Hello everyone, Jil here with a quick post about all the lovely stickers in the Picket Fence kits and the Classified: Memory Keeping Kit. This is how I used those stickers on a post about a treat made by a local bakery every spring.

Polenta cake! It’s so good. And here’s the story of the role played by stickers on this spread: First, I used two kinds of alphabet stickers to create my title. Above it I placed a flower sticker to add some pink and reinforce my theme of celebrating spring, and I taped it down with a torn border sticker. The birds are also reminiscent of spring, and so I surrounded my photos with three of the sweet bird stickers. I cut a sticker from the sticker kit (memory keeping edition) in two pieces, and so the blue and green leaves and foliage appear to the far right and on the top of my photo on the other page below my journaling, preventing trapped space and carrying the motif across the spread. I loved using round stickers of different sizes and of course enamel dots, too.

This close-up shows the border sticker I placed across the bottom–its doily and the words “simply sweet” make it perfect for this page.

This photo shows how I made a collage of stickers for the top left of my spread, using the green ink pad and a stamp (both from the kit) with an apt phrase to introduce my journaling. Each of these wonderful stickers from the kits can be used alone, of course, for a simple accent, but I loved combining them here for a little springtime exuberance! Have fun with all the pretty stickers in Picket Fence!
