Hi Friends...welcome back to another scrappy post...this is gonna be a good one as it's all about a LO I did for the January Stack-a-holic template challenge over at Erin's DCWV Diary blog..you can read all about it here.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the DCWV paper stacks & had so much fun creating this LO. I am still scrappin up my wedding photos from 2 1/2 years ago..we seriously had a TON of photos taken due to have 2 photographers so this has been a work in progress since 2009 & I love it.
Even though my wedding colors were purple..the Be Mine stack was just perfect for a LO of my wedding photos. The colors from the pages I used go so well with the photos I picked out. So without further ado...here's my LO I've called "Happily Ever After".....
I am seriously thrilled with how this turned out. The sketch shows 3 photos & I just happened to have these printed off and ready to go on a page.
This paper is just gorgeous..the detail in the letters..textures & rich colors is just FAB! The blue felt trim at the top is from the Vintage Street Market Crate Paper Trims Neighborhood Collection (I cut the trim in half).
I fussy cut the Happily Ever After & added some pop dots for some dimension. I also didn't want to cover up the adorable cherubs in the background.
For the swag portion of the sketch I decided to fussy cut some more sentiments from the stack. I added some white eyelets and tied the sentiments using some Blossom twine from The Twinery to the soft pink wired ombre ribbon...Perfect!!
This next part was really fun as I was able to "play" with some of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The fabric scalloped trim comes plain..like muslin. I spritzed it with some Rose Glimmer Mist...let it dry and then spritzed it with some Glimmer Mist in Meadow Green. I was really thrilled that it turned out matching the DCWV paper so well...almost like I bought them together. I stapled the scallops to create a gathered feel. The flowers are cut from some ribbon I bought at a local craft store..I added some purple 1/2 pearls to make them pop off the page a bit. Here's a closer pic of the scalloped trim...
And one last look at my Happily Every After LO using the DCWV Be Mine stack & Metallic Stack....
Even though my wedding colors were purple...I found from this challenge that I don't always need to reach for mostly purple papers. I will most definitely be using more of the Be Mine stack in my wedding album. I think I will be putting this LO in a frame...I just love it (and I don't mean this in a tooting my own horn kinda way-I say this in the sense that the papers from DCWV are just so gorgeous and makes all of my projects turn out great!!!
