XL October Alpha Inspiration!

When our October Kits began arriving in the eager hands of our design team members, I heard a little rumor that the oversized alphabet set in the Artisan Add-on might be difficult to use.  Hmmm . . . I will let you be the judge of that!

Doris Sander (that's me!) used them as an abbreviation for her son's favorite campout of the year.  She will also be back later this month with a birthday banner tutorial!  Stay tuned!

The alphas probably work most easily as a short title.  Jill got extra style points with hers by going vertical.  (p.s. Thanks, Jill, for the sequins on a string inspiration above! ;).

Another clever approach that is seen more than once in the gallery, is to use the letters as part of a larger title.  Here Amanda has the cute two word sentence, "I Roar!" The "I" is in the oversized alpha while the "roar" is handwritten onto a speech bubble coming off it..  Too awesome.

If you want to use a larger word title, try breaking it up as our guest, Katie Scott did here.  The enlarged title across the page makes a very striking design statement.

And, of course, there is the classic monogram as seen here by the every classy, Lisa Dickinson.

Be sure to check out the Design Team Gallery!  There are even more ideas there!

What do you think?  Have you found some inspiration yet?  Ready to tackle those oversized alphas?  Yes?  Then go forth and create!  :)
