@actime:  & @couawilou:  

Damn guys….great job!!!

Here are mine…I’ve posted them before πŸ™‚

My shoes…

My centerpiece mockup:

Toasting flutes:

My 1st attempt at my invites….probably will be too expensive with the crystal pin so I will probably have to come up with something else. (My sister said it looks too much like a garter πŸ˜‰

I have so many more left to do!!

Here are my currently completed DIYs…

Custom printed envelope liners. I used ‘paper bag’ colored paper, chestnut colored ink and a woodgrain stamp from Paper Source. I also used their envelope liner templates. This project took me a couple of hours to trace, cut out and stamp 20 liners.

 

These are my invites that I put together with pieces from Cards & Pockets. The monogram was a stock design from Cards & Pockets too. The interior of the card features an invite that I purchased from Download and Print that was customizable.

These have been a labor of love, I’ve broken it up over several sessions but I’ve put a good 4+ hours into designing and assembling these 20 invites.

Here they are packaged with our wedding map from NattyMichelle on Etsy whom I HIGHLY recommend. Putting these together was the easiest part of the assembly process!

 

Here’s an ‘in process’ picture of my recessional flags for my ring bearers/flower girl. I’ve gone back and darkened up the letters. I intentionally left the edges raw, I think it makes it more rustic and childlike as if they put them together.

And last but not least, another NattyMichelle design. My bridal shower thank you cards! I sent her photos of my dress and my bridal party dresses and she designed these cards! The design was also featured on my bridal shower invites.

 

I have so many DIYs left, I’ll try to keep up as I complete them!
