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.
