C.C Idea Book: Quote Page

“The way I see it, if you want rainbows, you got to put up with the rain.” ~Dolly Parton

Need I say more!

One of the things I like to use my journals for is Quotes, I love quotes…and it’s another excuse to play around in my journals!

This is a small collection of supplies I decided to use for this page spread, Kelly Bangs’ “Let’s Get Crafty” line by Simple Stories. (I highly recommend scrolling to the bottom of the Simple Stories website for some deals), a quote from the interwebs, florals from Kelly’s “Sunshiney Day” collection, tissue paper, a couple of tags I punched out of painted card stock, and stickers from my stash. I decided to go with a rainbow theme for obvious reasons.

I prepped my pages by scraping on a layer of white gesso to blend the background a bit, white paint works too. I like to do this when working on pages that don’t match to make them a little more cohesive. Then I added some heart stenciling for a pop of color. I like to stencil off the edge of the page because I will most likely cover a lot of it up with embellishments. If you cover more than you had originally intended, you can always go back over your work with more stenciling.

This stencil is from Vicki Boutin and may be discontinued, but I found this one at the Amazons:

Heart Stencil

So there were a couple of add ons here: a plastic adhesive pocket I got at the Target “Dollar Spot” many moons ago (they have quite a selection on the Amazons too), a journaling card made from a vintage playing card with a page tab, and a little heart shaped die cut.

As you can see, these little pockets hold quite a bit. There are three tags in there, and I’m sure I could get more in there. I love that little sticker on the outside of the pocket from Kelly’s collection to add a little depth.

Well, that’s it for my “Rainbow Quote Page”. I hope you will come back for the other installments of my “Idea Book”.

Until then,

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great day,

    1. That stencil is by Vicki Boutin, and I think it’s discontinued. I’ll have to put one I found on Amazon into the blog post, it won’t translate to this reply very well
