A Rustic Wedding Collection

It's about that time of year for outdoor weddings. The weather is so pretty here in The Netherlands...flowers in full bloom and the sun shining bright!

Rustic Wedding Digital Scrapbooking Kit

This week I have a new wedding collection that is more on the casual side. So it is perfect for country and beach weddings. I went back and forth as to what colors to make it, but everyone has such different tastes. So I decided to make it neutral, so everyone could add their own wedding colors.

Rustic Wedding Digital Scrapbooking Kit

Another thing you should know is it was certainly made for wedding pages, but if you take away the word-art, you could use it for just about anything. I could even use the tulle banners for pretty little shabby chic pages. So I hope you find it versatile enough to use everyday.

To go along with the collection I made a set of 12 Rustic Photoshop Styles. Perfect for this kit or anything other outdoor, rustic or shabby chic layouts. This is also a great addition if you are making cards, invitations or save the date postcards.

Rustic Photoshop Styles

This style set includes: White and tan corroded metal wire and outlines, Rusty Metal, Burned and Branded in 2 sizes (for use on top of wood backgrounds), Chalkboard in Black, 3 distress stamp styles (Vanilla, Tan and Dk Brown), White Tulle and Burlap (in 2 sizes).

Background Blender Maks 2

Plus 6 XL Blending masks for photos ans for mixing papers together. These are very large and all of the are over 10 inches at their longest point. With masks like these, it easy to stretch them out for even more coverage.

YAY!  I am so happy to get to see my family and my sweet babies Lilly and Wesley. (Emily can't make it this trip she has a wedding )Though none of them are really babies anymore. But you know how that goes... always will be in our hearts. I'm really looking forward to it.
