Practical Scrappers Challenge

This week's challenge at Practical Scrappers asks you to pull out your stash of stickers and start STICKING! To be honest, at first I wasn't sure just what I wanted to do for this challenge as I don't use stickers much any more...not since I burned myself out on them in my early scrapping days well over a decade ago. I mean, I love what other people do with them, but for myself I find that I often get stuck trying to figure out what to do with stickers. :-)

Then... I remembered a little purchase I made some weeks back when Basic Grey came out with their new Green at Heart paper and embellishment line. I bought the 12 x 12 Collection pack that just so happened to come with... you guessed it, STICKERS! :-) At the time I also bought a pack of their new "Woolies" (felt stickers) to match... not really certain what I would ever end up doing with them. Then I pulled out three different collections of chipboard stickers and some of those clear domed stickers and by that time I thought... "Dang, I gotta lotta stickers for someone who thinks they don't use them much!".

Now don't get "stuck" without an entry for this week's challenge...hurry off to our Practical Scrappers blog, pull those stickers off their backing and get sticking! I can't wait to see what you design with your stickers!

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Green at Heart collection (Basic Grey)
Cardstock: Softstone and Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Distrees Ink in Tea Dye (Tim Holtz)
Embellishments: Ready Set Chip in Garden Variety and Material Girl (Cosmo Cricket), Title Stickers (EK Success), Chip Stickers in Granola (Basic Grey), Woolie Sticker (Basic Grey)
Tools: Computer, Printer, Fiskars Top Crest border punch
