Sticker letters


Cardstock letters


Now you can make an endless supply of letter block stickers in ANY color you want with this handy little collection (coordinating die sold separately)! Cut the die from our white adhesive sheets and then stamp it with your selected font from this set.  You can then tear the individual letter blocks away from the center strip along the perforation if you don't mind the "rugged" look, or snip them off with paper snips for a cleaner look. Since they are on a "base strip" you can store the leftovers for future use. There are extras of several of the more popular letters built right into the strips so you would most likely only need one "set" to create your phrase or word!

  • Type Strips will be available for purchase on November 15th.

  • A coordinating die will be available for sale separately, retailing for $6.  Type Bits Strip die measures 5-1/2" x 3/4".


Now you can make an endless supply of number block stickers too!  This little $5 set features the same fonts used in the original Type Strips set, only with numbers!  Add dates to layouts, customize ages on birthday cards and more!

Here is a video explaining just how the new Type Strips work!  Just wait until you see all the possibilities!


Can you see all the possibilities!  Let's take a closer look at my projects shown in the video!

Birthday card

Here is a quick and easy card I made using the new Type Strips collection.  I stamped the stars from Simple Stars and Happy New Year in a variety of colors around this stylish sentiment.  A few rhinestones were added too.

Name closeup

I then created my own letter stickers using Type Strips and our white adhesive sheets.  They are stamped in Orange Zest.  By simply tearing the blocks from the center strip I was able to add them to my card and personalize this birthday card.  

November Layout

Now for my layout documenting little Ethan's Kindergarten pow wow back in 2012!  He's grown so much since then and it was so fun to look back on those memories as I created this!


The journal cards included in this months pad are just gorgeous and perfect for November layouts!  I used this green polka dot card to create my title.  I cut "November" from three layers of Canyon Clay cardstock and adhered them together for dimension.

November side

I created more Type Strips letter stickers using our adhesive cork sheets.  I stamped the letters in Dark Chocolate and then die-cut the strips.  I was able to tear the cork letters right from the strip and adhere them onto my journal card.  I added some additional details with black pen.


This little turkey that Heather designed is just the sweetest!  I stamped the year underneath the turkey using Vintage Cream ink.

Turkey side

I cut just the body from a second turkey card and adhered it with foam tape on top of this card to add dimension.

Love you

I created these two labels to accent the group photo where Ethan and his friends were singingsome pow wow songs.

Love you closeup

The top label was created with Building Blocks and the bottom label with a small word from Monthly Moments: November.

Wreath tag

I used the new Monthly Moments: Journal Card 6 die to create this tag insert.  I cut the tag from another one of the papers from the new journal card pad.  The reinforcer was cut from Dark Chocolate and tied with baker's twine.

Wreath closeup

I die-cut the Rustic Wreath die from Ripe Avocado cardstock and cut the legth of it to make it a smaler wreath.  I stamped berries around it using Monthly Moments: November and Terracotta Tile ink.  Small dots of Glossy Accents help give thems ome shine.  The "6" is die-cut from old bookprint and then the word "age" is added with more of the cork stickers I made earlier.

Gobble gobble side

This frame from Simply Framed was stamped in Canyon Clay and added to another one of the gorgeous journal cards.  The "gobble gobble" is from Monthly Moments: November.

Be grateful

This is one of my favorite photos of Ethan so it definitely needed to take center stage!  I added part of a journal card next to it and embellished it with a few more stamps from Monthly Moments: November.  The journaling was added in black pen.

Be grateful side

Now that you have seen a few of my creations, here are some of the amazing things that the team has created!


Ashley says, "I like to think of November as the month of gratitude, so created a couple of pages sharing things I am grateful for as they occur throughout the month. There are so many great words and images to incorporate into your pages this month to document all the things you're thankful for. I'm grateful for the simple things in life, so I hope you click over to check them out."

Danielle says, "The November Monthly Moments papers, stamps and dies are perfect for scrapping all of your Thanksgiving photos of family, food and thankfulness! Last year was my first Thanksgiving with my side of the family in many years, so we made sure to get group photos, which I've scrapped in this mini album…can't wait to give this to my mom when she comes again this year! I think she'll love having them all in one special place."

Erin says, "I love the rich fall colors that Heather choose to work with during the month of November. They are so inspiring and will help you create cozy, warm projects of your own."

Heather says, "With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, I always am reminded to take time to give thanks for all of the things that I have in my life. The Monthly Moments: November collection was put together with all things family and the blessings in life in mind. I am sharing a layout that celebrates my family and then I put together a little mini book that actually does not include photos. Sometimes just taking time to write down your memories and blessings in life is all you need to create a keepsake that you will love to share and look back on in the years to come."
