Default Alpha Match Game - DSD 2019

We've got a winner!
With 20 correct answers, congratulations, shunnstergirl (aka Alyna), you have won a $20 coupon to the shoppe. Keep an eye for a PM from me shortly!

===========================

Hi, ladies, and happy happy DSD to you all!

Today, I am here to host the Alpha Match Game.
For this game, you will need to find the following list of alphas and tell me which kit each alpha is from. It is basically the same as the scavenger hunt that's hosted by our SugarBabe Krista, except these are all alphas.



Hints:
1. Most of them are from solo kits from MOST of the current SSD designers, with a very few exceptions.
2. I've checked that all of the kits are in the shoppe, no retired goodies.
3. They are all in their real sizes.

To participate:
1. PM me here at SSD with the list of your answers.
2. Please put DSD Alpha Match as the subject of your PM.
3. Once you have sent me a PM, please reply here as well, letting me know that your answers are sent so that I won't miss any.

Deadline & prizes:
1. You will have until 11:59pm EST on Monday night, October 7th, to PM me your answers.
2. There will be a $20 coupon up for grab. The person with the most correct answers will be the winner. If there is a tie, I will use the random generator to decide the winner.

Good luck and have fun, ladies!

It is very hard because in previews we only see the letters ABC and not the whole alpha
and a lot of them are real plain looking.

Are they inside full kit previews? or are they Alphas to buy on their own?

I'm not 100% on this so hopefully Sherly sees this and can chime in but I'm going to say they're within kits, maybe separate packs as well. I can see an alpha in there that's part of a kit but not sold separately.

Most of these alphas are inside full kits, actually. Our designers rarely sell alpha on their own, I think.

Can we get some hints? I don't know if I'm the only one struggling here. lol

Is every designer listed at least once? or anyway specific way to look for the alpha? I'm going through each designer's page, one by one... taking forever!
I thought maybe there was an alphabetical order but it's not working out.

I figured I'll play this game after the DSD festivities or if I finish my blackout early. I want to play. I'm just not 100% strong with alphas to know the answers quickly. I know this one will take me a long time especially since they aren't on first pages of each designer's store or in the alpha section.

I'm not sure about the others, how they are doing but this one I'm leaving for last. It's a challenge. I know I can do it. I just want to get my card done for the $100 entry first!

Makes total sense! Good luck on the Blackout! I decided to not play for Blackout this time so I don't stress myself.

I also just want to say THANK YOU to the designers who always put the alpha in the same spot on the preview. It really makes a difference when looking for something!

Man! My eyes hurt so bad! lol

Yeah, I don't think all of these alphas are visible on the previews. I found some of them on the CT layouts linked to the preview but not on the preview itself.

Well, I gave it my best shot. I found quite a few of them, and then I got stuck and guessed for the rest. Oh, well.

I've put some hints on the top there. There are a couple of designers missing there, but most of them are listed at least once.
It is a very tough challenge, that is why this challenge will have ONE winner that would get $20 coupon.
In a way it's more on the designers' names/designing names alphabetical order than the kits names. Also, it's worth a shot even if you only find several correct ones.
