Shop Update

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing a brand new release at In a Creative Bubble and it's full of fun, summer-y designs (and a few extra sets as well)! Let's take a look at the new products:

Hello Summer Journaling Cards
Summertime is in full swing around here and I'm excited for long summer days and having fun under the sun! This seasonal set has lots of clean and colorful designs to help you capture your summer memories. The fruit card is my personal favorite :)

Hello Summer Digital Stamps

Outdoor Explorer Journaling Cards
I'm adding a new outdoor themed set of cards to the shop this month and I'm so happy with how they turned out. These cards are great for documenting your nature walks, hikes, camping getaways, or trips to national parks and there's plenty of room on the cards to jot down the stories of your adventures.

Outdoor Explorer Digital Stamps

Splash Journaling Cards
This next set of cards has designs that are perfect for days spent at the beach or by the pool. I really wanted to use shades of blue/mint for the cards and I added a pop of orange/yellow to the color scheme for a bright, summer-y look. Hope you like these cards as much as I do!

Splash Digital Stamps

Endless Summer Elements
Aside from the usual printable cards & digital stamp sets, I decided to add a set of summer themed elements to the shop this month since the travel versions were such a hit! I've mixed up the offerings in this set to include a hodgepodge of circles, squares, and adventure patch-inspired designs. These elements would look awesome in summer mini-books or layouts and I really enjoyed coming up with the designs :)

Aside from the summer-themed designs, I've also got two new sets of cards to add to the shop this month. Here's a look at them:

Stationery Addict Journaling Cards
It's no secret I'm a big fan of stationery and this set of cards is for all my fellow paper lovers! I love documenting visits to paper shops, my stationery hauls, and #onthedesk shots so I thought this set would be a fun addition for those who enjoy recording the same things :)

Recorded Journaling Cards No.10
I can't believe I've hit card set no.10 in my Recorded series! I released the first set of these cards way back in 2015 and they've been a fan favorite ever since. As always, the cards in this series are black & white for ultimate versatility, and set no.10 features an entire set of 4x6 cards since it's a size that is often requested for the shop. Hope you like them!

That's it for the July update this month! I hope you find some things you like and want to add to your collection. Thank you all for your continued support and for showing me your beautiful creations on Instagram (please tag me @inacreativebubble or use the #inacreativebubble hashtag so I can see them!). I really love seeing how you use my products and am constantly inspired by your creativity!

Hope you all have a great weekend! xo.

PS. Quick reminder that I've moved a few things to the Last Chance category of the shop...they'll be retired at the end of July. Always making room for new things :)

Shop Update // Travel Release

Hey everyone! I'm super stoked about May's In a Creative Bubble shop update because it's the time of the year that I release my big travel collection :) This year's new travel themed collection is called Adventure Bound, and it's the perfect one for documenting your adventures, experiences, observations, and travel stories. I've also got some new 3x8 and Traveler's Notebook sized products in the shop as well!


Let's start off with the Adventure Bound collection. This new collection is bright and whimsical, with modern and graphic designs, as well as a bit of my own handwriting. Along with the journaling cards and digital stamps, there are also two sets of printable elements and the fan-favorite black and white prompt cards. You can pick and choose which sets you would like, but if you're interested in the full collection, I've set up a bundle in my shop for all the products and you get 10% off! :) Here's a look at the new products:

Adventure Bound Journaling Cards No.1

Adventure Bound Journaling Cards No.2
The 4x6 tickets card will be super fun to fill in with little notes or bits of ephemera! :)

Adventure Bound Journaling Cards No.3
The 'around town' card is my personal favorite and it can definitely be used for adventures abroad or just wandering around your own city!

Adventure Bound Prompt Cards

Adventure Bound Elements No.1

Adventure Bound Elements No.2
I normally only do one set of elements for my travel releases, but I had too many ideas this time so I split it up into two sets. I'm particularly excited about this set because I designed some travel patch-inspired elements! These 'patches' are simple enough to cut by hand (or get fancy and pull out your Cameo for the print + cut feature!) and they will be the perfect touch as little embellishments for travel projects.

