Embroidered Alpha Freebie!


I really hope you enjoy this embroidered alpha because it was a pain in the patootie to make, LOL! I'm sure there was an easier way but I didn't do it that way :). I won't go into the gory details but as you can see, each letter has four layers (one in each color) and each of those layers had to have the embroidery action (from Atomic Cupcake) run on it...and it's a somewhat slow action. I think at one point my document had over 100 layers! I was able to catch up on some of my TV shows while doing it so I guess I shouldn't whine too much, huh? Well, off the subject, I got my hair cut back to shoulder length today for the summer so now my pic is outdated again! Here's your alpha...Enjoy! (BTW, you really don't have to leave a comment for this because you have all left such wonderful comments on this kit so far that I won't be offended if you just grab it and go!

This item is no longer free but may be purchased in MY STORE

I had not been on much the past few days. My granddaughter had surgery, so I was at the hospital and spent time with her. I caught up with the last two freebies. Thank you so much! Love your works.

I'm going to say thanks anyway! You do such beautiful work. I wish I could come to your house and sit by your side and learn from you. I'm wanting so bad to learn how to design things. : )

Of course I'm going to thank you for this wonderful alpha. So unique and colorful. Isn't it wonderful to accomplish something like this even tho it was a lot of work? I would think so!

Thanks for the alpha I usually dont collect alpha's since Im a font loving girl lol, but this one is just too cute to pass up. Your 4 yo did an awesome job with taking your photo. Keep encouraging him.

The Alpha Looks amAAzin!
I so love it that you get "carried away" with your "little" kits. They turn out to be so nice and have everything you could possibly want or need. I haven't downloaded any of the playful plaid yet. (My IC & 4shared don't seem to be getting along right now. in fact, I can't dl anything over 6mb unless it is restartable. AAAAgh!) but I think I will be able to borrow a friends computer next week and I'll come get everything then. I really can't wait! this kit looks just as awesome as the felty pet kit.

sb said...

thank you for the alphas... very pretty!

Karen said...

No grab & go today: the alpha looks great! I'm sure you put in alot of time to make them. I like the fact that they're a different "font design" than the more boring Times New Roman.

The alpha is wonderful. I know the feeling...running a complicated action, and having time to take a nap while it does a whole alpha!

I'm not about to "grab and go" when you put so much time and effort into this alpha. The least I can do is take a few seconds to say thank you so much!

Nightshadow said...

I can't believe your 4YO took that pic. I think you may have a budding genius on your hands.

Thanks for the beautiful alphas.
