Scraptastic Club Eloise Kits: Backyard Bubbles Together

I am loving the bright, bold colors in Scraptastic Club's Eloise kits from April 2016. The kits feature a lot of Amy Tangerine's Better Together collection, which I love! I recently took a favorite  photo of my daughter in our backyard blowing bubbles, and the colors in the photo worked perfectly with this kit. Not to mention, that I'm pretty sure that Kaitlin Sheaffer, who designs the exclusive patterns for Scraptastic, must have peeked into my photos to create the perfect pattern for me!

Supplies | Eloise Kit, Eloise add-on (sold out), Cherry Pie stamp set, Eloise stamp set, Eloise digital files.

As soon as I saw the blue and teal bubble pattern, I knew that I wanted to scrap this photo. I lined up the pattern on the left side of my 8-1/2" x 11" background pattern, also a Scraptastic Exclusive, and then cut out three bubbles to place along the right side.

On the negative space in my photo, I had to use one of the sentiments from the Cherry Pie stamp set, and to the right of it, I placed my main embellishment grouping. I loved the Better Together clear stickers fro the main kit, and backed one on cardstock to place at the edge of my photo. 

I also couldn't resist stamping and watercoloring the cute little house from the Eloise stamp set. At this stage, my layout was only blue and teal, but painting that little door pink gave me just the pop I needed and prompted me to add a couple more spots of pink. 

By cutting "together" from the "better together" clear sticker, I added another spot of pink and the second word for my title. The word "bubbles" was cut from my Silhouette Cameo.

What fun kits these are to play with! On Saturday, I will have another layout and video tutorial up on the Scraptastic Club blog, so be sure to watch for that! Thanks for stopping by!
