Scrabble Wall Art By Claireabellemakes

People love Scrabble! This month I’ve been busy making lots of Scrabble Wall Art for all sorts of occasions including weddings, new arrivals, families and thank you gifts. I thought I would share some of them and a little behind the scenes with you today.

I start with the wooden scrabble tile stash. If G is around he distracts me by making silly (and sometimes rude words) to make me laugh. He is also great at helping me work out which letter combinations work and sketching them in a notebook.

I then choose the fabric backgrounds with each customer, usually via Etsy convo or email. My fabric stash is mainly pastel tones and I prefer to use patterned backgrounds as it really makes the Scrabble tiles pop.

I love learning why customers have chosen certain words. This one was for a wedding gift and included place names for their first date, engagement and wedding.

Being a stationery geek, I LOVE packaging my products, especially if I know they will be gifted to someone special.

Friday’s post will be details of a Flash Sale I am organising with a few talented UK Etsy designers. So if you have had your eye on something from the store, keep your eyes peeled for my coupon code and some ready made frames!

Scrabble Wall Art Frames are available in my Etsy store in small or large. I’d love to know what you’d spell out!

Toodles!

Scrabble Word Art Commission

This week I’ve been working on a super lovely commission for a wedding, so I thought I’d share it with you all.

Kate (who runs Daphne Rosa) wanted a special gift for her friends wedding. The groom actually proposed on a Scrabble board! So, I worked with Kate on some ideas and this is the final gift!

The Scrabble word art spells out three locations that matter to the happy couple; where they had their first date, where they were engaged and where they are to be married. The background of the frame is love heart fabric.

Super pleased with how it turned out. What do you think? I wonder if I should start doing small frames for the Etsy store? It was a lot of fun working with so many Scrabble tiles and deciding on a layout.

If you are interested in a custom order, please contact me via social media or email using the buttons at the top of my sidebar. I love a good challenge!

Be sure to check out Kate’s gorgeous work too, especially if you are planning a wedding or Spring/Summer party!

Toodles!
