Invitations Are DONE!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Finally. I only started the whole process in… JANUARY. See them here!

Finished invitation

The only thing I have left to do is to finish the announcements that are heading to Vietnam. They won’t have the scroll for easier postage. We’re heading to the post office today to send them on their way. I don’t think it will be complete in one trip though since they’ll be stamped boxed by box.

I made Karen the guinea pig and sent hers out last week. She received it yesterday and gushed! I’m excited. His mom also received all of the hand delivered invitations so a handful of people have received theirs too. She excitedly told me that everyone thought they were great. If you don’t like them, don’t tell me, lol.

Next: panels. I am REALLY looking forward to non-paper crafts. I can’t wait to pick up my paint brush!

Envelopes

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

When you start adding the costs of everything up, the cents start turning into dollars. The next thing you know, we want to add other “stuff” and we have to cut back SOMEWHERE.

Well, I decided to make enclosure envelopes. It’s not a difficult task. It’s just tedious. After a week of measuring, cutting, scoring, and folding, I am ALMOST done. I just need to do some gluing. It’s one of those details that no one will ever really recognize the effort poured into it, but it was worth it to save some time money and have invitations that will look exactly as we had envisioned. Ok, maybe that I envisioned. Donny isn’t one to envision envelopes. He DID help me though!

To prevent ruining a surprise in your mailbox, the documentary photos that I have taken will not be put online until after they are sent.

The most obnoxious task is coming up soon, however. I purchased cardstock to print our custom enclosure cards and they will not go through our bottom-fed HP printers. Not one out of two. We’re going to borrow someone else’s, but I will just let all brides know that if you think you’ll be able to load your 100# plus cardstock through a bottome feeder printer CONSISTANTLY, you are out of your mind. My samples printed earlier… the paper tricked me. I a smarter though and I WILL win.
