Wedding Invitations

Just recently finished some beautiful wedding invitations. This is for a friend's son and his fiance. With the bride to be, my friend Carolyn and myself....well also input from the groom to be, we brain stormed and came up with these very beautiful wedding invitations.

First we stamped with a leaves stamp on white cardstock. We then scanned it in and adjusted it's opacity in photoshop elements. We wanted the burgandy leaves in the background. One problem of changing the opacity only was it made the burgandy look pink. Had to also adjust the levels so that it would be a deeper color. Once we had the leaf background we added the text using Murray font.

Added a beautifuly ribbon down the side and attached it with dark copper brads.

The leaves were cut out of copper scrapbook paper on my craft robo and then attached to the invite on the ribbon with glue dots. Turned out perfect, don't you think.

To tie the RSVP cards to the invite we added the same burgandy leaves to the background.

Retro Santa

Played around with a free GSD file that I downloaded from Very cool file. Here's a sample of a Christmas cards that I made. I embossed this one with snow flakes.

Fun with Digi

Well not sure what's going on but my creative juices have been flowing. Here's another digital layout that I did. Photo of my mom and I. My mom made our outfits. Aren't we cute.

I also did another layout of my brother and I. I journaled his battle with cancer on my personal blog and decided that I wanted to have a lasting memory so I have started creating layouts. This is my first layout of my brother. The journaling is my entry that I made on my blog.

Christmas Cards

I'm getting way ahead of myself, can you believe it. Starting to work on my Christmas Cards!

New Digital Layouts

I've been busy this weekend getting caught up making some digital layouts. Here's a few that I got done.

The first layout is of Jackie and her first Triathlon. Good thing that I haven't printed this yet because I just realized I spelled Triathlon wrong.

I had a challenge to do a layout about the angels in my life. Here are 3 of them.

The last layout is a fun Saturday afternoon at the lake with friends.
