Got extra stickers? Try this amazing scrapbook technique!

What can you do with all those mismatched stickers? Paint over them!!!

If you have some stickers that don’t match or you don’t like the color you can easily paint right over them using Dylusions paints and Ranger’s mini ink blending tool! The great part about this is you scrap your stash while making those stickers go further.

Step 1. Put your title down and use the mini ink blending tool to color over the stickers.

Step 2. Your stickers will now work as “double duty”! Pull off the stickers and use the new title on another page!

Extra Stickers on Scrapbook Page

I had fun using the bright bold Dylusions colors on these scrapbook pages. The colors are vibrant and fun! I painted these scrapbook pages using a variety of stencils and Dylusions paints which are sold at Scrap Diva Retreats. Check them out the next time you scrapbook with us.

Santa Cruz will always have a special place in my heart. No matter where I live it will always be my home town!

How to Use Lots of Pictures on Your Next Scrapbook Page

One way to incorporate lots of pictures on your next scrapbook layout is to use them in your title. This is  a great way to scrapbook a lot of leftover pictures, landscape pictures or blurry pictures that didn’t turn out that great.

One Hit Wonder Scrapbook Page – On the Boardwalk

One of my favorite parts about the Shop Hop is all the awesome 6X6 scrapbook layouts you get to collect. I used some of the materials from the make-n-takes to create larger 12X12 layouts. It was fun being creative to see how many different looks I could create with the extra scraps.
