Neat & Tangled-Journaling Alphas

releaseweek-01Hi there! I’m back with Neat & Tangled highlighting the fun new Journaling Alpha dies as well as the Big Top Birthday stamp set.Neat & Tangled-Journaling AlphasThese fun new products will be available on Friday, May 20th at 8am EST.

I love the font of these Journaling Alpha dies. They are perfect for customizing a name or sentiment on your cards. I die cut four of each letter and stacked them up using spray adhesive.
Neat & Tangled-Journaling AlphasFirst I stamped the images and masked them with full sticky post-it notes. Then I blended in some distress inks and added flicks of water. I colored the images with Copics, adhered the letters and stamped the sentiment to finish it off. I’m in love with these adorable circus images. How about that donut balloon? Love.
