Our These are My People papers and stickers are full of vibrant colors and patterns which I chose to use on this Simply Stickers card.  Many of you probably use stickers primary for scrapbooks, but did you know that they are also perfect for your card making projects.  Let me share with you a few ways that you can use stickers on your handmade cards. 

Cut Them Up to Fit Your Project

Don’t panic! It’s okay to cut apart your stickers.  Let’s take a look at what the These are My People sticker sheet looks like. 

Do you see that Green Border strip with the dots at the top?  That is the sticker I cut apart to create the top and bottom border of my card.  I simply placed the sticker sheet into my paper trimmer, and cut off the dots. 

Color Your Stickers to Make Them Pop

Sometimes, stickers need a little color.  On the sticker sheet, the two larger rose stickers had white leaves and the small rose was completely white. To bring more of the green color in from my border and heart, I used watercolors to shade the leaves. The small rose was shaded pink.  

Use the Phrases As Sentiments

Many of our sticker sheets come with fun phrases for your scrapbook pages. These phrases also make wonderful card sentiments.  You can chose to use them as is, or use them to create a sentence like I did on my Lilac Dragonfly Card.  On this card, I used the bold, typeset sentiment across the bottom of the card. I like how it grounds the images and puts the focus on the sentiment. 

I hope that today’s project inspired you to pull out a few of your sticker sheets and create a some cards for your home dwelling friends.

Remembering Those Who Sacrificed So Much For All of Us

Poppies are one of my favorite flowers and they bring tears to my eyes when I am reminded of what they represent to the many who lost family members to wars that were fought.  No matter if you’re from, the United States, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, we all owe a great deal to the men and women in the armed forces who have sacrificed so much to preserve freedom. On days like Anzac (Australia & New Zealand Army Corps) Day, we have the chance to express some of our appreciation and gratitude as we set this day aside to commemorate their actions.

This year, we wanted to celebrate Anzac Day with a two exclusive stamp sets. The Remembering Anzac Day special features the My Acrylix® Lest We Forget stamp set and the My Acrylix® Poppy Sentiments stamp set. These stamp sets are available at a 20% discount when you purchase the Remembering Anzac Day Stamp Bundle

Save 20% on the Stamp Bundle

Although the Lest We Forget stamp set is totally focused on Anzac Day, the Poppy Sentiments could be used for just about anything. I plan on purchasing these for myself, simply for that beautifully designed Poppy image. I can’t wait to create a few layers of flowers on my spring creations.

Unfortunately, the items in the Remembering Anzac Day special are only available through April 30.  Make sure to stop by my website and order yours before they are gone.
