This year I've decided it's time to move into Wedding Impressions - after all, the whole 'handprint' idea is that it's a keepsake of a special time, capturing a wonderful moment and reminding you of those precious memories whenever you look at it - and weddings most definitely fall into that category!
I took some hand casts from my friends, then gathered together some lovely little wedding mementos and downloaded a royalty-free photo. They were all mounted together in a solid oak box frame, and I'm really pleased with the end result.

I also did a bridesmaid one which you can see on my Little Impressions Stafford Facebook Page - you can't see it in the photos but I added some confetti before I framed it too. Both frames got some really good feedback from a local wedding fair that my husband went to, so I'm looking forward to doing some more soon :)
If you have friends in Staffordshire who are getting married soon, then you can buy Impressions Vouchers online from Little Impressions.
And finally, here are some other lovely handmade wedding keepsakes that I spotted whilst browsing.

This is such a great idea - available from Personalized Prints on Etsy
I couldn't do a blog post without some crochet, so here we are:

These would make beautiful table decorations or wedding favours - see them at Table Top Jewels on Etsy
Wish I could make these - see it on my Wedding Keepsakes Pinterest Board
Finally, don't forget to look at Handmade Monday to see what the other creative people have been up to!
See you next time :)
