Just My Type! (LSS Challenge #4)

Letters, Fonts and Words...Oh My! Wherever you turn nowadays, typography seems to be front and center as "art." Subway art, chalkboard's everywhere. And with so many cool fonts out there, why shouldn't it be?

So here's this week's challenge I'm issuing for the Last Scrapper Standing Contest at Memorable Seasons - create a layout in which typography is front and center. Meaning, the typography must be a major design element on your page.

Here's my example I created using my February Fancy Pants Love Note kit. I decided to go with the card featuring the alphabet that has "I {HEART} U" embedded in it. The alphabet serves as the big design feature on my page next to my photo and also the "I {HEART} U" serves as the title of my page.

(Supplies: Bazzill cardstock; Fancy Pants papers; Heidi Swapp and unknown chipboard alphas and hearts; Studio Calico wood veneer and Mr. Huey’s mist; miscellaneous doily, sequins, ribbon and date stamp; Crafters Workshop template; Signo pen, Close To My Heart and StazOn ink.)
And then I thought I'd also remind you of this layout I created for my two-page sketch tutorial back in December. On this layout, I used a variety of different alphas and embellished each word for creative title treatment; when I say “embellished” I mean that used brown Thickers for the word “brown”, covered the word “paper” with mulberry paper, put a package sticker behind the word “package”, etc.
(Supplies: Bazzill and American Crafts cardstock; Jillibean Soup papers; American Crafts, Heidi Swapp and Cricut alphas; KI Memories jelly embellishments; The Paper Co mulberry paper; Doodlebug brads; Die Cuts With A View sticker; Studio Calico wood veneers; Jillibean Soup and Divine twine; Jillibean Soup tiny alphas; StazOn ink; Sharpie marker.)

I am so excited to see what you all create! Hopefully, you'll be able to find that right font, word or letter that screams to you, "That's just my type!"
