BECAUSE NORMALLY I'D BE LEAVING TODAY...

but this week I'm leaving tomorrow - - - I thought I'd scrap just a little bit longer!

Just this once!! (grin)

And because I got the sweetest email from Annie - in the Netherlands. Annie is debating weather to add the new Rollerskate 4x8 font to her order, and she asked if I'd post a sample of the font.

Well Annie - I'm not only going to post a sample of the font, I'm going to post it in use, on a 12" x 12" scrapbook page. That I just happened to have time to whip up last night.

Because here at Scrap-Mart - we always strive to do the "and then some"!

So Miss Annie - - - this one's for you!


For this page I used: QK 4x8 Rollerskate, Spellbinders Standard Circles, QK Arrows and the brand new Sassafras Lass Big Bottom paper (that will be added to the site when our migration is complete).

But I didn't stop there! You see, I finished this page last night - so when I woke up this morning I had a table full of paper shrapnel. So I did exactly what I preach in all of my QK classes.  I whipped up a card, using only what was in front of me and only the supplies I had out.


Okay, actually I cheated just a bit.  I added a white card base and a little QK Heart that I cut out of the backside of my Sassafras paper. It literally went together before my pot of coffee was done brewing!  I'm going to stick it in the mail this afternoon, to my mother. That's a bonus project AND brownie points!

So Annie - there is Rollerskate. It's an awesome font. It's small - that's true. But if you refer back to my Scotch-Tape-Trick I think you'll find it very easy to work with. And darn - you just end up with so many letters that I just might make a few more cards while I'm waiting for the next load of laundry to finish.

If you have any other questions - shoot 'em my way. You all drive our business - and we're here to help anyway we can!

And to Ms. Gem - my favorite commenter - THANKS! Your sweet comments are always so nice to see on posts! Please go ahead and borrow my Chicago layout idea. I'm flattered!

PEACE!

Hi Susan, Hope you are doing well. Here (I know, finally) is the recipe for yummy Gooey Butter Cookies!

8 ounces cream cheese (1 package)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 package yellow cake mix (standard sized 18.5oz)
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, and stir until well blended. Roll into 1" balls and then roll the balls in powdered sugar. Place 1" apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes.

Very easy to make and addicting to eat, they really are yummy. Let me know if there's any questions. I'm waiting to hear the details about the Scrap-Mart Design Team!!

Cute stuff! That tape trick you posted about revolutionized (sorry for the pun) my QK alpha useage. Seriously. Those tiny alphas are so much easier to use now. I've told everyone I know about it too!
