Happy Tuesday to y'all! I am secretly hoping this is going to be a quick week. For one last week was sooooo long and this week I have a nice weekend lined up. More on that later!
As is customary on this here blog, I aim to put up a scrapbooking project of somekind on a Tuesday. I have to say I am pretty chuffed with myself that half way through September I am still managing to keep it going with only a small number of minor not happenings! I shall try and run it through for the rest of the year. However, despite my efforts, my photo piles/albums/boxes/tins have not gone down.
Talking about storage for photos, I have a large tin which holds A LOT of photos in, semi in order too. You may recall that I recently lost my Aunt unexpectedly. Well blow me, the week after her funeral I decided that whatever photo/s I put my hand on when I dipped it into the tin, I would scrapbook. They fell on these piccies I am showing you today. They were taken at my Aunt and Uncle's 40th Wedding Anniversary some 8/9 years ago. (Need to check on the date for journalling purposes.)
I bought this Prima paper some 4 years ago and knew that it was perfect for a Ruby Wedding type layout and am so glad I hung onto it for just such an occasion. So a VOS used again! Layers of ribbon and lace (lace from Funkie Junkie Boutique and used veeeeery sparingly). The flowers and flourishes were all made from raiding my Snippets box.
I see some Bo Bunny Snippets in there as well as various pieces of plain cardstock. I also tried out my new punches from McGills so NBUS in here too.
The lettering was cut with my Cricut and then I used my embossing pen and added two different shades of pearls - one Cosmic Shimmer and the other TH. You can see the tag which is tucked in the side of the larger photo. The mounts for the photo have been stamped with TH stamp and embossed with gold.
You remember the cupcake sleeves that were on my desk, from my Nephew's wedding? I painstakingly cut the butterflies out, edged them with TH DI in Aged Mahogany and manipulated them to shape before adding some ruby blings on. Only used one so I can repeat this idea again, or maybe use it for a stencil?
Some more detail of the paper, flourish and flowers. I can see I am going to love this punch set! I have also used my trusty SU flower punch too - my other favourite! st BTW the "cake" is a pyramid of profiteroles!! Yummy!!
I am taking this over to the Playground as there are lots and I mean LOTS of Snippets included.
I am also taking this over to Mema's Crafts September Challenge which is Ribon/lace and/or flowers I got the lot in this layout!
Thanks for calling by.
