May’s Product Picks: Stars

When I think about shapes commonly found in scrapbook supplies, one of the most universal that comes to mind is stars. They can work on pages for boys or girls, vacations or special events, and with any color, size, or materials you want to use. Whether you’re focusing on a future star, an all-star, or whether it’s a patriotic symbol to you – there certainly is plenty of product to choose from.

What I really appreciate is how many companies are coming out with useful products that can be used on anything from county fair to picnic to just because layouts, and everything in between. Today I’d like to share some recent favorite finds that feature one of my favorite scrapbooking shapes: stars!

We R Memory Keepers has a great line called “Old Glory” that looks especially useful. I like the paper pad available for the line (shown above).

I also think the embellishments like this glitter lace would be easy to use – and so fun.

Bo Bunny has a fun new line called Block Party that is filled with warm colors and star-spangled inspiration.

If you search digital sites, you’re bound to find all kinds of fun things. One of my favorites has to be these star flourish brushes by Katie Pertiet of Designer Digitals.

EK Success has a photo corner punch with star cut-outs that looks like a lot of fun.

Last but not least, Pink Paislee has a collection called Starlight that is filled with stars and potential. I especially love the sticker sheet, but really it’s all fantastic to use. Here is a layout I created with it:

I am having so much fun with this line, I picked up extra at my local store! I really like the yellow and all the different blues in the Starlight line because it lets me expand the subjects I can use it on that much farther. Not to mention it has one of the best sticker sheets I’ve had the pleasure to utilize in a long while. Every piece is wonderful!

Supplies: Pink Paislee patterned paper, sticker sheet, and letters; Ranger enamel accents (white);  American Crafts pen; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ-Runner

If you have a favorite star product, or use for stars in your scrapbooking, please feel free to share!

    Stars are pretty versitle, and not really a girly shape, so it’s great for my boyz layouts. Martha Stewart has a star border punch I’ve been eyeing for a while now, but didn’t know EK has a corner punch. Hmm… I think a little shopping is in order!

    I want to chime in that I really like the Nestibilities Star Dies from Spellbinders. With them I can cut almost anything into a star shape- fabric, paper, foamies- they’re really versatile! Thanks for a great post, May! -Jenny from

    I love Stars too – especially scrapping mainly boy pages. SU has a great star punch that I use often. I like the look of that EK punch

    Love that star corner punch from EK! I haven’t seen it before. Think I might need that one, especially with my daughter and son-in-law in the Air Force.

    Love all these papers. I love my cuttlebug star folder too. I’ve used it on some teen boy birthday cards and it looks great.
