"Selfies" - Mother & Daughter layout & Helmar

Hello Susan Weckesser fans! JJ here today, to share a mother & daughter layout with you. Helmar Adhesives are showcasing Susan K Weckesser all this week on their blog, so I wanted to give a little shout out to them as well.  ;)

My daughter and I were having fun taking 'Selfies' (quickie self-portraits), and I knew that Susan's lively papers would be perfect.  I die-cut a few 'polaroid frames' from the papers, and paired them up with some of Susan's stamps (all the stamps on this page are from the "Insta-cute" set.)

I popped up this sentiment stamp using Helmar Zap Dots.  All the embellishments were glued down with Helmar 450 Quick Dry.  (I used Helmar Acid Free for all the photos and papers).

I added one of the phrase stamps right on the 'polaroid frame':

Want a perfectly matched embellishment for your page?  Try stamping on the patterned paper!  Cut it out and pop it up with a Zap Dot, and you're all set. (And how cute is that camera stamp?!)

Thanks for visiting!
