Default Which alphabet set?

I have the crayon alphabet set and am wanting to get another one so 2 questions?

Which one do you use the most??


Isn't there a month where you buy the alphabet set and get the numbers set free??

Thanks

Jeni - Last spring SU! offered the special when you purchase the alphabet you get the numbers free. We don't have any idea in advance what special they will pull out of their hat (but it's always great!)

I personally use my Classic Alphabet the most. I have several others including the crayon one, the crazy one, etc. But I like that you can combine upper and lower with the Classic and that you can use it on cards as well as scrapbook pages. I think it's the best one!

Hope that helps!

Default alpha

I like the newer simple type alphabet. It is also a double alphabet and I like that it is a bit thinner, so it looks good on cards too! It coordinates well with several of the stamp sets also. I also have the classic alphabet and alphabet fun which I use sometimes.

I like the dbl ABCs, I have brushstroke & bold. Saves on space & money and you have both uppers and lowers. Granted they are a tad smaller than the singles, but I think you get more bang for your buck w/the dlbs. And like Susan said LY SU offered during May (scrapbook month), buy the ABCs get the #s free! That was a great deal.

I have the bold alphabet double set for my cards and use the Alphabet Fun set for scrapbooking because it doesn't matter if it is straight or crooked on the pages..

Another vote for Brushstroke. After that one, I use LC crayon

Love them both. Now I'm wishing for the new collage set.

I have many of the alphabet sets and love most all of them. My favorite lately is the Newsprint and Collage sets. I think of all of them my least favorite is Brushstroke, notice, I said least favorite - I still like it!

Brushstroke for me too. I love it because it is smaller and fits well on cards. I just ordered the numbers to go with it. I also have the Bold set but I don't use them very often.

I have many of the SU alphabet sets, and tend to use the Classic and Quirky sets the most.

If you plan on purchasing an alphabet set, this would be a great time. SU has created the "Relief from A to Z" program. From Jan. 1 through February 28., SU will donate $5 from the sale of every alphabet set in the Idea Book & Catalog and current mini catalog to Save the Children to help with the Children effected from the earthquakes and tsunami in Southeast Asia.

I like the double alphabets too but I just ordered Quriky so I hope I will like that as much. I think it's funny about Brushstroke. I have that one and really don't like it much other than it's small. All of my customers, as do most of you like it a lot. What am I missing here??

I just ordered alphadots, they look cute and like you can do a lot of fun things with them (I have 3 kids and was thinking about scrapbooking when I chose them)

I love Classic Alphabet....it's the perfect size for cards and crafts and scrappbooking too....although for title bars on scrappin' pages a larger font would be good.

I like the simple type alphabet, but I have 2 of the smaller double alphabets and I wanted to branch out, so I am going to order the Pure and simple upper alphabet. I thought long and hard about the collage alphabet in the mini, but I just don't think I love it enough. Maybe if it makes next years idea book I will get it but....
