It's A Blog Hop...AND a Pretty Paper Party!

It's time for the Master Forger's Blog Hop-and here is the challenge we were given this month:
BLOG HOP CHALLENGE: Alter some stickers and use them in an unexpected way on your project. Let's see if we can even recognize them as stickers any more!

I have several pages to share, some using stickers and some not, since I won an entrance to Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party, I have been combining as many challenges as possible, using up lots of pretty papers from my paper scraps and Counterfeit kit, and more importantly, getting lots of scrapping done!!

The first day's prompt was to mix and match strips of patterned paper (which is easy if you just happen ;-) to have a piece of border strips paper in your kit). I also used one of Shimelle's sketches for Day 1.

My Layout,"Just Breathe":
 My "Sticker in Disguise":

I mounted it on a chipboard flower and added some bling to the center-love making it dimensional!

Supplies I used for this layout:
A piece of GCD Studios pink cardstock from a previous CKCB kit, Echo Park Life Is Good Border Strips, a salmon pink handmade ribbon flower, Echo Park Life Is Good Element and Alpha stickers, a pink rhinestone from my kit, and a journaling spot from my stash.

The prompt for Day 2 was to use a patterned background-again, I followed a sketch from Shimelle:

I am not so sure I love the way this page turned out, but I ripped it apart twice and changed it around, so I finally decided I was done, and it was time to move on to the next page. It kind of feels off balance, so I may add a little something to the right side, but for now, I am walking away! The way I disguised the stickers here: I layered them on cardstock and with other stickers.
Supplies Used:
Making Memories Spellbound "Glitter Crow", American Crafts Halloween Stickers, Basic Grey Eerie Pops Stickers, Making Memories Spook Alley rub-on house, a stamp from my Halloween kit, and some orange bling from my stash

I skipped Day 3's Prompt, since it was all about making a kit up from your stash, and I kind of already do that ;-)

Day 4's prompt was to use dots and/or stripes-and possibly mix in another pattern such as a floral.

Here's my page:
I used a sketch loosely for this one.Supplies used:
American Crafts Play "Paper Dolls", The Girls Paperie Paper Girl "Die Cut Wallpaper", a piece of pink scalloped felt ribbon, pink Primas and bling, a handmade pink flower from my stash, and Echo Park Element and Alpha stickers, and an American Crafts Remarks journaling spot.

One of the prompts from Day 5 was to make it messy or distressed, and I used Shimelle's sketch for the day.

My Layout:

And a closer look at my "disguised stickers" here:

On the star sticker, I just added bling to the center, and for the Thickers-I "disguised" a P, and turned it into an R with a little creative cutting.
Supplies I used for this page:
patterned papers from the DCWV All About Boys stack, pieces of red and light blue cardstock from my scrap stash, American Crafts Thickers (from 3 different sets-the black glitter chipboard letters were in my Halloween kit this month, the other 2 were in past kits), Sapphire Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels that I dripped/flicked on the page, red rhinestones from my stash, and the red stars are from Jenni Bowlin.

Stop by tomorrow-I still have more pages to share before I do a wrap up for October!


  1. You've done a lot with stickers here Margie - looks like the Pretty Paper Party was/is a lot of fun and you've made some gorgeous pages - loving the Supergirl one especially!

  2. Glad you're enjoying the class - you've made some great pages and used stickers in lots of great ways! I was frustrated with my take on the patterned background challenge too

  3. Fantastic layouts! I like the way you've transformed your stickers. Your Halloween LO is my favorite. The background paper and the house image give is a nice spooky feel.

  4. I love your first layout. The picture looks like it was taken just to go with your papers. You are getting a lot done.

  5. You've done a wonderful job here! Great work with your stickers, lots of fantastic ideas, especially making them into other letters!

  6. Ww, you've been busy, and everything looks great! On your first page, what is the paper with the little houses/buildings?

  7. What fun layouts!!!! Great disguised stickers, so simple yet so effective! I'm so jealous of how many layouts you have finished! xoxo

  8. Really great layouts but I have to admit my favourite is the pink one for prompt 4! So pretty and feminine and great use of die cut paper. Your use of stickers is great. simple little things that make such a difference and I'm happy to see that there's someone else who creates new letters out of left over ones! I would never have noticed it!

  9. You were so productive this month! I love the idea of layering the stickers for a different look! Fabulous pages!
