Organize your Stuff: Week 11 (round 4): Stickers Part 1 & WOYWW

Here is our WOYWW work desk. Getting ready for another Iraq layout.


PA Me has reminded us that we also need to cue up some family pictures at Costco so that Creative Me does not fall to far behind with all of this end of year overscheduling…er… fun for our three kids!

Speaking of...here is last night's Middle School Band Concert photo op with the ever present Pacific North West Rainbow (That is the real reason that Seattle is called the Emerald City...not so much for the super green trees, but the plethora of rainbows...almost daily this time of year...which OCD Me reminds us means that you must have rain.  Thank you, Mr. Wizard.).

Anythow...to see the rest of the desks, click on over to the Stamping Ground!

Also, here is my Design Team Card for Tuesday Trio (Sketch #70) Summertime. We had our first real Summer day here in the Pacific Northwest this weekend. We had honest to goodness sunshine, and it almost hit 80! Both Illusive Middle Child and Girl Friday had BBQs and the Oldest Child had a fabulous, rain free… and therefore sunburn-ful Boy Scout Camporee weekend.




Question of the week: Do you still use stickers (other than alphabets)? Or rub-ons? Or have they been replaced by stamps (week 13)?

Our Sticker Albums
We have found that over time, the Inner Hoarder has amassed a large well…horde… of stickers. However, Creative Me does not use them very often. Unless we have just printed photos and gone to the Scrap Store specifically to pick out stuff, our stickers just hang around until Girl Friday eventually is gifted them. While this is a boon for Girl Friday, it is not economical. The POW is proud to report that since last round we have not purchased any non-alpha stickers that did not go immediately onto a layout or project! (That IS progress!) Now if only the same could be said of buttons… LOL!

I have a box full of stickers too and rarely use them and have told myself that I cant buy anymore until I have used the ones I already have (doesnt work) so I have been giving mine to my children to reduce the pile a bit - funny how I am addicted to them but then cant seem to use them! Love the cards you have made and the layout you are working on. Thanks for sharing - Sunshine Girl (no. 31)

Debby said...

Cute cute card. I still love all my stickers, chipboard, rub on, and designer alaphabets. I know my purchases have declined wanting to use what I have.

Angie said...

I love your 'Pearfect' cards ...as for stickers etc ...I tend to use a mix but I love my alpha rub ons and the tiny sticker letters best of all ...and some of the less glitterey thickers.Between the three of us that craft in this house...we have loads of sticker and chip board letters and will not be buying any for a while. I and DD have a huge collection of alphabet stamps but sadly many have deteriorated over the few years we have had them.

Vanessa said...

Nice card! I still use stickers, mostly chipboard ones.

What a beautiful "pear" of a card. #100

Great card and I love all those little plastic wallets at the back of your desk, do they hold stamps or something? I have a few rubons and just a couple of alphabet stickers so not too many to worry about.

Super, super cute cards! I love product with pears :) I actually have several patterned papers from Basic Grey and American Crafts with pears.

And I do still use stickers as accent pieces. I usually mount them on paper, fussy cut them and pop dot them on pages :) They are great for cards, too!

I was hunting for a sticker I knew I had, last week, but never did find it, not a great user of them but they can be very useful sometimes!Love the cards!
happy WOYWW ((Lyn))

I love the pear card, I was looking for that embossing set today with no luck. I use sticker every now and then, it depends on the project.

Tracy said...

Your card is so yummy :)

I have my stickers in an album in page protectors. I hardly ever take it down as it is up to high

jodpea said...

I love that pear card, I was hoping u'd tell us what u'd used but then u went on mention buying things u never use so maybe its best u don't tell me!

Stickers said...

Stickers are just extraordinary! I tried stickers with different themes however, I like the one that portrays fruits. The way you have showcased, I can get the real essence of it. Thanks for the post!

Steph said...

Very cute card! I hadn't used stickers in awhile but pulled some out recently for a scrapbook for my niece and nephew.

JoZart said...
