No One Does a Wedding Like a FREAK!!

Okay, now that I look at it, that blog post title is a bit bizarre ... but I'll bet it made ya smile!!! You should have just come from the blog of my good friend and fellow freak, Lisa Martz!! Ohmygosh!! Her "bride" and "groom" were AWESOME!!


As you can see, since 'tis the season, we are featuring wedding-ish (or is it wedding-y?) projects this month. I choose to use some of my brand-spankin'-soon-to-be-in-the-new-catty Paisley Petals DSP. I am LOVING this stuff!!



First off, I have this card, that would be great on a shower or wedding gift. It DOES have mui-many layers, but I guess that's kinda how I roll sometimes!! Something old?? "Together Forever" stamp set; Something new? Aforementioned Paisley Petals DSP; Something Borrowed? I borrowed this layout from MYSELF from a VERY old blog post!! Something blue?? Well, I'm not gonna insult your intelligence there ...


Next, I made this little wedding favor box. It's actually made from balsa wood. I just covered it with some of my fave new DSP, then rolled some little paper roses to embellish the top. That's my new favorite thing to do ... they aren't that hard to make, and they don't cost that much, either!! And what's a wedding favor box without ...

.. CHOCOLATE INSIDE??!!?? Oh man! I'm gonna hafta hide the bag of "leftovers" ... probably gonna hafta give it to my teenagers ... and my husband ... and my 22-year-old ... I could probably eat the WHOLE FREAKIN' BAG!! Wait!!! I could send some to JanTink!!! Ohhhh Jaaaaa-aaaaan!??!!


Which brings me to my last little project ... a thank you card for the bride and groom. Remember when this criss-cross cards were all the "rage" a few years back? I modified this a little bit. Instead of a standard "A2" size, this is actually 4.25" square.
