Decorate to Celebrate #45 - Wedding/Engagement

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a great week!! It's time for a Decorate to Celebrate challenge :)


For Challenge #45, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a wedding or engagement party or event!! Let's celebrate everything wonderful about saying "I DO!" with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my project, I created a banner that can be used for either a wedding or engagement party. The hearts are Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts and Classic Hearts. The black paper is from The Paper Studio and the white is heavy weight cardstock from Canvas Corp. The letters were traced on Tim Holtz Idea-ology clear mask sheet and cut out. The hearts were inked with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose, Barn Door and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Each heart was stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp in Fired Brick. The mask was removed from the letters and they were outlined with a Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Marker and adorned with gems. Two holes were punched in each heart with a Crop-a-Dile and fitted with eyelets for the hemp fiber.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Dl.Art Thankful Thursday - Linky Party
  2. Sunday Funday #6 - Linky Party
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Wedding/Engagement project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

  32. My sweetest friend, this is such a gorgeous banner! I love its sweetness... the precious flowy bows and delicate scalloped edges of the hearts. It's absolutely perfect for an engagement or wedding! You did an amazing job with the inking (as always) and the letters are fantastic. A crop-o-dile is one of those things that I often kick myself for never purchasing. Gosh, everything about this banner is just lovely. Another masterpiece from your creative spirit! :o) Stunning work, my dear friend! I hope you're having a beautiful day. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
