Product Focus - Stickers & Tin Pins

As part of my Design Team kit, I got some gorgeous Stickers & Tin Pins from the October Afternoon Farmhouse range ... I absolutely LOVE the Tin Pins - they just add that SPECIAL touch to any layout.

Stickers are so versatile - there are so many different ways you can use,  I love to back them onto clear transparency and that way I can add them anywhere on the layout.   I have done this on the butterfly sticker and then using some Foam Tape I have popped it up to give it dimension and by bending the wings of the butterfly it looks like the butterfly has it's wings out


As you can see, I have backed the round sticker and the Blue sticker onto black cardstock and then wrapped some twine around it, and finally adding a TIN PIN .  Suddenly they don't look like stickers, but embellishments to the page....and by adding some foam tape underneath some of them, it gives it alot of dimension to the page.



On the above picture, I created two banners from the Pattern Paper and then the centre one is actually a sticker which I again backed onto black cardstock and used some Foam tape to give it dimension.

On this one, you can see I have made my own banners, and then in between to add that something special I added a TIN PIN.

Lastly of course there are many stickers which are used as journalling spots.


Here is the whole layout....so as you can you stickers don't need to be flat, but by giving it a little dimension it can totally change the look of stickers.


 I hope you that I have shown you some other ways to use Stickers, and by adding some Tin Pins, just make the layout look totally different, 

TFL and Happy Scrapping

  1. I love how everything is matted in black. It's not something I would've done with lovely soft colours, but it looks really great and everything stands out so well! Great layout.

  2. This is a great layout! I asked my friends to challenge me yesterday. They were to post a layout that they had seen on Pintrest and I would chose one to scraplift. A gal posted this one of yours, and I was instantly inspired! I posted my take of it on Facebook and now 2 of my friends want to lift it too! I of course linked it back to your page, as I believe to give credit where it is due. I just wanted you to know that I love your work and thank you for inspiring so many!
