Love Is Brewing

Good Morning! Today is my day over at Jaded Blossom and I am so excited to be sharing my project with you. 
A very good friend of mine is getting married in June and this past weekend was her Bridal Shower. Her theme was a Tea Party, SERIOUSLY, how fun is that! Knowing her and knowing how much she loves different and homemade items, I knew I wanted to make her something special that she would love and cherish. She is also a photographer so I thought she could even use the items in a photo shoot as well. 
I started searching for the perfect paper. I knew I wanted something elegant and pretty. I already had the perfect kits, they were from SVG Cuts. They are Honeybee Tea and Tea For You and Me. I decided to go with the same paper collection that Mary from SVG Cuts used in the Honeybee Tea kit. It was just too perfect all around. I used the same patterns that she did for my teapot too. The paper collect is from Graphic 45, Botanical Tea. I have never used their paper before. But I fell in love with it. It cuts so nicely and is even more pretty in person!  

 The teapot is from the Honeybee Tea kit. The lid comes off too so you could add some kind of treats or even a little gift.
The teacup and spoon are from the tea for you and me kit

 The tea dispenser box is from tea for you and me kit
 For the hat box I did use a third kit from SVG cuts it is Dress Shop. These 12x12 layout papers from Graphic 45 are great for the top panel of the hat boxes or even a giftbag. I had to use it, it is too pretty not to. 

I cut all of my pieces out and assembled everything. I spent about one week to make everything and just did little bits at a time. 
I made a tag from the Jaded Blossom Treat Tag Die and cut out the cup from the Baking Dies. Then punched out the Sweetest Couple sentiment from the Wedding Candies set and added it to a Candy Charm and Banner die.  I cut out a banner from the Dimensional Banner Dies and stamped the Love is Brewing sentiment from the Perfect Match stamp set. I tied it onto the teapot handle with some tulle that I had in my stash. I couldn't leave the teacup empty so I added some kisses to it with the Wedding Candies on the bottom. 
I also added flowers from my stash

Wow!Your project came out gorgeous! I can't wait to try to do this for my mom for Mother's Day. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration

Hi Lorie, it is more time consuming than anything, in my opinion. The teapot was a little harder than the teacup. Putting the last two pieces of the spout together was the part that I had a little trouble with just because it is smaller. But the assembly videos that Mary makes are great to follow. I always use them as reference.
