Quick Quotes Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the QQ Design Team Blog Hop.

I created 2 projects for today.  The first project is a card where I combined the Cherry Truffle papers & French Quarter papers to create a friendship card.  

My second project for today started off as a packaged layout kit from Quick Quotes - 'Simple Joys'.  I put my own spin on it and here is my finished project.  The layout had many more flowers but since I was tailoring it to be a boys page, I removed some of the flowers and I added some hardware embellishments like the brads & photo anchors.  I used an acrylic stamp to add the word 'months.'  All of the distressing was done with the QQ powderpuff chalking inks (a must-have scrapping supply).

 I created my tag to be an interactive piece.  This way I could journal about Ethan's milestones at 8 months old.  I am creating his 1 year album and am trying to keep up the best I can.  The rest of his album can be found in the tab at the top called 'Ethan's 1st Year Album'.
Thanks for stopping by. =)

To win the DAY 3 prize (Just Jackson papers & 2 inks):
#1 leave a comment at all stops for today
#2 check back at the QQ blog on Wed 11/30 when the winners will be announced

Life's Music (Nolan & Grandpa)

"Life's Music"
I love these pics of my son with grandpa playing the guitar. Music was always a part of my childhood and I love that my dad is now sharing that with my son as well. This page features the new QQ line "Copper Kettle". All items on this page were included in the Monthly Kit Club for Nov except for the frosted flourishes in the corner.

'Pumpkin Time'

LISA - 'Pumpkin Time'
Featuring 'Copper Kettle' QQ papers. We picked out our pumpkin fairly late in the season and I am glad we did. I am loving these photos with the new papers, so my procrastination with pumpkin picking must have been meant to be ;) I combined pieces of the altered art kit of the month, with the page kit to create my double page layout. I punched my own holes in the large black frame to add some pops of ribbon. I chalked my 'T-I-M-E' chipboard title in Mocha Mama chalking ink. I love the mix of papers, vellum, quotes & brads that were included in the Nov Club Q pack. (PS - the pumpkin diecuts are from the Oct Club Q kit.)
