Stick-y and Sweet

We're going sticker-crazy at jingle belles ... this week's prompt is to use at least one (or perhaps many more than one) sticker on your card.

And to help us with this stick-y and sweet theme is one of our favorite sticker companies ... E.A.D. Designs.

E.A.D DESIGNS is a family owned and operated business. Emily Nelson (owner) started E.A.D DESIGNS in 2002, and in a few short years has grown into one of the largest retailers/wholesalers for Vinyl Lettering and Wall Art. They started their scrapbooking rub-on line in 2009 and in 2010 started offering their amazing Stickerz.

Not only did they provide Lauren & me with fabulous stickerz to design with this week (thank you very much), they are also providing one lucky participant in this week's prompt with a $25 Gift Certificate to their store (trust me, that will buy a whole slew of stickerz).

And ... we're also thrilled to have several talented members of the Design Team at E.A.D. Designs join us this week.

Liz of Liz's Paper Loft shares that she is married to a man that understands my need to be creative, and she has two grown daughters. She works part-time for a real estate company to support her *habit* ... a love for paper and all things crafty.

Liz says, "The torn paper landscape is perfect for these

Amy Tsuruta of Tsuruta Designs shares that she lives in the beautiful state of Washington with her two fabulous kids & is engaged to the best guy ever! Her dream job would be to craft all day (wouldn't we all love that luxury). Amy also hosts the fabulous Flashback Friday Blog where we get to revisit our past creations (and be grateful for how far we've come).

Amy says, "I combined stickers from three sets ~ Frames Rub-ons,
Woodland Friends Stickerz & Christmas Sentiments ~ for this fun holiday card design."

And here's what we made with our E.A.D. Designs Stickerz:

Stef says, "For my card, I combined clear stickerz from Jolly Stockings and Christmas Words with perfectly coordinated papers from Crate Paper's Snow Day Collection (while I prefer clear ... stickerz also come in white if you don't want the background color to show through). The sketch is from this week's Christmas Card Challenge ... so quick, easy & fun ... and did I mention ... stickerz are repositionable ... if you get things a little crooked, just lift it up & try again with no tearing."

Lauren says, "for me, the only hard part of this assignment was choosing from the huge--and totally FABULOUS--selection at E.A.D. Designs! once i settled on deck the halls and retro christmas clear "stickerz" sheets, my work was pretty much done. all i had to do was choose a few coordinating patterned papers, layer my elements together and ♥VOILA♥ a card that's merry and bright in every sense! oh and did i mention i still have enough stickerz left for AT LEAST 3 or 4 more cards??! niiiiiiiiiiice!"

We know you've got some stickers somewhere in your crafting stash ... pull them out and show us your holiday sticker creativity. And if you use E.A.D. DesignsStickerz for your card, remember to also link your card up at their monthly customer showcase for a chance to win even more goodies.

Whatever you decide, link it up by 6pm (EST) next Wednesday night, November 16th. Keyword for galleries or the flickr group is JB46 ... we can't wait to see your sticker magic.
