2017 – The year to finish the wedding album!

Hello There!

This year I have decided to finally try and finish my wedding album. It’s mostly PL cards with a few 12×12 spaces for a few bigger layouts with my favourite photos from the day. I decided to play along with the sketches from ‘The Love of Pretty Paper‘ Facebook group.

No automatic alt text available.

I tried to stay pretty close to the sketch above. Our wedding colours were pink, gold, grey and cream so wanted to make it as including all of those colours.

The background is a Dear Lizzy paper I think from the Saturday collection, the big flowers and gold are from Maggie Holmes bloom which I’ve had for ages unused. I love the flowers but with a little boy its hard to grab those out so it was amazing to get those used!

I used little pink letters from a studio calico project life kit and lovely gold lettering. Even though it is only a few paces I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous, It’s weird I never had any doubts about getting married, I think it was having everyone’s eyes on us!

I put a lot of gold colour shine spray and some gold washi tape and a cut up project life card for the journalling space. I have a lot of space for journalling in the other side so wasn’t too worried about it being a really tiddy size!

I love using flowers and I tucked a few cut outs feathers from a Kaiser craft line just to add a little more grey into the very pink and gold clusters!

Thanks for reading. Only another … pages till I’m finished!

November Stick it down challange

Hi There,

I decided to play along again withe the stick it down challenge this month as I was inspired to make an end of the year summary with the single page sketch. I will couple this page with one or two pages to sum up our 2016.

Instead of having the top and bottom panels I opted to frame the white paper, I cut out the 2016 using my new silhouette and was harder than i thought as I just couldn’t get it to cut through all the pages. I cut 11 little photos in 4.2cm squares so they would all fit and did some stamping and gold mist in the background.

I brought some fringing scissors at the weekend and was dying to try them out so I grabbed some pink, blue and yellow scraps and chucked them behind the die cut shape. I wanted to leave it pretty simple as there was a lot going on in this layout already so added a few enamel dots and left it at that. I’ve left one space for December which obviously hasn’t happened yet!
