ScrapMart: 20 Years!

Today my hubby and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary!! We have plans to go to our favorite French Bistro restaurant to pound some oysters and drink champagne :0)

We had a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony and a western style champagne luncheon at Chicago's Swissotel (overlooking Lake Michigan)...it was a LONG but WONDERFUL DAY!

20 Years of Love by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers and Stickers: Authentique Papers (Thankful Collection); Ink: Ranger; Bling: Want2Scrap; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S2-003 Fantastic Flourish Three, S2-020 Medallion Five, S5-152 Fancy Lattice, S5-123 Asian Accents and LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L (Black 3D Foam Squares)

We started with a morning wedding ceremony, a luncheon reception, a KARAOKE cocktail reception (younger crowd) and a post party in our two story honeymoon suite! Friends came from around the world so we made sure to spend time with them all.


In this page, I added NEW Spellbinders™ Die D-Lites™ S2-003 Fantastic Flourish Three and S2-020 Medallion Five die templates. This special collection are smaller in size but they have all the function you expect from Spellbinders - cut, emboss and stencil. Perfect for those smaller size projects up to larger sizes including my page. The price point you cannot beat and Scrap-mart.com made it hard to resist...just sayin'! Heehee!!


Next I pulled out these swirly bling from Want2Scrap - they were PERFECT in color and style. To fit the corner of the page, I cut them apart and placed as shown. I also used some bling around the circle (seen in finished picture).


I decided to use Authentique Paper's November Sketch Challenge for my page design - appropriate as I am using their Thankful Collection! LOL!! The circle die cut and the page edges were inked.



For the cluster, I cut/embossed S2-003 Fantastic Flourish Three die twice (a single die cut and one solid shape) and assembled. Stickers were used as my title and subtitle. Using Black 3D Foam Squares, I layered a few of the sticker pieces (a smaller circle was added later) and topped it with a little bling.

Here's another look at the page...


If I had to do it all over again, would do this in a heart beat! WOW, 20 YEARS!! Love ya, Hosho! Thanks for putting up with me ;0P

Thank YOU for stopping by!! xo
