Three Things: Numbers


In honor of tax day here in the USA, here are three cool products featuring numbers.

Around the Block Lucky Number Big Metal Brads : I picked these up last weekend - perfect classic typeface in a size that feels just right for the cover of a minibook. Planning to use these on a project today.

Making Memories Magnetic Date Stamp Kit : As I was cleaning out the drawers in my office recently I came across this set and remembered how much I loved it. One of the big things I like about it is the year dates go back to 1980. It's a great set for going back and telling stories from the past.

7gypsies Numbers ATC Rub Ons : Another instant classic set of numbers. And again, my emphasis when choosing products for my projects tends towards versatility. I love that I can pick these up and use them on lots of different things rather than just one layout.

    Love the numbers, Ali! Especially the Around the Block that they are a brad! Would make them super easy to use. Where did you find them? Haven't seen them around yet. Look forward to seeing the project you have planned with them for later! Please share! Was also curious about whether you are working on a new book about mini-books? Thought I heard mention of that once before but not sure where! I'd love to see that!

    I love number items as well-they can be used on any project, and I love versatility as you mentioned. I'm a sucker for different number"fonts" just as I am for letters!

    Thanks for all these awesome ideas Ali! I also wanted to thank you for the "Alis's font" that I found on CK magazine and that I used many times on my lay-outs!

    Hey Ali!
    I am curious what inspires you about the Ghandi quote! Isn't God divine? How can we find him in people? Does that mean you don't have to look for Him in different ways either?
    Just some stuff to think about!
    Take care!

    Tax day-urghhhh! My accountant did not finish our paper work until the 15th! Stress! Fortunately we are getting some money back due to humongous medical bills! Yea-Paper money for paper! Have you ever listened to the Diva Cast, Podcast? They are in Itunes. They just did a show on Autism. Great & funny ladies.
    Ali-keep up the great inspiration. I love to read your site.

    I absolutely love the colors of your acylic album! .....And the way you used it the same color palate througout that book was really cool! My favorite idea on your home page is how you stitched the ribbon to create a border on your top layout; very creative!! Thank you for inspiring all of us to think outside the box!
