Anyone can learn lettering. All it takes is a little patience and a lot of pencils. There's an alphabet in this book with your name on it something for every occasion--no exceptions. When you choose a lettering style and combine it with the right color or pattern, the results will revolutionize the way you look at your scrapbook--or your cards, posters party invitations, and gift tags. The options and outlets for creative lettering are endless. Lettering can be used to tie a scrapbook page theme together, convey a message, or invoke a feeling. Funky fonts add a bold energy to your project, while Fancy fonts bring a touch of femininity. So grab your pencil, and get ready to write. (From the first section, "Great Lettering Made Easy.")
