Simple folded Invitations

Standard

Kelly wanted a sample using  white, silver and purple.  Something simple with roses and rings. 

Using a trifold design  I started with a very simple layout and then stepped it up a little by adding the purple swirls. Here I’ve kept it simple but you could really bling up those swirls!

After consultation Kelly decided that she wanted something completely different, however she has used elements of the rings and roses for part of her ensemble. (More on that after the invitations have been mailed out) 

Handmade Christmas Planner/ Organizer

Standard

Here’s a quick little Christmas planner I made this morning for my friend. 

Basically all I did was take a double-sided piece of card stock (I used a  basic grey Christmas print) cut to 30cm x 30cm and scored at 10cm and 20cm length ways and then flipped it around and scored at 21cm width ways.

I then embossed just to the scoring at 21cm and then folded the bottom part up and used double-sided tape to secure into pockets. I then folded it like a pamphlet. I added a lovely little clip art  I found here  http://papercraftingobsession.blogspot.com/2010/08/christmas-planner-free-printable.html which I matted in red and sandwiched some ribbon in between before adhering together to use as a tie.   (I just saved the clip art and then sized it down to suit my planner/organizer.)

I then made a quick little to do list and gift list on word printed out and attached to some red card with ribbon. In the middle pocket I added an envelope that I cut down and decorated using some more clip art from Tami’s blog (Thank you  Tami!) to use as storage for receipts. To finish off  I gave every thing a bit of a spray with  glimmer mist for fun!
