Some Sunday Sunshine for you!

Warm Sunday greetings to you!  I've got a fun Quick Quotes August Club Q project to share with you today! 

Aren't the mix of colors in the Cherry Truffle line just fabulous? It's so rich and elegant. I had this sepia toned photo from when our little guy was only a few weeks old and thought it paired nicely with the line. I wanted to prove that you don't always have to use the color blue for boys. ; )
This paper is extremely versatile for most any project! I also just love the sweet tags that came with the kits!
To accentuate my sun shape, I added some accordion flowers and as an accent to my rub on quote, some baby feet stickers I have had for well over a year now. The quote: “This day will leave the silent footprints of precious memories in my soul.”  It perfectly conveys how I feel every single time I look at this photo. Something about how he is looking at me just makes my heart melt.

This is why I love to scrapbook!

Techniques used:
  • Created a few die cut shapes using Spellbinders Grand Calibur.
  • Stitched on the circle in gingham yellow with a fun stitch to simulate sun rays.
  • Used some light yellow acrylic paint to drybrush the edges of my paper and around my "sun" shape.
  • Also used the paint on my cream laser cut swirlydoo shapes.
  • Added little dots of stickles to the floral dots on my background paper. 
  • Sanded my coredinations cardstock to reveal the yellow core under the black. 
Other Products used:
Non Kit items:
  • Epiphany Crafts buttons, round 14 (2), round epoxy 14 (1), vintage settings (1)
  • Ranger Stickles in Diamond
  • Crinkle Ribbon
  • Martha Stewart baker’s twine
  • Stick Pins
  • Jolee footprint stickers
  • Light yellow acrylic paint
  • Bazzill and Coredinations cardstock
  • Sewing Machine and thread
  • Journaling pen
Thank you so much for stopping on over for a moment!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  Be sure to stop on by the Quick Quotes blog to see what's new too!
