Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop - Tech Savvy - Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies

Hi Crafters!

Today I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Crew with a Technique themed hop. I thought I'd show you the notebooks & name tags I made for the girls who attended my recent Stamp Camp. I asked them all what they're favourite colours were & custom made them. I used the Layering Alphabet dies to cut all the letters & I've used both positive & negative die cuts. All names have been matted on Basic Black cardstock.

Koren likes red, pink & purple, so I've used Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon, with Gorgeous Grape & Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Sandra likes light green & purple, so I've used Gorgeous Grape Mini Stripe Ribbon with Gorgeous Grape & Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Thea likes green, so I've used Call Me Clover Grosgrain Ribbon with Call Me Clover & Shaded Spruce cardstock.

Sarah likes blue, so I've used Blueberry Bushell Grosgrain Ribbon with Blueberry Bushell & Balmy Blue cardstock.

Jenny likes turquoise & purple, so I've used Coastal Cabana Ribbon (Tea Room Combo Pack) with Coastal Cabana & Gorgeous Grape cardstock.

Bronny likes mauve & purple, so I've used Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon with Gorgeous Grape & Highland Heather cardstock.

In order to make my names, I've cut the cardstock to 7.5cm squares & then lined up the top of the letter die with the top of the cardstock & centered in horizontally. I found the letters were all straight as long as the top of the die & the top of the cardstock were lined up. When using the negatives, I found I had to add a bit more cardstock underneath for the wider letters like 'h' & 'n'. I also needed a spare square to either start off the pattern or end it.

For the positives, you start with the spare square at the end & place your letters, working backwards, ending with the first letter of the name. For the negatives, you start with the spare square & then place your letters going forwards, ending with the last letter of the name.

I've used Adhesive Sheets to stick the names onto the Notebooks. I've also used the Glitter Enamel Dots & the retired gold bulldog clips, but you could use the Gold Library Clips.
