MY BIG FAT WEDDING BLOG HOP

Welcome to My Big Fat Wedding Blog Hop. We are a group of a talented ladies who love paper crafting (well most of us) and will be show casing Our Amazing Creations along they way. If you are visiting from http://Mary-fortheloveofart.blogspot.com then you are in the right place, if not, please go and start from the beginning at http://wwwpaperkraftsunlimiteddesings.blogspot.com Blog Hop Giveaway is............ $10.00 Gift Card om Ginger Snaps Scraps Here is what I came up with: These are items I made for my nephew’s fiance's bridal shower held in April. At the time, I didn’t’ realize I would be explaining how I made them so I forget a lot of the details such as size and ink color, sorry about that. For the treat boxes I used Tie the Knot, pages 72 and 73. I inked the edges of the dress with a ink (perhaps Lagoon from Close to My Heart) to match. I just used a generic paper pack I had on hand. fr
The floating frame is the M on page 60 monogram shadow. The date is from the Art Philosophy cart. It is done with vinyl so it is pretty forgiving if you make a mistake. It was the first time I made something like that and I was very pleased with it.
For the large box, I took a plain photo box and placed patterned paper in the middle. The wedding invitations were brown, beige and turquoise, so I tried to use colors that coordinated with it. I used the same M form page 60 in Tie the Knot. This time I used the monogram and monogram shadow cuts. The love birds are form pages 34 and 35. I finished it off with XOXO on page55.
The wedding card was actually for my other nephew who was married last fall. The Mr.& Mrs. Is from the Sweethearts cart. I seem to have misplaced this cartridge so I can’t give you any more details except that is the cart I used. I also ran the white through the Cuttlebug. The sentiment is a word art. This is my first Blog Hop ever and I really hope you enjoyed yourself. Please visit everyone and enjoy their fabulous work. Thanks to Vanessa for putting this all together!
