Season's Greetings with Quick Quotes

Gabriela SimsComment

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!

Fall Frames Scrapbook Page

Gabriela SimsComment

Hi everyone, Gabriela here with a fun fall themed page. I used the Honeycomb collection and some Chalking inks to create this page. I started by cutting some shapes from the papers and then inking them.

I settled on a picture from a trip to the orchard and decided to journal right on the page, check out the video below.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you try some paper frames!

Misting and Inking with Quick Quotes

Hi everyone, Gabriela here and today I'm doing a scrapbook layout using some paper weaving, misting, and inking.  I am scrapping a photo from Wizard World that includes a very brightly colored monster, so I wasn't afraid to mix patterns and colors here.  I did my misting first and then used a heat tool to help it dry, it will curl a little, but once you have this in a page protector for a few days it will flatten itself.  I'm using cut strips of paper and chalking ink that I thought went with the photo, you could use different collections and colors to get a completely different look, check out the video below.

I think you could change just a few elements on the page and use this layout for lots of occasions/themes.  I hope it inspired you to "lift" this page and gave you another idea for how to use your ink pads, thanks for stopping by.

QuickQuotes - March Club Q

Hello everyone, Gabriela here showcasing this month's Club Q and before I get into my project, let me talk about the greatness of this kit. I received a nice variety of papers and embellishments as well as a package of Petaloo flowers. There was even a set of full instructions for making an Altered project, just a really robust kit with some nice ideas and it was nice to see the paper collections paired in ways I might not have thought of on my own. One of the things I couldn't wait to use was the blinged butterflies, they were wonderful on their own, but I decided to add a little chalking ink to them to make them more visible.

I used chalking inks to color the butterflies and then added glossy accents to "seal" the color in, this requires allowing it to dry overnight, but I think the results were worth the wait. Next I decided to go with a theme of "Love Blooms" for a double page layout.
I proceeded to build my page around my butterflies and flowers and even created a few additional paper flowers to help fill out the pages. I also did some edge punches with the paper to create borders for both sides of the layout.
The finished layout will have pictures from a Botanic Garden tour on the white spaces but you could really put any photos you like in the layout. I hope you have as much fun with your Club Q as I did and happy crafting!

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a layout that has some fun movable parts! I wanted to make a page that was a little bit masculine, but still sweet.

I started by choosing my photos first, since I knew I wanted one main picture and three smaller ones. This page takes a little time and it requires buttons, check out the video below.
