I used Authentique Bloom (reverse side) for the letter 'L', Grow (reverse side) for the letter 'U', Together for the letter 'C' and Harmony for the letter 'Y'. I drew around the letters first, cut them out, stuck them on with a glue stick and then trimmed the edges with a Fiskars finger knife (I have had this for years and it is great). I then sanded the edges to get rid of any rough bits and then inked with an ink pad.
I haven't done much decorating of this album yet as I haven't decided on what photographs to use but I did add some lovely orange ribbon from Kuretake (from my own stash) to the last letter to add some texture without too much bulk.
I did make a start on the front cover (first letter) by using some My Mind's Eye rub-ons (Wild Asparagus), which consists of several swirls and leaves as well as as selection of different family words. I had some Prima Essentials 10 flowers in brown, which went perfectly with the colour scheme of this paper range and added some Prima pearls in the centres. The words precious girl are from the rub-ons sheet.
When the page is turned over (I covered this with some Authentique 'Grow' patterned paper) you can see that I have added some of the rub-on words from the MME Wild Asparagus sheet to describe the recipient. I am going to add the words 'Sister' and the phrase 'Some words to describe you' using SafMat and my computer.
Obviously, this is a work in progress and I will upload pages as and when I complete them. Hopefully, I aim to get this finished for Christmas to add in as another little gift.
