Quick Quotes August Club Q


Good morning crafty friends,

Thank you for stopping by today. Today’s project was made using the wonderful, August Club Q kit from Quick Quotes. Every month Quick Quotes produces some wonderful page kits and project kits. They include a variety of their beautiful designer paper and some adorable custom made die cuts as well as some super cute embellishments.

Here are August’s Club Q Kits

The above are the two, double page layouts for the kit and below is a close up of the canvas kit. Absolutely adorable!

Here is my take on the top layout.

closeup of circle and mat
Here is a close up of the circular mattes. I used my Cricut my George and Basic Shapes to cut out the circle and corresponding shadow. The flower was from the club Q kit. I simply “cut it out” of the frame it was in. I used pop dots to give a little lift and a QQ gem for the center. You can also see in this close up shot that I machine stitched the cream background paper to the green background paper.
closeup of large photo matte
Here is a close up of the large photo matte. The ribbon and the loopy border are again from the club Q kit as well as the beautiful designer paper. I did use a Martha Stewart punch to create the borders in the background.


large flower closeup
Here is a close up of one of the large flowers in a frame die cut that is included in the kit. I simply inked it with some Midnight Confessions Chalk Ink and added a QQ gem to the center of each one.

summer title close up
Here is a close up of the “Summer” title. Again, this is from the club Q kit. The die cuts are custom, laser cuts and they pop out of the page beautifully!


dayz closeup
Here is a close up of the “DAYZ” alphas. These are from the new Vintage Alphabet Quote Sheets by QQ. These are the Cherry Truffle Vintage Alphabet Quote Sheet. They all have either quotes or journaling squares attached to them. I trimmed them all down and matted them here. I saved the beautiful quotes for another project :-)


TIP
To utilize my cardstock to the fullest. I will often times cut the “center” of the background piece out. This saves on bulk and cardstock. If you would like a step by step photo tutorial of how I do this: you can click this link: HERE. This will take you to a previous post where I explain this method in detail.

Here is a shot of the back of one of the pages to show you. When done correctly, I have a one inch “frame” and a separate 10x10 piece that I can utilize for mattes.
