Alpha Dots!

Today is Day 4 of the MFTeasers for December and I am excited to share a new set designed by Kim, the MFT Lady herself! The set is called "Alpha Dots" and I know it will become one of my "go to" sets! The alphabet letters are the perfect size for both cards and scrapbooking, and can be punched out so easily with a circle punch.

Be sure to check out Kim's blog at 11:00 am EST to see a list of designers who will have more ideas for using this new set.

I do enjoy scrapbooking! And nothing frustrates me more than buying set of letters and then not enough of one letter to complete my page. That is why I love this new set! You can stamp a letter as many times as you want and in any color you want! I just love the flexibility! The circle fit perfect in my 3/4" circle punch, and I also think it would look great with a border around it when you use a larger punch.

Every Christmas we try to send out a card with a photo and I like to add a extra copy of the card into each one of the girls' scrapbooks. This is our photo card from last Christmas. I stamped out the word "Christmas", used a 3/4" circle punch for each letter, and added the green circle with a 1" punch. I added lace, the ribbon tied in the corner, and used glue dots to apply my letters.

The stamped Candy Cane Heart is from the set Santa Baby and is colored with copics and I wrote in the year. I finished the page off with some stitching and rhinestones in the corner.


Here is a closer look at the lettering.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join us on Wednesday night in the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststamper for the release party.
