bridal shower glitz

showerGold has been my biggest obsession lately. Jewelry, belts, papers, cards, ribbons, you name it… all I want is GOLD!

So, naturally when I saw this sparkly gold paper at the Paper Source, I NEEDED to find a project for it! Luckily a friends upcoming bridal shower needed invitations (well, let’s be serious, I would have talked myself into getting it for something..) Her beach wedding is in Mexico (which I’ll be enjoying in two short weeks – not to brag, or anything) and her color is sea green. After deciding to incorporate some new fonts and similar colors into the invite, I thought the gold paper gave it a little glitz along with the rhinestone (how fitting, right?) and looks great with the darker sea color envelopes (the A6 envelopes also from Paper Source, my favorite). After a night of cutting, gluing, and stamping, I have to say I think they turned out great! I’m still finding glitter all over the house, and sometimes on the dog, but this is the price we pay for fun crafts! I can’t wait to use the other colors too!

that time of the year…

They’re engaged!

I had the weekend to come up with something for two of my good friends upcoming fall engagement party. Between her brother’s wedding, and my brother’s upcoming reception, we’ve been awfully tied up with parties, favors, flowers, invites, etc. – it’s been a busy summer! One wedding down one to go! The work is mostly done, so now it’s time to focus on her upcoming wedding! Hooray for a new round of wedding chaos!

She liked the idea of a fall theme, and I loved this leafy vintage inspired paper for the awesome envelope liners – my new crafty obsession! I think they came together quite nicely, if i don’t say so myself! Looking forward to a great year of wedding planning fun! I couldn’t be happier for two of my favorite people!

fancy DIY envelope liners

I Love them! I saw these liners at The Paper Source awhile back and have been lusting after them ever since! They are the perfect thing I need to spice up my brother’s wedding invitations! I decided to try and make my own to save a few dollars, The Paper Source has beautiful liners and paper, but can be tricky to use while on a budget.

1.) Choose a paper! The sky is really the limit here- I can only imagine using vellum and textured fiber paper (so cool!) but I chose a brown, seamless, floral patterned scrapbook paper (59 cents a sheet at Hobby Lobby) to go with the fall theme of my invite. The colors matched perfectly!Find some scrap cardstock to make a template. 2.) trace your envelope all the way around I used A2 envelopes from Paper Presentation. 3.) Next, cut 3/4″ off the bottom of your template. Place the template inside your envelope and it should fit just underneath the seal!

4.) Line up your template to the edge of the pretty paper and trace. Lining it up allows you to use the already straight edges, and usually allows for more use- and Viola! You’ve made your liner! Once you’ve cut out all your liners, it’s time to crease them.

5.) Take your envelope with the liner inside and fold over as you would to seal it, to crease the paper good before you glue it. This makes sealing the envelope easier. 6.) Take your Elmer’s rubber cement and score JUST the flap part of liner. Remember a little goes a long way – if you use less, you’ll avoid the mess! Let them sit for an hour or so before putting in the invitation, and you’re all set!

A beautiful detail to an otherwise ordinary envelope!
