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

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

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape  has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid  eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*. And just like clothing, one size and one style does not  fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best  for your eyes! Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes: Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best! Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, ther
