Pin It Now!
Finally getting back here! It's been nuts. :)
This is page 2 of my purple wedding album. You may recall that my customer chose the retired Shades of Spring Designer Series paper? This was, I thought, one of the prettiest patterns in the stack. I fussy cut the pattern out, inked the edges just a tad with a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker and matted it on a subtle polka dot pattern background sheet from the same DSP pack. This is a great way to really show off a pattern - and still have enough left over for other pages. :)
They don't show much in the picture, but I added pearls to accentuate the pattern of the "flower" and made a custom center on a 1" round Certainly Celery punchie by stamping one of the centers from Mixed Bunch in Chocolate Chip.
I chose to add only a "journaling box" in lieu of a formal title - that way, the bride can choose to use this as a wedding album or for any other occasion. My photo mat is So Saffron matted on retired Orchid Opulence, and the journaling box, die cut from Apothecary Accents, is also Orchid Opulence. A scrap of Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon, an Antique Brad and a bitsy little Pretty in Pink Butterfly die cut and embossed with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit finishes off this page.
