The bride was beautiful, the groom handsome, the wedding a whirlwind! It is an amazing experience to see your child get married and to welcome the new spouse as a real part of the family. And to see all the months of planning actually come together in the decor, the flowers, the food, the music….everything! It was all wonderful!
Of course stamping played a part in all of this! I was honored that my daughter asked me to make her wedding invitations. We were able to partially design the invitation while I was visiting in June, although it was right at catalog change-over time so would we use retiring paper and could we get enough or would we prefer a new color and accessories from the demonstrator preorder? Concord Crush seemed to be the right color, and she loved the new "Vintage Wallpaper" embossing folder and Scallop Trim Border Punch so I had to incorporate all of those. She liked the inside of the Vintage Wallpaper embossing showing so that really dictated the size and design of the whole invitation. It was a paper-engineering and computer feat, but with tips from my cyber-stamping friends with more computer skills than I had I eventually got it ready to go!
One of the insert cards…..my favorite! The bride is from the Spanish set in Celebrando Creatividad, Para la novia. A lot of guests were coming from out of town.
The fan was purchased, of course, but I made the menu, the table number/name, the favor tin and the escort cards. As you can see, it had a bit of a Spanish (as in Spain) theme! It was all fun!
And now back to real life! I don't know where to begin to catch up! But I know Stampin' Up! has some specials going on and new My Digital Studio downloads, and the holidays are upon us! Whew! I better get busy!
