Every time the wonderful Dollar Days at Lettering Delights rolls around I see lots of questions popping up about which fonts are good for diecutting. So I put together a list of 10 popular Doodlebats that work great with SCAL or MTC and a Cricut. These are images that can be cut as is, without cleanup or separating the pieces, so they are great for beginners. What they have in common is that they are more of less silhouettes with clean lines and not too much detail. Have a look at these and you’ll be better able to evaluate other Doodlebats and/or artwork from other sources.

You may also want to look at the Lettering Delights Clip Art sets as many of them have line art (black and white) versions that are just as easy to trace and use as coloring book images.
Update: Jin over at Under a Cherry tree just posted a great guide to picking Lettering Delights products. You will want to spend some time at the blog looking at her projects. She really know how to make these Lettering Delights files sing.
