Smile Let's chat about alphabet stamp sets...

I am just curious what your favorite alphabet stamp set is. I love the Polka Dot alphabet stamp set that CTMH has, but I just got a new set in the mail by SP&Company called "Big Build A Banner 1" and I really love the font used in it, too. I've recently gotten back into scrapbooking more and would love to hear your letter stamp suggestions, as I love using alphabet stamps on my pages. Thanks in advance!

I am partial to CTMH alpha sets and use them constantly. My current favorite is Trinity Alpha because it has three different sizes of the same font. Love the polka dot set, too!

Default Alphabets - my weakness

I have waaaaaaay too many!they range from tiny Hero Arts wood peg mounted ones to giant alpha stamps from the old Cornish Heritage Farms. I bought at least a dozen from Ma Vinci's Reliquary and can't believe I just ordered another set last night - the new photopolymer set from SU. I need to sell or give away a few. They are mostly UM.

I just got Stampin' Up's Morning Post alphabet. It's bigger, but you can still use it on cards as a focal point. I looooove the font.

Currently my favourite alphabet set is Alphadot:
Alphadot

There's a similar one which I also have called Graffiti:
Graffiti

...but I prefer Alphadot 'cause it's smaller and cuter.

Sophie, this is OT - but I'd never been to your gallery and just visited.

My gosh, you are so talented! Your watercolor drawings are just too adorable. If I had your talent, I would never buy a stamp again, I would just draw like you do.

Have you thought about doing your own line of stamps?

My favorite is Lovely Letters by Stampin' Up! It can be formal or cute. It's very versatile!

I just discovered Lawn Fawn. Their alphabet is clear and they are a square shape so you can match them toghether perfectly to make a phrase. Plus, they are coming out with matching die cuts.

Oh I will have to look. I have had alphabet stamps before that were on a square shape and the spacing was awkward so I cut them.
