Figuring out how to use up an entire sheet of letter stickers was a fun challenge. Since I usually begin creating a page based on a story idea or theme, starting with a title was an interesting variation in my approach.
It felt like there were a lot of letters and numbers to work with when I started off, and by the time I was done I felt like I was grasping at straws.
- Wash Me
- Cook & Clean
- Mr. Fix It
- Silly Boys
- Jump 4 Joy
- 8 (for a quick one photo per age photo album scrapbook)
- 12 (ditto)
- Pizza Night
- Queen (I’ll probably add “Bee” or “of the Crop” in smaller letters once I decide where to take the page.)
- Go For Broke (Zeroes=o)
- Wolverine (using lots of repurposed numbers as letters)
- JV & V Jock (something re: my husband’s sports team history)
- 55 (As in I can’t drive…)
- FF (Fantastic Four!)
- Chex (using an 8 as an E)
That’s a lot of useful titles. 25 to be exact. However, the colors and patterns of the alphas are challenging for me right now. They don’t really mesh with my current style. So, to make creating pages with these alphas easier, and make sure I have enough paper for all those pages, I put together a paper kit with 15 sheets of patterned paper and 15 solids/cardstock.
Most of these papers are older. They’re from Studio Calico, American Crafts, Around the Block, Basic Grey, Little Yellow Bicycle, DCWV, CK, Paper Pizazz, and KI Memories.
Various shades of blues and purples should work well with the alpha set, and you can never go wrong with kraft. Orange will also make an interesting contrast. (It’s my new favorite color. I love adding a bit of orange everywhere!)
How did you do with your set of alpha stickers? Don’t give up! It can be done!
Later this week I’ll show you some of the pages I’ve made, and announce the winner. Don’t forget to drop by!
