Hey everyone! Hope you're continuing to stay safe and well in these uncertain times. It's crazy to think that we're already nearing mid-May and we've been in lockdown for two months now. The days continue to be full of ups and downs but we're managing to get by despite various stresses and worries. There's been talk in the city of slowly easing restrictions these coming weeks and months, and hopefully things look up soon.
Clearly the pandemic season has continued to be on my mind these days and as there have been several requests for products to document our current times, this release focuses on just that. Today's small shop update at In a Creative Bubble is all about quarantine life and how we're spending our time at home these days, and I hope you find these products useful for your own journals. Let's take a look at what's new:
New Normal Journaling Cards
The first theme I wanted to focus on for this release was 'the new normal' and how we're all trying to stay sane and keep going in these weird times. "Feeling all the feels and confusing all the days" basically sums up my quarantine life!
New Normal Digital Stamps
New Normal Elements
Stay Home Journaling Cards
The second theme I wanted to focus on is 'staying home'. I released the At Home journaling cards last month, but as I mentioned, I had lots of ideas on this theme and decided to expand on it again with some specific prompts on how we're spending our days at home, whether that be making stuff, reading, spending more time in the kitchen (100% me right now), binge watching shows, etc. I think these cards can definitely be useful for everyday life documenting as well, outside of this current season.

Quarantine Life Traveler's Notebook Papers
This release was originally going to be just the 3x4 journal card sets (and coordinating digital stamps & elements), but I had a lot of feedback over the weekend that people would appreciate Traveler's Notebook sized versions of the journaling cards as well. So this TN paper pack is a last minute addition to the shop and is a compilation of select designs from the New Normal journaling cards and the Stay Home journaling cards, redesigned to fit the TN size.
Since I wanted to keep these TN papers black and white so they would be more versatile, that meant I had to choose which designs would work best in this limited color scheme and format...I ended up choosing nine cards from the New Normal set and eleven cards from the Stay Home set. Due to the uneven numbers, I combined the designs from both sets for this ultimate pack of TN papers to help document life in quarantine. Hope you like them!
And that's a wrap for today's release. Hope you all continue to take care and thank you for stopping by and continuing to support In a Creative Bubble! xo.

Happy April everyone! I hope you're well and safe wherever you are. March felt like it spanned an entire year and I'm so glad it's finally over. So much has changed and shifted in our everyday lives and as we attempt to adjust to this new normal, I've found solace in keeping a journal, continuing to create, and looking through my past scrapbooks (reminiscing on simpler, happier times!). I haven't quite decided how I'll be documenting covid-19/global news in my Project Life yet, but I know that it will for sure make an appearance since it has so drastically affected daily life.
Today's new release at In a Creative Bubble is focused on springtime, home, and positivity - themes that have been on my mind these days and ones that will hopefully inspire us to continue looking for the good in life and to record details of our everyday. Let's take a look at what's new this month:
Spring Vibes Journaling Cards
A simple and fresh set of cards to document springtime, warmer weather, and sunnier days. I wanted to make sure there was a lot of green in this set, and my personal favorite card is the one with the plants that says 'good things'!
Spring Vibes Digital Stamps
At Home Journaling Cards
I've always been a major homebody and have made designs centred around the idea of home in the past (Indoorsy + Introvert Mode are still in the shop), but I'm happy to revisit this theme as I've been getting a lot of requests for new cards to document our current times spent staying in. I had lots of ideas for this and found it hard to narrow down to one set, so I may have to expand on this theme again later! For now, here's a set of cards that's all about hanging out at home and enjoying the great indoors.
At Home Digital Stamps
Take Care Journaling Cards
In these tough times, I'm finding it so important we take care of ourselves (and others, of course!) - learning to slow down and take a break from the news and media, looking for happy moments in our everyday life, finding positive ways to fill our time, and staying connected with loved ones. This set of cards is designed to help you document just those things and I hope you find it useful in your memory keeping.
Take Care Digital Stamps
Right Now Journaling Cards
This new set of black and white cards is perfect for everyday documenting. I'm sure I will be reprinting them a lot because using "-ing" words as prompts is my favorite way to jot down notes on life right now.
Good Vibes Elements
Finally, I've got a new set of everyday printable elements in the shop. There's a touch of spring and a focus on the positive stuff in life, and these colors and designs were designed to coordinate with the newly released products so they'll be easy to mix and use together. The happy sunshine is my favorite!
Hoping you like the new release and as always, thank you for checking in, continuing to support this shop, and sharing how you use IACB products to help tell your stories! Please take care and have a good weekend (at home) everyone! xo.
