What comes to your mind when this time of the year rolls around? The spring months turning into summer, everything is fresh, bright, the flowers are you think of babies, birthdays....perhaps weddings? Aahh, I think of lovely weddings....young brides-to-be frantically chasing the clock as they finalize preparations for their's a fun time....stressful but a 'good' kind of stress....

This time of the year also reminds me deeply of my own wedding....5 years in two days to be exact - May 17, 2003 was when I got married and I so remember the day and all the months that led up to that special's funny how you remember every little detail and it's great to look back every-once-in-a-while and remind yourself how happy you were.....and how beautiful everyone looked! That's what this time of the year means to me, delicate colors and romantic weddings. So for today's project, I thought I would make and personalize a Wedding DVD holder and include a matching card (btw, these colors were not my own wedding colors, I just simply love this blue and chocolate combo)...

Here is a closeup of the coordinating card:

Guests will really appreciate receiving a dvd keepsake of your wedding and the coordinating thank-you note lets them know how special it meant to you for them to be present on YOUR day!

The concept of sending out dvd keepsakes is nothing new, but to make each holder a bit more personal says a lot. While it is not feasible to send to everyone who attended your wedding a dvd, you may want to categorize to whom it should go out to. Perhaps you only want to send to those who live very far away and were not able to make it due to family obligations or work.

Or you may choose to select key family members, relatives, and only very close friends. Either way, the sentiment will be appreciated.

Here are the materials used:

Papers: Chick-a-Doo by SEI. Flutterby by Doodlebug Designs. White Cardstock.

Florals and crystals: Prima and Making Memories.

Inks: Versa Magic Sea Breeze and Cyan.

Stamps: Gettin' Hitched, Floral Frenzy, and Far East by Lizzie Anne Designs.

Accessories: Marvy oval and circle scallop punch. Scallop scissors.
