I have been looking forward to this month's blog party...the theme fits perfectly with a scrapbook page I have made for my soon to be daughter-in-law Ashley. This month's theme is doilies. What better way to use doilies than on a wedding dress scrapbook page? I can't think of anything better. Here's my page:
tutorial on how to make an adorable dress from a doily. I modified mine a bit, but it is very close to the tutorial.
This is a picture of Ashley and her mom admiring one of the dresses she tried on. I thought Waltzingmouse You're Lovely was the perfect stamp set to use for this page. My Beautiful Girl is exactly what I imagine her mother was thinking on this special day. The background is stamped with WM Vintage Christmas Background for a very subtle texture. I distressed all of the background patterned papers, Ashley loves a vintage look and I think she will like all of the rough edges. I also printed out some of the pictures in color, some in sepia and some in black and white...Ashley will love this detail. She loves black and white photos.
This was Ashley's favorite photo...and this is THE dress she chose. It was one of the first she tried on and we all could tell it was THE one. I used some digital patterned papers that I bought called Lavender Shabby Chic. I plan to use combinations of these papers throughout the book as I can print whatever color I need with no worry that I haven't bought enough!
Vintage Labels #18 for the journaling frame and the lines are from WM Candy Jar Christmas. I want Ashley to write her memories of that day in the hopes that their future children can read about what she was thinking as she tried on her wedding dress for the first time.
You're Lovely. I added lots of little roses and some heirloom border trim.
That's it for me today...you still have time to make something for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party...here's a link with all the details!
