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.

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.

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.

Hi everyone! I've got a couple things to update you on. First off, it's time for the annual spring sale at In a Creative Bubble! To celebrate this new season, I've got a storewide sale running in my shop from now until Tuesday evening. Use the code SPRING2020 for 15% off your order.
Secondly, I have been following the news on the coronavirus outbreak since mid-January, and what a concerning and serious time we are currently living in. This week in particular has been quite overwhelming with global news updates and community-based advisories as the number of cases continues to grow locally and abroad. I've been getting some requests for cards to document these current events in your Project Life and have this free set of cards for you if you would like to use them.
You can download the ready to print PDF of these cards here.
EDIT: The link has been updated to include individual PNG files of the cards as well as the ready to print PDF.
Finally, the last bit of news I have for you is with regards to the shop. You may have noticed that there is now sales tax on US orders (if your state collects sales tax). Big Cartel (my shop platform) has implemented a Marketplace Facilitator tax update due to recent tax laws and will be calculating, collecting, and remitting sales tax directly to your state. This is a Big Cartel platform-wide change, not an individual shop one and unfortunately I don't have any control over it. I thought it would be best to give you a heads up on this change.
Thank you for checking in and I hope you take care and stay healthy and safe during these uncertain times. Have a good weekend! xo.

Hello hello! January felt like it went on forever, but February flew by and I can't believe we're almost at the end of the month (yay for leap day though!). I've just updated the In a Creative Bubble shop with a brand new release of products, and I'm especially excited about the new Traveler's Notebook sized papers :)
All together, there are eight new products - two TN paper sets, printable elements, two sets of journaling cards, and three coordinating digital stamp sets. While it's a wide variety of products, you'll find they share a similar color scheme though, which allows for easy mixing and matching. All the new products are now in the shop here.
I did want to remind you that this weekend is the last chance to pick up anything in the Last Chance category of the shop, as I need to make room for new 2020 products. Ok, now here's a look at today's release:
Basics No.1 Traveler's Notebook Papers
Let's start off with the TN papers! I'm stoked to introduce these new everyday themed Traveler's Notebook papers. I've been wanting to add more TN sized products to the shop for awhile now, and I thought now was a good time to start. This Basics set is similar to the Recorded journaling card series in that the papers are all black & white and the titles/prompts are meant for everyday documenting. Depending on the response to this set, I hope to continue this series by adding more b&w TN designs to the shop.
Noteworthy Traveler's Notebook Papers
This second set of Traveler's Notebook papers I'm releasing today are also for recording everyday moments, but they skew towards the bright and colorful side. Even if you don't use traveler's notebooks, I think these papers would make great inserts in mini-books or 6x8 albums!
I've also been wanting to add more printable elements to the shop, especially ones that are for everyday stories. Love how this set turned out, and the rainbow patch just might be my favorite. I want to use it on everything.
Noteworthy Digital Stamps
I though a lot of the designs from the Noteworthy and Basics No.1 sets would look great as overlays/digital stamps on photos, so this set has a mix of my personal favorites.
Delicious Journaling Cards
Now onto our regular set of 3x4 and 4x6 journaling cards. It's been a long time since I've made new foodie cards, so I decided to design new ones for the shop. There's a mix of good basics here, as well as a couple of specific food cards (dim sum, noodles, and the fried egg). I'm definitely open to requests for other food as well...let me know if there are anymore specific food cards you'd like to see next! I've got a running list but it would be nice to get feedback on what you want too :)
Delicious Digital Stamps
Family Fun Journaling Cards
Finally, I designed this last set of journaling cards for documenting activities your family enjoys doing together, such as movie nights and game nights. I think they're versatile enough for noting down memories/get togethers with friends as well though, since I only actually used the word 'family' on two of the ten cards. Trying to keep the cards flexible and useful for multiple situations is something I always strive to do when working on these designs.

Hoping you like this hodge podge of new products! I can't wait to use them myself in my own memory keeping. I just got a huge stack of photos printed last week so I can start to catch up on my Project Life album.
As always, thank you so much for your continued support in my shop. I sound like a broken record, but it is truly through your enthusiasm, purchases, and support that I can continue to put out new products each month(-ish, ha). Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
