Their Special Day…

Cathi & Brian #1

Cathi & Brian #2

One of the Big surprises of the summer was the wedding of my sweet niece and her new husband.

I am so happy for them.  They make a great couple and they look so cute together. 

My last design team assignment for The Paper Forest was Simple Stories:  The Story of Us.

Once I saw the collection I knew exactly what pictures I wanted to use.

I appreciate my niece sharing her photo’s and allowing me to scrapbook her special day.

The Bride and Groom Place setting  is a cute way to identify where the bride and groom will sit for dinner!

  1. Draw, trace or print the outlines of a dress and bow tie on to the transfer paper, then stick the paper to a sheet of Smoothfoam.
  2. Cut out the images with the foam cutter, through the transfer paper.
  3. Remove the transfer paper and sand the edges of the foam as needed. Paint the bow tie black and paint the dress white.
  4. Cut the Smoothfoam ball in half then paint one half black and paint the other half white.
  5. After the paint is dry, coat each piece with Mod Podge (gloss finish).
  6. Embellish the surface of the dress and ball with glitter glue for extra sparkle.
  7. Cut each dowel to the appropriate size so the markers are the same height as shown. Paint the dowels with a gold paint pen and insert into the foam, connecting each piece to its base.
  8. Embellish each marker with stickers and bling.
