Yes! Power to the stickers - especially Jolee one's - right Ducky? Great idea ladies!

KESagers

Sounds good to me Chardonnay1965 and ICraft! I even have silk flowers and little gems that really are stickers. Altered stickers like Chardonnay's take it up to a whole new level.:) I can tell already this is going to be a blast!

Just Ducky

Oh boy do I have stickers to share so some will be on their way to Finland. :) Anyone else needs stickers just shoot me a PM.

Kristin, you are so sweet! I'll try to find some nice stickers from the huge toy store here. I haven't seen stickers here for a long time.

there is a bit of the DO NOT USE stickers thing but I think stickers do have a place with atcs - if they are high qty stickers used to accent I think they can be used and if they modified even more so :)

I'm up for it if I can find some time - after all stickers are nothing more than sticky images <G>

the butterflies and bittersweet are stickers

does a sticker marathon mean we have to run with stickers

ICraft

I'm so glad this is a few weeks away - hopefully I'll have time to prep for the marathon so I can make more than 3 cards. :jiggy:

This is a fantastic idea - I have just gone mad at a paper show here and bought some really cute stickers. Count me in!!

I don't have alot of stickers either. I will have to see what I can find when I get to town.

I would so love to do a couple of cards for this but I will be OOT then. Maybe next round.

I'll stick around and watch for the official playa thread. William's birthday is that Sunday, so I prolly won't get any art done that day.

I make my own stickers with my Xyron. Use that for clean adhesion all the time when collaging.

Just about any collaged card in my gallery has my home-made stickers. I've got plenty of commercial ones as well.

I was all excited when I saw this until I looked up the dates on my calendar. That's the weekend my SIL & BIL will be down from Penna. So, guess I still won't be able to participate in my first a-thon :( I'm sure you'll have fun tho!!

Just Ducky
10-04-2010, 10:47 PM
well darn it Debi sure would love to have you come and play... but keep a look-out, I am sure more will be coming....

and so glad there is interest in this Stick it to IT marathon idea... just don't get yourself stuck on the 22rd for something else to do... we gotta stick together on this..:jiggy:

Just ordered a refill for my 510, and a new 1.5" for the little stuff. I go through the 510 rolls so fast it seems!! (But then, I really do use it for almost everything...)

Thanks Ducky. I sure hope there will be more coming up !

I got one of them Xyron thingies... keep forgetting about using it... will have to dig it out and give it a try... I need more practice... messed up a few images when I first used it...
but yea... gonna try again...

Cat's Cradle
10-08-2010, 12:19 PM
Ever since I first used one when I was teaching at Michael's, I've been hooked on them. Love, love, love my Xyron! I have the 510, so I have all sorts of fun stuff for that.

Hi, I'v never join an A Thon before. Plus I only have a handful of stickers. Point me the way to check out about A Thon please. I think I have a pretty good idea what to do with the stickers. They are not craft punch right?

Just Ducky
10-08-2010, 11:56 PM
hi Rita... very simple Rita... this marathon will begin on Friday Oct 22 at Noon... YOUR TIMe
everyone around the world will be starting at noon by their clock... and everyone will finish their cards at midnight .. midnight your time... so we will have gals here all weekend at all different times of the day and night...

so you can do a bit of prep work before YOUR start time, but shouldn't make any cards till your start time...
NOw stickers... I really don't know what store types you have in Singapore but hope you have some kind of scrapbook store... a craft store... department store with a craft/hobby area.... you can find stickers of Flowers.. animals... trees... most any thing really... just think of it as a image with glue already on the back... so you can just peel it off and use it...
I will send you a message and hopefully explain it better for you...

hay, any of you gals can help me out here... I don't think I can type to Rita a easy answer...
I can speak it... but all thumbs putting the words in print...

Better remind me or I will forget all about it. My mind has this thing about wondering off and forgetting things until it is over with.

KESagers

I think you did a good job summing it up Ducky!

