Can It Really Be Done? Simple Journaling In Your Planner!¬† Hello beautiful people!¬† I wanted to talk about journaling and planning, combining the two mediums in a way that makes it simple and stress free-...
Hello, Friends If you want to add emphasis or titles to your memory keeping layouts, look no further than the alphas stickers in the New Chapter Collection. Alpha stickers are a staple for their versatility and customization. With so many alpha sets to choose from, you have the freedom to create whatever words and phrases you need with alphas stickers. You can also use alpha stickers to alter pocket card quotes, in between handwritten journaling, or in conjunction with phrase stickers. We have some fantastic layouts today from our design team, featuring the alpha stickers. First, Casie shares 6x8 spread documenting her "Word of the Year" with letter stickers. ‚ÄúI started with the 6x8 white card stock from the New Chapter Modern Memory Keeping Kit and the black paint from the New Chapter Classified: Memory Keeping Kit. I had some fun with black paint by making dots all over the white paper for a neutral background. Then I gathered all black and white alpha stickers from my various kits including the New Chapter Classified: Memory Keeping Kit, New Chapter Planner Add-on Kit, New Chapter Bible Journaling Kit, New Chapter Memory Keeping Sticker Kit, and the puffy alphas. I used those to repeat my One Little Word - DWELL. I typed my journaling and cut it into strips below the alpha stickers as well. The result is a crafty start to 2021.‚Äù We love Casie‚Äôs monochromatic design for this layout using the alphas. Keeping to one color allows the variety of alpha styles to really shine! If you are planning to repeat an element in your layout, consider keeping one thing consistent, like color, as Casie demonstrates. Odessa‚Äôs bright and cheerful spread is sure to give you some great ideas for titles with alpha stickers. ‚ÄúI was so excited by all the alphas in the New Chapter Collection that I had to use a few of them on this page. I put together this Traveler‚Äôs Notebook page using a full-page photo and one of the white 6x8 cardstock sheets in the New Chapter Modern Memory Keeping kit cut down to TN size. I kept it simple on the photo; with the sprinkles, there is already a lot going on. I added a tab to the side and a chipboard circle on the photo. I had way too much fun on the other side of this layout. I started by putting together a simple title using alpha stickers and then got a little carried away, in the best way possible! I used alpha stickers from the New Chapter Daisy Add-On Sticker Kit, the Memory Keeping Sticker Kit, and the Traveler‚Äôs Notebook Memory Keeping Kit. I then added lots of washi bits, enamel dots, and other stickers to make it pop! The mix of alphas is so much fun and is a great way to add a playful title to a page.‚Äù¬†The colorful and varied alphas in Odessa‚Äôs title mimic the sprinkles in the photo perfectly. And we love how Odessa adapted the white cardstock from the Modern Memory Keeping kit to fit her memory keeping needs. The white background is a nice contrast to the bold and colorful photo. And finally, we have a Simple Dori spread from Evy
Alpha stickers are definitely in my top 3 favorite products. They are easy to use and "foolproof". I use them to create titles but also for captions and it's super fun to mix them to get different thicknesses and to give movement.
In this case, I used them for the title of my project on the travelers-notebook. Using puffy alphas for the Brooks lettering and the smaller alphabet for running shoes you decide which part to give more visibility and importance to.
If you read the various stickers separately, the result is¬†1-Brooks Shoes 2-new running shoes.¬†Funny, isn't it?" Hee, hee. We love Evy's use of Alpha's in this spread!How do you use the alpha stickers in your memory keeping or planners?
