Staff Project: Jean's 60th Anniversary Projects

Today I'm excited to share with you some beautiful projects created by our staff member Jean for her parents' recent 60th anniversary. Jean worked very hard to make this event special for all who attended. I know you'll be inspired by her creations!

Jean made a lovely anniversary card. I love the way she used her embossing folders to create an elegant effect. Gems and dots of pink Liquid Pearls add just the right touch of shine.

Jean also made treat bag favors for the event. She started with one of the clear plastic bags available at Memory Bound and added a bag topper made from a 3" circle of black cardstock, a 2.5" scalloped circle, and a 2" pink circle. She embossed "love" onto the pink circle and traced the letters with the Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. Although it's difficult to see in the photo, the pen added just the right touch of sparkle!

Jean also made a wonderful tribute album for her parents. I wish you could all see this album in person, because it is truly stunning! I love how Jean copied some of the wedding cards her parents received when they married 60 years ago and used them on the pages of her album. She incorporated photos from "then" and "now" by placing them behind the copied cards.

This album opens up to create a standing display. What a beautiful tribute to her parents -- and what a wonderful centerpiece for the party! I love projects which are both beautiful and practical.

Jean's album was based on the one used in Maggie's recent Circle Explosion Book class. You can see that this is a very versatile album design, suitable for any event or occasion. If you would like to make this type of album, we have instructions available for purchase at Memory Bound so you can create one from scratch using your own cardstock. We also have kits by Pinecone Press which include instructions and materials.

Thanks, Jean, for sharing your amazing projects with us!
