Hello, my name is Lindsay and I’m a font-a-holic. I can’t resist funky fonts and adorable dingbats. It seems my habit has been getting out of hand as I can’t even remember all of the dingbats I have. It all started when I got Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) software more than 2 years ago. With SCAL I can cut my fonts and dingbats with my cricut machine and it is $15 off right now! I found some adorable doodlebats at Lettering Delights and began my awesome dingbat collection. All of the Lettering Delights products including all of the doodlebats and dingbats are on sale for a dollar right now so you can build your collection too! I devised a way to keep track of my collection of dingbats and I’ll show you how but first here is a 2 page layout of my niece’s wedding, my daughters were the flower girls:
See the frame around the group shot, that is a from a doodlebat font (DB Frilly Frames) now before I came up with my binder system to organize my dingbats I would have to hunt and peck through several dingbat fonts until I found a frame that would work but now I can just look through my binder and see at a glance what I have. Here is an example of my binder pages:
The Lettering delights doodlebats come with a printable reference sheet (right side) if you download the zip file but I usually just downloaded the font file only so I used an online dingbat character map to print a contact sheet (left side).
The online character map could not read all of the fonts so for the ones that It could not work with I simply typed put all of the characters of the font (a,b,c,d,e,f,g) and printed it out for my reference. I saved the file so I can just highlight it and change the font if I come across another dingbat I want to print. (see right side of the photo below)
Here are close-ups of the wedding pages, I used my crinkle seam binding and some die cuts including my new ticket svg die cuts from the Fun Fair SVG set, those tickets are versatile! The dress digital stamp is a freebie you can snag here.
This project qualifies for the following challenges: Alotta Rubberstamps (fairytale), OTWC #24 (photo inspiration), Oldie but a Goodie (new beginnings theme-the small ticket stamps are a year old and the large ticket stamps-dominoes really are pushing 7 years old!), Stampin For the Weekend (shabby/vintage), Cute Daisy May and Really Reasonable Ribbon(flowers), Wild Orchid (Pearls & Pins) and the sketch from Sweet Peach Crop Shop.
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
