Hey guys! This is Laura Craigie here today with a fun challenge for you!
Speech bubbles are one of my favorite trends, i just think they are ridiculously cute! October Afternoon has some great products with them, and the new Daily Flash line is no exception.
The idea for my first card started from the telephone "Memory card", and I knew I wanted to use the speech bubble above it not for the sentiment which is the obvious choice, but to cut out some hearts and make a window card. Then I added a label sticker below the telephone to ground the sentiment for the card. I wanted the heart windows to stand out a bit more, so I adhered polkadot paper to the inside of the card.
I began sorting through my various papers, prepared to cut a lot of speech bubbles from various sheets, when i came across this journal card "there is always something to smile about" and an idea was born. I decided to use that journal card as my starting point an alter a notebook to be used by my daughter as a journal. I knew the Travel Girl line had the cute umbrella "smile" sticker, so I decided to use the journal card and sticker as my focal and create speech bubbles all over the page that could also "feel like rain"
