November Brimbles Sticker Club: ‘Not a Creature Was Stirring’

It’s Brimbles Sticker Club Time! (and check out the cute new postcard!)

This month’s Club is called ‘Not a Creature was Stirring’, and is a Christmas themed kit featuring lots of cute little Christmas mice.

Let’s look at the each sheet in detail…

First is the decorative sheet, featuring the mice themselves. As always, the sticker club is created with Anna’s original artwork, and the decorative sheet often showcases her talent the best.

The mice are called Winston, Cecil, Frankie, Gordon & Horatio. I’ll admit I don’t know yet which one is which, but I can tell you that Cecil is the one with the wrapped gift in his paws, and Winston is the one with the candy cane.

I think my favourite is the little guy who is wrapped up all snug and warm – I feel you little guy, I’m feeling the cold already and it’s still October! I’m also fond of the mouse with his Christmas lights all in a tangle, as I sympathise strongly with  his plight. Every year you wrap up the lights nicely before they go into storage, and then every year when you bring them out again they are in impossible knots – how does this happen? It’s like headphone/ear bud wires but 100x times worse! As such, I very much appreciate his worried little face!

Anyhoo, here are some close ups of the mice:

Ok next is the washi sheet, which has four wider strips, and three slim strips in co-coordinating colours.  I’m particularly loving that holly, it’s such a lovely green colour. Also the mini Winstons of course, so cute!

Sheet three is the functional sheet, in classic Christmas red and green.

Although I always love and use the functional stickers, my favourite part of this sheet is the little phrase at the bottom:

I just love the way the font makes it look like it’s been made with a label maker!

The last sheet is the one that mixes both decorative and functional planning. There’s four ‘full boxes’ – the ‘making a list’ one is a great idea! There’s three ‘half boxes’, then beautiful holly wreath, which you could use in a purely decorative way, or write something in the middle of it to highlight that task or event.

(there’s also a sneak peek of my Christmas planner  set up in this photo too! A video and corresponding blog post on this is coming soon!)

As ever are the functional headers, with six blank ones that you could add your own heading to, or just use to fill up some space. And last is the handful of Christmas words and phrases – useful for both planning and journalling!

And there we have it! If you haven’t got yours yet you can buy the November Sticker club here, or get next month’s here.

Thanks so much for reading, and remember to keep an eye out for my Design Team blog post either here or on the Brimbles Blog to see what I get up to with these stickers!

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.

Free Printable Sticker Kit – Summer Garden

Hello!

I promised you guys free printables on this blog and here is the first! – a simple sticker kit for your planner (or journal or scrapbook or whatever).

There is both a main kit with full boxes, half boxes, quarter boxes, etc.

FLORAL STICKER KIT - MS.PAPERLOVER JPEG

And a sheet of washi strips:

FLORAL WASHI - MS.PAPERLOVER JPEG

The photos in this kit are my own – so there’s no issues with copyright. The only thing I ask is if you use the stickers and share on your blog, instagram, YouTube, whatever, then you link back to me either with my web address or by tagging me on instagram 🙂 Plus I’d love to see how you use it!

The files you need are at the bottom of this post. There are cut files for silhouette users, and then pdf or jpeg files for non-silhouette peoples. I’ve made all the shapes really simple for those who don’t have a silhouette so they’re easy to cut. So just print out onto sticker paper and cut away! – and remember if you don’t have sticker paper to print on then it’s not too much more work to print on normal paper and then use glue!

note – I realise not everyone’s printers get along so well with photo files, I plan to have some printables in the future with my artwork which will be easier to print, so look out for those!

If you’d like to see how I used my kit then you can watch the Plan With me Here:

 

Ok, enough preamble, here are the files:

If you have any trouble with the files please feel free to email me – but please remember I am by no means a technical expert so I may not be able to answer everything.

Thanks so much and happy sticking!
