Wedding Bells are Ringing

My recent project is to finally get this wedding done.
This is my little side kick. Yep, she is a lap dog. Hiccup (aka; The Head, Sheila) was my son's dog (I saw her first) and when he went into the Army she came to live with us. Eventually he just gave her to me because she is so attached and set in her ways. When he comes out we will go looking for another dog/puppy for him. Oh....almost forgot, that is the love of my life she is sitting husband Jerry. I know, the glare you can barely see him. It is out of the plastic but it is a glossy picture.

On this page I used cartridges Lyrical Letters and Home Accents. I also used Stickels and a SVG I made of the pocket watch which I will share as soon as I figure how to...LOL. ( was my first svg I made and took me close to a month!)

I used svg files from Paulo to make the desk-table and chair. The background lattice I downloaded from the SVG Cuts Forum. (There is a question as to who's file this is so if your interested you need to go there to get it.) The "floor" is made from the pedals that the flower girl threw and the little pink roses at the top were what I used on the flower girl's basket. The pink tulle is what I used to put the wedding candy in to put under the wedding cake. On the table is the picture of the wedding bouquet and the real ribbons coming out of it which is the ribbons I used when I made the bouquet. Next to that is two boutonnieres which are my ill attempt at making roses using Penny Duncan's method/files. (Did I ever tell you I am rose challenged?)

I used some white flowers I bought off eBay and colored them using different methods including Perfect Pearl and chalks. The leaves, cake, bells and vines I used several different cartridges including Home Accents, and Sweethearts. The pearl spray are the ones I used in her bouquet and again I used the pink rose from when I made the flower girl's basket.

I used a film strips svg from Anna. I also used Sweethearts cartridge and some things I had from previous buys or swaps.

I used many Sweetheart and Accent Essentials cartridges on the next two pages.

 I used butterflies and lace that I had. Ribbon is from the bouquet and the background is wallpaper.
I used my CRI-Kits pens with their fonts on the 2nd page and Sweethearts cartridge for the heart.

I used Sweetheart cartridge, flowers from eBay, Perfect Pearls, Chalks, and some store bought rings and other embellishments.
 Now isn't she precious! This page has the pink bows from her basket and headpiece, pedals are chalked pink but really are white and it is the ones she threw. It is hard to see in the picture but the checkerboard bow matches the under layer of her dress. Leaves were cut on the Cricut then I used pinking shears on them and a hand cut stem. The fence is from My Community cartridge and the button in the middle of the flower say "Happy" and that is what we all were that day.

The next pages have some of the same elements in it. This lacy pearl ribbon is from the flower girl's basket.
I put a leaf over the face of the Bride's Maid as she does not want her photo shown for personal reasons.
I used my Fiskar punch and some sticker-like elements that I had for years (The green vines).

Now these next two pages I still did not finish. I don't like them, didn't from day one and I said I would change them but keep drawing a blank for them. They are too plain and don't go with the others. What would you do with them? The rings are from Sweethearts cartridge and fonts are from a cartridge (I think the frame around the hearts was on a cartridge too but I need to check) but the cake and bride and groom are store bought die cuts.

I used Sweethearts cartridge and ribbon. The bells are an svg file of Christmas Bells from Paulo.(A snip here and there with the scissors and now they are wedding bells ). The To Have & To Hold is an svg from Nancy.

I just want to point out to look closely at the 1st picture on the bottom. Right between their necks you see the JP and the expression on his face is hysterical , it looks as if he is say "oh". The kissing silhouette is from Brittany.

Again, sorry for the leaf but I am going to respect the wishes of the person and not show her face. I used the Heritage cartridge for the words, the flowers were store bought, the pearl spray from the bouquet, bottom ribbon to match the flower girl's dress, top ribbon is a sparkly one that I had.

I just had to do a fun page. What is wedding without humor? What is any day without any humor? 
No, he is not giving me the finger....look again. 
I used a couple of different cartridges including Sweethearts and My Community. The people were brushes that I made into SVG from Obsidian Dawn

I used my brads, cartridges and Stickels for the next two pages. I also did a method (though you can't tell in the picture but they are cute in person) where you cut circles, scrunch them up then unfold them. I don't remember where I saw this but I know I watches someone's video. When I find it I will update. 

The next two pages I used cartridges and the SCAL shapes in the swirl folder. The heart with the people in it on the 2nd page (first page heart was from the cartridge Sweethearts) is an svg file that was shared and I don't remember who made it but I find them I will update. I used Stickels, gems, watercolor paint for the flowers (they were white and I bought them from eBay). White satin that I stitched on for a background, transparencies for the big pictures. (The picture is on the transparency and is placed over the paper.) 
The spray of pearls on each side coming from the flowers were from the bouquet, the tulle in the top corner flower is from her veil, the pedal between the two bottom pictures is from the pedals the flower girl threw and on it is the words "I love you" which is what she said surrounded by silver for the ring she put on his finger.
