Trendy Tuesday – Potty People

Trendy Tuesday- Potty People
Katherine Elliots

Trick or Treat!  Did the name of today”s post scare you?  I hope not! 

I have to admit I had to laugh when I got the word that Andrea had an interest in the trendy figures that are so aptly named, “Potty People.”  The name caught me off guard, but the images I instantly recognized.   You”ll recognize them, too, not just from the public restroom doors that they adorn, but from plenty of fun paper crafts.  Take a look…

These people appear on cards and scrapbook pages from stamps, digital designs, embellishments or die cuts.

Despite the fact that these people are supposed to represent a male or female, the style of the images is perfectly gender neutral.  That means you have a lot of options whether you are crafting for a man or woman.

While I was researching this trend, I found quite a few on-line chats about looking for these sets.  Some stamp sets are not that easy to find,  so I did some of the work for you and found some brands and sources.  Just check out the inspirational pieces and sets shown below…

A stamp set with multiple coordinating sentiments is always a good find!

The embellishments featuring Potty People look like so much fun!  The washi tape and little wooden people featured below are super cute…

The people make great additions to other projects outside of cards and scrapbooking, too.

Linked people shown in the project below evoke such a warm sense of togetherness.  Check out this lovely set of decorated chipboard Potty People using the Maya Road Accordion people…

Die cutter fans, you are not out of the loop either.  If your household has been blessed with an electronic cutter, then you can cut the perfect size Potty Person for your project.  Cricut”s Going Places cartridge has your basic Potty People and other sign images for many uses in your creative designs.

Here is a quick view to show you some of the images that are included on the cartridge (it”s hard to find a digital picture of all the options you have with these cartridges):

Of course, as we all get ready to hand out the candy tomorrow, I cannot resist adding an image of a Potty Person who is already in costume!

I hope you feel treated with some trendy images today.  Have a fun, safe Halloween!  Happy crafting!

  1. They seem to be pretty versatile. I think this trend will have to percolate a bit before I jump in fully. Cute projects, though.
