CHA Sneak: One Fine Day - Melin

Good morning crafty friends, it's Melinda here hosting the blog today!

I am sharing my two projects showcasing the new Quick Quotes One Fine Day paper and embellishment line. It will be debuting along with the other new lines we will showcase at CHA.

Along with the fabulous new Quick Quotes lines, we are also showcasing the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and dies this month.  Each of the Designers were sent a Grand Calibur Machine and some dies to play with. Thank you Spellbinders!

Here is my first project. I created this box and love bug using several spellbinders dies. The bottom and top are from the square petal top box Spellbinders die set. I used paper from the French Quarter Quick Quotes paper line. I saw the original idea from one of the Spellbinders Design Team members.

I used another piece of paper from the Sumer Samba paper line from Quick Quotes. You cut the piece of paper to 8.5 inches and then scored it at 2.5 inches.

Here are the additional Spellbinders dies that I used to create the little love bug. I really wanted to create something “different” with my dies.
For the body, I trimmed one of the larger pink ovals and then trimmed the two ribbons down. I adhered them to the black body and then trimmed and inked them with some Maraschino Cherry Chalk Ink.
I assembled the rest of the love bug and used some additional chalks and white gel pen to add some finishing touches.
Here is a side view showing the paper panels from the One Fine Day Paper Line.

I used the following products


Quick Quotes Products
French Quarter Paper for the base and top
Summer Samba Paper
Other Products
Dry Decorator chalk
White gel pen, black fine tip pen
Trimmer and scorer
Various adhesives.

Here is my second project. I created this layout using nothing but Spellbinders dies and more of the beautiful One Fine Day paper.
Here are the dies I used to create the little Giraffe. Once again I really wanted to think outside the box with the dies.
Here is the finished Giraffe.

Here is the completed Lamb. Unfortunately I didn’t take a photo of the pieces separately.
Here is a pretty medallion die I used and layered it with a die from the Sprocket set and one of the cute little medallions from the square petal top box die.
Here is a close up of the frame.
