QQ Project–Blessings

Good morning crafty friends,


Hope you’re having a wonderful day and getting ready for a wonderful weekend! I wanted to share a project I made today with Quick Quotes products.


Here is my project.

I love that if you look closely the paper already has some “words” on it that lend itself beautifully to the layout. Notice the Believe at the top right corner as well as the miracle & wonder on the bottom left? Fabulous, subtle touches! The quote on the bottom left is from the Babies, Kids & Family Itty BItty Box from Quick Quotes.

Here is a close up of the flowers and the apple flourish.

Layout Recipe
The Apples are from the: Celebrate With Flourishes Cartridge
The Blessings Title is from the: Inspired Hearts Cartridge
The Flowers are from the: Groovy Times Cartridge. I cut them at two different sizes for a total of four different sizes.
QQ Product Used
Midnight Confessions Powder Puff Chalk Ink pad to ink the edges of the apples and the flowers.

Other Products Used
Bazzill Black Cardstock
MS Border Punch
EK Corner Punch

Design Notes:
After inking the flowers, I curled the petals to give them a dimensional look. I used the QQ designer paper for the flowers. The weight of the paper makes cutting them out super easy and helps the flowers retain their altered shape.

I used some pearlescent chalks from Pebbles Inc. to brush over the apples. It gives them a very soft shimmer that the photos just didn’t capture too well.

The layout format came from our last challenge  at Quick Quotes. While the challenge is over, collecting layout sketches and reusing them and flipping them is a great way to work on projects.
