Inspire Me Saturday + A Giveaway


Inspire Me Saturday!

Wow, do we have some Quick Quotes inspiration for you today!!!

Marcia here with a layout to share with you using the new Stowaway collection. It's perfect for staycation photos too...


Yes, this is me jumping out of a plane! I still can't believe I did it either. 

My sister was celebrating her 50th birthday and my son was celebrating his 18th. I was originally only going to take pictures of them, but there was a member of the party that backed out. No refunds given, as they have these wonderful instructors who still need to be paid. So, I took his place.

While vacationing in Cancun (many years ago) I really wanted to go parasailing, but I was 6 months pregnant and no one would take me. I figured skydiving was probably the next best thing. The itty bitty box of travel quotes had the perfect quote for this layout too.

Well, now I can say "What a Ride!"

Stowaway papers (100, 200, 300, 400)

Hello friends!  Jan here today to share some new release inspiration with you!

I'm having more fun with Quick Quotes, Cracklin Rose and Itty Bitty, Heritage Vellum Quotes!

I bought this wooden jewelry box at a thrift store for $2.00 and decided to upcycle it!  I removed the piece on the right that held necklaces, and the small piece in the drawer that held rings.  I coused Cracklin Rose on the drawer fronts and on the wood.  I happened to see these vintage gloves while thrifting and thought they would be a perfect addition to my heritage piece.

Tanisha here with another project featuring Just Because.

I used one of the vellum quotes from the Itty Bitty Box (Babies/Family) and a present from the Birthday Gift 8x10 Chipboard set to create a beautiful embellishment that makes this card pop!

I inked the chipboard piece with Marachino Cherry PowderPuff Chalking Ink, then coated it with glossy accents and micro beads and allowed to dry.  I adhered the vellum quote to JB200 and then adhered it behind the present.  I finished off the present with a button, twine, and a tiny tag.



Here's a close up of the present.


Thanks for stopping by... I hope you have enjoyed all of the inspiration posted thus far!!
