DT Post No 2 by Lucy - Featuring Save the Date by Teresa Collins


Hi Lucy here, with my second make with the beautiful Save the Date collection. I decided that my bride needed a clipboard to take with her when she goes to appointments to arrange her wedding. I painted the edges and the metal clip with Fresco Finish paint in Mermaid. The paint covers the metal perfectly without chipping! I added papers from the range front and back including the black and white strip from the title bit of one of the 12 x 12 papers. I stamped the wording from the clear stamp set, 'I love you more than there are stars in the sky and fish in the sea' in Onyx Black Versafine bottom left.


I added the ric rac we were sent to the clip and made some more matching Core-dinations sanded flowers, some with the flowers from our kit in the centre and some with the glazed brads from the Teresa Collins' Save the Date collection. To finish off, I stamped a butterfly onto one of the pink Save the Date papers.

I will be back on Friday with my final make.

Beautifully coordinated project. It is really eye-catching and effective. The flowers look very unusual with the dotty and geometric black and white papers. Mermaid is becoming my favourite Fresco Finish paint colour, I think and it looks perfect with this clipboard. Julie Ann xxx

What a great idea Lucy! Every person who is co-ordinating their wedding should have one to match their theme, yep brilliant idea.

Stunningly decorated, lovely colours, your post will be a tough one to follow, well done:-) xxx

What a great way to showcase these chic papers - and the delicate floral embellishments work beautifully at the top.
