Three Things + 1 : Word Stickers

Wordstickers_2


Classic favorites today: word stickers.


I am always on the lookout for basic, life-focused word stickers that can be used on any number of layouts/projects. I tend to reach for the ones with universal themes most: life, travel, home, adventure, family, memories, etc. They are great for mixing together to create new phases or sentences or for intermingling between handwritten or computer journaling (see sample below).


Narratives 12x12 Cardstock Stickers


Travel Advisory 97% Complete Stickers


Making Memories Word Fetti


7gypsies 97% Complete Stickers


Here's a layout example using word stickers from Life Artist:

    Hi Ali, Good Morning... I've become a big fan of 7gypsies 97%complete stickers. I love using them randomly on my layouts. Your blog is such a site of inspiration. I know you are a big fan of Jenni Bowlin. I would love for you to check out my blog. I create a mini with her February kit "Tangerine Dream" that is perfect for those mini papers she has.

    I love the 7 gypsies stickers. I find myself buying these and using them over and over. I recently took inspiration from an article last year about using leftovers and used the making memories winter ones for a lo about snow sledding with my kids. I didn't use any patterned paper either. I just finished my dh father's day album using the fatherhood 7 gypsie stickers inspired by an album you did a while ago too. Thanks so much!

    I love these -- I need to remember to keep the word stickers OUT where I can see them as I'm creating a page - when they are tucked away....well they'll just collect dust.

    Ali,
    I have some of the 7 gypsies word stickers, but I am not sure what to do with the "round tab stickers". (top left --bottom row of 4 in your photo)
    Could you help?

    I love word stickers, they are all so vastly different yet equally fun to play with:) I really like the layout you posted, I feel inspired to play with my word stickers today and see if I can use them to complete some journaling. Thanks for another great idea!

    Hi Ali,
    How do you store your words and word stickers?? My letters are stored in several large divided plastic containers... but words...??? I'm using them in collages and mixed media work and I need a way to organize them or... they won't get used. Any tips??
    Thanks for your wonderful posts and your Life Artist book. I started out a scrapbooker and am now exploring a variety of areas of art. I owe a lot of my inspiration to you and all that you share and your encouragement.
    Thank you,
    Joni

    Thanks for the inspiration today! I love word stickers, but always forget to use them in my journaling. My goal today has become to create a layout using some of the thousands of 7Gypsies word stickers that I have... Thanks! :)

    Hi Ali,
    I agree - I LOVE word stickers. I have the complete set of 7gypsies97%complete stickers, and use them all the time! - I got them a while ago on QVC for a really good price. Those who like them should check and see if they're still available.

    Ditto ditto ditto.
    Word stickers (esp those 7 gypsies ones) are probably my favorite scrapbooking item to use. :)

    I will keep reading to see when you leave for CKU-CHGO. I am a TA there so if you want any different CHGO food let us know on the blog and we'll bring some. When my cousin lived east coast she couldn't get Fanny May Chocolate or Maurice Lenell cookies so those were good treats to get. SUE B>

    Ali,
    This isn't related to your post, but I thought of you while reading Wired magazine's March 08 issue. There is an article concerning autism and the new research surrounding it. I thought you might be interested and wanted to tell you. I hope this post isn't too weird from a total stranger.
    You inspire me and I read your articles and posts all the time. Thanks for all you do.
    Deanna
