"You & Me" Layout for Donna Salazar Designs

Today, I have a wedding layout of our daughter, Elizabeth and her husband, Andrew, on their wedding day Featuring lots of Donna Salazar products. I've used the July Sketch N Color for inspiration.

"You & Me"

July Sketch-n-Color (rotated)

Tips and Techniques
I've created all the flowers using Donna's Spellbinder dies. A tutorial for my Open Lace Rose using her Grand Peony and Rose Creation dies can be found HERE. I've added a couple extra layers here, but the process is the same.

The smaller flowers are created with her Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies and Mix'd Media Stax 2 mulberry paper. 

I used Donna's Art Gone Wild Heart Applique stamp to heat emboss this pretty heart image on a die cut diamond.

I just love happy mistakes. I stamped this Lace Corner with Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The image faded into the background. I really wanted this image to show up, so I misted the squares with water, then spritzed with Donna's Sea Breeze Smooch Spritz and the embossed image now pops.

Normally I ink these sweet chipboard alphas, but love the way they show up on the page so beautifully in their natural state. 

Each of my squares is hand stitched around the edge and then distressed with Donna's Zutter Distrezz-it-All.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've been inspired to grab some of your Donna Salazar Products and our July Sketch to created a layout of your fave photos.
