CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – My Stickease

Welcome to the  December 2011 Close to My Heart Spotlight Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring My Stickease (some currently on sale on my website).  I just love these cardstock stickers by Close to My Heart.  You can use them as is for a great looking layout that you can create in no time or you can add to them as I have done below.

This blog hop is a circle so if you are just starting, continue until you make your way back here.  If you are coming from Carol’s Blog, you are on the right track!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Splendor Paper Packet, Splendor My Stickease, Liquid Glass, Stardust Glitter Glitz, and Brads Metal Assortment.

My Stickease are a quick way to create a fabulous layout.  To add some extra pizzazz to my layout I added antique brads to the flower centers, Glitter Glitz to border my title, and Liquid Glass to the “brads” in the lower right corner.   This layout can be filed this under the “30 minutes or less” category!  I used the 8 1/2 x 11 horizontal Dec. 2011 Page Map as inspiration.

Here is a list of some things you can do with My Stickease:
apply baby powder to the back and use 3D foam tape to add dimension
add sparkles (rhinestones or gems)
add gems/pearls
add flowers
add buttons
use Liquid Glass
use Liquid Applique
use Glitter Glitz or glitter
add brads
add eyelets
add ribbon

Clown Paper Piecing

I made this cute jack-in-the-box paper piecing for a swap.  I have girls and tend to use pink on most of my layouts so this never got used.  You can see below how I used it to make a card.  The paper piecing is very detailed so it was really all I needed and it’s a great kid’s card.
