Off the Page with Dana!

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a fun summer themed project featuring the fantastic Be Bold collection. I'm planning on attending many a BBQ this summer and I like to give small hostess gifts to my friends.


I altered a brown bag, turning it into some festive gift packaging that is perfect for the season using several fun pieces from the May Club Q Kit. I also created a fun sunny card from some scraps. The Club Q Kits are a fantastic value and are so fun to work with!


All the pieces that I needed to put together the ribbon/ring handle, sunglasses and chipboard sun were included in one of the May Club Q Layout Kits. When I say 'all the pieces,' that includes the metal hardware as well! I followed the easy assembly directions and then took the embellishments off the page!


The Be Bold 500 patterned paper is full of quotes that will make you smile! I chose this summer sentiment block. I cut the bright yellow flower from the same patterned paper.


I used Maraschino Cherry and Lemonade PowderPuff Chalking Ink to color this chipboard sun. I added dimension to the piece with some adhesive foam and used glaze to add some shine to the sunglasses.

This paper set had me at hello. It is the happiest paper I have seen in a while that just struck me..I haven't used it yet but have my plans to using for our trip to HI in 09. Our daughter was 9, and we were lucky to take my son and his wife and my MIL too. It was something to be immortally memoried in my books. This paper still makes me smile every time I see a project done with it. TY Love the bag. Great idea if I have scraps LOL
