Brimbles Sticker Club Projects – September

It’s September! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

I love autumn so so much. And the colours and florals of this month’s sticker club are the perfect transition from summer to autumn. Like last month, I decided to do a variety of projects with my stickers, instead of one ‘big’ one.

 

First was a planner spread. So far I’ve used my sticker club stickers to decorate my personal size, but I decided it was time to change things up a bit and so decorated my A5. I don’t use any particular inserts in my A5 – just dot grid paper, meaning I can change the layout every single week – and this is how it looked with the September Garden stickers:

Now usually I would show you how it looked at the end of the week too – but due to the timing of this post it’s not all filled in yet! But if you’re interested there’ll be pictures of my spread on my instagram (which is linked at the top of this page under my logo). There is also a Plan With me video which you can watch here if you’d like.

 

My next project is also planner related. I used another of my dot grid pages to create a bullet journal-esque month at a glance.

My favourite part of this page is the page flags in the top right corner which I doodled on to make them into a banner.

It’s such a simple but effective little technique (for which I can claim no originality whatsoever, I’ve seen it many times on instagram!).

 

My last project was this bookmark:

It was really simple to make, I just took some white card and cut it to size. I found a quote about reading online and wrote it on the card in pencil. Then I put the stickers down, and then went over the pencil with a .38 black gel pen. For the top I simply used a hole punch for the hole and threaded some ribbon through it. I actually wanted to use black ribbon but turns out that I don’t have any! So I went with pink organza instead.

And yeah, ok, I admit it, I am not currently reading Jane Austen’s Emma (although I have many times!). But my current book is too big and boofy and wouldn’t lay flat for a picture! (Just in case you were wondering, it’s CS Lewis’ Cosmic Trilogy in one volume that wouldn’t behave for a photo).

Bookmark update: do not leave where your cat (or other curious creature) can find it, for the cat will find the ribbon tassel irresistible to chew on, pulling the bookmark out of your book and you will lose your place!

And there we go! I still have a few stickers left, some may end up on my planner pages towards the end of the week to fill in any gaps, and the rest will probably end up in my journal for light decoration. Thanks so much for reading and I hope you have a great September!

Brimbles, brimbles sticker club, scrashbook, sticker kit

Brimbles Sticker Club Projects – August

As a cat person, who also loves florals, this kit was pretty much perfect for me. So I wanted to create quite a few projects with it.
The first was a ‘scrashbook’ page, one of my (many!) forms of creative journaling that incorporates styles of scrapbooking, smashbooking, art, and creative journaling. I chose some photos of my cat, Conan, in the garden and journalled about how much he loves to be outside.

I used this paper from the Brimbles shop for my background, as well as a journaling card from a cat kit which is sadly no longer available.
I added colour to the page by dabbing some pink acrylic paint on with a foam brush, then I journalled on the back of the card and attached  it to the page with some paw print washi. Then it was sticker time! Here are some close ups:

 

I just LOVE layering stickers in little clusters!  Here is the finished layout, there is also a process video for this if you’d like to watch.

As for my other projects, I did a planner spread, of which you can watch the plan with me video here

Then I created a page marker for my planner. I did use my silhouette cutting machine to make the page marker, which I appreciate not everyone has, but you could easily make something like this on your computer and fussy cut it, or simply attach alpha stickers to the top of some card and laminate it.

 

And my last little project, because I only had one decorative floral sticker left, was to make a mini divider/tip in for my planner for the section where I keep track of my cat’s important details and information.

On this one I dabbed some black ink (just using my fingertips) onto on of the cat stickers so they’d contrast.

 And that’s it! And after all that I still have a handful of stickers left to use! If you’d like to read my original post on the Brimbles Blog you can find that here. If you like the look of this ‘Cats in Bloom’ sticker kit then you can still purchase online at the Brimbles Store, or get next month’s kit.
