It's back! Wedding Flowers & Memories

Here is the beautiful paper flower bouquet that I originally posted a few weeks ago. Since today is the big day, I figured it was safe to put the photo back up. I absolutely loved doing this project! It is the perfect way to share your special day with someone who may no longer be with you. In this case, the bride's mother is deceased and this bouquet has photos of her mother and will be placed on the wedding party table at the reception. So, her mother is able to attend her wedding. Beautiful, don't you think?

Sunflower Wedding Card

My hairdresser, Jen, is getting married tomorrow and her theme is black & white and her flowers are sunflowers. When she showed me a picture of her cake, I came up with the idea for this card. I think it is one of my absolute favorites so far! (I think I say that with each new card I make!) Anyway, her cake is white with big, black polka dots. I used my circle punches and I ran the Flower Daisies #2 die through my Big Shot. The papers are Summer Sun, Basic Black (textured) and Whisper White. The stamp set is "Congrats" from SAB 2009 and unfortunately its retired. Dont'cha just love it?

We are giving her a gift card, so here's the inside.

Look for me soon on Etsy!

Wedding Flowers & Memories

I got to thinking that...this world, despite its size, is actually quite small. I don't want to ruin the surprise for the bride who is not getting married until 6/27 and she doesn't know about this gift. Even though very few people at this point read my humble little blog, it is actually quite possible SOMEBODY will recognize the pictures in this bouquet. So, I am removing the picture until 6/27/09 so I don't ruin the present. Check back then and I will re-post it. Thanks for understanding! I was just so excited to share, I forgot it's a surprise...duh!

This is what I have been busy doing (well, besides working!) My friend Mickey, the one I made this paper bouquet for, wanted me to make a paper bouquet for her niece who is getting married this month. She thought it would be a great way to have her niece's mother, who's deceased, at her wedding. I absolutely love the way this turned out! The picture just does not do it justice! It is so pretty! There are just a few pictures of her mother, so not all the flowers are covered in pictures. I think it is such a great idea! I hope she likes it! I used my Big Shot of course, and the Flower Layers #3 die and Flower Daisies #2 die.
