Stash Busting - Use Up Those 12x12 Sticker Embellishment Sheets

Today I am sharing a challenge I set for myself ... to use up an entire sheet of 12 x 12 embellishment stickers! I have a TON of them sitting in my stash. I purchased them thinking I'd use them all them time but I end up forgetting they're there. Well, they're not getting any younger and neither is this day so let me show you what I did.

Oh, and in case I didn't think this challenge was big enough, I decided to video tape a lot of the process. Enjoy!



What did you think? Not bad eh? I've only got a handful left from that whole sheet. Feels SO good to finally put all those cute stickers to use!!

Here are the layouts. In the video there were 5 but I'm only sharing 4 with you today. The last one you will have to see on my blog on Saturday as it was for another Design Team. Shh! Don't tell anyone you got a peek at it!!
After I shut off the camera I added the paper strips to the top of this page as it was looking a bit barren. Then I added the blue photo corner sticker to the lower right of the photo and the cream label sticker up at the top right. As well as more brads. Also felt good to dig into my stash of brads!

No changes were made to this one. I'm not 100% happy with it but it's good enough to go into my albums like this. One day I may fiddle with it but for today it is fine!

I added my journaling to this one as well as several brads. Oh, and lesson learned ... wait for the mist to dry before you start moving it around too much! Oops!

I ended up using that pink 'summer memories' sticker after all and I think it works here. With the addition of another Teresa Collins brad, this layout is complete too!

Now it's your turn. Got any embellishment sticker sheets languishing in your stash? Pull them out and start matching photos to them. You don't have to be crazy like me and do it all in one sitting, but start the process at least. While you still like the stickers!!

Thanks for coming by the blog today. For more information on these layouts and me, please visit my website at http://alisondaydesigns.com. I'll be posting details on these layouts tomorrow. Good night!
