So Happy – Easy To Use Sticker Elements

When I first got to know about the new Lady Pattern Paper Oh my word! sticker sheets I was so excited to see the designs. With her quirky sense of humour, fabulous colour combos and gloriously local designs I was sure it would be nothing short of spectacular – and trust me they are. But I am sure by now you may have gotten your hands on a sheet or two and will know exactly what I am talking about… If not here is a little sneak of what I created with my sticker sheet this week.
Sticker Elements - So Happy Layout

I combined my Lady Pattern Paper with some other patterned papers for this layout, but the main feature is the sticker elements I added. I love how the stickers add wording and patterns to the layout in a subtle way.

Having said that, I know the purpose of a sticker is to make crafting quick and easy. After all having anything with an adhesive at the back is a bonus. But for me a sticker can look just like that – a sticker – very quickly and for that reason I alter my stickers a bit to make them look less, well, easy.

Sticker Elements - Always Wear Your Invisible Crown

Step 1

Carefully pull the sticker off of the sticker sheet.

Step 2

Adhere the sticker to a piece of white cardstock. By adhering it to cardstock you make the sticker firmer and more substantial.

Step 3

Cut around the edge and add some chalking around the edges to hide any cutting marks.

Now adhere the sticker elements to your layout using double sided tape or adhesive.

For me adding stickers to a firmer white base turns them into a cardstock element with a bit more weight and substance. It turns an ordinary sticker into an embellishment with punch.

I don’t do this with all my stickers, for instance the pink XO border strip I used directly onto my layout. For this border I did not need it to be thicker or firmer, only to act as a base for layering other elements onto. So instead I used it as is, but tore it in half so that only used what I needed for my design.

Sticker Elements - Little Heart

To pull the red of my photos through I used the red heart stickers on either side of the layout. These are perfect tucked underneath some flowers or grouped tightly with other elements. I love how the stickers made my layout quick and easy with a special touch – matching my patterned papers perfectly.

I have so many stickers left over for loads more cards and layouts.
