More Baroque Wedding projects


Today I want to share the other two things that I made for my sister-in-laws wedding. First is the menu. This was handstamped and printed using the Word program on my computer.

Next is the Program. The front was done using the new "My Digital Studio" program. I had to play with it a little to get everything lined up evenly. I started them about 5 days before the wedding and was starting to panic, because we couldn't find any clip art that would work with the Very Vanilla card stock. Then it occurred to me that I should see what was on my new My Digital Studio program. I'm so happy that I did! I found the heart from the "Always" stamp set. I put it together and printed one out. Then I scanned it and sent it to the bride-to-be. She absolutely loved it!

I spent a lot of time doing everything for the wedding. I got so many comments. It really made me feel good. Now that the wedding is over, I'm trying to catch up on a lot of things I had to put aside. I'm hoping to start some new projects and get ready for the holidays. They will be here before we know it.

Please come back soon. I hope to have some holiday projects to share in the next couple days:)

Have a great day!

My first Blog entry

Good morning everyone! I guess I should start by telling you that I just became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator on October 1st. I'm very excited about it. I have been stamping for 3 years and it has brought so much to my life. I have made so many friends and I really enjoy making cards and other fun projects with Stampin' Up products.

I have done several crafts throughout my life. I started out making fabric photo albums, then I did counted cross stitch (I really loved the finished work, but once spent 9 months on one piece), then I actually talked my husband into taking a ceramics class with me. We had a blast, but that didn't last either. Then one day a friend sent me a handstamped card. I loved it. The thing that intrigued me the most was the embossing. I loved the look of the raised shiny black outlines. I asked her how she did it and she told me how to find the supplies I needed. I then went on-line and found my demo. That was all she wrote! I contacted her right away and bought my first set , "Trick or Treat". I've been hooked ever since.

I was originally planning to join the Stampin' Up! family after the holidays. I'm going to be in my sister-in-laws wedding in less than two weeks and then before we know it, the holidays will be here. After seeing "My Digital Studio", I just couldn't hold off any longer. If there is anything I can do to help you, please contact me.

Now, I would like to show you how I've been spending most of my time in the last couple months.
I made 80 wedding invitations and 150 favors. Even though it took a lot of time, it was fun for me doing something I really enjoy.

Supplies Used:
  • Stamps: Baroque Motifs
  • Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Craft Bravo Burgundy
  • Other: Clear EP, Retired Burgundy Organdy Ribbon

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you will come back again soon. Have a wonderful weekend!
