Bliss Guest Book

A friend of mine is getting married next month and I wanted to make her a guest book in the Bliss papers, since her invitations used this paper and her wedding album will also probably feature these papers! I was inspired by the sample project shown in Close To My Heart's Spring/Summer Idea Book on page xx using our My Creations 3-Ring Binder. And then I saw Karen Pedersen's awe inspiring mini album of her son's wedding using these same papers and binder. (Check it out here.)

So here is what I came up with. Each page has a card for the guests to sign and leave a note for the bride & groom and flips open for another guest to write. Also, on the other side of the flap is a perfect place to put photos of the guests who are signing (after the fact of course). Hopefully the photographer will get a pic of each person or couple!

The cover has the same quote that was on the invitations - "Our journey to find true love ends... our journey to cherish true love begins"

Now, everytime you order Studio J layouts or any of our products, you will receive an instant 22% discount on top of other specials and discounts! Woo Hoo! Want to build a business with Studio J and/or our classic products? I'll help you! Want to just get the discount yourself, I'll help you MASTER this program!

Spring Up Card and Tea Box

Oh so much to share with you! I made this card simply because I was dying to use our new Spring Up stamp set to try these way-cool flowers! Aren't they beautiful? And SUPER easy too!! Photobucket

Once I made the card, I began to think the little tea box project I've been dreaming of would go perfectly with this! So - voila! The other cool thing about this project is I have combined two very different paper packs! The pink flower paper is from the Sweetheart paper pack and the green paper is from our Miracle paper pack. Don't you just LOVE the muted, monochromatic pattern on the back of our papers? I sure do! And that's what I have used here! Looks like they were made for each other - Cotton Candy & Sweet Leaf! Photobucket Photobucket

I love using the doilies with these floral projects! I added a pearl to the center of each flower and the top of the tea pot! Check out these stamp sets that I used (you can click on them to see the stamp sets): Spring Up, Tea Time, In the Month of May, and Blessed - the April Stamp of the month - for the sentiment on the inside of the card which says "If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever. - Alfred Lord Tennyson" Instead of the "Mothers Day" tag it could be birthday, praying for you, thinking of you, friends, ANYTHING! The tea box template came from here.


This is also my creative club project for this month. The kit is only $5 (plus shipping) or FREE with a $25 order! Contact me if you are interested in attending my class or ordering a kit!


Now, here is a quick video to demonstrate how much fun and just how easy these flowers are to make!

Blessed - April Stamp of the Month

Photobucket

I love the sentiments in this month's stamp of the month "We are so Blessed" and "If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever. - Alfred Lord Tennyson" (Click here to see the stamp set.)


I can totally see this on a layout with a little girl walking through a field of flowers - or when we lived in CA - the Carlsbad flower fields would be perfect for this! And I love the images - flowers, birds, butterflies, and swirls galore! They will work well for weddings, for friendship, for SPRING!


Here is a simple card I made with this set. I got the idea of using a doily from the famous Ms. Wiz (see her cards here).
