July Q Club


I designed these projects from the July Q Club supplies: I make several projects with the supplies,

Here is a 12 X 12 Double layout with a festive center piece.





Then I created several cards







The sentiments are Quick Quotes Itty Bitty Box of quotes  and from from my stash.

The last project I created is a star box with star coasters

 I layered several layers of papers to create a sturdy coaster, I punched out a star in the center of each star to expose the patterned paper beneath, then glossy accents was then added to the center star.  Each coaster was distressed on the edges with powderpuff chalking ink..

 The top of the box lid was also distressed with powder puff Royal Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink. 

Supplies Used:

Quick Quotes Q Club 
2017  Royal Navy PowderPuff Chalking Ink
2016 Berry Jam PowderPuff Chalking Ink

Cherish and Relax Cards

Hi, Kathi here to share with you today two cards, I started out with a red and navy blue card stock, cut the base using a step card die.  I then put my Quick Quotes patterned paper through the die cut to cut out the patterned paper in the same manner slimming it down to show the colored card stock.



 Card 1
Card base is a red card stock layered with Quick Quotes patterned paper Earth Wind Fire QQP-EW105 on the right side and the lower front with QQP-EW107 on the upper left section.
Card 2 is a navy blue card stock I layered a star over the upper left using pop dots to raise it up then layered part of the sentiment over and around the star and on the lower part of the card.
Both cards where then finished the  by cutting out the larger sentiments placing the sentiment on the right. Each of the pieces of paper that was layered on the  card was first distressed on the edges using Royal Blue or Berry Jam Powderpuff Chalking Inks.
