Day Four - Alphabet Stamp Sets for Titles

To celebrate International Scrapbooking Month I'm going to have a scrapbooking week. I started on Monday posting a post every day for 7 days to show you different ways I've found to use Stamps and Ink, along with patterned papers, punches and of course photos on my scrapbook layouts.

I have a Clear Mounted 'Lots of Bots' stamp set to give away to one person (No Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators please) who leaves a comment on all seven posts this week. I will be doing the draw on Tuesday 25th May.

Instead of using alphabet stickers for the titles on my journalling and always having the wrong letters left over when I want to use them I use my 'Big Deal' Alphabet Stamp Set.

Here is a layout where I have used it stamped straight on the cardstock.

I used the edge of the layout to line up the letters for this title but if I want something more precise I use my 'Stamp A Ma Jig' - Stamp Positioner for exact placement.

Another way to get exact placement is to stamp the letters separately, cut them out and then position them on your layout as I've done here.  (Note the Animal Stories Stamp set I used in this layout is unavailable)

If all that Stamping and Cutting seems like too much work for you that's when you go for a die cut alphabet like the "Stampin' Up!® Timeless Type Junior Alphabet" Sizzlits Dies that are currently available in the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue.

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post and the other six this week to enter yourself in the draw.

Yep, I've had to get creative with left over letters before. And I have never stamped letters and cut them out!

Great layouts.

I think this is a much better idea than sticker letters - much more economical.
