Inspiration Friday + A Giveaway!

Marcia here today to help host the Quick Quotes blog with some layout inspiration.

I used the One Fine Day collection and balloon chipboard to create this layout of my son at 5 months old.

The vellum makes the perfect title for my layout. The balloon chipboard was finished with white crackle paint and Mango Mai Tai PowderPuff Chalk Ink.  I even used the chalk ink to accent my ducks and help them blend better into the color scheme.

Happy Friday!!!

Rhonda here to share a page that I created with pieces from the June Club Q kit.  It featured our Summer Samba and had such bright and fun colors!!!  These photos are of our youngest last year when he was 2.  They grow so so fast!!!

The kit included so many super cool die cut shapes to work with!  I used the white scalloped square die cut and I cut an end to layer under my papers. I also cut the sun apart from one of the provided cuts and thought it would be fun to layer over the yellow here.  I embellished it with a flourish acetate piece and a wooden button from my stash.

I absolutely LOVE our Frosted Flourishes!  They add such a nice soft feel to a project and can help show some movement.  To add to the fun here I attached my yellow paper with a few segments of zig zag stitching.

The Itty Bitty Vellum quote that I used here felt just perfect for the page!  I used a scrap piece of black card stock and a rectangle Spellbinders die to create a very simple frame.  The black coordinated nicely with my photo mats.

Hi everyone!  Tanisha here on this beautiful Friday to share a project with you.

Don't you just love it when you can take a piece of a pre-made scrapbooking item and make it your own?   That's exactly what I did with this piece of vellum from Quick Quotes.  I cut the revelevant paragraph from it, adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from the One Fine Day collection and created this beautiful card.  I added a couple of naked chipboard pieces from the Bag O Chips Stackable Flowers for a little neutral balance.

Thanks for stopping by today!!


Don't forget!  There's a giveaway going on!!!
