WEDDING ALBUM Pages 4 thru 7

Hi Everyone ~ Hope all of you have a wonderful week end planned. A big Thank You to all the men and women that have served our country. My prayers also go out to all in Joplin and everywhere else that is being hit by these awful tornados.

As promised I am posting the next four pages of the wedding album that I am making for a friend. 

Now for pages 4 and 5.
The paper is from DCWV  Be Mine Stack, it is beautiful paper. It has lots of sparkle on it. The photo mat is a embossed swirl paper I got a t Joann and the corner are from Hiedi Swapp.

The I Do is from Tie The Knot, such a fun cartridge.

The Kiss is also from the Tie The Knot cartridge. I am pleased at how the paper had LOVE in just the right place on the page.

The chipboard bride and groom are from a wedding set I got from Oriental Trading and the journal box is from a journal set I got from a small scrapbook store in Brentwood, Ca. I trimmed it down so that the love would be the focal point and rounded the corners to make is softer and fit with the floral design that is behind it
Just like the picture above the perfect chipboard cutout and the journal box from the same places.         

 Pages 6 and 7

The paper is also from DCWV Be Mine Stack. The other papers for the photo mats are from my stash. The flowers on the cake side are sort of puffy felt and the flowers on the dance side are plastic. I got the flowers from the dollar bin at Michael's. The sentiment at the bottom says you make my heart sing.  I also stamped the blue birds and the you and me on the left side.  Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, not sure why.

The letters for cake are from the Song Bird Cartridge. I love this cart and use it all the time!

The dance is also from the Song Bird Cartridge.

The cake is from the Tie The Knot Cartridge. I think the bling added just the right touch.

Hope all of you like pages 4 thru 7. Through out the week end I will be posting more. I plan on visiting several blog hops tomorrow to see all of the wonderful creations that all of my talented friends are making and discover new talented friends.

Happy Crafting!!!!

WEDDING ALBUM Pages 1 thru 3

HI Everyone ~ It has been a while since I posted. Hope everyone is well and starting to enjoy the nice weather. I have been working on a wedding album for a friend and I am 2 pages away from finishing it. WaHooooo!!! LOL! What I have decided to do is post 4 pages of the album each day. Some pages come really fast to me and others take me a few days to plan out. I don't know if that is how it is with all of you. I make most of the album without pictures, I leave that for the person receiving the album. This is a 12 x 12 album and I am not sure what is the best way to take pictures. If anyone has any suggestion on how to take pictures of 12 x 12 layout pages, please let me know.
Here is the first page of the album and then the next 2 pages to follow.

The reddish pink paper is Martha Stewart, the shaped paper with the turquoise trim is from my stash, pink flowers are heidi swapp, the other flowers are from a stamp and I cut them out. The paper for the picture is from Best of K&Company. The letters for wedding are from Tie The Knot Cart and the Mr. and Mrs. are from a stamp and I cut it out.

Here is a close up of the Wedding and Mr. and Mrs.

Now for the Bride and Groom page. The paper is Martha Stewart, Bride and Groom are from Paper Doll Dress Up Cart. Journal boxes and hearts are from K&Company Elegance die cut and the circles of love are from Paper Pups Cart. Floral stamp is from my stash.

I cut the bride and groom from Dress Up Paper Dolls, all of the paper is regular card stock and the brides dress is from polka dot velum. I do believe the dress turned out great. I uses stickles to accent the bouquet and the sides of the grooms pants along with a white gel pen and googly eyes. LOL!

I used a EK Success corner adorner punch for the corners, this will hold the pictures.

Hope all of you like the first 3 pages, I will continue to post 4 pages for each post until I have posted all the page of the album.

My friend is will be sooooooo excited!!!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!
