SPCC: Forever You and Me!

Aaaaaah! Lovin' the teal-y, turquoisey color in the SPCC 7 this week! SPCC stands for Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combos and it's a new challenge blog! Yay Sam! I love these colors and have never thought about putting them all together (Bermuda Bay, Old Olive and Summer Sun) CLICK HERE to see the SPCC 7 colors and try them out!

I found this old wedding photo that would work with the challenge colors. The journaling reads:

This is the day it all started! The day my life changed forever.
It was exciting, happy, sad, terrifying, exhausting, surreal,
stressful, playful, joyous.......and perfect!
This is the day my family began!

I used some of my die cut vintage paper flowers! These are so fun to play with!

To make this flower, I took a drop of my Bermuda Bay re-inker and mixed it with a little water and lightly painted it on the flower. When dry, I then took a Versamark pad and pressed it onto the flower, making sure to cover the whole thing. Next, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on the flower and used a heating gun to set the glitter! Like I've said before, you HAVE to see this stuff in person to REALLY appreciate the DAZZLING of the diamonds! Before you glue down your flowers, take a pen or pencil and use it to curl the ends of the petals to give them some dimension!

To finish off the flower, I just added some Prima flowers for color and a cute white button! And there you have a fun flower for super dee duper CHEAP!

On this project I also used some rub-ons in Old Olive by Stampin' Up! and some of the NEW ribbon in the yummy color Bermuda Bay! The die cut sticker I used was from an old retired Simply Scrappin' Kit (Stampin' Up!) which says "Forever you and me" for the title. The kit also had this cool die cut frame which I placed BEHIND my matted photo!

For some added interest, I added this vintage book page which came in my Vintage Plum April Kit and some Peacock tulle from my VP May Kit! I used a distressing tool on the edges of my photo, the photo mat, and my 12 x 12 base page.
