Always & Forever Window Frame

Hello friends! I hope you had a great Labor day weekend! Today I'm up on the Simple Stories Blog sharing my latest altered project, a rustic window frame-turned-wedding keepsake using the classy and elegant Always & Forever Collection! I'm a sucker for a good love story and this gorgeous collection has everything you need to tell yours (or somebody else's). It is obviously perfect for designing your wedding album, making custom wedding cards and even creating a keepsake gift like I've done, to commemorate the always joyous occasion of a wedding.
A project such as this could be done with any number of style frames. I chose a rustic wood window frame, which works nicely to showcase the many beautiful elements included in the Always & Forever collection. Papers from the 6x8 Pad were first chosen and arranged in the 1st and last windows. A piece of gold glittered tulle was layered in front of each, allowing the floral patterns to show through while also creating an additional layer of elegance and sophistication. The first window was decorated to represent various wedding day festivities like cutting the cake, the champagne toasts, music and dancing, tossing the bouquet, taking lots of photos and of course, all the wedding gifts. Elements of 6x12 Chipboard, Combo Sticker, 4x6 Stickers and Clear Stickers were used to build the miniature scene. See those tiny golden hearts floating all around.... Love is actually in the air!
The 2nd window is designed using 4x6 Vertical Elements, where a few white roses, gold accents and hearts from Bits & Pieces were added to the lovely sentiment. Simple and sweet.
Similarly, the 3rd window boasts a romantic sentiment from 4x6 Vertical Elements and has lovebirds touching beaks with a gold heart just above to represent a first kiss that seals the sacred wedding vows which bind two soul mates together as one.
The final window depicts the wedding vehicle that whisks the newlyweds off into the sunset where they begin their new lives together and of course, live happily ever after! And just like any great fairy tale, the Always & Forever collection is a dream come true!
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you've been inspired to use Always & Forever on your next wedding-themed creation! Until next time, happy crafting!
