Here's one more freebie to add to your collection while we continue our wait for the new LD site:
Click HERE or the image above to go to the LD site, add the DB Summer Vacation Doodlebat font (a.k.a. dingbat) to your cart and check out! You pay $0!
Use the doodlebat/dingbat with your Silhouette machine in the same way as you would a font- install the doodlebat on your computer before bringing the image onto the virtual mat by using the Text tool.
Bear in mind that some shapes may cut better than others. Even though you do not need to trace the doodlebat image to get the cutting lines, it would be a good idea to check that the design is suitable for cutting before sending it to the cutting machine. For example, in the screenshot above, the dragonfly and the butterfly would cut out just fine without any modifications or adjustments. I would probably remove one of the two inner circles of the sun to get a cleaner cut. I would also avoid cutting out the swing because there are a lot of stray and crooked lines in the design. Those lines will affect the quality of the cutout.
