How to add an outline to lettering and Craftsy Webby Award Voting

The voting is now open! 
Craftsy has been nominated for the Webby Awards.  I had the pleasure of working with this wonderful organization for a year now.  They are so dedicated to making instruction available to crafters all over the world.  Please click on the link below to vote for Craftsy.  The Webby Awards are like the Oscars for the Internet, and nominees are chosen by a 1000+ member judging panel from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. Unlike the Oscars, the Webby Awards have a People's Voice Category that lets the public vote on who should win.  Please show your support for Craftsy!

On another note.....There was a comment posted quite a while back that I didn't receive notification of until I looked tonight as I was about to post.  The Anonymous posted didn't give an email address for a response, so here you go.  The question was how do I get an outline around fonts.  The process is pretty easy.  Click on the Text tool.  Select your font from the pull down menu.  On the Top of the page you will see a text attributes tab (this is where you selected your font).  You should see Satin stitch with a zigzag looking icon next to it and above that a blank space and a grayed out wavy line (when you hover over it you should see Line Sew).  If you click on the wavy line, this turns on the outline.  Click on the design page to activate the text tool, type in your text and then press Enter on the keyboard.  Your text should automatically be selected by the Select tool (it will have black squares around it).  You can select a different font from the pull down menu or change the outline style from the Line Sew Pull down menu.

For the person who wanted the Little Black Dress files from the It's Sew Easy Show, those are on my website on the free designs page.

Enjoy and please vote!
