New Font: You Gotta Have It!!


Sugarcakes2 over on the Craft Edge forum made a font that she was kind enough to share with us.  It is a great font for scrapbookers with lots of shapes, frames, borders, envelopes, etc.  I love the shapes to cut from chalkboard vinyl for a great addition to the kitchen or pantry.  If you like what you see on the character map above, you can download the font here.
If you are wondering how I made the character map, Becky Melton has an awesome online character map generator.  A great tool to organize your dingbat treasures (fonts).  You have to check it out here.  Type in the name of any installed dingbat font you want to generate a character map for (type it is exactly as it is named) and poof, just like magic, it will spit out a character map for you!!

Thanks sugarcakes2 for the great font and Becky for the great charactermap generator.

  5. Hi loopgoop. The font file is a zip file, so you need to extract it first. Then simply drag the font file (called scrapbook.ttf) to your font folder. If you drag the file to your fonts folder without extracting it, it will not work. Hope that helps!!
