Summertime Selfies with Sabrina Poole

Summertime is an awesome season for taking selfies! Whether you have a new pair of shades on, you’re lounging by the blue water of the pool, or you’re on an exciting summer adventure, flip the camera around and snap a photo of yourself! That’s what Sabrina Poole did, and we love the way that she used our June kit and add-ons to get her summer selfies documented in the traveler’s notebook spread she’s sharing with us today! Let’s take a look!

Hi everyone. This is Sabrina and I hope that you are enjoying your summer, if that’s your current season! Today I want to show you a fun way to use the June Kit and extras to make a traveler’s notebook page.

I was inspired by the three hexagon die cuts in the June Kit and I immediately wanted to make a spread with hexagons. I also loved the blue, fuchsia and green color combination! I had some fun selfies from last summer and decided to use those to create my spread.

Supplies | June 2019 Kit, Here’s the Story Journaling Tags, June Labels, Fuchsia Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Lime Green Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Green Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Summer Puffy Stickers, Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Magical Memories Wood Veneer Confetti, Everyday Phrases Vol. 2 Stamp, Summertime Stamp, Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack

My selfies were playful and my hair gave me the idea to make some visual movement on the spread, so I decided to get out my paint and my stamps to create a mixed media background. I splattered some paint on the spread and then used the Summertime Stamp to stamp a few phrases in the background. 

I then needed to make several more hexagons to add to the spread, so I used the Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack and the die cuts from the kit as templates to make my own hexagons. I also used some white cardstock to stamp some sentiments on as well, and since the cardstock was white I joined the edges of the hexagons so that they wouldn’t blend into the white background of the traveler’s notebook spread.

Next, I added a few things to the photos to bring more focus to them, including some stamped phrases using the June Labels with the Everyday Phrases Vol. 2 Stamp and a few Summer Puffy Stickers. I also used a scrap piece green paper from Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack to include the story behind this selfies, adding my journaling to the Here’s the Story Journaling Tag.

The finishing details were adding a title using the Lime Green Puffy Alphabet Stickers on two of the hexagons and some Magical Memories Wood Veneer Confetti to my spread. This spread was so much fun to put together and I loved getting out my paint and trying a new way to bring movement and color to a project!

I hope you not only document yourself, but also use some Elle’s Studio goodies when you do it. Have a great week!
