Cracklin' Rose Sneak Peek with Karan!

New Release Sneak Peeks!!!  

We have some very special projects coming to you in July featuring our all new releases!!!  Trust me, you don't want to miss any of these, so be sure to stop by every day!!!


Greetings all!  Karan here to kick off July for you here on the blog today.

When I received my Design Team box from Quick Quotes that would contain new summer releases, I couldn't believe my eyes!  I was sent the Cracklin' Rose line and oh my gosh... it was right up my alley (I'm sure they knew that) ha! 

I was so excited to dig in.  After going through the itty bitty heritage vellum quotes, I found one that said, "In loving memory".  I was led to create a memory piece of my mom, who I recently lost in February.  This new line Cracklin' Rose line is just incredible.  

It's so very versatile as the rest of my projects for the month of July will show, but for this one, being I'm the first Designer to post for July, with a brand new release, I really wanted to make this one special!

I started off with a memory box from Graphic 45 and the new Cracklin' Rose line from Quick Quotes.  I felt I needed to make this very flowery, as there are some beautiful images of roses on the papers, so I blended some prima flowers for added detail. 

Quick Quotes laser cut chipboard butterflies are fab, and I love how they ink up so beautifully! 
The rhinestone ribbon, came in my box too, I love it!

The colours in this line remind me of vintage, and some
black and white photos were perfect!

Album view at a glance from the back.  Yeah that's what I said when I saw the line too!! I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work with it, its now one of my favorites, move over Cherry Truffle!!! :) :)

I wanted to make sure I could still close the album.  I had to really change things for the inside and I actually had to remove some embellies as it wasn't closing for me. 

All those tags contain vellum verses from Hertiage Itty Bitty Vellum Quotes that I felt were my thoughts exactly and I wanted to use them in the project.  I hope one of your favorites will be Cracklin Rose and it is now, one of mine!
