Stickers and Chipboard Embellishments

How many sticker sheets do you have stashed away somewhere in your craft space?  How many of the sheets have one or two pieces missing that have been used on projects while the remainder of the stickers are  on the sheet indefinitely?  I have several drawers with them.

What project are you working on now?  Are you making a mini album, creating a fabulous scrapbook layout, working on a special greeting card?  Gather your sticker sheets, take a look at them and see if any of the words or images can be used in your creation, then watch this video on how I altered a couple of stickers to take them from “hum drum” to “fabulous” 🙂

I don’t know about you but, sometimes I need an embellishment that is more stiff and thick than just a piece of card stock.  Plus there is the other problem of not being able to find a chipboard image or piece that works with the beautiful item you are creating.

Do you have a rubber stamp with an image that is just right for your project?  Do you wish you could find a chipboard piece just like the stamped image?  Well it is here!  Only you have to do a little work to make it happen 🙂

Take a second look at the stickers and rubber stamps you have in your stash.  Go shopping in your bins, drawers, cupboards, and boxes.  Your wallet will thank you 🙂
