Blues Clues

When I saw this weeks challenge for Child's Play, I knew I had to participate. This weeks challenge is based on the TV show Blues Clues.

When my son was about 2 years old, Blues Clues was one of his favorite cartoons. I have to admit it is one of my favorites too.  As you can see in the photos, he had multiple things from Blues Clues such as the inflatable Thinking Chair, a Blues Clues pillow & talking mailbox. He also had a stuffed Blue & his 2nd birthday cake was Blues Clues themed. I will have to do a layout on that another time.


I have had these Blues Clues stickers for quite awhile now. I am thinking I bought them at Archivers because they have quite a bit of cartoon themed stickers. When I was at my retreat in Wisconsin, I thought about putting the Mailtime song on the layout. We looked up the song on YouTube since I couldn't remember exactly how the song went. I dont know what happened in the middle photo with the white stripe but a friend of mine suggested that I write something on it because I didnt know what to do about it.  I didnt have everything with me for the layout so I waited until I came home to make it.


I do like my layouts to have some 3D embellishments so I have put some foam square dots behind most of the stickers. To me, the stickers look too plain just slapped on the page. I cut the letters for the Mailtime words on  my cricut & then inked them. I also inked the wood veneer quote with first white chalk ink & then tried distress stain. They soak into the wood so it didnt turn out too white but it is different from just right out of the package.

I used my scallop punch for the background of my sticker. For the Thinking Chair sticker, I cut around the sticker with my trimmer & used my corner rounder on the corners. I fussy cut the mailbox sticker, added foam dots & added it to the house sticker.

  1. Hi Heather! Love this layout! Blues Clues was one of my fav shows, even when I was older. (I won't tell you what age I stopped watching it...) I remember the song! "We just got a letter, we just got a letter, we just got a letter. Wonder who it's from!"
