TIPsy Tuesday - Sticky Note

Have you noticed how some stickers are really sticky and some aren't?  With some stickers, where you put them is where they stay regardless of whether you are happy with the placement.  With others, you can move them around, even put them back on their original sheet to use on another project if you change your mind. 

Recently, I bought some October Afternoon label stickers from the Cherry Hill collection which are very versatile.  But of course the first one I used, I got it a little crooked and wanted to reposition.  Uh-uh!  That sticker was stuck - crooked or not. 

So I made a note on the remaining sheet of stickers that says "Super Sticky."  Then I'll know these are not repositionable.  Other stickers might get a note that says "Repositionable" or something that helps me know how careful I have to be in adhering them.

When I decided to add a date to the layout above, I again went to the versatile October Afternoon stickers.  I noticed my note and paid extra attention to how I positioned the sticker the first time - because I knew this "Super Sticky" one wouldn't give me a second chance.

(Now, I'm not cheating and showing you a crooked picture to disguise a crooked sticker. Really! :-)
 I had to take the photo at an angle because I'd already put this one in the album and the transparency produced glare.)

One other project note:
  • I had already taken a bite out of this transparency by cutting away a corner to use on another project.  I covered up by cutting large flowers from some SU! cardstock.
Happy Tuesday, thanks for visiting!
