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!

hydrangea invites

I had some time this week to spit out some upcoming summer wedding invites for a friend of a friend. Her flowers are mostly going to be green hydrangeas, and she wanted that to be the look of the invite – can’t go wrong with floral! I love hydrangeas (personally drawn to the white ones) but naturally I had a blast with these – a no brainer! One of my good friends had these flowers in her wedding bouquets a few years ago, so I dug up some photos from her beautiful wedding (sniff, sniff) and found I had some first hand inspiration! The greens are so beautiful! I tried them on the last of the linen paper I had, and while I love linen, I’m going to try some cardstock for a little brighter color! To the paper store I’ll go (look out!) The navy envelopes look really great (her other color) with the bright green (and against my new tile!) and they will all be tied together with a matching satin ribbon. Love it! I also might try to talk her into some simple white envelope liners depending on the paper she chooses, because I’m a geeky paper lover like that! Can’t wait to start on the rest of my summer wedding projects – I hope they’re as enjoyable as these!
