Hawaiian Wedding....

So for the past several days or so I have been telling you that I was working on some wedding items. See my next door neighbor and good friend has a sister who is getting married next week in Hawaii! My friend asked me if I could print off some items for her. While I told her I could JUST print off some cards for her - that really wasn't what I do..... and hence the wedding project begun!! LOL

They knew that they want to use a Hibiscus flower since it was in Hawaii and that they wanted to use the colors pink and Tiffany blue. Well, I remembered that Barb of Barwire Designs had a couple of really nice cutting files with hibiscus flowers..... so I contacted her (I mean why recreate the wheel if you don't have to!) and she was gracious enough to share her files with me!

Now the bad thing about a designer using another designers design (wow try saying that ten times fast!!!)... is that 10 times out of 10 the other designer is going to make changes to your file!! Bahaha.... and that was the case with me as well!!!

I started out by using Barb's Aloha Title with Hibiscus Flower and I modified it for my purpose. (There was nothing wrong with her file - it was amazing... I just needed it to be three pieces for fast and simple assembly).

Once I had decided on the flower and how to simply it to make it easier for assemble - off I went!!!

In the end we ended up coming up with a complete Wedding Assemble. From a two sided program fan, to an events card, table sitting cards, to a gift bag tag.... we did them all!!!

Here is a photo of all the projects together:

And then here is a photo of the gift tag cards:

This is the program fans - front and back:

And here is the seating charts that will sit on all the tables:

And these are the events cards that will go into the welcome packets:

I think they turned out REALLY well!!!! One thing that you can't tell from these photos is that we took our clear Spica pens and added a little glitz in the center of the flowers!! They really sparkle when they are in the sun!

Well I hope you enjoyed my little show and tell! Don't forget we are only a few days away from Freebie Friday!!!

Until Next Time!
