Here you are at Stop 7 in the Blog Bounce.  I chose Wedding as the theme to work  with.  I had ideas in my head I was eager to get on paper. 
So to start, I have an invitation.  I created the flaps for the opening with the largest of the Labels Collection Framelits Die.  The wording was created using
My Digital Studio.  This way I was able to incorporate a stamp image without stamping 200 times for actual invitations.  It is then tied shut with the
1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
Here are chair signs for the Bride and Groom's chairs at the head table.  They are made completely from paper using the Four Fold technique with the Top Note die.  They could also be mounted on a wooden plaque.  The image was created
in My Digital Studio.
I love how the scrapbook pages turned out.  They contain stock photos from a free site, so no, not family!  I used the Lattice Die turned 90 degrees to get the diamond shape.  There are some cut from Vellum overlapping the photo on the right.  The wording was all created in My Digital Studio.  I saw the Subway Art (on left page) on Pinterest and wanted to use that idea.  While it took lots of little text boxes to get all the different wording, it was very easy to create!
Lastly a favor box or confetti container.
I used 1 1/2 sections of the Petal Cone Bigz L Die to create the 3 sided box.
What's inside you ask?  lol 
All those little bits and pieces from cutting the Lattice die.

You could put candy in these for a favor at each place setting.  Have a basket
of them by the door for guests to take one home.  You can even use them at the church to hold the rice, or birdseed that the guests would toss as the happy couple leaves the church.
Thanks for stopping by!  Do bounce on over to Stampin' Addicts
and check out all the challenges going on there!  The Stamp Jam will start
at 9:00 am on Saturday, March 31st.
Happy stamping!
