Wedding Place Cards & Life Update

Hello dear friends! I want to go ahead and appologize for my lack of presence in this lovely blog world. Life has been so busy that my computer time is extremely limited these days. I wish I could visit all of your blogs and email back a little better, but that may just have to wait until things slow down...which may be after the summer is over! Ha!

Anyway, I wanted to share one of my latest projects with you all. My old boss/ friend asked me to make place cards for her bridesmaid's luncheon. I became so excited as soon as the words "shabby chic" left her lips. Shabby chic is most definitely my forte! Here's a few photos of my creations! All of them are different and I love it!



I'm very pleased with how they all turned out! I don't think I can even pick a favorite. So what is yours? It was a fun little project! Although I must say, I am enjoying the preparation for someone else's wedding instead of mine for a change! It felt like I was always doing craft projects for our wedding!

PS: I am trying out an all white look and a new header. What do you guys think, white or color? Also, if you know a way to expand the blog width I'd love to know!


Have a wonderful Friday!

Those turned out great! And I like the white, very clean looking. And thank you for your sweet comments on my blog! :) I LOVED them.

Love them! I think Anna Lauren's is my fave. I faint over lace. Plus burlap and I'm in a coma.

And I love the clean look of the white blog, but I'm always a sucker for little pop of color.

(Did I just say pop of color?! My art professors would kill me if they heard me!)

These are awesome!! You are such a creative gal!
I'm loving the blog look... and I have tried to figure out how to change the blog width FOREVER.
I think you have to like customize/edit your HTML yourself. Sounds complicated to me....

love these place cards! i think place cards were my favorite part of my own wedding crafting! i don't know if i can pick a fave... maybe ruthie's!?

Sonia said...

Love them all! I think my favorite would be between Brenda's and Hope's!

Annie said...

Love these!

Go to "Edit HTML" under the "Design" tab in your Blogger dashboard. In the html, look for this code:

#outer-wrapper {
width: 925px;
margin:0 auto;
padding:10px;
text-align:$startSide;
font: $bodyfont;
}

Yours will have a different number for the width - just make that bigger. You'll also have to play with the pixel width for the main wrapper {that's your blog post space} and your sidebar wrapper {your sidebar}. I hope that helps! If not, let me know and I'll see what else I can tell you :]

Tatiana said...

Yay! I can see your blog now! Finally!
Can I just say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of these! I think Sarah and Brenda are my faves. Such amazing creativity! You rock girly!

PS: Will you please follow me? Hahaha. Just kidding

They are all great. I can't choose either. I think I'll be calling you up to do mine. ;)
