Wedding Book Part 2

Hi crafters,
I finished my friend's wedding gift this weekend!  I did a total of 20 layouts in one week.  I am so happy with the way it came out and I hope she and her husband love it.

The Husband and Wife are from Storybook using the fancy font for the first letters and the regular Storybook font for the other letters.  Happily Ever After also came from Storybook.  The scalloped circle and squares are from Mini Monograms and embossed with the cuttlebug.  The word Love is from Sweethearts.  The sand dollar is from Stretch Your Imagination.

The letters for CAKE are from A Child's Year.  The cake is from Sweethearts.  The glasses are from Stretch Your Imagination.  Cheers is in the Gypsy font.

Celebrate is cut from Gypsy Wonderings. Friends is from A Walk in my Garden.

This is another favorite!  This brings the Bride's and Groom's alma-matters together.  Longwood is done with Plantin Schoolbook and VMI is done with Lyrical Letters.

This is the last page.  I used the cricut markers to write on the shape and instead of cutting out the letters I just cut around the shape.

I got the tutorial for this card from This Blog

The shells are from Life's a Beach.

Wedding Gift Scrapbook

Hi Crafters,

I hope you had a nice Labor Day!  We had the day off from school and even though we've only been in a little over a week it was much needed!  I was inspired by a fellow crafter (and fellow Dec '07 wife) who created a scrapbook for her brother's wedding.  Check out her finished book Here.

I started working on a wedding gift for one of my college roommates.  She is getting married at the beach in the beginning of October. I used a lot of cartridges through out.  I will try to list which ones I used under the layout.

The font for this is Gypsy font.  The date is from Designer Calendar.  The & symbol came from Lyrical Letters and the background shape is from Storybook.

The paper is a mix from a Core-Dinations pack, Black Currant, and just black and white cardstock.  The Bride and Groom words and the hearts came from Sweethearts.  The accents behind Bride and Groom are from Storybook.

Here Comes The Bride comes from Sweethearts.  The larger accent is from Storybook and the smaller accent is from Stamping Solutions.  The sand dollars and seashell are from Life's a Beach.
The I Do adn Mr & Mrs are from Sweethearts as well.  The True <3 is from Gypsy Wondering. The scalloped circles are from Mini Monograms and embossed with the Swiss Dot folder. I used a DCWV Summer 2010 mat stack for the photo mats for these. 

This is one of my favorite layouts from the bunch!  The family is from Gypsy Wonderings.  The green strips are glittery (from a 2009 DCWV Holiday Stack) and line up when in the book side by side.
The fonts for this layout are both from Lyrical Letters (I adore the fonts on this cart).  I am not sure where the accent is from but I think it's Storybook and I am totally smitten with this accent. It is so pretty and it cut really nicely for a more intricate design.

This is all I have done so far.  I'm a little more than half way done.  I will post the final project pictures.  I must say having the Gypsy really did help me organize and speed this process up.  I sat down before I started and picked the theme for each layout so I knew what I needed to do.  When I went organize things with the Gypsy I could easily plan out what colors I wanted to use for the different accents so that the book would flow nicely. 

If you made it this far through my rambling thanks for taking the time to sort through it.

Happy Crafting,

Bridal Shower Card

Hi Crafters,

I made this for a friend who is getting married in less than a month.  Her bridal shower is coming up next weekend and I am not attending but sent her a little package this weekend.  This card is from Sweethearts and it is embossed with the cuttlebug using the textile folder, swiss dots, and d'vine swirls.  Be sure to click on it for a larger image to get the full embossing effect.  The textile folder really makes the lingerie have a more lace like appearance.  I used the black and pink core-dinations paper in the background.
