It sure has been a long time since my last post. As many of you know I have been sick and trying my best to live my life while fighting pancreatic cancer. While it has been a huge challenge I am happy to say I am still here living and breathing. One thing that help me through to this point was my daughter Sam's wedding. While I was home on sick leave I did my best to craft as much as I could for the wedding. My intention was to post pictures along the way but it was all I could to to get each project done between my chemo treatments. I did take cell phone pictures along the way and I thought I would share them with you now that things have settled down. I will tell you that almost all of the projects were done using CraftArtist2 software.(my favorite) I used my ZING and Brother Scan n Cut for most the die cutting. The other die cuts like the butterflies were made via my sizzix and the Stampin' Up butterfly die. All the projects were so huge that I left my craft room for the dining room table. The house was a hot holly mess for about six months! All of the paper was ordered from LCI paper in Massachusetts and is Stardream paper in quartz, black and silver. I got great feedback on the quality and level of all the projects. So along with a few comments here are the pictures:
I purchased pre-made pockets as the cost was cheaper than if I cut them myself.
I only took one pic, but the peeps loved them! Wish I had a better picture.
I bought them online and the packaging was awful so I needed to change it up.
I made a nice banner for the gift table at the shower.
THE REHEARSAL DINNER:
These were made with the SU floral bouquet die.
BUBBLES FOR THE CHURCH:
I had so much fun with these!
In lieu of a guest book the bride chose Jenga blocks to be on each table. The guests wrote a lot of funny things. This makes for a great keepsake!
BUTTERFLIES: (like crazy)
Butterflies everywhere including the centerpieces. I made them for the florist and then she attached two per centerpiece.
Oh my are you still with me.
THE SEATING CANDLES:
These were changed up from the original design but still I got the look I was going for. It brought a lot of candle light to the tables when the guests picked them up from the piano and brought them to the tables in the ballroom.
AND FOR THE ADULTS:
A wine a cheese basket complete with cutting board.
