Lots of alphas...

This week at Lasting Memories, the theme is inspired by Back to School time in the northern hemisphere, with a challenge to feature lots of letters or numbers on your layout.  ** The layout does NOT need to be related to school **

I am away from home with limited supplies, and my layout is a little plainer than usual, but I think that adds to the impact of the letters:

What I did: I kept the 'negative' paper left behind after die-cutting a set of lowercase alphabet letters, and I used it as a feature. I backed my title letters (NSW) with a contrasting colour, and then backed the whole lot with an old book page. Lots and lots of letters!  I used some offcut strips of patterned paper, and framed each piece with some basic doodling and penwork.

This layout is also for the August challenge at Just Two Midwest Girls - Use every letter of the alphabet and for Flying Unicorns Mix'n'Match Your Stash.

MFT Die-namics - Little Letters Lower Case dies
Basic Grey Sublime - Raspberry Blue patterned paper
Basic Grey Lime Rickey - Rob Roy patterned paper
American Crafts Chap - Tim patterned paper


  1. Definitely not too plain! AMAZING!

  2. Love that page - very masculine and the letters are just a great idea!

  3. you did an incredible job for being away from your supplies. I love love love the use of the negative. very neat making your title out of it too. Ill add that to my tip drawer for next time!
