So there used to be a Borders in the local mall. And it’s life there was short… but while it was there, I enjoyed it’s beans and stationary. And by beans, I mean brew… and by stationary, I mean PAPERCHASE! Man, I love paperchase stuff. Pencils… notebooks, photo albums, lunch boxes, .. and stickers. And when border closed, I went a while without cool stickers… until I started looking around online. And just recently I got the crazy idea to actually search for paperchase products online… duh. (btw, paperchase is having a sale right now… www.paperchase.co.uk) link up there too. So anyway, me and Roo scored all these juicy sticks right from the source! Look at those tapes and buses! C’mon!!
I used to be anti-sticker. True story. Well, not anti-sticker in general, but anti-sticker in scrapbooking. I was like… NOOOOO… you can’t just slap a sticker down?! That’s cheesy cheating! You must stamp it out or draw it or burn that image onto your page!
But then again, stickers have come a long way since I started scrapbooking. In the beginning it was leave stickers for fall… and it was flip flops for summer and that was about it folks.
I started getting back into the sticker habit when I started teaching piano lessons. They were my “bribe” for a while… (didn’t even work half the time!) .. but occasionally upsetting would happen when I withheld them for a bad performance. (I’m so mean!)
But now I’m def. addicted for my own reasons… I really can’t say what those reasons are… but some folks out there are making some pretty sweet sticks and I am eating them up and on the hunt!
Having said that, I do have to admit that scrapbooking is still not the main event for my stickers though. I use them mostly in my planner… or just to decorate notes for friends and family… and also for my students.
So in conclusion. Give stickers a chance! They might really get stuck on you… like for reals…
oh, and here’s a video me and Roo made to express further our enjoyment of the aboved referenced topic.
We started a new series on Youtube called Ladies with Lenses… It’s just a chance for us to be silly… and share crafty stuff…
So thanks for being here and have a FANTASTIC week! Weeeeee!