Dsign49 - I'll try to remind you but I'm not sure I'm any better than you are.;)

I got to Bismarck today. Had to get some belts for the combine as we are combining corn. I got to Hobby Lobby and they had sticker 1/2 off. I got some fall, christmas and lots of other one so I think I am ready for this sticker-a-thon.
Great Kristin to remind me.

I'm a n00b - how does this work? Do I just dedicate that weekend to creating art with stickers, and post my results somewhere?

KESagers
10-10-2010, 03:15 PM
Art By Camilla- here is how Ducky explained it in post #39

this marathon will begin on Friday Oct 22 at Noon... YOUR TIMe
everyone around the world will be starting at noon by their clock... and everyone will finish their cards at midnight .. midnight your time... so we will have gals here all weekend at all different times of the day and night...

so you can do a bit of prep work before YOUR start time, but shouldn't make any cards till your start time...

But yes - basically you jump in when every you can during the established time - some of us play all weekend and some can just play a little - it's all good. A day or two before the marathon starts and "official" thread will be started and that is where you will post your cards. You don't have to upload to your gallery to post in the thread but that's the way I do it. Also since this is a "sticker-a-thon" a sticker needs to be somewhere on/in your art.

Just let us know if you have questions - we'll get you hooked in no time!;)

Hi, I've always wanted to to an "a-thon" but was always busy when they were happening. I'll plan on this one. I always feel like stickers are taboo on my regular cards, but I've got some good ones to use. Some people are stuck on stickers, some are stuck up about stickers, but stick my name on the list and I'll stick around that weekend, sticking stickers.

Here I got all these sticker and I might not get to play until Sunday.

One of the Grandaughter want to come down, because she doesn't have school Thursday and Friday. Can't say know to her. So If I have one I better ask the other one if she wants to come too. They are so precious and grow so fast and pretty soon they won.t want to come to the farm.

When Sara was little when you asked what her name was she would always say "Sara at the Farm".

She loves the cats.

will if I can't play I will be lurking when I get a chance.

Let the granddaughters make cards too! That's the beauty of stickers - they can be used by all ages. Cut up some scraps of various papers, get out the crayons, glue stick, and stickers, and hand them some blank cards. :)

Great idea Camilla. They might just enjoy that when they are not out seeing what cats they can catch.
Thanks.

Just Ducky
10-14-2010, 11:02 PM
hi Jill... yes, what Camilla suggested sounds like a good afternoon fun time with the grandaughters... I just might swing by and join in....

and Spirit Soul... now this is a soul after my own heart... we stickers got to stick together..
so many stickers... so little time..

KESagers.... how is kitty Calvin doing ???

now the POLL I put up to see if ya all would like to stick with us... dang thing is closed now... didn't see that I had a closing date... but that's ok.. we are a GO for this stick up marathon ....:jiggy:

10-15-2010, 12:12 PM
When this is decided to have, I recommend on to put the dates in the Calendar of Scheduled Media-A-Thons because there are going to be so many a-thons now and someone can arrange one at the same time. We don't want to have a competition between two a-thons, right?

KESagers
10-15-2010, 03:18 PM
Good idea Sniisk! Thanks for the reminder.

Dsign49 - I trade with children so I'll be on the lookout for art by your grands. :)

Calvin is healing well and so far he has been such a good boy. We are both tired of that collar but it's done it's job. Got my fingers crossed that it's gone on Monday!

will be posting the Offical Sticker thread on Monday and then ya all can come and hang out till Fridays starting time... then get them stickers out and let the fun begin..:jiggy:

I'm looking for papers now and I'll put them in the order by colours. And then I'll put the stickers on the top of the piles. Then it's easier to start creating new week :).

KESagers
10-16-2010, 06:04 PM
Yes - I agree with Linnes - a single sticker qualifies. It will be fun to see all the different art we create with stickers.

Sniisk that's a great idea. If I have time this week I'm going to do that also.

Haha - I love it Stuck up about stickers - that's a good one. You know there are the nice stickers and then there are the sticker stickers. I have some of both but I'm planning on using my nice stickers - I surely have plenty - the other ones make for good art projects for the grandkids.
