shop the sample room

Posted in random tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:10 am by meant to be sent

i’m starting off the year trying to get organized and i finally got around to going thru a good chunk of my leftover stock from  projects over the past few years…that means there are lots of odds-n-ends for sale in my etsy shop!

head on over and check it all out (and please excuse the iphone pics!) most items are perfect for a small quantity project or making samples, but there are some larger quantities mixed in there too! lots of metallic envelopes and card stock…some matte and linen too. and soon will have some fun sample packs stuffed with pocket folds, envelopes, belly bands, seals and various scrap cards perfect for making sample invitations — perfect if you’re just starting out or just feeling creative :)

i’ll be adding more stuff this week too (even a corner rounder and a silhouette sd!), so keep checking back!

happy shopping! :)

this inivte is sure to remind guests of the feeling of sand between their toes and the crash of ocean waves! it is made with metallic cream and palm pattern paper with a starfish accent that doubles as a magnet that is finished with natural raffia ribbon. (also available without magnet) the inserts (rsvp postcard and events card) are secured to the lid of the box with a vellum band, and the layered invite is set on a bed of raffia and all is in a matte chocolate box that is finished with a custom label that seals the box so that it can be dropped right in the mail!

here it is! this super fun, modern invite incorporated a bubble theme and an super unique monogram seal made using real sand! these are so neat…like your initials written in the sand! the seal secured a textured metallic pocket fold with a the layered invite and two stepped inserts. one informed guests of the various events throughout the weekend and the other was a postcard rsvp. a custom designed monogram postage stamp and envelope design finished it off. stay tuned for more coordinating items…a seating chart…table numbers…program fans and menus!
