I love fonts. Currently, I have 948 fonts on my computer. Some are regular fonts, and some are dingbats and doodlebats. Using the Sure Cuts A Lot software, I can cut them out with the Cricut. Font Book is a program that came on my Mac that shows me what all my fonts look like. I keep it in my dock so I can get a quick look at them to see which one I would like to use either with Microsoft Word, Power Point, or SCAL.
I also own Cricut cartridges, and several of them have fonts on them, too. I can’t see those unless I get out the handbooks, or look at them on my Gypsy. Some of them were a free download when I got the Gypsy, and they don’t even have handbooks. The screen on the Gypsy is so small, it’s very hard to see with my middle-aged eyes.
So I decided to make a little project. I cut out a sample of each Cricut font. I’ll either keep them in a notebook or tacked up on a bulletin board so they’re within eyeshot when I’m crafting.
This is what they look like:
If the font had a shadow, I cut that out, too. Now I’ll know at a glance what I have and will be able to pick the one that suits my project.
