I really like using die cut lettering and stencils for my pages, but I'm too cheap to pay for them, so here's a tip you might like.

I print out the alphabet (fairly large) on plain paper and tape it to a flexible cutting mat I purchased at a dollar store. It is slightly thinner than stencil plastic & 3 times the size for about 1/5th the cost. Then I use my craft knife to cut out the alpha. I can use it to stencil directly on my page or, if I made the alpha big enough, I can use my blade runner to cut out the alpha for die cut lettering.

Hope you can use this little tip...
