ok, so i was out of town for the last 10 days of july and was not sure i would even participate in this project. i was glad to find some free time and be able to create! then just a day before the due date i heard about the cards galore scrapbook challenge and thought i would give it a try...with no time to create something new i thought i would just use this piece.
because this was a random picture i did not have any journaling to do so instead i added a quote. "the power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories that it has come to be disbelieved in. few people dare now to say that two being have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. yet, it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only." -victor hugo ~ les mise'rables. i think this sums us up!

happy wedding!

our 20 day vacation just ended last week (booo!) and i am already looking forward to our next one! this year we headed off to cali for my boyfriends sister's wedding. here is the card i made for the new couple!

the blue layer is embossed with a swirl pattern. the "s" is covered in a mix of gold, silver, blue, and white glitter, and is attached to the tulle with my homemade stickpin.
the inside of the card reads: as you join hands this day, exchanging words and rings of love, may the heavens truly bless you both. {from "just the right words" by judith wibberley}.
i also created a card for the bridal shower...thinking i was so clever - i cut up and used the pieces from the shower invitation to make the card.
of course, i did not take a picture of the invitation first {doh!} so i am bummed that you cannot see a before-and-after :( but this was a really fun idea that i will do it again in the future!
and finally before that ^ i created an engagement card when i found out there was going to be a wedding!!! the little birds were cut from the create-a-critter cart and i believe the branch was too {it was a while ago!}. the card base is green with tan layering and green inking around the edges.
the inside of the card features some layering with hearts and hand lettering {which i love to do!} i hope that the happy couple loved all of their cards and that you did too! <3

project #16

made with love {and paper} design team
july 1, 2012
theme: happy birthday
requirements: none

with things getting so busy with the end of school and summer beginning i thought it would be a nice time to have a simple, easily translatable project. for this month's project we were to make a *happy birthday* item. i went pretty simple with this one but it was a lot of fun.
i used a sizzix die for the flower and a stamp for the sentiment. the flowers on the inside are from a small punch. this card was quick and easy! hope you like! thanks for taking a look :)
