I Can Has Cheeseburger

Todd made tofu and broccoli with wild rice last night, so I had it for dinner after my gym class. Then I had the leftovers for lunch at work today. Photobucket Don't get me wrong, I really do like this dish. But after two meals of it, I felt really hungry at dinner time. Photobucket The tofu/broccoli and the cheeseburger/fries cancel each other out, right?? Photobucket I feel like I finally have good ideas for my scrap pages again. For the whole summer I've felt really uncreative, like something was blocking my ideas. I used templates to get through that. When I do have good ideas/inspiration, I use a sketch notebook to draw/write them down. Because I know the creative well will dry up again someday, and I'll really need my notebook then! The ebb and flow of creativity is really interesting to me. How do you keep it going? What inspires you? Scrap N Fonts is having their semi-annual $1 sale right now! All fonts and doodlebats are $1! I love it when they have these sales. I love doodlebats. They're fonts, so they're vector graphics (meaning they don't lose details no matter how big you make them), but there's all kinds of great shapes and graphics you can buy. (And free ones too, just google around.) Then you can use each doodlebat character on your layout by typing the associated keyboard stroke for that graphic (the SNF ones come with a PDF cheat sheet), then rasterize (or simplify) it. Then you can use it as a clipping mask! Take this layout as an example: Photobucket Click here for credits. The graphics on the orange border are all doodlebats. And that big hammer in the middle? It's a free doodlebat font that I rasterized and used as a clipping mask for the blue paper. Isn't that cool???

  1. Hehe, I came to think about the web-page icanhascheezburger.com when I read your title, and as it has cats in it I love it! Your hamburger plate looks delicious too, and I definately think the tofu evens it out. =)

    Thanks for the tip with thd doodlebats. I've seen them but never quite find a way to use them. Maybe I'll give it another try.

  2. It's like going to class when I read your blog! First, I learned all about sailing and starboard and port..and now, I'm learning about doodlebats. I have to admit, I've never heard of them before. One more thing to add to your digi-scrap class in California on the beach..you know, the one where you will share some of that delicious cheeseburger???

    Have a great day!
