Challenge 38!

Good morning paper crafters!

If you're like me you have TONS of alpha stickers! Even with my cricut and font cartridges, and my computer, and my many alphabet stamp sets -- I still can not resist a pack of cute set of letter stickers!

Tiny, chunky, glittery, uppercase, loopy, chipboard, I love them ALL.

So why not mix it up this week?

~The Challenge~

~The Prize~

These clear stamps are HUGE! These would look great on a scrapbook page. Our prize this week is sponsored by Close To My Heart demonstrator Dana Swadling. Check back Friday for more information on her business!

Jan said, ""Sweet Sixteen" for a boy? Absolutely not! Opted for a play on words and used a smaller font size for the word "sweet" on my son's sixteenth birthday layout. "

Mindy said, "I had a little too much fun with the clustering, oh well! I think it's fabulous!"

Patti said, "For my mixed alphas challenge, I used Basic Grey letter stickers, Cosmo Cricket tiny letter stickers and Technique Tuesday letter stamps. This is my oldest son, Thomas, who moved 3.5 hours away on June first, to start a new life. We are very proud of him!!"

Tessa said, "I love bold, clean fonts mixed with cursive ones. This sticker sentiment, by SRM Stickers, was perfect for a thank you card that a dear friend is well-deserving of after helping me out this past week."

Melissa said, "Someone very special to me loves her some Tinkerbell, so I made this card for her, as her birthday is coming up soon."

the journey finding this waterfall was ridiculous...but creating this page was easy..The Paper Variety is so inspiring that I had no problem coming up with a layout for this challenge!!! <3 ...can't wait to see your creations!!!

I just had to use 2 of my FAVORITE alphas on this fun card: Echo Park and Thickers! This is a special birthday card for a special 8 year old girl ;)

We can't wait to see what projects you come up with this week! Remember to include at least 2 different types of alphas/fonts for a chance to win our stamp prize from Dana Swadling.
