CCG Challenge Page 206

Oh my the colors they picked this time round were AMAZING! I really enjoyed this challenge. The photo on this page is just set in there. I am still waiting for a photo from a friend who recently got married in a lovely vintage type gown which actually should match these colors nicely. So, I expect maybe she'll also want to add some journalling too in her own hand. This should make a nice little framed page for her wall.

Each little item I placed in my flower cluster have meaning. As part of the challenge they asked that we use a piece of wood. I used a grapevine and also the little dress form (yet more of Tink's stash). The little best friends heart is also out of wood. The dress form symbolizes the special dress my friend's hubby purchased for her for their special day. The Best Friends wood piece describes words she used to describe their relationship. The little white sparkle angel wings are also a symbol that are special to her. Of course, I also used a vintage handkerchief I had cut in half as the other half was damaged (something old?) and the hat pins are not only fun, but I used a really old crystal on one of them. I was going for the old look. The title is also something she used to refer to her hubby.

The items I used on this page are as follows: 

  • Quick Quotes Ribbon (white & black stripe) from Tink's Stash
  • Anna Griffin Clear Paper
  • Stampin' Up White Ribbon
  • Black Close to My Heart sandable paper
  • Vintage Lace Hankie
  • Vintage crystal bead
  • stick pins
  • tattered leather glimmermist


  1. I love this page, Mitra. Really makes you stop and look at EVERY little thing. Glad you found a good use for those vintage hankies that you had shown me. SUPER JOB

  2. Wow, you certainly achieved the old look you where going for, this is stunning, love how all the elements have come together, you will have to let me know how you did the, I think TH die flower, was that what you used the glimmer mist on, have just bought some, do you put it in a spritzer bottle or just paint straight on? Love the pic, have a great week take care, Doreen x

  3. This looks so lovely. The stamping, the flowers, that gorgeous photo and the vintage hanky is an awesome touch.

  4. Loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee this!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeee that you used the handkerchief and loveeeeeeeeee the dress form and flowers!! GORGEOUS! :):):):):):):):):):):)

  5. Hey Tink! I promise to do a tutorial on glimmermist when I get back. I made the coolest ribbon flowers with some the other day that I think you'll love. I know you like dimension on your pages too. I actually used the glimmermist on the background to give it that splashy look. I took out the spray thingie and FLICKED it over the page. But, you can use it for a variety of different things. On my roses, I got a nice affect of colors blending into other colors. The TH flower was actually done using sandable paper. It's awesome stuff. So, a white core and you sand the edges. Let me know if you want some and I'll have a package heading your way shortly.

  6. The colors are fantastic and the dress form is PERFECT! Much love went into this page for sure!

  7. I love that everything on this layout has special meaning. So love the old hankie and those gorgeous flowers. I think that your friend is going to be thrilled to have a framable piece for one of her wedding photies.. :)
