Just Married car card

Hello!  It sure is getting chilly here but we had a beautiful weekend wedding a few weeks ago.  The groom loves cars so I thought I would try to go with that.  Here is the wedding card I made for the happy couple: 

The car is from Nifty Fifties at 3".  It's important to remember that the inches for Cricut cuts are the height of the cut.  This actual card is just under 4" x 8".  The scalloped wedding swirl paper is Making Memories, folded over a black base.

"Just Married" is from the Wrap It Up cart, as are the cans hanging off the back of the car. I made some adjustments so they would fit this car. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Thanks for stopping by.  I love to hear your comments or just plain ol' how you're doin'! :)

Bachelorette Sash

Today I am so excited to share with you the bachelorette sash I made for a very good friend of mine.  Earlier I showed you the Bachelorette Bash goody bags I made and now on to the sash! 

First I gathered (i.e. purchased) the materials I wanted to use for her sash. 

 I neglected to take a lot of pictures of the process.  I'll tell you, it was a lot of guessing!  I've never made a sash before so I was just going for it! :) 

I got most of it sewn together and then wanted to plan out how the words would fit.  I used Billionaire as my font and welded the words together on my Gypsy.  I cut out a few sizes until I found the one that fit my sash. 
I used Wonder Under with my fabric and then cut it in the Cricut Expression, just like I would cut paper.  Then I ironed it on to the sash.  I did this before I sewed the sash entirely together because if it didn't work, I was going to have to sew the words on (and boy and I glad the Wonder Under worked!) 

Then I put it all together!  Here's a really silly (or you could say awful... look at the sash not me!) picture of me modeling it because I was so damn proud of it and excited how it turned out! 

A feather-y clip from Michael's holds it closed at the bottom.  This way it would fit her any way she wanted. And the clip matched our feather boas - see below... 
Then here she is opening it!

And three college besties: 

We had a great night!  :)  Skip To My Lou
