Celebrating the first wedding anniversary

Ahh that totally got you thinking! No not for me but I have been asked about using paper to create a gift for a first wedding anniversary present  & the colour red. As I am teaching this requestor how to make a mini squash album at an upcoming event I've used that technique. Well I hope this is what Mae was thinking of & hopefully she can visualise how it all folds in & out concertina-like to create a wee album. All it needs now is for her to add her own words & photos. I've stuck on the wee hearts & embellishments with Dotto (a removable adhesive - so she can remove them or re-position where she likes). I've also clear embossed the large heart on the front cover so it's lovely & shiny. I've used 8x8" squares - so this is a bigger model than I usually create.


Stamp set: Baroque Motifs, A Happy Heart
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Versamark
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red Patterns DSP
Other: Clear embossing powder, sponge dauber, Heart to Heart punch, Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, anywhere glue stick (all the layers have been stuck down with this), Dotto removable adhesive

Well thank goodness you hadn't got married on the quiet as I want to be a bridesmaid ... never been one!!! So remember to keep me in mind if ever you contemplate tying the knot.

I know Mae will love the album - it looks great.
