Trifecta of Inspiration with June!

Hello Quick Quotes fans, June here today hosting the blog!

When I scrapbook, sometimes I need a lot of pages done fast (but still beautiful) and other times I like to take my time playing with lots of materials. Today's post shows 1 layout 3 different ways using Quick Quotes' Far and Away collection.

Design 1: I love how Quick Quotes' papers have done all the background work for us. The Far and Away 101 paper provides beautiful layered designs on the edges, open space in the middle for photos and even a title! Just add photos and journaling! Fast and beautiful.

Design 2: Kicking the design up a notch, the photos were clustered, matted with white cardstock and edged with Deep Sea PowderPuff Chalking Ink. Far and Away 104, edged with Deep Sea PowderPuff Chalking Ink, was added to the background to anchor the photos and provide color. An embellishment cut from Far and Away Quotes and Phrases and a title were also added.

Design 3: It can be fun bringing in many more embellishments and textures. Here, embellishments cut from Far and Away Quotes and Phraes and edged with Deep Sea or Terra Cotta PowderPuff Chalking Ink were added in three places around the page forming a visual triangle. Decorative borders punched from Far and Away 101 and edged with Terra Cotta PowderPuff Chalking Ink were layered in for texture. Circular embellishments were adhered behind the title for interest. The journaling was moved to a tag and tucked behind a photo. Ribbon, foam squares and machine stitching the banners provided more texture and depth.

All three of these designs are wonderful, it just comes down to which style you like and how much time you have to create. The important thing is that you are documenting your lovely memories and enjoying the process!

Happy crafting!
