Stowaway Collection with Kate!

Hi! Kate here, sharing my first Quick Quotes video with you today.

Using Quick Quotes new Stowaway Collection I created a sweet layout that needed just a bit more color and texture.  In my video I share with you one of my favorite ways to add texture and color in a quick, effective, and fun way using a piece of solid paper from the Stowaway 6x6 paper pad and PowderPuff Chalking Ink!



My finished layout will look lovely hanging on the wall or a nice addition to a family scrapbook.


A close-up picture of the embossed mat I created for under the photo:

Quick Quotes Supplies:

Other Supplies:

I hope you have enjoyed my instructional video and you are inspired to add a little color and texture your layouts or card using this technique.  

Have a lovely day!
