Hey Everyone! I'm so happy that Friday is just around the corner. Today, I'm sharing a quick little dinner invite that you can whip up and send out to your friends. I've been wanting a great, versatile invitation stamp set and Unity Stamp Company made that happen! It's wonderful! When hand making party invitations, you want to make sure they are simple enough to complete them all. I used patterned paper and dressed them up with the flowers. The flowers can be left off and replaced with jewels or pearls for a flatter invitation (for mailing purposes). The options are endless with this set and I thank Unity for creating it for us all to use! This new stamp set was designed just because of my special request! You can do the same thing over at Unity! Check out their blog posting here! The stamp set is revealed!
Regarding envelopes, I have a recommendation. I reviewed the Ultimate Crafter's Companion for SCS last year and really liked their envelope box template. Their template allows you to make a quick and easy envelope that gives you that extra space for bulky cards. Here is my posting about the review here and the SCS link here. At the SCS link, you can find other links directly for the Crafter's Companion. I hope that helps you all with your envelope and shipping woes with those bulky cards! You're probably going to have to pay additional postage, but it's all worth it in the end to send your beautiful hand crafted projects!
I made it a bit vintage. I've been on that trend lately! I wish I could invite you all over for a dinner party. I'd love to that because I love entertaining! It's so much fun to host an event from the planning to the preparation to the big show! Well, this invite will have to work for now!
Thanks for coming by and taking a peek! If you have a chance, hop on over to the Unity forum at SCS to join in on some Hip Hop fun!
