Finally . . . The Perfect Dress Layout

Another week has come and gone, and two great things are happening -- it's Friday, and it's time for another die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  There's a great announcement over there about a new card sketch team.  Make sure you check it out!  And, today the design team is revealing projects with the theme of "creative, hidden tag."  It was a fun challenge for me.  I decided to do a scrapbook page of dress shopping for our daughter's wedding gown.  These pictures are from 2008!  Wow, where has the time gone!?!  Here are the details:

Card Stock:  American Crafts, Core'dinations, Bazzill
Patterned Papers:  DCWV
"Finally . . .":  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/4"
Label behind pictures/title:  Elegant Edges cut at 8" using the "Book" feature.  I thought this was perfect for a background for the photos.
Black border:  Bazzill Just the Edge
White border:  Martha Stewart border punch with tiny pearls added
Scalloped circle:  Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Die embossed in my Cuttlebug; circle:  George Cricut cartridge cut at 3 3/4" and then shadowed
"Perfect Dress":  Cuttlebug Baby Face font
Dress w/tag:  Sweethearts Cricut cartridge cut at 3 1/2" -- I cut three layers of this cut and the shadow.  The top layer has the embossing for the skirt.  I cut another layer using the blackout feature and cut a slit in it.  I then cut the third layer and cut the bottom half down to the size of a tag.  The tag slides into the slit that I cut to hold it.
Flowers:  Prima and Recollections with a button added to the red flower as a center
Flourish:  Sizzlit die
Plastic Dress/Wedding Bells Embellishments:  Unknown; purchased in a package of wedding buttons and embellishments at least 5 years ago
Hearts:  Punch
Arrows:  Cuttlebug dies

Thanks for taking the time to comment.  If you have questions, let me know.  Have a blessed, crafty day!
