Amy & Lance

This cute bride and her fiance are getting married next week.  Amy, the bride, and her family are good friends of my family.  We spent countless hours together on camping trips, at each others houses, working, you get the idea.  Amy and her 5 siblings were pretty much adopted brothers and sisters to me and my siblings.  It is crazy to think she is all grown up and getting married!

Amy's Mom asked my Mom and I to make a signature book for her reception. You know one of those cute books with pictures of the happy couple and space around the pictures for people to write cute notes. (Why didn't I think of doing a book like that when I got married? I have the old fashion rows of lines sign in book.)  Anyways, we made a cute book for Amy and Lance and I thought I would post pictures for all to enjoy!

Cover page for a 8x8 photo

Page 2- We embossed the border using a border from the Botanical Borders stamp set. The flower was from the Rustic Flowers stamp set and then we embossed it on vellum.  The "Forever & Always" came from the Friendship Work Puzzle stamp set.

Page 3- The finishing touches on this page are what made this page great. We used a little waxy flax, a foundry metal bookplate, some dew drops and a heart button.

Page 4- This page we added 2 more flowers that were also embossed on velum. We also added 2 brackets, from the On The Edge stamp set, with a little bit of waxy flax wrapped around them and embossed corner flourishes from the Playful Flourishes stamp set.  We also embossed the cute sentiment, "I thought of you today. . . and smiled!" from the Smiles stamp set.

This was such a fun project to work on with my Mom.  I hope Amy and Lance love it!! Congrats Amy!!
