The Design Team has been fortunate to receive some beautiful new Summer Samba papers, vellums and coordinating sentiments to work with, along with their Spellbinders products!

-------------------------

Happy Thursday to you from Michelle! Today I am sharing my projects done with the NEW Summer Samba Line being released in just a few short weeks at CHA. This paper is sure to warm you up and get you in the mood for hot summer beach (or pool!) days. My first project is a layout that I made using pictures from 2010 (FINALLY The perfect paper showed up!).

I used an exacto knife to cut around the large flowers in the lower right corner so that I could tuck my large photo behind them. I used my WONDERFUL Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut my photo and photo mat with the Curved Rectangle Nestabilities Die Set and I added the yellow embellishments using dies from the Square Petal Box Set. The "Fabulous Vacation" sentiment is part of a word sheet that is being released with the Quick Quotes Summer Samba paper line. I used a Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalk Ink and added Thickers (American Crafts).


I LOVE this paper line and couldn't stop with just one project (again!) so here is a card that I made;

I made this card using the Surf's Up Shapeabilities set from Spellbinders. The card base measures 4 1/" x 5 1/2" and I cut the shapes fromthe die set and then embossed them (Just TWO passes through the Grand Calibur!). Isn't the detail WONDERFUL?! For the "Warm Hello" I used a Tag from the Grommet Tags set and I stamped the sentiment using Blue Moon Chalk Ink and a Fiskars Stamp. I also added Bling brads from My Mind's Eye.

And a third project to share, a small box that I made using a Grand Template set, Square Bracket Edge Box. The papers I used for the box were what was left over after making the card.
I die cut the papers to make the box and the flowers are from the same set. I again used the Grommet Tags die to add to the top of the box and once I fill it with a treat, I will use twine to keep it closed.


Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share!
~ Michelle

Hi everyone, Theresa here with another CHA preview to share with you! It makes me all warm and makes me think of Summer which is kind of crazy when it's supposed to be Winter right now! Well I don't know about you but we've had a pretty mild winter in my neck of the woods with only one day of snow so far. Don't get me wrong, I like the snow but I'm not a big fan of driving in it, LOL!



Well I have a layout to share with you today! This is using the new release from Quick Quotes called Summer Samba! And like I said before it reminds me of Summer! Love the bright cheery colors and I just had to add the cute pictures of my little man on his first trip to the beach! I also used my Spellbinders Grand Caliber Die Cutting Machine and of course some Spellbinder Dies! The ones I used on this project are, Sprightly Sprockets, Labels Four SM, Classic Scalloped Circles LG, and Dahlia.






For some added dimension I fussy cut the flowers on the QQ Summer Samba paper and popped it after inking it with QQ Powderpuff Blue Hawaiian Chalk Ink for added depth.



For my Banner I used one of my Spellbinder Labels Four SM Die and folded them over a piece of blue and white twine, added a flower and of course can't forget the bling!





Now what do you think of my Sun!? I made it with 3 different dies! The yellow is Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets, Red is Spellbinders Lg Scalloped Circles and the New QQ Vellum Quote is cut with the Dahlia Die, inked with QQ Blue Hawaiian Chalk Ink, another flower and a touch of bling.



And here's a close up of the fussy cut Summer Samba papers popped and some added bling.


Hope you liked the new QQ Summer Samba papers and are making plans on what your going to be making with them once they are released! Hope I've inspired you and look forward to see what you create.


Extras used were minimal: Bling: Hobby Lobby, Flowers: Prima, Twine: Lily (Sugar N Cream) & Pop Dots.


Have a Great Day!

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa
