Hi everyone, Gabriela here and this will be my final post as a member of the Quick Quotes Design Team.  It has been a wonderful experience and my privilege to work with such an amazing group of ladies and a fantastic company.  I learned so much this year and really enjoyed having the opportunity to share projects with you every month.  I am stepping down due to schedule constraints but I hope that the new Design Team Members get as much enjoyment from their time as I did.



Today's project is a simple Holiday card that you can make quickly, check out the video below.




I hope you enjoyed the video and I want to say thank you again to the entire Quick Quotes team! Have a wonderful and blessed year everyone!

Hi everyone, Gaby here today with a small project you can do if you are having guests over for the holidays. I made some place cards like this for Thanksgiving and I thought it would be fun to recreate this with a Christmas theme. You can do these in one evening if you prep all of your paper and die cuts beforehand.



Check out the video below for what you'll need to make these.


I hope you enjoyed this video and your are inspired to make your own place cards, until next time, happy crafting.

Pop-Up with Quick Quotes and Lawn Fawn

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a way to showcase your paper patterns and have some fun with stamps or die cuts.  This card is a pop-up inside and has a decorative band holding it closed.


















I am using the Winter Bliss collection and I started by cutting my paper into pieces. I used one 12" x 1" strip, one 5.5" x 4.25" rectangle, a 3" x 3" square and an 8" x 5.5" rectangle. I used a plain white card base.





I stamped my images using my amazing Stamp Perfect tool and used a pop-up die for the inside of the card.



Once I had everything cut out, I adhered my die cuts and stamped the sentiment.
The outside of the card was put together by using a stamp runner on the 5.5" x 4.25" piece and adhering that to the card base. Then the 3" square was stuck on top of that.
Finally, the 12" x 1" strip is what will hold the card closed, it's just a decorative touch.  Place the strip on the front of the card.
Turn the card over.
Fold each edge of the strip towards the center of the card.
Then adhere the ends together to make a band. The finished card will have a very nice look and a fun pop-up inside.


This card is motivational, but any occasion will work; Winter Bliss is my favorite collection right now, but you can use any of the beautiful Quick Quotes collections to make a project like this.  I hope you enjoyed this project and thanks for stopping by.

Make a Mini Album with Quick Quotes, Want2Scrap, and Xyron

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a mini album from Want2Scrap featuring a beautiful new collection from Quick Quotes called Winter Bliss. First, these papers are gorgeous and fun. The colors are great for a winter theme, but I'm sure you will find reasons to use them all year long.




This mini album is shaped like a camera, so I had some fun turning the cover into a shaker window that looks like a real camera, check out the video below.



I also used my Xyron Creative Station to make the adhering the paper easier and neater, this was a fun album to make and I hope it gives you some ideas for a mini of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today and I finally made a page I've been thinking about for a while. I thought it would be fun to make a page with a shaker window, so I tried it out. I used a chipboard cutout from Want2Scrap along with some of their bling and of course paper and ink from Quick Quotes. I scrapped a picture of my husband and I on vacation in New Orleans a few years ago, it's one of my favorite pictures of us and it seemed like a good fit for this page.
