Parade For Pops | Scrapbook Layout Celebrating Dads

Today's project is coming to you in partnership with and their Parade For Pops event. Big thanks to them for the invitation + for sending me a section of their Pops Of Color liquid embellishment to play with and create a project celebrating the Dad's in my life. 

Here's a process video that takes you though the steps of creating this project: 

Here are some additional images of the process + completed project: 

Pops Of Color are fun little bottles of liquid embellishments. You can use them like paint to create backgrounds (like I'll show below) or you can squeeze out a bit, let them dry, and have your own custom colorful dots (dries with dimension). 

For my project I decided to document a couple things I'm thankful for about each of the Dad's in my life. I decided to use the Pops Of Color to create watercolor-ish circle backgrounds that become homes for my story and additional embellishments. 

I started by using a 3.5 inch Circle Punch to create a template from a sheet of cardstock. I laid that template on white cardstock, added a few dots from the Pops Of Color bottles and then used the scraper in a circular manner to create my backgrounds (see video for more detail). After they dried I used a 4 inch Circle Punch to cut them out. 

I seriously love how these turned out. 

At first I contemplated using one of the new 12x12 pattern papers from the Black + White Scrapbook Kit as my background but pivoted and grabbed a couple sheets of this Heidi Swapp pattern paper and cut it down to 7 inches wide x 8.25 inches tall. 

I designed a text circle and printed that on ink jet transparencies. I cut those out by hand using a circle punched using the 4 inch Circle Punch. You can read more about printing on transparencies here

After cutting out the transparent circles I added layered heart stickers on top and create custom 2-inch labels for each of the Dad's in my life. 

After getting all that in order I used a Slick Writer to add a few things I'm thankful about for each Dad (on the painted circle). The transparent circles were adhered using rolling adhesive under the hearts.  

For the title circle I used this fun puffy alpha sticker set from Heidi Swapp. I switched out the "O" in YOU and added a layered heart in it's place. 

Here are a couple close up images:

Again, big thanks to for inviting me to participate! I loved using Pops Of Color as a jumping off point for this project.
