I love it when a project comes together the way I see it in my head!! I struggled at first to figure out a “milestone” to document, but I realized how extremely important 20 years of marriage has been to me and my family. I came from a divorced home, so I wasn't sure what a “long-lasting” marriage looked like. I feel extremely blessed and thankful to have been a young bride and continue to have the gift of sharing my life with this man of mine! :)
My starting point was the ever popular lyric from the The Lumineers' song…"I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart.“ I cut it out on white card stock using my Silhouette Cameo and a free font from dafont.com called ”Rabbit on the Moon“–sometimes a font is so whimsical you can't help but download it and use it! I then backed the cut out lyric with patterned paper from Studio Calico's Serendipity collection that was covered with the constellation vellum from the new Atlantic collection.
I loved layering various papers and elements while continuing to emphasize the love theme throughout. I wanted to keep the colors in my layout soft to complement the feeling of contentment in our candid black and white photo.
I also created a pocket from the Studio Calico vellum to house my journaling. I cut it to size, then sewed the edges. I used a 1” circle punch to notch out the top of the pocket.
The new colored arrow clips from Freckled Fawn served as perfect points to my title/lyric and photo while also framing typed words.
I look forward to spending (at least) another 20+ years with him!! :)
Thanks for looking!! Don't forget to celebrate the special milestones and people in your life!
