Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps together!


What a wonderful combination of two companies!  These products fit so very well together!  For my project, I used the Lacey Mixable 8x8 album from Clear scraps along with the Cracklin' Rose Collection from Quick Quotes.   I admit, I have never done one of these albums before this, because I just prefer to work on my 12x12 layouts for my albums.  This was a nice change from the norm and I LOVED DOING IT!

I started with covering my chipboard pages with the paper from Quick Quotes.  I knew that I wanted those completely covered so that I could start my embellishment process.

My cover page of my album is kind of plain when it stands alone... just the work JOLLY and a wreath made from pine-look pipe cleaners.    BUT...when the album is closed, the first page looks gorgeous!  You can see the velum poem peeking through...and the flowers  I love the way the pages together create a masterpiece!

I used the vellum poem "Christmas" and I inked the edges with Limeade Powder Puff Inks.   I tossed in some flowers and leaves to help adorn the page a bit.
I went page by page, adding vellum, inks, flowers, paints and photos.  I chose to use a random assortment of my favorite photos from Christmases past. 
The chipboard 8x8 Christmas tree assortment was one of my favorite additions to my beautiful album!  
Below are the pages of my album....each one different, each one unique. This was truly one of my most favorite projects ever!

By the time I had finished the album, I realized that I had created a masterpiece that I will cherish for years to come!
Thank you for taking time to look at my project today!  Have a wonderful week!

GREAT album! I LOBE the wreath from a pipecleaner! I have 2 of those from when my daughters were in gradeschool as tree ornaments. Maybe I will repurpose them in a scrapbook! Thanks for the idea!

Although I would’ve preferred if you went into a little bit more detail, I still got the gist of what you meant. I agree with it. It might not be a popular idea, but it makes sense. Will definitely come back for more of this. Great work.Good work, wonderful blog… really enjoy it and added it into my social bookmarks. Keep up the good work
