As I sat at my desk trying to piece together my double LO ...yes I feel creative ...I found I needed lettering …lots …and I turned again to my favourite ..Making Memories alpha books.
Sadly my supply has greatly depleted over the years and I am not sure if I can find them … or anything in their place. I am thinking of raiding my DD supply but I'm not sure if she has any left now.
Many rub-ons do not survive the test of long storage times …they adhere themselves to the backing sheet …they float off before they are positioned …or they refuse to let go at all. I remember one make that you had to warm before they would work at all …many crafters used to sit on them.lol...but these did last and work as well as they did when I first bought them.I know the books were not cheap but they lasted and there are plenty of most letters in each book.
I like stickers …mini alphas …chipboard … and even stamps but I am gutted that I gathered a large collection of a particular makes letter stamps …that cost me mega bucks … only to find that after a year of not being used …many of the letters ripped when being removed for use.
What lettering format is your favourite? And does anyone know if those books …or similar …are still made …or are rub-ons just out of fashion!.
Take Care xx
