Hi Well I mostly do my letters with either Chipboard letters that you can buy, stickers (rarely) - and I have a cricut machine, which basically you buy cartridges for and they come with different fonts/shapes that it cuts for you on your paper. So yeah, I use my cricut for mostly all my titles!

I also use my cricut most of the time, but before I had one I use precut letters from Walmart. They come in a large pack of many colors and are in 2 font styles. I used them a lot more than stickers

I guess you could call a cricut a die-cutting machine. If you do an internet search, you can find tons of stuff about them.

Cricut personal cutting machines by Provo Craft let you express your creativity how and where you want.

I wouldn't buy one from this site since you can get them so much cheaper at places like Custom Crops or Oh My Crafts or eBay.

I personally use a sticker machine (Xyron) to put the titles on my pages. I got tired of dealing with the glue.

Welcome!

I am also pretty new to the scrapping world! When I started, I too wondered what all these great ladies used for their letters.

Then I learned about the magical world of Cricut. lol

I went out and very impulsively bought one.

I do not regret it one bit. I LOVE that thing!

As for adhesive, I use either glue strips like this:

Or, my new favorite is Martha Stewart glue. I couldn't find a picture of it, but it's in a pretty large tapered bottle with a super fine opening at the top! It's perfect for applying glue to tiny embellishments!
