600 and counting!

Standard

invite 1This is an invitation that I designed for my friend Kristie’s daughter. She wanted something to reflect her lace dress with swirls and pearls. The belly band was embossed with a Mr & Mrs embossing folder and the inserts and invitation also were embossed.  Pearls were added to the invitation and belly band. The jacket provided a place to hold every thing together including a photo of the Bride & Groom.

Originally Kristie was going to make them herself. My husband and I were in the states in February for our Daughters marriage and I helped Kristie get every thing she needed to make these, assuring her that she could do this herself with my help via Facetime and me having the typesetting set up for her. What was I thinking???? When I realised she was making 600 invitations! That is a huge task even for me who is very experienced. So my lovely husband suggested I fly over and help get them made. In the end I was there for 8 weeks and my poor husband regretted suggesting it! I admit that it was a little long…….. in my defence my reasoning was sound, make the invitations, spend some time with my daughter, go to the wedding, celebrate my grand daughters birthday and celebrate Kristie and my birthday (same day)    In the end we made over 600 invitations! The whole family helped and it was lots of fun! I have a little video of Kristie’s boys  using the cuttlebug, it was hilarious, unfortunately I can’t up load it on this version of wordpress.

cute little wedding favours

Standard

favoursHow cute are these little favours! A great way to combine both favour and place card. So easy to make if you are a DIY bride. Big enough to hold 3 Cadbury heart chocolates.

Take a piece of paper 14.5cm long x 7.5cm wide. On the long side score at 2.5cm, 7cm, 9.5cm and 14cm  On the short side score at 2.5cm  Be sure to have the pattern running the right way when scoring.

I got this idea from a tutorial on  pootles.co.uk  Tiny Treat Box see tutorial here            I  adjusted the size to suit my project.
