Selfie / My Scraps & More

Happy Tuesday, friends!  Today I'm sharing a layout that I created for My Scraps & More.  I lifted a page from Yu-Shan, and I used the Basic Grey B-Side collection.

I'm so sad that this my last layout for My Scraps.  I'm sure you've probably heard by now the store is closing at the end of December.  I've very much enjoyed being a part of the team since April 2012, and I'm going to really miss it.  All the girls there are amazing, and I love Audrey and the rest of the team so much.  I completely understand her decision to close it, though.  Life happens and things change.  I'm still sad, though :(  A huge thank you to Audrey for doing such a fabulous job with the store and the forum!

Okay, now on to my page :)  I started with this awesome distressed grey background paper and used a foam brush and acrylic paint to created a few bold brush strokes like Yu-Shan did.  I used tissue paper, a little fish-tailed banner piece, a triangle, and I used the same title as she did.  Her one large photo was also centered with layers.

I love the mix of colors and patterns in this collection!  It's so fun, and the sentiments are really awesome.  I didn't have any orange letter stickers, so I used some acrylic orange paint and smudged it on some white Thickers.  Worked like a charm!

And as you can see, I decided to add some stitching AFTER I stuck the Thickers down.....and they sort of ripped when I tried to peel them up.  I did my best to "fix" them...haha.  These little white alpha stickers are from Evalicious, and I just had to add that in there :D

I used a lot of the 6x6 papers for these torn layers.  I added in lots of machine stitching, and I also stitched on that "Hello Gorgeous" die cut at the top.

I colored that little arrow with a green gelato, and I traced around the "3" triangle with a black Sharpie to make it pop a little more.  I added in a flair button from my stash and then added in some orange tangled thread.

Here's one more close-up of the top.  I used my craft knife to slice around the "Stoked" letters so I could overlap them on top of my photo without covering them up.  The "haha!" stamp is from my stash....it's from a Fiskars set I found at Michael's.

Here's the process video for this page...I hope you enjoy and get some fun ideas!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great day!
