Alpha Negatives turn Positive

Thanks for the positive feedback about my scrapbook page from yesterday! It's on its way now to the lady who is making the album up.

Do you have chipboard letters? Have you used them and are you left with the surrounding chipboard shapes, like these in the picture? Can't bear to throw them away? Why not turn the negatives into positives?

I'm in a swap right now where we are doing just that. Last night I completed three of the six letters I owe the swap. Here's some 'before' and 'after' examples (I'm going to turn the 'befores' into 'afters' sometime today, I hope. These needed to be in the mail last week!) There are endless possibilities with these little projects and they don't take long to do. Get your imagination going and let me know if you do complete some alpha negatives!

No baby news yet. We're still all awaiting.

If you have negatives taht are the same size, you can spell out a word & make a minibook using the letters as the page. Leaving a blank page between each letter, concertina style for pictures.
E.G. Love & add photos of a child/loved one etc between.
I made one many moons ago before I had a digital camera & the photos were so rubbish I binned them.
Sadly my latest set are not the same size!!!!!
