Playing with Quietfire QFD Monogram Fonts - Tutorials

There are so many uses for the QFD Monogram Fonts, I don't know where to start!!  Cardmaking, Scrapbooking, Home Decor immediately come to mind.

Here is a video that shows how you can easily mix and match fonts and they don't even have to be using the Silhouette software (although that is how you can best use them for home decor and wearables).

Although my Monogram Fonts aren't designed for creating text, it's fun to mix and match them to personalize a project!  See the mixing and matching tutorial HERE on YouTube (use this link if you are receiving this as an email update).

NOTE: Simple matching letters for many of the QFD Monogram Fonts can be found here: http://www.quietfiredesign.ca/Basic-Caps-Monogram-Font.html

    1. Hi Erika! What's great about these is that you can make them any size. It depends on the size of your shirt and if you want a little monogram over a pocket or a big one right in the middle of a man's large t-shirt. Try printing one out on paper to test it and tweak it from there. Hope that helps!

  2. Can your fonts be used for a negative cut? Example: I want to create a box with an initial cut out of one of the panels. I'm thinking of using the Holly font. I'd want to add back the embellishments as 3D appliques. How would I go about doing this? Also, how can I rotate the font so that it is right side up as it would appear on the finished box? Thank you,
    Janice

    1. Hi Janice! Wow, that's a lot of questions! As I'm not looking over your shoulder, I would recommend doing some testing. As soon as you click off the letter in the Silhouette software, it becomes an object and will be cut out wherever you drag it - you will want to turn off some of the cutting lines. (Some of these fonts are more easily used as a print.) Simply click on the green ball when the design is highlighted to rotate it. Depending on the letter you might have counterspaces dropping out, so you might need a clear panel inside the box to adhere those to. I think you should start from there and then add back in the embellishments. I hope that gives you a starting point and helps a bit! Suzanne

  3. Hi. I love your monogram fonts. I am looking to make a shirt where I want the first letter of the word to use one of your monogram font letters but then the rest of the word simple font with no additional images. Do you have a simialr font that matches your monogram font letters?

  5. No instructions for folded letters, so cut out of paper you want, that's it?

    1. You can follow the instructions for the full colour monogram fonts. See the video above! It's print and cut, so best to use white cardstock. Happy cutting!

  6. i tried using the video instructions using extra elements and coloring on pineapple monogram font and it didn't seem to work. particularly on the pineapple fruit part. it worked perfectly for leaves.

    1. Hi there! The leaves are a "fill in" element, but the pineapple part is an overlay element. Sorry about the confusion. So as long as you enlarged all the pieces at the same time, you should be able to recolour the pineapple element and just slide it over the monogram pineapple. Does that help? Contact me through my website if you need more help! Happy creating!
