So I have a lot of stickease and complements left over and I pair them up with their respective paper packs as seen here.

Another nice trick is to pop up your stickease. Add your 3D foam tape (but leave the backing on). Then sprinkle baby powder on the back to block the adhesive. rub it in and hit off the excess. Now remove the backing to the foam tape and pop up like I did below.


I started going through the left overs but instead of just using the stickease I tried to use up the paper as well. I have found the fastest way to do this is to make cards, especially 3x3 cards because it is so easy.

The trick to 3x3 cards is having the right amount of embellishments.  You can see below some of the cards are fancier than others but the ones that only have the stickers are pretty boring. I will most likely go back and add some accents before I sue them :)




I've had these stickease for a long time and finally using them up, YAY! The cards turned out cute. I've added in a few non stickease cards that I made just to finish off the paper pack.

 


 


Here are my favorites though. La Belle Vie! I even cut out the remainder part of the stamp stickease and used those to create mock postage stamps. I only had a few stickease of this pack left because I liked them so much when I made my layouts.




Border Stickers are always the hardest for me to use up. I have found that if you have large piece of pattern paper then you can create this easy layout with 6x6 paper and place the border stickease right over the seem making a cleaner finish to the project.

I hope these projects have given you some ideas of how you can use up your extra stickease!  Now hop on over to Janet's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash.
