here they are...finally!

All I can say is that I am glad it is Friday...I pretty much flew through my Thursday...worked until 5:30pm, hurried and ate a yummy dinner prepared by Ashley, went to David's Bridal for a fitting, then to Joann's for some reception decorations...then back home to help pick the wedding menu, whew, I was tired.
Wedding stuff is starting to really get stressful (as I knew it would). So that being said today is a quick post.

Here are some photos of Ashley's wedding invitations that were mailed last week (yeah! that was a great feeling).

Feel free to email me or leave a comment if you have any questions on how to make them...let me just say if you are making more than 100, it is A LOT of work and very time consuming, so start early.

I have to say, that I was very happy with the finished project...just glad they are finished.

Isn't the picture of Ashley cute...posing with the completed invites:D
Have a Terrific weekend!

I hope to get some stamping done, so I have some exciting things to post next week;D

I LOVE your blog….just wanted you to know that I nominated you for a blog award. Don’t feel “obligated” to respond, but just wanted you to know you have a BIG fan out there!! Thanks for sharing your incredible ideas. You inspire me so much!

These are just gorgeous. I found them when I did a search for wedding invites on SCS to get ideas for mine!
Just curious how it all fits together and what size the RSVP cards are (I'm trying to figure out what size is mailable)?

Hi! I absolutely LOVE your blog. You inspire me! My DD is getting married next June. I'm especially interested in your wedding invites you made. You did a BEAUTIFUL job! Any help would be appreciated! Thank you! :)

These are gorgeous! I also found them by doing a wedding invites search on Splitcoast. I hope my wedding invites turn out half as great as yours did!

Hi again... hoping you get this so you can send me the directions via email on the wedding invites. Especially interested in the folder envelope thingy! ;)

THANKS so much.... I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!

Really like your invite idea. I'm looking at making my own too, I was wondering if you could tell me approx how much they cost to make, what supplies you used. They look quite thick in the picture. Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

These invitations are so cute. I have been given the task of making them for my sister's wedding. I would like to do something similar to this. Would you be able to give me an idea on the sizing of everything? I am fairly new to stamping (1 year and counting).

Wouldn't you know it? My girlfriend called in my offer of doing shower invitations for her brother's wedding. Apparently they were so impressed, they want me to do the invitations! I love what you posted on SCS, and was hoping you'd be so kind as to share dimensions, hints, tricks, and anything else you can think of!

I'm at and would truly appreciate your help!

Gretchen, Well, I was asked to do the invitations for a dear friend of mines daughter. I came across yours on SCS site. I absolutely love the invitations you did for your daughter. I was wondering (3 years later) if you still have the directions on making them? I would so love to have this as one of the options I use. If this is not possible I understand. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.
