Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Victorian Challenge

So the first challenge over at the Sugar Sweet Paper Treats blog was to do something with a Victorian theme. Let me tell you this was not an easy thing for me. Having 2 boys and a husband there are not a whole lot of girlie things in my house, let alone anything Victorian. Thanks to the other ladies on the design team though I think I fumbled my way through it pretty well. Since my wedding pages are one of the few girlie things I get to do I figured that was a good place to start. All of the patterned papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle. I made the flowers by cutting a scalloped circle, misting it with water, pinching it in the middle and ruffling it out. Then attached a Prima flower and pearl brad to the top of it. The scalloped border on the bottom is an EK Success border punch and the "Bride" title is from K & Co. It's not the MOST Victorian project ever, but for not being my "thing" I thought it turned out pretty good. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all of the other great projects on the SSPT blog.


  1. Amy it turned out beautiful! Very elegant and I love your flower. I love that border piece and the silver ribbon works perfectly!! Is that a diecut or is it from one of your cartridges?
    I've got to get busy with my nieces basketball layouts - not Victorian in any way shape or form (ha!).

  2. i like to get the interested and informative material.
