Shapes and Letters and a Winner...Oh My!

We'd like to start by saying a great big thank you to everyone who participated in our Cigar Box challenge! We received so many different entries and are amazed at how creative everyone got with just a basic box shape. We are also excited to announce that Vicki is the RAK winner - big congrats! If you haven't seen the boxes already, please take a look through the Cigar Box gallery.

On to the March news! We have joined forces with Deb Damboise from Say It With Letters online store for our altered letter or shape challenge. If you haven't heard of this shopping source, get going over there right now! Their shapes are custom cut, hand sanded and unfinished. They are made from sturdy 1/2 inch thick MDF (super smooth surface for painting, decoupaging or embellishing.) There are even keyholes cut in the back for easy hanging on all shapes. Deb has provided some shapes to include in our March prize pack: 3 inch X & O letters and their new mermaid shape (shown below). Thanks so much, Deb!

You can find wooden and paper mache letters and shapes at a variety of discount stores and most of the major craft stores. One additional note about Say It With Letters - they are able to do custom orders for unique items and wholesale orders as well, so just send them an email with any questions you might have.

We will be accepting altered letters and/or shapes throughout the month of March. Just link us to your blog or gallery upload in the comments section of this post or email us your image. Then keep checking back to the Letters & Shapes gallery as we add your projects. Here are the Say It With Letters projects made by our designers:

Patti West

Jan Tatomir (letter on altered canvas)



Jolene Johnston

Happy altering!
