It was our 13th wedding anniversary this summer and I wanted to do something....but hubby and I don't normally get presents for one another, so what to do? We have a picture wall in our kitchen (as seen on one of Kirstie Allsop's programmes last year), so I thought I would make us a bit of art, using an upcycled picture and frame, which includes our wedding date.
I used papers from American Crafts Lucky Charm pad. They have the most lovely sentiments, which I utilised - "Love you to the stars and back", "You make my heart sing", "You'll never know, dear, how much I love you", etc. I loved the summery bright colours, as well as the sentiments. I cut a star and hearts from the papers and used my pyrography tool to burn our wedding date onto a wooden heart. I have also included Spellbinders Foliage and Memory Box Hibiscus flower dies, my xcut flower punches and some text card candi.
So, our theme at Dream Valley this fortnight is "Summer Days" and I have used summery colours and included my summer wedding date. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make for us. A happy crafting!
