free to fast forward through those parts:)

Thanks to everyone for the great feedback on the last one.

It’s helping me improve!

Please share your thoughts on this one as well.

Best,

Debi

Dom Loves Mary calligraphy font on Bridal Luncheon invite


I was thrilled to have the chance to play with my new “Dom Loves Mary” calligraphy font on this Bridal Luncheon invitation for a client of DFW Events!

I loved adding all the flourishes to the upper and lower case letters in the brides name.

The invitation, in hot pink and orange, was presented to the guests in a personalized champagne glass.  ( For some reason the hot pink turned more purple in this post:)

The younger flower girls who were attending the luncheon received flower cookies, made by “It’s a Mary Cake“, with their invitation attached.

A flower cookie favor was also placed at their table setting.

Thanks to all who have been loving Dom Loves Maryt just as much as I do.

It’s been so exciting to see my new cursive font move up the Hot New Fonts list to # 16!

And I know Dom and Mary would be thrilled too:)

Dom Loves Mary calligraphy font is launched!


Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

Thanks to all for following the love story of my in-laws, Dominic and Mary Sementelli. I’m thrilled that my “Dom Loves Mary” calligraphy font, created in their memory, has finally been launched on Myfonts.com!

This week, I’ll be showing you some of the features of the font that I created specifically with weddings in mind.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

The first thing I want to highlight is the special package of 66 ADD ON words. Some of the projects these can be used for are: invitations, envelope addressing, programs, Bride and Groom signs, Thank you tags and note cards.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

Today, I’m going to show you the cool ways you can use it for envelope addressing.

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

I included ” deliver to” and embellished titles ( Mr. and Mrs.( as seen above), Mr. Miss, Ms, Doctor, The Doctors ) to add a special touch to your envelopes.  In this sample, I used a combination of both the Dom Loves Mary SCRIPT CONTEXTUAL and TEXT fonts, as well as additional letter flourishes, that come in two sets of 72 each.

I had so much fun creating all the different options, I just couldn’t stop myself!

Dom Loves Mary font, calligraphy font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, hand lettered font, calligraphy font

This sample was created using mostly the SCRIPT fonts ( A combination of STYLISTIC and STANDARD) with just the city and state in the TEXT font along with added flourishes on some of the letters in the names. One of my favorites is the abbreviation for number (No.). I think it  looks really cool when used for Apartment numbers:)

More Show and Tell tomorrow!

DomLovesMary font: Una Bella Vita


If you’ve been following the story of Dom loves Mary, this is the final post in the series.  If not, you can go back and read about Mary, Dom , their wedding, reception, honeymoon, Babies Make Four and The Daughter they never had and The Grandchildren.

Moment by moment, Dom and Mary created a beautiful life.

In Italian, we say “Una Bella Vita”.

Mary and Dom Sementelli 1953

From their first years as newlyweds…

Christmas 2007

And Mary would continue the tradition of being with us in Dallas for Christmas.

Dance at Rainbow Gardens July 3, 1953- 2 months before their wedding.

Yes, this young feisty girl who loved to sing and dance and her strong, silent guy had quite a life.  A beautiful life.

And I’m so grateful to have been a part of it.

I hope the font that is named in their honor would make them proud.  I know they would feel the love that went into creating it.

It’s also my hope that those using the font will have their own version of “Una Bella Vita”.

When I was thinking of how to end this lovely series, I came across some pictures that made me smile.

Immediately a voice in my head encouraged me to  “go out singing and dancing.”

So here you go Mary.
