DIY Wedding Projects


Spring is a great time for a wedding, I know because we are planning one for my son this summer.
Today I have  wedding projects using PhotoPlay- We Do collection.

This is such a pretty kit, I love the Black, Sepia and Gold colors.

 

We will start with the Layout.  
There are so many pretty patterns in this kit; and the stickers are just as beautiful.
This layout is a great way to showcase photos from that special day, 
Use 3 large photos and 2 smaller ones, then let the paper do the rest.







  Invitations can  cost a pretty penny but with the help of a Silhouette and some printed cardstock, you can do your own at half the cost.
The Invite folder is a Silhouette file, but you could use almost any template or design your own.




Whenever there is a  wedding, there is always lots of other parties and celebrations to plan as well and that means you need favors.
The little wedding dress and tuxedo boxes make great handouts for any get together.




If you are attending a wedding, you will need a wedding card.

Here are just 2 examples. 
 Use stickers, papers and journaling cards, along with gold rhinestones to create your own.

Thank you for joining me today and looking at all of the projects.

Vintage Projects with Photo Play Papers Gypsy Rose


Tracy here from The Idea Closet and today I have a fun project to share with you from the Heartfelt Design Team using 
Photo Play Gypsy Rose collection.

This paper has a soft vintage feel to it.  The floral print and butterflies are feminine and beautiful.



The string tie envelopes and box are a great start for this project.
The file is from Silhouette and can be found here.
The envelopes were cut from vellum.  The cards are cut from cardstock with the printed paper or journal cards added.  Don't forget to decorate using some of the stickers.
Tie closed with twine.




Next up is this box.  Use your digital cutter to cut this svg file from Snap Dragon Snippets.
You can find all the details here.



Create cards using some of the scraps, more vellum and stickers.  
Who wouldn't want to receive one of these cards.



My favorite project was the layout.  Its a great way to share a few favorite pictures.  



Use die cuts or your digital machine to add vines. 
Don't forget to add scraps of the beautiful paper, matted w/ cardstock and for the finishing touch add more stickers.

I hope you enjoy checking out this project.
