Here is the inspiration for my programs:

Yep, those are Mrs. Penguin’s programs from over at Weddingbee. If you read weddingbee, you know that there are some AMAZING program inspirations over there, but these were my favorites. Plus, I liked the simplicity of it all. So now you know what I started with...and here’s what I finished with... What do you think? Simple. Elegant. Classy.

I love them. They were slightly a pain in the rear to make...but not really. Just time consuming since I wanted to emboss them twice. But that was MY choice, so my own downfall. Oh well. They turned out lovely, and I even had a helper...

Isn’t he cute working that embossing gun? I kept having to remind him NOT to watch tv while aiming the gun at the paper...a few got burned! It was nice to have the help, and I promise to show you a full tutorial later on...just trying to catch up and show you all of the projects before posting any of the wedding re-cap photos that I’ve been able to get my hands on. Nothing from the photographer, but lots of friends’ pictures are pouring in!

Did you find inspiration from someone else’s design for your programs? Or did you come up with it all on your own?


  1. Love them...what a great little idea! Our programs actually 'fan' out the way yours sort of do. But ours will actually be more like fans and they will be tied with a ribbon instead of an eyelet like yours. I will post about them more later. I actually fell in love with them on a blog where I found the entire inspiration for our wedding color scheme. And I found the company that made them to have them design ours for our own wedding. :)

  2. Wow, you are a paper crafting genius, those look fantatic!

  3. Those are so pretty! And I love the pic of your hubby with the pink embosser!
