I wanted to share a couple of the non-card projects I did for our daughter's wedding. I have a few cards I'll share in future blog posts.
Several times during Kendra's college years, I made sour cream containers and filled them with candy as gifts for some of her friends (you can see some of my past ones here, here, and here. When we were thinking of what to do for favors, she requested I make them again. When our daughter flew out to meet the rest of Sam's family on Christmas break 2011, they toured the Jelly Belly factory. Remembering the fun she had on that visit, we decided to fill the containers with Jelly Bellies. She picked two sets of papers and two stamps so that we could have two versions.
As I mentioned in my post about the album I made for her, Kendra had a display in memory of the grandparents who have already passed away. I made signs to go in front of the picture frames to let the guests know what Sam & Kendra called their grandparents and what their names were.
I used the technique I learned on the tent cards to make sure the signs wouldn't flop over.
Kendra wanted me to make her some simple thank you cards that they could use for send in appreciate for wedding gifts they received. I still have quite a few to make but here is a sampling of what I have done so far. Kendra found a 6 x 6 paper pad that she liked and I'm using it as my starting point.
As promised here are a couple wedding day pics:
The weather was unseasonably cool so we got Kendra a wrap to wear at the reception.
The new Mr. & Mrs.
On their one week anniversary, a second reception was held for them in CA at Sam's home church. Here's a pic of the newlyweds. By the smiles, I'd say marriage agrees with them.
Thanks for stopping by.
