There are lots of free fonts available on the web. Go to About.com for a list of free font links at this address: http://scrapbooking.about.com/od/fonts/Fonts.htm.
Some of these links are specifically designed for scrapbookers. We found this cool Ale & Wenches font. Just follow the instructions on the website and download them to your hard drive.
Check your computer's instruction manual to find out where your fonts are stored or use your help function on your computer. Some software programs require you to reboot before your font will show up.
