Wedding Fun

Hey everyone!

So seeing as how I'm in my early/mid 20s, I guess I'm getting to the point in my life where people are going to be getting married...a lot. My good friends Nicole and Andrew were numero uno on the list of people-I-know-and-care-about-and-who-invite-me-to-their-wedding, and I was so excited about everything that I volunteered to help with some bits and pieces, some of which fell into the crafting department, so I thought I'd share here!

Overall, I helped with menus...

...table numbers...

...and--my favorite!--the programs.

I don't use my Cricut as much as I thought I would, but this was one project that would have been next to impossible without it. It just so happened that one of the cartridges that came with my Cricut has a very very similar little branch to the motif on Nicole and Andrew's invitations. From there, we worked with their teal and brown color scheme to incorporate subtle amounts of brightness, sophistication, and a touch of fun to both the ceremony and the reception.

It ended up being a lot of work (and a fair amount of stress until I got the settings just right on the Cricut and learned how to angle and space things properly), but it was totally worth it! I particularly love the programs with the little pop dots underneath the square to give a little dimension. So fun, and, if I do say so myself, professional.

Yay for Nicole and Andrew!
