Whatever Wednesday

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!  Today is Whatever Wednesday over on My Creative Time blog
Today I created this Easter Layout with pictures going way back!  It's great to get pictures scrapped!!
Want a tip on how to get your die cut letters straight for cards and layouts......check out below for the trick I use!
 Close up of the dies I used ~ loving the letters!
Products Used:
Paper & Stickers: Doodlebug Designs ~ Springtime Collection
My Creative Time Products: Hello Chickie!
Buttons, Twine and Sprinkles

Alphabet die cut letters are awesome but sometimes placing these letters straight can be challenging. I place my letters where I want them, using a t-ruler to get them straight and then I take a piece of removable Scotch tape and place it over my letters.

Once they're stuck to the tape I lift it off and then using a glue pen, I glue the letters. 

I then take the tape and place the letters where I want them, press down on the letters to adhere them and then gently peel the tape away.
Walla, the letters are all placed exactly where I want them and straight!  Hope this tip helps you with die cut letters!
