If you are like me you rarely do layouts with photos of yourself, but now with the popularity of selfie photos we have so many choices that we should be able to find at least one that we like right? Right, so my challenge to you is to also give a selfie photo layout a try. What better way than to pull out some brand new Jillibean Soup Witches Brew papers and embellishments with stamps from the new Sentiments Stamp and Stencil set?
Selfie layout by Patty Folchert
Starting out with a white cardstock base I began by adding three coordinating papers from the brand new Witches Brew Halloween mini collection from Jillibean Soup. That’s right these papers are from a “Halloween” collection- but they translate very well into an everyday layout as you can plainly see. I really love the color combo in fact. The papers were added in chunks on the top and bottom of the layout as shown. Then I added a border strips at a diagonal angle on top and bottom to further frame out the center. A 12x12 Simple Circles placemat provided the two rows of white cardstock circles then added into the center. Next I tore off two pieces of washi tape and added onto the border strip, and then using my sewing machine I stitched the border strip edges on one side.
The stamped sentiment bubbles were made with the new Jillibean Stamp and Stencil Set-Sentiments in black ink onto white cardstock. I then cut them out and set them aside to dry. Next I began layering the photo mat with more Witches Brew papers and black cardstock. I added some more stitching to the right side of the photo mat. Next I added my photo with a couple star stickers just for fun. The title piece was created with part of a mini placemat “123” and an arrow from coordinating paper with the fab new Black glitter Beanboard Alphas to spell out “Selfie”- I love these letters! Witches Brew die-cut stars were added with a few wood sprinkles and a snapshot flashcard. Two more stamped accents were create with black ink, white cardstock and the Birthday Bisque stamp set to make the “Noted” and “Today” tabs. Then I made a cluster at the top of the layout with more Witches Brew papers, a wood sprinkle and die-cuts. Then I layered the stamped word bubble sentiments back onto the page.
As easy as 1-2-3, no more excuses it is time to print up one of those selfie photos and get to it. We strive to capture the story of our lives for our families to cherish; those stories are incomplete without photos of ourselves.
