A little more Quick Quotes inspiration!

Hi all....good Sunday morning to you!!  Julie here to share with you some inspiration from the Club Q kits from Quick Quotes!

I am in love with the deep edge canvas's!  I love that you can decorate the edges as well as the surface and that it can hang or sit on a shelf.  And I am in love with this piece of paper from Quick Quotes from the Tin Type line....I love the color scheme and you cant beat a paper with rays on it....screams summer and beach to me!!
So I started with this paper and a deep edge canvas and this is what I made:

First I used the Quick Quotes PowderPuff ink in Lemonade all over the edges and then went over the corners with PowderPuff ink in Mango Mai Tai.  Then I stamped the swirl pattern with PowderPuff ink in Baja Blue.
I love using this ink!!  It goes on so smooth and so rich!
I crumpled the paper and wet it a little then smoothed it out and applied it to the surface of the the texture it gives.  I inked the Umbrella chipboard with the PowderPuff ink in Tahiti first and then lightly went over it with some Baja Blue.  The frame around the photo was border punched from the back side of the same paper...great way to use scraps and coordinate!  I lightly touched the border pieces with some Tahiti ink as well.

 I hand made the rolled flowers, also from the scraps of the same piece of paper and touched the edges with some more of the Tahiti ink.  The Butterfly chipboard was covered in the Lemonade ink and the edges touched with Mango Mai Tai and then I spread a thin layer of Stickles over the surface.
Added my quote and some twine and I now have a beautiful altered canvas to display...that is if my daughter doesn't steal it, lol!!

In Love by Webster's Pages

My new favorite collection!!!  In Love by Webster's Pages:

Clean & Simple:
My Daughter Kari got married 10 yrs ago in September and this was before digital was so big so we had actual prints....not files.  Somewhere along the 10 year span she had them scanned and put on disc.  When I saw this collection I asked her for the discs.  Its been such fun to look at them again and get to work with them in digital format.  What a good time we had!

This first layout I did captures a fun memory...brings a smile to my face everytime!!

 Before the wedding started the photographer was taking pictures of the girls out in front of the grooms parents house where the wedding was held and the Ice Cream truck came by, her dress and ready for the ceremony, ran out and stopped the truck and got a SpongeBob ice cream!!  None of us had any money so one of the guests arriving for the wedding paid, lol!  We were all terrified she would get it on her dress, she didnt, and it was great fun.  Later this incident was used as a trivia question during the reception..and that guest who paid for the ice cream had the answer, lol!!

My second layout is actually a lift of our Guest Design Team member this month, Carol Monson:

As soon as I saw the Dress motif and the ticket I knew what I was going to do!  I love how the Tiara also is so similar to Kari's!

What a great collection this is and what fun I am having creating with my daughters wedding photos...who knows...if I continue I can make a book for their 10th anniversary!!!

Sharing some Quick Quotes Tin Type - Club Q for March!

Hi all!  Its been a busy few weeks for me and I have had this layout I did with Quick Quotes Club Q for March featuring Tin Type on my mind the entire time and this weekend I finally got the chance to play and create!  I know I say it every time I post but I am majorly in love with the Powder Puff Inks by Quick Quotes, they go on so great, have a wonderful finish and its so easy to blend the colors as well!!  My next love is the new chipboard and when you combine the two it is fantastic!

So I used one of the Club Q kits from March for my layout, which features Tin Type and some Gears from the Bag 'o Chips and of course lots of INK!!!

This layout also features my grandson Jeromy as a toddler....I have loved these pictures forever!  There is nothing like a toddler in a pair of overalls and these were even Levis!!!  I love how the Quick Quotes phrases add so much to the sentiment exactly.

So let me share a little about what I did with this layout.  The main background paper is inked on the edges with both Mango Mai Tai and Green with Envy         Inks.  Just a touch here and there with each gives such depth and color.  The next layer was a full sheet of paper where I cut off an inch on each side and then distressed the edges and inked with Biscotti ink.  The chipboard accents, gears and buckle were very simply inked with Baja Blue, Amaretto, Limeade and Mango Mai Tai ink.  I added some boarder pieces that I punched and inked with Mango Mai Tai ink, and some banners I hand cut and inked with Mango Mai Tai ink as well.  The phrases and photos were added  along with buttons and bakers twine to finish off the look.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and that I have inspired you to grab some Quick Quotes product and create your own layout!!
