Mini May-nia with Donna!

Happy May to you!  We have a really fun treat for you here on the blog during the month of May.  Quick Quotes has four all new wire bound albums that are sized 6x8. The design team will be showcasing these for you.  To kick off the party, Donna is here today to show you the "Be Bold" album.

Attention all beach lovers! Surf's up with the new Quick Quotes 6x8 Be Bold mini album! This month the design team is featuring four new mini albums. Quick Quotes has a fabulous variety of mini albums, that are ready for you to put in your pictures, but when you start embellishing them, it really brings out your personality, besides just being a lot of fun to do!

The "Be Bold" album has colors that are so bright and colorful, you are going to love it! On the cover I added some bright ribbon to the wire binding. Since this was going to be about a trip to beach, I added a Ranger Memory Capsule. Throughout the album I used the Be Bold - 6x6 Paper Pad which of course compliments the album perfectly!


As you can see, from the Be Bold paper stack I found the saying "Paradise Found" which I placed behind the capsule. I used the Quick Quotes PowderPuff Blue Hawaiian, Maraschino Cherry and Lemonade inks to color the some of shells, and it worked out great! It is so much fun to experiment with the PowderPuff Chalk Inks, you just never know how useful they can be in your projects.

 
Here are some of my favorite pages. As you can see I used the paper stack to make colorful yellow frames for the pictures and found some nice quotes as well. As you can see I liked coloring the shells so much it was used throughout my mini album.  I also used sand mixed with Elmer's glue to create a border on with some shells. 

 
There are so many fun quotes and sayings to find in the paper packs! 


This next page I think is my favorite. I used a large bottle cap to make a kind of shadowbox. the netting from the Dollar Store I bought for Halloween but never used. I some beach die cuts I found laying around  in my stash. I did find out the more I dabbed the shells into the PowderPuff Chalk Ink pad the darker it became. The red and the yellow really pop.


The wave border I found in my stash, was a great way to add a journaling card and a quote, simply  adhere only the bottom of the waves. The Quick Quotes chipboard also is a good compliment to add to your mini album.  Below, I used the coordinating "Be Bold" chipboard phrase Good Times.

If you love these bold colors as much as we do, or if you simply just love the beach, you'll want to check out the entire Be Bold collection!
