Kiwi Lane and Stowaway with Donna!

Top of the morning to all! Donna here today to host the Quick Quotes blog for you.

Today I made this layout using the new Quick Quotes Stowaway Line. It was so much fun to work with and using the new Kiwi Lane Templates really helped me along in the design on my layout. Check out Kiwi Lane, they have all sorts of awesome templates that can be used in so many ways, not just layouts. I added a four leaf clover metal to this layout not only because it is St. Patty's Day, but both of these cousins are half Irish! They are a couple of handsome boys, if I do say so myself.

Here is the final layout, below I have a couple of tips I hope will be useful to you. I used bubble wrap and Quick Quotes ink. The Quick Quotes ink work great with bubble wrap and a lot easier than how I use to do it with paint. First I used the all new PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Coconut, but I wanted a little extra pop, so I added Java Ink on top and it really brought out the white.

I also used Quick Quotes new Java PowderPuff Chalk Ink to distress my edges of all the pieces. To distress the flags I found a good way to get into those corners is to bend the flag in half slightly and rub your PowderPuff Chalk Ink on the edges to distress them.
