Embellished Quick Pages

I love to use quick pages!  Over the years of my freebie searching, I have amassed quite a collection of beautiful quick pages that I am determined to use.   The problem I have is, as a means of saving space on my hard drive, many times I just save the QP itself and I have no record of who made it or what kit is made from so I can not credit the designer(s).  They are just so pretty, I am going to use them in spite of that fact.  Often times, I like to further embellish the quick pages so they are unique.  Here are some examples, I have made recently:

 I found this "Thinking Of It" QP in my stash but I have no idea who made it, or what kit was used but I wanted to include it in my niece's wedding album I am working on.  I used Birgit Kerr's new Art Masks-Volume 1 and additional elements from Plum Tuckered from the Studio Crew's Spirit of Delight at Scrapbook Graphics


 I like to make two corresponding pages in my albums when I can, so I searched through my stash and found another QP (above).  Again, I do not know the designer(s) but so it would better go with the previous page, I added it to one of the pretty papers from the Studio Crew's Plum Tuckered Kit, and added a nice wedding poem I found on line.

This next set was made by using  Microferk's QP Blog Gift from Miki's Meadow.  I added the QP atop beautiful papers from the Beloved Paper Pack by Rina Kroes.  On the second layout, I reversed the QP and added
Microferk's The Grove Frame Cluster made by Scoobie81 (Lisa) which was a gift from one of the SBE Newsletters.

Both Miki and Rina often offer the most beautiful quick pages on their blogs!
Bookmark them and visit them often! Don't forget to tell them, I sent ya!

Because you have read this all the way to the end, I have a little belated Valentine gift for you...
A QP made from my SBE Scripture Challenge Layout using Rina's Beloved Page Kit.



And as a note to designers and bloggers, name your QPs with designers' names, as well as the Kit's name.
Then if it gets separated from its file folder, your beautiful and most generous work can still receive proper credit.
