I came up with the title for this page when I was having a problem getting my photos printed at Walgreen's and on the phone they were telling me which pics they had and the guy said:"I've got a picture of a band." So the Derby St. Band was born!
The technique: I finally used those Heidi Swapp ghost letters I bought months ago, I used alcohol ink to color them yellow and ran them through the xyron for adhesive. I wish they came in a smaller size.

The layout I did yesterday is a great way to use up letter stickers. I hate letter stickers, but I have hundreds of them! If the stickers are repositionable you can use them as I did below, just stick them on, then use a thin coat of acrylic paint over the top, let the paint dry and then take them off.
Click on the layout below, "My Space", to see how cool it looks up close!

When you finish a layout don't put those scraps away! Use your scraps to make a card or two. That's much better than filing them away and forgetting to use the leftovers. After I finished this layout I had enough scraps to make two cards. Even better idea don't put the card away instead drop a line to a friend and make their day.

If you're like me you have a tons of chipboard and sticker letters with lots of a Q,X and Zs leftover.
Use your Zs on a layout of a sleeping baby, dog or cat, or any one catching some ZZZZZZZZs. The X and Q-cut the Q to make it an O, then use them both in XOXO (Hugs and Kisses), and Valentine's Day is coming so use XOXO on your cards. Also, a U can become and N when you turn upside down in some letters sets.
Totally off this subject but http://frugalities.com/ has a 49% off everything today and at that price I totally broke my resolution of not buying supplies until I use up some stash!

My Friends layout below features one of my hardware store finds. The black mesh I found in screen dept. I got a hugh roll of the stuff for $6. I can see several ways to use it, the Friends layout I made the hearts out of wire and then secured them to the screen.
It would be great to cut in squares, it cuts easily, and mount charms with wire. You could mat pictures, use on an alter art project and many other ways.
I also bought some washers and a skeleton key. Best of all, these things were WAY cheaper than buying at the local scrapbook store. Just go roam around Home Depot or Lowe's and you can find all sorts of goodies!
