Go Ape with Hand Cut Titles

Jo Boland GoGo Getaway DT Go Ape

Just a few days to go until the next GoGo Getaway retreat in Hertfordshire and I’m sharing my last take on a class taught at our June retreat. Hand cut lettering from Louise’s class ‘Letterbox’, such a fab idea for making bright colourful titles.

Here’s Louise’s class layout…

….and my layout from the retreat…

I took the inspiration from Louise’s class and made a layout about my boys and I doing Go Ape for my youngest son’s 13th birthday treat. I chose papers from the Crate Paper ‘Here+There’ collection and cut out huge uppercase letters with a craft knife.

Here’s some close ups…

I used washi tape and embellishments from the same collection and drew fake black stitching around the letters to make them stand out. I also popped up each letter on foam pads for even more impact.

The layout is matted with a paper from an older Jen Hadfield collection for Pebbles Inc, I added an old October afternoon label and splattered gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine over the page.
