Alpha Stamp Love

Alpha Stamp Love

As I said earlier this week, there are more ways to use alphabet stamp sets than just as titles. Check out these three ideas:

The thing to remember about alphabet stamps, is that you will fall in love with lots of different fonts, but you do not NEED them all. Invest in a good sans serif and a serif font, and that will cover most of your stamping needs. As you find more stamp sets, ask yourself, does this fill a size or style gap? You basically will want one large set, one medium set, and one small set. More than that is unnecessary. If something is ridiculously inexpensive, you can add it to your stash, but make sure you can think of multiple uses for it. You want any stamps you buy to have a long and useful life.

Above all, have fun! Stamping is imperfect and messy and will make you feel amazingly, surprisingly creative.

(If you want to start your collection, check out these sets from Two Peas in a Bucket. Have fun shopping!)
