Sweet Moments with Dana

Hi Quick Quotes fans!

I hope you are all enjoying Summer! Dana here today sharing a layout I put together with some of my favorite Quick Quotes supplies to celebrate a warm weather pastime that our family tries to do at least once a year -- strawberry picking!

I mixed patterned papers from the Beautiful Life and Baggage Claim collections for this layout. I also incorporated a citrus slice from the May 2013 Club Q Mini Album Kit. The green and yellow color of this embellishment gave me a great pop of color and added interest to my design.

I used a vellum sentiment from the Sentiments Quote Bundle as the title for this page.

Designer Tip: Use embellishments from your stash as templates to create coordinating embellishments to match your projects.

I wanted to add a larger embellishment to this page but didn't have anything on hand that matched with my photos or paper. To solve this problem I used a paper bow from my stash as a template to create a bow to coordinate with my page.

Making the bow got me in the mood to create more handmade decorations for my layout. I used large adhesive circles, fabric and felt to make strawberries.

To make my page a little more fun, I finished with some doodling. I think the black lines and white polka dots help to convey the fun that goes along with a trip to the strawberry patch.
