Quick Quotes & Petaloo (a match made in flower heaven)

Altered Box & Card
I created this card with the Julie Je t'amie papers, QQ chalking ink in Tahiti & Purple passion, and Petaloo flowers. I used my Grand Caliber machine by Spellbinders to cut & emboss my 'happy birthday' tag.

I just bought a new flat iron and decided to keep the box it came in and alter it. Right now it is storing my other flowers but I may use it as a gift box for an upcoming birthday. This was created with Julie Je T'amie Quick Quotes papers & Tahiti chalking ink. Then I finished it off with 'gorgeous' Petaloo flowers and ribbon.

Check out the Quick Quotes blog for more great projects.

'Happiness' Altered mini canvas

I fell in love with the B&W papers in this Teresa Collins collection for theOct Club Q. I gave my canvas a fun pop of color by using QQ Chalking ink in Tahiti & Radiant Rain shimmer mist in 'teal.' I loved how QQ owner, Stacy, designed the altered kit to include a shadow box. That inspired me to take it one step further and actually cut a hole in the front of my canvas. 

These are pics from the Palm Springs Private Reserve and I printed them on site using the Canon Selphy printer. It was my first time trying it and I must say that it was 'FABULOUS.' You could print a whole 4x6 or even print up to 8 pictures on one 4x6 sheet. I am always trying to find ways to print small photos and this let me do it on the spot without a computer.
I lined the hole of the canvas with a white ribbon that I inked in Tahiti. This picture also shows some of the misting on the canvas.

'Thankful' layout

This layout was created using the Oct Quick Quotes CLUB Q kit of the month.  They partnered with Teresa Collins this month so that's what papers you see below.  Her new papers scream fall and I'm loving it.

This picture captures one of the many precious moments between my two boys.  Nolan is loving and gentle with his baby brother.  I couldn't ask for them to have a better relationship at this point.

I distressed the edges of my orange paper and added a pull out tag for journaling beneath my picture.

This was created for the FRIDAY CHALLENGE #5 - use a single pic - over at the Quick Quotes blog.  Challenge is open from 10/7-10/19 :)

New mini album using Crate Paper

I have really been into making mini-albums lately.  I love this paper line by Crate Paper.

The album and papers came together as a kit from the Button Farm but then I did my own thing and put my own spin on it :)
