Magnolia-licious DT "W"ednesday Inspirational Post.

Good morning my dears,  I hope your week is going well.  It's time for another "W"ednesdsay Inspirational post with either a Wee or Wild Rose Studio creation over at

  My sweet Daughter (Janie) is getting married in around 5 weeks time and I wanted to make her a wedding keepsake album, which you can see a peek of in the picture above. 

I needed something to put the album into and as luck would have it I had cut and hemmed a pair of linen curtains for Janie the previous week and asked her if I could keep the excess material.  Hey Presto!!! I had the material for her keepsake bag.  I  stamped this sweet "Wee" Love me do image onto the fabric and coloured them with my copics and then got to work with my old trusty sewing machine.  I even managed to make the flower and the trim form all the excess. 

This utterly adorable stamp is available over at Magnolia Stamps where you will find a fabulous selection of Magnolia/Wee/Wild Rose Studio and coming soon Penny Black stamps, dies, papers, storage solutions and so much more.    

I want to remind you all that every week one random commenter from all the Blogs/posts will be chosen to win a mystery prize from our lovely Diana. The winners will be posted each Wednesday over at Magnolia-licious 

Do please pop over and take a peek at the wonderful creations my fabulous DT buddies have make for your inspirations this week using either a Wee (Sylvia Zet)  stamp or a Wild Rose Studio stamp. 

I will leave you with a few pictures of the inside of this my very first Album (I've made another one since) and don't fret my Daughter already has this in her possession.  lol

This is the pages as they unfold - there are 5 pages in total but they are double sided, there are lots of hidden bits n bobs that I just couldn't photograph - a multitude of tags and nooks n crannies etc.  Anyway I hope you enjoy the few pages I can show you.

I am not going to list the products used in my album, but huge thanks to Magnolia Stamps - Score-pal - Marianne Design products, Prima papers - Angel Crafts - Wild Orchid flowers - Live and Love Crafts if it weren't for your fabulous products this album would not have been attempted.

Have a wonderful day everyone.
