I joked one time that I want to do a funny video with me singing a song to the tune of "I'm Bringin' Sexy Back" but I would change the lyrics to "I'm Bringin' Stickers Back."
Can't you hear it?
I'm bringin' stickers back.
Them other scrappers don't know how to act.
They're thinkin' stickers be all full of crap.
I really hate it that they get a bad rap.
JT ain't got nothin' on me! (I loves me some JT.)
Seriously though...in this week's ScrapGals podcast, we discussed theme scrapping so it inspired me to break out some stickers!!
Heaven knows I have plenty of holiday photos to scrap!
I chose a set based on the quality of the photos.
With Easter being the obvious upcoming holiday - I pulled out my very small stash....
I tried to picture how I would place them but they just seemed so plain.
So I decided to go with the very glittery Doodlebug sheet. I have always loved Doodlebug stickers.
I am on a grid/linear layout kick so I thought, what the heck, just go with what I know. I cut one photo down to 4x4 to get this...
Then, strangely enough, I cut a piece of thicker white cardstock and adhered it for my title.
I used the sticker sheet to create my title and added a couple butterflies on pop dots for interest plus a tiny strip of polka dot.
I used one more of the stickers added to a pennant tag for fun in the top corner...
I think subtle is best when using stickers. A few go a long way.
Here's a close up of the journaling. I couldn't think of what to say since this was from 2007 and I had this long area for journaling.
Thankfully, Caroline came in the room and told me her memories of it so that helped me write this much...
I found that I had scrapped about four Easter pages but none past 2006. I have multiple photos from each year.
Photos of the basket, her Easter dress, the egg hunt and sometimes a play at church.
So for each year I haven't scrapped, there's like four sets of pictures per year? Whew! Not a good realization since this is 2014!
That's like 30+ layouts I need to do. I will just have to do them when the mood strikes me, I guess.
At least this is a step in the right direction!!
