Wedding Shadow Box

Last week I shared a tutorial for a wedding keepsake at 
  1. Using a computer’s Word Program (or something similar), create a text box that would be the
    same size as the photo for the frame. The text box can be formatted to include a border of lines
    or dashes. Next, select a font (Centeria Script Demo) and begin typing the information that is to
    be shared. Print a sample and make adjustments if necessary .
  2. Next, attach patterned paper over the pre-printed area with a small bit of adhesive at the top.
    Place the paper back into the printer and print.
  3. Trim the patterned paper down to size.
  4. Apply foam dots to the backs of the two corrugated silhouette shapes and attach to the top of
    the patterned paper as desired. Place inside of frame.
  5. Using a high tack adhesive, attach a paper doily to the top, back of the frame.
  6. Attach a flatback adhesive pearl to the center of a felt flower. Adhere flower to the center of a
    paper bow with a fabric glue or Glue Dot. Adhere bow to the paper doily, allowing the bow to rest
    on top of the frame.

This would make a sweet presentation on a guestbook signing table or amongst a 
cluster of photos of the couple.  With a few modifications, place setting markers for the wedding party
participants could be created as well!

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
