Scrapbook Layout 4: Wedding

Here is a 1 page layout using DCWV's Luxury Stack; it is a stack with a shimmery design....probably not a stack I would use on a regular basis, but it is definitely a stack that's appropriate for a wedding layout.  I wanted to keep a neutral wedding theme, in order for it to be versatile to any wedding couple, so I decided on a "white" theme with a slight black outline throughout the layout. 

The tear bears, doves, and church were all hand-made.  I had a little trouble when making the satin dress; the satin bow kept popping up, so I had to hand-stitch the dress in order to keep it down.  Notice the pearl earrings on the bride?  This was a special gift for someone, so real pearls were used.

Church paper piecing
 
It is better to use a less stiff cardstock since there are so many layers; if the cardstock is too thick, it could curl.


Bride and groom
 
I forgot to give the bride a bouquet when I took this picture.

I gave her a bouquet later, but unfortunately, I did not have the right lighting for a good clear picture.

Groom
 
The bowtie was made with ribbon, and for the buttons, actual buttons were glued to his shirt; the gray cummerbund gave it a nice color and texture contrast.

Since this was a wedding layout, I used a lacey trim stitching for the mat.

This may be my favorite thing out of the layout; it has such a nice clean look.

Scrapbook Tear Bears 2.1-2.4: Graduation

It is that time again....graduation!  Graduation is always a memorable occasion; this would be a perfect scrapbooking opportunity to capture those moments.  I have created the graduation tear bears series; they feature a matching cap and gown set, a miniature diploma, and a cute tassel.  These hand-torn bears are perfect for completing graduation layouts or handmade cards; they measure about 5 inches tall, and can be customized to any school colors.  Please check out my facebook store for these customizable graduation tear bears.   www.facebook.com/alicazam.crafts 

All bears are made out of mulberry paper (yes, mulberry paper!), and are hand-fluffed to give them their fuzzy texture. All tear bear clothes are personally designed; no templates or stencils were used.
