ABCDEFG...or how about and M, N, and A

Hi there! Today I wanted to share with you the "big" project I have been working on this week. I didn't make too many cards this week, but I did however make these really cool altered giant letters. I have been wanting to do this for a while now, but just never bought the letters. I saw these at Jo-Anns the other day, and they were on sale, sooo I bought them. (Yes I am an impulse shopper...lol.) I then went to work on them...grabbed the Mod Podge and some paper and here is what I came up with. This letter is for my oldest DD...who is a super crazy Harry Potter fan. I used this Harry Potter paper from Creative Inspirations. I then used some of the chipboard stickers, "shiny" stickers, and a regular sticker to decorate. I used my Cricut to cut the name from some more Harry Potter paper. #2...This is my for middle DD, who loves all things girly and Tinkerbell. I had this paper in my stash from a while ago. I then used some chipboard letters for her name. The heart is also a chipboard embellishment, and I added some liquid pearls to it. Next I took some flowers, and layered them to make a big giant flower, and added a cord brad from Nikki Sivils. The last one is for my youngest DD. Now...let me just say...she does NOT like the flower I added...lol. She actually threw a tantrum because I put it on there, but it needed something there...so I put it on anyway. I am sure in time she will get over it. I let her pick her background paper, which is just some I had in my stash. I used chipboard letters for her name, and added some chipboard butterflies. I used purple stickles on the butterflies too. Last, I added the layered flower with a butterfly brad in the center.

Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget there is still time to get in to win the $20 QKR Stampede gift certificate. Scroll down, and check out our DT Hop!

Nice job! I did letters one year for all my greats and they loved them. They are fun to make aren't they? I have one in my craft room with my name on it too. You can do so much with them and they really add something personal to the room. Very nice!
