Good Friday! Alicia here today with your Quick Quotes April Challenge! April is a good month to Celebrate!

So, let's Celebrate Easter, Spring, births, or create cards anticipating next month's graduations or Mother's Day. Your entry can include a layout, card or mixed media creation just Celebrate something! I chose to create a layout celebrating my wedding. What better way to celebrate than with the Quick Quotes Celebrate collection! This photo is of me and my mother, whom I also want to celebrate.


Here are some highlights of the layout. I layered some laser die cut flowers on top of the Quick Quotes metal flower. I hid a Cricut cut butterfly under the ribbon. It is hard to tell from the pictures but I created an embossed image on the yellow paper with clear embossing powder and Versamark to give it a subtle texture.


To create the flowers I first colored them with Powder Puff chalking inks, then I folded all the petals. Finally, I put them all together with a brad and chalk the edges again. Folding and creasing the petals gives them so much dimension even though they are flatten again.


Quick Quotes Products:
Die Cuts from Joy Ride 400 paper

Other Products:
Misc Brads and Gems
Cricut Cartridge
Versamark and Judikins Clear Detail Embossing Powder
Misc Flourish Stamp
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see your entries in our Celebration challenge!!

Your layout is wonderful, Alicia. What a beautiful picture of you and your mother on your big day. I love your choice of papers and accents.
