Cherry Truffle with Quick Quotes

So I have mentioned having some great news. Have I also mentioned I love Quick Quotes?

I am so lucky to get to be a guest designer for them this month! YAY!! Make sure to check out all my posts with them this month for some goodies at the end :)

They sent me tons of awesome product including this versatile line called Cherry Truffle. I look at it an I immediately think vintage so I challenged myself to think outside the box on this one.

I started with the quote "Live in the Moment" and went through some pictures. I love this picture of my boyfriend on his new ATV doing a wheelie. It really just embraces the moment!

I used a piece of paper on one edge of the velum to help hold it down and a flower in the other corner

Here you can see the paper layers I used and a close up of the wheelie in action! I also inked all the pages in Quick Quotes Powder Puff Ink in Mocha Mama

I love how this burlap "flower" or star turned out and here is how to make it!

I started with 5 strips of burlap, 5 lengths of twine and a dark velum quote cut into, you guessed it, 5 pieces

Here is what the petal looks like without the velum in it

 But I liked a little bit darker look so I added the velum

 And some glimmer mist (in Roll Top Desk)

 Twisted it back up and hot glued it together. You could also use Beacon's, I just didn't want to wait for all of them to dry

 Then I glued my 5 petals together and added some extra burlap in the middle.

 I added a large brad and my twine to finish it all off! Later on my page I added some flowers on top of the brad.

I hope you like the page and my mini tutorial. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment and let me know :)

Check back next week for another Quick Quotes project!

This is an awesome layout. I love the burlap flower. I would have never thought to put vellum inside.

congratulations on being a guest designer. I love the page with Mike doing a wheelie. I would never have thought to create a star/flower with the bulap and a quote. You always amaze me with the ideas you create.
