Blog Feature: Bubblegum Life

As promised, our goal is introduce you to some amazing designers, avid crafters, talented folks through this blog.  The introduction will hopefully always include an example of one of their great projects and/or a video tutorial.  Today's blogger feature is the incredibly cute blog of Carrie Elias and Gloria King called Bubblegum Life.  They've been so kind as to let us borrow their latest post for you all!  Check them out!

Thanks for stopping by to see our projects today!  I loved the photos from our last photo prompt so much, that I decided to use some of my favorite scrapbooks papers to create a 12x12 layout.....

Ryan & Ponyo *LOVE*

When I went to make my layout, I really liked how clean the lines looked before I adhered everything together so this ended up being the first layout I've done without sewing in I don't know how long : )  To take advantage of this I mounted my photo onto chipboard so they would have a little bit of lift.  And to add even more depth, there are pop-up foamies under the heart border on the right and also the square love journaler.....

.....So pretty much this layout is most of the items below all layered together in the center of my paper.  And here are all the individual pieces I used (the Hambly Overlay and Prima Pearls are from the lovely Color Me Miki shop).....

This layout ended up being so special to me, that it is now displayed in my living room safely encased (and protected from the doggies) in a black 12x12 photo box : )

I hope you get a chance to make something you love sometime soon <3



And here's Nely's project using the current Pink Ninja Addicts monthly kit named Redemption Song.....



happy project monday!!, when making a layout for this picture, I knew I wanted neutral colors with a pop of color!  All the perfect papers and trims were in the march kit *redemption song* from Pink Ninja Addicts!  I love how the turquoise paper "pops" in the background, and it has a hint a brown to blend in with the background.  It came out simple, but perfect for me!!  hope you have a happy creative day!!

I really like the 2nd layout. Your right that the turquoise paper makes your photo pop. This is a great example of making a cute layout that isn't stuffed with a million things. Thanks for sharing it. I can't wait to show my wife.
