This month was a bit extra exciting for me, not only did I receive a beautiful kit but I also had the pleasure of designing the stamps. I often play around with my writing in my minidori and a quick and simple way to add a bit of extra to your letters is to make part of your letter blocked. From there you can add color or make little patterns or just leave it as is. Since I started planning creatively a few years back I have learnt to embrace my own handlettering. It might be wonky at times and it is definitely imperfect but it is always personal and fun.
The first thing I did this week was to stamp out a bunch of letters on sticker paper that I fussy cut out, if you are on a budget this is a perfect way to have almost indefinite access to alpha stickers.
If you look closely you can see that in some of the clusters I have mixed different sized nibs on my writing, this is a simple way to add a bit of interest, it also helps highlight what’s most important to you.
Adding a bit of color is always a fun way to brighten a page. If you want something more subtle you can add a really light color and just color in the outlines of the flake sticker, I promise it make a huge difference and just makes things look a bit more put together.
As you can see I really like to play with layers, this is something that is made easy with stickers instead of stamps, I like to start my washi strip underneath a big sticker. The washi helps pulling random things together and is both cute and acts as a background.
How do you like to use your alpha stamps? I would love it if you tagged me, KaffekanAnna at Instagram, if you use the March stamps!
