Here Comes The Bella Bride!

 

Hello Everyone,

One of the most requested themes last year while I was doing the St. Albert Farmers Market was for wedding cards…

Moment of truth time, I really struggle with the concept, probably because;

A.) I have never been in love (in infatuation yes, but never actually been in love)

and,

B.) I find my cute and colourful style doesn’t always fit into the classic white, neutral, with a pop of colour colour pallets that are the norm.

So this was a real challenge, until I stumbled across this pattern paper pack and focused on the style of papers I am usually drawn to, (cute dainty patterns with a mix of polka dots and stripes) and made it work with the theme.

Therefore resulting in Wedding Day Bella!

After that this card came together much like how I imagined, and to top it all off I was very happy with the final product.
I hope if you, or someone you know is getting married soon that they enjoy their wedding day as much as this happy couple!

Question Time! If you have been married/ or hope to some day what would your Wedding song be?

My Answer: I joke with my cousin that when I eventually do get married I should pick a anti love song (just for the shock factor and to have a good laugh) but in my heart it most likely will be something from the 50’s-60’s era.

 

Lots of Love,

Patti

Today is Day THREE of the June Krafty Peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! I’m thrilled to be a Krafty Guest and join in the release fun! We are previewing a fabulous new stamp set by artist Annie Rodrigue called FLOATIN’ FIONA! So kick back your feet (much like Fiona is doing here) and float on through the Krafty hop!

The Details:

I coloured her up with a new skin combo that I really like for a slightly tan look, then coloured her hair… I love her hair for practising tight little curls. I will have to colour her up again soon so I can practice more. I then paper pieced a cute polka dotted bathing suit (my favourite kind of bathing suit!) and coloured the Dolphin floating in a dark aqua marine colour combo.

I decided to keep my card fairly simple. I wanted to make a slider card (wow! not as easy as I had imagined.) I was looking to also do a sunrise motif with Distress Ink, along with a secret fishy panel using the new paper pack we received in our kits finished off my card base.

I then added some puffy clouds (including one of the sentiments),  and a few lovely little enamel dots and a little sticker for the pull tab, I then called my card complete.

Not how I pictured it, but they say better to try and fail then to not have been creative at all. I think that is my motto in life!

This set (including 5 new coordinating sentiments) plus all the other new sets being previewed this week will be released on Saturday night!! Hope you can join us in this Hot new release!

Question: What is your favourite Summer activity?

My Answer: I love going up to my family’s Lake, and Sea-dooing with the cousins. Also those nights sitting around a campfire sharing silly stories, that turn into inside jokes later on during the year! are some of my favourite memories.
