Michelle's wedding

 My sister and her husband had a beautiful wedding back in August of 2009. That's right, this is  my last 2009 layout! woohoo. I am so pleased with the way this turned out. I really wanted to showcase so many beautiful photos from their big day, it was hard to choose just a few!

Details: Green paper is Parakeet by Bazzill Basics and was used in a lot of my sister's wedding accents. The flowers are leftover from making place cards. They are from the bridal line at Michaels. The yellow letters are Thickers in Vera by American Crafts.

Poinsettia Wreath

I saw an idea for a wreath like this in a Holiday Crafts magazine. Their example used an old sweater as the base, I used green ribbon instead. I made a cut file for the poinsettia flowers and cut them out on SCAL at a height of 4, 3, and 2.25 inches. I then overlapped two flowers either of the same size or two of different sizes. I then stuck them on using a pin. I thought the plain red pins were lacking, so I added some red Stickles. Cutting felt on your Cricut is way easier than I feared.

If you'd like me to share the cut file with you or know more about cutting felt on your Cricut, just ask!

Chris's 27th Birthday

For Chris's 27th birthday we went to Nutty Brown Cafe for dinner. It was quite tasty. I also made him a layered German chocolate cake (his favorite). That particular day, even though we no longer live in our birth state of IL, we got some ice in TX. It was appropriately miserable for a January birthday.

Details: Paper is Novel from Basic Grey's Offbeat line. The yellow letters are Thickers in the color Vera by American Crafts.

Elizabeth's Stationery

I don't think Elizabeth reads this blog, but if you do B, stop reading now if you don't want to spoil your Christmas gift...

Elizabeth is the only person that has asked for a third set of stationery. You can see her other sets here and here. When I first met her she went by Betsy (she was 12) as she got older she wanted to go by Elizabeth, but most of her family calls her Bee. So this set I decided to do as "A note from Bee". I hope she likes them.

Details: Envelopes are size A2 in Grape from Paper Source. A note from was written out in stamps by Hero Arts. The Bee stamp is also from Paper Source.
