Design Team Creations (Aug Club Q - Cherry Truffle)

Ready to be inspired....

Each month our Design Team is challenged to take the items in the Monthly Club Q Kit and completely redesign it for your viewing pleasure. Stacy (owner/Club Q designer) does an amazing job with these kits already, and provides all Club Q members with color photos and directions. Now you have even more options of what to create with your goodies.

ADORA - Summer Beachin'
Adora says - I love the color contrast in this kit, I thought it was perfect match for this picture of my daughter and grandson. The bright background makes the photo pop, and show the serenity and calmness of the moment.

Items Used: August Club Q Page Kit, Martha Stewart Scoring board tool - to create the rosette, QQ Frosted Flowers, QQ Powder Puff Chalking Ink - Blue Hawaiian, Heidi Swapp - Plastic Alpha

Tips/Techniques: Adora says - How to create the folded ribbon: First I cut a strip of card stock, about an inch or smaller. (To the size of my photo as shown). Then I used hot glue gun to attached ribbon on the card stock strip with uneven folds as a go along. Then I cut the card stock so that only folded ribbon will show. Then added it to my layout. Of course sewing or glue dots will work too! :)


JULIE - "Love"

Items Used: August Club Q kit, Cherry Truffle Vintage Alphabet, Making Memories brads

Description/tips/techniques: Julie says - Time to complete: 20 min. Difficulty Level: easy. I like to mat my photos on light cardstock when they are placed on dark pattern paper. I think this helps them to stand out a little more. I love to use premade borders in not so obvious places. Here I used the border pieces to the left of the photo. I also put a small strip below the alphabet and a small strip below the photo. Remember borders do not have to cover the whole bottom area of something.
