Strike a Pose - Letter Stickers

Supplies : Paper by My Minds Eye and Piggytales; Glitter Thickers by American Crafts; Chipboard Journal Tags by My Minds Eye;

Though you probably buy letter stickers to use for making titles there are some other fun pieces in those packages that can go overlooked. Things like brackets, asteriks, and periods which can all be used to embellish your page. Here instead of using brackets to accent a title, I used them to emphasize the photo Audrey struck a pose in. Use the brackets to highlight journaling, a special embellishment or keepsake, or a photo like I did in this layout. The asteriks in the package were used as fun flower embellishments on the page. Asteriks can be used much like the periods - use them alone, over punched shapes or circles, and even as flower centers. Circle periods can even take the place of brads or eyelets on the right layout. Look at the letters, numbers, and shapes in your alpha packages and think of how you can use them to embellish a page or a card. Make Monogram cards to use up single letters or for an extra simple subtitle or addition to your journaling on a layout. Add punctuation to your titles or as an embellishment at the end of some creative journaling, even a fun card. Enjoy the page and have a great Wednesday!
