H&M Stamps April Blog Hop!!

It's that time again! Spring is in the air and that brings us a quickly approaching appreciation for our mother's AND weddings!!! With that said, the theme of this hop are Mother's Day and Wedding created projects using the latest release of stamps that you can view over at H&M Stamps. If you have come to my site directly, make sure to hop on over to the beginning at Carolina's blog!

So I decided to go with the wedding theme, and make a cute little wedding planner! Now, this box is completely CASEd from Jackie Topa's that you can download here. Her's is called the Stationary box and I just adapted it to make it more wedding themed. :) Without further ado, here we gooooo!


Here's the outside. I kept it simple with wide satin ribbon and a heart charm.

And the inside with the lid off.




The top area of the box fits A2 cards (thank you cards, or cards received, etc) and the slot right below it could be used to store receipts, business cards, or the like. The lower panel has a small notebook for jotting down notes, a holder for a pen, and the small little box to the right can hold stamps, a to do list, or whatever your heart desires!

Here are a couple close-ups for detail. :)


And the wedding dress. I colored with Prismacolors and odorless mineral spirits for blending. I also added liquid pearls for the necklace and earrings and Stardust Stickles accents on her dress and veil.


I hope you liked it!! One of my husband's co-workers is getting married this summer and I may just gift this over (she may have to tear it from my fingers though.) LOL!

I used the stamp set Outdoor Fairy Tale Wedding. This stamp set is just GORGEOUS! You get 20 unique images for only $17!! Remember the saying from Jerry McGuire, "You had me at hello"?? It's in there!!! Ok, I'll stop gushing now. :) Make sure you hop on over to Suzanne's blog and leave some love. Leave some love here too though...I likey that!

Thanks for stopping by and getting.... YOU KNOW!!

THUD...simply adorable! Love the idea and all the wonderful dp and colors you went with to creat such a beauty! If you manage to part with it, I'm sure your husband's co-worker is going to treasure it for years to come.

Donna Baker said...

what a keepsake! A whole lotta love went into making that. cute set. the dress in the mirror reminds me of the first big book I read it was nearly 1,000 pages about a bride who looked into an old mirror and was transported to live as her grandmother on the eve of her wedding, it was a great novel! It was called The Mirror by Marilyn Milhiser.
