Wedding Week: Stamped Place Cards

Posted on

Stamped Place CardsDuring the final few months leading up to our wedding, I spent countless hours wandering the aisles of Joann’s looking for supplies and inspiration for our wedding projects.  I was at a loss on how I wanted to create our wedding guest place cards, but there in the stamp aisle I found these super cute floral stamps and hot pink ink all for 40% off.  Light bulb went off in my head and I knew exactly what to do!

I hurried home and grabbed the extra paper from our DIY pocket-fold wedding invitations along with the large bag of corks we had been saving for a cork board project someday and I went to work.  The cards themselves were really simple, what took the most time is getting the corks prepped.  The wine cork card holders are more time intensive than they look.  Here is exactly how they are made: Continue reading »

Wedding Week: Gerber Daisy Flowers

Posted on

Gerber Daisy Wedding FlowersThe most nerve-wracking DIY project we decided to tackle for our wedding had to be the wedding flowers.  We were trying to keep our wedding within a $5,000-$6,000 budget, and in order to make that happen I knew a florist was out of the question.  After looking at reviews and countless blogs, I decided wholesale wedding flowers made the most sense, and I was in love with the look of Gerber Daisies and Roses. The vibrant pinks, oranges and yellows was exactly how I envisioned tying in our colors and giving a great pop to the reception.

I opted to get my flowers through Costco so that I could talk to a real person and pick the flowers up at my local store.  I know there are other places that will mail deliver wholesale flowers, but I had nightmares of them not showing up on time or getting lost trying to find our remote orchard location.  I was so amazed by the quality of our flowers and was able to do the entire wedding flowers (table vases, hanging vases, bridal party bouquets, etc) for about $500 total, and we had plenty of flowers.

Wedding Week: Wood Round Table Numbers

Posted on

An often overlooked outlet for creativity in a wedding are table numbers.  For our rustic outdoor wedding, I wanted to find a way to incorporate the theme and dress up the tables with DIY table numbers.  I considered mini chalkboards, decoupage large wood letters and even using photos for the table numbers, but kept coming back to the idea of using something natural and from the property.  I just love how these turned out!

Back when I originally made these for my wedding I was not in the blogging mode and neglected to take detail photos for the making of.  Luckily my dear friend Tessa loved these table numbers as much as I did and asked to use them at her wedding this coming August.  I only had 10 tables and she is expecting 22, so I got the opportunity to make a few more and document the process.

Our Rustic Wedding

Love is in the air! With spring right around the corner, it sure is starting to feel like wedding season!  This time last year I was entering the final scramble to get my long list of DIY projects done in time for our August wedding.  In honor of this time of year, welcome to Just Two Crafty Sisters Wedding Week (or two weeks since I just realized how many projects we actually did!!) Let’s start with an overview of our rustic / backyard / orchard wedding details.  Looking for a tutorial of each project?  As I post those tutorials over the next few weeks, I will link them here :)

Our wedding colors were fuchsia and chocolate brown.  Being that the wedding was held outside in my parents’ orchard, I wanted to keep everything simple and a little bit country.   Continue reading »

First Dance Framed Photo

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Being that this is my first Valentine’s Day as a married woman, I wanted to give my hubby something special and meaningful.  So here is what I did:

I bought and 8×12 frame, a white mat board frame with a 5×7 opening and I had a photo printed of our first dance at our wedding. I then used a nice Zig black pen (you can order a full set of EK Success Writer Dual Marker Set, 48/Pkg here, I love these pens!) and wrote our song lyrics around the mat frame.  Our song was Bob Marley “Is This Love”.  I saw this idea on Pinterest a couple months ago and loved it!
