We were all asked to take a home made ornament to my nieces’ wedding which I thought was a lovely idea for December wedding!
I made a trio of small hearts:
The largest features Gemma and Steve’s initials which I cut electonically:
The medium heart was made with the inside negative waste left over from cutting the first and smallest heart! I added glitter so they have a little sparkle.
I attached lace to the smallest heart. All the ribbons and large pearls were attached using my Stix2 hot glue gun. The hearts were die cut four times and layered to make them sturdy.
I used this Elizabeth Craft Designs Twisted Hearts die set which I’ll be able to use on some of the wedding layouts too!
Sarah made this sweet bird house. The roof tiles were all hand cut and layered.
My ornaments hanging on the tree:
I didn’t know this was being taken!
I thought I would share the wedding card I made for my lovely niece Gemma and her new husband Steve.
I used the November card club design with wedding themed patterned papers from my stash:
I backed the wedding dress with silver glitter paper, and added pearls to embellish.
The wedding couple die is a really good size and cerates the focal point of interest on the card. It cut beautifully even though the dress is very detailed.
The die cut “Lets Celebrate Today” has been trimmed with pearls. The sentiment is from a lovely Woodware greeting stamp set designed by Jane Gill.
The wedding on Saturday was such a wonderful day and everything was so perfect. My niece and her husband were so happy. Even the snow held off until Sunday morning!
This month we are using the delightful Vintage Springtime collection – perfect for chasing away the winter blues.

PS I have driven to A Maze of Memories today. The roads around Thame are clear but at the moment there is a lot of snowy slush at Woodway Farm itself. I had no problems getting there from Thame or parking outside. I’ll update tomorrow again however.
I have another good idea to share from Lous Rees who has completed her scrap club challenge layout using her free tape.
Lous has created square borders and alternatively stitched or flaked them!
The stitching is so even, and all the lines are perfectly straight. Great work Lous!
We were treated to some yummy cakes today in the craft room. Janet Dell bought in a lemon drizzle and cup cakes, and Marilyn Cassford made this fabulous ginger and caramel cake.
It tasted as delicious as it looks!
Thank you so much ladies. We all enjoyed our unexpected treats.
