Wedding season is here...

...and the wedding themed May release from QuicKutz is here now too! Just because these are wedding themed, and just because I used them for wedding projects, doesn't mean they can't be used or pages other than wedding. Don't limit yourself! For example, the pears can be used for engagement, wedding or anniversary cards and layouts, or even twins pages. The dresses can be used for prom or dance pages, little girls dress-up layouts, or any formal page. This month's cute cute cute QK club die (did I mention it's super cute!) is adorable lips that would be cute on any love themed layout, Valentine card, or even an "I'm sorry- Let's kiss and make up" card.

This first layout is my niece and nephew-in-law (is that a real 'relation' or did I make that up?) on their wedding day last summer. First of all, are they a beautiful couple, or what?! For this page I used the small nesting scalloped oval and 2x2 dress from the May release, large scallop border die, and the monogram "A" is from the Fiesta font. I used the Eva collection from Basic Grey, rubons, Prima flowers, pebbles, and fancy brads by Making Memories, and computer generated text.

ETA:
In answer to the questions about flourishes and the monogramk the flourishes are all cardstock stickers from the Basic Grey Eva collection that match the pattern papers. The monogram 'box' is also a sticker from that collection with an oval behind it cut from one of the Spellbinders nesting ovals. The A is from the Fiesta font and the "Mr. Mrs." are printed on a clear label. Thanks, Gem, for asking about those. HTH

Close up of just them so you can see better how cute they are. LOL

To make it match Ali's wedding gown, I adorned the dress with stickles.

You might notice on the journaling tag, I used Sue's dry embossing technique to enhance the scallops just to give it an extra punch.

On this card, I used the large nesting scalloped oval and pears (these are so cute, aren't they) from this release, in addition to the hearts from the Flirt Spring gift set, Chick-a-Dee, Tangerine and Tangerine shadows alphabets. The border punch is Martha Stewart, doily lace.

For this layout the pears were the perfect accent to emphasize the title and the lips are just too cute not to incorporate someplace on this page! Journaling is the large nesting scalloped oval, title is Disco and Relax fonts, and flourish is from one of the damask dies. For a little added punch, I pierced the scallops on the oval with a large needle and outlined the journaling. I then outlined the page as well. Pattern papers for this page are Basic Grey, Mellow.
