Wedding Invitations v2.0

I mentioned yesterday that I'd tell you about the other project I'm working on. Here it is.


Nick and I are having a second wedding reception in the UK in September. We went out to Paper Source on Saturday to pick up some supplies. Nick has been an excellent helper this time around. He did all the printing! YAY!! I've mailed the majority of these now, so that's a big thing off the to do list.


We've got thank you's to send out too. I spent some time working on the graphics for the cd we'll be sending with the cards. I found some great blank cd's that look like a record. You know, old school vinyl records? My friend Dan did the original caricature and a cool Yosemite background & I did the layout & the disk. I think the labels turned out very cool. Now I just have a million cd's to burn, bits & pieces to print, and lots to assemble.


After Paper Source we headed down the street to Scrapbook Territory. The racks of paper in this place are such an inspiration! I got a new monkey stamp & some papers to make gift tags. Nick was nice enough to get me these cute buttons! They'll be seen on monkeys soon enough.

If you dont mind me asking, is it yourself or Nick who come from the UK?

Those records look absolutely adorable. You are obviously very talented.

I just found your website. I was looking for ideas for making labels and found you there. I have a quetion about your script on the label. What font is this, I never saw it. I made my labels on Word, did you have software for yours?
I was concerned about fraying too, and used an iron on fusable fabric on the backside. It even enhanced the color on the front.it's lots of fun to experiment, Rita

All of that stuff is so cute! Great job. I especially love the LP-looking cds. Those are perfect.
