Substituting Die Cuts for Letters

I had a bunch of letter stickers for my title “Holding Brother,” but I had to find an extra R and had too few of the letter O. So I was trying to figure out what to do and I found an R that would work, then it hit me to use those die cuts as stand-ins for the letter O. They have the words “pure” and “happiness” printed on them and that conveys another message on my page without taking away from the title.

I had bought a page of these die cut sentiments a long time ago and I have flipped past them many times as I search for the right embellishments on my pages. So I had a few to choose from but settled on these two because of the sentiment they convey when put together.

I think the page came out simply adorable.  So when you are looking for letters or ideas on how to get more out of your titles, remember you can substitute an embellishment for a letter or two. This can be a great way to use up those little scraps and leftovers that you don’t necessarily want to toss out but you haven’t found a use for yet.
