I loaded my mat with papers from the Wonder and Wishes collection. I used the brown and dots paper to actually hold the gift card. For the base/holder of the gift card I used the red poinsettia paper. My Silhouette does the hard work of cutting them out for me. I inked the edges with red ink. I wrapped Doodlebug twine around the gift card holder and added a chipboard tag as well. Here is my finished gift card holder.

It is challenge time on the Quick Quotes blog. It is a simple and useful challenge! The challenge is to create a tag to use this season. If you do not celebrate Christmas, you can create a gift tag to use.
I created this ornament gift tag using the Quick Quotes December Club Q kit and a digital image that I cut on my Silhouette. It is a 3-D ornament tag. I inked the edges with amaretto powderpuff chalk ink. I also adhered some pearls from the kit to give it a little something extra. Be sure to get your entry linked on the Quick Quotes blog for a chance at a great prize.

I inked the edges of the present. I also used torn paper to add texture to my layout. To create my ribbon, I just tied a know. The smaller ribbon was done the same way. I used stickles on my present as well as below the ric rac. I also placed some stickle dots in some of the dots of the background pattern paper.
The 3-in-1 Beacon glue is great for adhering chipboard to paper. I used a little on the back of the larger bow as well. I love the strength of this glue.
QQ Products Used:

With Christmas around the corner I chose to do a festive layout using only supplies from Quick Quotes November Club Q. I mounted the quote behind a black cardstock frame. I love the burgundy vellum with the music notes. The brads add a splash of color as well.
This is the last design team member stop for the day. Head on back to the Quick Quotes blog. Be sure you left a comment on each of the design team members' blogs as well as the main Quick Quotes blog.

September Club Q
Midnight Confessions PowderPuff chalk ink
3 in 1 Beacon glue
I used the inside pieces of the diecut leaves and border to embellish around my journaling strips. I cut the long vellum quote into 3 sections, mounted them on cardstock, and then inked the edges. The 3-in-1 Beacon glue is great for adhering the strip of gems.
I adhered the black mats and the photos onto the red pattern paper. Everything else was adhered right on top of the transparency. I kept them as 2 different sheets and just slid them both into my page protector.

Adhere the quote to orange cardstock. Then tear out a space on the front of the base of the card. Adhere the quote under the tear so it is peaking through.

This challenge was perfect for me. August 9th I will be celebrating my 14th year anniversary. I decided to make a mini album for my husband. I used the August Club Q page kit and the August Canvas kit for my album. These kits come with detailed instructions on how to make pages and the Canvas mini album, however, I re purposed the kits to make my own version. These kits are so versatile. You can recreate their ideas or create your own like I did. The front and back covers of my album are canvas pieces. The inside is accordion style like the Canvas kit explains. I put pictures of myself and our 2 girls on the inside pages. There are pockets with tags on the opposite sides of each picture. On my tag I wrote a personal message to my husband. I then wrote on each of the girls tags traits that they each have that came from their Dad.
For the back of my album, I inked the edges and stamped my thumbprints into a heart shape.
Materials for my album: August Club Q page and Canvas kits, Quick Quotes powderpuff inks Mocha Mama, and Maraschino Cherry, October Afternoon mini stickers, and American Craft thickers.

Here are a couple of projects I have done using the Savvy Davvy paper collection. I love the bright bold colors of this collection. It just screams summer fun to me!
I made this album to take with me on my vacation. All the inside pages are 6x6 so I could journal while on vacation and then just add my photos when I returned. I inked a hand print of each of my girls so I would remember just what size they were. The powderpuff inks are perfect for this. They are stamped on canvas and make up the back page. The front cover is canvas as well. This was part of the June Club Q.
I also created this fun summer layout with the Savvy Davvy collection.
You can tell I love to use inks and distress my edges. Quick Quotes inks are so rich and full of color. They are perfect for inking those edges.
Thanks so much for visiting. I have loved sharing a little of my style and some of my Quick Quotes creations with you.

Here is another layout that I made with the kit. Everything is from the kit except for the Quick Quotes Mocha Mama and Very Berry powderpuff chalk inks. I also used Bazzill cardstock and some espresso pearls on the chipboard butterfly. I just love the large doily that comes with the kit. I cut the center out and put the dark brown cardstock behind it. I added a few of the purple gems to accent it as well. The design was inspired by the July 7th sketch at Sassy Lil Sketches.
