Happy First Anniversary CardPosted: August 16, 2014
Last year in August, we went to THE best wedding ever! (Yes, even better than my own wedding.) Chris’ brother got married. We traveled just a few hours away from our house to Galesburg, IL. It was beautiful, SO much fun, and filled with wonderful hand-made touches everywhere you looked. Chris and the girls were in the wedding. They LOVED being flower girls in Uncle Adam and Aunt Maria’s wedding! We all adore them and I wanted to share just a few of my favorite photos from the wedding. Of course, when I say a few…I mean under 40 photos today. Ha! So, I thought I would be best to share them in a slideshow.
I got excited when I saw some Amy Tangerine and Dear Lizzy papers used at the tables. I loved, loved, loved the idea of using a book with a heart cut-out inside for the wedding rings. LOVED! I just loved their book-themed wedding along with items included that reflected them and what they’ve done. The details were just wonderful and fun to look at…so much planning, preparation, and hard work…it was just WOW!
A Chinese lantern, fireworks, and more dancing finished off the amazing day!
It was the BEST WEEKEND celebration!
SO, now for my hand-made card for Adam and Maria using the Jen Hadfield Home+Made collection by Pebbles!
I heat embossed these stamped images from Amy Tangerine and Dear Lizzy right onto the Chalkboard Sticker. I drew the border around the sticker by hand using the Zig Squeeze and Roll Glue Pen. Then, I heat embossed it. I love the way it turned out.
More stamping on the matching envelope for the card.
I used the From Me to You Roller Stamp again here inside the card.
