I can't get enough of the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, so I'm really, really glad it's free! (You can see cards I made with Bubbles & Fizz DSP here , here, here, and here.) Yes, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper is free with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, and I made it the key element in my scrapbook pages for February scrapbook club in San Antonio. I love the bright, fresh color palette in Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper and used it as my main source of inspiration for this 2-page layout of 12 x 12 scrapbook pages.
Bubble Over with Happiness is the theme for my 12 x 12 scrapbook pages because I have lots of random pictures of my grandkids smiling and laughing. This layout is perfect for those happy pictures that aren't necessarily about an event or particular day.
1) The color scheme in Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper is gender neutral, so I can put photos of boys and girls on these pages. Lemon Lime Twist is my favorite In Color, and love how it makes everything else pop!
2)I like repeating images/shapes in my designs. Here, I keyed in on circles and used them in the bubbles stamp and die as well as come large punched circles. I find that a repeating image/shape brings cohesion to a scrapbook layout.
3)The bubbles thinlit is one of my favorite parts of the Bottles & Bubbles Framelit Dies. I get 5 varying sizes of circles with one pass through the Big Shot. I used the same thinlit on a card here. I think it's the perfect accent for many, many projects! For my 12 x 12 layout, I used both the bubble thinlit and bubble stamp to keep my circles going.
4)Using many elements from a Stampin' Up! product suite takes the "work" out of scrapbooking. No more endless hunting for products and colors that coordinate/match! Stampin' Up! has perfected product coordination like no other company. Use Stampin' Up! products for your scrapbooking to END frustration and ADD options for customizing and creativity:).
