Transformation Tuesday: Custom Wedding Invitations

One of the biggest joys I get from being the Papercrafting Passionista is the custom orders that friends and family have requested.  I'm sure you've noticed I've been a little on hiatus lately, and that's because I had an order for some wedding invitations that took up majority of my free time this month.  I am excited to share my creations with you here, exclusively for my Blog Readers!

Here they are:


I used a retired Thinlit Die from the So Detailed Thinlits from last year's Occasions Catalog.  I just knew I would have a use for that die someday!  Ha!  It was definitely a labor of love, hand-cutting 250 of those gates!  And it also wore on my Big Shot Plates to the point where they snapped in half!  BUT, OMG, so worth it!  And I would do it all over again!

Here's what the invitation looks like disassembled:


I did all of the graphic design work, too.  So that RSVP Card and the Information Card was all created by me.  I even hand-stamped the hearts on the Information Card and the Medallions.  Those were from the Sealed With Love Stamp Set that was already retired from last year's Occasions Catalog.  I will truly never get rid of that stamp set!  I have used it so much!

Here's just the invitation:


And then a close up of the RSVP Card and the Information Card:



I am so pleased with how these turned out and the Bride was just "obsessed" and she couldn't "stop staring at them!" (her words!) 

So if you feel like you need a little Papercrafting Passionista for your Special Occasion, please Contact Me and let's chat about how I can make something special just for you!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space? I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability. Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa
