Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps Hop - Day 3

Clear Scraps and Quick Quotes Blog Hop!
~ Day 3 ~

Welcome to a week long BLOG HOP with amazing inspiration not only from the Quick Quotes Design Team but also from the Clear Scraps Design Team as well!  

Our companies have partnered to bring you a fun filled week of projects and prizes, all you have to do is be sure to visit each of our blogs this week and leave a comment to win.  Easy, right?

There are five prizes, one per day!!!


Quick Quotes has joined together with Clear Scraps and I received some awesome products from Clear Scraps to work with!  

I have always been so impressed with the quality of the acrylic from Clear Scraps and was thrilled to have the opportunity to do a cross promotion with Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps. One of the products I received was the Mixable Cassy 8x8 Acrylic Album. I thought this would work well together with the Quick Quotes Cracklin' Rose line.

I covered all the acrylic pages in the album with the Cracklin' Rose papers, inked the edges on the lighter papers.  The cover I used some Prima and Petaloo flowers, misted with Radiant Rain from Creative Imaginations.

Here I've used the Cracklin Rose 500 to add some tags and flip pages on
the Clear Scraps pages

here is page three of the flip detail

The photos are from a dear customer, who showed them to me at a workshop and gave me some copies to scrapbook, I thought this would be great gift for her that she can give to a loved one this holiday season.  I left enough space so that she could add some of her own touches and journalling to the album.
I added a 4x6 canvas page to the album

detail shot of the canvas page.

The word Family is also from Clear Scraps, I flipped it over and added some Alcohol Inks to it 
(Expresso and Current)

The next page I added an envelope pocket, with a photo tag inside

Page with the photo tag out.

The Quick Quotes Die Cut Tree for the last page, I cut in half, and the branches I cut off are used throughout the album as flourishes tucked in behind flowers.

I really enjoyed working with the Clear Scraps and hope I have inspired you to create some holiday projects today!

I have a fun card with folding doors to share with you today!  I used one of the as the card base.  I covered the acrylic base with Quick Quotes Summer Breeze Paperline.  I then added two paper flowers to the front of the card and small dots of paint around the scallops.

On the inside of the card I added more paper, a stamped sentiment, ribbon and two lines of bling!  I finished off the card with more dots of paint on each of the flaps of the card.
