Last week I finished a project that was a bit of a 'What shall we do???' dilemma!
A friend I work with was going to a 'Secret Wedding', not that secret that the Bride & Groom didn't know - just secret enough that they wanted to do it quietly without a fuss and with only a handful of family in attendance.
My friend orders loads of cards and Nappy Cakes off me.....and anything else I fancy playing with actually - so we had to come up with a special gift.
The card was easy enough - she'd sent me a stunning photo she wanted using and as there was no 'colour-scheme' I felt a black & white theme would be best, all trimmed with silver.
Then for that special gift we decided on a 'Wedding Memories Book'! As they weren't having a formal photographer I thought this type of scrap book gift would work well. I cut lots of cards with Nesties for the guests to write on (I couldn't stand the thought of them writing on the actual pages....they might use different coloured pens!) I also included some 'bits & pieces' for her to decorate the pages with.
It was wrapped in a piece of gem encrusted Organza material and placed in a matching box....
Here's a couple of close ups of some of the details....
She e-mailed me yesterday and said it was a HUGE hit! They loved it :)
Challenges I'd like to enter this set into.....
ABC Challenge - F is for Flowers (I know I've only used 3, but I hope it's enough!)
40 something (I keep forgetting!) mum of 3. Zoe 24 and twins Ben & Ceri 21. Wife to my best friend Rob and we have just become the proud Grandparents of our beautiful little 'star' Seren, born on Feb 6th 2013.
Adopted mum to 2 cats Millie & Archie and a Sheepdog called Brad.
I got hooked on card-making about 5 years ago - actually I think I've only ever gone a few days since without crafting
- and that was when we were in my fav place on Earth - New York!
