Resource - tips & tricks: chipboard alpha 5 ways
Chipboard alphabets 5 ways! There are so many things you can do with this stuff! Since chipboard is thicker than alphabet stickers, I find that the possibilities are endless! Here are 5 different techniques to get you started!
Layout One: Negative Space Lots of different chipboard alphabets come with negative space attached to the alphabet... that makes it 2 alphabets in 1 package! I like that! So here I used the letter 'U' directly on the photo and used letter stickers for the rest of the title. So, double check your alphabet before tossing out the 'scraps'! You can still use them!
Layout Two: Journaling I got this tip from Shannon Tidwell... I love how the letters look on the lined paper! And since the font is bold and simple, it makes it very easy to read. These are especially useful chip alphas because they are self adhesive! All you have to do is peel and stick. I love that!
Birthday Card: Decorate with rubons or stickers You can also add paint, rubber stamps, patterned paper....anything really! Since most chipboard letters/numbers are fairly large, they give you plenty of room to customize them! Here, I added Basic Grey rubons to the numbers.
Door Hanger: Make designs For this, I used the letters 'W' and 'V' to make an interesting shape around the door hanger. I also thought of using letter 'O' and the letters 'U' and 'N'. Look at the letters with a different perspective and all kinds of shapes can be made!
Gift: Hanging I love the idea of hanging chipboard letters. You can do so on layouts, cards and gifts! You can hang them off a photo or a photo mat, or maybe off a journaling block! Here I used an initial and a flower. It's so cute you don't even have to wrap your present!
