It’s been quite a while that I’ve posted anything. To make it short, on May 27th I lost my dear Aunt Mary to Lupus. It was a difficult month but a blessing at the same time. I say blessing because not many have the “gift” to say good-bye to a love one and to let them know how much they love them and how they were blessed to have them in their life. Aunt Mary was not only able to spend time with her husband, children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren but also with nieces, nephews & sisters and brother, and friends.
During her last week, I spend most of my time at her home helping the family. The stories I heard from neighbors & friends about her generosity and how she helped them when there was no one else to help them and how she gave of herself to them — not just what she did but her time. I could write about her — volumes of books — and still never be able to tell all about her and who she was. I will miss her terribly but I am blessed that I had the opportunity to have had a wonderful, beautiful (inside & out) and awesome Aunt.
So that was my month of May. And now, it’s time for me to come back to the stamping world. This week’s theme at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Wedding items and my task to create wedding favors.
I love working with vellum and had not done much with it for quite some time. So I decided to color my cardstock vellum with Marina Mist and then use a textured impressions embossing folder to give texture to the vellum. Using the Sizzix dies(Pillow Box and the Big Z Candy Wrapper), I created two wedding favors.
I also created a picture frame (“Ready to Make” canvas frame) which I embossed simply in gold. This can be used as a wonderful wedding favor.
I hope you enjoy these projects. Have a wonderful week.
