I finally did this challenge but not the twist. I have had this pack of chipboard alpha letters since Stampin Up came out with them. I inked them up and used them.

I'm sorry I think I messed up. I used 2 different alphas but one was a stamped alpha and this morning it hit me that the challenge was probably for packaged alphas. Let me know and I'll remove it. Thanks and sorry.

Loving everyone's work!

Sue - Sorry! I actually thought the smaller alpha were stickers, but you are right, stamping doesn't work for this one this time. It's fine that you shared it here though. You don't need to remove it.

Lisa -

Is this enough for gold?

This Layout Brought 2 U By the Letter "C" By Doreena

I had this challenge in mind, as well, when I created this layout.
But after I was done I thought that it probably wasn't enough...

If it isn't, no problem, I'll just make another one.

Oh, and if it is enough, I included the twist of metal: I used 3 gold eyelets.

Let me know, please.
Thanks!

Hello! Taking advantage of DD's sick day to take photos in the daylight and drop off one for the challenge. This is for Category 1: Alphas. I did the twist - the arrow is made of a lower case L and a lower case v, and I used the little periods in the alpha set to create a divider between the two photos.

For the twist - you can do whatever you want. I'm interested to see what you come up with.

I was thinking this twist is a good way to use up odd letters in those packs that are out of vowels or whatever. In my example on the front page, I used 'Y's as arms for the snowman. Another time, I used 'V's and 'W's to make fringe on a scarf on another embellie. I'm planning to do something with using random letters to make a border or a background or something - not quite sure yet.



genius, I never thought to do something like that!!

Stickers, chipboard, rub-on, die-cut - those are all fine - any kind of physical letter or number. Just not stamping or computer printing this time.
