Stamping in Scrapbooking #5 - A Girl Like Me

The other day on the Faith Hope Washi Facebook group, we were speculating about who would play us in a movie about our lives...then we started talking about creating a scrapbook layout about it. So I did.

I think it's important to document the silly side of ourselves. I know that I have a tendency toward the emotional or toward everyday moments. This was such a fun layout to create and shows a different side of me and I love that.

I wanted to focus on stamping your title for this week's Stamping in Scrapbooking episode. I used three different fonts from Close to My Heart (including one called "Jennifer's Hand" which happens to be my handwriting!) to create a Lifetime Original Movie type title. I don't know if this title will be relevant in the future, but I think it's funny right now.

I used Peacock ink for the main part of the title and black ink for the rest. I think it's cool and makes a big statement.

I found a die cut in the Shimelle True Stories collection that says Original and I had to use it because it went with the whole Lifetime movie thing. Hahaha! (Speaking of die cuts, you can still get my new class, Die Cut Diversity, for the introductory rate until Monday!)

My journaling talks all about the reasons I think Kate Winslet would be perfect to play me in a Lifetime movie. It's really cheeky and I had so much fun writing it.

I used some modeling paste and a Heidi Swapp stencil to add some stars to the background and kept the rest of the embellishing to a minimum.

If you want to see how this layout came together, watch the process video here or over on my YouTube channel.
