"Bubbles in Bed"

This was a super fun LO to do! (Special thanks goes out to my bud, Michelle, for showing me how to do the bubble technique!)

PP is from Prima, Journaling was again printed on DS PP, I cut the title from SCAL using a font called "Inspiration." The bubbles were cut from transparency paper using my Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook cart). I cut the scroll frame using the Storybook cart. I got the poem off the internet, but ended up modifying it a bit for my needs.

Here's the bubble technique -in Michelle's words! :o)

"I inked the edges [of the bubbles] with white ink and used the eye shadow applicator to make the highlight. I let it dry for a few then used that powder [it is an irridescent pearl-ex type powder]. Then just be careful not to touch it. I used the liquid glue pen [ZIG ball point glue pen] and traced the edges and voila it shoud stick to your page."

(The only thing I did different was use a white paint pen to make my highlights stick out a bit more. For the white ink on the edges, I used the Staz-On Opaque stamp pad in Cotton White.)


  1. The bubbles look amazing! Thanks for the instructions. I love the title font that you used. Great job as always!

  2. Super cute! That font you used for the bubble title is sooooo adorable.
