While trying to think what stash item I needed to use up – that I hadn’t already shared with you – I realized that I still hadn’t created a visual reminder for my One Little Word. My word this year is ACTION so being “behind” is not a good start!
And then it came to me!
Create a Word Jumble!
This is a fun way to use up several different alphabet stickers (you know, all those half used packets where the letters are losing their stick and falling to the bottom of the packet?) AND create a fun OLW Layout.
Before I share my layout I thought I’d show you the process I went through first.
Step One: Write out words associated with your OLW. These can be synonyms for your word or words and phrases you’d like to invite into your life in 2015. Treat this like a brain dump. Write everything down!

Note: the crossed out words are ones I had planned to or actually did put into my jumble.
Step Two: Roughly map out your jumble.

Step Three: Gather your letter stickers.

 The older the better! If their stickiness was lacking I had my bottle of Glossy Accents close at hand.
Step Four: Lay out your words as per your rough sketch on a craft mat or other coated surface that the letters won’t stick to permanently.

Step Five: Choose your papers and transfer your rough design onto them.
OLW - Word Jumble for Practical Scrappers Scrapping Our Stash blog Hop Jan 30 2015
With a couple of doilies added behind my word for emphasis and some journaling to remind me of my intentions for 2015, I now have a great visual touchstone for my Word AND I used up lots of letters that were languishing in my stash.
Thanks for stopping by – now you’re off to Wendi’s blog. Have fun!

  1. This may be a duplicate entry. If so, please delete. Charter went down while I was trying to post and I’m not sure if it went through.
    I love the way you used the words as the puzzle. It’s a great reminder of things we need to keep in our lives and it uses up a lot of letters in our stash that are going unloved.
    thanks for the idea. I’ll be using this one.

  2. Wonderful! I love that you created this as support for your OLW and that you used your letter stash in the process! Great idea and fantastic project! Thanks so much for sharing!
