Wedding Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to Paper House Wedding Week:

Chalkboards are still all the rage and I just love the way they blended the chalkboard and wedding theme together. The To Have and To Hold collection is that perfect combination. Many of the sheets in the set are glittered too which just finishes the page perfectly.

I cut a strip of chalkboard paper and mounted it on top of a lighter background of roses because I didn't want the black to dominate the whole layout. As I didn't want too many embellishments to distract from the photo, I only used two and of course, no wedding layout is complete without a cluster of flowers.

1. Use the PH 12x12 To Have and To Hold paper as the background. Trim down the paper and mount it onto a lighter background paper.

2. Cut a matte for the central photo from glitter paper and cut a second matte in a coordinating color. Add a transparency with a floral border edge over the photo.
Tip: Decorate your own transparency by using permanent ink to stamp onto a transparent plastic sheet. Remember to always save any thick plastic craft packaging (often dies & embossing folders come in nice plastic)

3. Next, tie loose knots in a strip of organza ribbon and secure it along the lower 1/3 edge of the layout. It added a lovely soft texture without being too bulky.

4. Finally, embellish the layout with a PH Wedding embellishment pack, a small flower cluster, ribbon, and tiny gems.
Tip: For an extra bit of sparkle and shine I added glitter directly on the photo.  I used iridescent Stickles glitter glue to add small dots along the bride's dress, tiara, & earrings.

Hey, Little Monkey!

For today's layout I used 4 pages of 6x6 sheets from the PH Little Animals paper pad and created the look of a blanket for the background. I added hand stitched borders to give it the realistic look of a quilted blanket. The large palm trees were fussy cut from 12x12 Into the Wild paper and reassembled with foam tape to give a 3D layered affect. This layout came together very fast because the 3-D Embellishments were the perfect finishing touch.

                                   Shhhhhhhhhh, Little Monkey is Sleeping!

Take a look at the cutest little 3D monkey stickers.
Paper House has an amazing selection in nearly every theme imaginable.

1. Use 4 PH 6x6 sheets to piece together the background. Pierce the edge of the squares with a needle and stitch around the edge of 2 of the squares with embroidery thread.

2. Cut out the palm trees from the 12x12 Into the Wild paper. Reassemble the palm trees with foam tape and adhere to the layout. Slightly curl up the edge of the leaves for a more realistic effect.

3. Next, matte the photo, mount it on foam tape, and adhere it to the lower right.

4. Finally, embellish the layout with PH monkey embellishments were desired.
