Cor it's been a while. I used to run my own wedding stationery business but as I got more into Stampin' Up! I gave it up but i do still do the odd commission and when my sister asked me to make her Silver Wedding Anniversary Invitations I was more than happy to help. Especially when she told me the theme was to be a Cath Kidston style barbecue party.
I know I'm safe to post them now too as mine arrived in the post yesterday!!
OK - here we go. I've used Coastal Cabana card for the base with a layer of Crumb Cake (who knew!). the wording was all created on my PC and then I used some none Stampin' Up! papers ....don't shoot me for that, I had to match the theme and colours, punched out with our cute Bunting Punch. I sewed them all onto the card and yes I had to replace my sewing machine needle afterwards before adding punched flowers in Coastal Cabana, Pink Pirouette and Pistachio Pudding. Finished off with Self Adhesive Pearls.
For me there's always going to be something quite pleasing about seeing lots of things the same when they're all finished.
So much so that I re-arranged them several times and took LOADS of photos but luckily for you I'm only showing a few angles! Trust me you'd be here all day if I uploaded them all.
I had a super busy weekend too, I had a stall at the Great Notts Show on Sunday selling my fabric makes. Do you want to see a pic of my stand? Well I have to share it with you anyway!
I had an absolute blast!
