My approach was pretty boring in a way - I started with the letter C because it's the first letter in my name...
From past experience I knew I needed to start from the inside and work out. This isn't always necessary but it often makes things much easier.
Well I hope that has given you some ideas if you ever find yourself stumped with lettering! Also note that I some of these punches are the old "whale" design, any you buy from Stampin' Up! now will not look like this!
