Yay for Letter Boards!!!! Let's Count Down!

Hello everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who are celebrating today!

Last week I received this awesome box from Pebbles (American Crafts) filled with the new DCWV letter board & several extras! The board came just in time .... I love counting down to the holidays & other celebrations as I love the air of anticipation and the happy feeling surrounding these occasions. The new DCWV letter boards are so perfect for this!

I created a "count down to Thanksgiving" for my Pebbles blog post very quickly. Here's what I did:

I used a few die-cuts and a sticker from the Heart of Home collection to embellish the board a bit more. As the board has a smooth surface it’s easy to stick stickers or a light adhesive tape to it and remove it again later on (although I did make the stickers a little bit less adhesive by sticking them to my jeans a few times first).

The board measures 16″ x 20″ and comes with 188 one inch characters. There are many coordinating products available to pair with the board like hand-lettered words, icons and other additional letter packs. The black 1″ letters were included in the box with the letter board and the pink 2″ letters are an example of a set of extra letters:

I loved playing with my board and my kids did too!

I just love the different looks of the letters and words!

And just because I wanted to play with my board some more I decided to change the text from “count down to Thanksgiving” into “count down to Christmas”. In no time at all I was done:

Aren’t the Christmas icons fun?! This time I added a few die-cuts from the new Pebbles’ Merry Merry collection!

This board is totally addictive! Every time I find myself near it I want to play with it some more! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it! And just for fun I’m adding a quick close-up of the Christmas layout you in the photo next to the letter board:

I created a Christmas tree in the layout using the paper weaving technique and added a photo from last year with my hubby and the kids. I used lots of  bits and pieces, all from Pebbles’ Merry Merry collection. Such a fun collection!!

This is it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and wishing you a happy holiday season!
