I loved the corrugated letters this month. I loved the endless possibilities with them. Just off the top of my head I can think of several things you could do with these kraft corrugated letters by Jilly Bean Soup.

  • paint
  • chalk
  • diamond glaze
  • naked
  • ink
  • emboss
  • stamp

Have you thought about what you would do with them?

I decided to use a quote that I love - in typical me fashion I didn't really plan ahead. SO... didn't have enough letters, but Scrapbooks-Plus has a very generous Design Team and they helped me out with the letters I was missing, thanks guys!

I also never know what I am designing until I sit down with my project. I am not a person to spend hours/days on my layouts or even to plan them out before hand. Once I got my letters down I knew that I needed to POP my letters a little more or else they were going to get lost on the layout. Of course, I didn't realize this until my letters were all placed down on the layout! OH CRUD, now what? I have to be honest, I didn't know if it would work or not but I just took my Staz-On black ink and rubbed it over the top of my letters, crossed my fingers and went to town. Guess what? It worked! I was super excited and ended up loving how it turned out! The good thing was I didn't have to hold each individual piece and get ink all over my hands, and I would love to tell you that this was all premediated. I'm not that organized!

Have a great weekend - enjoy your Halloween and be safe!

I agree - I love these!! While I really like how they look "raw," I inked mine w/ Distress Ink and sprayed them w/ a mist.

It's a great quote ~ words to live by! Loved what you did with those letters ~ they're such a cool look! Great tip on the Staz-On, too!
