Sticker Graffiti | Mid Week Mojo #36

Sticker Graffiti | Mid Week Mojo #36

I adore today’s steal, the Glitz rubon and sticker collections. I love being able to add some flair to my project without having to think too hard and today’s steal delivers that flair in a flash! I let the graffiti feeling of several of the collections be the drive behind my layout.

I thought it would be unique to combine lots of the different designs on the left hand side of my page to create my own graffiti wall.

I am also crazy about the little bits of bling that are on some of the Glitz stickers.

It’s a great use of multiple stickers and rubons, don’t you think?

In today’s steal there are also a bunch of stickers which are specific for titles. I love adding a title to my layout with absolutely zero effort.

How To’sday: Spinner Wheelie by Becci Maines

How To’sday: Spinner Wheelie by Becci Maines

Have you ever wanted a unique, interactive embellishment added to your scrapbook page? Becci Maines has the perfect solution with today’s how to. Here are some fantastic step-by-step instructions so that you can create a spinner wheelie.

Here are the supplies that you will need:

  • Circle cutter/die-cut machine/Cricut or good old scissors
  • Pencil
  • Pen
  • Ruler
  • 1 brad
  • Ink pad (optional)

1. Shapes to cut:

  • 1 top circle (5”)
  • 1 bottom circle (5”)
  • 1 scalloped circle (4.66”)

2. From the top circle, cut out a triangle (mine is 1.48”x1.81” to be exact). Save the triangle piece that you cut out.
3. Cut out half circle from the side of the top circle piece. You can also use a circle punch for this if you do not
have a machine.
4. With the triangle scrap that you have, trace it around in a circle as shown, using a pencil. Do not trace all the
way to the outer edge.

5. Fill in the spaces with cute sayings.

6. Mark the center of the circle. I recommend measuring each piece separately and marking with a pencil. I
have marked with a pen so that you can see the marking.

8. Layer all three punched pieces like an Oreo cookie.

9. Place large brad through the holes. Tip: if you do not want to see the scalloped edges through the window,
you can make the window smaller.

10. This is optional, you can also ink all the edges, including the window and side notch.

11. Finally, glue around the edges all the way around. Be careful not to catch the scalloped circle in the glue. Lay
flat to dry and allow to dry before spinning.

Thank you so much Becci for sharing your amazing idea with us.  I can totally imagine using this on a layout of my little guy as his mood changes within the minute, so it would be fun to have an interactive embellishment to display all of his moods.  I think this would also be great fun for the front of a card.
