2016 Project Life // Arizona

I'm happy to say that I finally finished my 2016 Project Life album this past weekend and it is now proudly sitting on my bookshelf with my other completed albums. I find that there are always ebbs and flows with regards to my motivation when working on PL (which is one of the reasons why it took me so long to finish 2016), but I find it so rewarding to have an album full of the year's memories as the end result :) It's always a blast looking back at what happened in the past year.

Today I thought it would be fun to share one of the final spreads in my album which documents the last adventure of the year - a family trip to Arizona. We spent a week driving around the state and saw so many beautiful sights that completely blew me away. It was this trip that inspired the Arizona digitals in my store, though I wish I had the chance to use my new Drive set as well (I finished this double page spread before I had designed the Drive cards - c'est la vie!). Here are my spreads:

In a Creative Bubble products: Arizona cards (state card, adventuring card), Explorer cards no.1 (pink map card), Explorer cards no.3 (go see do card), Explorer elements, Arizona digital stamps

I added a digital stamp to my Grand Canyon photo before printing it out and I like the effect of the vellum arrow sticker pointing downwards.

In a Creative Bubble products: Explorer cards no.3 (yellow card), Explorer cards no.1 (green en route card, seeker of adventure card), Explorer elements, Drive digital stamps

I love the crispness of the road trip digital stamp (in white) right on top of the photo!

Hooray for finished projects! I have one last spread I want to share from my 2016 album and then I'm moving on to my next project :) Thanks for visiting! xo.

Shoppe Update

Hello hello! I released some new products at In a Creative Bubble today - the first update for this month with (hopefully) one more update at the end of June. I'll get right to it. Here's a look at what's new:

Hello Weekend Journaling Cards
This new set of cards is great for documenting your weekend adventures, no matter how small or big they are. I opted for a softer color scheme and my personal favourite is the brunch club card :)

Hello Weekend Digital Stamps

Drive Journaling Cards
I wanted to make a new set of road trip themed cards, and I decided to keep them black and white for ultimate versatility. The clean and simple b&w designs can easily be paired with any photo, ensuring that your pictures remain the highlight of your project!

Summertime Journaling Cards
With summer solstice/the first day of summer happening tomorrow, I knew it was time for a new set of summertime themed cards. I was inspired by summer sunsets when I chose this color palette, and I had lots of fun designing this set of cards! I hope you like them too.

Let's Party Journaling Cards
I feel like there are so many things to celebrate in May/June with friends graduating, it being peak wedding season, and lots of summertime birthdays. Hence, these new party themed cards! I opted for a brighter color scheme this time around - nice and fun and happy. The cards are a bit more whimsical but I think they're still clean and versatile designs, my favorite style!

Let's Party Digital Stamps

Chicago Journaling Cards
The newest destination set in my store is Chicago! It is high on my list of US cities I want to visit; I've heard lots of great things about it. Hoping I can make it out there one day, sometime soon! :)

Chicago Digital Stamps

Ticket Elements
Finally, my obsession with vintage transport tickets inspired this set of ticket elements! Cut them out and use them to add the perfect little detail to your projects. You can easily cut them out with scissors and use a one hole punch for the notches or use the print and cut feature of your Silhouette die-cutting machine (I tried it for the first time this past weekend and it is a game changer). I plan on layering these tickets with regular ephemera in my own mini-books :)

That's all for now! Don't forget to check out the Last Chance section of the store as well, since there are products that will be retired at the end of the month. Hope you had a lovely weekend! xo.

2016 Project Life // London

It's a little crazy that it is halfway through 2017(!!) and I haven't finished PL2016 yet. But I'm down to the last spread and I can finally work on all the other projects on my to-do list! The end is in sight, at least for my 2016 album :) These London spreads that I'm sharing today were from a trip last year and I had actually completed them awhile ago; my blog has just been sadly neglected these past few months. I do want to continue posting my completed projects here since it's nice to have everything in one place.

Anyway, this was my second time visiting London and we had a wonderful time sightseeing, eating good food, exploring different neighbourhoods, and going to the WB Studios Tour for Harry Potter. It is one of my favourite cities in the world and it has been on my mind lately as I was saddened and horrified to hear about the recent terrorist attacks. My heart goes out to the people and the city <3 Despite the recent attacks, I won't let that stop me from returning one day.

Here are my spreads:

In a Creative Bubble products: London cards (red bus card), Rome cards (exploring card), Let's Chill cards (blue card)

It always makes me happy when I get to use themed products from my stash, like this red London ticket washi tape I added to one of my photos.

In a Creative Bubble products: London cards (pink London card), Spellbound cards (witchcraft + wizardry card)

Visiting the WB Studios tour was definitely one of my trip highlights! I decided to include a big pop of red with this card from the Spellbound set.

That's it for now. I will share more projects soon! For more frequent updates, you can follow me on IG over here or here :)
