W is for Words...GCD Studios ABC's...

W is for words.  Lately, one of the "word" trends I have been seeing a lot of is people using their die cutting machine to create word titles and phrases, and using the negative shapes on their pages.  I decided to give this a go using my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software.

For my words, I chose some of the nicknames that we have for my little guy.  I typed each name and then welded the letters together.  Then I added an arrow shape over each set of words and cut them on my machine.

To help my words stand out a bit more, I decided the outline them with a black pen.

I fussy cut some of the stars from the Super Star paper (from the Country Charm line) and scattered them on the page.  Little strips of yellow paper that I tore and crumpled kinda look like Washi (another "W" word!).

How do you use WORDS on your page???
