Product Focus Week 2: Alpha Stickers


Welcome to this week's "Product Focus." In these weekly blog posts, I'll share a scrapbooking product I'm particularly drawn to, and then share some ways I've used the product in a project. I'll point out tips and tricks for using the product, share some of my favorite products from that product line, and then I'll open it up for any questions you might have. I'd also love to hear your reviews or uses for the product I focus on each week. This is a chance for you to pull out products you already own and play with them or for you to discover new product you might not have yet tried.


This week I'm focusing on Alpha Stickers. If you're looking for a quick and easy way to create a title or journaling, then Alpha Stickers are the way to go. Alpha Stickers come in a variety of sizes, styles, textures, and colors. Really the possibilities and choices are endless and each style gives your layout a completely new look.


Here are a few of my favorite Alpha Sticker products (click the photos for links to the products):





Below you will find a gallery of projects that use Alpha Stickers. Hopefully these will give you some new ideas for using Alpha Stickers on your projects.

Idea #3: Combine Letter Stickers with Die Cut Titles





I'd like to ask here how you are using Alpha Stickers. Can you combine shapes and sizes? Did you create a shaped journaling path? Share your completed projects through links in the comments section or by sharing your ideas with the other readers. If you have a question about Alpha Stickers, please post it in the comments section below. I will answer some of them in my next "Product Focus" post, and I may just feature one of your projects in an upcoming post.

  2. i usually stamp my alphabet directly on my project or cut them out and pop em up. i like the stickers and thickers but find they are pricey.

    these are fantastic projects! :)

  3. I use thickers most of the time. I like being able to mist, chalk or color them so they are the color I want for each project.
    Have you chosen your winner for the Season of Giving blog hop yet? I keep checking but may have missed it. Thanks!

  4. I find myself diecutting my titles more and more, but thickers are my alphabet sticker of choice for sure. I have bought hoards of them so I should probably challenge myself to start using them more again. You're layouts are wonderful as always! :)

    I use tons of Thickers but have a problem with them sticking to the page. What's your favorite method to make sure your letter stickers stay where you want?

  8. Here is a layout I did showing a long title. Just scroll down to 3rd pic for close-up. I love doing long titles, and subtitles. Alphas make them fun and super easy.
