I was super excited to be able to visit the CHA trade show and Doodlebug's adorable booth for the first time this past January so I was determined to find a way to take inspiration from their booth and use portholes on my scrapbook page! To do this I created a special cutting file on my Silhouette that I am sharing as a free download HERE.
I cut each porthole once from cardstock and then a slightly smaller version twice from Silhouette's chipboard. It designed extra thin so your machine can handle it so I think glued all the layers together with a glue pen. When I was done I added 12 white mini brads to the provided holes and back it with a circle cut from the beach treasures patterned paper.
I love the depth that little bit of chipboard gives to the scene! I embellished the portholes with icon stickers popped up with foam tape. Doodlebug's new Bubble Sprinkles were the perfect finishing touch!
To balance out my portholes, I added a fun little scene to the bottom, left-hand corner of my layout using the Mermaid Doodlepop and more fun stickers from the icon sticker sheet.
Before I go I thought I would share a couple pictures of Doodlebug's beautiful booth that inspired my page (unfortunately The portholes were on the other interior walls and I didn't get a very good picture). ;)
I had so much fun with this page! I hope I've inspired you to pick up some of this happy collection and create some fun for yourself. ;)
