Hello, Everyone! My name is Heather from Id & Ego Creations, and today I am showcasing some of my bridal/wedding products.
The most popular wedding season is in our midst, although wedding bells ring all year-round. Today I am sharing some wedding-related items that I have designed using the Epiphany Crafts 25 Round tool and embellishments, which will hopefully help create memories of a beautiful wedding day.
First I am going to share my wedding bouquet charm. I have been making these for a few years now, and they have become a very popular request among friends and family! I got to see this particular one “in action” at a friend’s wedding last summer. The scale of the charm was perfect, and it added an elegant and personalized element to the bride’s bouquet.
The body of the bouquet charm is 2″ in diameter and approximately 1/8″ thick, and is made from several layers of scalloped-shaped pieces of card stock which are adhered together and finished with a clear gloss medium. The round 25 rhinestone charm setting is used as the centerpiece on the front of the charm. It features a personalized detail with the happy couple’s last name initial and wedding date printed onto card stock, which is made using the round 25 shape tool and bubble cap. The charm is accented with a coordinating crystal and silver beaded charm and a light blue satin bow on the top. It can be considered as the “something blue” for the wedding too!
The back of this charm is made from the same colored card stock as the detail on the front of the charm, which has a subtle shimmering finish on it. The back is also finished with the same clear gloss medium as the front and sides of the charm. It is also personalized with the first name initials of the couple, followed by a short, simple message or quote below them, such as “Forever & Ever”.
The charm is tied to the stems (or handle) of the bouquet. I am hoping to get one of the professional shots of the bouquet with the charm on it. I quickly snapped this photo with my phone camera at the reception. It may not be the best photo, although it gives you an idea of what it looks like on a bouquet!
I decided to design another wedding-related product with my Epiphany Crafts tools and embellishments. This is a mini guest book/photo album. It’s dimensions are 5-1/2″ W X 4-1/2″ H X 1/2″ thick (1″ thick, including projection of personalized metal charm on the front) when closed.
Once again, the same charm detail that I used on the bouquet charm is used on the front of this album. The cover is made with a heavy, silver shimmering card stock, and a satin ribbon is wrapped around the cover for a soft and colorful detail. It literally ties the color scheme together!
The inside is loaded with more fun details, using the round 25 and round 14 shape tools, bubble caps and brad charm settings. “Happily Ever After” is printed on epoxy detail at the top of the inside of the cover, which features Id & Ego Creations’ “Peppy Polka Dot” patterned card stock. The pages of album are bound together with cute, monogrammed brad details in coordinating colors, and the bubble caps add an amazing depth to these details! Crystal rhinestones are added to the detail at the top to help tie in the rhinestone details on the charm setting on the front. You’ve got to have some glitz and glamour at a wedding, right?
The pages on the inside of the book are made from ivory and turquoise card stock, and the colors alternate throughout the book. Guests can write messages to the newlyweds, and sign their names on the pages inside. It can also be simply used as a memory/photo album, where the married couple can add photos using fun photo corners, and notes and memories to record the history of their relationship together, from first date to wedding day!
And the last item I designed symbolizes the perfect way for the happy couple to end their night – A “Do Not Disturb” hotel door hanger! It’s dimensions are 4″ W X 8″ high, and it’s also loaded with the same fabulous details as the other products I have showcased today.
After a fun day of celebration, the newlyweds depart from their reception to their honeymoon suite retreat, hang this sign on the door and close it for the night! this sign will help to ensure that passers by and housekeeping at the hotel know that the newlyweds are not to be disturbed.
Once again, I used the round 25 shape tool and bubble cap to make the personalized detail at the bottom of the hanger to coordinate with the other wedding products. Of course there has to be some bling, too! Clear crystal rhinestones are added around the personalized centerpiece to really set it off with eye-catching glitz!
I have been having so much fun using the Epiphany Crafts tools and embellishments. I love how the bubble caps add depth and the round, rhinestone charm setting adds some glitz and glamour to my products.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed the products I have shared today.
