Quick Quotes has released some fabulous new products and one of my favorites are these wonderful mini albums! Some of the collections have the mini albums that match directly with the line and Be Bold is one of them!
The cover is already so beautiful! All I did was add a little ribbon.
Quick Quotes mini albums have these beautiful pages inside. The paper coordinates with the Be Bold line and since they already look amazing, I really didn't have to do much decorating myself!
The Sentiment and Journal spot were both cut from the Be Bold 6x6 Paper Stack. These were the perfect embellishment to many of my pages!
I wanted you to see the page before I added my photos. It's bright and colorful! Perfect for vacation photos.
And here is the page after the photos and a few embellishments!
Do you ever have one of those moments when you are using an everyday item and you realize that you could turn it into a great scrapbooking/card embellishment?! Well, I did! The other day, while making coffee, I decided that the coffee filter was the perfect material for a flower! I am going to show you how you can make your own flowers using coffee filters and Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Ink!
I absolutely adore the Stowaway collection! The blues and browns are gorgeous and is perfect for so many types of photos! This time I used it for some photos of my parents with my kids in Sedona.
Guess what!!! It's Friday!! Don't you love the sound of that?! And we all know what that means.... Frosted Designs has a new challenge for you! This week is a 2 parter!
1. You need to use doilies and
2. You need to use the sketch that our very own Design Team Member Brenshevia designed!
Here is the sketch....
And here is my layout....
Now, I know what you may be saying to yourself... is this really the sketch? And where did the doilies go?! Well... both are there!! I promise! I think the best part of a sketch is that you can make it your own and I have to say, even though I deviated from the sketch a bit, this is one of my favorite layouts!
I layered some My Mind's Eye die cuts with some Basic Grey chipboard. Under all that, is the doily I created. I started out by painting white paint on the background. I then laid two doilies on the background paper where I wanted them and used them as a mask. I misted them with some pink Shimmer Mist. They didn't show up quite the way I wanted so I decided to use a white paint pen to color the doily shape in and then outlined it with a black Copic pen. I LOVE the way they turned out! They were a lot of work, but totally worth it! :)
This film strip chipboard was perfect for the photos from last year's Hollywood Showcase. Lauren's acting school in Dallas puts it on each year. Lauren will not get to participate this year since we moved to Phoenix but she is going back to support all of her friends next weekend. She is soooo excited to see all of them!
And here is a close up of the doily in the top corner. I used a date sticker from Echo Park to help document the year!

Hello! It's Barb and I am back to share another layout with you! I have been going through some of my older photos and have been working on getting them onto layouts finally! After all, my little man in this photo is now 20 years old! It's probably time!!
I used Echo Park papers for this layout. I loved the primary colors and bold prints!
This Toy Box CANDi was the perfect embellishment to go with all of my stars!
This week, our Design Team from Frosted Designs is going on a journey! We are challenging you to a Travel theme! We would like to see how you use the Travel theme on a card, layout or off the page project! Here is a quick layout I put together about a recent trip to Los Angeles....
There is a great shopping center at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. & Highland where you can get a great view of the Hollywood Sign. I know it is hard to see in this small photo but it is in the background!
We would love to see what you create! And by playing along, you could win this amazing prize....

And would you like to know the best part about this collection? All of the coordinating embellishments! Check out this layout....
The surfboard patterned paper was perfect for scrapbooking my son's surfing adventures in Maui! I used Kiwi Lane's Paisley Place Mini Templates 1A & 1B to create the "waves" under the photos. I used the brand new Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalking Ink around the edges of all the patterned papers.
I used the 6x6 Be Bold paper pads to cut out the journal spot and poem.
This chipboard sticker is found in the Be Bold Chipboard Stickers collection. I inked the edges with the new Coconut PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
The surfboards were fussy cut from a sheet of patterned paper and then I used the new PowderPuff Chalking in in Red Hot to ink the edges of the surfboards.
I also have a video to share with you that showcases the products I used on this layout.
Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a layout I made using some older photos! My little girl turned 11 last week... crazy how fast they grow up! Anyway, these photos of her with her cousin were just too cute not to scrap!!
I used some Basic Grey and Pink Paislee papers to make this layout.
The Coffee Bean CANDi was perfect for the centers of the flowers!
I love that CANDi comes in so many colors and patterns! They are perfect for any layout!
