Birthday Blog Hop

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Today’s post is the card that I’ve provided to my design team for the Design Team Birthday Blog Hop 7/30-7/31.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with a standard blog hop - a long list of blogs, and you hop from one to the other leaving comments...

Well, this one has a twist. This should be a super efficient hop for you.

We’re linking up design team blogs instead of the individual bloggers blogs... So you only have to make 8 hops, and you’ll get to see 57 cards! If you’re interested, go directly to the start at:


There is some great blog candy to be had!!!Here’s my card! I hope you hop along with us!
The card was made from the July Club Q at Quick Quotes. I also used purple passion powderpuff chalk ink. The sentiment is a rub on from American Crafts. I also added liquid pearls to the chipboard butterfly.
Thanks and enjoy!

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.

Round and Round Fun

I used Harmonie cardstock, pattern paper, chipboard, and brads on this layout. The layout was inspired from sketch 51 at sketchabilities. My daughter was enjoying herself at the fair going round and round on a ride. It was so fun to watch her antics!

More July Quick Quotes Club Q and Sassy Lil' Sketches

As I posted earlier Quick Quotes has a gorgeous Club Q kit for July...these kits are so versatile. They come with ideas for making pages. but I decided to repurpose the kit to show that you can do more with the kits.
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.
