Picture This!

Wow… can you believe that Christmas is just a few short days away?! If you have a hard to buy for person, I have the perfect solution!

All you need as an old picture frame, some Quick Quotes Papers and their brand new Metal Embellishments! 

I started with the orange patterned Paper from the Calypso line and used it to cover the entire frame. I also used some Khaki PowderPuff Chalking ink to distress the edges of the frame. I then took a strip of burlap from one of my QuickQuotes Club Q kits and wrapped it around the bottom of the frame.

 I finished the frame off with a few more sheets of patterned paper and the new metal embellishments from Quick Quotes! A quick and easy gift idea!

The Magic of Christmas

Hello everyone! Happy Friday to you!  Can you believe that we are less than 2 weeks from Christmas?! I was recently going through some of my old Christmas photos and came across this one….

I have made several Christmas layouts in my adventure of being a scrapbooker and looking back at them, most were made with red and green. I thought it would be fun to mix it up a bit and use some non-traditional colors! The Antique Garden 300 paper was perfect for my background!

Quick Quotes is know for their quotes and the Quote Cards are some of my favorite to work with! They always have the perfect quote for every occasion. This quote is from the Sentiments Quote Cards. I added some gold mist that I brushed onto the background to add some sparkle and then used PowderPuff Chalking Inks in Plum Crazy and Purple Passion around the edges!

I love when I can mix up the lines from Quick Quotes and this time I added in some Dusty Road Papers. The tab and word strip on the top of the paper are fussy cut from one of the Dusty Road papers.
