Hello to all my crafting friends!
Today I’m sharing a very special project that was a real labour of love – a hand made alphabet sampler for my niece who is about to turn three.
This was such a fun project to make and yes it did involve a lot of my stamp sets. If you’d like to make one of your own, here’s how I created my alphabet sampler.
I began by looking at my stamp sets and making a list of words I could use for each letter.
Once I worked out the word for each letter I then designed the layout to suit the images used.
The final step before I began to stamp was to calculate the size of each square or rectangle. I used a shadow box frame I found at a charity shop and each square worked out to be approximately 7cm (2 3/4 inches) square.
Here’s a close up of the top half of the sampler.
And here is the bottom half.
Letters throughout were created with the Playful Alphabet dies (die cut onto foam adhesive sheets) and the words were stamped using the Make a Difference stamp set.
The complete list of stamps used is as follows:
- A – Silhouette Scenes
- B – Butterfly Gala
- C – Game On
- D – Hot Dog
- E – Beautiful World
- F – Jar of Flowers
- G & H -Baby Pull Toys
- I – Whiskey Business
- J- Country Home
- K – Kangaroo & Company
- L – Love of Leaves
- M – Snail Mail DSP
- N – Birds & Branches
- O – By the Dock
- P & Q – Timeless Tropical
- R – Nature’s Beauty
- S – Silhouette Scenes
- T – Campology
- U – Under My Umbrella
- V – Boho Indigo
- W – Under My Umbrella
- X – Perfectly Plaid
- Y – Celebrate Sunflowers
- Z – Zoo Globe
Here’s what it looks like inside the frame.
