New Glasses with Neva!

Welcome Quick Quotes fans to the first day of October!

Neva here to share with you a layout about my son and his first pair of glasses. Not always a momentous occasion but being able to see well is a good thing! 

I combined papers and sayings from several collections to create this page.  I only had one sheet of Harmony 104 left in my stash so I designed the page to maximize the patterns on both sides.


  • The background is Spring Showers 103.
  • The section across the middle of the layout is Harmony 104, it was the best color match to my son's shirt.  It is trimmed to 6" x 12", then the diagonal is trimmed down 1 1/2" on both edges.
  • The edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.

  • Two pieces are trimmed to 1 1/2" x 4 3/4" from Navigator 103 
  • The edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.  
  • The photo is adhered to the diagonal strip.
  • The two pieces of Navigator are adhered behind the photo and the diagonal strip.  Looks like the entire photo is matted doesn't it?
  • The reverse side of Harmony 104 is trimmed to 2" x 6".
  • The edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • The page is laid out to determine the placing of the sections.  
  • Use a straight edge like a ruler to line up the sections to create the illusion of a 7 3/4" x 6" piece of cardstock.  
  • The diagonal section is adhered over the top.   
  • Three sentiments are trimmed from Farmhouse 500 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • Two sections are backed with Navigator 103 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.
  • The remaining saying is backed with Harmony 104 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • I love this saying from Farmhouse 500, which is inked using PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
  • It is backed with  Navigator 103 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.
  • The title is die cut from Navigator 103 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.  I used a brush tip applicator to get in the tight corners of the letters.
  • The journal block is stamped in PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Rusty Nail.  It is edged with PowderPuff Chalk Ink Blue Moon.
  • It is then backed with Harmony 104 and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Blue Moon.
My son enjoys looking at his layouts and declared this one to be fantastic!  I enjoy documenting times like these and little moments in life, don't you?
