Our Everyday

My girls and I love bubbles (I should probably include our dog too.)  The girls love them because they are fun.  I love them because they provide loads of lengthly entertainment which I have truly appreciated during this past baseball season during 3 hour games.  Bubbles = Lifesaver.

This means of course, I have lots of bubbly pictures to scrap :).

I began this layout with the intention of using up what I had left over from SC's 6x6 Lemonlush paper pad.

After having gotten over the fear of sewing through chipboard (why did I think it would be so hard??), I now consistently sew down my chipboard alphas.  Which is great, because they were always the ones I would find down at the bottom of the page protector :).


  1. Thanks for the post. I love this layout. Do you have any tips for sewing on paper and/or chipboard? I love the look, but have only ever handstitched. My thread always broke on my sewing machine. Recently I purchased thicker/stronger thread. Maybe that will do the trick... not sure...

    1. Hi Gabi! Handstitching is great too, even though I will admit that I often shy away from it because it takes me forever :). I use machine quilting 100% cotton thread. The only time I have ever had thread break was when I used some fancy, shiny thread--it was to fragile I think. Maybe that will help? Take care.

  2. This is fabulous!! I LOVE sewing through my alphas for the same reason!! They were always the first things to all of the page :( What a sweet bubble layout xox
