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.
