Maggie Holmes Design Team : Wedding Guest Book

Hello lovely people! Last Saturday, we attended a beautiful & intimate wedding of our dearest friends, Joel & Celeste Dass. I wanted to create something with a touch of handmade for their wedding. And thought the best gift was to present them a wedding guest book where they can treasure each memories of the guests who attended their very special day. 

This book binding was gifted to me by a dear friend. It has been sitting on my shelf for the longest time. And I thought I should make use of it and to gift it to this special couple. It looked pretty bare and I decided to 'jazz' it up with Maggie Holmes latest collection called Open Book. This collection is perfect for many themes and wedding is one of them! 

I filled a few pages with photos and embellishments. They looked lovely!

As you could see, I kept each page simple with doilies, floral ephemera & sticker.

Before I leave you, here's a photo of us and the newly married couple, Mr & Mrs Dass! It was also Katelynn's first time becoming a flower girl for a wedding. She did an amazing job. We are so proud of our baby girl!

Thank you for coming by again! Have a great week ahead :)

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Lovely

Hello again!! It's great to be back to share with you simple tips on how I created my layout. 

Firstly, I created my background on a white cardstock with gelatos and gold mist.
You may refer to my gelatos tutorial HERE.

Once it is dried, I punched 10 pieces of 2" circles. I folded them into half. Pasted them side by side. Next, I sewed the at the middle of the half-folded circles.

To create a little dimension, I adhered foam tape in between of the folds.

Then, I added vellum circles in the middle along with the glitter dots.

Here's the completed layout. I added photo and added a lot of vellum shapes and stickers to complete it. It was such a fun layout to create!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Our Love Record

Hello again! It has been a while I last created a mini album & thought it's high time to create one! These anniversary photos were taken last 2 years. So glad that I finally printed them to create. Present to you, 'Our Love Record' mini album... 

 photo IMG_9957_zps8d6b075a.jpg

This mini is very simple to create. I used a few products from the Styleboard + a tiny bit from the Flea Market collection. Each page, you will see photo overlay, frames, chipboard, ephemera, stickers and vellum shapes. I used them repeatedly on each page, to create a cohesive look. The various size of papers, photos and embellishments of this album is what I love most. Once you are done, just gather all the pages together, punch a hole in the middle and bind it with a metal ring.

I didn't want to journal each page, so I decided to add one journal card in the middle of the album and wrote a short simple story.

For this & also the next page, I stuck the stickers onto a photo overlay. Added a piece of paper at the back of the overlay as a 'background paper'.

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Oh How I Love You

Hi there! Do you find yourself out of mojo sometimes or just don't know where to begin? When I am in that state, I will try to play around with embellishments and papers. I will layer my papers, add embellishments and reposition them as I go. This process will sometimes spark ideas or create a look that I never thought of doing so at the first place. This layout is exactly what I did.

I started of with the Pretty Palette paper and layer them along with the embellishments as I go. I decided to add doily at the end. I wasn't happy with just white cardstock as my background paper. So I cut the grid paper (the back of Pretty Palette paper) into 4 smaller pieces and layer onto each other in the middle. I also painted it white with gesso so that the grid lines do not stand out too much. Splattered some gold & mint green mists for an arty look. Lastly, I sewed at the edges of the journal paper. Finished it with doilies at the top and bottom of the layout.

I've been meaning to play along with the CREATIVE JUMPSTARTS with Stephanie Bryan Marcy Penner but didn't have the chance to do so. So this time round I decided to take up the challenge with these recipes : 5 patterned papers, 2 brads & 1 frame.

Here is my take...
