1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / A couple of my wedding crafts... *a few pics* on: March 13, 2008 08:57:49 AM
I haven't really gotten into really making the stuff I need for my October wedding but I'm starting.  

I had asked a question about my guest book and ended up with this:


I found an 8x8 scrapbook and recovered it with scrap paper.  I bought the felt (orange piece) on ebay and got the stickers for 50%.  I love how it turned out!  

My centerpieces:




I'm having a cake on each of my 25 tables and had a hard time finding inexpensive cake plates so I came up with the idea of using stacked wreaths.  I got lucky and found some of them at Dollar Tree and the rest at Hobby Lobby for half off.  So instead of spending $20 each on glass stands I've got something more my style for less than $5 each!  I'm not sure about the raffia yet - I might be making felt bows instead.  I really don't like the second one where the raffia is wrapped - it's yucky!  

Can't wait to share more pics with you gals!  Whatcha think?
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Invitation questions... on: February 21, 2008 01:11:13 PM
So I was going to order my invitations and save myself the headache of making them.  I just went to price them and they were going to cost me over $350 and that's without reply cards or stamped envelopes, or shipping.  Ugh, right?   Angry

So, I found some other stuff from Paper Source that I like but I have questions...

1) If I use a chocolate brown card, can I stamp the front with orange or lime green and will it stand out? 

2) Is it going to be cheaper to make my own?  I need about 250 invites...

3) What is embossing exactly?  Shocked

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Guest book? on: February 14, 2008 11:08:47 AM
I bought this really cute felt ribbon thinking I could use it make my own guest book.  (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=290170949040&_trksid=p3984.cWON.m313.lVI

I cannot find a plain 8x8 brown scrapbook to use and I need other ideas.  All of the books I find either have a picture hole or something I don't want. 

Any other ideas?  Would it be easy to recover a regular guest book in material that I like?
