It’s All About… Me

Candice Windham

This project is what I call, Using Up My Stash. I’ve had this cute book box for some time, but it was in a plastic bin (the clear kind so you can see what you have). Of course, it was packed so full and stacked on the top shelf of my storage area that I never saw this box until one day when I needed something else and didn’t want to drive to Memphis to get it. The Who’d a thunk it? title for this post is because I discovered something really cool about the Duetica Lettering Arts Studio. Now, you know how I love Duetica. I have posted a lot of projects using their fabulous lettering system, all (or most) with pretty detailed instructions for making even more changes once the type is set. I usually use either Photoshop or Illustrator, select the area I want to edit, and just drop in my color of choice. AND I had noticed the the outline option in the Duetica software. It just never occurred to me to actually use it, cut out the letters and color them to match my project. I’ve been digital for so long that the old tried and true ways have almost disappeared from my vocabulary.

I’ve been wanting to make a chronicle about my life. Most of you who know me well know that I am a firm believer of preserving memories. If you don’t preserve them, who will, right? When I found this box, I knew exactly what I wanted to do
