Happy Monday! This week I did a scrapbook layout with Spellbinders Cascade Dots A2 Card Die, yes a scrapbook layout! I wanted to share ways to use this die in a scrapbook layout. I also used Pebbles Chalks for creating the bubbles in the layout.
Before we get started here is a list of supplies I used for my project that are available here at the Cut at Home site:
Other products used from my stash, pink, blue and white card stock, vellum, washi tape and acrylic circles.
This was such a fun project, I took these pictures last weekend while we were blowing bubbles, and I had just gotten the Cascade Dots die, it’s a great die for card fronts, but it reminded me of bubbles so I thought it would be perfect for my layout!
I started with two 12 x12 sheets of pink card stock, next I cut two white and three blue of the Cascade Dots. I trimmed my pictures in length to 5 1/2 inches to match the die cuts. The blue and white I used Bazzill Bling card stock, I like the shimmer of that stock. Next I ran a strip of Washi tape across the top and bottom of one of the pink card stock sheets. Next I arranged the die cuts and photos in an alternating pattern on the page, after I adhered the die cuts and photos I took three more pictures and cut them out with a circle cutter, I adhered those on the die cuts. Finally I made the bubbles for the embellishments. To learn how to make the bubbles see the above video. Here is a look at the finished page:
For the second page I used the pink card stock for the base, next I took two of the pictures and adhered them to the right side of the page, next I ran a strip of Washi tape right along side of the pictures. I knew I wanted to use “Bubbles, Bubbles, Everywhere”, so I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the title. I used a font called “Bubble Font” for the word Bubbles. I also had two other pictures that I wanted to be a focal point, I used the last two die cut pieces one blue, on white, arranged them on the left side of the page, placed one of the pictures offset on the die cut, then used a circle cutter to cut the other picture, I placed that over the other die cut. I adhered everything once I was happy with the arrangement. Finally I created and added more bubbles! Here is a look at the second page:
This was such a fun layout, I really love how the bubbles came out using the vellum and the chalks, one bit of advise for adhering the bubbles once you have them made, if you have a Xyron sticker maker the acrylics will feed through it and it makes it so you cannot see the adhesive. Here is a look at the two pages together:
I hope you enjoyed my project this week, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin!
