Always Love You with Martha

I will always love you. This is the name I decided on for today´s project, a frame I made for Quick Quotes using some designs from the Alton, Joy Ride and Celebrate Paper Collection, and one of the messages from the Quick Quotes Bundle Family.

I Will Always Love You Frame by Martha Lucia Gomez for Quick Quotes - SIEMPRE TE AMARE

This time, I decided to make the frame using some of the designs on the Cricut Explore, so I used the Artiste Cartridge in the Design Space of Cricut. With it, I made the Doily using the clearest design of the Alton Collection that has some delicate colors and it lends itself marvelously to mix with many other elements. I also made the heart using this cartridge and I cut it on a piece of Celebrate Collection Paper. Realistically, the quality of these papers is excellent to cut on our electronic machines.

The base of my frame was made using the yellow shade from the Joy Ride Paper Collection, and I gave it an additional texture with some polka dots and chevron stencils. I inked the polka dots using the stencil Dots and Stripes from SU with PowerPuff Khaki Chalk Ink from Quick Quotes. And the stencil Simple Chevron from Memory Box with Powerpuff Feather Gray Chalk Ink from Quick Quotes.

The romantic details of my frame were made using lace, canvas flowers, and linen thread. But in reality, the special touch is in the metal flower or Unique Rustic Patina Metal Embellishment from Quick Quotes that has a marvelous size and coordinates perfectly with the message I chose from the Quick Quotes Family Bundle. All of these details were pasted one by one with different heights to give the project more dimension.

I have to tell you that I chose to attach this photo with a decorative clip because when I do frames like these I like to change the photo frequently. This is a tip I would like to share with you today. I hope you enjoy this project and visit us often!!
