Flowers In Bloom...

Anyone else finding that this week is flying again? I can't believe that it's Wednesday already...I'm sure someone is speeding time up...there is just not enough hours in the day for me to get everything done!! When I was a little girl, school days seemed an eternity...why can't craft days be like this?

Thank you to everyone who left such a lovely comment on my post yesterday and as promised, here is part two of my wedding collection that I made for Craftwork Cards and CHA 2012! I'm really looking forward to hearing what you think about them...
This is a little place setting that I made, which once again has one of the gorgeous blooms that I built up from a few of the die cut flowers in the pad to create a 3D flower. I used the Candi Stamps to stamp the name of the person onto the Candi. Of course, if the name was longer the design would have to change!

I also made a small favour box from scratch, to accompany the collection. I thought this could be used for confetti, a slice of wedding cake...the possibilities are endless! The box itself is so easy to make, it's just a matter of getting the measurements and scorelines absolutely spot on...once that's done, easy peasy...just decorate it however you choose but I think these blooms just lend themselves to creating something really special and that would be treasured for a long, long time to come!

Once again, I've showed lots of pics to give you close ups of all the detail...
So, that's part two and I hope you like it... If you can check back tomorrow, and I would love it if you could, then I will be showing part three of this collection and you can see how everything comes together to make a very special wedding set.

Look forward to seeing you then...same time, same place!
Bye for now.
Love Emma xxx

It just gets better, doesn't? Almost makes me want to marry again so I can theme everything myself. I hope the message is reaching engaged couples and wedding planners out there - Emma is your girl when it comes to themed paper goods!

She also has a fab bird cage!

Actually our wedding (my #2 and The Best) was just 7 years ago, with a lovely theme. It was also my 50th birthday with a double celebration that Worked.

I made the invitations and place settings, followed by The Scrapbook Album that got me started ... but they were nothing like the set you've created, Emma.

...Emma, these makes are simply beautiful...your card is stunning and your center piece reminds me of a catherine wheel, very clever and the favour box is lush, the layers on your flowers with the candi must of taken an age to glue into place!...superb work as ever...Melx :)

I'm loving your close up photos - such clarity and great exposure. Do you know I've never yet made those little flowers from Candi!! but they look so gorgeous in your pics that I'm gonna have a go.

These are gorgeous again and the paper collection is to die for. You must have been so chuffed to have your cards at CHA wow!

I certainly know what you mean about being rushed off your feet. I can't believe I only have 2 weeks left of the summer holidays to get the kids ready for school before we go on holiday. My craft time has been non existant for a fair few weeks now :-(

Love looking at your creations, they inspire me to get making again.
