Wedding Layout using Christmas papers (Pion/2Crafty/Helmar)

The Pion Design Silent Night collection is so versatile and can be used for so many kinds of projects. Here I am featuring a layout of my Mother and her Father on her wedding day. It was my parent's 40th year anniversary on September 30th and my Mother's 60th birthday is just around the corner on December 31st. Yup my dad has it very easy to remember... the last day of each month, LOL.

I have enhanced this layout with a lot of 2Crafty chipboard (elise dress form, parisian border and title).

I have simply used gesso and various brown inks to finish my chipboard - easy and economical!

Here is a close-up of the layered dress form chipboard - sooo love this piece!

I added a lot of pretty white flowers left over from various Swirlydoos kits.

The inspiration for this layout came from my friend Nadia Cannizzo - look at this gorgeous sketch of hers!

Please note: that all of these projects were created with the special help of various Helmar Adhesives - especially my two favorites: the Premium Craft glue for paper and chipboard, and 450 Quick Dry for embellishments/fabric. All Helmar products can be purchased directly at:
http://helmarusa.com or http://helmar.com.au (if you do not have a local shop that carries the products).

I love this! I have been scouring the net looking for wedding themed paper for two more wedding mini's I'll be making. I love how you've done your layout, I never would have realized it's Christmas paper!

Can you tell me what is behind the dress form? The lovely lacy look square? It that a cut file? Or, is that a chipboard piece? If chipboard how heavy is it? Would it work in a mini? LOVE the look of it! So glad I found your blog.
