September Trend Challenge: Speech Bubbles

While these comic book-inspired shapes aren’t new to the scrapbooking world, they are trending big time in the September kit – Hello Hello! Both the Dear Lizzy Documentary and Crate Paper Wonder collections feature these cute bubbles and I had to make them the focus of our new monthly TREND challenge! The challenge is simple – incorporate a speech bubble (or two, or many!) into the design of a layout. I asked creative team member Jamie to start us off with some trendy inspiration:

Not only did Jamie use speech bubbles as an element on her page, but she also used them as a prompt for the topic of her page. Scrapping her favorite podcasts is a great way to document something she enjoys doing, and those speech bubbles really get her message across.

I love that one particular podcast uses a speech bubble as a design element in their logo! That couldn’t have played into the challenge any better!
