DT Project No 3 by Lucy - Featuring Teresa Collins' Save the Date Collection

 



Hi, Lucy here with my third and final make with the Teresa Collins' Save the Date Collection. I decided to make a little book with pockets, etc which the bride-to-be could carry around with her to make notes for her wedding preparations and keep business cards of possible florists and photographers and have as a keepsake afterwards. I covered all the chipboard pages with a selection of the beautiful papers and inked the edges. The book rings and the book plate on the cover were silver so I coloured them with a black alcohol ink pen and a green gilding wax. I stamped the 'Forever For Always Love' wording from the clear stamp set onto one of the papers and placed it behind the book plate and added the glazed brads from the collection. I chose this particular paper for the cover so that the book plate could be positioned in one of the frame settings of the design. I stamped and cut out some flowers from patterned paper to go top left on my cover and used some of the lace we were sent on the book rings. As you can see in this picture, the book has tabbed dividers which are named The Dress, The Cake, The Photos, The Food, The Music, and The Flowers.
 


Here are a couple of examples of the inside pages. This one is for information about the photographer. I randomly stamped all over with words and added some butterflies and a dove. I stamped some words inside the frame from the clear stamp set in Coffee Archival and added this bottom right. I cut the 'Picture This' section from one of the pages and folded the edges inwards to make a pocket and inked the edges and glued this down and added some of the strips from the Ephemera pack.


For the Cake page I randomly stamped all over again and made a faux wedding cake out of a sticker and some Ephemera pieces with pillars from pieces of the paper collection and added the Bride and Groom from the Prima Something Blue Wooden Icon pack.

So many clever ideas on this project. It would make a great gift for a bridal 'shower', maybe with the clipboard to go with it - pretty and useful too for all that organizing that goes into the 'Big Day'. Julie Ann xxx
