Celebrate

April 18, 2020

Today’s page shows off a couple of photos from my sister Karyn’s wedding.  The one at the top shows Ron & I with his parents, my sister and her husband Jim.  The bottom photo is just of Ron & I with his parents.  I kind of followed a sketch that I found on Pinterest to create the page.  I stamped the image from the Gallery Grunge stamp set onto a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page using Crumb Cake ink.  I embossed a strip of Mint Macaron card using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  (I don’t have 12″ x 12″ Mint Macaron card, so I used a strip of A4 card.  If you put your card into the Embossing Folder across the folder, you can emboss and then slide the card across and match the design and emboss again.  To do this you need to have the embossing folder in your machine with the fold to the side, so you have to be careful, but it does work.)  I cut two frames from Early Espresso card using the Ornate Layers Dies.  I attached the photos to the frames and then the right hand side of the page.  I cut another smaller frame from Early Espresso card using the Ornate Layers Dies and attached it over the split in the Mint Macaron embossed card. I used the Rectangle Stitched Dies to cut a 3″ x 4″ journaling card (from my stash) to create the panel to write my story.  This piece fits perfectly onto the Ornate Layers Die.  Lastly I stamped the floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the images using Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the flowers and spritzed them with a mix of Isopril and Champagne Shimmer Mist before attaching them to the page.  The title is cut from Early Espresso card using the retired Celebrate You Dies.

These photos are over 40 years old – how time flies – and Ron’s parents are no longer with us.  It makes me happy to see these photos on a page instead of in a box.  I know my Grandchildren will get a surprise when they see these photos.  (They forget Nan and Pop were once young!)

Bye for now,

Kris
