Hey OA fans ... Nicole here to share a super simple idea with you to tackle your stash! One of my favorite things that comes with every new OA release is all of the label/shape stickers. They're always basic enough to use with lots of different projects and a great value for your spending dollar...they go a LONG way! Usually a few of the designs on a sheet stand out to me, and I end up coveting the rest but not using them. Here's an easy way to get them off of the sticker sheet and on to your project: layer and cluster them together!
This page was kept simple because I chose to use a 4x6 photo on it, and didn't want it to look 'cluttered'. You can't go wrong with a grid/graph background, so I just added a simple border of patterned paper to the left edge. I'd been holding on to the label/shape stickers from the 9to5 collection mostly because I'm a sucker for office themed products, and they were 'too fun' to use. WHAT KIND OF THINKING IS THAT?! So I dove in...
I selected the yellow starburst sticker first, and layered it over a piece of number paper from the Make it Merry collection (that's right...I dug into my Christmas stash lol). I knew I wanted to use the 'original' label sticker from the 9to5 sheet and layered a red arrow on top of it to point to the globe I altered myself. From there, I grabbed different labels and just layered them together to create the interest along the right edge of the photo.
Easy peasy, yes? Clustered together like that, the labels make a bigger impact than they may have by themselves...don't hesitate to try, and USE those stickers you've been hanging on to!!
