Spring Inspiration with Karan!

Happy Spring Scrappers!  Karan here with you to host the blog today.

We are sharing some Spring ideas here with you at Quick Quotes this week and this is a mini album I wanted to share with you using the One Fine Day collection

The base of my album is a Melissa Frances Tag Album. 
I used corrugated cardboard and adhered it to the front cover of the album.  Painted it using Deco Art Vintage White, also painted the 4x8 tag.  The tag was designed as a mini page, and I used this as the detail for the cover.  

I used One Fine Day 200, and One Fine Day 100 to create the cover on the tag.and I hand cut some of the larger flowers from One Fine Day 100 and popped them using foam adhesive
side profile of the thickness of the Spring Album. Each Tag Page was painted using Deco Art Vintage White. to coordinate with the One Fine Day Line.
this is how the album looks laid flat.
I love Quick Quotes Frosted Butterflies and felt it was perfect for this Spring Project
I punched out scallop circles in various sizes in the One Fine Day collection and used Biscotti Chalk Ink to add colour to the edges of the scallops to match the Vintage White paint.  Some Twinery Twine adds a nice touch to the clear button.

Designer Details:---Pages 1 and 2
I had cut out the flowers from  One Fine Day 400-added a vellum quote to a tag from the itty bitty quotes-Boys collection.  Using Tim Holtz bird cage die.  Tiny buttons were added to the center of the flowers and a Star Dust pen finished off some details.
Page 3 and 4
Scallop punches in various sizes were used to create the flower, a vellum quote was added to the small office tag.  Page 4-i hand cut out some of the larger flowers from, One Fine Day 100-and the reverse of the page a star dust pen was used to add some detail to the flowers.  The vellum quote Family matches this page perfectly!

Page 5 and 6

Flowers were hand cut from-One fine Day-small buttons where added to the center of the flowers. Itty Bitty Vellum Quotes were used on both pages. I punched out a butterfly from One Fine Day 300-reverse, added some twinery twine to a maya road mini spool and adhered to the butterlfy using 3n1 from beacon. Ek Success five petal flower punch and a 1" circle punched created the flower on page 6.

Flowers were cut from One Fine Day 400, a vellum quote from itty bitty boys was adhered to a tag,
