But when the store bought doesn't fit with my color or patterns OR I've run out of letters and have to use un-matching pieces from different sets...I simply alter them to make them match!
On this title, I started with some pretty, shiny, patterned letters. I needed a P and didn't have one so I used a lower case "d" instead-- don't tell! (If you run out of other letters, try to cut pieces off like to make an "R" into a "P" or add a button, star or flower in place of a missing letter.
YIKES!!! I was busy crafting and taking pics, and didn't notice that the P from "Pass" was not in the photo!
PS-- EVEN if they have adhesive on the back, I ALWAYS glue them down with the Best Glue Ever™. I've just had too many self-adhesive embellishments fall off if I didn't secure them with a bit of glue!
Here's the left half of the finished two-page layout. Photos, paper, a tiny embellie or two and the title makes the page complete--Oh and at least for me, I must have the journaling. (My journaling is on the right hand page...)
