This is another layout my Mom and I worked on for my sister's wedding dress. Like the layout below, we do have pictures on it, but I had to cover the pictures up per the bride. No one can see the dress before the wedding, she said! =)

This uses the Emporium paper packet. Colors are Buttercup, Cocoa, Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf, White Daisy and Tulip.

On the left page is a row of chipboard hearts from our Dimensional Elements Framed Fun set that I colored in with Tulip ink. Attached to the row of hearts is a White Daisy Tag from the Mini Medley Collection. I then used our Love Letters Rub Ons to add the word "Joy" to the tag.

On the right page, there is a bracket { from our Dimensional Elements Fresh Shapes that is also colored in with Tulip ink. Then the circles on the right side of that page near the top are just cut out from the paper packet.

Floral Tapestry

I made these pages for my sister for pictures of her wedding dress. She is getting married next year in fall and already has picked out her dress. She lives a couple hours away, so the last time we were down there visiting her, she made an appointment with the place where she is getting her dress from so we could see the dress. Wow, it is such a beautiful dress! And I do have the pictures on these pages, but, as the bride said, no one can see the dress before the wedding, so I had to cover the pictures up. So sorry if my "covers" are crooked or look strange. =) My Mom and I worked pretty hard and we came up with a whole album for her full of pictures we had taken that day when we were down visiting her. She just loved it! And we had a lot of fun putting it together! So I'll be sharing the pages we made here, just no pictures on the pages though =)

This page I made with the Floral Tapestry papers. Colors are Garden Green, Orchid Bouquet, Twilight and White Daisy.

On the left page, I used our Tender Tags stamp set and stamped the tag and I also used the flourish stamps in that set to random stamp the background piece of Twilight cardstock.

The big flower on the bottom was simply cut out of the patterned paper and adhered there.

On the top, on the strip of Twilight cardstock, I have Twilight ribbon and in the middle of that is one of our Clear Inspirations Ribbon Slides that says "Precious". It is hard to read in the pictures. Then, tied to that with our Colonial White Ribbon is the Tender Tags I stamped. I also tied some of our Waxy Flax on that along with two of our Clear Inspirations Friendship Dangles. One of the Dangles says "{Love}" and the other one has a heart.

On the right page, I have another Tender Tags tag stamped in Twilight with the word "Congratulations" stamped on it in Orchid Bouquet. That had the same Colonial White Ribbon running underneath it and is held on both ends by our Edge Anchors Heritage Collection.

The strip running down the page was also stamped with more flourishes from the Tender Tags set.

On the bottom there is a small tag from the Stickease collection held on with a Twilight brad. Then, on the right side on the bottom, is another one of the Stickease that I matted, then ran our Colonial White Ribbon around.

The phrase I stamped on the right side is from The Giving Hand set and reads "I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, there is no hurt, but only more love. -- Mother Teresa".

Mother's Day Card

This is the card I made for Mom for Mother's Day this year.

The card base is actually a pocket and the part with the flowers on it pulls out.

The flowers are from our Just Blooms Big Pinks and I added our Craft Buttons to them and tied the Buttons with Colonial White Waxy Flax.

The card base is made out of Chocolate Textured Cardstock and I have a little strip of patterned paper from our Bella Paper Packet near the top.

The little tag I have on the bottom is stamped with a stamp set that is a consultant only set (so far anyway) called Dream Big. Then on top of the tag is a Crochet Flower from our White Daisy Mini Medley Accent collection. I also have a flower shaped brad in the center of the Crochet Flower also from the same Mini Medley Collection, but it is hard to see in the picture.

The ribbon tied about the card base is from the Creme Brulee Ribbon Round.

Then the phrase I stamped on the part with the flowers is from our My One & Only stamp set and it is stamped in Blush.

Thank you!

First, I wanted to say thank you soooo much to everyone who leaves comments. I can't tell you how much I just love seeing that, it just makes my day. There is nothing like coming home from work from a long day and seeing that wonderful comment. =) Thank you!

Plus I wanted to apologize for being absent for so long. Got busy working on an album for my sister for her birthday with her wedding dress pictures. Will be posting those pages soon. Plus the stupid computer's battery died and it was thinking it was 2003 for a good while and I could not post while it was 2003. lol But got the battery replaced and it is going well. So I hope to be posting a lot now that it is back to 2009!!
