Let Me Take a Selfie

I have a confession. I am a selfie-girl! I’ve been taking photos of myself for years, long before this became a craze, and well before the name ‘selfie’ came along.

If you are not sure what a selfie is… where have you been hiding? LOL! A selfie is simply a photo you take of yourself, usually at arm’s length.

I was thrilled when my friend Claire Cummings shared her selfie scrapbook page on Facebook the other day. Immediately I asked her if I could share it here.

Storytelling Tip:

Use pop culture, like Claire did by using selfies and the chorus from the song #Selfie by the Chainsmokers, to capture a moment in your life, or the life of your kids. These pop culture of today will make this moment in time memorable, so make sure you use it in your scrapbooks!

Design Tip:

By splitting this page into sections Claire was able to add interesting pattern and keep a large area available for a title with impact. A simple colour scheme makes this page eye catching and will save time when you are embellishing.

A Sneak Peak at My Next Project!

I’ve been planning on creating an “Alice’s Greatest Selfie’s” scrapbook for a while. After years of taking photos of myself I thought it would be fun to gather them all up in one scrapbook. I’ve put off starting this project because I just haven’t seen a book that made me think, “This is it!”

Close to My Heart is releasing a new My Crush book called In the Pink Book. When I saw it I knew it would be perfect for my selfie collection!

Isn’t it pretty? I love how gorgeous the pages and embellishments are for this adorable book! I’ve ordered it and I’m gathering up some of my selfies so I can get started on this project. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the photos I’ll be using.

Bonus points to me for my multi- selfie!

I can’t wait until I can share this project with you, so cross your fingers that my order arrives quickly! I’d love to see your selfies too, post one, or more on the Scrapbook Wonderland Facebook page! HERE  Please leave a note to let Claire know if you love her page too!

Let your creativity shine!

Alice.
