To the one I laugh with...wedding layout with Quick Quotes Celebrate
Good morning Quick Quotes readers! Alicia here today with more wedding photos, I have created a double page layout and I used the beautiful and limited Celebrate paper this time. I was first inspired by the vellum wedding quote "A Toast". I knew I had some lovely pictures of the toast at my wedding to use and I went from there...
The quote had some beautiful butterflies on it but I wanted to make them pop. I took a water pen and dabbed it in my Bloody Mary PowderPuff and my Rusty Nail PowderPuff inks and colored on the back of the vellum behind the butterflies. I tried to stay in the lines but because I was coloring from behind any little mistakes are behind the black lines and won't show. I also used adhesive under the colored areas and tucked the top under the ribbon for a secure but unnoticeable adhesion.
I used my Cricut and cut some butterflies out of the Celebrate paper. Of course, every piece was inked generously with my Powder Puff chalks. I also had some of the wide Cranberry Grosgrain ribbon that matched the Celebrate paper perfectly! It was so wide I thought it looked good as a title ribbon across the top of the layout. I took the title from the quote and cut it with my Cricut. I wanted a different font for at least one word. I found this large foam "laugh" stamp and used Bloody Mary PowderPuff ink to stamp it. I notched the ends of the ribbon and still had a bit left over.
I created some folded ribbons with the remainder and notched those ends and topped with one of my butterflies. I added a few gems and all done! A simple but elegant layout!
