June Club Q with Christine!

Hi Quick Quotes fans!

Christine here today to share with you my first project using a Club Q kit.  This is the first time I've gotten to play with a Club Q kit and I absolutely loved it.  If you are a big fan of die cuts and coordinated items this is the place for you!

I loved all the frame options available to use for journaling, photos, etc.  I decided to use the square scallop sets to frame my photos for this layout.  I also used some of the tags that were intended for a mini album to ground my whole layout.  I inked those up and then used my heat embosser to set the ink so I could use them quicker.  

My yellow scalloped borders were meant to be medallion flowers and I decided to use them just as a plain border but I cut between the scallops creating a fringe look.

For my second layout I cut out the Summer Time from a die cut included in the kits and made it into a banner.  I used lots more of the flower die cuts and popped those up with foam dots.  In keeping with the banner idea I cut out a couple of my own from the ribbon and papers to ground my journalling.  

I again used  the "meant to be a medallion flower" strip to make a border and added a piece of vellum atop that with a matching scallop border.  You can see I used lots of threes in this layout: three sets of scallops, sets of three flowers, three different banners.  It is amazing how the number three always blends together so nicely in layouts. 

I hope you've enjoyed these bonus layouts today as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Great layouts! I would have never thought to use the "meant to be a medallion flower" strip as anything other than a medallion flower! Thanks for opening my eyes and thinking outside the box!
