Hello Summer Card with Quick Quotes

Hello and welcome!

I have a yummy, fun card project for you featuring Quick Quotes' Secret Garden collection.

Nothing screams summer more at our house than ice cream. Even the neighborhood ice cream truck makes a special trip to stop right in front our driveway each Tuesday evening! That was the inspiration for this card:


Here is the step-by-step:
  • Adhere a 5.5 x 4.25 inch Secret Garden 101 to a card base.
  • Mat 4 x 5 inch white cardstock with the red side of Secret Garden 103. Edge with Tropical Punch PowderPuff Chalking Ink and add silver thread.
  • To get the waffle cone texture, brown cardstock was stamped with Kokomo PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
  • The ice cream was die cut from the stripes of Secret Garden 103, edged with Tropical Punch or Aqua PowderPuff Chalking Inks and coated with Glossy Accents.
  • The sentiment was die cut from black cardstock, layered three times and coated with Glossy Accents.
  • The cute scalloped border was cut from the green side of Secret Garden 101 and edged with Aqua PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
 
Hope you are inspired to create something bright and beautiful with the Secret Garden collection.

Reasons To Smile Layout

Hello and Welcome!

As a family we are a bunch of homebodies and really enjoy just hanging out together. Here we are celebrating Valentine's Day.


The background of this layout started with black cardstock and rows of hearts were die cut from it. As I was inspired by the colorfulness of the inspirational photo on the Creative Embellishments blog, I backed the hearts with Jillibean Soup's Bold Brilliance pattern paper.

The elegant title is chipboard from Creative Embellishments. I applied Hero Arts white ink to it for a softer look.


The fun chipboard frame and hearts are also by Creative Embellishments. I used several coats of Ranger's Silver Embossing powder on the hearts to create a reflective shine.


The hidden journaling is on the tag behind the photo and is decorated with washi tape. The decorative borders were made with a punch by Martha Stewart. To finish off the page, reflective gold gems were added.

College Bound Mini Album with Quick Quotes

Hello and Welcome!

My son will be a High School Senior this fall, so this summer we have been traveling all over the Midwest doing college tours. There were so many schools and so much to remember, I thought it would be great to do a mini album to keep track of things. I used April's Club Q Premier Altered Kit, but changed the papers to better fit my son's adventures.


Being on the road, it worked well to have the Club Q Kit with everything together. I just added adhesive, stickers, PowderPuff Chalking Inks and photos!


I love the fun interactive tag elements, and they allow for a lot of extra journaling space. Complete and easy to follow directions for creating this album come with the kit.


The album was super easy to assemble and only took 30 mins, as everything is pre-cut and pre-scored! I was stopped multiple times by women wondering how they could get this kit. (You can order yours here!)


I used papers from the Spring Showers (102, 103) and Navigator (101, 104) collections (which are different than the ones in the kit) and edged them with Terra Cotta and Bermuda PowderPuff Chalking Inks.


Black cardstock photo mats and decorative borders punched from Spring Showers 101 (edged with Bermuda PowderPuff Chalking Ink) were added to each page to tie the project together.


 

I hope you've enjoyed getting a glimpse into our fun adventures and got a few ideas to create your own Club Q mini album.

Nashville Vacation with Quick Quotes

Hello and Welcome!

We recently took a trip to Nashville, Tennessee and visited President Andrew Jackson's estate. It was amazing!  The Red, White and Blue colors of July's Club Q worked perfectly with this Presidential theme. I used the July Club Q Americana Premier Page Kit. As most of the pieces are pre-cut and included in the kit this page came together super fast!


Here is the step-by-step:
  • I started with white 12 x 12 cardstock and added the pre-cut blue strips, edged with Capri Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink to the top and bottom.
  • The white star border, backed with red paper and edged with Capri Blue Ink, was then added on the top and bottom.
 
  • Two decorative borders were created with a border punch from the red pattern paper in the kit. It was then edged with Barn Board PowderPuff Chalking Ink and adhered to the page.
 
  • Photos were matted with white cardstock and blue pattern paper from the kit, then edged with  Capri Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink. The cute star frame and tags are in the kit too.
 
  • I colored the stars with Capri Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink and added them behind the photos.
 
  • Finally the photos, tags, stars, gold brads and title were adhered.

Gotta Catch Them All

Hello and Welcome!

My family and I love to play the AR scavenger hunt game, Pokemon Go. We all have fun playing it together and it gets us outside exploring. Plus we meet all kinds of great people, who play, wherever we go.  This page is about some of our many adventures:


This page is based on the Jump Start Sketch from The Scrap Room. I used Authentique pattern papers.


For the title, I used Thickers by American Crafts.


The shiny flair brads are by My Minds Eye. The fun diecut scribble circles are by Simon Says Stamp (Circle Loops).

Celebrate Cards With July Club Q

Hello and Welcome!


Today I have 4 Red, White and Blue cards bursting with fun and created with July's Club Q Altered Project kit! This kit is designed to make a cute wall hanging, but I decided to make cards instead. These cards are also very versatile. With the celebrate sentiment and great color scheme, you can use them for birthdays, anniversaries or any occasion you celebrate!



It was easy to make these cards as most of the pieces are pre-cut. All of the the pattern papers, chipboard stars, star frames, tags and brads come with the Club Q kit. I just added a white card base, silver thread, gold glitter paper and "celebrate" diecut.


All of the pattern papers were edged with Barn Board or Capri Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks. For this card, I only added the card base, sentiment and gold confetti diecuts and "happy" stamp.  Everything else is included in the kit. Don't you just love that cute, little starred tag?


For this card I only added the card base, cat stamp and gold confetti. Even the wide tan ribbon is in the Club Q kit.


For this last card, I used the fun Club Q star tags and just added a card base, sentiment diecut and gold confetti.

Red, White and Blue with Quick Quotes

Hello, welcome and happy 4th of July!

Today's page is bursting with the red, white and blue colors of our NEW July Club Q kit!



For a different idea, this page was created from the Small Altered Project July Club Q kit. As most of the pieces are pre-cut, this layout came together quickly! The only things added were Thickers and navy and white cardstock.




I love the cute Club Q starred frames. They were prefect for little photos of my friend and I goofing around trying on a few fun hats in the gift shop.



All of the papers were edged with Barn Board or Capri Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks. The decorative white borders were created from white cardstock and a border punch.



The wide tan ribbon and fabulous buttons add great texture to the layout and are included in the kit! I also added zigzag machine stitching.
