Cards I Made or Finished Today!

My sister is getting married on the beach in Cape Hatteras, NC next month.  Today I made her a card.  I scraplifted an idea from Cousley over on the Scrapbook.com galleries.  

The marquee shape is from Elegant Edges.  The sand dollar is from Life is a Beach, and the shells are from Paper Doll Dress Up (it's actually from the mermaid's outfit!)  I used colored pencils to accent the shapes, and foam adhesive to pop them up.  Congratulations is from Holiday Cakes.  I embossed the background using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The punch is Martha Stewart Deco Fan.  The ribbon is just some from my stash.  On the inside I used another marquee shape in ivory for the card message.  I also made a pocket to add gift cards.

The second card is one from my stash, I can't exactly remember how long ago I made it.  It's a very simple card.  I added the yellow "ribbon" (not sure what you'd really call it) to make it look a little more finished.  I have a box of cards so that if I need a quick card I have a few to choose from.  I really didn't have much time today to craft, so this was perfect.

Worked on my Wedding Scrapbook Again FINALLY!

I don't have any pictures to post, but I finished 2 layouts for my wedding scrapbook this weekend!  This has been the hardest project for me to finish, which I guess explains why I'm on year 6.....

All of the engagement/dating, wedding, and reception sections are done, I've just been fighting with the honeymoon pages.  This weekend I finally had some free time to plan!  I loosely sketched out the pages, found the perfect pictures to use, and finished two layouts!  It doesn't sound like much, but I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere.  I'm hoping to find some extra time this weekend to work on the pages again.
