    Good Evenig ladies...taking a break from my kitchen table where I am fastely completing many projects.

     

    Have done menus, programs, flowers, tote bag tags, and escort cards. Of course pictures are included....

     

    Menus (Copied/stolen/borrowed/altered from Rebecca (Allurements by Rebecca))

    Programs: (Thank you Janet!!!)

    Going to change the brad on those (found some wonderful chrome (shiny) at Michael's), beyond that they came out perfect.  Thanks Janet for sharing!

        Next up flowers, completed mine and the ladies. Have to make bouts for the guys and corsages for the special guest (only 1, my mother)

        Excuse the sprite cans, the stems aren't quite wrapped yet.  Question ladies, do I just wrap the stem in ribbon or should I purchase the Styrofoam 'thingy'?

            My grandmother passed and some of the others don't have the health to travel :( That's special your grandfather is walking you down - I was hoping to have both of mine in lieu of my father but we'll see what happens when we get closer. (Our fathers might be in the same town) The last time I was with my guy and his family I truly fell in love with them - so maybe your time is comming if not oh well you got your man! :)

              LOL @ 'our fathers might be in the same town', I am upset that you knew EXACTLY what I meant in reference to my father, that's scary, LOL. 

               

              The programs actually came from Janet, a Canadian bride (I stalk that thread also, LOL). She shared her programs with me, I edited and changed colors and printed them out. Her share is right on point and make them all so easy to perfect.

               

              Bag Tags ~ well do you remember that I am an eBay whore. Well another bride on here mentioned something about a Cuttlebug, so I went on eBay and purchased one for less than half of what they cost in store, brand new.  It is an embossing - die cutting machine.  Anywho, I used a die cut to cut the bag tags and the tags on the escort cards.  Now in that same breath, while I was on eBay stalking a Cuttlebug, I also stalked a Cricut Create, refer to a previous post when I first got them.  With a new Create (had to get a replacement because the first one just didn't work), I did the 'thank you' and the palm trees. A little adhesive & spray glue. Then there is the eyelets, with a 50% off coupon from Michael's I purchased a Crop-A-Dile and some eyelets....and VOILA!

               

              Name a date and time and we can create some tags for you.  I need a day trip anyways!

               

              My hanger comes from -  

              My grandmother passed and some of the others don't have the health to travel :( That's special your grandfather is walking you down - I was hoping to have both of mine in lieu of my father but we'll see what happens when we get closer. (Our fathers might be in the same town) The last time I was with my guy and his family I truly fell in love with them - so maybe your time is comming if not oh well you got your man! :)Quote:

               

              YAY! I was so excited to see! I love the programs that's a new one I havn't seen!

               

              Freakin love the bag tags! Can you share details? 

               

              Your ring is so pretty! Which seller did you order your hanger from? I think I prefer the wood/wire combined 

              And your feet may be ugly but your hands and nails and pretty :)

               

              Keep the projects comming!!!

                  Yes Janet, the programs are perfect. I bought new brads for them, so I will take a picture of those when I print them all out w/ the new decor, LOL.

                   

                  My concern with the flowers, is because they came in bunches I had to cut them off their thick stem, so the base are rather skinny, does that matter?

                   

                  And I will wait for my pictures of your flowers!!! How are you feeling? Getting closer....

                      I prefer thicker base but they dont have to be too thick (harder to carry if your girls have small hands too)

                      You could always just put a couple of cut up stems in between where no one will see them and then when you wrap them they will be covered anyway

                       

                      The programs are always popular :) i'm going to start a thread about them now so other brides can share in the fun :)

                       

                      I'm finishing up my welcome kits that go in my OOT bag now so i will have to share those with you too when i am done :) will give you more ideas hahah :)

                       

                      OMG SOOOOO close i leave in 12 days! i cant friggin believe it!!!
