It's the day after....

Christmas. It's Friday and hopefully you have the day off. I hope that you all enjoyed the holiday and that you were surrounded by those you love. Just in case you are looking for something to keep you busy over your long weekend, we thought we'd share some great non-holiday inspiration to get your scrappy gears movin'.

To get this layout started, Jenn grabbed the Scenic Route Appleton collection! This paper is so awesome! The red is a TRUE red and the blue is great too. Jenn took 5th Street paper and cut it in half, then she flipped one of the pieces over. She connected the "seam" with a strip of green cardstock. This is a great paper-saving technique!!! Next, she cut the Quickutz Flowers 12" Border and since Jenn is creating this page for her son, she used the Quickutz School Cookie Cutter Dies instead of the flowers to fill in the circles! For her title, Jenn used the Diesel Grand (3), Rockstar (rd) and Aquarius (Grade) alphabets. Love the combo!

This next layout from Brenda is also a school themed layout.

Brenda used the Bosskut school bus, school house and brackets. Here's a close-up of the pages.

Brenda even added a hidden journal block and she used the Quickutz Tab to top it off.

When making two-page layouts, creating the pages as mirror images of each other is a great way to give them balance.

These next two layouts come from Tammy.

Tammy used the Quickutz Revolution Butterfly and the Quickutz 4x8 Storybook font.

On her next layout, she started out with paper from Scenic Route's Sonoma line.

Then she added the Quickutz 12" Bead Border, Quickutz Photo Corner and used the 4x8 Chemistry font for her title.

The last layout I have to show you today is from Veronica.

The title on this layout was made with the Quickutz 4x8 Dragonfly font and means "Sunshine Boy". She used glitter cardstock and cut flourishes using the Quickutz Revolution Antique Flourish. What a gorgeous layout!

I do have just one more thing to share with you today. It's a quarter-size reference from our CraftyDeb for the Quickutz 4x8 Mini Storybook alphabet.

Thanks for stoppin' by today! We appreciate you! If you haven't stopped by the store yet hop on over and check out the after Christmas deals. I hear all the Quickutz 4x8 alphabets are on sale. You'll also find some great deals on all Quickutz Cookie Cutter shapes and even some Bosskut dies!

We hope you're enjoying all of the projects. We've received some invaluable feedback recently and we encourage you to keep it coming. You can email me anytime at If I can't answer your question or help you then I will find someone who can. We'll be back on Monday, December 29th with ALL of the tag contest entries! I hope everyone has a great scrappy weekend! And if you'd like to share your creations with us, you've got my addy! We'd love to see 'em.
