Just Because with Liz Kennedy

Hello again, Liz here today to share my second project with Quick Quotes!

If you have been watching the new releases from Quick Quotes, you have seen this wonderful line called "Just Because". I love that there are so many bright colors in this paper!

The Starburst paper really stuck in my head so I knew I had to do something with it.  I took 2 of the same starburst paper and used half of each so that I had 2 "corners" where the burst starts from. I wanted to make it look like the star-burst was coming from the side of the paper instead of at the bottom as the paper was designed.


I inked everything in Mango Mai Tai and added it to a orange 12x12 paper from my stash. The lime green mat behind this picture (of me and my boyfriend from our Chicago trip a couple weeks ago. We are infront of the "bean" at Millennium Park) is also one of the papers from the Just Because line.


These are Quick Quotes Fun Flowers that I actually took out of another page kit I had on hand from Quick Quotes (Summer Time) so they were white to start with, but you can get just the chipboard flowers too. I colored them with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Ink in (from right to left) Maraschino Cherry, Blue Hawaiian, Mango Mai Tai, Very Berry and Limeade.


This vellum "Fabulous Vacation" was just perfect. I layered it to an element from the Just Because line and added a glittered chipboard bracket, also from Quick Quotes. You can see the other part of it on the left side of my pictured. I inked everything in Mai Tai.


For my last element, I took a circle and wrapped it in stripes of a velum quote. I inked it with Very Berry, Blue Hawaiian and Mango Mai Tai to match the page. The ribbon is also from the Summer Time kit I opened earlier. I layered it to more of the lime green paper and added my notes. I plan on making a second page for this layout that will have more journaling.

I hope you enjoyed my take on "Just Because"!
