Joy Clair and Quick Quotes Promotion!

Friday greetings to you! Today is day five of the Quick Quotes promotion and giveaway with Joy Clair this week. I am up on the blog along with June Swart featuring the lovely Joy Clair stamps and of course Quick Quotes products.

Today I have a Traveler's Journal that I created using the new and gorgeous papers called Serenade, PowderPuff Chalk Inks, Joy Clair stamps and of course some mixed media and a few extra goodies.

For the cover, I am featuring the Uh Oh Ink Splatters stamps by Joy Clair, you can see the larger splatter on the lower left corner using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink and the petite splatter dots in the upper left.

This set of stamps is so versatile, I just love the extra interest they add here!

For the binding, I adhered some paper doily that I inked with Sky Blue, then Mod Podged to the binding to soften the look of my Journal. I was inspired by Susie Bentz's idea to use a flair to accent the spine so I found some coordinating ribbon and added a little bow.

To create the lines on my signature page inserts, I used my Canon Pixma iP8720 and Microsoft Word.
  • Create a new word document
  • Adjusted margins to 8.25 wide x 8.50 high
  • Created two columns and tabbed down to type several lines using double spacing in the paragraph. 
  • Copy and paste the lines in the next column so they are even.
  • Changed color of underline to a coordinating ink color for my paper. Here I used a blue.
  • Print and repeat for any additional signature pages you wish to have some journaling lines on.

Create word document and sized to 8.25 wide x 8.50 high.
Verify your margins and adjust as needed. I made mine .75
Orientation is Portrait. 
Inserted two columns, format spacing to double space.
Type in your lines as desired.

When completed, print your document.

For this printer, place paper right side up, adjust the paper guides to fit your custom paper size.

Final result. I like to mark my measurements lightly on the page and erase when done so I don't get confused with orientation. Once I had my signature pages with lines created, I added additional stamping and interest using my PowderPuff Chalk Inks and my Joy Clair stamps.

Travel Journal featuring BoBunny Down By The Sea

Crafty greetings to you! It's time for a bit of fun with mixed media and BoBunny today. I've created a Travel Journal featuring the Down By The Sea collection.

This travel journal features Gold Confetti Paste, Stamping, Stencils with Silver Glitter Paste, Pearlescents and some Pentart 3D Balls make an appearance as well. The coordinating accents include Chipboard, Noteworthy and some of the DoubleDot Jewels for accent.

I love the subtle sparkle that the Gold Confetti Paste adds. I also stamped lightly and then splattered a touch of Gold Glimmer Spray. To color the Pentart 3D Balls, they were placed into a small zipper plastic baggie, added a tiny amount of Chocolate and Sugar Pearlescents and rolled them until I had the color I wanted. I then laid them out to dry.

The finishing touches were some drops of Pearlescents added here and there to create more texture. They were also placed into the cheese cloth. I hope you've enjoyed my little travel journal.

Summer Fun

Happy Tuesday to you! I have a project to share with you featuring pieces from the June Club Q kits by Quick Quotes and using my fabulous Canon Pixma IP8720 Printer.


I recently had the opportunity to go to a crop and grabbed the June Club Q kits that I had and my 2017 PowderPuff Chalk Inks along with my photo collage that I printed out in advance.


I cut apart a few of the die cut elements and layered them in a grid pattern as a focal point for my collage photo. I liked the way the layered frames mimic the pattern and design of the collage. Using the die cut pieces from the kit made assembly of this page super quick and easy!


For the die cut title in the kit, I applied some Bora Bora PowderPuff Chalk Ink to tint it a bit darker. Once it dried, I added some Wink of Stella to just the bottom part of the title to give it a reflective appearance. 


I created my photo collage using my Canon Pixma IP8720 printer and their My Image Garden software. It was super easy to do and I really like being able to use multiple photos in a single print. I used the Travel and Leisure 3 template from the software.

Weekend Adventures with BoBunny

Saturday greetings to you! I have a project to share with you today that I recently created for BoBunny featuring one of their newest collections, "Weekend Adventures".

BoBunny One Layout Three Ways featuring Weekend Adventures and Pentart Stencil Paste designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

This project post is known as "1 Layout 3 Ways", I will share a page in three varying degrees of difficulty. The Weekend Adventures collection has such a fun array of patterns and designs to it as you will soon see.

The image above is a very basic design or "Level 1" that you can create using just the pattern papers in the collection along with some Noteworthy pieces. I did a bit of cut work for the oval layer with the floral that allows me to tuck my photo within.

Level 2, building in a few more pieces into the collage here, I have now included some chipboard elements and additional sentiments while keeping the rest of the design mixed media free. (Level 1 and Level 2 exclude any mixed media.)

Level 3, I worked in a few base pattern paper layers and added some Stamping, Glimmer Spray splatters along with a bit of Stencils and Pentart Stencil Paste. A variety of Dot Jewels are added as accents. To add a bit more dimension I also included some Layered Chipboard pieces.

I love the glitter accents of the Layered Chipboard pieces!

The two top layers are stitched on and edges gently distressed. Foam adhesive squares added so much texture on the page. Here's a surprise for you, the fireworks at the top (Good Vibes), are actually turned upside down. I thought it was a fun switch.

Of course I had to add a few Dot Jewels to accent the cute designs in this collection. This page was so much fun to build and it cam together so quickly.
