Selfie | Mandy Melville

Hi everyone!

I'm back today to share another layout with you that I created for one of the current Cybercrop challenges in The Scrap Suite. Here's my layout...

"Selfie"


I created this for Sonia's challenge, which is all about scrapping with numbers:


I created this layout to celebrate my 13th wedding anniversary with my husband last year. We managed to get the kids minded so that we could go out for lunch to celebrate. We had a lovely time, and of course we had to commemorate the occasion with a selfie!

Who else managed to snap up some of those awesome Dusty Attic stencils when they went up in the store last month? Boy they flew out the door fast! Luckily I managed to purchase a few before they sold out! To create my background on this layout I used the Triangles stencil with Distress Ink and the Criss Cross stencil with black gesso.

I went a little crazy embellishing this layout and it is jam packed with D-lish goodies! Here are some closeups...


How awesome are these wood veneer words! They make adding a title to your layout super easy! I left mine raw, but you could also add paint or ink to them if you wanted to! Down the left hand side of my layout I added some strips of torn washi tape (these two are from previous Just Add Paper kits, but there are lots of other fun designs in store). I then created a little cluster above the title using a white pastel petal, a black mini rose, and a resin bird.


I actually used no patterned papers on this layout (I know, don't fall over, lol). All of the layers behind my photo are items that you'll find in the D-lish Scraps store. You can see here that I used a bitty bag from last month's Just Add Paper kit, which I cut in half and tucked under the top and bottom of the layers to give the illusion that it is a long piece. I also used a 5x7 diagonal stripe bag and one of the super pretty 6" lace doilies. To the top right hand corner of my photo I also attached a black mini wooden peg.


To the left of my photo I added a journal spot and a wooden heart button. (As well as an arrow from my stash).


Lots more D-lish goodies here! To the right of my photo I created another little cluster using a flair button from the 'Let's take a Selfie' set, with another white pastel petal and black mini rose. On the bottom of my photo I added a phrase from the black minifetti sheet as well as a grey sequin bow. You can also see here that I added another wooden heart button and a little paper flower from a previous Just Add Paper kit (I think it might be a bitty bloom). I also created a sub-title on my layout, which you can see here, using the Kaisercraft Alpha Stickers.

If you haven't checked out our Cybercrop challenges for this month, make sure you head on over to The Scrap Suite to take a look! You've got until 17th June to play along, so still plenty of time!

I'll be back tomorrow with my last share for the month!
