I think of all the HS chipboard alpha's I've tried (and that is quite a few!), these are my favorite. The font looks particularly good on a page with curves or circles. And the color is wonderful on natural browns, pinks, blues, and most greens. I have altered them with paint, embossing powder, distressing, and they always look great. The only problem is that the adhesive which comes on the item is useless, absolutely useless. Plan to use another adhesive product to adhere these to the page and I believe you will be satisfied.
