Stampaganaza 2017 is here for just a couple more weeks! Alphabet stamp sets are so nice to have on hand as they insure that you will never “run out of” any letters as can happen with sticker alphabet sets. While an obvious use for alpha stamps is for titles on a layout, the CTMH blog shared several other great uses for them. I’d like to share it with you today.
“… ABC’s of working with alphabet stamps. Most of us have at least one font that is our go to….(If you’re looking for a new favorite, check out our new Storybook Alphabet—July Stamp of the Month!)
A is for Alignment
For our first trick, we will tell you to stamp your letters one at a time instead of spelling out entire words on a stamping block. A lot of people do this (and we do too, sometimes!) but we find it easier to pull off crisper and cleaner letters when they are stamped individually. If you’re afraid that your letters won’t line up straight, use a ruler and a pencil to lightly draw a line to act as a guide for where you will be stamping. As for spacing between the letters, just eyeball it! Artists are definitely not perfectionists!
B is for Background
Never underestimate the power of a strong backdrop! Alphabet stamps make great backgrounds and can send subtle messages through artwork. Align your letters using the tips we’ve already mentioned, but throw them in the back for a fun and easy way to personalize your crafts.
C is for Center (Sorry Cookie Monster, maybe next time)
Our final tip is about centering your words in your artwork without having to pull out a ruler. If you are trying to center a word on a piece of paper, like in our Hello tag above, start stamping from the middle letter of the word. We started with the first L in “HELLO” and then worked our way out from there, playfully staggering the letters slightly up and down.”
These are some nice tips & techniques to try with your alphabet stamps. To check out the entire Make It From Your Heart blog post & to see the recipes for the artwork shown above, Click here. I especially like the way they used the adorable Storybook Alphabet set on the counting sheep LO. Which is your favorite?
Happy Crafting! Beth
I had a great time at CTMH Convention, but I have been struggling to get back into the swing of things since I returned. I had intended to update my blog with the July specials, but I’m afraid that fell through the cracks. The information was in my newsletter, but not all of you subscribe to that.

I love the ease of our new post bound albums: no screwdriver required!
Our post bound albums are designed to perfectly showcase classic 12″ × 12″ scrapbook layouts side by side in Memory Protectors™ with lay-flat seams (full gutters). Its sturdy binding is ideal for securing thicker layouts.
I like the option of intermixing Picture My Life layouts with traditional layouts. I have one of our pocket pages next to a traditional layout. The D-ring style is ideal for projects that use pocket Memory Protectors™, like Picture My Life™ layouts.
