I'm So Crafty!
Hello sweet friends! It’s Kylie with you again today with a new layout I wanted to share.
I have a little confession to make! In all my years of scrapbooking I could probably count on one hand the amount of times I have scrapbooked a photo of myself! Is this something you are guilty of too?? I seem to be always the one behind the camera which is where I feel most comfortable. ( No selfie queen here folks). When I first saw the ‘Hey Crafty Girl’ collection I knew it was perfect for scrapbooking a photo of myself…..and do you know what?? I totally survived the experience and have since encouraged myself to do it more! It wasn’t so scary….
One of the many things I love with this collection is the colour palette. I selected the 2 x 2 elements paper and the 4 x 6 elements paper to form my background page. I did this by simply cutting some border pieces in the 2 x 2 elements sheet and adding them vertically over the top of the 4 x 6 elements paper. If you have seen my previous blog posts of late, you will know I have been trying to use more creative punches in my craft stash. I used some border punches again with the Simple Basics paper pack to create some fun interest to my background.
Once I was happy with my background, I created some embellishment clusters on opposite sides of my background paper. I did this using a mixture of the gorgeous chipboard stickers, die cuts and sticker sheet. Some were adhered with foam tape so that they sat up from the background with dimension.
I really love the main title I created for my page. This was made from the die cut pack and I added some phrases below from the sticker sheet. The positioning of these also gave a nice balance to my overall, completed layout.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and for seeing my layout. I hope it gives you a little inspiration for your next crafty project and maybe even encourage you to take and scrap more photos of yourself.
Until next time,
