NEW FONT!!! Sketchnoting Dingbats



I have a new font!  About time, right?!

This time it is all dingbats that are commonly used when sketchnoting in meetings, but i love to make lists with different bullets so these all make me very happy!  There are SEVENTY TWO different dingbats!  The beauty of having them in font form is that they can be easily resized and printed out to make a blank lists, or even printed onto label paper to make stickers ready for use anywhere.   If you have a Cricut or Silhouette it would be easy to cut the labels out ... that's what I plan to do as soon as I get done here.  I LOVE STICKERS!









 OU!  Just had a thought, I need a dingbat font for calendars (I LOVE stickers for calendars!)  

But first I'm going to make a font for Bible labels!

This font is ready for purchase HERE:  Buy now

DIY Acrylic Binder Inserts ... Recycle!

A few days ago someone on Facebook asked where to get these:





I will admit that these strips are not that expensive but if you need them in a hurry and you have the supplies on hand .....  My first response was "make them yourself" and I explained how I would do it...today I decided to do a little tutorial.

1- find heavy plastic that is at least 9.5" long.  I have used transparencies in the past 





but today I wanted to recycle something...  I used this SPELLBINDERS packaging.



2- Cut the edges off so that you have only the two flat pieces



3- Stick Scor-Pal double stick tape on the very edge of one of the plastic sheets then cut it .75" away from the tape so you now have a strip of acrylic about 1.25" wide (if you use .5" wide Scor-pal tape.

...continue until you have all you need or you run out of packaging... I was able to get a total of six from this packaging...plus a couple more strips I can add .25" to.



4- Using a sheet of 3 hole punched paper mark your hole placement with a sharpie.



5- Punch the three holes... I used a heavy duty punch drill to punch through three pieces at a time, that way I only had to mark one.  You can probably tell from this close up that the three strips are different sizes...sorry!  I didn't measure, I just cut.



6- I removed the protective paper and stuck the piece of acrylic to the back side of a ruler...of course it can be stuck to the back of most anything you want to add to your 3 ring binder.



And here it is in my binder, ready when I need it!

Just FYI this is my SCRAPRACK Create and Carry Binder 

that I am loading with all my jewelry making tools, beads and findings.... So now I have a quick, ready to travel jewelry making kit!  So, I will definitely need a ruler!
