The Creating Blog Hops Cafe Wedding/Anniversary May Blog Hop

Happy Saturday
Welcome to this month's blog hop
The Creating Blog Hops Café

This month's theme is... Wedding or Anniversary. We have made some wonderful projects to share with you and to give some inspiration for those upcoming summer weddings.

Our Hostess for this hop is...

Our wonderful Sponsor for this month's hop is...

Alicia is giving one lucky person a wonderful
wedding themed page kit from Mambi.

So, sit back and grab yourself a Latte' as we dare to amaze you with our projects.

I made today's project in a class from Clear scraps at Great Lakes Mega Meet earlier this month.  I took the class knowing my recent wedding photos would be used!  I am going to punch holes in them and string a black ribbon for hanging.  I am creating a wall of our wedding photos including the one everyone signed at our reception.

I am pretty sure we used a My Mind's eye collection.

Here's my double page layout:

Here's the class example:


Destination 12x12 Acrylic Layout
Instructor: Susan Frase
Sponsored by: Clear Scraps
Clear Scraps has put together this beautiful double page 12x12 acrylic layout class
Special requirements: 
3 N 1 adhesive both by Beacon (You must have a solvent based adhesive) and foam dots. 

As you can see I changed it up a bit once I got home and finished the project. I added some 3-D flowers since this will be a wall hanging. I put the date in a different place and used different stickers.
One of the best tips for using the acrylic sheets was to outline the edge with a paint pen!  It really makes it stand out.  I loved working with the acrylic and purchased several more sheets in their booth.  I can't wait to play more!
