Sharing the Webster's Pages Love!

I just love working with Webster's Pages!  I wanted to share the layouts I have done recently with Webster's Pages products in digital format :)

Using the In Love collection, currently my favorite collection...who knew?  I love this collection for the obvious uses, Weddings, but it actually works for other things too!  I was able to create a layout about a young crush, 5 year olds, and have it be sort of on the masculine side since it features my young grandson Trevor:

and then here is another using that same collection but this time for my daughter Kari's wedding almost 10 years ago:
I love how I got almost completely different looks from the same collection!!

Moving right along to the Sunday Picnic collection in digital format.  I love the colors with this one and have used it alot, here are a few that I did:
Jenna...just being well.....Jenna!  Love the color combination here and it matches her shirt so well!!
And then here is Trevor, loving his first swim of the season last year....again perfect colors for this photo!!
 One more with Sunday Picnic.....perfect for Easter photos!!

One of the newer collections is called Game On.  I don't have many sports related fact none, but I have successfully used this collection for lots of other things:
This is my Grandson Jeromy and his latest portraits, such a perfect match to the Game On line!!!
And then it worked perfect for Trevor's Preschool Graduation which had a red, white and blue theme!

So there you have it...some Webster's Pages love!!  Are you curious about digital and would like to give it try to see if you enjoy it?  Check out this beginner tutorial I did this month at InspireMe!

thanks for visiting!!

Documenting Disneyland with Quick Quotes!

Hi all....Julie here to share with you a Disneyland layout created with Quick Quotes paper line Summer Samba!! 
I think that these colors are perfect for a layout of a little boy's day at Disneyland, dont you?  I had my Grandson Jeromy here from Arizona for his Spring Break this year, and since his vacation was not the same as my other two grandchildren my mom and I got the chance to take him to Disneyland all on his own....a special day!!
As you can see....he had a great day!!!  This quote from the quotes paper included in this collection could not have been more perfect.  I love when I can find a quote that so matches with the spirit of the layout!  I created a fun little banner as part of the title by cutting strips of paper and using a border punch on each edge then folding it over.  Also the Balloon chipboard was a great addition.  I simply inked the surfaces with the PowderPuff Chalking Ink, then the edges with a darker color and the strings another color and then added some stickles to the surface...they are so rich looking, I love them!!  I adhered them with some pop dots to get some dimension as well.
 Tucking in some punched circles on a border gives the look of a cool scallopped edge. I simply punched the circles, inked the edges and applied stickles to the surface for some fun shine.  I love the journaling blocks that are included with the Quotes sheet, makes life so easy....and I simply added a frame around it by adding a larger piece of paper that was inked to help it show up better.
I hope that you enjoyed my colorful Disneyland layout as much as I did creating it!!

A little Spring Inspiration for ya!

I just love the colors of Spring! Whether its pretty and soft pastels or bright bold colors they are my favorite!!  Quick Quotes has a great paper line called One Fine Day that is perfect for your favorite spring shots:
I had a canvas panel and some squares of chipboard that I received in my Quick Quotes Club Q kit last month and I decided to make a wall hanging with it and my One Fine Day collection, check it out:
I had this sweet little picture of my grandson taken at spring time a few years ago that has long been a favorite and it was a perfect match for this line of papers. I added lots of ink work, gotta love the PowderPuff Chalk Inks, some hand stitching, a great quote, and the beautiful chipboard butterfly by Quick Quotes.


This little wall hanging is going to look great in my turquoise and lime green themed bedroom!
