UStamp with Dawn and Friends World Showcase Blog Hop




Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop.
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Nancy's Frequently Dialed Numbers phone book. She always has such fabulous ideas!
If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.

For the showcase, I decided to use a project that I created as a bridal shower gift for my future sister-in-law using a shadow box.   Knowing how much they enjoy photos, I thought I would help them capture a wonderful memory and give them something they could cherish for many years to come.


Using the Lap of Luxury Designer Series paper, I created a 12 x 12 scrapbook page to showcase their engagement picture.  The picture is attached with dotto adhesive so that they are able to remove it and replace it with another photo if they chose to do so.

Instead of using Concord Crush, which is an element of the Lap of Luxury Designer Series paper, I substituted Perfect Plum so that it would more accurately match their wedding color.
 
 
Then, I made a card to go with the gift using the Love and Care hostess level 2 stamp set that is in the Summer Mini catalog and continued to use the Fun Flowers and antique brads.


On the top note, I added a quote from their wedding announcement along with their names and wedding date and also added some die cut flowers and lots of Vanilla Smooch shimmer mist and sponging.  And of course I had to add some Victoria Crochet trim ribbon, basic pearls and antique brads - some of my favorite things!


Aren't these little trinket keys awesome?

I like your project, but I really love that photo! The dark edges really set the people off. I also love any project that uses the Lap of Luxury Paper. TFS.

This is stunning! I didn't care much for that DSP...but you made me want it since my one of my wedding colors was a lighter purple. So glad to see it looks gorgeous with the light purple instead of the dark. LOVE IT!
