It's The Final (Wedding) Countdown!!

Hello everyone! Sorry for posting late but i have been quite busy today in one way or another! Last night i went out for my friend Iwonas hen do! We had a fab time, playing lots of games, having a ride in a limo, going to a casino and having a good dance to finish off the evening!! Here's a few pics of the evening. 1st pic is of the beautiful bride to be, we creatively made her a wedding dress out of white bin liners and toilet roll! Next pic is of me and my best friend Suzanne in the limo! Below that is a pic of me collecting mine and Suzannes £60 winnings from the slot machine and finally a pic of me and Iwona playing on the roulette table!

It was a really fun night, and not too long now to her 1st wedding (the UK one! They are also having a Polish wedding in October!! We're really looking forward to that one!)

Anyway along the theme of weddings, it seems that all of our friends are getting hitched at the moment! We have three weddings this year and another two now planned for 2012! I remember how excited i was counting down to our wedding so i decided to get crafty and make a wedding countdown project for the 2012 couples. I got the idea from Karla Anders blog (where she had created a similar birthday countdown project) Here they are:

I could resist the new 'Sprintime Vintage DSP' and the lovely 'Seaming Ribbon', the cardstock used is the versatile 'Crumb Cake' and i have used 'Crumb Cake', 'Night of Navy' and 'Rose Red' ink and the 'Just Perfect Alphabet' set to create the 'days until your wedding', the numbers have been created using  'Rose Red' and 'Baja Breeze' ink, depending on the project and the 'Schoolbook Serif Numbers' set, stamped on 'Whisper White Card Stock' and then mounted on 'Baja Breeze' or 'Night of Navy' card. I have backed the numbers with velcro (attached with red 'Sticky Strip') So the recipient can alter the numbers as they countdown to their big day!!

Here they are individually:


Material wise this project uses very little card etc, just a word of warning, they take a fair bit of time to make, as you have to stamp and mount A LOT of numbers!! (Approx 24 for each project in total!) If you wanted to speed up this project i guess you could do a weekly countdown! 

I'm so happy with the final product and will definately making some christmas countdowns! So if you would like one, put in your order! I'm thinking of using the 'Jolly Holidays' DSP, but can customise them for you if you would like!

Sorry for the mega long post! Thanks for visiting and i hope you come back to see more of my crafty creations soon!! xxx
