Bridesmaid Cards :)

Even before my engagement I thought about who I wanted by my side on my wedding day.
After I was finally engaged, I knew I didn't want to just ask "Hey, will you be in my wedding?"
I had to do something crafty of course!

What did I do? I made cards for my friends asking that they be my Bridesmaid :)

BTW...these are my colors :) ...kinda, haha. Coral and Yellow.
But...my wedding will be in Sept, so if I have trouble getting coral, it'll be pink.

I got the idea for a card while browsing Etsy.

I saw this one at Kilgore Custom Designs...but wanted more of a traditional card.

....and I loved the wording on these cards from The Inspired Note...even the fonts...

...so I combined the ideas, added my own ideas, and LOVED the outcome :D

I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes and icky spray adhesive to put it all together!

Here are a few pictures...sorry some are blurry :/

I cut out a solid piece of "coral" and a yellow leaf design.

Then printed my words and out for the inside of the card.

...glued these two together...

...and then glued it to the outside of the card.

I found this dress shaped card (w/o the design on it) in the silhouette shop. I just sliced it in half to get singles of the dress. The design and sash I added and printed on white cardstock to begin w/ ...but then decided I didn't like it w/ my yellow leaf design.

I also used my silhouette to cut out these name tags.

...rhinestones, pearls, ribbon...

And my end result :)

Hope you love them as much as I do! ...ps...all my friends said YES.

If you don't feel crafty, then definately check out the Etsy shope I mentioned above, b/c they have some super cute cards you can buy!

Wee Bit Wednesday (from last week)

I know, it's almost Wednesday again! But...I still wanted to participate in the action I missed last week :)

I was SO stinking busy! Not only did I have my normal work schedule, but we had color guard clinicals and auditions for the upcoming marching season. We dropped it down from 20 girls last year, to only 10 this year. I'm hoping this season is way better than the last! It can be pretty stressful working w/ a bunch of high school girls!  

Anywho, on to the questions!! :D

{one} what profession have you always admired?
I have seriously always admired teachers. They transform the minds of children throughout the years and it's pretty amazing! Lol, one of the smallest details I remember from my 6th grade teacher is that "a lot" is seperate and not "alot".  Haha, and after working w/ the high school last year, I had a huge appreciation for high school teachers especially!

{two} what would the title of your memoir/biography be if it was written today?
"Everything Happens For a Reason" ...you have no idea how crazy this past year and a half has turned out to be. Especially in the last month. 

{three} how far do you commute to work?
 About 20 minutes

{four} are your earlobes attached or detached?

{five} do you eat the unpopped kernels of popcorn at the bottom of the bag?
No...they're too hard!

{six} what is the strangest gift you’ve ever received?
I can't remember! I know I've received some wierd gifts in the past though, haha.

{seven} what is one tv show that you wish hadn’t been cancelled?
Big Shots...it was a tv show about 4 men who are best friends...it was Such a good show!

{eight} what is something that you are saving money for right now?
My Wedding! AH! Well...I haven't made any extra money to save yet, but when I do, that'll be what I'm saving for!

{nine} what hobby would you like to take up?
Haha, I already have so many hobbies! Ya know, I like to be well rounded :) Well, I still want to learn to crochet.... :)

{ten} how many times a year do you get really dressed up?
One if I'm lucky! I'll have a lot more reasons to get dressed up over the course of this next year though!

Hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me!
Check out Leigh Ashley and join in on the fun every Wednesday! :)

New project coming soon :)

So...I am anxious to post about a "project" I'm working on.
However, I am not done yet...::sad face::
One more trip to the craft store for cardstock shall do it :)
I am making cards for some pretty special people for my wedding.

I'm excited :)
This is just to let you know, lol.

Well have a great Cinco de Mayo!

Oh p.s. ...this project involves my Silhouette!
It's so exciting learning how to use it and creating w/ it!
