Stick 'em Up!

Nope, it's not a hold up...just a new project I'm sharing today, over at The Paper Bakery!!  I have mentioned my little obsession for the coffee stir sticks.  They are so fun to use on your layouts, and for today's project, I decided why not pair them with the Custom Flair buttons, that Sarah adds to the amazing monthly Kits.  The April Kit, Lemonade Stand, had a fun mix of Lily Bee, Dear Lizzy, awesome Printables...and of course, Flair!!  I thought it would be fun, to feature the Flair on a few pre-made stick embellishments.  Here's what I came up with:

These were easy peasy!!  You can use popsicle sticks for these embellishments, or next time you're at your local coffee shop, pick up a few of the stir sticks!  I used some bits from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection and the Flair buttons from the Kit, to create several different looks.  This is also a perfect way to use up those last little bits in your Kit.  Add in a few little extras like baker's twine or paper clips and Voila!...ready made embellishments for your next layout.  

I also used my last stick embellishment on a layout, based on our first Sketch for April, created by Juliana Michaels.  You can play along with us each month, for your chance to win some scrappy goodies from The Paper Bakery.  I'll share the sketch and a sneak of my layout, and if you would like to see the full page, stop by The Paper Bakery Blog!!

The challenge for this Sketch will remain open until Midnight tonight, if you would like to play along and link up on The Paper Bakery Blog.  If you miss out on this one, a new Sketch will be posted Sunday, April 21st, and you won't want to miss it!!
