Are you ready for February's Tuesday's Tip?! It's everyone's favorite... STICKERS!!! Stickers are a simple to use and are a fun way to decorate any scrapbook page. Sticker collecting has been popular for decades (I still have several of my sticker books from my childhood) and scrapbook enthusiasts have found a great way to put those stickers to use. Long sticker strips can be used to border or divide a page, while smaller stickers can be used to fill in or accent a decorative theme. If you are unsure if a sticker is photo-safe, check the labeling. Recently, manufactured stickers will be labeled; older stickers may not be. When in doubt, do not use them near you photos.
Sticker letters are great to use when you are still trying to master hand-lettering on scrapbook pages, or for their ease, or to coordinate with a certain theme. There is a wide array of stickers available in segments or packages, which include hobbies, talents, florals, pets, strips, page accents, or just about everything else you can imagine! I'm really into the 3-D stickers with dimension and lots of glitter!
Check out the way I have used the "Take A Hike" stickers by Simple Stories on my double page spread below featuring my son's first Boy Scout camp out. Leave a comment showing me how you have used stickers in your layouts, you know I love hearing from you!
