Junkitz, Junkitz and more Junkitz

I have been wanting to do a LO of my brothers wedding for a while now. I found this Junkitz paper and it matched the color of our bridesmaids dresses. So I cut the dress and sewed it onto a piece of black cardstock making it into a pocket. I sewed the photo to the papers then pinned the 2 pieces of paper to the fabric/cardstock. I stamped a foam heart 3 times using a watermark pad. I punched holes around the design and hand stitched around the 3 hearts. I wrote on the page using a white pen (you can get them at K2). I had some other photos that Lori had given to me, in a black folder which I added some patterned paper and ribbon to and used that to hold my extra photos and a place to journal. The binder clip on the page says "look what I did" so my journaling in response was:
Yeah, look what you did. You married my brother. (wow my little brother is married) Actually I couldn't be happier for the two of you. I am so excited to finally have a sister (especially one that shares the same love for scrapbooking ad photography that I do). You both compliment each others personality so well, you are a perfect match. I love you both very much

Our Destination: the Florida Keys
This LO was so much fun to do. I had been wanting to scrapbook this trip, but all the picts and stuff were sitting in a bag for the last year... I didn't know what to do with it all. I saw this wavy Junkitz paper and the LO was born. I had fun finding ephemera to use as my letter "O"'s in both the words "our" and "Florida". I was so happy to find the keys in my supplies to use as a substitute for the word "Keys", it just made the page.

I had a lot of fun making this LO too. I cut 12 3x3 inch squares and adhered them down to a piece of cardstock. I then sewed up the 3 vertical lines using a "whip"? stitch (sorry I do not know the names of my stitches too well), then I cross stitched the horizontal lines. I cut the end of the tag with a pinking shears as well as the ribbon. I inked the edges of the tag using purple and red ink. I cut out a paisley from Janna's paper adhered it to the tag, stitched 3 cross stitches on it and wrote my journaling. (the page would be quick and easy if you didn't sew, but I have to say the sewing gives it a really "finished" look)
