Our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary Scrapbook Page using the Frosted Floral Suite

I hope you are all enjoying the festivities of the season and the final countdown to Christmas – can you believe it is just 1 week away??! I feel totally unprepared but somehow the tree is up, the presents are wrapped and the cards have all been sent! I’ve no idea how it all got done but I’m so glad everything appears to be on schedule for now.

Today is a very special day for my husband Ben and I as we are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. Christmas has always been my favourite time of year so it seemed fitting to have a wedding to match. Some people say their wedding day is a bit of a blur, but I remember every detail of my wedding as though it happened yesterday. In fact, I can’t understand where the last 10 years have gone!

I wanted to make a 10 year anniversary scrapbook page to mark this milestone in our lives – the photos are of us then and now. And the Frosted Floral suite was the perfect way to adorn the page. I have loved using every part of this gorgeous suite.

The great news is the First Frost stamp and die set will carry over to the next catalogue, but I will miss this beautiful Frosted Floral DSP so much. The colours of our wedding were red and gold for Christmas, so I used merry merlot for the mat layers and champagne foil as my chosen metallic foil paper. Gray Granite is prominent in the DSP and with the black and white photos, I thought champagne would be perfect with its warmer grey tones.

Of course, no scrapbook page (or any page for that matter) would be complete without a little Joyous Noel tranquil tide glimmer paper. I rarely buy products when they are retiring. but I must admit to stocking up on another pack of this stunning paper!

A lot has changed for us over the past 10 years – people have come into and gone out of our lives. The most important newcomer has been our gorgeous little boy Grayson who is now 20 months old. We feel so blessed to have him. Times have been testing, but our love for one another remains just the same.

Make it Metallic Scrapbooking Global Challenge

The August challenge for my Scrapbooking Global Group was ‘Make it Metallic’ and I decided it was time do something with these photos of my son’s first trip to the aquarium.

I cut the photos to 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and matted them on some copper foil sheets cut at 4″ x 4″.

Continuing the underwater theme, the Under the Sea framelits dies featured heavily in my design. I love the mesh net die and cut those from crumb cake cardstock before covering them in versamark and heat embossing them with silver and copper embossing powder. I did the same thing to the ‘fish’ letters so that they took on an antiquey look.

I then cut the accent pieces from silver and champagne foil sheets.

The embellishments were a mix of retired stash and basic Sahara sand sequins.

This yellow daffodil delight background is a bit of a break from my usual white layout. White is still more me, but I liked the fun element to this layout and colourway – much better suited to my boy! xx

Sunshine Wishes

I needed to make an engagement card so I reached for my Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies. The font of the ‘congrats’ die is just beautiful and I decided to die cut the pieces from some of the champagne foil sheets in the Autumn/winter catty for an understated yet elegant look. I will be stocking up on lots of this stunning cardstock before it retires!

The wood background comes from the wood stack designer series paper stack – how versatile is this paper?! It’s great for Christmas cards, works perfectly with the wood crate framelits dies and even creates a pretty backdrop for this engagement card – love it 😍 The dsp and foil sheets did all the work for me on this card, so I used some fresh fig sheer ribbon, berry burst woven ribbon and powder pink shimmer ribbon to add colour, layered with copper trim for contrast and texture. A few scattered metallic enamel shapes and you have yourself a simple but pretty engagement card!
