Wedding Book Page

It is ages since I have done anything to this wedding book project and I really need to get it finished before the end of the month and so much still to do.


Today I have used the TH dress form to make guest tags. The wedding is in Italy (and sadly we can't go as it is the day after we return from our holiday), but I will send out the tags with the chief bridesmaid who will get them signed for me to put in the book and I will give it to Jamie and Helen when they have their wedding party back here in this country in September.


I am using the Graphic 45 le Romantique paper pack, which is so suitable for this and the book (which is a wooden one) - I showed some of what I have made already Here, Here and Here.

My inspiration for this piece has come from -
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Embossing (the crown and the corner flourish)
Kraft Journal - favourite things (dress forms, make own backgrounds as on the dress forms, inks and vintage)
Our Vintage Affair - Wedding
Shabby Tea Room - Charms


Supplies -
Stamps - TH shabby french, La Blanche, Stamps Happen Inc - rose postcard
DIs - tattered rose, fired brick, weathered wood, faded jeans, vintage photo
Masks - Tando Creative
Charms
Ticket - free download


Officially this is my second post for today, but with the Grungy Monday DT piece not publishing yesterday that also went up this morning, so you have to say that's 3. Must be a record for me.

I said I was going to be creative today - so I hope you like it and of course I hope Helen and Jamie will like it too.

Have a good evening - I think I will crack on and see if I can get another page done.

luv and hugs {brenda] xoxox

Loving these dress forms Brenda, great project. x

Jen said...

What a beautiful page. I must say, I struggle to use my die for the dressform as I find it just that bit too large for cards. I am not a scrapper. But you've given me a brilliant idea to cut the dress form as you've done. This is genius. Looking forward to getting some use out of it now. Darling composition and that charm, well...just cahrming! Brava!
