Sweet Bubbles - Ruby Rock-It Creative Team

When I saw the gorgeous Blush Floral paper in the new Bella papers I felt I had found the perfect paper to start a little kit for scrapping some photos taken of my granddaughter at a wedding earlier this year.  So I pulled together a kit to suit creating a few layouts that consisted of the Blush range, PL197 Pink Lady Montage, Francheville Cards & Envelopes in Pastel, Francheville Mini White Doilies, Distress Mini Ink in Vintage Violet and as I hadn't decided which photos to use I also included Distress Mini Ink in Salty Ocean to work with the photo that includes my daughter as she had blue hair at the time.

I decided to prepare everything first.
I cut what cards I wanted from THE654 Blush Quarters and PL197 Pink Lady Montage, so I would know what I would have left over from Blush Quarters.
Then I used my Silhouette Curio to cut the floral frame from the card that is second from the right on the middle row of Blush Quarters, the champagne bottle & glasses and some bits from the Botanicals range.  I then fussy cut flowers from THE Blush Floral.

I then went through my embellishment stash and grabbed out some lace, chipboard, flowers and a Charms Creations Heart along with a pack of Francheville Mini White Doilies.

Using my Curio I cut the word Bubbles and some other items from some Francheville Cards & Envelopes in Pastel.
I matted all my photos that I was trying to decide between so they would be ready to grab and go.
I then punched out some lacey borders from the card scraps and made some flowers from the card scraps.

To make my flowers I punch out a assortment of flowers from the cardstock scraps with some old flower punches I have in my stash and I inked the edges, the pink flowers I inked with Vintage Violet and the Blue with Salty Ocean.


I shaped them with a ball tool and a scrap of foam.

For my flower centres I grabbed out my Just Beat It SB15 Glass Seed Beads in Rose and JBX84 Round Brass Beads in Silver as I love using glass and metal beads for flower centres, they are a more archival option and they give you a gorgeous result.

I simply put a drop of Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive into the centre of each flower and then placed my beads into the glue, if they needed adjusting I just used my pokey tool to move them.

I was now ready to scrap.
I worked out my photo positions and glued them together.
I split 2 of the 3x4 cards from THE654 Blush Quarters in half to create layers that extended both sides of my photo stack and then glued them to my photos.
And then I trimmed a section of Blush Quarters that I had decided not to use the cards from and glued it along the bottom.
This is how my stack looks from the back, so you can see how I trimmed out the middle of my matts and cut the cards.

This square photo is popped up with 4 layers of cardstock scraps to give it some lift.

This 3x4 card was perfect for representing the bubbly fun my granddaughter was having.

I also cut up a doily to poke in around my layout to add some lacey texture.

And I stamped my white cardstock with a bubble stamp from my stash in Distress Ink Vintage Violet.

Here you can see the other 3x4 card that I chose for this layout.  I felt this card also added to the bubbly fun of the page.

For these big gorgeous florals I put layers of cardstock scraps behind them, the main one has 4 layers and the on near the page edge has 2 layers.
I then used some Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots on the smaller parts to give them lift to.

I added some leaves from the Botanicals paper to the bottom right corner to sort of pull the florals into the corner and added some of them throughout the main section of the layout.

For my title I decided to use this Sweet chipboard from Memorymaze combined with the Bubbles that I had die cut from a pink card from Francheville Cards & Envelopes in Pastel.
I base coated it with Gesso and then coloured it with Distress Ink in Vintage Violet.

I love how this project turned out.  The floral colours in THE Blush Floral were perfect for these photos of my Granddaughter as they matches her dress so well.
Now to scrap my next layout with this little kit I have put together.
