Type Hype


Cath found a really fun vintage typewriter for the latest Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World.  I was inspired by the colourful keys and the way they seem to float above the typewriter so I popped my letters up on thick foam tape.  I added PTI's Book Print impression plate in the background for some extra texture. 

The thank you is for all of you who left such sweet and thoughtful comments regarding the loss of Jem.  Luis and I were really touched by all your well wishes.  I still keep expecting Jem to come bounding around the corner with his goofy smile.  I think it's going to be a while before that feeling fades.

Supplies Used
Cardstock: (Off-white) Pacon, (Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Block Alphabet) PTI

Impression Plate:  (Book Print) PTI
Punches:  (1" circle) EK Success, (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida

Love, love, love, love, love! Way to break it down to the essential elements of the inspiration - you really nailed this one! (I like to think that eventually, I might have come up with something like this, but probably not lol!)

Such a unique take on the TT and soooo totally clever! I had a 'now why didn't I think of that moment' for sure!!

This looks so uber cool! And that feeling will take a long time to fade - that's not much consolation, but he was a big part of your lives and still will be for a while. How's Atti? Big hugs to all of you :)
