Love on St. Valentine’s Day

Forever Friends is such a sweet brand.  I remember them being introduced in the early 90s. I have used Docrafts products to make this card on a black card blank.

Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you all. ❤

For your wedding

I have made ths card ofr my cousin’s wedding , which will take place next week.  I took a shaped 8 x 8 card blank and ran it through a Tattered Lace embossing folder and used green micro gems to highlight the lattice.  Spellbinders dies were then used to cut a greeting that was made on the computer.

    My sister got married yesterday

    I write this blog post with a big smile on my face.

    My sister got married yesterday and I made the dress. I bought a pattern and adjusted it as well as sizing it up.

    The fabric used was a blush lace and I love the way the dress looks almost antique.  It is lined with a coffee coloured lightweight jersey.

    Wedding album

    Have I told you that my sister is getting married? Well I have a very busy few days leading up to the first but I just wanted to share this gift I have made for her.

    I bought a really cheap and cheerful 8″ scrapbook album from The works.  I intend to make digital scrapbook pages of the wedding. I decorated the album using lace scraps from the dress, My Paper Stash embellishments and old necklace and some paper flowers from my stash. For the inside front cover I used a fitting sentiment on a topper also from My Paper stash and mounted it onto a mat made using Spellbinders. As I will give this gift before we have wedding photos, I have printed out the first scrapbook page.
