Hello everyone! I was invited by my friend Christine to join her and a few other ladies in a fun monthly YouTube Hop. Each month we plan to focus on a specific item in our stash. The idea is to use up as much of that item as we can and hopefully make a dent in our stash. This month our focus is on Stickers.
We crafters and scrapbookers tend to collect a lot of things, we love to buy what is new and trending hence leaving the “old” behind. After years of crafting, you end up with this huge stash. This challenge is a great opportunity to use up some of those items.
I decided to use the Simple Stories You are Here Collection. I have already used a ton of this collection. However I had a lot of the stickers that I had not used. I pulled out the 12×12 Sticker sheet and the 12×12 Alpha Sticker sheet. My goal was to use as much as I could. This collection has been perfect for scrapbooking my Hawaii trip from 2016. Today I am scrapping a photo from that trip. It is a photo of me and my two boys in front of Waimea Canyon in Kauai, Hawaii. Kauai was one of the stops our cruise ship made. I have to say it was one of my favorites. We rented a car and drove out to Waimea Canyon. It was absolutely beautiful. We had a lovely day. I only wish we could have spent a few more hours there exploring.
I used a sketch I found on Pinterest by Kristine Davidson as a starting off point.
I used several patterned papers, all from the You are Here Collection, I also used the 3×4 & 4×6 cut apart sheets as layers and to punch out the hexagon shapes. I added some brown cardstock behind all of the hexagons.
I embellished using only stickers. I was so happy to have used up the majority of the stickers on the 12×12 sticker sheet. I added dimension to some of the stickers by adding fun foam to the back.
Even my tittle is from the sticker sheet. I added fun foam behind that as well. I added some enamel dots in coordinating colors as a finishing touch.
I absolutely love how this turned out! I was so happy with the amount of stickers I was able to use up. I can’t wait for next month’s challenge.
