Large Letters – Using Vellum to line them up!

Hello!  One of the products I was most excited about in the new catalogue was the Large Letters framelits & coordinating stamp set.  They are bold and impressive!

They are also a big ticket item, which makes a dent in anyone’s craft budget.

So, what are the best ways to purchase this set?

Here’s 5 quick ideas on how to get the Large Letters bundle to you with a discount…
{note all dollar values are in Australian currencies}

  1. Buy as a bundle – saving yourself 10% (over $25)
  2. Add another item (or 2) to your order, bumping yourself up to $250 and receive $25+ in rewards
  3. Hold a workshop with your family & friends, share your love of Stampin’ Up! and if the sales from your workshop are over $750, you’ll have the opportunity to buy this bundle at half price! (saving you over $115)
  4. Buy the items separately during July & earn bonus $$$. Purchase the framelits during July for $172 and then use your $9 redemption in August to purchase the stamp set for $76.  You won’t save as much, but you will be able to spread the cost out!
  5. Join Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator for $169 and choose the Large Letters bundle as your kit content (saving you 18%) plus all your future purchases during your time as a demo will be at a minimum of 20% off retail!

As well as my savvy savings tips, I wanted to share with you how I (more or less) line up the framelits to use on a card front.

This is the card I made using the Serene Scenery DSP and Large Letters framelits.

And this is how I did it…

  1. Using your grid paper, line up the framelits onto a piece of vellum that is about the same size as your project.

2. Stick these in place with post-it notes or repositionable tape (you’ll need to be super careful about this – you can see my ‘R’ slipped as I ran it through the Big Shot).

3. Run through your Big Shot to make your template.

4. Lay your vellum over your cardstock & line the letters up again – into the gaps you created as part of your template -and roll through.  Depending on how sensitive your magnetic plate is, you may like to use post-its or tape again to hold the letters in place.

5. Stick your cardstock to your card front & add in any of the little pieces needed to complete the letters (ie, the middles of the R & O)


Voila!  Your card is finished!  If you cut a template for a card you think you’ll use again, keep it somewhere safe and then next time you want to make a card, you can start from step 4.

This type of template is also perfect for lining up cut letters.

Using templates are one of my trade secrets on how to get a better finish on your cards.  And now you’re in on the secret too!
