To create the background of my 8x8 page, I splattered 3 different paints onto the white cardstock before layering all of my papers and Scout's photo. The Memory Box papers I used are Valise Bill of Sale, Valise Keepsake, distressed dots mango cardstock, and distressed dots pool cardstock. I then die cut all of the letters out of the mango and pool cardstock and adhered them to the page. The letters were cut from these Memory Box dies: Large Typewriter uppercase alpha, Large Typewriter lowercase alpha, Typewriter lowercase alpha.
Once the letters were on the page, I then sewed through them with my sewing machine for a fun look. And to finish, I added all of my embellishments and my journaling written on the pool cardstock also.
So, if you don't have any of the Memory Box alphabet dies yet, you really should pick up a few. They are SO versatile, and I especially love how the new large alphabets work so well with the smaller alphas. They both work great on cards and layouts too! Thanks for joining me today!
