I sometimes think it’s amazing how the internet has changed our lives. When I was planning my wedding in 1997, I bought a few wedding magazines, juggling tradition, my own style and our limited budget to create a special day to celebrate our marriage. It was pretty traditional – I really thought that all that could be customized was the colours I chose for the bridesmaids and the table settings!
I just love seeing how individual weddings are now that there is a world full of ideas, buying sources and options, though it makes me want to do my own wedding all over again!
Wade has two cousins getting married this summer, and I always like to wait until I get the invitations before I start thinking about gifts and cards. I want to make something that will suit the bride & groom’s own style. We got an invitation in the mail today, and I loved the bright colours – now I know how to make the card!
This week the Scrapbooker’s Paradise design team is making wedding and anniversary themed projects, so I got right to work on a colourful and celebratory wedding card! Papers are from October Afternoon, and the embellishments are from my stash – the fabric flower is Maya Road but I’m not sure about the rest.
Why not play along this week and get a jump on your own wedding giving? Go and check out the rest of the design team’s projects here, and then link up your project before noon MST on Thursday, July 12th. While you’re at the Scrapbooker’s Paradise blog, you need to check out their blog promotion because the prizes are delicious. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy shopping online with Scrapbooker’s Paradise and how frequently they throw a deal out for the benefit of their blog followers!
