Quick Quotes September Kit

Quick Quotes September kit is just gorgeous. I have the privilege of being on the design team. Each month I get to rework the kits to show their versatility. Here is the first layout I came up with.

QQ Products Used:
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.

Here is an image of the Kit and ideas you can do with the kit:

Fun and Simple Card

This card was inspired by sketch 232 at CPS. I combined the sketch challenge with an embossing challenge at Casual Fridays. The papers and stamps are from the EIEIO collection from TaDa Creative Studios. I also used a Tim Holtz embossing folder.

Forever Friends Card Quick Quotes

QQ Products Used:
Live Out Loud collection
Live Out Loud 100 paper

Live Out Loud 400 paper
Orange Dot sheer ribbon
Blue Hawaiian PowderPuff chalk ink

Beacon 3-in-1 glue

This is an easy card that can be used to send a sweet message to a friend. It is good to have a supply of these types of cards ready made.

Ink the edges of all the papers
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.
Use the Beacon 3-in-1 glue to avoid wrinkles in the pages.

Book Bag Key Chain Album

I made this for my daughter to attach to her school book bag. That way she can take us with her to school. If her book bag gets lost it will also help the finder identify who it belongs to by the id tag.

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.
