Good morning!! Here's another company near and dear to my heart . . . Say It With Letters! And I'm not just saying that because I'm their design team either!! I spent plenty of my own $$$ there before answering a dt call (sssshhh, don't tell my dh!). I love making cards - we all do right?! But sometimes I like to do something just a little bit different, break out of a rut, you know??
Say It With Letters is a great little company right here in New England, Manchester, NH to be exact! Owned and run by Deb Damboise and her husband (with their adorable twin babies help I'm sure!) they make and sell custom cut letters and shapes available in hundreds of lettering styles and several adorable designs! The shapes are custom cut, hand sanded and unfinished and made from sturdy 1/2 inch thick MDF (super smooth surface for painting, decoupaging or embellishing.) Each shape can be made anywhere from 6" up to 48"!!! Now that would be a big piece! :)
There are so many possibilities with these shapes - paint, decoupage, patterned paper, fabric, etc., etc. Check out Deb's blog to see all the beautiful work of the design team as well as gorgeous work from customers! It's amazing how different each piece can look and how creative people are! I altered this adorable house last year as a housewarming gift for a friend. It was so much fun making it with someone in mind (after I photographed it, I wrote in the actual date they closed on their house so they always have that reminder!).
Deb has been so generous to Stamp New England - giving us a fabulous discount on supplies for a class and also offering a door prize for some lucky attendee . . . it could be you!! Go browse around the store, I know you'll find something to love! :)
