Sweet 16 Layout - Quick Quotes Design Team Debut

Hello and thanks for stopping by. It's June here and I am so excited to be joining you here today. I'm one of the new faces on the Quick Quotes blog. Joining the Quick Quotes Design Team is like a dream come true!!!

Today I am sharing a fun layout, made with Quick Quotes beautiful new Mulberry collection, about my son's 16th birthday.  I started with the Mulberry white MB100 (edged with Midnight Confessions Powder Puff Chalk Ink), added blue splatters (made with Caribbean Blue Powder Puff Chalk Ink & water) and matted it with MB103.

To jazz up the title, diecut stars cut from MB100  (edged with Buttercup Powder Puff Chalk Ink) were glued to the background. The title letters were diecut from MB105 and the "16" is shadowed with Mulberry stripes MB105. The letters were also outlined with a black pen. The quote from Sheer Joy SJ500 is matted with blue gems added.


The "cake" was made with strips of MB101 & MB103 (edged with Caribbean Blue Powder Puff Chalk Ink) and matted with MB105.  The entire cake is popped up with Foam Squares to add dimension and accommodate the straws. I added the "celebrate" strip from Sheer Joy SJ600  and made it into a banner by putting white flags on the sides.

I attached the colorful Quick Quote straws to the back of the photo. The flames are hand cut from MB100 blended with Buttercup Powder Puff Chalk Ink and colored with a red marker & orange Stickles, and glued on top of the straws to make "candles."

To balance out the design, I added the journaling banner on top, matted with MB105 and machined stitched.
