When I first got the Tie the Knot items I didn’t know what I was going to do with them because we only have a few photos from our big day. As I was flipping through the products it hit me use them with the Father Daughter Dance photos. After that the layout I created came together really quick. I blew the black and white photo of my husband and daughter up to 8x10 then trimmed it down one I had it in the position I wanted it. I love using oversized photos to make sure the photo remains the main focus of the layout. I used the Tie the Knot Tulle flowers packaging for the pattern paper at the bottom of the page. I wanted to give a little added pop so I punched out the pinked circles out of the same packaging then added pop dots and the Making Memories metal flowers. I also used Tie the Knot journaling book, borders, and mixed flowers on this page. I raided my stash for the Making Memories rub-on title, the numeral rub-ons, and the woven letter K.
After I was done with the layout I wanted to create something wedding related so I pushed a few ideas around a couple ideas didn’t work but these 2 cards did.
The cake card was so easy to make. I cut 2 pieces of the Tie the Knot paper that I wanted to use then I rounded the top corners. I layered the pieces and adhered them to the folded side of the card. I had the Tie the Knot journaling page cut out for another project and didn’t use it and to me it looks like a fancy cake top so that’s what it turned into. I had the 2 little ring embellishments and congratulations sticker in my stash. After everything is adhered down cut around the cake til you meet the folded side of the card on the bottom tier of the cake make sure you STOP cutting here otherwise you won’t have a card when your done. I added a tulle ribbon and the Tie the Knot gems to finish the card.
Card #2 was a quick throw together of scraps. The 2 journal pages are cut down, layered, and adhered to the card. I added a tag dangling from twine to the top. On the tag is a vintage doily flower, a Tie the Knot brad, and a flower that I made by scrunching up paper and shaping it into a flower. A few pearls and the card is finished.
Last and certainly not least when my girls saw the tulle flowers they wanted them as headbands and barrettes. That is just what I wanted to use them for too. They are really easy to make too! This one used a clip barrette, adhesive, and the tulle flower. Easy peasy and oh so cute!
