Family Matters with Barb!

Happy Friday Quick Quotes friends!  I don't mean to brag, but... I have the BEST brother in the whole, wide, world!! Seriously, I do!

My brother came to visit me last week and we had a wonderful time! Greg (my brother) constantly wears a smile, is always super positive and strikes up a conversation with everyone he meets! Since he is such a special person, I wanted to create a special layout for him and the Stowaway Line was perfect!

The blues and browns in the Stowaway collection are perfect for so many different themes. I added a burlap flower to make it a little more masculine.

I love the look of vellum quotes on a layout but sometimes I think it is tricky to adhere them without seeing the adhesive. I wanted to try something different so I decided to stitch this one on. This vellum quote came from the Quick Quotes Family Bundle.

I love that the Quick Quotes Bundles not only have quotes in them, but they also have journal spots. This journal spot is from the Inspire Bundle.

Attaching a vellum quote is so easy. Here is a video tutorial to show you how I did it!
