Wedding time

Hello again, my project ties in with Sam's..... This time of year sees lots of weddings and as I am in the planning stages of my own wedding I thought I would show you how easy it can be to create your own beautiful stationary. Its so exciting to receive a wedding invitation, and if its handmade its more special as its more personal than a shop bought one. You can make a whole range of coordinating stationary for your big day.

Like Sam's friend Irene I want a colour theme to my wedding, I want to see this colour in everything from my bridesmaids dresses to my invites. For this project a have chosen a Jade colour.
I started by making a lovely favour box, I do have a template/instructions for this box and if you would like a copy you can email me on fairyqueen1980@gmail.com I will be happy to email you back. (Just add FAVOUR BOX to the subject line).I will try and send out emails over the weekend.


Inside the box I have stamped using the Sugar and Spice Clear Wedding Stamps. Each set contains 14 clear stamps perfect for those special day invites.

From this set I used the 'Thank you' and the 'wedding' stamps, I also used the large flower stamp from the Scribble flower set and one of the quotes from the quote set. I used scraps of patterned paper and gems to decorate the inside of the box. You can add embellishments and wording to suit your own taste. The Alphabet stamp set matches the wedding stamps so you use this set to add names to your boxes. I used the Thank you stamp again on a tag for the top of the box. All you have to do then is add your favours! ( I think I will add chocolates to mine )

To match this box I made an invite using the Wedding stamps again. This time I used the 'Wedding' and 'Invitation' stamps. You could change this to make a whole range of stationary, like I have for the menu. This lovely set contains stamps to create 'Save the date' cards, 'evening invites' and 'RSVP' cards so the possibilities are endless!




Again if you would like info on the invites or box feel free to email me
