This layout I made for one of Deb’s challenges in


Yep, it is a Wedding Layout!!!!

You can scrap with any colours you like, any embellies you like, any title you like & of anybody’s wedding you like!

BUT………… you must use the Shabby Chic style.

Ok,…………… I like shabby chic

but to use it on the layout was like “Ok, how am I going to do that?”

So I visited one of my local stores called “Bella Chic”.

The sell shabby chic style furniture and other items. One visit and I was full of ideas.

Here is the description of my layout:

  1. I edited my SIL’s wedding photo using software into sepia and antique effects and printed it out (of course in Kmart)
  2. I then collected all coordinating PPs. The background paper is from Making Memories, I think,………I am not sure…… the other piece is from Basic Grey and one more die cut paper I had for a very long time.Then the white card stock. I distressed all of them using Tim Holtz’s Ranger Antique Linen ink and curled the edges.
  3. I then stitched them on to the background paper.
  4. I distressed the photo using “scissors distressing technique” and layered the photo on top of the coordinating papers.
  5. Flowers are from Green Tara and some misc flowers from my stash. They all had a shower of “Glimmer Mist Meadow Green”.All layered using double sided foam.I have also decorated the flowers with Kaiser bling black and lime green.
  6. Flourishes are from my stash. Stuck using double sided foam to pop it out and given some added interest using Kaiser pearls.
  7. Rub ons from Pink Paislee and decorated with Kaiser Pearls for added interest and as the decorated strings for the chandelier (inspiration from the chandelier I saw at my local shop).
  8. I used my die cuts from stash as the Chandeliers. I inked them with Brilliance Dew Drop Platinum Planet Ink and then heat embossed them using clear embossing powder. They are also decorated with kaiser Pearls to give the “lit” effect.
  9. The title is simple “Love” from K & Co blue awning chipboard stickers. and blue ribbon from my stash.

Enjoy the layout and closeups

And thanks for looking.
