I mentioned earlier in the week that I am in Pensacola, Florida for my godson, Zachs wedding. We are having a great time preparing for the big day.
My best friend Tracy is Zachs mom. She wanted to give some of the out of town guests a special gift bag for attending the wedding day.
She decided on a great beach bag design to put the special gifts in, which she ordered from Classic Ink. They design awesome t-shirts, bags and other specialty items. Click here to see the website.
So anyway, Tracy asked me to design a card to slide into the clear front pocket of the gift bag. It had to be "beachy" and in Zach and Emily's wedding colors.
I decided on the starfish image from the "Picture Perfect" stamp set as well as the "Labeler Alphabet" which I used to personalize the bags. The "Watercolor Wash" background stamp gives it that soft splash of color.
This is Zachs cousin, Tina. She's the gorgeous model that I "hired" for the photo shoot. (She works for cookies)
Aren't the bags ever so cute? They even have a zipper at the top. Perfect for a beach themed wedding.
I used one acrylic block to mount the stamps for the date of the wedding. This made it easy for me to stamp without having to line it up each time.
After Tina's first photo shoot, I thought, why didn't we use our beautiful ocean view as a backdrop the first time? So, I hired her again for another photo shoot. Tina makes the bag look even better and she earned more cookies.
Tracy really made the bags special for the wedding guests. She packed them full of water, snacks, soaps, seashell shaped chocolates and personalized items like chap stick, an itineray and maps.
Here's a bunch of them...
It was a team effort, packing all these awesome gift bags. There was a few fatalities with punctured water bottles in the process. But its all good now.
I know the wedding guests will be blown away when Tracy hands them their special gift bag. Not only will they have a great bag of goodies, but the guests will also be able to remove the card and add it to their scrapbooks to remember the special day.
Thanks for being a super great and super cute model, Tina. You've definitely earned your extra cookies!
Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today. I'll be posting pics of the bride and groom this weekend. Stay tuned!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
