New Bella Blvd Cards

Check out Bella Blvd for all kinds of awesome cards.

I was playing around with the Sophisticates Collection. I made two cards that could be used for Valentine's Day (which is right around the corner) A wedding or an Anniversary! I love making cards that can be used for different occasions.
I love using the tall tags! I tied some white embroidery floss around it and used pop dots.
I sewed on a white flower button on the bottom of the card to add a little dimension.

The sprinkles & lace papers are perfect to add a cute or classy look to any project.
I used pop dots on each layer to really add dimension. And of course inked the edges! :)
It is a little hard to see in the pictures, but I used the We R Sew Easy (hearts) tool on the bottom of the card & used white embroidery floss to stitch the hearts. I love stitching on projects!
I used one of the journaling squares from the Short Stories page in the Sophisticates line for the inside of the card. I also added a simple heart from a punch. The little "Love you" sticker is from the Sophisticates Miniatures Family Sticker & I used a black brad.
Be sure to go over to Bella Blvd's blog to see the rest of Cards on Thursday!

Best Wishes to another Beautiful & Groom

I've been friends with the Jones' girls for over 20 years. My last lil Jones girl got married on Saturday December 3rd. (*Side Note: I love having a wedding in December when I'm doing a December Daily Scrapbook*)

It was a nice day, a little rain in the morning, cold, but no snow...which is amazing. In Wisconsin we tend to have a big snowstorm the first weekend in December.

The church was beautiful with the candles & poinsettias! The girls wore black & white dresses. I liked that the bride had the bridesmaids wear different dresses. They went to different department stores and picked what looked good on each girl.

The reception was at an up & coming warehouse in Downtown Milwaukee. It was completely bare. They had to rent everything & decorate it themselves. It was gorgeous! The food was delicious! Plus instead of having a DJ, they had a live Band from Madison, Wisconsin. It was a trio & they were Awesome!

It was a wonderful day and I think the Bride said it best, "The Best Day Ever!"

Congratulations to Sarah & Jake! xoxo
