June Scrapbook Club Layout

My Scrapbook Club ladies wanted to play with the Smooch Spritz and Presto Patterns designer series paper this month, so we thought a wedding layout would be perfect!  I wanted to keep the page pretty neutral since everyone's wedding colours are different, so I decided to use Whisper White and Very Vanilla as the base colours, with a splash of gold (or silver if they choose). 
I apologize for the photo quality - the lighting in our apartment isn't that great!  It looks a lot better in real life - very shimmery and elegant!  (I can't wait to move into our new house!)

Anyway, I started with Whisper White as the base, and I cut some strips of Presto Patterns and sponged them with Blush Blossom ink (I thought the ladies could sponge their wedding colour ink instead if they wanted to tie it in with their photos).  Then there is a strip of Vanilla with a Brushed Gold border (punched with the eyelet border punch).  I used the Beautiful Butterflies die with my Big Shot to cut the butterfly out of Whisper White, then embossed the flourish stamp from Elements of Style in gold embossing powder on it. Then I sprayed it with Vanilla Smooch Spritz.  A creamy half-pearl from the Pretties kit finished the butterfly.

The title is from the "Peace, Love, Joy" decorative strip die with the Big Shot - I just cut the word "Love" out of it (in Brushed Gold cardstock).  I hung a Vintage Tag on it with the date of my wedding on it.  The tag is cut from Whisper White with the scallop border corner punch for the corners.  I sprayed it with the gold Smooch Spritz and added a knot of Organdy ribbon at the top.

Should be a fun evening with the ladies!  I'm really enjoying my Scrapbook Club this year!  Such a fun group of ladies! 

Blessings to you,
