DIY Save the Dates finished!

Hey ladies! Thanks to HMM and Kohler, I've been inspired and got the courage to do our own save the dates! My fiance and I did them today and I'm so happy with the results. I took these pics with my camera phone and it doesnt do them justice! The pic is distorted but the real ones are much better. I will try to find my camera to take better pics. I do have to admit, these weren't easy to make but in the end, we're totaly glad we did them ourselves. I almost gave up today and went on a hunt for regular plain gold stamp ink and stumbled upon a stamping heaven of a shop in the West Village. The owner totally coached me and sent me back home to try embossing again! Hey ladies Thanks to photo 55428-1Hey ladies Thanks to photo 55428-2We embossed them with fine gold powder and the backing is platinum. We also embossed the envelopes. All materails were purchased at micheals with coupons of course! We had to buy: A paper cutter, card stock, card stock envelopes, embossing ink, embossing powder, embossing machine. I will be adding crystals to accent them.

thank you!


cryflore, you TOTALLY could do them. If i could do it, anyone can! Its hard at first but as you get going, it becomes easy. I'd be more than happy to walk anyone through it. You just gotta have patience and practice before you make the final ones.


i dunno if we're gonna do the invites. lol. too much pressure!

thank you thank you!! its thrilling to be a diy girl! haha. I got that stamp from Micheals. Martha Stewart has this kit for like 13 bucks where you make your own monogram. And its versatile. Its not permanent. It sticks on and you can unstick it. So i will be keeping it and maybe making any future invites or monograms that come my way :)
