Default Addicted To Alphabets...

Goodness, as if stamping in-and-of-itself weren't addicted enough...

I am fessing up. I am **TOTALLY** and **COMPULSIVELY** addicted to alphabets. No question about it. I can't even fit any more into my space designated for alphabets. I won't tell you how many I already own, but I just bought 3 more on MaVinci's Reliquary with some of DHs eBay $$$ (thong...Phltpt!! )

I originally started buying alphabets because they were cheaper than stickers. Hmmmm. Interesting concept. At least they're being used. And I did only have to invest in *each* alphabet once. I just *love* all of my different alphabets! Please tell me that I'm not the *only* one who has this *ALPHADDICTION*....

(Here is the link to MaVinci's...just in case you're interested...)

SNARK OF THE DAY: What is the difference between morality police and lemmings? If a herd of each were both jumping off of a bridge, I'd try to save the lemmings!

"Wow... Someone call the Morality Police."

I too am addicted to Alphabet stamps. I do a lot of scrapbooking so I use them a lot. Just when I think I have all that I need another cute one comes along that I have to have.

Thank-you for sharing that website. WOW! I have never seen so many different alphabet stamps.


I agree that you can never have too many alphabet stamps. (I'm not going to tell you how many I have either!)

Default Ma Vinci's Reliquary....

Okay, so I can't tell you how many, but I *will* tell which new ones I ordered from Ma Vinci's...

1) Durer (after Albrecht Durer...famous Artist...story of how alpha was "conceived" on the MaVinci site...)
2) Area 51 (okay...I'm *just* enough of a whack job to want that...anyway, it was too *BOMBIN'*)
3) Creature Feature (it was on sale--always a plus!--and was a good mid-size between my SU and MM...

If you haven't checked out MaVinci's yet, **GO NOW** -- it's 'da bomb!! ~ K

I too and an alphabet-aholic. I have all the SU. I've been looking for some giant sizes, but haven't really found any good fonts. Now I have! Thanks.

Wow, I really like these. My favority is the "Beautiful Ink".... plus I love the new set #3. So, I'm going to wait to order until that is available.

OK, I admit it. I'm guilty as charged. Mee too. But only in my head so far. I just won an auction for 4 sets of alphabets, but learned they are teeny tiny, which means I'll have to get some real sized ones. Awww shucks....

I've already spotted some I just need to have, but I can't really afford to get them all right now. But in time, in time......

I, too, love alphabets!!! I joined Club Stamp because they release nice alphabets each month. Very reasonably priced, too. I have six sets of Sizzlits and about 4 sets of Quickutz. As far as stamps, I have about 12 sets (maybe more) of stamp alphabets.
Now to go check out that website!

If you are looking for unmounted alphabets, you might want to check out this site:

http://www.purpleoniondesigns.com/

I have ordered from Michele - the service is great, fast, and SO friendly! My Purple Onion alphas are feeling a little neglected since I became a demo, but they are SO awesome!

Default Gotta Share Another Good One...

Another good alphabet site:

http://artbymoonlight.com/catalog.htm

Though I must tell you up front - the alphas are all small. *Excellent* if you do 6x6 and cards. Not so great if you're a 12x12'r like me.... ~ K

I agree, Purple Onion stamps are fabulous and, yes, the service can't be beat.

Before I started stamping I worked in magazine publishing and was totally addicted to fonts! I have thousands! Since getting into stamping, naturally I became hopelessly addicted to ALPHA's!!!!! Don't know how many sets I have, but I absolutely love every one of them. My long-standing favorite is Wordsworth Wild. So unique and beautiful. I don't use it alot b/c it takes a certain kind of project to carry it off, but sometimes I just stare at my sample cards w/ that alpha stamp!!!!

I am also addicted to alphabets sets! I do use them all the time in my scrapbooks though!

I am getting ready to pick my free sets that I earned with Sell-a-bration, and I am seriously considering getting the other double alphabets that I don't have yet!!

The only thing that is stopping this decision is that I don't really demo alphabet sets during my workshops - I just mention them.....

OMG I'm in trouble. Two new (to me) sites to spend money at. I really am glad this thread got started because I thought I was overdoing it a little with all the alphabet sets I've accumulated. Never even considered just one or two. I want them ALL!

LOL! the whole reason I got started stamping is because I loved the idea of not having to run out of letters with alphabet sets. now here I am many alphabets later! I'll tell you how many I think I have (too lazy to actually count!) I believe it's 16. but do I still want more? OFCORSE!

I'm sooooo adicted to alphabets, and ofcorse many other stamps too, all thanks to alphabets!

I'm glad I'm not alone.
