Clean and simple - white on white - cream on cream - with a hint of white is clearly so perfect for weddings!

Now it is easy and economical to create personalized place cards, favors & items for your wedding using the Lock & Key stamp set, a little paper, ribbon and some imagination!

I created a tag, which the guests can use to write advice to the newlyweds, a save the date card and a table place card. I also made a keepsake for the couple, using some alcohol inks and a little ribbon, adhesive pearls and ribbon.

Aren't these cute Save The Date reminders? Just type out the information on the back!
So simple, yet so elegant! A little paper, some pearls, ribbon and rustic thread and you have an inexpensive way to begin your personalized wedding ensemble!

Next is a simple, yet elegant way to create your own place cards for your wedding: Simply print out the table number and then stamp the key on the back (I used the key with the heart). I die cut the lock and added a pearl to the corner. I also used the leafy vine die and cut the die in half and distressed it with ink, gluing it atop the place card.

An inexpensive and fun way to create memories from your wedding, have each guest write a piece of advice on a tag and collect them in a basket. Once you get back from the Honeymoon, read through the advice and place them in a scrapbook.

Simple die cut lock, tied on with some rustic thread. A little pearl for elegance!

The key is die cut and sponged, as is the edge of the tag!

Finally, here is the ornament:

I die cut the key and lock and made a "our first house" ornament for the couple to place on their first Christmas tree as husband and wife. A little gem on the key, some distressing and some rustic thread.

Some adhesive pearls make this ornament so elegant! The sentiment, printed on cardstock is adhered to the front of the ornament! The unique pattern which the alcohol inks create on ceramic is so beautiful and elegant!

It looks so pretty on the tree!

What do you think? I hope you enjoyed these ideas!
