It’s time for me to brighten up your day with a colourful layout, with stacked stickers of all different hues layered up…
Nice and vibrant, isn’t it? This photo was taken in spring a couple of years ago, and I must say I’m looking forward to the weather warming up so that we can start adventuring again.
As you can probably tell I had a lot of fun layering up my stickers on this page. I just counted, and there’s about 50 stickers on here, plus enamel dots and chipboard stickers too!
To start with I knew I wanted to use this colourful piece of Webster’s Pages paper for my photo:
So I pulled a bunch of stickers from my stash which matched the colours / theme of the page:
They are all cut out from their backing sheets so that I could play around with the placement of them on the page before sticking them down. The only ones which I couldn’t cut out were the glittery circles on the right, as they are snug together.
I piled up the stickers, shuffling and changing until I was happy with the look of the page – I couldn’t try out the glittery gold circles so I just kept them to one side to remind me to use them in a minute:
Then I stuck them all down! This did take a little while, as I had to carefully shuffle down the top layers, stick down a sticker on the bottom layer, then shuffle them back up to check they were in the right place. I kept referring back to my earlier photo to check their placement too, so it’s a good idea to take a digital photo if you can!
I remembered to include some circles as I was sticking the other stickers down, just dotting a few here and there, and using one big one for the title (which I changed from ‘hello girl’ to ‘hello friends’):
Next I went through my stash again to find some chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, and enamel dots, which all helped to add a bit of dimension to an otherwise flat page. I also stamped a couple of butterflies to the left of the photo, as the page was looking a bit heavy on the right without them:
Having the title circled by a sticker stops it getting lost on the busy page:
There’s just a couple of lines of journaling at the bottom of the layout, because the stickers had lots of phrases on to add to the story:
I think the page does these 2 smiley girls justice, what do you think?!
Do you have a surplus of stickers in your stash? Try layering them up like this to use lots up at once!

I hope you’re having a great weekend,
