while cleaning up, i realized I had forgotten about a bag with a couple of other items. (it turns out, i am a DIY-a-holic). LOL i don't know what I'm going to do with myself after the wedding when I have not reason to DIY like crazy!

 

photoshare cards - printed them on cardstock purchased from staples. then spent an evening cutting them with my friskars trimmer - ugh, i tried to cut them with the big ccutter at work and they turned out all crooked since the cutter's guides have all rubbed off.

luggage tags - i didn't want to fuss with personalizing everyone's info and figure they wouldn't use it again, so i did up some business cards on vistaprint and put "Can You Read This? Then you're too close to my bag" on the front, with the resort's address. Then put a label on the back with the person's name on it. i used the laminator at work with heat seal luggage tags i bought from staples.

engagement photos album for parents - both our parents are not good with computers and hate clicking on a screen. so after reading http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wiki/how-to-make-a-wedding-photo-book i started to follow photobook girl's blog. i've always been into scrapbooking so a photobook is like scrapbooking of the digital-kind. on her blog she posted an area for "free" photobooks http://www.photobookgirl.com/blog/free-photo-books-online-gotta-love-it/. i went with MyPublisher's offer $20 gift card to new customers and purchased 2 softcover 5x7 books and just paid for shipping. Super easy program to use and shipping was really fast too. I think they came out great. I am thinking I might do my own BD shoot album on my own.

Pashmina Tags - I haven't received them, but have prepared the template already. I hate waiting for online items to arrive, lol. Not very patient. I did the tags in Illustrator, and attached the PDF, but also attached a powerpoint version in case anyone needs a starting point to work from.

Wow Rose you are aaamazing!! I love all your DIYs!!!

 

I made very similar luminarias! I saw them on etsy and decided I could make them for cheaper! hehe

Are you concerned about them blowing over the in wind? I'm trying to think of a way to make them more stable! Either a highball glass or a wineglass inside should work well. Or cheap clear plastic cups with sand in the bottom :)

thanks heather!

 

i know! much cheaper to DIY  =)  but so easy to get addicted!

 

i have been trying to think of a way to keep them from blowing away. i thought about making some sort of bottom for them, but glue and tape, etc. will show through....hmmm a glass or a cup inside would be a good idea. going hit up a dollar giant or something and see what sort of glass, tealight holder or plastic cup might work.  thanks!

 

....another day closer!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
