Focusing On Puffy Alphabet Stickers with Tracey Fox

Puffy stickers are all the rage in the paper crafting industry, but the awesome puffy alphabet stickers in our shop are so easy to use on any project you may want to create! With a clean font, and a variety of colors, you can really make these alphas a stand-out feature on your page, the way that Tracey Fox did on the layout she’s sharing with us today:
Since I absolutely LOVE using alpha stickers and long titles on my pages, I was so excited to accept the challenge to use Elle’s Studio’s awesome puffy alphabet stickers on a project.

Have you seen the recent design meme of using a list of names in a sans serif font separated by ampersands? These lists, which are often printed on t-shirts and posters and mugs, list out members of bands or the cast of characters from your favorite TV shows, and they’re a fun way to show off that you’re a fan of something. Inspired by this trend, I wanted to show my own fandom of my scrappy friends. I printed ten photos of me posing with ladies I met up with at the Scrap Gals scrapbook retreat in Nashville last fall, and I used the puffy alphabet stickers and the Icon Stamp to make a long list of all of their names and ampersands.

The puffy alphabet stickers are just under an inch tall, so I made small marks on my background cardstock at every inch down my 12″ page so I would get the names spaced out evenly. After I got the alpha stickers stuck down in a mix of colors and stamped the ampersands in between each name, I cut some 12″ strips of paper from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection and the Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection to adhere to the left side of the page. I chose a royal blue patterned paper from the Family Fun collection for the largest paper, because I love how it matched the new Cobalt blue puffy alphabet stickers, which are coming to the Elle’s Studio shop tomorrow!

I adhered my small photos in little clusters going down the patterned paper on the page, and then I searched through my stash of Elle’s Studio embellishments to select and add items in colors that matched the puffy alpha stickers. Since the colors in Elle’s Studio products are so consistent and designed to match, this process was super easy and so much fun!

I pulled embellishments from the Live Laugh Love Wood Veneers, Title Builder Acrylic, and Heart of Gold Chipboard Stickers and stuck them down in, on, and around my photos. I also used some stars from the Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers and die cuts from the March 2018 kit, which are part of tomorrow’s release! (Don’t you love a sneak peek?!)

A layout like this is the perfect excuse to stop hoarding those puffy alphabet stickers in your stash (and to buy the beautiful new cobalt blue ones coming to the shop tomorrow) and put them to use. Try adding a “character” list to one of your projects! You can use your alpha stickers to spell out the names of your family members, the members of a band or sports team you love, or you can do what I did and list friends who inspire you. Thanks for stopping by the blog today, and we hope to see you back tomorrow for release day!
