I have been MIA around SCS and my blog as I worked on some wedding invites for a friends daughter. It all began with the couple wanting to use a special picture of a tree (he proposed to her under this tree).....she wanted it used on the front of a post card to be used as the response card....being the obsessive compulsive person I am I decided/suggested she use the tree on the invite as well. Working with her and her mom we came up with some great ideas that fulfilled her dream of what she envisioned from the use of the tree pic to the kraft paper and the lace belly band and twine.
It was great fun doing this - I learned a ton about what my Silhouette Cameo could do....even more about editing a photo on PicMonkey....I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. More important I am happy the Bride and Groom are happy with how it all turned out.

Sherry, these are soooo "tender" to look at, a piece of heart on these papers. What a lovely design to "have and to hold" the tree that started this story! Love that your design skills are such a blessing to others. These will be treasured for years my friend. Thanks for sharing. Your work is excellent! LYMI
p.s. you do know, the entire first five minutes of staring at these beauties, all I could say in my head was " M-e-r-c-y "! Yep.

As always, your creative genius took over - What a touching story of the tree that brought about the choice of this image!!
Unbelievable what your new machine and photo editing helped to accomplish - they really have that vintage look you wanted!! Glad everyone is happy with them - makes YOU feel wonderful too! An awesome job - all the way through, from inspiration to completion!!

would love info on dimensions of the invitations, kind of paper you used, or any other specifications on these beautiful invitations. My daughter likes them and asked me if my Silhouette and I could come up with something similar for her July wedding. Where did you get the lace/ribbon, and paper?
