Book Club Thursday With Link Party

Book Club Thursday is back again. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have. It is now of my favorite books in my creative library. This book is a great way to learn new lettering styles and is great for either the beginner or the experienced letterer, that wants to add some new style to their lettering. 

Here are a few of my favorite projects from the book. I love the different ways to use letters to add some class to your art journals, cards, scrapbooks and gifts. 

This ornament is really a great way to make a gift with your lettering.