Adventure Bound Digital Stamps No.1

Adventure Bound Digital Stamps No.2

Bon Voyage // 3x8 + TN Travel 

I've also got some brand new 3x8 and traveler's notebook sized travel themed products to match this month's release. These products were designed to coordinate with the Adventure Bound collection, but I just gave them a different name so that there won't be any confusion with what's included in the Adventure Bound bundle as these 3x8 and TN sized products are completely separate.

3x8 Bon Voyage Layered Photo Templates

Bon Voyage Traveler's Notebook Papers
This Traveler's Notebook (4.33x8.25") sized paper set is a personal favorite from this whole release and it will be so fun to use them in my traveler's notebook as full pages and as inserts in my regular travel mini-books! The ideas are brewing and I can't wait to put them to use.

4.25x8.25" Bon Voyage Layered Photo Templates
I believe this is the first time I am releasing traveler's notebook sized layered photo templates and I think they will be a great addition to the shop. Would you like to see more TN sized products (papers and this size of templates) in the store?

This full sized release has a total of twelve new products and one collection bundle. Whew! It was definitely a labor of love designing this month's products but thankfully, travel is my favorite theme to make and I'm happy with the resulting designs! I cannot wait to use these for my own travel documenting. Hopefully you find them helpful for your travel projects as well. Thank you for checking them out and for your continued support of my shop. Have a great weekend!

PS. Just a reminder to check the Last Chance category in the store, since there are several products that will be retired at the end of May. Thank you! xo.

Quebec Travel Mini

I've posted snippets of this Montreal & Quebec City travel mini book over on Instagram, but I wanted to write up a blog entry as well now that it's completed. Some quick notes/thoughts before I share some of my favorite spreads in the album:

  • I used an old Studio Calico album I had purchased years ago. It's the 4-ring handbook format and I had to re-punch my page protectors to get them to fit, but I wanted to use this album for its wider spine. This trip wasn't too long but I thought the extra width/space would be useful since I had a lot of memorabilia (tickets, business cards, postcards etc) I wanted to include. 
  • When making travel mini-books like this one, my focus is always on the stories, photos, and memorabilia. I don't really experiment with a lot of creative techniques because I want to highlight the photographs and keep the album fairly simple and clean.
  • I also included a lot of 3x8 inserts in this album! I really like how the 3x8 pages turned out and they were great for adding additional photos or a longer story.
  • Aside from my printables, I also used journal cards from Feed Your Craft (from this kit I designed) and Studio Calico (from my stash of past kits). The stamps & embellishments I used were all from my stash as well and I didn't buy anything specifically for this project.
  • Since this was a summer trip, I wanted my spreads to be bright and colorful. I thought the album I chose was quite fitting with the overall look of the mini-book as well :)

Here's a look at some of my favorite pages in my album.

My title page is a colorful postcard I picked up in Montreal. I glued it on a piece of patterned vellum and on the back, I have a matching postcard from Quebec City.

I started this album off with a little travel tag insert I made. I used the tag to jot down the reason for this trip and some little details. The YUL airport code was stamped with this Olver alpha from SC - definitely a favorite in my stash!

I'm really glad I brought my instax camera on this trip! The instax photos are a fun addition to this album.

The 3x8 Adventure cards were my favorite set to use in this album :)

There's something about the colors of this spread (all that mint!) that just makes me happy :) I chose the cards and embellishments to match the business card I picked up at that restaurant.

One of my favorite things we did on this trip was seek out some Korean drama filming locations in Quebec City. I wanted to add this story to my album and include some screenshots from the TV show, so it was the perfect opportunity to use one of my 3x8 Snapshots templates. I labelled the location for each screenshot.

Who can resist a cute moose-in-socks postcard? :)

Love that the camera card from the Feed Your Craft Moments Captured kit coordinated perfectly with my Bonjour printable cards.

Another favorite alpha of mine is this Aurora alpha stamp set. There are matching number stamps as well.

I added a paper bag (with a postcard adhered to the front of it) to the back of the album so I could include a couple more pieces of ephemera.

There's still a bit of space in my mini-book, but it's pretty full and I'm glad I decided to use an album with a wider spine! So happy to have another completed album on my bookshelf.

Thank you for looking! :) Have a great weekend.
