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)

    Check out this fabulous baby quilt I received as a gift from my sister-in-law.

    Is that not one of the cutest blankets you've ever seen? The fabrics are adorable and the quilt is a work of art.

    I've noticed there are a lot of similarities in trends for quilt fabric and craft paper. It inspired me to try to blur the lines a little with a layout inspired by this quilt. It was really fun and I used the fonts from the new Jillustration Sweet Nothings bundle.

    The title font, LDJ Mac n Cheese, is really neat! Have you ever seen an outline script font like that? Jill, the artist behind Jillustration, really takes the cake with that font. The lowercase letters are the connecting ones, the capital letters are capped on the left side so they can start the word, and you need to type the right bracket ] to cap off the end of the word. So to type the title, I had to type: No], Thanks]. But seriously, it's such a cool result!
