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: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

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

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
