I’m a graphic designer so it all went very very smoothly until I fell in love with some discontinued cardstock. *shakes fist at evil cardstock discontinuers*

I already ordered matching envelopes. I contacted my paper supplier and they said they had 52 parent sheets of it (23″ x 35″) and we were just going to cut them down to the size I needed… then I found out they were discontinued… I called the supplier to double check I’d get them, they said since they were disc. they’d give it to me for free, well it didn’t show up and they told me they couldn’t find it, that it was probably thrown away because people just don’t buy that few sheets when they’re buying paper that big, and they were taking up space.

So I ordered online, hoping to have it by thursday so it could print and be die cut by friday and we could put them together this weekend, just to find out they didn’t have it in stock, they ran out and would have to get it from somewhere else…

So now I’m having to wait until monday… I just got really excited thinking it was going to be pulled off and that we’d get to put them together this weekend and my bubble was just burst. 🙁

So though a bee hasn’t helped me with this, it is my biggest paper flop ever. It isn’t my fault but it is quite the mess.

However… the bees did prove useful as a source of inspiration to do something really cool with the invites when I could have easily gotten away with something uber simple, and I am so so so glad I did… they will be awesome. 🙂

Lol I am watching the office currently and I am in love with different weights of cardstock, so I think I am in the same boat as both of you!

And the bees have pulled through in a lot of cases–never knew I needed Out of Town bags or what to put in them. Needed advice when things weren’t going my way! And the hive… you guys rock!
