5 Tips with Alphas / Felicity Wilson

Hello lovely people! Felicity here today with a super cute mini album using the May kit!

Tip 4:  Mix it up. This is something I don’t do enough. I tend to stick to the same alpha, but look at how fun it looks with the thickers and the stickers from the shimelle book in the project life kit. Its also a great way to add a longer sentiment or title.


Tip 5: Dont be afraid to chop up the thickers. If there is a longer title or just part of it you like, dont be scared to chop it up and make it fit your project. Like what I did with dreaming of... which mind you, are the exclusive puffy stickers in the kit.

Oh I love the script on ‘dreaming of


Hope this inspires you today, to be a little more creative with alphas.

Before you go, I’ll leave you a bonus page – a Project Life spread and process video.
