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! :)



thursday purseday…late, but worth the wait

Posted in thursday purseday tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:12 pm by meant to be sent

admittedly, i am not quite in the groove with thursday purseday yet…but i will get there! to make up for my tardiness (and lack of posts!) i am featuring three FABULOUS new arrivals. two from kate spade and one from a new found etsy fave of mine, oatmeal and lace.

first up, the lovely frosted felt treesh by kate spade. a fantastic combination of shiny and soft with some sparkle. and as usual the sweet interior liner. LOVE.


another kate spade cutie, but decidedly more glam…the night sky dolly. perfect for the upcoming holiday season or any fab night on the town.

keep your eyes peeled for many many more kate spade picks…there are so many great new styles it was really hard to choose!


and this cutie by oatmeal and lace falls right in line with the cozy theme…i just love the flower detail and the peek of the pattern liner! be sure to check out the rest of her super cute styles too!

as you may have noticed, i just LOVE mixing textures…both in my own invitation designs (maybe some shiny metallic or satin against some matte cotton stock) and in apparel. these new kate spade lovelies definitely fit the bill! i just LOVE the way the soft grey wool flannel looks with the shimmery metallic bow. so fun! enjoy!

designed for a seaside wedding in mexico, this sand and sea inspired invitation is tropical elegance. it has a subtle palm graphic throughout the printed design that echos the pattern on the pocket fold. it is carried out in the three alternating color inserts so that when they are all next to eachother, one single palm leaf is created.

the invite and inserts are housed in a shimmery patterned pocket fold and secured with a matching palm patterned vellum band. the ensemble is mailed in a coordinating metallic lined envelope with the couples graphic printed on the back.
