Quick Quotes/Xyron Blog Hop

All week long, Quick Quotes is teaming up with Xyron for a blog hop! There will be new projects on each blog all week long! My project is being featured today....

I love Quick Quotes new Halloween papers! The combinations of greens, oranges, purples and black are perfect for all of my Halloween projects!

 This frame was quick and easy to do. After cutting my paper into 2 inch squares, I inked the edges and ran them through my Xyron Create a Sticker Max machine.

From there, all I had to do was position them on the frame, cut off the extra and sand down the edges! Super easy!

And, of course, what is a blog hop without great prizes?! Start at the Quick Quotes Blog and go from there! Have a great day!

Maui Mini Album!

Hello! It's Barb and I am back with one of my all time favorite Quick Quotes lines that happens to be part of the August Club Q kit... Summer Breeze! The supplies in the August Club Q kits are fabulous and if you follow the directions that are sent to you with the supplies, you will make some beautiful projects! However, I wanted to see what I could make if I didn't follow the directions and this mini album was the result!

The patterned paper die cut was included in the kit and was meant to be used with the canvas. I cut the die cut down to fit my 6 in. x 7 in. mini album and inked the edges with PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Tahiti. I used the same ink to color the chipboard flourish and then went around the edges with PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Baja Blue.

 I used foam dots to adhere the chipboard flourish to the cover and to add some dimension.

I wanted to make sure I had some space between my pages so that when the mini was closed, it could lay flat. To achieve that, I added pony beads that were the same color as the cardstock between the pages. The white die cut frames on this page are from the June Club Q kit but the sand dollars and flip flop die cut were right out of the August kit!

How cute is this little flip flop die cut?! It comes in the kit, too. All I did was add a little ribbon, flowers and gems! Darling!

The Summer Breeze papers are perfect for vacation at the beach pictures!

The kit includes block style stencils that spell out the word FUN. I liked the look of the letters but needed them in a different color. To solve my problem, I used them as a stencil on these tags! I love the way they turned out! I used Tahiti PowderPuff Chalking Ink and then outlined them with a black pen.

And here is the final page in the album! Did I mention how much I love the Summer Breeze line?!

The flowers on this page were fussy cut from the patterned paper, inked and pop dotted. I think they are the perfect embellishment for my mini album!

I hope you liked looking at my mini album as much as I enjoyed making it!

A Santa Fe Tradition

Hi there! It's Barb and I am back to share another layout I created with one of Quick Quotes newest paper lines... Just Because! I love everything about this line! The colors are gorgeous and the patterns are so easy to work with! Love, love, love it!!

We recently visited Santa Fe and of course, we had to take a few photos while we were there! All of the photos had a lot of browns and blues in them and the Just Because line had the perfect papers for creating this scrapbook layout!

Quick Quotes makes scrapbooking so easy! With the double sided papers, all I had to do was cut out a few strips and layer them! Everything coordinated perfectly!

All I added to the patterned papers was some Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking Ink along the edges! A perfect match!
