How do you play?

It's obvious what Regina Easter does when she has time to play! She whips out her paper, her cutting machines, her sewing machine, and her miles of creativity. I love seeing what new projects she comes up with. Using DB Kapow for the title and LD Little Piggy for text, both on sale Tuesday during ScrapNfonts Parade of Products, she came up with this clever card.

I LOVE the details she puts into her projects. She also used DB Bugs for the mosquito. Check out those little jewel eyes and the raised body.

And the stitching, button, and hemp bow? So cute!

A card like this would sure make my day if I was feeling a little under the weather! Thanks for sharing your talent, Regina.

My favorite photo

Do you have certain photos that you just love and can use them over and over again? I took a photo 4 years ago just after my niece climbed on top of my husband in a hammock at my family's cabin. It was at our family's 4th of July BBQ, and just looking at it I can imagine the smell of the grill, the warmth of the air, and the sound of the lake water lapping at the shore. It was such a sweet moment. I think I've used this photo in at least four different projects around my house.
To me, this picture is the epitome of summertime, family, picnics and the 4th of July. I love it and couldn't resist using it in this layout.
The scrapNfonts product used in this layout are in the Parade of Products and on sale today. The products I used are: Post Stamp Brushes, Post Master Brushes, TXT Delicate Script, and the Summertime Word art (free through Tuesday).

Thanks for looking!

DoodleBat Lovin'

It's amazing to me how many fabulous things can be done with DoodleBats! The fact that they can be scaled to any size because they are a font makes them tremendously versatile. I've been super impressed with some of these submissions to the ScrapNfonts idea gallery, I just wanted to share:
This bear card is by Virginia from KS. Another bonus to DoodleBats being fonts is that they work in several scrapbooking cutting machines, which is what it looks like was used for this bear from DB Animal Occasion. Find out how to do this here.

DoodleBats can also be an oh so subtle background, like in this LO by Britta using DB Dainty Swirl.

I think this card is adorable by Teri Berrios using DB Dress Up for the shape of the dress.

Here's another LO using a DoodleBat as the main image frame by Keela Fox. (DB Woodsy Journal)

Regina Easter is a fabulous crafter, and here she uses a DB as a tag, adding her own color and darling details. (DB Christmas Fun Doodles)
Find more inspiration for using DoodleBats in the ScrapNfonts idea gallery, and shop for DoodleBats here.
